Anyone here drive one? Post a pic!
I'll start...

My Toyota Soarer/Lexus SC

Also, do you drive it to your dive spot? I do and its one heck of a squeeze to fit all the gear in!

PS. Please dont turn this into a import/domestic debate. I love muscle cars too!!

Chewy, nice colour/wheel combination! Silver/Grey always works well for euro cars!

I picked this up (MX6) to play with, unfortunately I never seem to have the time, to hook it up. It is cheap, and in prime condition, now if I only had the time. The wife uses it as a daily driver right now. The little red one is my current toy, but the Jag XJ-S is the family baby.

I drove a Suzuki Aero before getting Edgar (shown below). It was kinda like Suzuki's answer to Fords Focus. It was a fun little car, but it doesn't touch the Cooper.:smiley20:

And the last diving trip I took, I fit three tanks, my dive bag, tent, duffle with cloths/munchies, hammock (one of the fold up into a bag deals), and guitar with a little room to spare. :smiley36:

Perhaps the title of this thread should be changed to simply "Imports." :smiley1:

No longer in my possesion, but I know where it went and should be able to track it down if I ever want it back... which is just about every day!!! But the car was in shambles when I let it go, hopefully the new owner did something with it.

Anyone who buys either an import are one made non-union should be up for capital punishment.

I don't want to start a big argument, but in my opinion, unions are the biggest bunch of crap ever... They sound good in theory, but I would never ever join a union - they have done some good things, I know, but the overall way they work is not for me...

I couldn't imagine being happy in my job and being forced to go on strike because someone else didn't get something they wanted, and now I'm getting paid a fraction of what I was getting paid...

It may work for some people, but it is definitely not for me...

And as far as buying an import - if they can build something more reliable and nicer for similar money, guess where my money is going...

I had a 77 about 15 years ago during my college days...bought it for $500 (engine blown), had a used engine put in for $500, and then slapped a $200 Maaco paint job on it and sold it for $2,000. I loved driving it, but that tail-end is so light it's easy to lose control. My cousin had one almost completely restored that was totaled when he lost control going around a corner at just 30mph.

I never really noticed that problem, but then again it had a $2000 (in 1989 $$'s) suspension under it that was good for solid 1g+ skidpad runs. Swapped the SU Hitachi's for a Holley 390cfm 4bbl kit. Too much carb at low RPM, but get it over 3500 rev's before punching it and HOLD ON!!! Real SU's or Webers would have been nice but it was much easier finding people to work on a Holley in East Texas....
