I think you will like some of my suggestions. The car will sound and perform a whole lot better and you can still use it to get the groceries or take it to the track.

Not sure why folks are surprised the car matches the bike..... Dont they know you are OCD and stuff just has to match?


So......hows it run?

It is admitted by all that he was much addicted to women, as well as very expensive in his intrigues with them, and that he debauched many ladies of the highest quality; among whom were Posthumia, the wife of Servius Sulpicius; and Lollia, the wife of Aulus Gabinius.

Love Moto's green car because it reminds me of the exact color and metal flake used on the Mattel HotWheels Camaro of the late 60's.

That's how old I am...

Todd, the new addition looks great!

And Jeff, with no kids my garage is loaded with crap, as is portions of my house (mainly my office and my other office - not sure why I have 2 offices seeing as I don't even work from home much at all).

My next two nights will be spent cleaning my 2 offices in preparation of the in-laws coming for Thanksgiving. I may need a relaxing spirited drive this upcoming Saturday or Sunday to unwind from hosting Thanksgiving and family from out of town.

Can a brother spare a built 2ZZ, 10 to 1 compression, Ferrea valves, Crower Maxi-Lite connecting rods, Cosworth pistons, ect...???


I was playing with a 430 Scuderia and my engine went boom. For once I have a good story.

Still sucks though, engine was stock and it lived a good hard life, it deserved to die in glory

Congrats Todd. That green is really nice. I've seen that in person and it looks even better.

I'm aiming for the same passion I had for Hot Wheels as a kid with every car I purchase.

Steve, we are both traveling down the green path right now. I can't wait to see yours!

I end up doing burnouts without even trying.

I'd say that car is parked in its native habitat!

That gold car looks very nice, but I prefer the subdued colors.

Damnit Jeff, I was gonna post that!

As for the 'Boom, Goes the Engine' - thank God I didn't join you guys on that drive. One fiddy with the Scud and 458 sounds a bit to scary in a 'I'm gonna die' or even worse 'I'm going to jail' kinda way.

You gonna compound charge it and go all Ronin on it?

I think that yellow Murci outside your office last week had the same wheels!
