    That's a cool car. They were one of the very small handmade marks from England, even more rare than the TVR. I got to drive a Mantula at Road Atlanta in '91 at an Elva reunion weekend. If you ever get the chance to drive one of the little British roadsters, take it. Those light little roadsters are a totally different driving experience than what we're used to w/ our over bloated muscle cars.

    Lets play guess the total weight.

    How heavy is this?

    [​IMG]


    85,000 lbs?

    95,000 lbs?

    Nope, 165,900. With a nice $20,200 ticket.

    I just saw that last night, freakin nuts. They'd have gotten away with it if the tires held.
    The load is scrap steel...he blew out tires, and while lifting it to change them (including calling in another truck to lift it), the trailer frame started to buckle.

    Spent the day at horsetooth reservoir learning how to shrink wrap boats. This was the highlight of my day.

    Not sure how big they are but yes the verados are supercharged. And yeah they're expensive! Probably close to $80k in motors!

    70 MPH party barge? Why not?

    I had to go pick up a boat of ours for work that had been at Quiller's for almost 3 months now, I got there and the lady couldn't tell me where it was, and I couldn't picture the thing, so I had to look at 7 or 8 boats before I found one with a DNR property tag.

    Been driving this fine piece of equipment more lately.

    [​IMG]

    - 211,XXX miles.
    - Three unidentifiable squeaks and/or squeals, one of which sounds quite alot like a main bearing.
    - A 4L80 that refuses to go into overdrive.
    - A driver's seat totally devoid of foam/cushioning.
    - A cluster that only has a functioning tach, speedo, and volt meter.

    And I'd take it any day over one of those damn F150's.
