We used to vacation on the Pend Oreille river in northeast WA. The NAVY flew E6 missions along the river between the hills . Was sitting on the cabin deck one morning as a pair went by at eye level (about 100ft above the river).
They do look nice, but so did the Buell lineup when H-D had them. That didn’t work out so well though... I still miss the idea of the single cyl thumper Buell Blast.
That’s really sad. Was hoping he would bring it to the Boise Rally next month... 😢
Seeing a notchback Supra makes me thing of the old Mustang SSP models used by highway patrol back in the day for some reason...
That pretty much describes Group B Rally. It didn’t work so well when teams did thinknlike mount thin metal fuel tanks underneath the passenger seat on a car that might hurtle off a cliff at any tim on the name of weight savings and lower center of gravity.
Correct. Basically a Turbo II sans the adjustable suspension. Can’t remember if the Turbo II had the same seats and lightweight hood.
Every car enthusiast should get a chance to drive an RX-7. Nothing else quite has that same power delivery.
No mention of the classic Volvo system?
The head rest in my old 77 Volvo 240 came in handy when I got rear ended... twice. Nice and soft and that iconic shape.
Posters are nice which their “fancy” 12V electrics, but they don’t have the dual range transmission. I love that low range.
Well shoot, I don’t fee so bad about the 13-ish mpg I usually see. Then against n, this has the 400 sbc whereas the 90s vans tended to have 305s or 5.0L V8 that didn’t make me as as much torque.
My old Trail110 should run on propane and you could probably do wood gasification with a little work.
This one has a factory 33 gallon tank. At 13-15mpg Highway, it’ll get you a ways.
1979 GMC Conversion Van.
Not a comeback without a Trail variant. I’ve spent many hours up in the mountains with my 1984 Trail 110, usually loaded down with camera gear.
It more of a fiberglass cover with about 1/2” of foil lined insulation... lol
Not yet. The are correct bolt pattern Speedlines. For the price I paid, I couldn’t even get the generic multi-bolt pattern rims everyone sells. Plus these are actually pretty light.
Same here in Idaho. $4 fee for mailing tags. It’s another $4 or $5 to register online, but worth it to not have to stand in line.
I can confirm this. Went from a 2001 Toyota ECHO to a 2006 Scion xA and the quality level difference was readily apparent.
