    No car, but I do ride a tuned and modified 1994 Yamaha TZR 250 :)
    It's loud & pretty rare these days. I have a thing for 2 stroke street bikes.

    yeah I had one friend who wrote off an early RGV250 in his last year of high school. 250 2 strokes are all about handling and they're very fun bikes to ride on a nice flowy back road with plenty of corners. depending on what part of the world you live in, they're getting pretty expensive these days and I hardly ever see another 2 stroke sports bike on the road in NZ.

    This is my Alfa Romeo Alfetta Gtv 6! I replaced the original 2.5lt engine with a 3lt from a 164 and added aftermarket extractors, and also replaced the original trans-axle with one from a 75 twin-spark which has the limited slip diff. The ride height has been lowered with stiffer rear springs and koni yellow shocks.

    The 'Alfetta' was one of the first cars (if not THE first car?) to have the engine in the front and a trans-axle in the rear, giving it near perfect 50/50 weight distribution.

    The venue is Bryant Park Haunted Hills hill climb track.

    I had one of these, this colour with a 5.8l v8 until someone rear ended it and wrote it off, then i got one of these in metallic green with a 4.9l v8 and rectangular headlights
    [​IMG]
    again it got rear ended and written off so i got one of these, same colour with a shaker like below and a 5.8l v8
    [​IMG]
    i sold it to buy a wagon that i dropped a 5.8l v8 and 5 speed gearbox into and bolted on a set of original xc cobra rims, it kinda looked like this but this has different rims.

    yes those were the days, throwing everything I earned into making them look good and go faster. My old man and I bought a couple of coupe shells, 9 inch diff, 351 with 4v heads, c6 auto, and plenty of new panels from rare spares. Was going to restore from ground up, then I got married.......
