Reggie Beard's great looking 1978 Diplomat.  You should see the size of the trunk speakers in this car!  More pictures are at the link below.  The text and background on his Diplomat page were both white (at least on my PC) and I had to swipe the screen with my mouse to read the story.

More pictures of Anthony Churchill's 1979 Diplomat, Sluggo (first photo on Diplomats 15).  Here's the full story on the car as written by Anthony:

Sluggo earned his name mostly to make fun of an acquaintance of mine who owned a Mustang. This particular Mustang was a base model with a V-6. The guy put MUSTANG GT across the top of his windshield which just killed me. A friend and I promptly went out and bought a few stick on numbers (about 6" tall) and created SLUGGO GT for my car (it was green and he had made fun of it saying it was slow). He didn't like it much, challenged me to a race, which I won. The Sluggo stickers stayed on for about 2 years, much longer than I thought and the name stuck. That guy took off his Mustang GT stickers and never spoke to me again. I felt bad, but he started it by insulting my car. This weekend I gave Sluggo an oil change in preparation for another Canadian winter and figured I would take some more pictures. Sluggo I bought from my Great Aunt for $500 Canadian five years ago and he has been great ever since. She hardly ever drove him, and even with the five years I have driven him he only has 88900 km (as of about a week ago). He is also quite fast, despite what many others think upon first glance. This summer I came upon an Alberta prairie highway (dead flat, straight, 30 foot wide asphalt, and at the time empty) and with my GPS on the dash saw how fast Sluggo could go, 190kmph (About 119mph) was as fast as I went. I'm sure you know what it's like to wonder what he'll do, I just had to wait for the right safe moment. the GPS also helped as my speedometer only goes to 140kmph, and the GPS has a Max speed setting. Knowing that makes me proud and glad to stick safely to the speed limits. I have a friend who recently bought a new Z24 Cavalier that has a governor at 160kmph (100mph), he is pretty unhappy that my 20 year old car can go faster than his brand new one. These sure are good cars, I plan on taking care of mine and driving it for a long time.

Dave Arnold snapped these photos while on the move.  While I don't condone such behavior (I would never forgive myself if someone got into an accident while photographing cars for this site), I do appreciate the pictures and the effort (grin).  Dave's own description for this car works best:  "chased this abused dippy down the freeway trying to get a good shot...not bad for on the fly, trying to drive and point the camera at the same time... as usual... use them how you wish... except you may not take it's clothes off....this car was in sad shape...though the pics don't show it... it's window  was terribly cracked...(as opposed to my big crack that's visible in the pics), dings and dents, hasn't been washed in two years... but at least Farley will be excited."  I am wondering what the other driver thought of someone aiming a camera at their car.  :)
