Nova T33 aka the green machine owned by Lauren aka Spacenut. Under the skin there's nothing left of the original kit car and powered by an Alfa boxer engine.

I had a '75 that had gotten a frame off restoration... it was a beautiful truck but it only got 15mpg with the gas engine and the F22 tranny package and 4 speed (complete with PTO's) limited it's top speed.

But it would pull stumps out of the ground and had an 8000 pound winch.

My mechanic is checking out my potential Jeep tomorrow to make sure everything is skippy.

The CHP used to have a few 850's in the 1990s. So, so odd to see a Volvo in black and white.

And you wear panties? umm uhhh... n/m

When I was a kid I was in love with the 1988 Pontiac Banshee concept car. While many design elements made it into later Firebird models, I wanted so badly for them to make this exact car.
