To all you sports car nuts, I'm a British sports car nut and would like to start a sports car club in TV after the first of the year. Let me know if there are any more sport car nuts out there that might be interested. I would be willing to be the founder of this club with help from other car nuts.

cool car club!! now we are talking! this is exactly what I'm looking for!
monte carlo SS to quatroportte! we need a way to be connected to communicate about where to buy tires locally, where to have the suspension adjusted, where to buy coco mats! Who to trust to service; and who not to trust...

I love all those classics that I saw @ cruise night 2 weeks ago, but they are for the most part garage queens. Wish that I had the luxury to afford..

dad..I saw an XK8 at spanish springs 2 weeks ago,,

How about a club for the "Not Sports Cars"? ;D

I own a 1991 Geo Metro Convertible with a 1 L/3Cyl engine like this:


The Villages Florida

I know, I know.... it goes 0 - 60 in 3min. 1rnfl A colleague of mine threatens to pick it up with a backhoe and hide it in one of the dump trucks in the Gas Co. yard.

punkypup,

not only is your car cool, it is exclusive! how many people can say that they have a 3 cyl? politically correct and great for catching the scenery!

Thanx steve0528 & redwitch,

I don't know why but I have this thing for funky little cars. The Geo is getting a complete rebuild this winter. I found a JDM engine with 24,000 mi & an auto transmission with 26,000 mi. on it. By the time spring rolls around I'll be ready to start working on the interior.

I'm looking for a 1.6-liter, four-cylinder Suzuki X90 4x4 next: evil6

Which frozen tundra are you moving from? I moved from Alaska to Orlando then to TV.

Have a great day.

Dennis,
Not quite as frozen as Alaska! In Rhode Island today, we are enjoying the first frozen precipitation of the season! Not much accumilation. just enough to cause many, many traffic accidents. New England drivers are dangerous on dry pavement.
