P.S. There's a guy on my block who took all the "Acura" logos off his car and replaced them with Cadillac logos he bought on eBay, it's only a matter of time before this happens with everything.
I inherited a 1976 Cadillac Fleetwood Eldorado Convertible Crystal Blue with White interior. You think people sneer at a Pentax? Just try parallel parking it between two 5-Beemers. Just try garaging it!

My wife finally made me sell it.

Why would you hide it inside a garage?!

Convertibles need to be parked under a roof when it is raining or snowing. I would have built a bigger garage for it. And the heck with parallel parking anywhere near a BMW.

I'll stick with the one I got. We currently own 5 cars, 6 engines and a parts body.

Yeah, Mrs. Racer is pretty tolerant when it comes to cars and the associated stuff. I have 11 or 12 Datsun Z cars, and a bunch of engines, transmissions, suspension parts and then there is the Camaro, the 48 Ford 8N, a disc harrow, belly mount sickle bar and 3 point mount sickle bar, a back blade and rock rake, 6 foot finish mower, the 48 Adams motor grader, 3 roll around tool chests, a brake lathe, drill press, tire balancer, lift, and a row or two of shelves full of oil, filters and whatever for all our cars and machinery.

My kind of guy!

My husband is an airplane mechanic. Between his work & the car hobby, he doesn't hardly own anything without some kind if grease stain.

I had no intention of winning day 2... Apparently, I talked too much today...

FWIW that car would have been my most expensive hobby if I had kept it.
