    My Rides through the years:

    This is what I was able to get my grubby little paws on since hitting 16 years old
    1968 Mercury Station Wagon 390 ci. (Can you say tank?)
    1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 428CJ w/ shaker hood scoop (Still Own)
    1970 Mercury Cougar
    1975 Chevy Nova (A bartered trade due to someone owing me money)
    1975 Mercury Monarch
    1978 Buick Estate Wagon ...My mobile Bed
    1979 Mercedes 450SL (AMG Mods) Would steal it from my dad when he fell asleep or was on long vacation trips.
    1979 Toyota Celica GT (Can you believe it is still in the family? It won't die!!)
    1983 Nissan Maxima (Flipped it 3 times as a result of looking for something that fell on the floor)...brings to mind a "Doors" song.
    1984 Nissan 200SX Turbo
    1984 Toyota Mini van
    1985 or 1986 Subaru Turbo XT coupe AWD (The frickin air suspension would go bonkers and sometimes you were driving as if you had no shocks...ouch!!)
    1985 Honda Civic Hatchback (Tough quarter panel according to a semi trucks lug nuts)
    1985 Honda Night Hawk "S"
    1986 Honda Interceptor (Nearly spread all my blood on the streets of Chicago)

    2000 Honda Odyssey EX Mini Van (4x8 sheets of plywood fit in it!! Woohoo!!)(Still Own)
    2000 VW GTI 1.8 T (Still Own)
    2003 WR Blue Subaru WRX Sedan........Impatiently Waiting for the Stork to bring this baby in.
    ....also considering trading my Honda CR-V for a 2003 Acura MDX or 2003 Honda Pilot but I promised myself to never spend 25,000 + on any vehicle, so far I've managed to do just that.

    .......BTW I have no Rugrats and when I do the fun will stop

    Was that repainted? It looks beautiful. Mine was a bit faded. The bumpers looked like they were fresh off of Barbie's car! I tried Meguiar's 3-step, but it brought out the primer...the paint was too far gone.

    VV - Beautiful Conquest/Starion and your other rides as well!

    XRW URABUS - WHOA. Now that's a true automotive menagerie! :-)

    Here's my not-so-short, and only semi-sweet list (in chronological order) :-)

    '84 Isuzu Impulse (I had to learn on something - right?) :-) - ?
    '89 Mustang 5.0/AOD - 15.90's :-(
    '71 Mustang Notchback/C6/9" - 11.68 @ 117
    '90 Eagle Talon TSi AWD - 13.70 @ ?
    '94 Camaro Z28/A4 - 14.51 @ ?
    '95 Chevy S10 Ext. Cab - ?
    '93 Suzuki Katana 600 - ? (<-- SLOW)
    '93 Honda CBR600F2 - ? (<-- What am I Crazy? :-)
    '94 Mustang GT/Powerdyne/Tremec/8.8" - 11.96 @ 114.58
    '01 Lexus IS300 - 15.90's (As fast as my 5.0! :-)
    '02 Subaru WRX - 14.80's (Grrr - damn this Hawaii humidity! :-)

    That's it... Kaput... I can't afford another car. Errrr - until I hit that jackpot and fill my garage with all sorts of Euro trash and V10 muscle. And maybe buy VV's red plastic fantastic while I'm at it. :-)

    Aloha,
    Richard...

    Isn't black beautiful when it's freshly waxed? What a pain in the rain though! :-)

    Doesn't look like 430RWHP with A/C, Power Steering, and Daily Driver manners does it? Hmmm... 14mpg on a good day though. :-)

    It sure isn't pretty - but I was always more worried about "go" than "show".

    This is what I bought when I worked for the dealership and thought I wanted "refinement" (pre mid-life crisis crisis? :-)

    Sold it <2 years later for something with alittle more sizzle (the WRX). :-)

    What I used to be doing every weekend. :-) I don't know if you can see it in this cruddy scanned pic - but there's green light shining from under that left front tire as it hangs in the air a bit. Now THAT was fun. :-) The timeslip and the picture aren't from the same run...

    Wow - it's amazing how much better a digicam comes out than my HP scanner. These are 10 year old pictures and a low-$ scanner... But you get the idea. There were LITERALLY 15+ coats of acrylic red lacquer on this baby. Polishing this car was almost SEXUAL.

    Don't even get me going about starting the motor... 351C-4v + .030", 12.75:1 (!!) compression, .590" lift / 254 @ .050" lift solid cam, 850cfm Holley DP on an Edelbrock Torker, C6 w/10" 3200rpm stall, 9" with 4.56 gears and a 31-spline Detroit Locker. Oh and believe it or not - this was back in the day when "Supertrapps" were en vogue so this thing made a very unique noise. :-)
