First car: 1997 Buick LeSabre.



Thing was a beast. Extremely comfortable and floated over every bump, room for 6 and a decent stereo too. Absolutely terrible on gas and it took premium because it ran awful on regular. Transmission blew when I was driving to the bus station, so I could watch Game 7 of the Leafs-Bruins series at Maple Leaf Square. Worst day ever.

Currently driving a 2008 Pontiac G6.



Much better stereo than the LeSabre, a lot better on gas, and easier to drive because it's smaller. Has the 3.5L V6 rather than the 2.4 4 cyl engine and I love it so far.

i drive an 09 BMW 335i e92 coupe with a six speed and four wheel drive which just took a shit on me recently. I have to replace the transfer case, which will be fun and expensive. the bmw N54 straight six is from the gods.

I have two cars. The first one is a 1999 honda civic. Its my daily driver for work and stuff since its gets good gas mileage stock other then the wheels.


My second car is kinda my baby/toy/project. Its a 2005 Pontiac GTO.  It has long tube headers, intake and full exhaust, Aftermarket wheels, lowered on coilovers, and its dyno tuned. Right now I am saving up to either supercharge it or build up the motor. I want to get it to around 500hp at the rear wheels.


Ill try to get some better pics. These are all I have on my laptop at the moment though.

The GTO was just a tad ahead of its time. Had it come out two or three years later, it would have been a serious contender. I saw one in Keene NH do a serious burn out onto Main St, back end way out and everything

New bimmers look nice but my dream car is this right here. E30 Touring, I'd get it in this exact color





What a gorgeous BMW.

I've wanted an Audi Rs4 like this one since I was about 10:



A friend's dad had one that he took really good care of, and since it was the first nice car I was around I just fell in love with it.

speaking of burnouts, I did this a few years ago right before I got new tires....

Chevy spark, not my thing but it works for now. I would love to have 70's Mercedes Benz. They're fairly cheap but I'm afraid it would turn out to be a money pit.

After years of "da bass" my doors are starting to rattle. I took the trim off and foam taped the shit outta everything. Fixed.

And at this point I should come outta the closet and admit I drive a Civic

my first car was awesome, it was a 1980 something toyota corolla. It was first my aunts car, then my dads car, then my cousins first car, and then my sisters first car, and then when i turned 16 it was all mine. I loved it but i think it only lasted maybe a year

I drive a 2000 Ford Escort. It's been a real pain in the ass this year. Had to replace the timing belt last week and it needs new tires.

Cool car.

I just had to spend a shit ton on a new transfer case, but now it'll last me forever. I love it and it's undeniable proof that I'm better than commoners.

Actually the Pontiac GTO is a Holden Monaro, the G8 is the commodore.

Damn hufs calve muscles, that's a dope Civic.

I have a brother-in-law that manages a Honda dealership and I've been thinking of asking him if he has Accord rims sitting around that I can put on my Civic:



It's still stock, but I've been wanting to do a few subtle things to make it stand out a bit and just overall look cleaner.

I got the idea of using Accord rims after seeing another 2013 Civic with them:

My pops just picked up an RS5 as a daily driver. We took it to an autocross and we were posting times 3 seconds faster than the Ferraris. AWD FTW.

Nice gto and modifications. A cam, gears, and a higher stall converter if it's an auto will make a big difference in an is2 auto combo. More reliable than a blower on a stock motor. Although it's a complete kit and It'll make 500 easy for 6k ish. Building a motor is so much more expensive than I ever plan. I speaking experience. Buy the time you buy all the supporting stuff. Injectors, throttle body, fuel pump, mass air meter etc. A new rotating assembly, ported/new heads/cam plus all the supporting mods and a dyno tune costs 10k min. And you'll still need a converter for your car if you get a cam that makes 500 whp. My 2c

It'll be worth it either way. Love those cars.

I've been wanting to buy a 560 sel or old s class or sl for awhile now.  the key is to find a clean car because if theres rust or poor maintenance records they are a massive money pit.
