    Reminds me of one of those BMW Isettas only squarish. Seems similar in design though -being 3 wheeled and all.

    I would actually guess a garage-built electric car.

    Thanks, so stoked!

    GOB, yep, that's my cockpit, right there, only white leather. My buddy I got it from went through it all, (he found it) full fluid systems flush, new tires, etc.

    All the electrical stuff, rubber, etc seems perfect. It was in a barn, but dry and stable environmentally. Upstate NY doesn't get wicked hot, no salt in our air, so other than birds droppings on the roof causing some decent pitting (bummer) it's just like the day it went in. Doctor owned it, drove it sparingly, died within a few years of purchasing it, and the family just put it up on blocks and forgot about it.....

    SSue, that is a 1984 Citi Commuter. Electric, made in the US. My buddy got the Benz from is a bit of a micro/oddball car freak Subaru 360's, Honda S600, Datsun 1600 and 2000's, and a good collection of other wild stuff....

    Oops. Head on at 50mph. Other driver was in my lane. Pinky and ring finger on my right had still tingle 15 years later.

    Not sure how Classic it was, but I know there are some old VW fans on here

    This replaced the Scirocco for a while, until I got bored. I dig the old water coolers.

    IF52 how did you like that 944? I've been looking at those online lately and they seem pretty cool
    All vintage all the time. Nothing like a nice chromo frame with some properly adjusted cantilevers.

    My 1965 Stingray...

    Here's one of my favorite cars, my 1965 Stingray roadster-I put a really hot cam in it and it was a blast to drive-but, at 8 MPG, kinda expensive...

    Here is another of my favorite cars. I restored it in the late 70's-took about 4 years-wish I still had it!

    haha...awesome! Almost looks like you're sitting in one of those little pedal cars.

    And love the Stingray...that car just says "get outta my way or I'm gonna beat your *$#"

    It was actually a 1988 924S, which was for all intents and purposed a 924 body with a 2.5L 8V 944 motor in it. But to answer you question, I liked it a lot. Handled like it was on rails as the saying goes. Koni yellows all around and GC coilover kit up front. Slightly heavier springs and larger T-bars, 951S sway bars.

    Would love to have had more power, but not much you can do to the 8V NA motors, so I made the car lighter instead. Factory delete kit for the AC, manual steering, manual windows, manual sunroof, Momo seats, removed the hatch release motor, no rear wiper, etc. I had a set of NOS euro bumpers but never got around to installing them. I think all told about 200lbs lighter than stock.

    Not too keen that they look so similar to the BRZ. They didn't even try and make it different looking. Both seem a bit underpowered ya?

    Hey I had a few of those when I was at college. Looks like the 220SE higher end model. I had a 4 door, a coupe and a convertible. Fun cars...classy interior all wood and leather...The only modification I made was, I had a cactus growing in the ashtray on the top of dash...well it was the 70's after all.

    They are a bit underpowered stock in my opinion, but it doesn't take much to give it a little boost. Exhaust and a drop-in filter helped quit a bit and a tune, short of F/I, should be just the ticket!

    Co-developed with Subaru, built in one of Subaru's Fuji plants. Most of it is suby, other than the engines direct injection system and a few other bits. And no awd...which is fine with me...I'm all about the beauty of rear-wheel drive.

    Great thread! Some super cars posted here!

    My father worked at General Motors for his entire career and even though that was his vocation, his avocation was restoring and modifying automobiles. He was an incredibly talented fabricator, engineer, welder and mechanic. This dates all the way back to 1959 when at 18 years of age he got his first car, a 1940 Ford, and turned it into a hot rod:



    He died just about a year ago and with his passing, I inherited several of his vehicles. One of his favorites was his 1974 Porsche 914. In the mid 1980s, he thought it would be pretty cool to perform a V8 conversion. I spent countless hours in his garage working on this project. It was a major undertaking as it required adding a cooling system. He also added the fender flares as well as a 911 suspension. He finished it in 1991 and was very proud of it. I always thought it was pretty cool but I have a cousin, who is like a brother to me, who really loves this car. I decided to gift it to him and he recently had it shipped out to Arizona. He brought it to a place that specialized in 914 V8 conversions and had a new cooling system put in as well as updating some of the engine. A lot has changed in 20 years since the car was completed!

    Here's me and my Dad during the build process (maybe 1989):



    Here it is completed in 1991:



    Getting some sun waiting for the transport truck in front of my Dad's house on Cape Cod:



    New home in Arizona:





    Getting some updates:







    My cousin picked it up on Friday and the car looks and runs great. He's looking for some Fuchs wheels at the moment and that will really make the car look pretty sweet.

