            I humbly submit my namesake, my 1969 Ford Falcon. Bought off a preacher in Idaho for $2400, it was originally Wimbledon White over a black vinyl interior. 200 straight six with an automatic and 2.83 rear gears. Dropped a front end suspension rebuild kit from PST, and an SSBC disc brake kit up front. Had a bodyshop I knew in Queens fix the dents and touch up the rust, and paint it Mazda RX-8 Winning Blue Metallic. As chronicled elsewhere, many years later it had a run in with a tree, leading to a new vision.
            Flock of Hawks | '13 Tacoma | '69 Falcon (currently getting reassembled!)
            I've spent most of my money on women, beer, cars and motorcycles. The rest of it I just wasted.

              After the accident, it got stripped down, and a donor car was used to help resurrect it. Drive train is now a 3.7L V6 and 6 speed manual out of a 2011 Mustang, and a Currie 9" Ford rear axle. Suspension is coil overs up front from TCP, new rear leaf springs (I know, I know, weak link, but someday it'll get an IRS cradle) and rack & pinion on a custom crossmember. Full custom interior featuring Miata seats. Lizard skin underneath and inside for heat and sound deadening, and repainted the same Mazda RX-8 Winning Blue Metallic.

                dagus 1983 Porsche 944. I have owned this for 5 years. Lots of work has gone into it, but enjoyable.

                        CindyTurbo’s ‘73 Porsche 911T , aka “KERMIT”
                        This my spouse’s toy ... completely restored about 12 years ago down to bare metal. This is Kelly Green, a very rare color, especially for a Targa model. It is my understanding that only 50 units were made in this configuration worldwide. Of all the Porsche meets that I’ve attended, I have never seen another one ... exception being the equally rare 911 RS coupe model. The restoration was true to factory build specifications and it was awarded a Certificate of Authenticity, (original VIN engine and trans serial numbers; trim and carpeting colors and materials).

                        But before I go further ... I’m confessing to changing the stock steering wheel for the more appealing one shown in these pics ... as of yesterday. It was a Christmas Gift to CindyTurbo from me, and it included the installation.

                              I'll throw mine in. It's a 1985 GMC Jimmy K5 Money Pit. I'm doing a LS swap (hoping for around 400 NA horsepower), 4L80E transmission with one ton axles and other fun stuff as I collect it. Instead of paint I'm going with silver Monster Liner and Black monster liner on the removable part of the top and then going to murder out the trim work and basically anything on the outside that used to be chrome or brite aluminum is going to be blacked out with powder coat or Cerakote.

                              I'll just post a couple of photos in it's current beat up and ugly state and link the album since its a constant (albeit temporarily paused) work in progress:

                              It currently has slider windows in it for now and they are going to get replaced by solid tinted windows.


                              ​​

                              Old school stamped Warn winch bumper up front. I tossed the bent end pieces and will build off the middle section (3/8 inch plate so it's sturdy) and the rear bumper is getting replaced by a self built unit that will ensure the back and front look like they were designed in unison and probably incorporate a tire holder as well as a built in receiver and gas tank shield.

                              ​​

                              LS??? Yes Please!! Just a 5.3 for now, nothing too wild but it is going to get a cam and tune so it should net around 400 at the crank and get about 15 mpg or more average, which will be about 240 more than it was ever capable of from the factory and 5 mpg better than it probably every got with the stock 305 boat anchor.



                              More in the linked album here if you care to look:
