^^^^^ poor mans corvette ^^^^^ we use to have in the junk yard a few yrs ago , prob got crushed .
Forget the MG- the one I wanted as a toy car was a Saab. A Sonnet V4.
But a little Capri XR2 Turbo would also have been fun.
Are you feeling ok C3 ?
I assume everyone knows what Saab stands for ?
Stupid Ass Actually Bought it , The most fun I ever have with saabs is when I play with them with the 763 bobcat . They are wonderful scrap yrd cars , they are heavy as hell for their size . And if german jet engineers built them , remind me not to fly in those planes .
We have a very nice and clean saab here now tied up in liens but no one wants due to a electrical issue which I THINK is coming from the gps kill box the dealer installed , its killed right now but I wont even look at it till the 9k lein clears on it .
Saw a yugo the other day still going and saw a Omni not too long ago as well
still shocked when I see the early escorts , probes , berettas , z-24s running around , or maybe a mid 80s toyota / nissan hatchback / minivan looking things .
Still looking for a clean early to mid 90's 5 series BMW to come in
Id take back any of the following in a heartbeat
86.5-97 nissan hardbody with 5 spd , z-24 engine or the vg-30 MPI only , the TBI was crap as was the KA-24 engine and must be 2wd
86.5-97 nissan pathfinder 2 door only and 5spd 4wd only , either vg-30 will do
72 chevy short bed step side
early big body BMWs
early 90's toyota camery auto for everyday 5spd for fun
Mazda MX-3 which was nothing but fast looking escort but I pulled a ton tail in my early HS days with that car
Still have a soft spot for late 80-mid 90s F series ford trucks with any engine or trans combo , but prefer the inline 300
Id like to have back the old Apache dad impounded that would pull the ft end off the ground '' he ragged that one out ''
The PERFECT and flawless red C-10 such s super sweet truck .
I had some junk too , back in the day I would drag stuff out of the junk yrd , get it going and slap dealer tags on it and rock out . Most died on the once legendary power lines of the time but in doing so gave their life for EPIC stories and memories that I will always remember and tell .
The tie rod snapping Mighty Max or mighty scratch , made it from one end of Ligon Mill to the other , never stopping and never coming out of red line and 2nd gear , she lost her life to massive overheat and fire at the end
The infamous 87 reg cab sb Nissan HB with the 8 plug z-24 engine , man trans swap and pathfinder limited rear end , OMG that truck was tough . It never did stop running but got so damaged over time it was parked and crushed .
The 82 toyota with 38s and no bed or doors , lost its first motor over a rod bearing , 2nd built motor was lost over my temper with it 3rd was SBC tied to a sm465 and np205 t-case , too much power and no weight , sold it
The eddie bauer v-8 explorer that had been in a roll over , I drove this one for a while but my party days cost it to loose 3 cylinders and all oil pressure , sold it still half way running
Jeep Cherokee 2wd 4.0 welded rear end with 350k on it , what a pos but it would never die , sold it with 375k and I still see it going round town .
I have owned
5 or 6 Nissan trucks , all different body styles . traded , sold , scrapped , totaled and 1 or 2 went out with their boots on
2 pathfinders died honorably in the line fun
4or 5 Altimas and sentras donated , wrecked , killed or sold
3 explorers all sold
2 F-series killed and scrapped
volvo or two wrecked and sold
Box truck sold
2 toyota trucks SOLD thank GOD
Many many camerys sold , crushed and wrecked
mighty max umm totaled before it was totaled
4 tahoes 3 totaled and 1 still going
1 suburban sold
2 1500 gm trucks sold
56 Mercury Monterey sold
56 Chrysler New Yorker ''PARKED '' after loosing a front wheel bearing @ 140mph , scarred me too bad to ever drive again
Jeep Wrangler prepped for my 383 and sm465 2wd only , going to use it to blow the doors off dads pretty purple barracuda
I only have the tahoe , f-350 , the harley that I drive but I have a 98 Altima 5 SPEED !!!!
in the works for a daily beater , waiting on title
Countless fords , lil novas , subarus had been brought back to life just for one night of fun on the power lines , hell half of one of the taurus's is still wrapped around a tree .
2 04 dodge rams trucks
1 H1 hummer
1 particular explorer
1 of 2 Maserati's
1 07 infinity q35 '' 350z ''
Not going into details on the last ones but they are more than likely the reason for my junk back right now . When you jump a 12ft hill on a Q35 going 80 and barrel roll a 1500 goat with no seat belts , it may cause long term side effects
One of the subarus , this thing WAS tough to kill
one fo the exploder and my fav pathfinder also a case of bud light
My first Hardbody I put a 383 chevy in , traded it for the 56 new yorker
Ahh the Mighty Scratch at her final resting place
'' clears throat '' , the um Q35
Oh look , a ford sedan
The last car I ever jumped , the day after and ever since has my back been screwed
Ah and my 56 NY , taken my last day as a single man
