Just what's worth mentioning.

'01 Aprilia Falco... lotsa aftermarket.
Selling that Aprilia was hard... I'll kick my own *** every time I think about it until the day I die. That's overlooking Pt.Mugu airfield.

'19ft Genesis Bowrider... first powerboat.
I've had 4 Hobies but one afternoon I got a bug up my *** and went in 1/2's with a buddy o that machine. It was a great first boat... but my next one will be a 30ft center console with 2x250's (gotta move to the Keys first).

'06 Speed6
Just about to roll over 20k... AWD system sucks, engine sucks, ECU sucks, suspension sucks, aftermarket is ridiculously expensive... nice job Mazda!

Some pics for you guys...Yellow '67 Austin Healey Sprite, Red '68 GTO Conv., Orange Isuzu Amigo, White Durango, Green and burned up '65 VW 21 Window Bus (pic taken about 10yrs after the fire), 64 Vette, Starcraft 1600 Super Sport, 2003 White F-150, Blue RX7, Donzi Classic, Gray Toyota Pickup,...and others not pictured. I tried to pick a representative sample. I don't seem to keep vehicles very long.
Speaking of which, that '67 Sprite is gone and I have a '68 Sprite now.

I'm amazed how many I don't have/can't find pictures of. I'm a car *****. Love 'em and leave 'em. I want to try having one of everything even if it's just for a short while.

Lol, school parking lot and nowhere else to put crap between working on the car means leaving stuff underneath it.

Edit: And sixshooter, more of those bow ornaments on the boat

Only other car besides the Miata was a MK1 MR2.

That car was a blast, besides being ridiculously slow. This picture was on my 16th B-day (parents got me the wheels I wanted), and I was happy.



And the Miata with the same wheels right after I bought it.

You are the only other person I've ever found to know what a Honda NX is, I rode an NX250 for a year. Good little starter bike but the local honda dealer swore it didn't exist.


19psi, How did you like the RSX's? I am thinking about an early on 02-03 for a newer daily driver. I hear the type-s cars have problems with the transmissions?


juxt3r, I've seen that turbo wagon before... Grassroots maybe? Neat car.



My first car, 1991 Nx2000. Recently found it for sale again, but it was looking too rough to want it back.


Second car, 1980 Mercury Zephyr Z7. $100 and drove it home, great beater,


Third, 1991 Mercury Grand Marquis. Police suspension, Mustang HO engine


Fourth, 1996 Probe GT. Found cheap, good DD.


Fifth, 1991 Miata. Someone offered money on the PGT and I wanted to try out the GRM staple car.


Project Cars 68' Fairlane & 71' Malibu, Sedans are cheap!

I had an NX125 as well. Never really rode it on the street, sold it to my brother when I was 16 to pay for computer parts. I was so cool back then. I did manage to fry the clutch on that boke while riding in a very muddy field. That sucked.

I loved that bike. It was slow as ****, and it had the original 1988 tyres on it, but it gave me freedom. I also learned how fricken cold it can be to ride a bike, and that icy roads are painful. I always thought I was pretty cool riding around when I was 15, even if it was an ugly piece of machinery.

It was a fun bike. Took a lot of abuse too (jumps, etc.) I got it up to 63mph indicated once. Had to get my head as low as possible and stay on it for like 1/2 a mile. Also wiped out doing ~30ish on it. Bent the handlebars, misaligned the forks, busted the front brake handle. My leg bled like crazy from that one. Good thing for helmets.

I wanted to buy it back from my bro to ride to work, but my commute takes me on the highway these days. Maybe someday.

No true sleeper is complete without a license plate announcing that it is one.
