    Boss! Too bad it looks like you live in an area that won't be receiving snow any time soon. :( Then again, we're half way through winter and here we've only gotten enough snow for me to do one donut in the morning but it was all melted by the time I got off work. :cry: We're usually good for at least a few multi-inch snow falls here, I'm sat here with my Michelin XIce snow tires just waiting to have some fun.

    Some of the cars are off the net, wish i had pictures of all my cars but i don't.

    Actual pics: black Renault 5, red Escort, Renault Alliance GTA, Jeep SRT8, Cobalt SS, dark grey Mazda 3, Subaru Legacy, S2000, Focus SVT, C6 Z06, dark blue Mazdaspeed 3, M3 sedan and the C7 Z06

    I still have the Jeep SRT8, dark blue Mazdaspeed 3, M3 sedan and the C7 Z06 i've had for almost two weeks now.

    No that is a 77 Chevy Monza. Mine was a charcoal grey in color. As for the Pinto mine was silver, my Datsun 510 wagon was orange, the Corolla wagon was a primer orange and my 90 Escort was dark red.

    I didn't have actual photos for those cars and couldn't find the exact colors on the net.

    Very cool, I'd like one of those as a project, the motors in those cars weren't great, but I like the lines. :thumbsup:

    Hey, nice collection JeffL.
    I'm an Auto tech up in Canada and I might post a similar list of cars & bikes I've owned over the years.
    I've had pretty good luck looking back come to think of it.
    It will be standard google pics as I wasn't taking pics back then, I was working/driving...
    Plus no internet back then, hehe

    So on the topic of lifetime of cars are any of the ones posted here concidered a "lifer"?. What i mean by this is a car you like so much that more and likely you'll keep it for the rest of your life.

    For me out of the four cars i currently own it's looking like my E36 M3 sedan and the Jeep SRT8 are going to be my lifers.

    Oh man, that's so nice! Seriously jelly!
    Are atmo-BOV's legal in the Netherlands?

    I actually just last week replaced my GFB BOV for a TurboSmart recirc valve. Unfortunately here in Aus the BOV's that vent to atmosphere aren't legal. I even purchased the trumpet for it. Sounded awesome :p
