I use my speedster every day as it's my only car! My wife has a practical car but that's no fun... Anyway, I don't want to get used to anything too luxurious!


Hardtop nearly finished ot make winter driving a bit nicer...

I jus got a addition to my "fleet" yesterday. It's a 2000 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-7R. I know it ain't keepn with my VW image but I needed another car since I'm putting the 1302 into storage, and the 914 isn't what I would classify as "trouble free", on top of loosing my place to wrench on my rides, as well as the rising costs of gas, so a bike seemed like the obvious next step. I'll try to post some current 914, and zx-7 pics when i get a chance to take sum. I would post some 1302 pics but it's really under construction right now and I'd rather surprise you'all.

Guess I'd better update my "other car"...

It's a 2000 New Beetle 1.8T Auto

The 912 just got sold and is going to live in Switzerland.

Dad bought a 1985 911 Factory Turbo Look (M491)

The Explorer is doing fine.

To get in and out of NYC, I still rely on public transportation. It's so much easier than dealing with parking in Manhattan.

My 71 sunroof Deluxe Baywindow is my only 'car'
It's great for taking the kids to school, for the wife to go shopping but most of all it's just so damn cool

Supa Ninja come on how can you guys complain about the price of Gas/Petrol, here in the UK we pay about 75% tax.
At the moment we have to pay £0:80 = $1:45 a litre

Hi

Well I took a down payment on my 1302, I going to start on my new 1303 soon. I have a 2000 Holden (aussie GM made in Japan) Rodeo ute for work and the wife has a 2002 Toyota Prado (80 series) Grande 4WD, great for towing.

The new 1303, dosent look much, ex sports sedan, hasnt been used since 1985, the Prado is at the front. I musnt like the Prado much, thats about the only picture I have of it.

Steve C, I remember Holdens from my visits to the land down under, very cool cars.
I'm going to try and post this pic of my Ninja, but I have a hell of a time every time I try. Boygenius is probally going to be interested in this. I finally got the bike on a dyno and it's making 106.5 whp/52.6 Ft lbs it ain't no Huyabusa but it goes good.

My Holden is not cool, its a work truck. Holden are the people who make the new GTO.

My other car besides my "in progress" 1303 is a 1987 Audi 4000 Quattro (alpine white paint, black Quattro script interior).
It snows a lot here so i had to have a great snow car... and man this sure is a kick *** snow car...80 in the snow is no problem with the right tires (did 90 once durring a long strait section) sure is crazy sounding, but everything felt super solid.... but i still have not tried to TURN at those speeds and dont think i will
