  1. There's a group of motor heads on this forum. How about we start a hot rod or rat rod thread? I'll post a pix of my 89 IROC, it's got a Corvette LT1 engine, bored 40 over. New tranny and rear end. I will have positrac in a month. I want to trade for a VW bug, old one or a Corvair. The IROC is so fast and runs like a NASCAR. Has some parking lot rash and I need a new wheel.......anyone else got something we'd like to see? I have a bad feeling I will be here alone......Over the week end I'm gonna have a friend take a pix of me smokin'em. DSCN3003.JPG DSCN3001.JPG

    Also not sure about your area but around me there are a bunch of place that will fix and repair your wheel. Older parts are getting harder and harder to come by had a 98 z28 at the shop and was almost impossible to get what I needed for it without going to aftermarket expensive parts.

    If you expand it to include vintage muscle bikes (motorcycles).
    I like my cars slow and reliable.

    I'm a fan of anything that has a motor the bigger the better in my book.

    That's a '35. He also had a black '36. Not a convertible, but a phaeton.

    Ebay there is also a site called Hemmimgs its a classified for all sorts classic cars and parts. Not quite sure what's involved to do it but they reach I wide variety of car people. It the same as anything else have to find that one person that needs it. But Hemmings is well known for hard to come by rare stuff.

    Kawi 1441r
    209 h.p. with current modifications. 2015 (The green and black Ninja)
    Lime green Ninja 2004 zx1200r and red 2002 Honda Superhawk belong to my wife. Built for her.
    The silver 71 BMW R60-5 I no longer own. But did for 20 years.
    The blue Kawi '72 750 king cobra is a frightening blast from the past. Currently in storage and my 2002 Kawi ZRX 1200 retro look bike.
    I have several others. Just no other photos.
    I've also owned a big block 70 Charger and a bug block 71 Challenger.
    Fast for a car.
    Not fast by motorcycle standards....

    I just perused their site and I was hoping to see a like item for sale as I have no idea what the cowling is worth, but they don't have any.
