I have an 1983 De Lorean.

I bought it off a guy who was stuck for cash and am now in the process of reselling it. At the time I thought I would like it more but it's not really my thing. At least I'll make a few bucks on it.

Sorry for all of the ?s. Just love turbos. The kits that Jason (Heffner) puts on the Gallardo, are bad ass!

That Lambo - SOOO sick. That would be my color too!

We went to visit one of my dad's buddy's and his collection. He has some SICK rare cars. He has a Tucker and does not consider it in his top 10 favorites.

Here are a few of my favorites. Let me know if you guys want to see more. These are not my cars, and the pics are crappy iPhone pics, but pretty cool cars. Let's see if I can remember each one: Notice the 3 convertibles have separate windscreens in the back for the passengers (almost all roads were dirt at that time.)

The tucker (obviously)
Photobucket

The Deusenberg - approx value $1.25MM


1923 Lincoln. Original cost would have been $30K


The Stutz- never seen one before:


I cannot remembr the name of this one - maybe an Austin Boat-Back? Supercharged V12. My favorite:

77 Chevy Monza Mirage in white with the red and blue stripes. No mullet here. Nice little V8 in a nice little car. I actually traded my 70 cutlass 442 in 1980 for it. What was I thinking?

Other rare car = 01 540 wagon in boring silver but I like it and it's fast!

I have a common Boxster S. See a lot more of them than 944's.

I never see any F-150's that are in better shape than mine! Ha!

A grand national huh? That is a great ride. What kind of mods are you running? How about some pics??

I used to have the GMC Syclone - 0-30 in 1.3 seconds, 0-60 in 4.3 seconds. Still the fastest car 0-30 ever. I used to go to a guy in Rancho Cucamonga that had mods for it. I picked up an air intake system, a transmission quick shifter kit, and a chip. Man, that was 15 years ago. I am getting old.
