if i had jay leno money, the aston martin i'd want would not be a modern supercar. it would be this old shooting brake.



i bet it makes a pretty oil stain on the garage floor.

Currently been driving this Chrysler/Dodge POS quality though I like the looks and how it drives on the highway. The get-up-n-go is fun too.

I have to say this car is better in the snow than the '00 Outback I had given this weighs 4300 lbs and is rear wheel drive bias AWD. Still does not compare to a 4x4 Truck.

Had fun with PD, but removed it. I still kind of liked that look though.


Currently:


Coming home from an enduro:


Alright, I will return to lurking on this website.


I put a bunch of miles on my Magnum pulling a couple bikes around. I really liked that car. Mine had the 5.7 and AWD. Looks like yours has the AWD rims... Is it?
I had 400k on it when I parked it. I never thought that the build quality was poor.

I'd recommend getting overload shocks for the back if you're hauling/towing frequently. The IRS with that combination can eat up expensive tires rather quickly when the camber is out a bit.

The 4cyl ranger I have now gets better mileage so I've been burning the wheels off of it.

No no, it was his add on.

This is the same guy who has a blower on a late model marauder. Got to drive that once, the blower whine with wide leather seats just seemed so wrong it turned into a right.

Found this on craigslist.

1959 Ford Ranchwagon It has a 557 cid motor with twin 76mm turbos and is intercooled and fuel injected. C6 automatic trans with a manual shift valve body, 4 wheel disk brakes, 4 corner air bags, onboard compressor and air tank,....

He claims 800 foot pounds and hp varies with boost.

Seems like a hoot!

Couldn't build it for that, more than likely. At least not without a big garage, lots of equipment, and some mad skills.
