Did you ever have an older car or pickup, that you wish you had kept?;)

I know of a GT6 that has been sitting for 30+ years in a garage.

Your garage ;)?

I would buy another as a keeper, if rust free and a steal. IMHO it's one of the best looking British cars. Otherwise, there's not enough motivation to clear space and haul it here.

Not mine, neighbor back in Chicago . Parked in his garage over 30 years ago, ‘twas running at the time and rust free. I haven’t seen it in years, though I play with the thought of making him an offer……….pretty sure the engine would be locked up. It’s red/black interior.

My first car was a 1968 Fiat 124 Sport Coupe. $3100 out the door brand new.

Rich

and the GT6 is a 1972
Rich,
If you have time to play with it, you should follow up on the GT6. They are easy to work on and a blast to drive. I drove my 128 between Atlanta and Augusta while courting the old lady. Still married. A bit more than 40 years...

At least you didn't hit the deer with the Spider eh? Ouch!
Not many cars have the front wheel where your knees are. (Slight exaggeration).....slight.

Currently I am working on a 63 Bug, One of the 850 is a runner, the other not so much but I do have a fresh engine for it. Rail buggy, Fiero (that also pulled DD duty while the truck was down) the GT6, and currently 3 motorcycles. I am getting up there so pairing it down a bit.....and that is paired down. There was a time when I had 27 lic and insured vehicles......Hi I am 691 and I have a hobby problem.

Lets see what I have on the phone...these photos are likely to have other stuffs as the main subject, I will try to tell you what is the deal with them. And if you want more just holler.

Here I am taking some photos of some target hangers that I was welding some holes up on. See they get shot at from time to time, and some of the folk that come out are not that great of shots.....at least that is my story and I am sticking to it. The body of the bug is on horses at the moment, the body needs new heater channels.

Africa Twin, the tail end of a Suzuki TS100, rebuilding the engine on the two stroke suzuki, you can see the tail end of one of the 850's on the lift, and the wifes XT225. Shop dog is Recon, she has crossed the rainbow bridge a few years ago....she was a good girl. Putting lights on the AT. I killed my last bike (deer again) and want as much light as possible.
