Classic cars and hotrods

Been a while since we talked cars, got most of my winter projects done on my baby. Just waiting impatiently for spring!

@reddog that's a sweet ride!
People are not limited by the circumstance that they are born in. They are limited by the size of their dreams. Show them that their dreams can have no limits and in turn their accomplishments can be limitless.

I'm going the other direction. I drove a Tesla Model 3 last week and I'm getting close to ordering one for myself.

Mine isn't a classic in the same terms, but it is old enough to pass for historic rego over here in Australia.








It is a 1985 Suzuki MightyBoy it's a kei ute(truck as you guys from the US would say but that seems a bit of a stretch to call it that) factory standard they come with a 19kw (24hp) 543cc engine, but mine has a 29kw 796cc engine.

The pics you see are when I drove it from Perth to Adelaide accross the Nullarbor Plain. To do it I travelled about 90-95kph for about 10hours a day for 4 days (which was really pushing the old girl hard), But she didn't miss a beat distance wise it was about approximate to driving half way LA to New York, except in between there is NO cities and only about 2 major towns. You also only cross 1 state border (which is why I stopped for a photo)

I am still "wishing".  I have been crazy about classic cars since I was 5 years old and I have probably been to every car museum in the country.  But I am not "handy" so my friends have dissuaded me from every getting anything that I cannot have towed in to a dealer!

So, I have a couple of convertibles for fun.

My physical condition has deteriorated to the point that I cannot  even drive a three wheel motorcycle, or even a bicycle, anymore; so I had to let the bike go.  Next week I have to hire a broker to sell the boat for me.

It's true, when you have an 80 year old car, you better expect to work on it, alot! Luckily, I can still do almost everything on it. I usually plan major projects for our long winter so I can enjoy our short summers at car shows. And having 400 horsepower under the hood makes it fun to drive!
