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.

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.

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

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!

Simon's car collection is unbelievable. It's got to be one of the most impressive and extensive collection of DeTomaso's in the world. You've got some other rare and beautiful cars there too Simon. Thanks for sharing those photos. Wow.
Hi ADOBERETREAT, thanks for the nice words.
But there is for sure one or two another DeTomaso Collectors into Germany who have more DeTomaso's than me.
regards
Simon

ha! Great looking shots Mark. Loving the Mangusta, thanks for keeping it for me! Excuse my huge delay in responding, but just moved into 'new' garage. Dear Lord, why did I EVER keep 8,000 totally unusable parts, obscure tools, and useless lengths of wire, unmatable screws and nuts...

Anyway, stuff is finally 'in place' but much more sorting and work required. My 'new to me' place is about 50 miles from old place, now nearer where we live on Lake Martin.

Here are a couple of poor photos...

I was thinking the R8 would be a great year round driver up here. Throw some blizzaks on there and let her rip in the snow!!
Great interior in that car too

Tell your poor suffering wife I'll trade the FGT for the R8 straight up!

Actually called the Ford dealer today about some new car they're building. Smiler

Honestly, the R8 is the finest piece of equipment I've ever owned. No kidding. Fabulous exhaust note appeals to my inner redneck. The thing is screwed together pretty well too.
Thumbs up on the R8 fellas

Not 100% sold on the styling of the R8, but more than 100% sold on the engineering. In regards to mid-engine sports cars, the R8 replaced the NSX in terms of a logical/rational choice. Whatever the Asians had done, the Germans did better.
Richard, post #1. tell us more about yourself.

Here is something I built from scratch. I actually just got it titled and am able to drive it on country roads:

George, most people are extreme car guys. I think there is a legitimate call for an "Other Car" section. Most people here have interest in a variety of cars and interest. Some interest are not even car related. Just my .02c.

Daily Driver 2009 CTS-V. Tuned when new by Geiger in Germany for wealthy first owner from 556 to 650 HP. The cars in Denmark in the morning commute that can outrun this, well I'm still waiting to see one...

That MG is so clean, just a great lookin' lil' car. The chrome bumper cars are so much nicer...
Thanks,

We joke that we got the RV for the dog. We have pulled the motorcycles but prefer to pull the MG so the dog can go along!



The GM 3.4l V6 makes it a great driving car!
Here's my 1985.5/6 Porsche 944 2.5l NA racer with SCCA ITS prep. First of the series II cars with aluminum control arms and less VW-ish dash. Our VW parts bin Audi 5000 transmission gets the short ROW 5th gear and we run 7x15 Cookies with 225/50R15 Hoosier R7's or Toyo RR's.

We run as Pro44 with Conference / IRDC / SCCA in the Pacific Northwest. We ran as 944 Cup for many years but control our own rule set now under Pro44. Also runs PCA4 and can do Spec 944. 2600lbs with driver and around 150whp... underwhelming acceleration but just enough to stay ahead of the Spec Miata's... But more fun than I've ever had beating down hard on a car Smiler

Picture below is preparing to load for last weekend's Portland Rose Cup Races where we ran in the Small Bore group. My tow rig is one of the last Ford E350 Super Duty's built - Feb 2014. From the factory it was sent to Quigley for the Ford warranted 4x4 conversion using the F350 front axle, suspension, brakes and transfer case. Last of Ford vans that can actually pull 7k+ trailers. Lucky for me it sat at the Oregon dealership for a full year until I needed it, and I needed a black one to match trailer and a couple cars Smiler I'm slowly doing a Sportsmobile conversion over time including the pop-top camper.

And my other Black car, 1982 Porsche 930 Turbo track monster with 1994 3.8 RSR bodywork. 2450lb. with half a tank and 385whp/410wtq twisting the 4-speed with short Andial 8:39 R&P. Lots of mods including double adjustable JRZ shocks, 993 Big red brakes etc. Stops and accelerates real good on 275/40R17 front and 315/35R17 rear Hoosiers. The oLd sKoOl Bosh CIS needs to run rich so I get lots of flames out of the 3" dump pipe off the turbo. GT3 killa that hasn't seen the track since I built the 944 winter 2007. With prices moon shooting (bubbling) the past few years, I'm glad I stored all the original parts. Never selling this one, same for Pantera 6007.

1967 GT 500 I have owned this car for the past 17 years. It had been sitting in a basement garage since 1975 when I located it. The owner had passed away in 75 and the widow just kept it. Took about 4 months to convince her I should be the next caretaker. Did full restoration on it and have been enjoying it ever since.

In the Vegas 100+ degree stop and go traffic I am a little short on cooling capacity in the MGB. I had a couple sheets of the Pantera screen left over and it looks good in the lower valance. This is where the oil cooler is going.
