We hit the track with Flyin' Miata's latest power adder.
Do you have a liking for a horrible car? I do. An AMC Pacer. No, my mom didn't drop me on my head alot.
are you sure? you might have amnesia due to the constant drops

a Toyota Echo, fitted with an Automatic...
and for a really perverse reason, I seem to like Miatas, but everyone here seems to think they're gay.
Eagle Summit Wagon. I drove them alot as a tech at a Jeep/Eagle dealer. I found them to be tossable and approaching fun with a 5-speed.

It doesn't take a lot. One really good time will do the job.
Oddballs that I like -
Mercury Zephyr Z7, the one with that weird extra thick B pillar and narrow C pillar. AMC Matador coupe. '60-'62 Plymouth Valiant "toads." Pintos.
Misplaced nostalgia: While the car that I sold that I missed the most is now my C4 Corvette, sometimes I wish I had another first generation Probe GT or a LeBaron Turbo. In better condition than the ones I sold, of course.
This one. It's a 1956 Troll.
Leaving the wide open invitation for wise cracks, where is the Troll from? Scandanavia? German? Not British, LHD. Never heard of it.
I like the Mercury Capri for an oddball. The first generation was neat, but not quite as hot as say a Vega Cosworth. The second generation was basically a Mustang with all the same performance potential, but never really caught on. The third generation was actually faster than the original Miata 0-60, but we know how that comparison ended up.
And what's up with Lincoln/Mercury in general? They sold the Detomaso Pantera! The Cougar was never a horrible car (Muscle Car, Thunderbird offshoot, then compact coupe) but I guess wading through all the old people to buy one turned people off.
beaterworld is from Norway?
No beaterworld is from Colorado
Volvo 240 wagon.... Dodge Neon.... and Ford Festivas. LOVE Ford Festivas.
1973 Pinto station wagon, 2.0l and a 4 spd. Preferably white with the brown interior, and tinted windows turned purple. My first car reborn.
