It's simply a matter of self-respect.

Emergency Update!!

Just got confirmation that I have a deal to swap the '47 Fleetmaster, the '53 Pickup and my bikes (chopper and Buell) for a nice Backdraft Cobra and a convertible Stingray Vette!!

I had a *bad* (like, not good) Cobra replica a few years ago, which sucked, so I'm excited to get a real, factory built car. (They're sold complete, less motor and trans, and use BMW independent suspension so they handle great.) And one of my earliest cool car memories was a ride in a convertible Stingray when I was maybe 9 or 10; I've always wanted one.

Pics to follow when the transporter brings them up from Miami sometime this week.

Oh, you *are* feisty today.

Pic from the guy I'm swapping with. I'll post my own blurry ones when the car gets here.

Great little car. V4 sourced from Ford Industrial. (Think forklift, or really huge pump..) This, along with a sick BMW 320 Alpina and my beloved high-school '66 Riviera, is a car I wish I'd kept.
Love it. My Dad owned a Sonett before I was born. He found great deal on one, drove it home, and it never ran again under his ownership. Sold it a year later. Would love to find a nicely restored example.

Right?!? The horror. It uses BMW suspension and hubs, which opens up the field to all sorts of hideous wheels. I'm going to put it back on Halibrands, or a reasonable facsimile.

I havent seen a good iphone pic yet... So unlike Brain, ill let those pics slide, until you are eligible for a phone upgrade through your service provider... lol jk :P

iPhones are like miatas running aids... they THINK they are doing something great, but more full of fail than anything else.

Great deal on the cars though!!! I personally cant wait to see your crappy iPhone pics of the cars!!! lol oh... and the naked french girl pose... MUST include a cat in them though... lol
