Vehicle Updates

Right, so the Jimmy is for sale (see below), and I’ve bought a 1992 BMW 325i 4dr 5sp that’s in Boston. I’m flying up Monday to pick up the car and drive it 1,250 miles back home by way of Buffalo where I’m meeting Ed Saki to pick up some parts for my EX500. Hopefully I’ll have that bike built back up in the next month or two.

In other good news, I got to pick up the Jag from the shop today. It’s a 1986 Jaguar XJ6 sedan. New transmission seems to shift good; the engine is running a bit rough since it has sat idle for over a year now. It needs a new battery, master cylinder, and some work on the steering, which I think is far too loose. At any rate, I’m glad to have it back, and look forward to getting it back on the road.

Clint’s old car; probably the fastest automobile I’ve ever ridden in. His was faster, I think, with some mods.

I note their omission of trucks and SUVs. I think my 4Runner’s 0-60 time was measured in minutes, not seconds.
