Cars and Airplanes


This is a 1980 Triumph TR8 that I restored for myself a few years ago when I got all nostalgic about the good ol days… Right after I got out of college and got a job, I bought a British Racing Green TR8 because it was the coolest car out at the time and I lived in Florida and “had” to have a convertible. It was actually a very dependable car (compared to my Jaguar V-12 E-Type) and served me well until I bought my Ferrari 308 GT4…

Here are a couple of my favorite cars- the 71 Jaguar V-12 E-Type and a 1975 Ferrari 308GT4 Dino. Oh, how I wish I still had these cars!

A few years ago, I restored a couple old Mustangs- 1965 and 1966 GT Coupes. Very cool cars, but not all that fun as everyday drivers since the GT’s didn’t have power steering and most were 3 speed manuals with very stiff clutches. But they sure did look good!

 

This car is painted back it’s original Ivy Green with Parchment interior. The Style Steel Wheels looked awesome on this car. 289 CI engine with a 3 speed manual.

This is a RANS S10 that I helped a friend rebuild. I had to paint the wings outside since my booth wasn’t big enough. They still came out perfect since we waited for the ideal day to paint… Great looking airplane-
