    Pete, the torsion bars are indeed turned way down! Not sure if the previous owner intended it that way or not!

    Makes me wonder if the previous owner dropped the lower control arms for whatever reason and put the torsion bars back in on a different location? Or is the nut at the top of the bolt like they lowered it on purpose? I can see the front wheels are way out of camber. Reminds me of my '85 Nissan pickup in highscool. Good look, bad on tires!

    Willpower, Pete, willpower. No money, no car. Must enjoy cars I have. Don't need too kool '57 Plaza from buddy John. Y get real angry if I buy another car. Must resist temptation of time capsule.
    You have to prove to John your a man Pete. Just buy the freak'n thing already!
    Go outside and enjoy life.

    I heard this car run in person. It starts right up and runs so quiet, I was amazed. You can barely even hear it...standing in front of the engine bay! It's always amazing to see cars like that, as close to a time capsule as you can get.

    Some folks over here had interest in this one, but I haven't heard back from them...

    Roland, as a matter of fact, just last week I got a fax from a fellow in Berlin that had seen photos of another Plaza project car on my website, so I sent him pics of this one. It is looking like Germany will have another Plymouth if everything goes through!

    His payment came through today, the car's new owner lives in Berlin. Are you a long distance from there, Roland?

    Berlin's about 650km away from here, a six hour drive. I live in the south and Berlin
    is "on the other side of the country". A friend of mine took a trip there a few weeks ago...

    I won't wipe that just yet Eddie, to give time for a reply,
    a joke that I'm sure wasn't meant to offend.
    We're very liberal here but there's a few that would take exception to that mate.

    ...... and ********* is in Poland.

    That's Ed-E. Always pizzen folks off.

    I suppose when you're a '57-luvin yankee pervert who's into young boys, 'over the line' is kinda nebulous.


    Just kidding, I'm certain ol' Edward did not mean to hurt anyone's feelings.

    Steve, next time just move the thread to the danger section so we can all throw darts at Eddie.

    I'm not offended but I just didn't get what you were trying to say and it didn't sound funny to me?
    Jokes about a dark place where over one million (!) people lost their lives are still not appropriate
    on both sides of the ocean. So let's forget about it and better do more jokes on couches...

    Germans are like Canadians in some ways, the most offensive phrase to me is "HEY, THE BEER FRIDGE IS EMPTY"
