What's in your garage?

Post by cole455 » Tue Nov 04, 2014 7:58 pm

Being a member of multiple boards, I can't help but imagine that most everyone on this board has other classics stashed away. What other non-roadster vehicles do you follow?

I still keep busy with a 240z and a GTO.

240 was used as a daily driver for almost 10 years... Unfortunately the higher gas prices, coupled with the triple mikunis converted it to a weekend driver.

The gto rarely gets driven. I did take it to shasta in 1998 (complete with a 1600 badge zip tied to the grill). Seems like there may have been a picture of it on the old u20 bombers website? This car was used in filming the movie "dazed and confused" in the early 90's.

You guys are killing me! I love threads like this.

My daily driver is a '96 993:

And for a weekend/concourse type car I have a '71 BMW coupe:

Could my hand-me-down 96 Cherokee be considered a classic yet? My lineup, not in a garage as only the roadster fits. I'll need an actual garage if I want to own another classic.

Retirement fun-d. Just picked this up a couple of weeks ago after spending almost 3 years convincing the 72 year old lady owner it's time to let it go! Image[imgImageImageImageImage Worth more than the Roadster, but not as valuable! By the way James the BMW 3.0 is high on my wish list!

Hey, who wants a barn find if it dosen't match your truck! The pics had titles but they didn't show up. The pic with it cleaned up is misleading because It's still wet. The paint is shot, lots of cracking and blisters. Other than a cracked dash the interior is near perfect. All the chrome and stainless will buff out nicely. The car has been sitting for 24 years so I didn't dare try turning the engine, which will have to come out anyway to replace the slipping clutch which was the reason for it sitting in the first place. I intend to finish the Roadster in time for Solvang, so the Porsche will have to sleep a little longer. By the way, I thought the solex 2 litre was high output for its size, the 69 911 2 litre is 190 HP SAE! Thanks for the comments, should keep me busy when I retire in a couple of years. Mike
