Just once, not to be unpolite, let's talk about cars: Yes I agree with you, the Sports Jaguar is a nice looking car...even if I would gladly exchange it by an old E type, the one from the late 60's...now, that one is a timeless beauty with lot of curves and all in the right place:

About the Mr2, that's a complete different story. It was a car made by Toyota engineers as a work study in their own time, not a production car and it happened that, at that time, Toyota was just interested in putting a more sporty look to its image (Formula 1 and all) and surprisingly has produced a car that is completely atypical from its "normal" production. Itís really a sports car (central motor), with less than 1000kg and amazing brakes that can give you (in an open and deserted road mountain or on a track) a joy ride and lots of fun.
The car has an incredible number of after market pieces designed for it, that go from full body kits to turbos. Mine has tuned up chassis, TTE and Koni suspensions (and a lot more) and in some time it will have a TTE designed turbo - 0/100km/h in about 5s (TTE are the guys that make the Toyota F1). It is also an inexpensive car, at least before you start adding and modifying things, and it is not an uncomfortable one.

I also like its looks:

But if you don't like it, you can always change it :

Sorry guys...and that will be the end of car talking.

think it shows currage doing a car and gotto disagree, think his way of rendering is a bit odd and i see potential in kasten's car that has classic lines like this xk120 from jay leno's collection, sure the bugatti is rare and worth more

had a woman once that gave me more problems than this e-type but got wiser and today got a small suzuki alto, few girlfrends and a boat, i probably never get wise

Guys Guys Guys!

We start off talkin bout women - and within 4 pages- your talkin bout cars!

Check out these hot babes!



http://www.ladiesletsgofishing.com/default.asp

I dunno - I think I might, just move to Floridah and join their website - whattaya think?
Quote:
Fat lazy bearded charter skipper, aged 46, slightly used (and abused)...only one former owner, built for comfort - not for speed!

Already has own boat and motor(s)...

Seeks raunchy fishing lady for discreet fishing trips...butt nekkid!
Trust me - I'm from the govt and I'm here to help you!
Hmmm - so whattaya reckon?...

Maybe (for a laugh) we should ALL join up with their forums...

We would need first to agree on our pseudonyms so we each knew who we were, once we got there! (and didn't start trying to chat each other up by mistake!) Yuk! (My luck I'd end up with Yipster!)

Hmmm, pseudonyms we can all recognise eh?

Bergalia = Bernice

Yipster = Yvonne

Safewalrus = Ceilia (Seal - walrus)

trouty = Tereesa Green (Trees are green - former forester!)

Hmm, you can just imagine us lot getting away with joining a womens fishing group...can't you - how long do you reckon we would last?...before they were onto us?

I'd give us.....ohh maybe 2 minutes...or less!

So - what say you guys?
In for a penny, in for a pound?
Last man standing buys the drinks?

Hey - we could pretend we were all members of the downunder chapter of "Fishin Chicks"...wanting to affiliate with their organisation..

Hmm, the plot thickens! Any better idea's?

Cheers!

Walrus

we definitley are NOT going there! (but yes I hear you!).

Rally the troops - I feel a raid on a womens fishing website building a head of steam!

Fishin Chicks downunder chapter...a charity dedicated to - raising funds for Women with hairy feet syndrome...

Hey maybe we need to load a bogus Fishn Chicks Charity Downunder web page as a cover for our story first... anyone good at web pages?

Hmm - i'm thinkin if we do this right.. we might last for - well maybe 3 minutes before they are onto us...is there a proper ettiquette for a womens fishing website forum?

Mabe I need to study up on this - by spyin on em a bit...before we blunder on in and wreck the joint!

My luck. I'll trip on my high heels in the doorway!...maybe my cover story needs to be I'm the one recovering from an alcohol addiction - you get the be the gambling addict Celia....losing thousands at gin rummy down at the rsl club - not to mention the pokey machines your addicted too....Fishings your outlet to distract you away from gambling - while - Fishings to stop me drinkin - yeah, that'll work!

Yipsters er Yvonne is the pretty one of our group (but with a halitosis problem...keepin all the guys away...and needs help)..

Ya'll still with me here?

Feel free to help out here!

Cheers!..oops - that'll hafta become..Cheerio!

Cheers!...damn Doh!

Cars?

Mine:
Porsche 1977 911S 2.7L CIS Silver Targa with about 100,000 miles on it.

MR-2, the car Porsche should be making - not SUV's.
