[SGC] Unique Bike + Unique Cage, Too ?
« on: May 17, 2016, 03:52:29 PM »
You've already distinguished yourself as a person of exotic taste and unique sensibilities as a Guzzi Owner...does your offbeat style include owning a funky 4-wheel vehicle, as well??

100 extra bonus points for pics of bike and cage together...

I'll start:



2004 Jeep KJ
3.7L V-6
NV3550 5-speed
3" JBA lift
31" Treadright All-Terrains
Full Skidrow skid plates
G2 diff cover
Rola Rack
Rugged Ridge off-road lights

Back in the '80s I had a lot more "play" money, so chose some rather unusual "cages". Land-Rover Series 2A 109, Honda Z600, Bertone X1/9, VW Super Beetle. Then reality/practicality set in because I was car-pooling, resulting in an Audi 5000S and Audi 80 Quattro. When I stopped driving 100 miles a day, I started driving rusty old Mercedes diesels - first a '70 220D and for the last several years a '79 300CD.

I'm looking to replace the 300CD now and am leaning towards an Alfa Romeo (Milano or possibly 164) or Mercedes 190E. The former is quite unique, the latter not so much.  :wink: I'd like something a lot sportier, but with my mother increasingly depending on me for transportation to doctor's appointments and such, I need to stick with something she can get in and out of easily.
