  1. Any body watching Barrett-Jackson ?

    My customer MS Classic cars has a few up tonight. I rode in a few and they are nice but prices are NUTS,.
  2. Sacrilege or really cool? Hmmmmm...

    OK, this thread is blossoming a bit. My own take on Porsche sound is like this. I've driven 930 Turbo cars. I've worked on more than a few mid 70's cars [My background and training is all Euro]. And having driven Ferrari, Porsche, big and small block Ford, Chrysler and Chevy, and I for one am not enamored with Porsche sound. You can train the American to work on Euro but you cannot take the American out of that wrench. I actually like the pulse of a Subaru flat four as much as anything that came out of Stuttgart. The only Porsche that ever got me revved was a whale tail mid 80's Turbo that I tuned back in 91. THAT car was a beast and it came on so brutally and the tone was all business to my ears. But it stopped as good as it went so I was OK with what that car offered. But my ears love small and big block Chevrolet, and now LS architecture. That is the sound I love and may one day lament. Although I suspect that sound will still be throbbing long after I've left this plane.

    I guess one or two converted wouldn't be such a bad thing. I'd like to take it for a spin.
  4. Detail Master this is cool !

    Not certain I've yet to see who is selling them. Time to look I spose.
  5. Detail Master this is cool !

  6. ****Mecum auction****

    My customer MS Classic Cars is heading out to Jackson tomorrow. They came in and got some emergency gear for the ride. They are bringing 10 cars and a couple I got to take a spin in. The manual 69 Camaro and the gold 67 GTO are standouts. They have been going for 3 years now and they sell out every time. Of course they bring really nice stuff.
  7. Detail Master this is cool !

    How many shifter handles come in the kit?
  8. Last build for 2017 - "Agents of SHIELD" Hell Charger

  9. Meng Sherman Tank

    I built one of these a while back. Wild paint on yours..... The cutest thing ever...
  10. An open invitation

    I think I was signed up a long time ago. Time to revisit.
  11. Auntie Freak Boutique

    Nice touch on the roof. Don't want to bang your head. Unless you're into that sort of thing.
  12. What did you get today?

    That Gal in the one piece. Talk about accessories! WooHoo!
  13. Help ID old family cars

    When cars were made of metal it seems. Notice how the 25# young lady is not even denting the fender.
  14. Glad I didn't have to learn that way Pete. That is a tasty tidbit there Joe. Time to SHRED. Oh wait...what Pete said. Even though my fronts are a tad low pro they were up to it yesterday morning. About 1/2 way to work and I turned tail. The store closed at 10:00 and now I'm looking at my driveway and it's a frozen mess. I threw out ice melt last night [Actually 3 AM this morn]. Good thing I did.
  15. Yessir, studded tires. The are no longer legal in Mass I believe. Typical Dem state.
