There's no place for that sort of stuff here. This is a RIB forum, don't you know?

As a penance you now have to arrange for me to have a go in it!

lovely with carb....not injection...!
the cost is the only problem, think 16 sparkplugs every change and the rest x 2...

Fun to drive, not to own....

It does the heart good....

Nice to see you guys slavering over a true piece of Americana, a Cigarette offshore power boat. Born and bred in South Florida by Don Aronow the brand is infamous, which adds to the mystique... Anyone besides me on this forum that has been to the old Thunder alley facility Cigarette had? N.E. 188th st. believe it is all probably Condos by now...
