My cars are like bunny-rabbits....my Dub family just keeps growing.

Most of you already know about how I came about the purchase of Miss Roxy, so I'll save my words for now, and will instead link to the relevent threads later on.

Roxy is a 1991 Etienne Aigner Edition, purchased for a song of $500, with the help of my dear friend, and the one we all know as, Matt.

There were only 399 of this color made for the American market, so I guess it's rather rare.
Mod or stock... That is the $3 question...

Here is the newest addition to my humble cabby family: (click thumbnails to enlarge pics)



And my new 1992 VW Cabriolet:
(I'm too embarassed to say what I paid for this one. heh.)


Some more pics: (click to enlarge)


The Vision:

The Inspiration:

More to come...

The Montana Cabby Farm is really taking shape


But it won't be an official Montana Car Farm, until I have several rusted out cabs that don't run.

Unfortunately, mine all run, thus disqualifying me from Montana Car Farm status.

Wait...that doesn't really make me sad.

Seriously....haven't you run out of room in your driveway yet? LOL
I think your concept needs a little tweaking to be a proper bandit......I'd get an early Westmoreland grille (the one that didn't use the wraparound marker lights) and go squares on the front. Gold pinstripe over the wheelwells and a screaming bunny on the hood would cap it off nicely....hehehehehe.

Re: (speedtek40)

Like I said over there --> I actually think it looks hot...but having already purchased the lights, and grille, (as well as painted the trim, etc.) I'm sort of committed to my original plan...
But yeah...it actually looks really good! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Is this 4 Cabbys now? I can't keep up with you. I think you now qualify as an "Official Cabriolet Collector". Anything over three qualifies as a collection!

Next you'll have to purchase a big 18 wheeler and transporter to haul them to the car shows!
Good luck with ALL of them http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

You're not in the waiting users queue.

Register again, and I'll approve it ASAP.

Oh, and I think Lucille is about the best name for a Cabby ever.

did you just buy that cabby in NY?
I think I saw it posted locally.....
no.... you didn't drive this far for a car.

Yep....I sho' 'nuff did.

However, it was actually purchased in Maryland. I just drove to Staten Island to visit a friend before heading home 2,500 miles.

Nope...this is Bandit #2.

And no...can't have 'em.

But I'd be happy to spray yours for you, if you wanna send them to me.

The tails I purchased from the lovely Mister FLuxwagen.

Once more, I have an objection.
You should clarify that the car was purchased in the People's Republic of Perryville, in the state of Maryland.

Mod or stock? If the mechanical frustrations didn't push you over the mod edge (out of revenge), I'll bet the first time you're branded by one of those little "A"s on the seats, you will be.
