Here are some pics of my 64 Chev C-10 that I have had for 20 yrs and built from the ground up. Didnt lay the paint but picked the colours. Everybody looked at me like i was nuts when I said that was the colour i was painting it. Gets a lot of looks and is definitely alot of fun to drive.
My car (blue) and my friends. I wont even say what it is, everyone should know... Or not. Shame in terms of the 'super street Japanese cars' of the 90s, the 300zx has sort of faded (insert usual turbo lag joke here). Can find nice TT's with approx 100k on them for around 5,000. Doing that for a 3000GT VR4, Supra, RX7 and such would just be nonsense. Yet in my opinion the 300zx has one of the most beautiful designs. The headlights and lines just flow. Crazy it was released in 89, years before the other competitors even thought of designing a car like it.
(if you cant watch short story - Z is faster than them all... Though I don't believe it has that big of an advantage as they say.)
Right now I'm about to finished with school and getting a 'real' job so I think the ZX might be time to leave. Bought it, it had 50K on the engine, got it for 8k. Right now has about 200K on it. Never had a major problem. Shame to see it go, but I think time is rearing its ugly head.
Been looking at an 850R thats for sale around here. But I HATE 4 doors. I'm weird, i need 2 doors, haha. I looked at a C70, but just too bland. Whats with cars these days... Haha. Probably be test driving a Genesis Coupe an the coming weeks though just to get a feel.
Oh and my dream car -
"Cheap" and god damn amazing. Not the usual Testarossa, oh no. The TR 512M.
Never been a car guy, prefer pick up trucks and Harley's......Been riding Harley's for 30+ years, i am pretty sure i have more miles on a Motorcycle than a car in my 53 years of living.....If i did want a car, i guess i would probably want an old fast back Mustang or a 69 Chevelle SS.......Always liked the looks of those 2 cars...
I spent two years in AZ before deciding to buy a car. This is what I bought: 1974 Dodge Dart SE. Waiting on a windshield (any day now!) and then she is good to go.
There was a virtual twin to this not 4 miles from where I am right now. I tried to buy it for a parts car for a 69 I was looking at but alas he wouldn't go for it. It ended up getting crushed a few years later. I didn't end up with the 69 either. My project car ended up being a 79 RoadRunner. It was the last year they made them actually. I loved that car. It was well past the musclecar era but it was all I could afford I'm glad a had it. I learned a lot on it. For the record, by 79 the runner was just a stickeredup, ground effected, 8 tracked and t topped 360 Volare.
It's a goal of mine to get a motorcycle at some point in the future. Hopefully it won't take me too long to pick one up.
Getcha a Harley and don't look back LOL....May as well make a Harley your 1st bike, because before long you will end up with one any way ? Don't buy into all the Harley bashing, they make fine reliable bikes.I have ridden my 2008 Superglide from Florida to South Jersey and back 7 times over the last couple years with zero issues...The bike has been very reliable, as have other Harleys i have owned through the decades....Good luck in your endeavor !
You're probably right, if I get into it I'll likely end up on one or something similar eventually. I'm probably going to start simple, though, to gain experience.
You can find a ton of really great deals on Harley Sportsters......Either the 883 or 1200 models....They are VERY reliable bikes,handle good, and are a blast to run around on...I have seen Sportster's with low miles on them for 3500 bucks etc.....
