I'd give $120k for this Saleen S7:

Attachment 65806

Garage queen Saleen S7 has done only 240 miles in 13 years!

They're a bit thick in the rear, but, damn if that ain't a beautiful automobile.

0 - 60...2.8 seconds

0 - 100...5.7 seconds

0 - 200...27 seconds

Top speed...248mph

I guess it'll do.:drool:

Going to auction, with no reserve.

The $120,000 is OK, but it would cost a fortune for a full time guy to pull me up and out of the damn thing. :haha:

My best friend's mother kept her late husband's dually Chevy, because it was so easy to get out of. She'd had both hips replaced and didn't do the rehab, so she was worse off than before, but she could climb into the thing pretty well, with the running boards and whatnot. Getting out was as simple as sliding out and falling to her feet.

Your, and my, left hand would always be dirty from putting it down to get up out of that car.:lol2:

Then again, I could live in that car.:love:

Well it is easier to get in and out of now. :lol:

Do you think it feels like riding in a stage coach?

Gravdigr 12-12-2018 12:37 PM

I don't know, but I bet this one does.

So, I came across this story.

Never mind that.

This car is pictured at the link and not mentioned anywhere in the piece:

Attachment 65821

Pretty rad looking piece of kit, no?

Please to notice that there is no provision for a driver.:eek:

And that it says Roborace on the spoiler/splitter.

Fully autonomous racing at ~200 mph. What could go wrong?

Slot cars done growed theyself up!

Remember when you were told it's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission?
Not always a good plan...

Went looking for the place across the street form the Chevy dealer. Quick look, didn't find.

I found a nice bumper/fascia cover for a Grand Prix, though.

Steve McQueen’s 1979 Pontiac Trans Am pulled from Illinois barn

Attachment 65865

From Steve McQueen's last movie The Hunter:



McQueen played real-life bounty hunter Ralph 'Papa' Thorson. McQueen stood ~5'9" weighed what, maybe 175 lbs, Thorson was 6'2" 310 lbs.

Quote:

...there is a "different Papa than the modern day bounty hunter. Papa is also "a church bishop; Master bridge champion; renowned astrologer; criminology alumnus of the University of California, Berkeley; child nutritionist, aficionado of classical music."
~Christopher Keane author of the biography the movie was based on

If it wasn't pink it would be cool...

Attachment 65881

But I'll never be as cool as this guy...

Attachment 65882

:facepalm: :lol2:

Gravdigr 12-20-2018 10:09 AM

I almost said he fucked that car up but good...

...then I saw it's a Seville. Damn near anything is an improvement.

Gravdigr 12-20-2018 10:22 AM

This makes me drool, and weep. This guy has more drool-worthy cars than I've seen in one place. Over a million dollars' worth of 59 Cadillacs. Corvettes, including a 9 mile 1980 model. Superbirds, prolly over a million dollars' worth. Chrysler 300s. A Chrysler Airflow. Jaguars. Beautiful fucking Jaguars. Road Runners. Daytonas. Superbirds. A Dan Gurney Special Torino.

All out in the country, talking BFE here. In barn, after barn, after barn...An old man and his dad amassed these cars. He bought/traded for what he thought was cool, not because he thought they would increase in value. Almost all of them increased in value. Most are either restored or in as new condition.

I think they owned a dealership at one time.





So much better bigger.

If you like cars, bring a napkin.:drool:
