So since there are a few more guys here who likes to talk about cars, or just share stuff, I thought I'd make a thread about it.

Title says it all, now post away.

All that I can foresee is people who love muscle cars and despise everything else, people who love Euro-tuners and nothing else, and people who love Japanese tuners and nothing else.

As for me, I enjoy myself Japanese cars. :lol:

The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

European cars are the best kind of cars, obviously. :D
Can't wait til after this summer when I've been working like a maniac. I might have enough to get a Porsche 911 Turbo from the 80's.
Not that I complain about my current ride though.

Gordon, I agree with everything but the roof, I want coupes, hatchbacks and sedans. :tup:


Just a reminder to people, you can come in here and discuss any car you want, even a Prius if that's what floats your boat.

roadsters are ridiculously fun. coupes have there place, certainly. but for pure fun, roadsters are epic good.

My preference falls to a small 4x4 pickup for day to day use and toying around on minor trails.

For the more spirited I stick to a good sport touring motorcycle.

Drop top cars may have there place but two wheels is the ultimate fun machines.

Muscle cars are my area of expertise, but they are by no means the "best". Far from it.

There's a guy in town with a 69 Roadrunner with a 440 Six Pack that I want, hopefully I save up the money to get it.

the problem with bikes is when you stuff it, and thats a when, not an if, WHEN you stuff it, i'd rather have a nice steel cage around me.

but yeah, bikes are fast, no doubt about it.

That's all that's on the ad. Judging by the 383 callouts on the hood inserts, the motor isn't original. Seats look aftermarket, black vinyl top looks good,and needs body work. I'm okay with the body having some issues because it'll be a driver for me.

He says 440 six pack motor, but hard to tell from the pics.

Sweet Roadrunner.
It looks a little worn though.

I really, really hope I'll get my hands on a 911.
Going to do some simple work on my Audi first.

This one is 1991, but the initial production was from 85-92 I beleive. It's in serious need of attention, the entire engine is GONE, pretty sure somebody threw a piston through the block, and driveline is basically siezed, differentials fucked right up, and the suspension is sagging. All I care aboust is basically the frame being intact, which the current owner says it is, and to me - he's a reliable source considerin I know him. I need to go look at it and put money in his hands, but this should shape up to be my next project.

I fully rebuilt a 67 Gt350, but I sold her to a fellow out in BC, and now shes cruising the mountain roads around Cranbrook/Fernie/Kimberly. Whenever I get bored, I rebuild cars.

It's fun with older cars, especially before everything got super electronic - in which you need a degree in electrical engineering to understand. :lol:

I tend to not rebuild anything newer than the 90's from there on in - it just gets frustrating to work on with the newer compact designs and electrical work.

True but by that token a coupe would offer more safety then a roadster.

Personally I have "stuffed it" once off roading with very minor injury (two broken toes), I road that same bike to work the very next day. Then last September I got seriously injured by a driver running a light and turning into me. I lucky to be hear and after four months I finally have a for sure that I keeping my left leg after all (still can not walk though). I suffered a compound fracture to my lower leg with splintering of both tibia and fibula. My leg was torn open by the car and bikes wreckage as I flew. The landing cause a separated shoulder and some road rash. I was knocked out for a few mins and have lost some memory of the 10 or 15 mins prior to accident. My right leg was gashed open to the bone and I was bruised from head to toe. I have had three surgeries to put my leg back together. For three months I had a rather large whole in my leg that got packed on a daily basis be nurses because there just was not enuff tissue left to stitch my leg back togeather. I have a steel rod running inside the bone going from my knee to my ankle now held in place with 4 screws. It is looking like another month before I can start attempting to walk again. I have lost significant weight since the injury 30+lbs due to muscle loss from accident and lack of ability to use but also cause the antibiotics I have to take make food not all that appealing. Pain levels were quite high at times and I am sure this will cause me discomfort going forward indefinitely.

But despite this little misfortune I am not angered at the woman that hit me or question ridding again. I LOVE riding and i will not stop loving riding. Is there a added risk sure but the fact is at least in my eyes the risk is absolutely worth the freedom and exhilaration one gets from riding a motorcycle. Funny enuff the day after my accident as I was sitting in the hospital, Friends asked what they could bring to break up the boredom of sitting waiting, I asked for a bunch of motorcycle magazines. I have gone to the last two motorcycle super shows in a wheel chair. About the only sour point for me is a month prior to the accident I bought myself a new Toyota Tacoma with a 4 cyl and a 5 speed stick. Well though I allowed to drive I can't drive my truck as I can not safely operate a clutch pedal as of yet.

The bike I was riding when I was hit was a 2003 Kawasaki Vulcan 500. It was just a cheap bike I had planned to build a cool little bobber with. I was using it for the summer as my work commuter vehicle. The bike was a 100% right off.

HAPPILY I still have my do it all bike a 2010 Honda CBF600sa. It's a great little comfy bike with enuff power to keep me happy. I have ridden it 11000km across Canada in 2011. It handles far better than my current abilities can exploit and is just a great do it all machine from touring to track days to commuting. Also still ride my first bike witch I have since given to my mother. A 2000 Yamaha V-Star 650 Classic it's slow and relaxed but works great for two up riding and putting around the country taking in the views.

Motorcycles are not for every one but there truly is nothing like it. I have driven every thing from Corvettes and the new Comoros to my old highly modified Diesel pickup truck (wich I sold when I bought my house could only afford to keep one toy and as much love as I put into my old truck I loved my bike more).

I prefer Euro-tuners and Muscle Cars.

Currently looking to trade my El Camino for a Porsche 944, or 928. Hopefully a turbo too. But there aren't many in my area as I live where Muscle Car fanatics flock to due to the frequent car shows.

I love my '04 Impreza :) The first car I ever bought and I'm going to drive her until she can't drive anymore.
I'm not a tuner by any means and especially not a "ricer". I love how she drives now and see no need to change that. I am, however, saving up for a kick-ass sound system.

Driving to, and from work, and an Audi is pretty much his dream car. He has talked about getting one for a while now, and now that he can afford it, he doesn't seem to want it. His excuse was the turbo gives it bad gas mileage. the 4runner is worse on gas. I'm 90% sure that my mom has something to do with this, because I think she wants the 4runner when the lease expires.

The newer Audi cars with turbos does not have worse gas mileage than a 4Runner.
Even my A4 Quattro 2.6L V6 get's better mileage than a 4Runner. :rolleyes:

That's just awesome. The E30 was the best BMW ever made. I wish BMW would re-run their production, I would snap one up.

Sadly, I recently came to the realization that I will never restore my RX7, and so I must sell it. Anyone looking for an '85 GSL-SE? It needs a starter, a battery, and a lot of love.

Just grind on it. An A6 is a pretty cool car. And the Turbo models almost wants me to change out my bigger engine for a smaller one with a turbo. :D

as a rule of thumb:

the smaller the car,
the lighter the car,
the lower the car,
the less roof on the car,

the more fun it is


So Miata is the answer. Always Miata.

Gotta have a fast car dude. ;)


I'm slowly working towards that. Going to find me a Civic wagon RT4WD and turbo it.

That way I can get groceries, and beat expensive cars in races all at once.

I can just turbo my A4 Quattro, I mean, I get 30 more bhp by chipping it, and I'm already at 150 stock, so god knows what a Turbo, a sports exhaust and open airfilter will do to that V6.
Or the cheaper and more likely option, I'll just get 911 Turbo from the 80's or 90's.

The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

And yes, Gordon is the sexiest manifestation of "to the front."

You should paint them gloss black. Gloss black steelies look infinitely better.

I'm not gonna use a single second on making those rusty piece of shit rims look better. I might put winter tires on my current summer wheels instead and buy a new set of nice rims and tires when the spring comes.
