ok Mike since you love the early Falcons. I did the stripping, bodywork and paint for my Father in 1980. At the time, I had NO air tools, except a spray gun. All elbow grease.
This is a recent pic. My kids are already fighting over it. :wink:

A lot of random junk at the moment!

I got the Yamaha (77 DT100) on the road this summer and it has been quite a blast to cruise around town! Nothing like an old 2 stroke to turn some heads...

Hey Jared that's great you got the Yamahaha back on the road!

I spent many hours through the woods on a one-lung CT175 Enduro circa 1973-74.

Yeup, nothing quite like that chain saw sound, throttle up as ya head up a hill.

Unz: yes. That would be a fair swap I think.

I like the lattice work tonneau cover. It breaths better than the particle board one I have.

Datsuns - 72 240Z, 71 510, 70 SRL, 70 SPL - packed in
This is a older pic...just sold the Z. Also have spare R16 and U20 engines packed in there somewhere and 300 sq. feet of loft full of Datsun junk, err, stuff.

David - I really like the look of the front spoiler on yor 350Z!

Thanks Joe.
It is sort of custom but it was tough to find. It has an air intake for each turbo at the front. The car was built by SP Engineering in LA for Muscle Machines Diecast for their SEMA show in 2004. It was the first 350Z roadster in North America and went off the dock straight to the SP shop...

Okay,, here is my stable the most expensive 86turbo zx around ,most expensive because lately it is used as a shelf to pile stuff on.
I realize I need to part with either the roadster or the ZX but am finding that hard to do. I need 2 other daily drivers and a truck for transportation the toys are when there is excess $$ for gas ,licenses ,insurance . I drove the 1600 some this summer . I didn't really want to show my cluttered garage next to Alvins

86turboZX.jpg
Also in the shed a lite plane I scratch built starting in 08 ,really close to covering now . And have a 1961 16' runabout 55hp for the lake .... he with the most toys wins right?
here is a vid of the plane flying if you are interested by 83 yr old Herb https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBclwCIoS-0" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
