Back to the 90s awesomeness:

Parents had one, ex-driving school car. Pen marks on the ceiling and a the hardware for the 2nd pedal.

Jim, great post!

I've now spent an hour researching central Asian nations, reading, and watching YT vids of containers being loaded with cars and unloaded.

At 3-4am.

Someone put a Grand Am front end on a Skylark!?! And they seem to think it is worth $1200!

How timely.....

A 1987 CRX Si followed me home from an impound auction last weekend. Minimum bid + fees + towing + parts + lots of time swearing + time driving around getting parts and I'm not yet at the point that I can get an inspection (hopefully one spot of ugly rust won't kill it) and then "sell it on for a profit".

The amount of stuff I'm learning is phenomenal (exhaust work, done, brakes on the way) as I'd never attempt it with my DD because if I cock that up it'll be expensive/hassle.

Buy the nicest, best cared for car you can find to a price point and go from there.

I picked this up because of the slightly cultish following and the fact that folks are always looking for them. And boredom. Needed a toy to play with.

If I get my shit together I'll write it up and shop it around, may even stick in the Hooniverse Marketplace.

May I suggest that a plethora of ramming lead to perceived need for those stickers?

TPS is going with Taurii, I've seen a couple here and there and now I'm starting to see them with more frequency BUT they stocked up on 300 CVPIs before the end of the line. Currently TPS has 4 Taurii and 2 Explorers with the CVPI expected to last until 2016.

From chatting with some officers recently I noticed their CVPI was getting pretty ragged, I would hazard a guess for budget reasons they'll be extending the work life as long as possible.

The OPP love them some Tahoes and I hates them, impossible to decode the headlight pattern from a regular GM product.

I have yet to see a Caprice anywhere.

Note that those pictures are from LAST summer. The car is just north of Mtl and will guarantee they don't have foliage like that on the maple trees. Sitting here a good deal south we're just starting to get buds.

As noted above, ad 5 leaf blowers and do a motor swap. Because: Roadkill.
