    Hello Everyone,

    I am just an old fashioned, fun loving, somewhat nostalgic, plain old American :lol:

    Pacer. A friend of mine got one because it would hold his telescope.

    BTW, welcome Noobie.

    Here's some music for your enjoyment:

    Welcome aboard, make sure your shots are up to date and your passport has Visas for everywhere. Not sure anymore who bites and who has had their shots and can't promise where this board could lead you to. But it's a fun place most times.

    I think the next model they had in mind before going out of business (sadly) was the Gargoyle. They had an affinity for ugliness.

    Speaking of older, 'uglier' cars, I'd give my left one for a mint condition Studebaker Avanti.

    The Avanti Website

    Ah, yes! Studebaker! The car that while sittin' still and viewed from the side, couldn't be determined to be goin' one way or the other.

    Hey there! I'm new too. I'm somewhat nostalgiac. I like the 1950s aesthetic and culture but I recognize that some parts of our legacy are not worth embracing but transcending.
