    Peugeot... Are you actually going to be seen in public with that? :D

    My gay roommate also wants a yellow vespa.

    It's cool if you like to fuck guys. I mean. My buddy he fucks guys. .... In jail.





    On another note. Steve.


    Unless your vega is pushing atleast 350WHP You have the worst taste in cars.

    Yeah yeah ... we've been over this. It's a Cosworth. Think of an SR20DET powered 240SX with no power steering, and you've pretty much got it. It's a Vega that does 7000 rpm comfortably.

    oh, I only got the Peugeot so that I could trade this guy for his 89 Subaru RX AWD Turbo. I totally win. (The trade is going through)

    The xB is my girlfriend's car, the Neon was a gift from me to my mom, which I wound up working on / driving all the time because it was a piece of shit. (It looked beautiful though). I traded the Neon for a Yaris hatch, and gave that to my mom.

    The CRX I gave to my dad, and it's not driving now because the HG blew every 200 miles. I'm in the process of building it's new motor (Turbo EW, isky high duration cam, re-porting the head, adjustable cam gear, lightened flywheel, intercooler)

    The Civic was "basically" stolen. I gave it to a kid in trade for body work on the NX2000 (Who is now in the hands of ChrisM) and his car was stolen, so I gave it to him and said "we'll get together in a few days to start the NX". Well, he sold it and fled to North Carolina. (I'd known him for 2 years)

    I've yet to find it. When I do, I'll try to get it back. But he sold it for $2000.

    Steve, I like you...I really do.....but other than the fact that there were only 1446 built in 1976 (so its rare) I just don't get it

    I was hoping it was a swapped tubbed vega that does 10's. But I guess now.

    Steve, just buy my mirage. its a GREAT DD, and a formidable autox'er and track car. you get like 1K in tires, plus reliability in knowing you can drive the car cross-country at any time and only need an oil change.

    $5500 takes it :)

    We've been through this before. Nothing will ever convince you people how sweet the Vega really is, except driving it. I was in the market for a Vette when I bought it (after not winning the Lotus) and the Vega turned me away from them.

    With the new cam config (back to EAA Formula 2000 spec) fan removal and electric water pump, I'm confident in the result enough to challenge B with his M3.

    As far as the Mirage, No. Not my cup of tea / Not special enough to spend that money on it.
