    The 3.0 CSi has long been my favorite car.
    Danno, does that one have a dimpled key and a huge steering wheel?

    Nope, the key & steering-column switch were replaced sometime before I it. I like to take my cars out to the track and wring them out. So I'll upgrade parts where it makes a performance difference, such as a Momo steering-wheel. Thinking about adding a turbo and sequential transaxle too...

    They're for fun! Giving you the thrill and exhilaration of driving! I'm not gonna have some pampered garage queen! And so what if I drive it like the way BMW intended and wreck it? That'll just raise the value of the remaining cars for everyone else! It's a win-win scenario!!! Actually those are my brother's, I'm more a Porsche & Ferrari guy.

    Yep, gonna rip it out and go with MoTeC or Electromotive. Pretty much required for turbo upgrades.

    You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
    You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

    I regularly see two all electric cars here, both about kei car size. One is a van/suv and the other a truck with those fold-down bed sides like a Unimog.

    I might be bias because its mine but I finally got my 70 LeMans back on the road after 10+ years. The used motor I bought has a LOT more power then I had guessed. I'm thinking near 400hp at the crank. Need to hit the local dyno but I have a mile wide grin on my face every time I get to drive it.

    Its No Judge but I like the lines.

    The Blastolene Brothers were showing their Decoliner in Portland a couple weeks ago. Very pretty, and the dual driving positions just puts the hink in my kink. Maybe someday when I'm rich and famous (or just rich) I'll get one like this:

    Jay Leno has a writeup on that on his website. I think it's still on the first page.

    My new ride. I love the car. Getting a lot of compliments on the style. Great car. 40+ mpg most of the time, even when you hammer it (to the degree you can hammer a car with net HP of 134). Hey, that's 3x the HP of the VW bugs I learned to drive on in the mid 1970's.

    Funny, a friend of mine just sold a '58 Corvette. He's retired, but he figured he wouldn't have time to restore it properly. He's going to spend the next few summers riding the different Adventure Cycling routes across the U.S.

    I almost bought one of these a couple years ago. I've always wanted a pre '79 Lola Coupe. I just couldn't get the price I wanted, or even close.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    My first car was a 79' Triumph spitfire, and while it was cute and all those fun things it ran maybe 40% of the time and I ended up having to get rid of it (I wish I had just stored it in my Dad's garage!) so I'm pretty partial to them... fun little car, when it worked.

    This is exactly what mine looked like...




    However, the car that I will have someday whether I buy it mint or work on it is the Triumph TR-3A, I just think it's so beautiful.
