Believe it or not, it's a Lamborghini.#1,418
That's a really nice tractor...
There are so many 'little grey fergies' around here still in daily use. And the second hand prices are more than a new basic John Deere. There's a reason for that.
Oh, I'm not saying I wouldn't have it as a gift. I'd sell it though...Be nice. That's one of the few Porsche cars I would like to own!
It had to do with the rim sizes that were available at the time to fit the newer racing tires. The Fuchs (Porsche) wheels were not yet being made in appropriate sizes for the wider skins that were now available. Since the 914, and especially the 911, could really use a bit more rear tire, several folks went to the Minilites in order too get that bit of extra grip in the rear. Also, the Minilites were easy to have drilled to the 5 x 130 bolt pattern that Porsche (and about no one else) used.
That makes sense. Why not on the front, too?Also, the Minilites were easy to have drilled to the 5 x 130 bolt pattern that Porsche (and about no one else) used.
Indeed, I had a set on my first car. '68 Mustang, got them used for $125, I think. They're still on it!it was still tough to beat the economy of the Minilites!
Hey the 928 was the greatest thing around when I started liking cars! (Camaros, Mustangs and Corvettes were everywhere, everyone had posters of Testarossa, Countach and 911, and the 959 and F40 were just too insane). I got to test drive a used 928 years later, but it was much much too heavy for my taste. Only good for highways IMO.I thought this was the Porsche tractor...
Sorry to just now be responding to this so late, but I just found it. Yes, this is a diesel class 8 truck with the road speed governed to 65 mph, however I have had it up to 75 going down hills to get up speed to climb the uphill side. There were no hills where I was driving when this temp/speed reading happened, but I thought it was still worth trying to get a picture of. Even if there had been a steep enough hill to get up to 77 mph, I really wouldn't want to drive it with one hand while holding the phone with the other in that situation. As far as the rpm/speed relation, the new engines are impressive with the high torque output at low rpm's (all in the quest for better fuel mileage).Post 1088 makes me angry… c’mon, really… how hard would it have been to wrap that sucker up to 77 mph. THAT would have been the perfect picture!
Thanks for that! I did not know!#1479 Fun fact: ABBA wore screwball clothing to their concerts because that made the costumes a business expense. They couldn't be so classified unless they were sufficiently odd/outrageous that they couldn't be worn in normal activities.
Also, Anna-Frid was a Lebensborn child, with a selected German soldier as the father. One of Hitler's attempts to produce genetically superior Aryan children.
