  • I would guess that even in the old eastern bloc Yugos are pretty much extinct. By the way Joe,is that your GTI?

    No, I wish, I had one (actually an 84 GTI motor in a 1100lb rabbit shell - nothing but two seats and set for the track) and it would smoke Vette's, Mustangs and the like. I was young and dumb and didn't take care of it, blew a head gasket. But it would pull so hard that you swear it was on an aircraft carrier deck. Amazing cars. I could pick up the back end by myself it was so light.

    Too bad they are hard to find now unmolested. $30K and up too.
  • This was my first " Brand New" car. 1987 Shelby Charger Turbo. Got a few speeding tickets in that car! The pic is from the inter webs. Mine was just like the pic.

    The Cords were rather famous FWD vehicles.
    F = FRONT I presume.
    as opposed to 4WD or AWD, that is.

    The earlier Cord L29 was also FWD, but I like the "coffin nose" Cord 810 better personally.

    Not ours, but ours was very similar... a hand-me-down in two-tone silver with bordello red interior. We finally gave up on it the second time the starter fell off of it. :|

    Pics of modded 2011 MINI JCW I used to own. Fun car to drive and it handled very well as it had numerous suspension mods. It would top out about 148 mph.

    I had a lesser Integra GSi. I never drove a Type R, but can only imagine, as the GSi's handling was amazing.

    I have had a few FWD drive cars. All of them built in the good, old US of A. B)

    Yep.

    Mrs. H's dad had one of the original Olds Toronados ('66 or 67), now that you mention it. Long before I knew her/them... but what cool cars those were. The Eldorados were also cool -- but I loved (and still do) the aesthetics of the original Toronado body style.
    My brother has 2 of those 60s Toronados, a 1973 El Dorado convertible, a 1976 El Dorado hardtop, and a 1969 Buick Riviera absolutely identical (color, trim, wheels, everything) to the one seen in "Harold and Maude". :p

    49f8js9q5cp9.jpg 1986/7 Buick Regal with Buick 307 motor. Presidential Model. Dodge D150 I think. It had a slant 6 in it & I bought a Dodge Diplomat & took the 318 & tranny out & put it in that Dodge shortbed with a floor automatic shifter in it. That's my little Rebecca somewhere around 1997/8 era. Those were our summer vehicles. Wife drove a Toyota Celica gt & I drove my F350 7.5L with 9ft plow blade in winter. Rebecca n dad getting ready to go to BoothBay Harbor. Stoney Lobster Run. The belt was for her to hold on to. Rebecca all grown up now.
