Anyone else have summer toys? Will you be selling them when you get your RS? POST THEM UP!

I myself have a 2015 Mustang Ecoboost Premium with Performance PKG - Cobb Stage 1 and just little details.
I do have it for sale though :( if anyone is interested I can give you info. I just rather have money to pay off my RS in full then half and have a loan. I just seen her today to! I had to flip it around in the unit since my battery tender was sitting all funny.

I recently sold my Jeep Wrangler to make space in the garage for the RS. I will always keep my 1988 M3 though. Probably hand it down to my son after I'm long gone, lol.

I had a 1985 BMW E30 Straight Six - 5 speed with a few mods. I miss it! I sold it to fund my RS along with every car I buy lol.

Yes thats my friends lotus. He helped me buff the paint on the E30 and he also loved the E30 sept it was straight piped so it was loud!

Going in a very different vehicular direction:
Selling the 1983 unimog. Amazing piece of machinery that I struggle to find uses for. I am getting replacement miata to set up for rallyx.
Also selling 75 fj40 which is current daily driver to be replaced by rs when ever orders make it this far west.

See the signature. Currently DD, soon to be summer project car. Currently stock except MegaSquirt. Was going to be turbocharged but then I bought another car instead, so turbo kit still TBD.

The only picture I have of just that Miata. And my boyfriend very much not seeing the humor in that situation.,

@Gokart3. Man, that's some shifter!!! Sequential? Rev matches on downshifts?
It's CNC'd from billet aluminum, then anodized. There's a guy from the the SELOC forum who has a buddy that builds F1 parts. One thing led to another, and there was a group buy. Anyhow, the stock shifter in all the Elise/Exige cars is 100 percent RUBBISH. The cage is build from stamped steel and flexes all over the place. This piece is amazingly stiff. Zero flex. And with a new set of upgraded cables the parts were just a bit over 2k. The cheapest sequential setup runs about 6-8k and the epic sequential system is over 30k. I figured I'd just row my own, but vastly improve it. Here's an overhead of the stock [email protected] and the Alitech side by side.

Much more robust. But it's loud. So in a car that's gonna have passengers, or you'd be driving on long trips, it'd probably kinda get old. For me... not so much!

@Gokart3 Yeah, that shifter is BEAUTIFUL. Thats the definition of car porn. One of the guys I race with was quoted $21k for a C5 vette sequential setup... No thanks.
I'm still trying to find the right solution for my e46 M3. The stock setup was horrible, 3/4" left-right play IN-gear. Even with brass bushings and a great shifter it's still got a bit of play.