    Oh, and yeah, that's a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427/4-speed. Sex on wheels…..





    P.S. The bay on the right in garage in the background has a lift. My father added the third bay in 2001 and specifically designed the garage to accept the lift. I was one lucky guy to have such a great resource for working on my own cars (I'm on car #30).

    Here is 1 for the classic car section. 1992 BMW Z1. Since 2005 (i think) it can be legally imported to the US under a classic car limit of 2500mi/year. A total of 8000 were built.

    Cool, I've had an e10 and an e30. Great cars. How much weight will the small block add to the front of the 2002?

    nice! it will add "some" weight :-P

    still deciding between fender flares and tubbing it in the rear, but either way the 205's in the back won't be adequate! it won't likely see any track time... just some innocent hooning. here's a couple pics of it as it is.

    i'm also heading out to the track in a couple hours for a long weekend with the spec e30 racecar. i'll snap a couple pics of that one too.

    My first car was a 1960 Buick LeSabre hardtop. I bought it in 1982 when I was 15 years old in Bakersfield, CA from an old guy that had bought it new. 60k miles, all original, the only thing we did to it was replace the carpet, front seat coverings, and rebuild the drum brakes. Unfortunately I don't have any photos of it, but it looked almost exactly like this one, just replace the convertible top with a white hardtop:

    OT: VRC Picture Thread of Classic Cars-1960-buick-lesabre-convertible-red-ra-nf.jpg

    In 1985, my mom talked me into selling it because it was "too old and got bad gas mileage" (gas was a buck a gallon). Almost immediately after selling I regretted it, so to get even with my mom I bought this thing, a 1964 Beetle that had been partially converted to a Baja Bug. The body work was already done, I did the suspension myself, but other than having a stinger tailpipe the engine was a stock 1300. Trailered it out to the desert on the weekends, drove it around town when I wasn't on my motorcycle (a 1975 Honda 350 Four), and eventually sold it for more than I paid for it (around $400 if I remember right).

    OT: VRC Picture Thread of Classic Cars-mybug8-86_zps377d52f5.jpg

    After the bug, I had a 1963 LeSabre with a Wildcat 445 engine (445 lb-ft of torque, 401 cu in), in 1988 when I was in the Air Force stationed in Hawaii I bought a '75 Olds Delta 88 (455 cu in Rocket V8) that was a retired Army staff car, and in the 90's I owned an '84 Jeep CJ7, but otherwise all of my cars have been from the 1990's or later. There are a list of cars that I want (early 70's Nova SS, Roadrunner, an FJ40) but until I finally get settled in a house with room to build a shop I have to keep dreaming.

    Not so much to show off the car, but a film maker from Hollywood contacted me a week or so ago, they needed a 4 door, early 70's sedan, appropriate for an upper middle class family.

    Agreed to rent them my 1972 Mercedes 280 SEL, and it's featured prominently in their haunted house indie film they are shooting in out area right now.

    I got a few screening shots of it the other day. and I have to say, between the car, and the house they are using, it looks pretty damn haunting....

    So cool!

    Thanks! It's been fun to drive around, feel like such a pimp.

    I equate it to a mahogany Chris Craft for the road.....

    Jack's was a '72 600 LWB, near as I can tell, same car, just stretched for limo duties.

    still deciding between fender flares and tubbing it in the rear, but either way the 205's in the back won't be adequate! it won't likely see any track time... just some innocent hooning. here's a couple pics of it as it is.

    i'm also heading out to the track in a couple hours for a long weekend with the spec e30 racecar. i'll snap a couple pics of that one too.
    I love these things. My favourite BMW.. just second to an eighties cabriolet.

    I finally tracked down a near-replica of my first car! My old one had a 302, but this has a 351 with four-barrel. This was originally a four-speed, but someone installed an auto along the way. It'll go back eventually. I'll also address the steering wheel and wheels at some point, but these Centerlines were exactly what I wanted in the 80s!

    Not sure if that is the spelling of the art of sheet metal repair? In my travels for vintage bikes you meet a lot of interesting people to say the least. One of my hunts took me to a weird address in an area I never new existed down by river where these huge barns/chicken coops had been converted to storage lockers. There were people living in the spaces. Some were out side their lockers cooking food on makeshift bbq's. Ya weird day. When I arrived I meet my contact and he took me around to his various lockers stuffed full of absolute crap. On our back we went thru a barn that had this custom half finished old coup does anyone know what it is or was? It would be a cool car to see on the road.

    I am not much of a car enthusiast but it looks like a Buick Roadmaster, albeit one that has been altered.

    That car has a sordid history. It was repainted. The top was chopped. Raced. I think wrecked. Someone just restored it though.

    A bike by any other name is still a bike.
