Sold this about a month ago. Had a lot of fun offroading and hitting trails. Some great ones in TN. Just not enough time though.

Lot of performance mods to this one (including some you can't see, like a clutch), and appearance mods, like the powder coating.

commonly referred to as UTV (Utility Terrain Vehilce) as a generic name, also side-by-side ... manufacturers names vary, i.e. Kawasaki Mule, Polaris Ranger, Kubota RTV ... then there are sportier versions with better suspension, more speed, etc. I found my RTV at a heavy equipment auction by pure accident, and bought it to re-sell ... after getting it home and started using it around the house, the ranch, my deer lease, etc., I have no intention of selling. It's a great workhorse that we use in tighter spots that my pickup or most of my tractors won't fit in/under. My wife is known for naming all our vehicles to keep them all straight in her head, this one is named "Mater" after the tow truck Tow-Mater" from "Cars" that Larry the cable guy narrates

VIN as a 2009 Pontiac G8. Has the entire Holden SS conversion. The only place you can still find a Pontiac symbol on the car is at start up when the radio comes on it flashes for a moment. Haven't had time to do the update to make it flash the Holden lion at start up.

Holden SS was exported to the Us under the Pontiac brand....... when the GFC hit, apparantly the US canned the deal........... bad move!! the SS is a good contender for the muscle tag......... it has all the grunt and more of a 6lt V8......

The SS is built by Holden and comes ex factory as you see it.......

http://www.holden.com.au/cars/commodore/sedan-range/ss

We (Australia) then have a specialist company who takes the "standard" Holden from GM and transforms it........ and this is how they end up and they ARE the muscle car.....

are those 10G batches? Its hard to tell from the pictures.

In lamens terms its the same thing. The SS is comparable to my car. The HSV is a different story.

The 6 liter under my hood with headers and a little bit of tuning run mid 300hp to the wheels. A new cam and tuning runs 420+. A lot of serious American Muscle to be had with that GM engine!!!

EXACTLY the same car....... badges changed to a Pontiac
funny actually as a lot of SS owners in Australia change the Holden "Lion" badges to the Chevrolet badges.........

Need some "Holden Lion" gear - yell out if you are having difficulties......

Ford no longer produce a V8 in its standard line up so it only leaves GM.......... the current version of the Commodore SS which was only released a couple of weeks ago will cease production in a couple of years to be replaced by "an imported" GM vehicle yet to be disclosed but all reports indicate the V8 is to be shelved.

I for one understand the tractors. I wish I had a photo of it, I'm sure my gma. But when I was 13 I bought a 1913 Alice Chalmers and restored it with my dad. We ended up painting it tittie pink. It won a couple small shows. We also rebuilt Maytag washing machine engines. From around 1915.

Man those were fun days, all gone and never again.

The Wolf range is super craveworthy!

When we redid the kitchen, I wanted to go gas, but the way our attic is setup, we couldn't drop a line from the furnace. Running it from the fireplace was the only option and I wasn't going to pay $2,000 to have a line run all the way around the house.

10 gallon batches with 14+ gallon boils depending on the length of the boil. 20 gallon kettles (except 15g HLT) and two 15 gallon fermenters (typically only one is in service, but it's nice to have a backup when doing lagers).

I did have a natural gas line run to the corner of the garage. No more propane for me. Blichmann controllers keep mash and hlt within 0.5 degrees.

I flew from age 14 to 18. Lots of fun and challenges. Got to expensive renting and I had school expenses. So I hung it up. I still bang around on the simulator from time to time. My dad had 10,000+ private pilot hours on everything from Twin Bonanzas/Excalibur and a Jet Commander 1121. That jet was so Goldfinger cool back in the day.

Let me just say as someone who has lowered more vehicles than I can count in my lifetime: That is one of the coolest looking planes I have seen on the ground. Not "back in the day" cool, just cool.

Is there really no suspension for a hard landing, or does it have bags or height adjust from the hydros?

Would love to fly a jet someday. I have been able to get a ton of endorsements in different type and make aircraft. Which is what makes flying fun. I agree that renting can be a little costly but ownership is anything but costly. I just can't see buying a car for 100k when I could do 200knots at that price with 8 people anywhere in the country. Can't do that in a car. I'll surely own many more planes before I get any nice cars.

East you should look into fractional ownership. It's a lot cheaper.

I would give up my MasterCraft long before I could give up flying. That's the truth.

Is there really no suspension for a hard landing, or does it have bags or height adjust from the hydros?

There is "suspension" on the rear landing gear. In this plane you can see the gear is attached at the wing which is strange and gives it that lowered look. I put suspension in quotes because it's not like you would think. Lets just say it's more of a limiter of stress. The front wheel uses a pogo type suspension as well. Again, it's really just for added comfort as almost any harder landing will push them to the limit possibly causing damage or further distress and deterioration. A smooth landing is preferred in all aircraft. Both planes I have owned only had some sort of suspension on the front wheels. It's still landing an 1800# aircraft without any suspension as the back wheels hit first and I can make it so smooth you will still think your flying. (On a good day) so suspension isn't necessary on any aircraft. It just adds to the margin of error. If that makes any sense.

