My last car was a 1987 AMC Eagle wagon with 4inch lift allaround, jeep charakee suspension and the 4.0 engine bored out to 4.7 and supercharged,30 inch Mickey Thompson Baja Claws, safari roof rack with spare mounting, hi lift jack, winches front and rear. I went places jeep drivers had problems with. It was one mean bitch. Took it up Moab. If anybody here knows 4x4. It was in several mags. They were there at Moab one year and a tv show and they showed my car.
I had the whole thing Rhino lined inside and out. Had a State Trooper tell me he couldnt get a laser lock on me at the normal locations. He had to tail me to see how fast I was going but that isnt leagel in Mo. so no ticket. He just wanted to check out my car.
I really miss that baby.

1990 Mustang GT, 5 spd. Nothing special, but I miss that car.

Before that an '85 Mazda 626 coupe, an '82 T-bird turbo coupe (loved the turbo, hated the car), and my first car, an '84 Mazda 626 sedan (totaled within 4 months of getting it).

2000 Rainforest Green ZX3 (R.I.P.) -- Never even had a chance to mod it beyond some Sachs dampners, but at least my wife is still alive.

Prior to the Focus: 1996 VW Jetta

I have regretted that trade in since day one. Loved that jetta, hate the focus
My 1986 Jetta is almost road worthy
