Me and a friend's car at the drag strip a couple months ago.
My daughter picked this up back in late August. A bit of a mechanic's special, but the price was very right and there is no rust or clearcoat failure on this anywhere. Just some road rash, and a lot of fine scuffs and scratches. Spent this past weekend with the orbital, and hit it with Meguiar's #105, #205, and #26 yellow wax. Not perfect by any means, but it looks so much better. I am not a fan of black, but this one is metallic and has some really dark blue flakes in it (Nighthawk Black Pearl).
This was spotted up on top of Pike's Peak back in August. We followed it part of the way up.
Parked in a lot at the end of our street, on display during the Harper Cruise. First Type R I've seen in the wild. Unfortunately I was not allowed to drive it.
Where I work... last week taken with my new LG V20. Still getting use to the manual camera settings
I was in LA two weeks ago with an extra afternoon so I stopped by the Peterson museum.
At the track on Saturday.
Nice! I've got this one listed for a regular customer currently...
Oh that is lovely. Even with the USA regulated "round lights" of the time. I'm sure the design engineers at MB weren't happy with that compromise they had to make. The Dept of transport just didn't get the all in one headlight concept!
It's also got indicators on the front and rear fenders.
Yours is definitely the sleeker looking version. The DOT extras clutter the beautiful lines of them. I dig that goldish color too... one of my favorite cars to came through the shop has been a Hemi GTX in a similar color.
I really dig the dog-dish hubcaps and color-matched steel wheels look. The baddest factory hot rods came from the factory that way. All business!!
Nice! Since you brought up bikes and HD... here is my Grandmother in 1936
and my kid on one of my 2 project bikes before I tore them down... the 67 YR1 350 that she is on will have everything restored to factory specs except the red tanks and forks, I'm leaving the patina on them for now. The 71 CT1C behind it is my main focus and is being turned into a race fuel only, back road burner with custom paint, etc.
I'm all about kick start, air cooled, 2-strokes with drum brakes
Found in Cottonwood AZ
This is my daily driver with a few digital tweaks.
Probably the scariest car I ever drove....
The Amphicar. We have a few around here, being so close to the lake. (Note the boat registration number and sticker on the front fender.)
Here's a different Amphicar, in its other natural habitat:
This is from the cruise, five years ago. Sh'boom! Always a crowd favorite (see 2nd pic).
