First new car I bought when I came back to the states was 2003 black Quad coupe.Suicide doors gauges in the middle of the dash,got my picture taken with the sales person(Bunny?).I enjoyed it but thought it would be better if it had more power. In 2005 traded it in for a blue Quad coupe Redline super charged 2 liters.Now that car was a gas to drive.Second and third gears were when the super charger would really do its thing up to the point of redlining then the engine would shut itself down.The first couple of times I thought i blew the engine then I realized what was happening and learned to let off or shift be for it would redline.Kind of ironic name Redline. It was one of the ignition recalls of GM cars.My son was driving it when someone stoped in front of him and when he went to break the car just shut down and he rear ended the car with no brakes and no air bag deployment.He was fine but the car was totaled. I still look regularly for another quad coupe redline. Luckily my wife tells me no.Remembering the ignition recall

If you’ve ever road an early Triumph and wrapped your fingers around the grips you would understand the Triumph.They weren’t made for everyone.The Triumph Bonneville with an extended springer front end with no rake,so it stands high and proud, was a mans bike that is and was the only exception to the Harley. The Stars and Stripes are all wrong for that bike.Ape hangers are a plus and the king and queen also didn’t hurt ,but you could leave the rest of the bike stock and outside of a Harley you had the look and feel of the late 60s early 70s. My first legally ridden bike was a 68 Bonnie as above mentioned.That was in 72 turned 16 And bought it from a friends brother for $600. I’ve had many bikes since but that 650 Bonnie was my favorite until my last bike which was an 87 FXRP that I sold about a year ago.
