    I know it's not a car, but I had never seen one of these before I drove by, stopped & bought (7 years ago) this 1967 Jeep Kaiser M715 5/4 ton pickup truck (22k original miles). Approximately 33k of these were built for the U.S. military from 1967-1969.

    This could be a fun thread.

    That's a cool Jeep. Speaking of Jeeps:

    While I was growing up, my father (now age 89) worked for a little ma-and-pa oil company in Ohio. In a recent conversation, he was reminiscing about his first company pickup. He recalled that a Jeep FC was part of the trade-in. Something like this, only (being an oil field truck) not in this condition.





    I haven't seen one of these in person in decades.

    His first pickup, you ask? A 1966 Ford Flareside short bed 2WD 6 cyl 3 speed. A real stripper.

    Default Extra rare Enzo....

    Ferrari Enzo, totaled, rebuilt and sold at RM for $1.75m

    Back in 2006, Bo Stefan Eriksson, who ran failed gaming console business Gizmondo and even raced in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, famously crashed a Ferrari [NYSE:RACE] Enzo on a stretch of the Pacific Coast Highway after losing control of the car in a drag race with the driver of a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. The Enzo, a 2004 model, was split in two and its engine and much of its rear section flung across the road.

    Incredibly, the car wasn’t a complete write-off as someone restored it and has now sold it at an RM Auctions event in Paris for a cool 1,568,000 euros (approximately $1.75 million), which was close to the middle of its pre-auction estimate of between $1.6 million and $2.2 million. The price paid may seem like a lot but it's actually a discount compared to many of the Enzos currently listed for sale. It's not unusual for the cars to be listed at almost double that figure.

    Doubt this one was cool back in its day but when I saw it in a parking lot a couple months ago I couldn't remember the last time I'd seen a Gremlin. I think it's cool.

    Here are a couple older pics from when I lived in Mississippi. Both of these are my buddies, the 78 Ranchero he let me borrow quite a bit and I loved it! The 54 F-100 was a running driving truck (351c and automatic) and this pic is during the chopping of the top. Forgive the grainy pics, I had a crappy camera phone back then LOL.

    He was working on this when I left, he got it finished but I can't seem to find the picture he sent me.

    I miss hanging out with this guy. Always at his shop helping out and trying to learn.

    My older cousin had a '76 Gremlin X with a 304, 4 spd, headers. I was just a 14 year old junior motor head at the time but it was pretty cool to me!
