Default I'll be last...

This morning before breakfast - wife Barbara and Blitz the Aussie. Barb sitting on her 5.5hp Powersport mini, her 99' 4.6 HSE, my 95' 993 'fixer-upper' and 99 4.0 SE 'trash hauler'. (She just sold her black 95' Impalla SS which was seriously fast car with only a Flowmaster exhaust + K&N & minor brake upgrade;^)
We are both retired Naval Officers, with masters degrees and now bored dinks. She works for missile defense agency, I work for office of sec def. I shoot competitive clay targets - she rides her horse. And so on...this is a great forum

Well...I got this little 2.8hp mini doodle and typical of american hot rodders, just had to have more engine. Yanked the the 2.8 and installed a 5.5HP tecumseh Powersport + Comet automatic clutch system. Very easy to ride and is perfect to putt around our 2 mile private road. It's funny to watch her smile when she rides it - I'm convinced it's the vibration of the stupid thing:^) I just bought a complete vintage Tote Gote frame - am taking it down to parade rest and will have it beaded and powdercoated in the same color green that I recall the one we lucky to share as kids.

But I've got this 993 fixxer-upper that is taking a lot of my 'spare'time lately!

BTW: I am a telecaster guitar freak if anybody out there wants to unload one...

Well, hmm, seems like you're spending a lot of time and energy on something that can top, what, 24MPH? But maybe I'm just biased-

Nice MV Coleman. Any new shots of your car? Also curious how your weight loss regimen is going and what parts you are targeting??

Mostly targeting that "hard to get" spot around my midriff, I run, I bike, I eat well, still that damn "spare tire" is almost impossible to lose!

Marlon..."retired" means you two did 20+....gotta hand it to you, because there was no way I could've stayed. Detested going to sea! Might have had something to do with the carrier I was on (USS Ranger), but it was 6 and out for me (Master-At-Arms, NAS Miramar). Nice photo!

Dan - ahoy matey! Yes - between us we have about 47+ years in the nav! NAS Miramar had a pretty good bar as I recall. My main sea tour consisted of 2 yrs aboard USS Tarawa - rest of the time flying these (and survived) :
