You might think I'm crazy but I'm a fan of the early NSX.

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?

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:
1970 Datsun 240Z

And in terms of American Cars...
1960 T-Bird Convertible, but in black
1965 Mustang Fastback, but in blue


Dino, AM's are always 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.

Ford Escort RS/Mk.2
