About “The Beast”

Bought it when i was 15 with money from odd jobs here and there, almost 2 years later still got her, referred to as The Beast. Bought for $3000 have almost $8,000 into her since. Doing a partial restoration at my school(http://www.78ta.com/smf/index.php?topic=18685.0)
Also a member of TAC, Allgen, FBN and Vancouver Fbody

Got a full time job in a restaurant shortly after buying her, been there for about a year and half now as well working full time

About “Lula”

I was tired of driving the P.O.S. Taurus that my folks gave me as a "Hand Me Down" (The dealer wouldn't give them squat for it in trade!), so I went out looking for something that fit my personality better but wouldn't drink too much gas. Turns out she looks just like a car driven by a character in one of my favorite series of mystery novels, so I named the car after her.

Chevy 350 out of a 1975 Chevy C10 Pick,Dont know what its putting out but Front Discs have been upgraded....got it to 140 easy. 60,000km on it.

With a v6 and automatic, she's no speed demon, but she's sporty and comfortable. She's just hard to get in and out of gracefully when I'm wearing a dress!
