    Yep, one of the few advantages of being my height - no problem with sport and supercars. Those and fighter jets were tailor made for me.

    My Hunter cruiser tucked away in my father in-law's AZ garage. He's a 567 Chevy guy, but just picked up this Nova II SS last fall.

    I'd assume a 2001 had the 2.7 V6 twin turbo.

    Yeah, it has the 2.7 twin. I put on bigger turbos, fueling, meth injection...the list is so long it hurts. Unfortunately, I have to let this one go.

    The B5 S4 is a serious monster. It's not uncommon for guys to get 700+ out of the engine.

    Being from the south, Georgia originally, I grew up around convertible muscle cars that my dad owned: 69 442 Convert, 68 Firebird 400 Convert, 67 Corvette 427 Convert and a 66 GTO Convert. I wish I had phots on my computer but sadly don't. I have always had a convertible in my life because of that but all have been of the 4x4 variety.
    Here are some I have had:

    Killer Scout II. And I dig FJ60/62's. Look forward to seeing progress on that. I watched a couple come through eBay that were Japanese import RHD diesel high/sky tops and I was close to pullin' the trigger.

    I think I said it before, but the BRE style 510 with the Daisy wheels is awesome.

    Nice to see you still kicking, having your arm around your girl keep the column out of your chest?

    Nice wreck.

    Welcome to my world ...
    I can not watch movies like that or Texas Chainsaw Massacre etc ...


    BTW - love this OT thread as obviously cars are another of my loves. Wish we could import open-bed, 4-door LandCruisers to the US. I am no fan of Toyota but those that are in the deserts of Africa - rock and roll baby!

    Was I OK? Well it was 42 years ago and I'm still here ;-) I got run off the road 1/2 mile from my house, I suspect I floored it to avoid the other car (which fled the scene but anonymously reported the accident). Accident investigation estimated my speed as 70+. If I hadn't hit the stump in the foreground I would gone in a river :-( . Spent a week in intensive care, broke my left ankle (it makes a difference), my right wrist (also makes a difference) 3 ribs and had a brain concussion etc. etc.

    Before the accident the only mark on the car was about an 18" key scratch on the side...after the only body part that was ok was the trunklid ..

    The reason "left, right" was important? A month later I bought the Camaro with a 396, 4 speed....left ankle = clutch...right wrist = shifter...it was interesting driving it home.

    It came from the factory with a 6 cylinder 3 speed on the column, was rebuilt to run B/Modified and basically never saw the street till I bought it. The sellers kept the race engine/trans. and dropped in a beater 396 and Muncie. It and was pretty much in that state when I started building it. It was my everyday transportation but my best 1/4 time was a 10.82. Easily ran all day in the 12s. I never changed the 4/11 gearing for better as I wanted it to stay streetable. It would still easily lift the front end 6".

    I think the question is "AM I okay now?" :-)

    Rumpfy...Yes, I was the driver (thankfully alone) and no, I didn't exactly walked away. My left ankle was under the drivers seat and the transmission was 1/2 way under the passenger seat.
    If you look close (in the other post) you can see the fractured dashboard where my head hit.

    ARS...no, I was going to see my girl and no, it didn't keep the column out of my chest and I've got a 4' scar to prove it.

    The river was about 10 feet behind the Trooper and 20 feet down. I actually met the tow truck driver around 10 years later at a bar. We got talking, his eyes kinda went dark and he asked me to wait a minute.
    He went out to his truck and brought back in a notebook of accidents he had responded to. He showed me the listing for mine with the date, location and outcome. it said "Driver dead on scene" ... chilling!

    Well. We're all happy you turned out okay. Really. What a wreck! You must be beefy and looked after by an angel because, crap, that accident would have killed most of us!

    Do you have more car pics? Please look through boxes and find some! I bet you had a ton of classic cars.

    Now thats freaky. At least you could set the story straight! Cross out 'dead on scene' and replace it with...'inhibited taste in bikes'.

    Classic car, well, classic ute, Australian style.

    OT: VRC Picture Thread of Classic Cars-image012.jpg

    1954 Holden FJ Ute. My grandfather bought it new in December '54. Been in the family since new. Dad and I restored it about 20 years ago, full nut and bolt resto. All stock standard, well, the motor has been balanced and the sun visor is an optional extra.

    Any more Aussie and it would have roo fur in the grille.

    Thanks Jeff.

    Sorry it's not a better photo, you know, without the blanket.

    A few people have offered to buy it. Those that wouldn't take "it's not for sale" are all now on a missing persons list.

    It's an heirloom, and it has some of my knuckle flesh in the suspension.

    Just a screen name I picked that was the car I was driving at the time. Never realized I'd still be using it so many years later

    I'm in the DC/Northern VA area so not a whole lot of snow...probably why it always seems like such a "Kodak moment"

    Hmmmm.... classic car thread on a mountain bike forum... I should have guessed it would be mostly vintage off road vehicles. LOL

    So my blue 57 Ford F-100 finally moved down the road.

    Replaced it with this.

    1973 Mercedes 280 SEL. Barn find, sat for close to 20 years.

    15K original miles, pretty much showroom, has all the original bits and pieces, right down to a mint condition tool kit that was never even been used.

    Not sure if I feel like a diplomat, or James Bond, but I can't wait to get it rolling.

    Even has rain gutters, so I can run the Yakima rain gutter rack I have up in the rafters! Not sure if that's sacrilegious or not, but I'll figure it out.

    Should have it on the road in a month or so.....

    Me too. That would be a blast to ride. Does it have the really cool steering wheel? May be too late.

    Do you have to replace all the electrical and rubber parts? What issues usually arise with a car that's been sitting for decades?
