    My stable of cars (and the two I just sold) S60 / 300M / Insight / P5 (big files!)

    I posted these in the Volvo forum, but there are 5 people here who go there, so....

    whee.

    These are all basically stock, so probably not exciting at all. Sorry for boring everyone.

    Here's some large shots of the protege5 the day I bought it (I think)

    Ignore my mis-sized photos and twin domains... I host different crap on any of 5 domains depending on whatever space I feel like filling at the time. If anyone cares.

    I just got rid of the Protege5 and Insight. if anyone cares I can dig up photos of my Crown Victoria Police Interceptor that I destroyed and recently sold for $300 . Black on black wheels, with blue interior.

    I like that your first mod to the Insight was a 12 pack of Guiness.

    Hey now there may not be many people hitting the Volvo SAAB forum but eventually we will get there. But in the interim if you need Swedish company hit up these sites.

    God, I don't know. Well, I do know. I wanted to capitalize on the spike in gas prices post-Katrina. Demand for used hybrids skyrocketed and I didn't really NEED the car anymore, so I sold it for a nice profit.

    I regret it, though. Not so much for the mileage thing, but it was just such a fantastically badass little car and the 300M is so boring and blah in comparison.

    If I can find a 5spd insight with a ton of miles on it and a new battery pack on the cheap, I'll probably pick it up sometime in the future. No other car has put so many smiles on my face.

    I don't want to cry, but I'll tell you about the interceptor.

    Bought it from a friend 3 years ago, for $4500. 1996 ex highway patrol, all black, great condition, 65,000 miles or so. Used it and the Protege5 as my daily drivers when I commuted from San Diego to Lake Forest. I would sustain 100mph or so on the entire drive, and everyone got the hell out of my way.

    The tranny started going to crap, and eventually died. I parked it at my office and left it there for over a year, just sold it to a fellow employee for $300 so I could stop worrying about it. He dropped about a grand into it and now it's tip top and a fucking beast again.

    4.6L V8!

    Here's the only photos I can find of it, along with the protege5 :







    It was BUTTERY smooth at 110+mph, not that I really took it that fast

    It had a blue interior, and 'stab proof' seats. The entire backseat could be removed in about 3 seconds, since I guess cops always check under the seat for drugs after taking someone in.
