      ^holy ****!

      also, T5R is a no-go, I got them down to 4100 while looking over the car, and then I started it up. Plenty of smoke out the tailpipe :sad: turbo needs a rebuild. Also things of note were, small scratches in paint, dents in the roof broken drivers seatbelt, and super heavy cigarette smell. Oh well, move on to the next car. Any suggestions? As you can tell, my price range tops at 4k.

      Look into Saab 9-5 Aeros or 9-3 Viggens. The Viggens may be a bit harder to find, but I found several 9-5 Aeros on the local CL that could probably be talked down to around $4k.

      If I had the cash and room for another car, I'd definitely look into this wagon

      I don't really like the look of the Saab's, considered it for a bit, but just can't get past it.

      Looked over and agreed to buy this one though:

      now that I have a different car to daily, it is likely to go. I just have way too many projects going and barely enough money for one right now.

      Okay, finally I'll post a few from my latest adventures. So I went down to Dayton in the purple car/ Top down all the way there which was excellent. Except for a big thumb down on the bridge joining method they use on the Ohio interstate. I think if the lump is under a foot high, it's acceptable. Lots of grimaces as I thunked my way over those....

      The reason for the trip is that I was invited to go to the Americal Yankee Association convention. I'm not a member, mind you, since I am sure no Yankee.



      It was held at Wright Brother's in the Dayton area...and this replica of a Wright Flyer was up and down quite a bit.



      You may recognize the convention chairs from Cincy. He was driving a vintage ragtop Kia...



      You likely know the guy flying this aircraft, our own Daun of Cincy fame.



      They had lots of contests, here's precision landing...



      And flour bombing:



      And there was an air race, here they are lined up full of adrenaline:



      The most fun was the map folding contest. They had a big fan, the person behind providing "turbulence", and the kids providing visibility probems, rain and hail. It was a good laugh. This is a team from Ottawa, and they were really friendly.



      And if you ever see this bumper sticker, here's a good case in point. Note the "Mutt Muffs".



      I have no purple on topic pictures to include, sadly, nor any of Daun's cars either. But I had such a nice drive home that I decided to drive right into the teeth of a nasty thunderstorm to take a nice evening drive along the lakeshore, top down. It was delicious. I got the car in the garage JUST as the skies opened, we had severe thunderstorms last night!

      Cool beans T$. Keep us posted (hint, pictures)...


      So I had an amusing time in the plane today, super gusty. So after that I had to go buy a few dresses....like, what's the deal with THAT?
      Purple was too tired to start (left her fogs on, doh) so I hopped into Klaus. Does that count for driving two Sciroccos today, sort of? Klaus was a bad boy as usual, luckily the nice officer had another customer and was unable to serve me when I cruised past with my halo in place.

      got this months bill from snap-on industrial today- much to my surprise and glee my my balance actually dipped below $1k for the first time. of course it was just barely below (at 999.67 or some such nonesense) then they added the interest and it was right back over, but it was there! even if for only a moment and only on paper it was there. the end is nearing!!

      then of course i will continue buying tools, but eliminating this payment would be quite nice.

      might have a 77 mazerati in the works pretty soon.

      Parked ten years ago,

      ran when parked,

      hates his ex-wife,

      $200!

      we'll see, could be a pipe dream, apparently other people have seen it and have said the body's very clean, interior is dust....

      rat rod mazerati, honda smasher? sounds like fun to me!

      also somebody should come here and buy this so I stop thinking about it..

      You'll need wheels though...

      lancia beta,
      really good shape body,
      Interior looks good,
      not sure if it runs or not..
      It came from the same guy that ditched my 80 rocco there.
      A sloth gets robbed by three turtles. The sloth calls the cops and they ask him "so can you tell us about the robbery?" and the sloth say's "I'm not sure.............It all happened so fast......."
