[personal] Things that roll for $200

Today my hair stylist asked if I wanted his racing rig. It's a street-legal 1965 Volvo 122 wagon with a bored out 2 litre engine and twin SU carbs in race tune. He claims it goes "faster than stink." Talk about your Q-ships... I'm sorely tempted, especially since his asking price is "give it a good home."

On the other hand, do I really need a car that's almost as old as I am? I mean, an old truck for dump runs and helping friends move is one thing. The Swedish Meatball From Hell is something else entirely.

In other news1, I took a few reference photos of a string of double decker passenger rail cars currently sitting on a siding near Nuevo Rancho Lake. Will upload and post at the next opportunity.

1. Admittedly, news of interest largely to garyomaha and kevin_standlee. Here at this blog the management believes in market segmentation.
