This topic was suggested by Gary Walker (comp2). Its a way for members to learn a bit about each other, and gives you guys a chance to show-off your other vehicles. All community members are encouraged to contribute and add pictures of the non-De Tomaso vehicles (including motorcycles) you proudly own.

You probably meant what other "interesting" cars we own, but these are my "daily drivers". Both are great vehicles, but if I had to sell every car I own and get by with only a single auto, it would be my VW Touareg without question. It is fast, quiet, comfortable, reasonably fuel-efficient, loves to play in the deep snow we get, tows almost 8000 lbs and has room for five with luggage. I even think it looks great.

Definitely some nice rides in everyone's stables! Here are a few of mine...

66 Mustang GT, currently in the body shop for new paint to return to stock vintage burgundy color.

Prior to being stripped:

70 Mach 1 Mustang - This is a 20 year old picture from when the car was still running. It was then disassembled for restoration and is currently a shell on wheels with a new suspension and some fresh sheetmetal where rust had to be removed, but no wiring, interior or drivetrain yet. I have lots of work ahead of me on this one.

And, the more pedestrian daily drivers (no pics on this computer)...
  • 2011 BMW 328i
  • 2006 Toyota Sequoia
  • 1995 Toyota LandCruiser FZJ80
  • And the kids' cars


But most importantly, the Banzai Runner:

'47 Dodge. Somewhere around 47 years ago, my dad taught me how to drive in this thing.
Over 1500 miles in the two years she's been back on the road.
I like it just the way it is.

Sorry Kjeld, the yellow one. She is a fan of Kill Bill and there are no prizes for guessing the name of the car....

Well, one thing is clear, collectively we have GREAT taste in automobiles! Big Grin Perhaps somewhat eclectic too.

Glenn, you MUST have one of the nicest (and largest) garages in Sask! Your cars really look fantastic.

My GT40 isn't for sale and unfortunately isn't an original either. It's a late 1980's GTD replica. It has had a fair bit of sorting and upgrades over the 8 or 9 years I've had it and has turned out to be a very satisfying car. It would fit right in with your collection though.

Mark
Thanks Mark...Yes I have had lots of people "bug" me about my garage/shop...it is 2600sq.ft. on the main level and 900sq.ft. on the second level that has a 6' x 11" lift to take up quads and sleds for storage.
Your GT40 looks great! the stance is bang on. I always keep my eyes open for quality kits as the GT40's are in the 250K range now. I respect the well built replica as it can provide a great experience if your into driving raw power. What engine are you running? I would love to see some pics! If you know of any good kits in Canada my ears are open.
1970 Ford Capri V8 Perana, Very rare and originally made in South Africa. Very rapid, fitted with 302, 4 speed toploader and BW LSD.
This one just completed a full restoration

Here are the daily drivers of our family. A 1991 Toyota Land Cruiser, which used to be working for the Finnish army for the first 20 years. The 2005 Smart city coupe belongs to my wife.

My "Cheromog" (5.9 Grand Cherokee with Unimog axles and custom suspension)

I love it. I have a $500 1994 Grand Cherokee that I occasionally take off road with a removable winch, so nowhere near your offroad capabilities, but good fun. The most fun you can have at 1 mph Big Grin

How many times have you heard someone say "I wish I had the first car I ever owned"? Well, this is it for me! Given to me by my father 54 years ago. Its been through a few rebuilds through the years!

Does that cop actually have his boot on the rear bumper?

Always love seeing Mark's cars.

Including the one I'll always refer to as 'mine'!
I have to say that Chris Wilson's E-Type really is sublime. I think Julian would easily win the "combined top-speed" challenge by a fair margin. There hasn't yet been a car posted that I would park behind the barn.

Which brings me to request that Mr Hudson posts some photos of his amazing cars. I know the collection has been thinned out but there are still some impressive rides tucked away in mid-town Montgomery. How about some sharing Adams? Big Grin

To entice you, here's a photo of "your" Mangusta.

Below is a picture of a vintage high-performance aluminum-bodied vehicle in my collection.

Features of the 1969 Airstream Overlander include walnut paneling, full bath and two bedrooms. When motivated by its Disco tow vehicle it can achieve 0-60 mph by the next Rest Stop. Braking performance is similar.

Hi Mark,
I am already glad that I can keep my cell Phone into the air , I am not so handy to place photo's on this site.

Simon
At Simon's request, I am posting these for him. He has a collection that includes MANY De Tomaso cars including a few GT5-S and Targas, along with a beautifully restored Mangusta and a Longchamp GTS. Enjoy!

and all that anyone really needs in their garage: a GT5-S to arrive in style and comfort, and a GT40 to go fast when you get there.

Here's my present car. Somewhat inconspicuous, but it's actually an 11 second quater mile car with handling to match most supercars.
2013 Subaru BRZ with tubocharger, methanol injection, standalone ECU (similar to Motec) and wheels and tires as big as a lot of Panteras.

I'm hopefully getting a Pantera race car soon, so this baby is up for sale right now, only 5000 miles on it!
