    No, not a Mitsuoka. I had forgotten about that company. I wonder how many Mitsuokas have made it to the US? They have made some pretty interesting cars.

    Only convertible I ever owned was an 88 Chrysler LeBaron convertible that I bought myself as a retirement [present in 2002. It got rear-ended just a few weeks after I bought it. Drove it for a few months and sold it. Like this one.

    How was that LeBaron? I have always liked the way it looks. I am a Chrysler convertible fan, even though I know that most "car guys" would probably laugh at the idea. I have owned two Sebring convertibles (1998 and 2002), and I think that Chrysler did a great job building an affordable stylish top down cruiser that is an ideal Florida car. My Crossfire, which is really a Mercedes, has been a great car as well.

    My son's buddy from school bought an MGB when he was just out of high school. I told him, you'll be sorry. He did the push, push, push dance step the MG owners know so well for a couple of years. One day he came up to the house driving a nice little Japanese import, and said, you know you were right about the MG. I had a buddy that had an A, it didn't have to have anything wrong with it not to run! We pushed that thing about as far as we drove it. It was a hoot going down the road (when) it would run though.

    My first car was a 66 Mustang convertible, purchased in 1974, which was actually a rusted-through parts car that ran. It cost me $50, I drove it for one summer, and sold it for $50. Best deal ever! The wife's current ride: P3233206r.JPG

    truer words were never spoken for most of these cars posted..

    My love started as a teenager working for my dad at his car lot...I got to use a 66 Sunbeam Tiger for a summer ..I'd hide it in the back of the lot so it didn't get sold..

    67 in the pic and not the one I had

    when I could afford it I bought a 69 MGB that I spent more time working on than driving ..then a 60 Hillman Minx we modified to 4 on the floor ...a 70 510 Datsun then onto a 76 TR6 then got married and had a kid ...
    ....since I retired the bug returned and had to get back into the fun stuff ...97 Boxster with 64 thousand miles popped up and I'm having lots of fun driving this little 5 speed....

    Do you mean the location, or the car? If you're talking about the Porsche recommendation, I'd still take the Pantera because it's different. I like the idea of a Ford V8 in a foreign sports car, like the Cobra, Sunbeam Tiger, Detomaso Pantera, etc. American reliability with exclusivity that pretty much guarantees that you will never see another one on the road. And you can buy a good one for less than a comparable age 911.

    Never mind the car - is that your house?

    No, it isn't ours. It was a house that my wife and I had been watching for years, waiting for it to come on the market. The exterior was definitely our style, and when it was listed we rushed to see it. Unfortunately, the interior was a major disappointment, with a horrible floor plan and other issues that could not be fixed, like an indoor swimming pool on the north side of the house, which made the interior living space very dark. I came to the conclusion that if the house had been built on the opposite side of the street, it would have been 1000% better. The architect failed badly.
