While Carrie, Paul-Aaron and I will most definitely be making the trip to Carlisle this year, there is a good chance I'll be leaving the HookSport home for this one. The car's doing good for the most part, but has a few minor issues I don't want to risk turning into big ones by putting it through th...

Carrie and booked about a week and a half ago and it was a nice easy process. I was even able to get the same room we had last year since it worked out so perfectly!

I'm on Facebook, and I log in several times per day. I have a MySpace page too, but I don't think I've logged in for about 4 months lol!

Just wondering...does anyone else think that this could be the beginning of the end of Toyota in the U.S. market? With all the evidence that Toyota knew about this and did nothing, it makes me wonder what else they know about but aren't doing anything about. Personally, I would not buy a Toyota with...

Re: Sapphire

Yes it's the one Mike had, I am collecting up the rest of the parts now to complete the car, interior bits and such. I already had a lot of the stuff it needed, that was a plus. It will not have a Cossie engine by June though. Most likely a Volvo head 2.3 or perhaps a 4.6 modular engine. It's a cle...

A note to the nay-sayers, please don't confuse anything produced post 1994 with a Saab. GM poisoned and killed the actual company and propped up the new one with similar grills and emblems, and fanciful images about fighter jets. The dog and pony replaced the cars. Amen brother! Although there were...

I love the idea of an XR Shooting Brake! Here's an interesting idea for the back end: a first-gen Nissan Pathfinder. The size should be comprable and the back window has a forward slant that would complement the side window profile of the XR. Another possibility is the wagon-like hatch they had for ...

Rock Auto is TERRIBLE! I have repeatedly been sent the wrong parts from them and have long since given up on dealing with them.

At best, this is shady my friend. I wouldn't trust it.

Crossfire wheels would look sick on a Scorpio! Only one problem...the front and back are different sizes, so you'd need to find two Crossfires with good wheels to make this work.
