We all obviously love bikes, but how about cars?

Really curious what kind of cars you guys have parked in the garage next to your bikes. Could be hotrods, classics, sports cars, etc.

I have an unrestored 1971 Dodge Charger R/T with a big block 383, a 1989 Pontiac Firebird drag car with a boosted 496 big block Chevy behind it and a Nissan 350z.

Let me know what you guys have!

Alex

The only one I really had that was worth mentioning was a 1974 Nova. I built up a 350 in high school, bored .060 over, upped the compression put in a small HP cam and a turbo 400 transmission. That was a fun car.

Have a 1995 Toyota Camry with just over 100,000 miles and a 2001 Ford Ranger Edge with 187,000 miles. Old reliables.

If it jams, force it. If it breaks it needed replacing anyway.

Parked in the yard is my wife`s 05 Caravan, my 97 4x4 Dodge pick up and our Camper, the "Magic Bus" 97 Ford E350 transport bus as drivers...
Deeper in the yard our 1966 Ranchero in progress It`s gotta 5L - 90 Lincoln running gear...
In the shop my buddy has Ann`s 71 Ranchero he is restoring, but will have EFI v6 running gear...
He told me to insure it for $40,000 once we get done with it...
I WAS gonna to TN to give a helping hand getting that project off the back burner, BUT> I hit that Deer....
I just surrendered my 72 Ranchero to another buddy who wanted it more than I did, He made an offer I couldn`t refuse...

Therapy is painful, BUT Needed,

I've got an old-ish Honda Accord with a little over 200,000 miles and an '07 Mustang GT that I just purchased a couple weeks ago. The Honda will be cleaned up and sold before too long, and the Mustang will be getting some upgrades.

I've always loved classic muscle cars, but circumstances haven't permitted me to own one yet.


Never attribute to villainy that which is adequately explained by stupidity.
