Personally,
I kinda view my 26' Sonic similar to my first car, a 1983 Chevy Monte Carlo. I loved that car just like I loved that boat. Rock solid, classic lines, built like a tank, and always gonna be around. I kick myself everytime I see a similar cherry MC, for selling mine.

Similarly, I view my 37' AT like my 1987 Trans Am. My buddies had IROCs, which were light and fast without the ammenities of my TA. We all had the same 350TPI and 700R4 tranny, but I had 7 way power seats, 6 channel amp with subs, nicer paint & color(beautiful Midnight Saphire Metallic), digital dash, (looked like KITT), T-Tops, and trick (for the era) pop-up headlights etc. I was a little slower in the 1/4 due to all the amenities, however I was always right on their bumper on cannonball runs; and I always looked slicker than they did, as the ladies always wanted to ride in the TA, not the IROCs. (Granted, if I was in Jersey... IROCs are still king. ) I like my AT over my Sonic, but I will never forget the MC or the Sonic. I sold the TA to get a more feasable daily driver, which is probably along the lines of why I might someday sell the AT, as I will want to go 60mph with a stateroom and a stand-up stripper pole below decks (Donzi 39ZSC/Formula 40SS).

Funny how history and hobbies repeat themselves.

any offshore baot is equal to a GT1 race car. Heavy as hell (even thelightest skate is still a heavyt piece of equipment), huge v8 power, don;t exactly turn ona dime, rebiulds are a bloody fortune, they break **** all the time AND they cost a bloody fortune to run/operate.
