    My list of cars is kinda long for my age, here are the last three:

    Last Car:
    91 Acura Integra : 1.8L 16V DOHC 5spd
    Mods:
    • HKS Sport CatBack Exhaust (was kinda rare)
    • Skunkworks Coil Overs 500lb/400lb F/R rates
    • ...Causing about 3 degrees of negative camber at all four corners
    • Kenwood 7015 cd head unit
    • PPI PC2150 Amp
    • 3 JL Audio 10W6s
    • ...All in a custom fiberglass/wood enclosure set into the spare tire well. Great sound quality

    Sold her off a year after she shredded her timing belt at 150K miles.

    Right Now:
    2001 VW Jetta 2.0 auto
    Mods:
    • Just a Kenwood V6017 cd head unit (red almost matches the guages)

    This car bugs the hell out of me!

    Next:
    1989 Honda CRX DX/STD 5spd
    Mods:
    • Nothing yet, just trying to get her on the road.

    Possible engine swap coming in the near future. Going to be replaced with an Integra 1.8L from a 90-93 model. I used to think the Integra was quick, just imagine the same power as an Integra, less about 700-800 pounds. :rock:

    Backroads, here I come!!!

    What's stupid about it, :D

    I know, to most people, three degrees seems a little excessive, but it was great. She wasn't bouncy, cornered like she was on rails, and 12000 miles on $45 sumitomo tires wasn't bad (except that 12K came around every 3-4 months, I like to drive).

    If you think that is a little extreme, you should see what the Japanese do to theur drift machines, especially those that are still daily drivers.

    I used to be known as the guy you didn't want to try to follow down a curvy road. There were plenty of people who thought my car was slow, then I told them to follow me. There were few that did keep up. Yes, there are people out there that are better than me and i'm definatly not the best, but there were some pretty good drivers that would keep up with me.

    Those were the days! :lol:

    J reg rover metro. 1100 cc. 4 speed gear box. Rusting like there's no tomorrow.

    1984 Pontiac Sunbird J2000 4-door
    maroon / grey 2-tone
    1.8l inline 4
    automatic
    no p/w, p/l or a/c
    56000 original miles :D
    VERY little rusting (will be removed in August)

    Bought it 2 years ago from the original owner, a 91 year old lady for $600...

    Only thing I've done to it is to replace the shocks, struts, exhaust (cat back) and tires.

    It still gets an average of around 34mpg ;)


    I was trying to get a '71 GTO Judge from a local seller, but he sold it from underneath me. However, I found another one in New Jersey! If I'm able to get it, it has a 455 HO Ram Air engine with a 4-speed manual shift. :rock:


    Edit::
    Whoo hoo!!! 1000th post! :D

    my choice depening on the weather and my mood

    2000 Ford Ranger 4x4 Regular Cab, Short Bed, with a blown 351 Windsor, lowered 5" front 6" rear
    (for those nice, dry fall days... or summer nights for dragging down the avenue :rock:)

    2003 BMW M3 Convertible, running a turbo, lots of money put into suspension & pretty much whole car is carbon fibre now
    (for the hot summer days)

    1998 Nissan Maxima GXE with a whole lot of money put into the exterior and engine at the moment... still have to do the interior
    (for those rainy pissy days because it's got the special tires the state police run for high speed wet weather driving)

    1998 Honda Civic: some dipwad never paid me, and I had to go to collection... so now I have yet one more car to work on for myself... and to think.... all that because he didn't want to pay me the $6000 for the new 2L VTEC i put into it (of which I broke the window handle off today due to it being a crappily made object and was washing all of the cars)

    and come winter, I'm going to have to figure out what the hell I'm going to be driving... because none of my current vehicles handle well in snow.... least of all the 4x4 truck :rolleyes:

    the truck has over 500bhp at the rear wheel....
    the convertible has around 450-460bhp at the wheels depending on the exact amount of boost
    the maxima has around 350...
    and the civic has around 200...

    right now i've got parts en route to give the maxima up into the 400 range, and the civic up to around 300...

    cars with lots of horsepower, low profile tires and suspension mods are not fun in snow...


    though will say, the truck does donuts very well :naughty:
