NOT A TA

@sgvcns Cool that you're using the Valiant as your daily. I had a Valiant I did a chalk mark restoration on and then used as a daily driver for years. It was the first full paint job I did back when we still used acrylic lacquer.

Had a 1953 VW Zwitter (rarest of all beetles) back when I lived downtown Delray...  The lighted semaphores confused the hell out of people...  Even hunted down a supercharger for it :lol:

Crazy torque, fuel burned a hole in my wallet, and chicks swooned.  :lol:  Just kidding, went from 31hp to approx 36... ^_^ very little appreciable difference.

This was my first car; The Sixty-Nine Coke Can...  Got it with holes in the floor and putrid yellow cause it was all I could afford when I was 17.  Some kind of crazy tuxedo paint scheme before tuxedo was even a thing.  This car went to The Keys every weekend, back when it was still cool down there... Not covered in concrete and locked fences everywhere.  Oh the care-free memories... :innocent:

My Tacoma when she was prettier. 4"/6" drop on some imported Japanese wheels, flowmaster muffler, K&N. She isn't fast but she sounds like it.

Nice truck, don't think I've ever seen wheels like those.  They've got a kind of land speed racer vibe.

They're Japanese "VIP" style wheels. I had a Lexus GS300 I was going to build in that style, but a kid blew a stop sign and totalled it out. I'd love to throw money into the truck again, but I need a nicer vehicle to go on sales calls, and I need a bigger place to live. My dog needs a yard and now I need more room for my palms.

That 4/6 drop reminded m me of a little truck I had back in the day....  95 dakota...  Loads of speakers inside and outside, a couple screens, a dozen hidden purple neon tubes under there made the coolest ominous glow and even rigged up a 10,000 bubbles per minute machine out of the rear camper window for rides in Fort Lauderdale and Miami :lol:
