Some of these cars I have to do a search on because I have no idea what they look like. Datsun B210- beauty is in the eye of the beholder for sure.

The B210 sedans were butt ugly. The hatchback looked cool.

I think I grow too attached to cars. I've never sold one, but only bought three... In order:

'74 914 2.0 (now a 3.6 /6)
'63 356 B Coupe
'01 Audi allroad 2.7T

Now that the 914 is basically done (wrapping up the interior), I think my next car/project is going to be a 21/23-window bus, based on a 993TT - AWD, ABS, 400 HP... ? It'll replace the Audi when I'm done with it... in probably another 5 years or so.

OK, taking deep breath...

1970 Chevelle - first car, 15 yrs old, painted it and put headers on it- thought I was cool doing one-wheelers in the HS parking lot
1972 Blazer
1976 Grand Am - 400ci, oof
1978 malibu beater
1978 Firebird formula
1977 GMC Sprint - 350, 6 inch lift, 4wd, ugliest thing ever on the road
1980 Z28 beater yeehaw
1980 Trans-Am - nicest car, built my first real RAIII motor, sold it to buy house
1980 Chevy PU
1978 Bronco
1979 Blazer
1984 Blazer
1993 Chevy PU
1991 Chevy PU
1987 RAM
1986 Ram
1973 914 1.7 - most favorite of all, should've done it long ago (maybe I appreciate it more now though?)

OK Toasty and MX Mark I'll try to do this in order.....

Artic Cat minibike
Rupp SwifterShifter I shoulda kept 'cause now it's a collector deal
1975 Suzuki TM100 don't ever buy any model TM (if you can find one hide)
1977 Suzuki RM100
1981 Suzuki RM 125
1984 Honda CR250
1996 Suzuki RM250 (God that bike was faaast - unbelievable holeshots)
1999 Yamaha YZ250
2003 Yamaha YZ250F currently - I'll never own another two-smoke

Quads....
1992 Honda 250X
1987 Honda 250X - nickle plated frame, 400EX front end
1987 Honda 250R three wheeler, for like 2 weeks
1986 Honda TRX250R
1989 Suzuki Quadracer 500 - Quadzilla, too big for a little guy like me to pull out of the weeds when blowing corners
1987 Kawasaki Tecate 250 for another 2 weeks
2000 Honda 400EX - currently
I like the current crop of KTMs - I've ridden a 400SX and a 380MXC (corners come up REAL fast on those), but they're waaaay too tall, and I'm still faster on my 250F. Go Yamaha!
Geez, we all need to get together and ride somehow......

Toast do you have any dirt bikes?

My only enduro was the Husqvarva TC610 it had a light. Anaheim should be interesting without Ricky Carmicheal. The whole season should be interesting. Carmicheal was going to ride a 4 stroke that you like.

Here is my list....

78 GTI (yep, grey market. Dad brought it back with his new 85 Audi) - wrecked in a street solo in 1990. I miss that car!
85 GTI. Had a techtonics 2020 and hordes of Koni suspension work. put 175k on that sucker, great car - sold
81 Scirocco S - SCCA IT car - sold
72 914 - still got it, the Martini car
87 GLI - went away with the ex
92 Isuzu Rodeo - gone
94 GMC Sierra Z-71 - gone
89 Saab turbo convertable - still got it
66 Shelby GT350 - sold
72 XJ 12 - sold
66 MGB - traded for the XJ12 (concours level MGB)
52 MGTD - still got it
55 MGTF - still got it
66 Healy 3000 BJ8 - still got it
60 Morris Minor pick up - still got it
72 911 - traded to a dirtbag on the pelican 911/944 list for a misrepresented 944S - legal action pending.
89 944S - had a paperwieght for a motor - sold
03 GMC sierra Z-71 - daily driver

The neighbor who bought the GT350 is selling his Pantera. I need to see what housing re-fi rates are at and perhaps have a chat with him. It's sort of like a 914 with a v8 conversion... right?

What happened to Ricky? Why wont he be in this season? Stewart is my guy anyway! (in the 125's) Ricky is my fav for the 250's, but there are about 4 other riders in the 250's that I like to watch.

Enduro? Ya know, it's never even come up! I've always had a quad for night riding and winter bombing, and a MXer has always served nicely for trails. Now, has anyone ever studded up their tires and blasted around a frozen lake? I just picked up a spare set of tires for the quad, and I can't wait for the bay to freeze over. Full power slides, wide open, wooo! That's the only thing I'd do in the winter, other than that I hate the snow......
Yeah, what's the scoop with #4? I haven't been following supercross too much lately, so I'm outta the loop. Geeze, Ricky C. and Bubba - these guys are incredible. You gotta watch them in person to get an idea of how superhuman they are. Makes me wanna bury my bike in the back yard and take up frickin' stamp collecting.
HEY does anyone have any thoughts on a '92 Saab 9000 Turbo? I was looking at one over the weekend, with thoughts of adding that to my list. Better judgement tells me to save my money, but it's a 5 speed, black, and has a sunroof. Really sharp car, but I dunno.......

Actually, No, I have Not blasted around a frozen lake. It doesn't get below 50 degrees at night here in the "Winter". Tee Hee.....no snow for me!!

Toast ,

Ricky tore his ACL practicing on a 4-stroke at the practice, He should be back by the Nationals. He should be out for 4-months. Chad Reed is hurt also but should return by Anaheim.

It would be cool to take an area to park all of our Porsches at the supercross.

Supercross and Porsche can life get any better.
