Seems a lot of collectors/historians are also into other "big boys toys", these are a couple that I really enjoy

ERA cobra "under wraps" 66 Cobra, ERA replica on the trailer & "wrapped" as it arrived home
Cobra interior all original cockpit layout, turn signal on the right, ignition on the left
2000 Indian Chief Indian Chief as delivered, 88ci S&S motor. Many "glitches" originally but once they were worked out it's a fabulous scoot
Indian w/solo seat actually only removed the pillion pad
Indian "naked" changed the tires & did some other work, just thought it looked funny w/o that big rear fender
1967 RPO L88 Corvette Had this in 1973! was an original RPO L88 car, had been used as a race car. Car had a 1 piece tilt nose. Completely rebuilt it, didn't run when I got it, motor was shot (& wasn't the original anyway). This is a finished pic, see the pic w/the hood up, the day it was dropped off.
1967 Vette left side Rebuilt it w/an open chamber 454, side pipes, late model Corvette seats, suspension, brakes were all upgraded, had both tops.
1967 Vette off the truck Here's a pic w/the hood open, parked in my station lot, this is about an hour after the truck dropped it off!
1972 Moto Guzzi V7 sport Rare bird, one of about 200 V7 sports that came into the US w/a front drum brake, which was interesting as it was a 4 shoe brake!
1965 Sportster XLCH This Sport was a 65, magneto, kick start, stroked to 72", S&S carb, front end cut down 2", bike ran real well but strangely parts kept vibrating off! &, it was a b.... to start!
1965 XLCH other side
1965 Chev Nova Another "old time" race car, here it's in the station getting a "heart transplant", put in a 388" small block, 5.13 rear, was a fun car!
1970 Boss 302 Mustang One I'd like to have back!, real deal, 1970 Boss 302!, orange, black stripes, black interior, tunnel port 302 heads, interesting FoMoCo behind it too, ex State Police Mercurey, Marauder I think it was, had a big block (don't remember which!) dual carb motor!
74 Scarab Z, small block Chev conversion Here's a 74 Datsun Scarab 260Z, these were done w/a small block Chev & a host of suspension/brake mods. Interesting cars as they were done in the same vein as Carroll Shelby did w/the Cobras! I've had this car since 1980 & it's been sitting almost the last 8 years, these pics were taken 5-11-06 the day after I finally got it home & in the garage & getting ready to start on it's restoration.
Scarab Z, front view I really like the way these look! & these cars are fast! they also handle extremely well, the entire unibody is tied in by steel tube, a complete roll bar/brace in the cockpit & a triangular front cowl brace. It originally had a 4 speed BW trans but it was replaced w/a T5 speed.
Scarab Z valve cover The car came w/these valve covers & the original headers also had Scarab on them, unfortunately the headers (& floor pans) were rusted thru when I got the car in 80 & were replaced but the valve covers are still on the car. Hopefully I'll be adding more info & pics on this car as work progresses, still unsure as to restore it as it was when I got it or just go from here & do it up to todays standards!
