I went to the configurator and it seems I could get a P.50 kit in custom livery and no engine (it takes the common Chinese knockoff of the Honda horizontal engine) for about $11,200. (Ouch!) It seems they will arrange worldwide delivery. It has 3 wheels so it could be US legal as a motorcycle.
Ford Stallion. $13500. MSRP on these was about $34K. I see the gear shift on the console, but the driver/rider straddles the center console it seems. Are you forced to use the accelerator on the right and the brake on the left? Besides the incredible awfulness this whole platform projects, that is an incredible…
If you purchase a Barber Motorsports Museum license plate in Alabama, they have 2 days each year when you can gain free admission to the museum and participate in some parade laps on the track. My first time doing this. Warning: May be boring. Sorry for the wind noise on the dash cam.
Last year I discovered that Hot Wheels had a 50th Anniversary collection of Camaros, and managed to get a full set of them. Today I found a new 10 car set. What can I say? I have to collect them all!
Update: I bought it. Have to get it home now. Ebay auction, I paid more than I really thought it should have gone for, but I think I can get the money out of it if I wanted...just not to Carmax.
I was eating lunch just a little while ago and noticed two guys “securing” a load to a trailer outside the fast food joint I was at. Whatever they had done previously must not have been good enough as they pulled in and proceeded to do this. I was wondering what was going on as the younger guy rolled the windows down…
Spotted 2 days ago. I found it rather odd that anyone would be hauling 3 dilapidated news trucks. It was even more strange that one of the trucks seems to be from a fake TV station. I could find no reference to KPDL Channel 8. Definitely something up here.
Last month the “family car” got wrecked. I need to replace it and I’m darned tired of family cars. (2006 Lexus RX400h). The Lexus was rock hard dependable. It had 171K when it was totaled and was still going strong. Now I want something with a bit more umph to it, that can still do family duty, like driving on…
I’m about 98% sure of the answer, but you hear that misery loves company and all that rot, so I felt compelled to share via a question.
Do they change the registration on UK vehicles? Wonder if it is this one?
So I was watching a Swedish flick on Amazon (A Man Called Ove). The titular character is a SAAB lover, which is slightly germaine to the post. Anyway, I loved his line when confronted by an asshole in an Audi.
I was doing a Google search today and completely by accident, I ran across a gallery of photos dating as far back as 1972. I’m loving looking at these. It’s so rare to find photos of old cars contemporary to their times (at least for me). Have a look and enjoy too.
I was picking up a package at the UPS store yesterday and this was in the lot. As I was walking in, I saw a man in scrubs walking towards the car. Of course, I figured that this was the owner (scrubs = MD). Oddly, he went right up to the door, stopped and whipped out his phone and took a photo of the inside of the…
I found these pictures of a Conquest TSI from an estate sale going on this weekend. I know NOTHING about these, but figured I’d toss it out there. What do you think it’s worth as it is? It looks like its been sitting for some time. Go look at it or run away?
Found on a Listerine commercial. I thought they were Cortinas but they don’t quite match. AMC? Those “3-lug” wheen covers are odd enough for it to be them..
I’ve seen this car (on the left) twice in the area. I saw it coming up from behind and at first thought it was a Scion tC, but it isn’t. The badge threw me. Its a roundel with a capital “T” with a downward arrow point.
October 21, 2015 now exists only in our memories. But if you managed to get in on the sweet Statler Toyota swag giveaway, it can live on the ass end of your car for a few years at least.
I was looking for something else when I ran across this today, from a 1968 issue of Life Magazine. I remember reading that Ford brought in some Cortinas, but I never saw one in real life, and was surprised to find an ad for one.
I’ve been going through my old photos this week and ran across these from my early days of digital camera ownership. While this was already several years after the Highway 17 Page of Shame had ceased to be updated, I figured that I would take pictures on my commute with my Kodak DC4800 digital camera and post them…
All these years I’ve never given a second thought to the amount of taxes I pay on my vehicles. I’ve always just looked at the assessed value on my registration document and seen that it is considerably less than the “real” value and figured I’m getting bargain. That is until I paid attention to a little card that my…
