Default Re: According to Japan America is Cluiser Clazy...

Luckily I had no Vinyl top on the 68, my 71 cutlass supreme had the vinyl top and it caused major rear package tray cancer... Just as i was looking for a clean rear clip for parts a lovely 6 months pregnant young lady with no license or insurance ran a red light and tboned me doing about 50 in a 35. Quest for parts was subsequently over. As was my muscle car years.

...not the "Green Death"? That beverage could strip paint off a four poster from 20 yards...



I had a '79 Trans Am (the most bizzare looking year) black, t-top, Oldsmobugger motor with the screaming chicken on the hood. And a big mustache.



My eyebrows started growing together, so I sold it.

Yes, but did the rototiller have a fairing? Saddlebags? Kustom paint?

No, but it vibrated, ran hot, handled poorly and the hand grips were at a bad spot causing soreness in my shoulder blades. Just like a POS cruiser!



...wait, I have one of those two. Damnit, I'm screwed!

That's the one, "Mountain Stale Ranier Ale"



You remember the motorcycle Ranier ad? "Raaaaaa nieeeeerrrrr beeeeeeeeer........."



They filmed that about 3 miles from my house, I take that road home everyday from work. Still looks pretty much the same.



Mine was a red t top. Around Seattle it's a big joke about us So. end boyz with the mullets and Cameros back then. My ol' lady who is a home town Seattle girl still cracks up and gives me sh*t about it whenever we see one.



I still like her though.....

Feh.



Everybody knows that Japanese Nekkidness reached the Pinnacle of Beauty with the '88-'91 NT650 HawkGT.



They quit making it, because they knew that anyone with Taste and Class would have bought theirs by '91, and didn't want to dilute the breed by allowing The Great Unwashed to purchase them as well.
