I left her in the WestCoast. I had lost a muscle car (71 Duster) to salt when younger, and this one is staying dry until i move out of the area. cant figure out how to upload a larger image.

Yeah, lots of threads get buried pretty quickly in Off-Topic.

Thank You! That Challenger is pretty sweet too. By far the best looking of the retro muscle cars. Love the color combo.[/QUOTE]

Thanks much! It's a treat to drive!

Sadly.. I sold this one.. Crated it up and shipped it to her new owner in Paris France of all places.. I bought it not running, with a smoked trans.. grabbed it off of ebay in Joliet Illinois.. Popped it together.. and had a blast for two years.. then sold it for twice what i was into it for.. but wish i still had it just the same..

This one's current.. 2000 Fatboy, 'Baggertail' Radical 95" by R&R.. Barrel of Monkeys type fun!

Bought, repowered and refurbished this boat when I sold the panhead (old red Harley)..


Currently, restoring this Shitbox.. but it's going slowly.. and have back burnerized this in favor for a boat restore for my old man..

Here's mine. Engine by choice, Dodge by force [thinking].. 12 Valve Cummins. Straight-piped. 4" off turbo, 5" y-pipe, 6" stacks. Sorry to the Prius owners, It's all in good fun.........unless there's a Warren or Obama sticker on it.

This thing is going to be the death of me some day..
Haha, those things are dangerous. I had one a while back, it was a wheelie machine and sometimes the throttle would stick. I crashed that damn thing more times than I care to mention.

You aren't kidding about it being a wheelie machine! 7HP doesnt sound like much but on that little thing, with a 75t sprocket out back, it's tough to keep the front end down even with my 200lbs on it!

Mine had a Briggs & Stratton 8hp and I only weigh 140lbs. The guy I bought it off was selling because everyone that rode it crashed because the front end wouldn't stay on the ground.

He warned me 10-15 times before I took it for a test ride, I made it 20ft before I flipped the damn thing. I got up, started laughing and said, I'll take it!
