Great pictures folks! Jerry, you have that 442 backed up against the trailer to prevent theft, not to tow it, right? 8)

Not mine, but my first car, an '84 VW GTI. All of 90hp (Europe got 110) but a real lightweight made it fun to toss into corners. The non-assisted rack and pinion steering had the best I've experienced.

I'm afraid that's not the case. We decided to go on vacation and towed that rented trailer out to Yellowstone and back. On the way out, we got as far as Rapid City, SD and had to have air shocks installed on it. Got 6-8 mpg towing the trailer.

Steve I’m in.

Here is my dream car I built 20 years ago. Had to sell it to feed the family 10 years ago.

It is a 1972 Datsun 510 with a long rod 2 liter naturally aspirated with duel Makuni’s producing 200 hp and 200 ft torque. There is a 260z 5 speed full cage and fully adjustable suspension. It weighed in at 1900 lbs full of fuel. I did all of the fab and suspension. Had the motor and body work done. I started from just a shell.

Old school fun. Man could it carve up the canyons. This is the only car I miss.

Tom, you have great tastes in cars, those were some kinda wonderful. I have wanted a 240Z forever. Now I’m to old and crippled to get in one. But that 510 I think I could still handle.

In order to reduce our member’s exposure to the malware, I deleted the first post in this thread. I am leaving the rest of the thread up so that those who may have clicked on the link can receive the warning, besides there’s some cool car pictures in here!

If you notice your computer being sluggish or anything else suspicious, you may want to check into some anti-malware software.
