Well, itīs not much but itīs mine. 1949 Willys CJ3 in (mostly) stock and totally rustfree condition. All that needs changing is the ugly wheels (have stock rims, but need to get tires for them) and sew up a new softtop from canvas with removeable sides like the original tops. Ohh, also need to remove the rollbar, as it spoils the whole look of the "car" when the top is down IMHO.

Iīve been a carnut for ever. Started buying 60īs and 70īs US pony and musclecars 10 or so years ago. Iīve had a bunch of 60īs Mustangs, including a 65 2+2, a 72 Mustang Convertible, a 72 Corvette Convertible plus a few less interesting vintage US cars. Had to sell the last Mustang last spring, because of being unemployed, so the JEEP is something to tidy me over until I get a new job. Still, very happy to be able to have any kind of hobbycar, and the JEEP IS nice!

Attached are pictures of the Mustang I sold this spring, a -72 Mercury Comet which I sold this summer (to finance the JEEP), and finally the JEEP which is residing in my garage today!

Gosh - I'm not even going to post a photo . . . honestly, I think one of my brushless motors is worth more on eBay than my car.

One very nice advantage of my ride: I NEVER have to worry about someone dinging it.

The red one is my daily driver, a '68 Datsun 2000 Sport, 150 HP, 5 speed and about 124mph. The gold car is my '72 Jensen Interceptor Mk III. Built in England it uses a Chrysler G series 383 (300HP) and is good for around 135mph. My Mk II Interceptor uses the E series (high compression 330HP) 383 so it's a bit faster (or will be when I finish restoring it!).

The Interceptors are a very nice mix between British sportscar tradition and US muscle. Too bad Jensen never made a soft-top Interceptor, or I would have got one. Never really could stand the Jensen Healeys nose!

That Datsun sure is a nice car too. Never even heard of that one (which is actually kind of surprising for a car-nut)!

Ohh, nice Camaro too!!!

I just bought a Saturn VUE Redline AWD V6 in electric blue, so my SC T-Bird is now officially the weekend toy. The 13 MPG was killing me! Dyno'd at 372 HP dry, 446 HP on the bottle.

Not really mine, but I have nearly unlimited access to them all.
The 2500 is mine, great pickup, hauls all of my airplanes and paintball gear and a few friends and a trailer very well. The Caddy is my moms daily driver, good for formal dances if Im on a double date or something like that, or picking up my grandparents, otherwise I never drive it. The Thunderbird is my moms car, girls LOVE this car, the last date I went on and took it my girl's mom nearly made me take her instead

I would have taken a pic of my dads F-350 King Ranch dualie, but its cold outside and it wont fit in the garage.

I picked this GSXR1000 new two weeks ago. 170 kg and 165 hp makes for a nice cruiser It bookends the GSXR series nicely with my '86 GSXR1100.

Also have a '68 Charger, which I might just drive for the first time this year on the weekend.
