A couple of Series trucks, a couple of Porsche 356 coupes, a BMW 2002 Tii, an old OSSA 250 Pioneer, the D-90 and my Range Rover Hunter round out the driveway.

You can do almost anything you need to do in a car with the right combination of Porsches and Land Rovers....

Last I saw he sold it as well about a year ago (I remember the add on the AROC-USA website). It was an awesome car while I had it and would LOVE to track it down again (anybody know where a 1974 GTV vin AR3024656 is LET ME KNOW ) By the way...this was essentially my only reason for registering on this forum was to say HI to Mr. Geurin and let him know about a car he once had. Hope your wife, newfies, and roadster are all doing well!
Jeff! Holy Crap, it IS a small world. Thanks Jeff, the Wife and Newfs (3 now!) are doing well. I trust you're well too.

Ahhh man, she still looks sweet. It's funny, recently I've been considering another Alfa and dumping the Roadster (don't tell her though). Yep, I've still got the Roadster. And don't anybody tell Jeff where AR3024656 is, tell ME.

Wow, I just looked at what I posted to this thread a year ago and my how the garage has changed.

yep. I need to get in touch with Mr. Barnes (runs a store in Denver called Audio Unlimited) and see where the GTV went. It's one of those things that wouldn't matter in the grand scheme of things one bit except for the fact that these cars are getting HARD to come by and knowing the history of one is HUGE.

If I ever find out what happened to it, I'll let you know, CHEERS!

haha, what a great thread! Obie, I'm VERY jealous of your Colnago!

Here's my list:

1998 Audi A4 1.8T
D-90 (weekend rider)
1966 Bottecchia fixed gear road bike (daily-driver)
Cannondale R1000
Wise Mtn. Tools custom mtn. bike
1977 Harley Sportster, fully restored
multi-year chopper that is in process currently
Quite a few pairs of Telemarks
Schwinn Hydramatic

I think that about does it for the garage.

Mmmmmm. Toys... I really just have two other toys--one is my insane mind (not kidding--I keep myself very busy with bizarre OCD thoughts and whims like building the D90) and my gear room. I don't climb as much as I would like (job sure crimps my style, but pays the bills) but it is my #1 passion (family excluded, of course). The D90 is close second, and I think the next moab trip will have to be a great combo of the two. Here is one of my gear stashes...

250 Ossa, that brings back some memories. I used to race a 360 Pursang (Bultaco). It was a hell of a lot of fun but I've got bad knees to show for it.

Other toys? Drums. Specifically, Fibes Drums. I`ve got two of their kits... One Acrylic and one Maple (Jasper shells, if that means anything to anyone on here).

Speaking of which, if there are any drummers on here, I am paying off a new Fibes kit and have a couple of raw Craviotto shells for sale if anyone is interested (one 5.5x13 Maple and one 4x14 Cherry wood)

Other toys, my 110 is the toy.

The garage is full of mountain bikes, mainly DH stuff, and skis. The skis and bikes are for work so they're more like tools.

What is it about us D-90 owners? Seems like we all own telemark skis and fixed gear bikes. I guess that our quirky choice in vehicles is indicative of our non-conventional choices for other recreations.

My list:

Truck: 94 D-90 AA Yellow ST #63 (daily driver)
Skis: K2 World Piste 181cm telemark w/ G3 Targa X/9 Race bindings, Garmont Ener-G boots
Bike: Lemond Fillmore, set up fixed gear (waiting for this toy to arrive)
Computer: Apple PowerMac G5 Dual 2.0GHz, 2GB RAM 0.75 TB disk
Guitar: 1996 Martin DM
Dog: [this space not currently occupied; awaiting future purchase of house]

What else could I possibly want?

BTW, since so many of us are cyclists, I'm going to shamelessly plug my family's bicycle retail biz.

Right now most of my toys are still being built, my MTB race season doesnt start til april. I race semi-pro DH, so its safe to say I've been through alot of bikes over the year. To put it into perspective since 2000 ive probably had over $70,000 worth of bikes, not that I actually paid for any of them in full or anywhere close to it Hell, that Nicolai DH race bike was insured at $11,000 and I probably had $3K into it, oh how i wanted it to get stolen

This season I signed my team for a big deal with Morewood Bikes, so they sent me these 2 DH frames which are sitting in my basement, waiting for parts from various sponsors, to turn into my DH race bike, and my FR/Slopestyle bike

http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a2.../morewoods.jpg

One of these is on its way from morewood and its going to be built up as a 4X race bike

http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a2...n/ndiza_st.jpg

Last year I raced for Canfield Brothers, and sported an F1 with a blingy paint job

http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a2...atSnowshoe.jpg

http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a2...Johnson/F1.jpg

my other f1

http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a2...n/39676912.jpg

Canfield didnt make a HT, so my 4X/Jump bike from last year was an EVIL DOC that my friends from evil hooked me up with

http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a2...nson/DOC11.jpg

In 2004 I was with team Nicolai USA and they hooked me up with these 2 custom geometry handcrafted rigs from germany

The DH rig

4X/jump bike
http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a2...n/33262619.jpg

In 2003 I rode for Karpiel, they made me a custom geometry Disco Volante, i cant find any built up pics of it
http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a2...n/28878360.jpg

Before I started racing I had several other bikes, a couple of turners, a Giant AC, a Kona, an old stumpjumper, and a few cannondale road bikes too. Here are a couple of pictures of the turners. The yellow RFX was from 2002, and the black one was my FR bike of 2003

I also love being on two wheels and a lot of times on one

Current:
01 Disco II
01 Audi TT 225. Might be replaced soon by a 02 Porsche 911 Turbo.
05 Triumph Speed Triple
05 BMW R1200 GS
02 Tomac mountain bike
Old town Canoe. This thing is fun as hell as long as you don't have drunk friends in it.

Looking to add by this spring:
07 Triumph Rocket III
Full blown down hill bike. Stinky maybe?
A street bike (Trek) have a lot of friends that have them and they swear that they are fun to ride.

I think I need to add a D90 to the need to be added list
