    In high school a buddy had a POS subaru wagon. We rolled that thing so many times! There wasn't one straight piece of sheet metal on it when we got done! Funny thing was, we took that thing places the heeps couldn't go /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
    Man, we had WAY too much fun in that thing!

    had a '74 celica gt. bored out, it would get third gear scratch all day long.
    had an army shovel and a cheapie floor jack in the trunk, and a spare on the roof. a couple pieces of wood with slats nailed to them for traction outta sand, and we had one mean urban assalut vehicle. we would find housing developments that had streets cut in the dirt, but not paved yet, and use 'em like rally courses. if we went wide, we just kinda ran it up onto the dirt "curb".
    i've got some pictures somewhere of that bad boy about five feet in the air, heading higher. we found a cool jump, and just kept getting braver and braver.......

    best four hundred bucks i ever spent.

    Going back to the late 70s early 80s here...but dad had this thrasher Volvo he drove during the winter. We did so much stupid stuff in that ole POS. Running the feilds in the snow, jumping snow banks, ETC. This was around the time "The Dukes of Hazzard" was big. They had the General Lee, we had the General WHEEEEEE! LOL! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Cool! I had a 73 celi"baja" We used to TRASH that poor car. It never ever ever quit. I sold it for $100 less than I bought it.
