Can't believe I did this.......

Post by Sneaky Pete » Wed Aug 01, 2018 12:40 pm

I have been a bit preoccupied lately doing DE's and work. I'm starting to feel I'm really beating my car up. Sooooooooo I stumbled on this. It arrives on Saturday! 1964 Spitfire race car with a history of racing for the past 25 years. This should be fun to bring to the track and possible vintage events. I'm searching for a 4 post lift to stack both Spits.....and a good pick up.....and a trailer.........god help me......

I do but it has rust that falls off in LARGE chucks when you look at it. Have my eyes on a 2005 F250 Diesel..they go forever.

Might I suggest: http://nationalpreownedporsche.com/?zip ... ection=asc 8-)

It'll tow the crap out of your cars while getting decent MPG (18-20 is what I usually see reported for towing a car in an enclosed trailer) and it's a fun vehicle on it's own.

I hear these things always "Ace" an emissions test, as well...

Ain't got no windshield! Don't you have to wear open face helmets during vintage events? Don't smile if you do while driving... :roll:

Would love to but that's to rich for my budget. I could put a pcar emblem on the back of the F250 I'm going to get.....true poser.

Considering that they just plug into the OBD port and believe what the ECU tells it, they sure do :lol:

And they fixed that anyway. Well... I know one that hasn't been... :twisted:
