It seems this thread has gotten a bit off topic. I'll bring it back around...

The old guys will know my screen name comes from my Sonic Blue '03 Cobra, purchased new in June '02, modded and dragged like crazy, then sold in November '05. My current vehicles are my heavily modded, '93 TT Notch back 5.0, and Brakelate's old '02 Kawasaki ZRX-1200R. Most of the time, however, I will be found behind the wheel of my work truck, a '00 Dodge 2500 Cummins Diesel.

Here's the Notch:

And the Rex:

Really really nice vehicles.

A couple years ago I was driving in the west valley and a guy had one of those bikes on a trailer and I gave him a thumbs up.

My friend Cliff back in NJ has a GT the same color as your LX and it's pretty insane.

I will have to ask him what he has done to it.

Good stuff here. Thanks for sharing those pics.

Thanks! Oddly enough, when I bought this bike from Brakelate, I brought it home from the AV in my truck and one of the members over on SCT saw me on the freeway, and posted up about it.

It's easy to go overboard on cars. My Notch has a stock bottom end, accessories (sans alternator), and interior, but pretty much everything else under the skin has been modified. I'll be selling it at some point here once I get off my ass and fix a crack in one of the headers. The car is fast and really hooks up, but it's too small for my big ass. Brakelate can attest to the power. I was able to keep up with him back when I was still running the stock E7 heads. It has AFR 185s now.

Weird

Wonder if that was me.

I have an eye for cool bikes and vehicles.

When I saw it, it was in immaculate condition like yours appears to be.

Hmmm

No, it was one of the newer members that was a motorcycle rider. I can't remember his screen name right now, but he liked doing wheelies. It just goes to show that the REXs are really recognizable.

That was Norman Perez. I wonder why he hasn't appeared around here yet. Did he register? Hmmm. Wonder where that boys been. :think:

There you go! I knew he was Central American and that's all I could remember. Lol.

He's a good dude. I kick myself, as this would have been great, had the GoPro been aimed a smidge higher. But, this was all shot from the seat of the Z-Rex up in the Malibu Hills.
