AAAAAAHHHH what you know about the Typhoon and Syclone!!!

MAN i saw a Typhoon the other day, dude knew what he had too! Had the HIDs in it, CLEAN Stock wheels and everything! It was black too!

He rode by some girls but they didn't even give him a second look :rofl: Goes with the territory i guess.
What's not to know about the truck that effectively started the fast truck competitions of the 90s? That truck is clean, and fast. Forget hauling payload, those were built to haul @ss! That 0-60 time I quoted? That's in the rain. 'Nuf said.

A few throwbacks I have not seen in a while. I have owned all of these at one time
'71 T-bird with 429 thunderjet engine. For a big boat it hauled a$$ (ina straight line)

'78 T-bird- first car I ever owned.

'86 Omni GLH. I had an '84 non-turbo and it was still fast. A friend of mine had the GLH-S shelby version with turbo intercooler. Many might laugh at a red light, but would not be laughing for long when they saw this go cart leave them behind.

'72 Gran Torino Sport- I owned one of these fom '88 until 2002. Should have kept it I suppose. 351C engine was awesome

Yes- the GLH stood for 'Goes Like Hell'. And so it did! It handled like mad too. I remember it outperformed the Corvette in that era in the slalom.

Several of my cars that are really rarely seen these days, in order of appearance:

1973 Olds Vista Cruiser (my first car, had a factory sun roof, paid $35 for the car:


1975 Buick Electra 225, free from a neighbor, 455 cubic inch beast, 8MPG, same color and wheels, 2 door as well, but mine had 1/2 vinyl top:


1978 Honda Civic CVCC, 1500, real wood steering wheel and shift knob, same color and all:


1982 Olds Cutlass Ciera, originally diesel, built 2.8 Chevy V6 and converted, first transverse front wheel drive diesel-to-gas conversion in Cleveland, OH:


Now, THIS was the start of an era for me, an era for Honda, and a car you really don't see often anymore... the 1982 Honda Prelude:


Then, my best car (and still missed) EVER, and again, not seen often in the midwest, my 1988 Honda Prelude Si:


5 years later, I kept that and bought one of these, only to sell it 3 months ago, my 1997 Honda Prelude (and again, not often seen in these parts):


(and I just noticed that this guy's car above, has the wheels on the wrong way. These are the wheels for the LEFT side)

The rest, just Legend history. :)

Gotta love that Electra! I knew a guy in highschool who had a '77. You could fit the '78 civic in the trunk of that Electra. A friend of my father's had a '75 Pontiac Grandville coupe with a 455 in it, factory dual exhaust. I was a teenager at the time and really wanted to get that car..unfortunately he traded it in.
