That's a Beamy Craft

And the ends are rather blunt, I hope she gets up on a plane and out of her own wake. :D I have only seen one parked never in the water in 25 years of owning a lead rag bucket.

Most of These cars Started on Craiglist n Stalking Story

This 39 car from Oakland started with a Craigslist price of 25,000 USD as the hits kept coming in the seller changed his mind and relisted at 30,000 then 33,000. I had called him and got a return call the first day the ad was up. The car was also listed on Hemmings. All posting used the same weak po...

All those cars and dough

And you can't get a respectable diameter pole for your dancer.

You guys are tough, nobody would show if there was a threat of rain in So. California. 8)

Fellas

When you are a old fart driving a red car is problematic. Resale red as we used to call it in my other wheeled hobbies. A MK2 owner is probably the real guy painted into a corner possibly stuck with Carnival orange I mean red and those vinyl stripes. Of course it would be easier if painting cars wer...

Please Do.

If your car has from from the US states some Dept. of Motor Vehicles offer a search like in Calif. has a inf70 form. I was able to track my car back to 1982 with similar detective work when I found the earliest PO for my car. I am still hoping he will find all his old Tiger tales and club stuff he s...

Only Herbie

The VW floats my 64 bug conv't was flash flooded 2xhosed it out changed all fluids and line dried the carpets. Not so bad but the later every where a bearing was speedo went bad.

Replicants

Maybe they are scared a Blade Runner will terminate them. The first step on the slippery slope is when a owner buys a valve cover tag from Sunbeam Specialties cause it looks a little tatty, and hammers out numbers that may or may not be correct. The idea that our friend spouts here that they can do ...

Hollywood Starlet

Like a Tiger how much is real and how much is nip tuck, and god forbid tuck and roll. Disclose what you are trying to sell. In the CAT forum there is a nice link to a UK comedy about a broom "why I have had this same broom for 17 years" Funny stuff much funnier than the grandpa's axe,that has had 3 ...

Disclose

I like C buy have to say, Alpine body panels are the only way to save a damaged car and all changes should be disclosed. A lot of cars were registered in BON some odd 20 years ago,what has happened to them since then should always be the question. If you do the math on it buying a nice SIV or SV car...

Wow

Having been thru the ringer and having my car TAC'ed this last month, all I can say is BFD to numbers match. Most everything gets moved around on these cars. These cars are toys to be played with, mine was!. A changed wing, an exploded drive train, numbers do not make the Tiger, but it all adds up. ...

vent

A buddy of mine a Honda R and D guy commented that all cars get vents so that when you slam the doors or rear decklid it does not box your ears as badly. If you look closely you can find them on modern beasts as well. Everyone was puffing a cigarette back then possibly a way to let the smoke out wit...
