How about a car that Baxter could appreciate... 1964 Triumph TR4
Yeah I know, not a super car or anything fancy, but hella fun... except for the electrical system (Lucas aka "The Prince of Darkness")

I still have one... need to re-build the motor. One day I will get around to doing some work and get mine back on the road.

That one is almost like mine... except my rims are cream colored without the chrome trim... hubcaps look like mine... can't really tell from the pic angel. Mine is red as well... (is there any other color)

The only thing I don't like about it was the + (positive) ground. Can be a bitch to install a US radio and speakers.

Haha, I used to build turbo kits for those! I can't only choose one though, theres just too many. I saw a GT500 mustang at the dealership when picking up our ambulance the other day. I'm absolutely in love with the car!

Any mustang from 64 1/2 to 2011 with a V8 and the 67-71 mopars with a 426 hemi. A short list of imports any 3000gt vr4s, supra twin turbos, rx7s and skyline gtrs. I guess anything that makes a decent amount of power and looks good doing it.

I was out riding my 1000RR when I actually had a GT500 pull next to me. We were doing 60 down a highway, and he pushed in the cluth and revved it up, looked a lil bit like Vin Diesel in the Fast and the Curious with a bigger than normal arm, and the girl in there looked cute. I was like "is this serious? I know he has some power under the hood, but seriously he is as dumb as all the tuner guys that want to race". So I shook my head after I dropped down to second, and just kept pace with him. We got to the toll booth, and he went slow out of there and waved me over just as we were getting out and was like "Dude, I had you!" HAHAHA, I blew him away after that.
