wings&wheels, thanks for the pictures. Your current TR looks very nice! Very nice. Wasn't that color called "Magenta"?

I bought my '71 in San Jose, CA from a postal delivery woman. Darrell Sue Bxxxxxxx. I'll always remember her name. She was a cute little thing. She had a Corvette previously, which was stolen IIRC. She bought the TR as a replacement but ended up not liking it. I bought is just out of warranty. It had just over 12K miles on it. To you young folks, warranties on many cars back then were just 12 months/12,000 miles. I proposed to my wife in that car. It served me very well.

I sold it to my best friend when it had 156K miles on it, back in 1985 (I sold both the TR and my BJ7 Healey for a V12 E-Type - big mistake). My TR was one of the most reliable cars I ever owned. I never had any problems with it. My best friend still has it although it no longer runs because it's sat in the garage under a cover for 20+ years. It looks just like the day I sold it to him. It has flawless original paint and a 95% interior. He's offered to sell it back to me for what I sold it to him for - $6500 - but I have four cars already, and only a 3 car garage. I feel bad enough leaving our Honda Element outside.

The TR6 was a great machine. There have been several for sale recently on Bring A Trailer. Prices seem very reasonable to me.

antikovi: You are older than I thought. WTH is with your list?! Is there a 1:1 correspondence with girlfriends? :-) Careful in the Smart car. You could die in that thing if you get hit by a bicyclist!

I forgot this one (and I do not know how): Alfa Romeo 146 1.6 Boxer. That thing had 105hp, but gearing was sooooooooo good that it would obliterate 50hp up similar sized cars. Though, max speed due to that reason was only 182km/h.
I got Sienna bcs there is nothing more practical than minivan for family purposes. No one wants them anymore, so used prices are much better than comparable Highlander with same engine, tranny, platform, AWD, but Highlander is much smaller. With Sienna purchase I can save more money to get myself BMW 335i or Audi S4. I kind of narrow down to those two vehicles, with stick shift, of course.

Shannow, interesting machines. I had to look them up to know what they were.

bullwinkle, the 1965 SS....Nice!

Mcompact, as you said "1974 Monte Carlo(seriously modded- really)".....I laughed and started to vomit at the same time. Until I saw this picture. You know, it looks kind of nice.

Smiling at all of you,

Scott

edyvw, this would be enough for me to be wary of the 335i. Ridiculous.
