                        Got this '96 with a honda four stroke last spring to replace our 78 crest that originally had a 25HP evinrude that I replaced with a "tower of power" 90HP Merc inline 6 with three carbs.... it didn't have any furniture - but it sure moves with that 90! Sold that to a neighbor.

                        Also have a 86 supra inboard ski boat, put new floors, partial stringer replacment, all new carpet, upholstry, etc on that thing, it only goes about 50mph with only me in it.

                              Currently this is my favorite toy:

                              It's an 01 KTM 640 LC4. More fun than you should be allowed to have on the street. And it goes off-road as well.

                              The other toy is an 03 Kawisaki Prairie 650. Tons of fun and a blast to ride even for a utility quad. Unfortunately I blew the motor up last spring, and it has been waiting for my attention ever since. I have a plow for it and I use it to clear snow in the winter, luckily this winter was very mild, only had to plow once.

                              This was my old quad, sold it to buy the Prairie. It was an 01 Foreman 400 with electric shift. Great mudding quad with the aircooled engine. It was heavy, slow, and had very little suspension, but it was absolutely bulletproof. Still amazed at the beating that it took and kept on going.
