1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    What's not to like about the 2011 GT? It's an incredible car at an incredible price. It would go well with my longwings.

    Nice. How is the suspension on long trips and such? The prices on CPOs seem to be pretty reasonable lately so I've been getting tempted.

    The stiff suspension is fine on road trips; less so in town if the roads are bad.

    what does the interior look like?

    After all your comments on other cars (can't remember exactly, but general impression), I can't believe you like that Mustang. Maybe a classic Mustang GT is understandable, but that?!

    Fiat 124 Spider

    Designed by Pininfarina (some say loosely modeled around the Ferrari 275 gtb) and to me, one of the most beautiful cars ever produced...

    A very simple, quick, top down driving experience.

    Holy shit.
    Yeah, isn't it awesome? Lister took a Jaguar XJ-S and offered a variety of modifications, from trim-only mods, to engine and suspension mods. A full-house version, like that blue one (really, they are very rare) was around 200,000 GBP. Nowadays they sell in the 30-50k GBP range, but are still hard to find (though I see two sold just recently, and a red one is for sale). I particularly love it when Lister lowers the trunk lid to give the car a wing, and that is really, really really rare -- more often they make the car a fastback, and get rid of the vertical rear window and the flying buttresses that I love. Naturally, the rear end had to be tubbed out and flared to accomodate the huge rear tires. Sometimes Lister messed with the nose/headlight arrangement to get a better Cv, but I don't really like that. But the way that beautiful V-12 looks with a twin-screw supercharger hanging off the outboard side of each intake is.....and it corrects that particular -12's one deficiency: it doesn't breathe well, stock. With the screws, it's cranking out over 700HP and good for over 220MPH -- in '89! They made convertibles, too. Some more pics of that blue one. Serious pron. I want it so incredibly badly. It's perfect. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] ~ H

    I had one of these when in my 20s and loved it; annoyed the hell out of everyone by jauntily springing over the door to get in. It's damned hard to find a good one nowadays - I checked around before buying my Solstice last month and saw nothing but rust, bondo, tales of deferred maintenance and bodges. A buddy of mine has two languishing in his garage in various stages of restoration, and I didn't want to go down that road. Great fun when they're good - revvy, with great steering and decent handling.

    The rear reminded me of [​IMG]



    And the old Jag Mk2 that was posted in page 2...as I was going to Albertson's [after just reading this thread] I saw one parked outside some irish pub in downtown SD. It was in great condition. Would've snapped a pic but light was green.

    I have spent the last 1 hour researching this car. This is going on the DO WANT list.
