    I would respect them much more if they upgraded brakes or steering equipment. The drum brakes on those cars were barely adequate to lock up wheel/tire combos with relatively much lower mass moments of inertia and with lower 1970s coefficients of friction between the tires and road.

    i agree most dont but if you look close at some you'll see rear discs and some big big brake kits. like most genres you have the good and bad. there are plenty of this type of car with brake kits, a few i posted ^^ have them.

    good example

    Is that real?

    If it is, that's a helluva pic. Looks like a painting by a master artist.

    Sept. 16 and 17, 2011 Mid-Michigan Motorplex in Stanton, Michigan is hosting the Pure Stock Drags.

    These are cars from about 1958 to 1974, classic American muscle cars with factory appearance, stock size tires and engines and transmissions that at least appear stock. I'm sure some have been tweaked and tuned but there are a few original cars.

    Here is a link to the website with info, some videos and pictures.

    Here is a link to an 11 "supercar" 1/4 mile race
    http://www.wimp.com/dragrace/

    Sadly, the car similar to mine didn't win, but at least one like mine ( less 50hp and about 100 ft Tq) didn't finish last, and was still chosen for the race.

    The last Ford Crown Victoria rolled off the St. Thomas, Ontario assembly line today at 12:30PM local time, after 32 years of production - a record surpassing the Model T.

    . . . And every single cab company owner in NYC is royally pissed.

    Honestly, I can't blame them. Those old Crown Vics and Grand Marques are absolute tanks. If I wasn't into sports cars, I'd own one myself. I honestly would. Sheer tanks able to easily do 200,000+ miles. You don't need crumple zones when you're driving a tank.

    Only downside, other than a lack of sporty performance, is that they don't handle too well in the snow. But if the weather is that bad, screw it! Stay home. A truly sad day for an American icon.

    That would be mostly the fault of the tires.

    I considered getting one of these once, but good riddance to all Hotchkiss drive vehicles that don't have USDOT numbers on the sides. It's not 1979 anymore.

    In some ways, that's too bad.

    Remember when cars didn't have crumple zones. Get into an accident, both you and your car would survive. Trunk space bigger than studio apartment nowadays. Full-sized adult could stretch out and fall asleep on the backseat. Yeah, 1979 wasn't a perfect year, but I'd honestly prefer it over 2011.

    Jep, your last post was removed due to being composed of several hot-linked images. Hot-linking is not permitted.

    I haven't checked all your images, but any other hot-linked images will need to be removed.

    As an addition point of information, your extended use of "tinypic" has been creating a situation for some of extended loading time. Some of the images don't load, but leaves the browsers in a state of constantly awaiting the images to load. I don't know the extent of the problem or the number of members having to deal with the situation.

    7 miles???

    The guy bought it, it was delivered, and after 7 miles he realized he couldn't fit into remotely comfortably??

    One of the oddest listing I've ever seen on the Bay.

    Oh that would be too easy - the guy bought it, and then even though it had been driven 7 miles or less at the time, he paid more to have the Evolution upgrade added to it. And then he somehow came in full possession of the car despite the fact that Ferrari doesn't allow FXX owners access to the cars outside of track days. And then he didn't do anything else with the car, because it's not street legal, and driving it on a non-Ferrari track day would have made news.

    Quite the mystery.

    My gut tells me there's something wrong with that FXX . . . Something terribly wrong.
