This car belonged to Herb Chambers, who commutes by helicopter from CT to MA. Owns a large number of high end car dealerships, self-made man. Estimated net worth $1.2B. Mid-70s.
not enough 7.3 Power Stroke swapped ex-Police Interceptor Panther Wagons, bruh.
“That sounds like a lot, but it also sounds like 200 mph, a three-seat cockpit and a gold-shielded engine, so who’s really counting?”
Because if you can spend that much, you probably already own most of those.
The B+W doesn’t quite do the orange paint justice. But good show, tro.
I’ve got the old 7300 rules somewhere from back when it was a class with more than one truck in it. It died somewhere around 2012/2013 due to lack of competition. My truck was built for that class
My uncle raced Baja Bugs in the 1000 back in the 70s. Many of his old teammates are getting together to celebrate the 50th and run an old Bug again. I can’t wait to hear the stories of guys past retirement age doing it all over again.
I goaded them a little on Twitter, perhaps that will pan out. LOL.
Oh man seeing a rack of round lights up top is so satisfying
Mm. I think yeah. Good question, though.
So... when it comes to nearly-unattainable overpriced piles of unreliability for prestigious overlanding, the real question is would you rather have the G or a Defender?
The best upgrade you can do to any car is upgrade the nut behind the wheel. You don’t have to do a 2 day like this one to get your feet wet. See if NASA is running a HPDE in your area.

I have one of the 3511 2003 CL Type S with the 6 speed and it’s no slouch, it blends in with many new cars today in stock form but is faster than most seem to think, it confers pretty well for a long coupe and torque steer isn’t that bad with decent tires being a fwd v6
I actually had a 1998 Prelude SH. I will say, after all the cars I have owned, this was definitely one of my favorites. I still miss that car:
Shootingbrake!.....Domo Arigato AM Zagato
Yep, my question was more just geeky, how this is done in video editing. Apparently there are tools called step freeze, posterize, strobe motion, etc.
Gotchya, good points. Things were similar with my TJ...dedicate a Saturday or two per month..outsource the intense work!
I personally think this would get you in the headspace of “it’s never going to happen” too easily. Like when you go to organize your bookshelf, and take everything off, and realize “OH GOD WHAT HAVE I DONE?!”
If I ever came back as a bear... (‘cause reincarnation is real Leigh! No, you shut up!) Where was I? Oh, right... bear.
