NOW we are talkin. oh wait, that's not a real 16v--just a 16v bumper on a 2.3

ok, forget it, we're not talkin anymore. but plus one point for the euro headlights, although slightly mis-aligned

It has a Ford V8 in there. The guy happened to see our group and joined along. Talk about spontaneity. Plus, he's got several 190E's.

Thanks Greg. I took the photos with my Nikon D80. Most of the shots were taken with my 55-200mm lens instead of the standard 18-55mm lens for more detail and depth of field.

Sometimes I wish the D80 had a faster shutter speed, but it's quite dated already considering there's the D90 that has live view too. Aliza had a Nikon D300, I'm waiting for her to post photos since that's a MUCH better camera than my D80.

I want to get a lens that combines standard kit lens range and a bit of zoom as well but that's expensive with original Nikkor lenses; even with a Sigma lenses they're still expensive.

ah, i think i remember this guy from 190 rev. ford v8 sounds familiar. i think we made fun of him a little, but he acheived something no one had done to a 190e before. ford v8 swaps are common on miatas, not as common on benzes
