Cars!
« on: October 12, 2009, 03:02:13 am »
Well, lady X and I are pretty big into German autos. Our current fleet is two BMW's (a 92' 525ti and a 85' 325e) and two Volkswagens (a 88' Scirocco and a 76' *but soon to be a 39'* Beetle).


"Hubert" The 85' 325e

"Sprocket" The 88' Scirocco

...and lastly the new acquisition "Erika" the 76' Beetle.  She is going to be backdated to about a 1939 Kommanderwagen. This will involve removing all chrome trim, changing fenders, changing bumpers, changing the deck lid, adding a simulated split rear window, raising the car by about 1.5 inches, changing the rims to a 5 nut rim vs the current 4, change the tires, change the break rotors to the 5 nut style, adding a roof rack, removing the back seat, installing a vintage radio set and jumpseat for a funker where the back seat was at, changing steering wheels, changing panel to the older style, and remove carpeting for wood slats.  Here is as it sits now:





Here is what we are going for:

I do enjoy my cars... have a 2007 Sky and a 2008 Astra... not a Vauxhall or Opel... a very rare Saturn Astra.

Liking the Sky, made in the same factory as the Opal GT and Pontiac Solstice if I'm not mistaken.

You definitely got the best of the 3 ;)
On an extended IYNO break... for now.

Yepper, same factory.

The Opel is a close 2nd to the Sky since they share mostly everything with the Sky. I do like the Opel taillights a but more.

Yepper, that is my fun car... is tucked away for the winter. Can't wait for the end of April so I can take it out again.

My daily driver is an Astra...


That image was when it was a couple of days old... and before it ran into a PT Cruiser.  :879

My "car" only has 2 wheels and a 600cc engine ^^

Suzuki GSR 600 motorbike (the black tape you can see on that pic is required on track, to avoid shattered glass to spread in case of crash)


Aside of that, I'm working on a 1996 red Proton 415 car a friend is getting rid off.  This will by my first ever personal car, as soon as we fix a few little things on it :P

Yep, good fun ^^

(Eventhough I ended up in a medical helicopter last time, but that's another story :P  The bike and me are ok, no worry  :345678 )

Thnx God! I have some friends who are bikers too. They keep telling me, it's so awesome, but I still worry about them... So drive carefully, ok?  :34567
