    Glad you had a safe trip back from AZ. How do you like the new Subi?
    The Subie is a great car, I like it a lot. It replaces a 2011 Suzuki SX4 Crossover as my DD.

    Of the current cars, the Caterham. Overall, my first (of 9) Porsche, a 1965 911.

    Its been 6 years since the last post. I thought I would update my fleet. I now own my 36th and 38th Miatas, a '16 Club with the BBR turbo, suspension and brake upgrades and a whole lot more. The 38th Miata is a 30AE which has about all the mods I would like except for the turbo. Just waiting for BBR to get the ND2 turbo kit for sale.

    My current count of cars owned is now at 371.

    The SBY was sold a couple of years ago after 19 years of ownership. Chocked up a bit as I typed that.

    The Caterham 7 was also sold that summer.

    The '14 WRX was traded in on a '14 Ram 1500. Since then I have owned a '16 Ram 1500 and now own a '19 Ram 1500. My needs and desires seem to change a lot as far as trucks are concerned.

    I still have the Baby 7 and the Crazy Cart.

    Besides the two ND Miatas I have a '17 Shelby GT350 (Yellow of course) and a beater '97 Nissan pickup that I paid too much for on BaT. I also bought an Exocet stalled project on BaT but quickly figured out it wasn't a good car for me so I sold it.

    A true and true car guy. My hat is off to you and I don’t even wear hats! I’m so looking forward to checking out this thread in 2029! I have a thing for yellow Miatas so please treat her right.

    Wow. I do not think I have even sat in 371 cars in my life, let alone own them. Love the 30AE, as well as the GT350, but the mini 7 really stands off!

    Nope, just 60 years of being a gearhead.

    Its been quite awhile since I visited this forum and I thought it was time to at least update my fleet.

    On August 13, 2021 I took delivery of a new C8 Corvette at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY. That date happened to be a Friday the 13th and my 77th birthday. A friend flew out with me and helped drive it home. The day after I got home when I started it for the first time since the trip I noticed the odometer read 1313 miles. Good thing I don't suffer from triskaidekaphobia.

    .C8 shop 7.jpg

    It now has nearly 7,000 miles, the car is not a garage queen. I just used it to fill up two 2.5 gallon gas cans for my mower. They fit nicely in the frunk with a doggie pad under them and a towel to fill the space beside them. It also does weekly grocery runs.

    When my latest Ram 1500 went off lease I bought it from the lease company then sold it to CarMax and cleared $11,300. One benefit of the crazy rise in prices.

    I still have the 30AE.

    I needed something that could carry more than two people and had a decent trunk. I decided on a 2021 Honda Accord Sport. Its a rather bland 4 door until you press the Sport button on the center console. Then it comes alive, the turbo response is all but instantaneous, all 232 HP takes the car to a 14.0 second 1/4 mile according to several magazine tests. The steering and brakes also firm up. It has 19" wheels and larger brakes and a 10 speed torque convertor transmission.
