there's some geezer rolling around Syracuse in a MINT 91-92 red caprice; I mean MINT. The car looks so darn nice sometimes I feel like stopping at his house and putting dibs on it for when he kicks the bucket... contract.gif

there's a lot of that going around...seems everytime I snap my neck around and think "Hey, nice car!" there's some old fossil or other paleontologic relic behind the wheel and you just see a hat sticking up over the dashboard and knuckles on the wheel...I think sometimes that's why I haven't gotten in any trouble in this car yet...cops aren't expecting it. I can only imagine what it's like in a Roadmaster Sedan...

I see you trying to sell your 89 9c1 Lt1 on E-bay. peelout.gif
Good luck.[right][snapback]32528[/snapback][/right]



Shhh! I am "trying" to sell it to try and keep a person I know (live with) happy. I am very glad it only went for $821.00 that means I can keep it. I promised my wife I would try and sell it. I was pretty confindent it would not reach the $6,500 reserve. tongue.gif Now that we have these....

No, it's for when they see each other neked! Did anyone see Blue Collar TV recently? Think SNL except with Jeff Foxworthy as host and redneck themes. They did a parody of rescue 911 where a teenager accidentally saw his grandma in the bathroom sans clothing.. he went blind. yikes.gif

Seriously though, it's because wraparound sunglass are so darn practical, and most geezers don't give a dump.gif what they look like anymore. I've always been frustrated by "trendy" sunglasses that are super small and so if you look any direction other than straight ahead, you get bright light sneaking around the sides of the glass and your pupils get blasted. You won't catch me wearing wraparounds while I'm walking around at E-town, but if I'm on the way back, I'll be sportin' em!

So Chris, aren't those both her cars? I remember you saying that the mini was supposed to be the missus's little pocket rocket, and I can't see you getting a big thrill out of the Equinox??

Anyways, I'm glad you haven't sold the 89...

The MINI is hers (kinda) and the Equinox will be my daily driver in a couple of months when the McCabe family increases by 1 in March. I figured driving an infant around in an old police car with no A/C and that suspension would suck.

I guess I can give you that one....

So what are your impressions of the equinox? what's the powertrain in those things?

Scoping chicks at dragstrips is bad for your health. I saw a study on that somewhere.

Eh its OK. Its slow. But it handles like a car. I like it overall. The MINI however is like driving a street legal go-cart. I LOVE that! peelout.gif

They look like fun little carsI wonder if they'll keep making them or make any new models? I haven't really followed them all that much since they're not big American iron but I do think they're kinda cool and the best of the retro cars we've seen so far...

Found out lildevil.gif
Someone in my town has a Black Impala ss stored away with only 3,000 miles.



I've noticed since I've had my Caprice that people tend to tell me the comings and goings of other Caprices and Impala's they see around...good thing that doesn't happen with my pickup or that would be all I ever hear. There's more pickup trucks than teeth in my town.

DW you'd fit right in in Corinth...(thats not a compliment).

I keep seeing an SS on the Stony Creek road..asked my uncle who it was ,and he said he didn't know but had seen it himself!

Stony Creek--population 75ish!
Have seen the guy twice now,in passing,he looks at me like wheres this guy coming from....and I do the same! biggrin.gif

Next time I'll turn around and see if I can meet up with him.

Strange thing is I see quite a few SS rolling around Saratoga....and none of them seem to wave or care ....theres more than a few people who dont know what they are driving...or at least dont have the love for them most of us do!

Or are we just geeks that spend way too much time thinking/talking about a car!? sad.gif
Theres one clown that deliberately ignores me when he see's me coming...I wave to be friendly...he turns his head and waits for me to go away..................I hope to see him at the street light some day....He'll get a good long look at my tail lights....I'll toss him some ear plugs first...as a courtesy gesture!! lildevil.gif lildevil.gif

Chris, Chris, Chris.... banghead.gif

Infants have survived for thousands of years without A/C and with suspensions much harsher than yours... I can tell you from experience that you CAN drive an infant around in an old police car with no A/C and "that" suspension! SUVs be damned!!! Do not give in!!!! Old 9c1s are the perfect baby hauler! rockon.gif

You think I'm kidding but this one time, at band camp, no wait... at the end of our street I "pulled out smartly" (quite smartly indeed) with the wife and baby aboard and while I was getting a dirty look from Kim, our baby girl was laughing her a$$ off! We got lucky with our little one... biggrin.gif
