.. or 4 u Dr. Strangelove fans ... how I stopped worrying and learned to love fast skis lol....

So I wuz bored over this summer and picked up a great '59 Olds Super 88 4-dr with a 394 cu " engine .... here it is off of ebay:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayIS...DME:B:EOAB:US:6

It's pink and white and grey ... great condition and only 80K miles!!!!

Ok so I got it and did a little engine work ... the 394 puts out 315 hp and over 400 ft/lbs of torque.. and I LOVE it!!!!

I have come to realize that I LOVE fast/big stuff .. explains my love of fast super-G turns and maximum fun ... gee this is a pattern!

So:

Carving : Volkl 6 starts (161 @ 140 lbs)
Everything else: Dynastar Inspired by Nobis (178 @ 140 lbs)
4 the race course: Rossi 9x Pro (184 @ 140 lbs)

OOOHHH, cars, fast cars, i've had a few, but never a BIG pink one like that. First one was a 1970 240Z, early model, 89 MPH in third gear, man the cops loved this one . Nother was datsun 810 4 door in dog sh%t brown, same drivetrain as 240z but the cops never notice. Fastest had to be wife's 91 Taurus SHO. This thing would beat a corvette automatic in stop light races. 94 SHO is the one i wish she/we still had but sonny decided he wanted to be right where this tractor trailer was. Insurance co paid that one off, boy learns big lesson (ended up driving an 86 shadow ).

Stable now limited to taurus wagon and an explorer, boring. Quiver limited to Volkl V3...great hold on ice and "hard" snow though.

Crush, how does g/f cope with your "fast/big stuff"?

Looking over pictures of Super 88, man that boat looks in great condition, better than the description on ebay?
So, Crush, you gonna enjoy it or restore it?
