Thanks streaminwild, funny the little 3 ltr. Flat six in the S C has more HP than the 454 in the coach. Just not the torque to tow it. I do manage to find plenty of side trips to keep the Porsche and me happy.

Love pic of you in the engine compartment, Bold. Is that beauty something you had to leave behind to head out on your current adventure. Ah the trade offs.

I've got a similar pic in the 911, but had to take the engine out to fit in there.

[QUOTE=PKI;1778670]We saw a Chrysler woody sedan with a matching wood tear drop trailer that the owner built from a vintage set of magazine plans. Very cool ride, except no AC.

Something like this gem, PKI? Would pair nicely with Denis's woody, no? I came across this home made beauty in Roswell N M.

Not too worried about thread drift in one started by Ray. I think his threads are famous for wandering a bit.

Fun subject for this one Ray, thanks

Cheers Richard

Yep, same disease, slightly different symptom!

Have owned other AS aside from the current one. Numerous Harley's but no Vette, but a number of Mustangs. On your list two of three - but I also consider the Mustang to be an American Icon - we had the first one 64 1/2, wish we had her now.

Good post, fun.

Built bikes as a hobby for 36 years. Traded my last HD for my Airstream. First time I was ever satisfied with the disposition of one of my bikes.

Really sweet trio, Robert.
And your ford really intrigues me, with its unusual trim details and roof lines
Is it by chance a Canadian built car? Or a low production #s model, just not commonly seen. With the white roof and sidewalls bracketing the black body It does look SO NICE, do you tow with it?

Wow, RFP. Your 930 pops in that pic, ( that's the pic on the left, a turbo with the fender flairs). I'm wondering if like some of the beautifully restored vintage airstream trailers. Does the high and climbing value, gets in the way of being able enjoy using it for the fun it can bring.

My S C is a nice driver quality car (ten footer) that already had plenty of rock chips, so I'm able to feel okish with towing it along on my adventures.

Cheers Richard

Yeah, she and two other cars funded our Airstream purchase. I figured I can always get another. The C3 is kind of a pig, bloated, not very good overall, but I have always loved the curves. I rebuilt the motor, rebuilt the suspension, new interior, new paint. Always got a lot of compliments.

Streaminwild, that's an impressive collection of vettes there in your pic.
Would you share a little about your passion, and how these all came to live with you.
I really enjoy going to car shows and have come to the conclusion that the back stories are often as interesting as the the cars themselves.

Cheers Richard

I do have a Harley- and a Tundra.
I have always wanted a Corvette, but likely will never own one.
A corvette is simply too small and lacks practicality or storage or hauling ability.

Richard,

Thank you for your kind compliments on the Porsche! Regrettably, the present-and-climbing value of the car does mean it stays covered in the garage more than I would like. I do drive it, and those are 'special' outings. It drives beautifully. I've entered the car in six shows and managed five first-in-class and one overall win. The car looks like it was built this morning.

For the record, the car isn't a 930... it's a 1987 M491 coupe, number 40 of only 62 built (fifteen are accounted for today).

Congratulations on the beautiful SC... Towing it to beautiful places and then DRIVING it... priceless! Well done!

Rob

I agree with Ray on all counts. And with several other posters, too. I owned a Harley and rode it 50,000 miles all over the USA and Canada. Sold it last year when we bought our first Airstream. No Corvette, but still drive our 35th Edition (1999) red Mustang GT convertible daily. All three have been driven around the USA. None meet all our needs. On the ocean we paddle our two Necky kayaks. The most well made, reliable, healthy, adventuresome, and fluid dynamic of all our transport systems. AC? Just remove your dry suit! Very slow through Kansas, however.
