There's a red '94 NSX for sale locally.

You have NO idea how much I want to jump on it and get it for myself.

If I ever find one it's coming home with me, I don't care how much I pay.:D

How much do they want for it?

BarracksSi 06-30-08 06:33 PM

I haven't asked. I'm afraid to ask. I really shouldn't take on another debt, and I may yet have a significant bonus coming from work this fiscal year (rhymes with "reenlistment" ;) ).

Gotta give the LeBaron some points for getting the United States back into convertibles.

Also, it's always fun to see such cars in excellent condition. Knowing what poorly-built pieces of junk such cars tended to be, one in nice condition has to be a labor of love. It's someone putting a lot of effort into taking good care of something completely un-special, in a day and age when even nice things are treated like disposable junk.

Now this is a classic:

Sometimes it's more about memories than absolute beauty, although in this case they are memories of other people's cars.

When I was a kid my best friend's dad had a Shelby GT350. I can't remember if it was a '65 or '66. I thought it was totally bad-ass. It was stolen and parted out!

After his dad died, when he was 15 years old his mom bought him a gold '78 Trans Am. I turned 16 and got my license months before he did, so I got to drive his car. :D That was super fun, we used to cruise around blasting the album "Highway to Hell" on the stereo. It was the first car I lost control of, when I stomped on the gas coming around a corner. (And no, neither of us had mullets :p).

I thought the dashboard looked like it was covered in shiny stickers you would get out of a box of ******* Jacks. :lol:

A few years later my friend's mom re-married and the couple bought two '68 California Special Mustangs.

Then there was a girlfriend I had in high school. Her dad had a sweet '56 Corvette. She said that she got to drive it a couple of times, but in the time we were together we never got to take it out.

Yes. I'll take a 240z (even better if it's marked as "Fairlady Z") and a 2000GT, please.

Gotta give it to the commoners, as well:

They're all different models.... yeah, go genius designers at Aston Martin. :rolleyes:

x136 07-01-08 12:09 AM

Yay, old Volvos!

Too bad the new ones are so bland. What do Volvo and Aston Martin have in common? Ford.

Love the Super 7 and Datsun 180~240 Z fairladys.

Sil80 S13 has some nice lines that the newer incarnations just don't have.

speaking of light weight cars...

Delta HF Integrale is also very nice.
