    Wierd old cars just because thread

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/1974-Renault...m=162344479994

    I believe I owned this oddity as a Matchbox car in the 70s and it was a favorite for some reason. Have never seen one. Owner was a noted Jehovah's witness writer who liked Friench Cars (and died in 2005.)

    Completely valueless and only for sadists, but interesting to look at nonetheless.

    There's one of those near where I live, I drive past it on my way to work.

    It's in pretty good shape; this Spring I intend to stop and meet the owner & get pics of my car parked next to it.
    Bro....do you own a DeLorean?

    Past few weeks spent some time in a few newer rentals. The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe was seemed top heavy and gutless. Is an "American" car built in Alabama though. Then put 1,000 miles on a 2017 Dodge Charger. It was the first Chrysler product I've driven in a while that didn't seem totally junky. I thought the electronic display and radio features were well done, and the interior materials were good. 8 speed transmission helps the V6 get surprisingly good gas mileage. Seemed loads better than the Charger I drove in 2009.

    Here's a project we passed on the road that my Dad wants. These go for a little more money than you'd expect.

    You got to check in more often. Life moves pretty fast around Today.com. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
    Three rules of DeLorean ownership:
    1: Always use the right tool for the job.
    2: A hammer is always the right tool for the job.
    3: Anything can be used as a hammer.

    Before I can answer that, I'm going to need to know your thoughts on Nazis. Good? Bad? Misunderstood? If they came out with a Spring line, would you wear it? You answer might determine our relationship.

    Though I have to say I started up ol' 7041 the other day after over two weeks of sitting (damn making a living!) and she when boom on the first turn in 20 degree whether. It was a nice, even exhaust burble of goebbelsgoebbelsgoebbelsgoebbels.
