NO! No! Not more damn car pics!!!

Yep. Never posted a pic of my SL55 before so here it is. I could really kill myself in this damn thing, had it to an indicated 185mph before I ran out of room and was closing too fast on a Viper GTS. These cars deserve more respect than my lead foot can give them, hence it only has 9k miles on it. Renntech upgrades of course.

I do see the resemblance to my '60... Four wheels, windshield, leather... The cadillac though has fins on the fenders and the SL55 has them on the wheels.

The more I look, I see a Chrysler LeBaron convertible influence. Is it the rich Corinthian leather, perhaps? Or, the slight whiff of an overly exuberant Herve Villechaize?

Ok Ok.....I Give!
My fear of being labled a braggard has been so great that it has not allowed me to show off my collection. You've forced my hand.



This one was actually free. I simply told Adam West he was a "pretty good actor" and he gave it to me.



This was up for bids and Edward Platt and I went toe to toe. Alas, he missed it by that much.



This one cost me a fat bag of weed, 3 xtc tabs and I had to get the old fellow laid.



And the prize of my garage:



Personally it's my favorite but for some reason, I get the funniest looks from everyone I meet.