Yeah, but it's more fun to bounce down the runway, isn't it? Especially in a crosswind. :D

I used to have a 172 years ago, but eventually got bored with it and decided to spend my money on other things -- like boats. (The 172 was cool, but there was no Pussy Galore.) When my skiing days end, I may take it up again. The next plane I own will have to go at least 150 kts. So, either a Mooney or experimental... or if I hit the Powerball, a Bonanza, KingAir or Cirrus.

It does make sense and when I searched for more images of that aircraft they don't look quite as low--must be the shadows in that pic. Just looked like if there was much upward wheel travel on a landing the belly would hit the ground. Thought maybe it had height adjust for loading and unloading like a coach bus but I get it now. I've built a few vehicles with "highly progressive" rate springs and/or jounce stops as "suspension". i.e. if you need it to move a bit it will just to save your backbone or equipment.

Thanks for the explanation.

Oh it's fun alright. Bounce right over and off the runway. I've had a few embarrassing go arounds. No one ever hounds you for it. They always say you did the right thing.

There has got to be some old navy pilots or something that have some cool photos

What is the motor rated at with those nice turbos?

With that twin turbo you should be well above 600HP ;)

A small and a large one, or identical turbos? They look identical...

Nicely done btw, with that little room to put it...

I'm not leaning on it that hard right now, only about 6psi of boost. But that's still good for about 600hp at the wheels. That translated to a little over 670hp at the flywheel. I may turn it up more if I get bored.

The turbos are part of an APS kit. They are both identical GT3076R ball bearing water cooled turbos, good for ~1000hp in case I decide to put a built engine under them. There is zero lag with 6.2L of engine pushing them. Remember that a completely stock LS3 Corvette can already smoke the tires. The turbos just make it easy to keep on smoking them almost as long as you want to. Careful throttle control is key. ;)

Let me just say as someone who has lowered more vehicles than I can count in my lifetime: That is one of the coolest looking planes I have seen on the ground. Not "back in the day" cool, just cool.

I don't recall. I was pretty young when he was still flying it. I do remember that he was pretty good at greasing landings. Always very smooth.

Would love to fly a jet someday. I have been able to get a ton of endorsements in different type and make aircraft. Which is what makes flying fun. I agree that renting can be a little costly but ownership is anything but costly. I just can't see buying a car for 100k when I could do 200knots at that price with 8 people anywhere in the country. Can't do that in a car. I'll surely own many more planes before I get any nice cars.

Right now I have the piper only to advance my license and become an IFR pilot.

I know it is fun, but I haven't had the time to put into doing it right for some time now. I decided long ago that I did not want to be just a pretty good pilot (that's dangerous). And, to be a really good pilot, I would have to put in more time than I am able to put in.

I remember its being pretty low looking. I have a picture at home of the family standing in front of it on the tarmac. His company had two of them over the years. The later generation of 1121 might have been a little different. It was a very unique looking plane. I seem to recall it being the first "business jet."

Here's another one. Looks pretty low, too.

So true. You need to fly at least twice a week. Even if it's only around the pattern.
I want to buy a business jet one day. Problem is I'd have to be the one flying it. And that's just too John Travolta for me

I don't like the price or availability of the BGE charcoal mainly. I can grab the stuff from Lowe's at better hours and cheaper price than BGE. I prefer Ozark. Its the stuff. me and a buddy split a pallet (bought direct from the factory) about a yr ago and I ran out recently. Least smoke, best flavor, longest lasting... good stuff. But until we get another order i'll be with the cheap stuff from Lowe's.

Right, when I was 17 I had an 88 XJ with the good Dana axles. I had so many dreams. Ended up with a 3" rancho lift and blew up the trans running it through the river. Sold the axles and tires and scrapped the jeep

I like how much it flexes, reminds me of a Cadillac. Corners like one too. That long wheel base makes navigating sidewalk cracks a bear, better in the street. May also be that my back foot doesn't have much leverage to angle the board for turns. It's great for down hill and is stable enough that I'm comfortable carrying my 2yo in a hiking backpack to and from the neighborhood pool. I'm loving the ebay running gear for $35. Not as nice as the gullwings I wanted but I don't have to worry about my kids thrashing it either. I do need some deck traction.

Tell me about it. My now-seven-year-old would stop talking about wanting to skateboard when he was 4. We got him one when he was 5 with the understanding that if he was ever seen riding without a helmet, daddy would have another skateboard. I, then, told my wife that "if he gets one, I'm getting one.

I got the first longboard and he got a street board. That Christmas, he got a mini longboard. It's amazing watching him bomb hills.

I love it! I've been asking for a longboard for a few years. Since that never happened, I converted this old ski my wife found in a dumpster. Since I upgraded and have been riding the past few weeks, all of my kids have a renewed interest in the shared skateboard for the kids. BTW, in addition to this ski, there was a Maheraja slalom ski (67", not like that barge of a ski you've got) that I sold for about $120. If it would have been wood, I'd have kept it.

My guess is carb ice and he got too low, aimed it to let the wings take the impact on both houses. I think he did the best he could considering.

That's too bad. I flew on an Aero Commander in the late 80s. Very similar shape. I think there were quite a few 1121 accidents late in its service life as well.

We lost a member of our ski club last month. He lost an engine on his Piper PA-30 taking off out of Amarillo and was unable to recover. Very sad situation. He had been flying for years. Heck of a guy and wonderful family. We will miss him a lot.
