Blue Baby Just found this thread.

Don't have any pictures of wife's 2003 Outback Wagon. Its been a great vehicle.

My daily driver, 2005 Magnum R/T. My first new vehicle. It has also been great and a blast to drive.
Dont have any pics handy. Its standard R/T RWD, Hemi, Mineral gray, stock 5 spoke wheels with set of summer tires/rims.

My baby; 1971 Roadrunner (340/TQ, Auto on column). about 24K miles, one other owner, AZ car!


Project that never got finished; 1971 Challenger convertible, T/A clone. Such potential, will probably sell this year...

Louise's baby, our 07 Redline.

Great choice! Now why isn't GM producing something like that (and why aren't the successors to the LNF putting out stock power like that)?

The Focus engine will make a nice swap candidate in 10-15 years into old sports cars - if anyone is still interested in old sports cars then....

skersfan Unfortunately not, sorry Bill We have several trees that were damaged by the storm, a giant oak, I would guess close to 100 years old, that has to be taken down. This weekend was his only spare time to do it other than on company time. 700.00 this weekend, 2900.00 on company time. Will be watching and worrying about where it comes down.

Sorry have been so busy with this storm, work, towers, my road and our trees. It was a never ending battle, but the bridge did not wash out and that was my biggest worry. Living remotely has a lot of pleasures and some things that are not so wonderful. We have to maintain our roads. No snow plows, or crews to fix things. Just the neighbors, and I am about the youngest one. So you know how much work gets done.

skersfan I now know why I have other vehicles. I drove the Skpel today. Battery was gone, drove it down to the shop. The Bridgestones, were just that. It was about 40 degree and it hopped and bounced around like I was on cobble stones. Summer cars, summer tires, I need to remember that.

Neat!

This is me in my 1954 TR-2 at Westwood in BC. Drum brakes meant there was little braking after a lap or so and they are the last car on Earth I'd like to have to throw sideways to slow them down!

Same colour combo as yours, though.

08 Tri Blk For me it's an 05 LJ (as much fun as the Tri Blk just in a different way), the wife drives the 07 Pilot. Both have ~80K on the clock

Somnambulator 2008 Subaru Impreza hatch. it's got 135k on it. only the last 10 were me, but I had to replace the head gaskets, fuel pump, power steering hoses, transmission fluid and radiator to do it. good thing I picked it up for $4k, at least. it's my dd/inclement whether vehicle. with winter tires it's hard to keep it contained!

LOL...I saw a stock PT Cruiser to the quarter mile in about that time.

He was racing a rail dragster that did the 1/4 in about 8.7 seconds.

It was bracket racing so it was funny seeing the PT cruiser get about an 11 second head start over the drag rail. LOL I bet the driver of the dragster was loosing his mind waiting that long.

SamtheSham You turkeys got nothing on me. I went from a smart car to a 09 Sky. On some of the roundabouts near my home it felt like my smart was taking them on two of its four wheels. The Sky takes them on rails like a scalded greyhound. My barn burning, rip your doors off smart did the 1/4 mile in 19.7 seconds. If I passed anybody I had to make sure I had a couple of hours to get the job done and no stagecoach was approaching from behind. In the Sky - even if I posted the sorry numbers above - I still feel like I'm king of the road.

BlueRL OK, now you have done it. That Model A pickup has brought out my '37 Ford Pickup.


PS The engine is a 1970 Cadillac 500 cu in at somewhere near 700HP.
