    I don't know about you, but I think everybody loves cars in general. Just wondering, but kind of cars do you guys drive?...Please don't lie, be honest, because you are lying to yourself if you tell us you drive a Bugatti Veyron or something like that.

    I have a Fools Royce, Dentley and Aston Harold.

    I'm not lying. I'm just economical with the truth in this day and age.

    I drive a Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4 which I love, but I must admit that the saying is true:

    It's expensive to own a Jeep, but they are fun to drive.

    I own a 2005 ford focus ZX4. This car was originally supposed to go to Germany to be driven on the autoban. But somehow it wound up here in Jackson. The speedometer says 140 and I am here to tell you that it will do it. I have had it up to 110 and still had a lot of petal left. It is quick as an arrow off of the starting line and when I punch it by the time I can say giddyup it is already gone. Guess I got lucky. I checked with Ford and they verified that it was supposed to have gone to Germany.

    Ford is famous for that, but GM does it too. every now and then, a police Tahoe will end up in a soccer mom's garage...they try to get it back, but they rarely succeed.

    Yep, Germany's loss was my gain. And there is no way that I am giving my car up.

    i've got a 1985 Cherokee, 2dr, 4x4, w/"2.8L"....it had the original motor replaced with a Goodwrench crate 3.4L...in a 2.8 block. it looks like a little gray turd, but i got 2 lengths on my mechanic buddy when he was still spinning his wheels, and that at 64 inches wide at the wheels, it will go places that you would only expect a horse. :-D

    we won't go into the $800 viscous coupler. :omfg:

    people rarely do...there's a 1971 Mustang convertable in my back yard i bought on eBay in 2006. after what i went through to get the title, i ain't never giving it up unless my 21 month old son wants to drive it...and at the rate i'm going, that's about when it will be done.

    anybody out there know where i can get a rag joint?

    I have a fleet...

    1979 Coupe de Ville, Tuxedo Black. 542ci stroker engine, about 550HP. Looks like a nicely-kept de Ville, even has wheelcovers. Mid-12-second 1/4 mile on the motor, 12-flat on nitrous.

    1974 AMC Gremlin X, Big Bad Green. 401 engine with a blower, 4-speed, rollcage, racing seats, Cragar wheels, sidepipes...loud, fun.

    1995 Chevy Caprice wagon, white, no woodgrain. Last of the big Chevys, has LT1 350 power, a true "old lady" car.

    1979 Ford F-350 XLT Ranger 4x4 SuperCab Camper Special, red. Originally a 400 engine, now has a 5.9 litre Cummins diesel from a newspaper van.

    1993 International Genesis school bus, motorhome conversion.

    I'm not very materialistic... but this is one of the few material things in life that motivates me. I love the 350z, it's a brilliant car. It's reasonably priced for what it is, and with some modifications it will destroy just about anything that dares to challenge it. Check out 350z racing videos on youtube... the Z owns!

    That Coupe De Ville must look amazing. I love black Cadillacs.

    You have my Jeep, dagnabbit! :twisted: I'm getting a 97 Cherokee soon...but REALLY wanted a 96! That's the best one: the ONLY year that the older body & interior was used with the later (OBD2) engine electronics!

    Really?...wow...I guess you and I have quite different views on this car. The 350z has one of the worst clutches I've ever used and has absolutely no torque at low rpm's...not to mention I feel like its going to float away on curves...eeek...it didn't leave me a good impression.

    And also, it isn't as fast as you think...it only "accelerates" toward the end right before you have to shift, because as I said...it doesn't produce any torque until around 5-6k rpm.

    Im not sure if the 370z is an improvement, but Im talking about the 350z specifically.

    All wheel drive is the only way to go. I only drive manual transmission vehicles. With front or rear wheel drive vehicles I wear out the tires in the front or back within 5,000 miles. Very hard to burn rubber with all wheel drive unless rev and pop.
