Welcome to the fun and friendly "Pinside Car Club" a place where you can show and talk about rides including pin-haulers.

#2 1 year ago

My Pinhauler is a 2016 Honda Odyssey.
Wife Drives a 2016 Nissan Murano.

My "ride" is a 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse GST Spyder. Unmolested and while it has no real value to anyone other than me I keep it nice.

2016 Scion FR-S release series 2.0. #122 of 1000. Pinhauler is a 1994 Econoline conversion van that I would probably trade for a decent Gottlieb EM

I purchased a new Subaru WRX last year and it is the funnest car I have ever owned. With the all-wheel drive and turbo it is a blast to drive. It is like it is on rails when it turns a corner, I cant seem to get it to slide or wobble even at high speeds. The six speed manual is an absolute must for this car. The Subaru WRX is also a great family car and it fits my kids well in the back seats. I have enjoyed this car so much that I have decided to upgrade to the STI version. I currently have one on order from the Subaru factory in Japan that is being built with some extra performance goodies. For those of you that have driven a Subaru-there is something about them that makes them special and usually turns people into Subaru lovers. I remember growing up my family had a Subaru Brat, that car was indestructible and a blast to drive.

I also am a big Toyota guy- I have a new Tundra, and 4Runner that I use for hauling pins.

Get the stock wheel back on the Riv, anyone can slap a set of aftermarket rims on. The original wheels are so cool.

My 6-71 blown rat rod. I have never hauled a pin in it.

#12 1 year ago

Have a 2013 Ford Flex as our family hauler. Best road trip vehicle ever and also an excellent pin hauler. I also have an 08 Ranger pick up for arcade/pinball hauls.

Just picked up a 2012 Nissan Leaf all electric vehicle that my wife commutes in. Used Leafs are so freaking cheap right now that I finally pulled the trigger. Best decision I've ever made...EVs are the future and we haven't filled up our other cars in a month! (I can ride a bike to work). I'm not a greenie but I def am enjoying not spending as much gas money!

That is awesome!

It is interesting, ever since 2009 it seems like rust has replaced red with custom rod builders. I love the nostalgic look, it gives the rat rods a more aggressive feel. I have seen some recent builders building "derelicts" where they use old imperfect rides that are then customized with modern technology creating the ultimate sleeper car. I would love to be at a stop light in a derelict and blow the doors off a new sports car.

My pinhauler is a 1996 Ford Ranger STX I bought brand new and that I'll never part way with...

I currently own a 2014 white Range Rover Evoque and a 2015 silver MB C36 AMG.

My wife drives a 2016 Jeep Renegade.

I love my antique cars - but sadly because of my children's driving records I have been dropped by my insurance company - so here I am sitting with 20 plus antiques. so if anybody is looking I started selling them. I have sold a few already - this really hurts and it sucks - you might want to remind your kids that their actions effect the parents. I haven't got into an accident or got a ticket in 25 plus years.

In my case because they are licensed drivers in my household I have been cancelled even though they aren't eligible to drive them - what a stupid law. they can't drive them unless they are 24 - but yet they keep me from getting insurance. Stupid, Stupid, Stupid

some of them to go
73 cougar xr7 conv
1980 mazda rx7 - mint - drives and looks new - 50k miles - got it off original owner
1940 chevy deluxe - suicide doors - mint - 2nd owner
shay model a
67 Plymouth satellite - 2 door - buckets, looks like gtx
66 mustang conv
68 ford torino gt conv
56 bel air conv
57 bel air - no post 2 door
70 challenger rt clone conv
46 merc conv
55 t bird conv
55 bel air conv

I am keeping a few and putting them under my regular insurance - but I can't afford to do that with all of them

thanks ed

Call Grundy for the ones that are mainly just for shows. Also, no law that dictates you have to tell them about your kids as long as they won't drive them. Get separate policies. One for daily drivers with the kids and one for the collector cars with just you and your wife on the policy.

My toy is a 2006 scion xB. I daily a 99 lexus ls400 and usually use my dads crv or truck to haul pins. I've been looking for a early 60s econoline or a toyota previa to make a pin hauler out of.

The xB is basically a full show car now but I still enjoy driving it as much as I can. It's supercharged and has 4 tvs and a original NES inside!!!

I have separate policies - it's not that simple - to have antique insurance they need a copy of your regular policy - there is no cheating here as they talk to each other and look at each others policies. I am trying one more company - but I am not expecting to get approved. my kids are 18-25 - they are officially taking one of the things I love to do away from me. they know it and I know they are upset about it - so I can only hope they learn from it and become good drivers because of it. thanks

Before and during my pinball collecting addiction I was into cars.
Here's a current list;
MG-TD, Austin-Healey Buegeye Sprite, A-H 100-6 and 3000 mkIII, 1960, 1964
and 1968 MG Midgets, MGB-GT, Jensen-Healey, Triumph TR4A, Jag XJS,
Mercedes 350SL and 450SLC, 1978 Vette and 1964 Lincoln.

Yeah, I'm partial to Britmobiles. Also like series 1 and 80 Gottliebs.

Boy you are a glutton for punishment.

My friend in high school had a late 60's mg. He could tap the gas right when he pushed in the clutch and it would backfire. He loved making the girls jump.

Have they upgraded to the newer engine in 2017 STi? That's one of the things that kept me from going up to the STi...I didn't have enough extra monies to make it worth it to me, but it was nice. Did you get the big wing for it? Keeping the white/black look?

1969 Ford Torino GT

1969 Ford Torino GT. 351W with a 4 speed. Bought it as a wreck and spent nearly three years rebuilding it.

Kind of goes with pinball - I love rebuilding anything mechanical.

It is that easy since they are 18+ unless your state has different requirements. Drop them from your insurance and put them on their own policies.

Since it's a car thread here's a picture of me picking up my newest addition.

Car racing makes pinball seem very cheap.

The tyres for my race RX7 were $700 a pop. I can buy a whole pin for that and it lasts longer than a weekend.

I'm happy to say that my helmet has been hung up for now.
