Time for a new laptop.

Just puked all over this one.

When I lived in Miami I was getting some trim for my '69 Firebird from a top-notch restoration outfit.

The paintbooth had a new Lamb. Diablo in it getting painted flourescent lime green. 30 grand. We agreed that it was a felony, and I would keep it on the downlow.

I thought the title of this thread was "nice cars that people have deystroyed..."

I'm not seeing much evidence of nice cars in the first place.

I believe that car is still in the Ft. Lauderdale area. It really doesn't look that bad.

One of my local all-time favorites

Happened to be driving by where it's always parked this morning.. took a few snaps with the bad cell phone camera. It's a classic though.

I think they bought every possible stick on piece of chrome, fake vent, etc they could get..
