Nice ride, I've been thinking about a convertible. The Goldwing almost qualifies as a convertible.

Good looking 94.

I do white, it's in the same family as Alan's. I don't think it looks too girly. Funny how many mc guys are also car guys.



What lies beneath:


Wanna race? It's faster than either of my mc's, but slower than a 'Busa. It should do mid-low 11s in the quarter next spring (about 600HP @ 4700lbs). Enough to get me kicked out, since there's no cage.

Nice lightning! I love those things. Fast trucks are great, I miss my old Cummins rocket ship that would embarrass most "fast" cars between lights.

I've had a few low 11 second fox bodies, a worked over Merkur XR4Ti (german version of the SVO turbo 4 cyl), and right now we are (slowly) building my wife a 65 mustang coupe with an explorer sourced 5.0 (same heads and intake ford sells as GT-40 pieces), a TKO T-5, 4 wheel discs, and a 8.8 rear with Currie guts. It's going to be a vintage road course clone instead of a straight line car and hopefully an auto-x runner.

Day1:



What it sorta looks like now, I had a hell of a time getting the wheels for the look I wanted, 68 Cobra factory steelies.



The next project I have cooking in my head is a 32 ford highboy .......

Thanks! Nice Westy in the background. I used to play around with Subarus quite a bit, thought a 2.2L conversion would be nice.

Rod parts are pretty easy to find these days if you don't mind repro parts. I've considered building a T bucket myself.

Mom told Kyle he could have it when she passed away but it doesn't seem like the right car for a 16 year old boys first car.
Matt I bought a real nice 1965 with a 6 cyl. a few years ago for a $1000.00. It was white and real clean inside and out. I played with it for a summer and sold it in the fall for $3000.00. If it would have had a V8 I would have kept it. Fun little car to bang around in and got lots of looks but the little 6 was lame for a sports car.
Ruppster, nice looking truck.

Nice. I've got a 94 lightning, but sadly it only runs 13s. It's a lot of fun on the street, and a great tow vehicle.

I traded a boat I had nothing in straight across for our '65, 90k original miles and had been in a barn since 1980. I drove it around a bit before i decided the brakes were too shitty and the C4 wasn't shifting too well.....It got pushed to the back of the garage until after the house is done.

That convertible is waaaay to nice for a 16 year old......however, I had two 5.0's in high school and I'm still here....

This was the newer one, 347 stroker in this one, ran a 11.26 on the shittiest slicks ever and 3.73 gears. I was 17 and my mom took this picture in front of their house.....



my 98 GT vert.


and two more stupid toys...

We spent most of saturday car shopping for Terri a new or used car. I had no idea what we wanted to buy or what was even out there. Ended up with this http://mmgauto.com/new-inventory/19XFB2F58CE104430 picking it up tonight. Shes real happy to have a new car since she has drove junk cars for the last 10 years. I havent had a car payment in 15 years so I am not as happy.

Not much fun at a drag strip, but perfect for SE Ohio roads.

I got to take a few hot laps in a warmed over one of those at mid Ohio several years ago. It was a hoot.
