Just a random post to see if anyone here is an automotive enthusiast like myself.
Are you into anything in particular?


Here's a picture of my current car. I'm a little bit of a bmw guy haha.

(I'm sure there are female car enthusiasts on here, not just car guys).

I used to be really into cars. Not so much anymore, for whatever reason. I still watch Top Gear frequently though and it's pretty A+.

As for owning a car, I'm currently saving up to buy a car from a secondhand dealership. I actually have a job interview in a few hours, so if that goes well I'll be able to save up a lot quicker. I'm looking at getting a Nissan Pulsar, as for the specific model I'll really be happy with whatever I find that's in decent condition.

Here are my two vehicles. Right now the Jeep is where my money will be going towards. It'll be paid off in like 8 months, so once that's done. I can start adding a 2" lift to it, with some bigger tires. Would also like to get a either a Gibson Cat back exhaust, or just a muffler. Bigger throttle body, and there is this carbon fiber hood, that's like $1400, that I would love to get for it. But that's low on the priority list.

My Grand Prix will stay stock for the time being. In three years, I plan on replacing it, with either a Speed3, or when the Dodge Dart SRT becomes available.

I am a broke college student and a diesel nut, so the only rig I have is my 97' Cummins extended cab dually. Current setup is 5x.012 VCO injectors, 16.5 degrees of timing, pump mods, and a 500 hp clutch. Estimated at about 400 hp and 1000 ft lbs. The last time I had it on a dyno it made 342hp and 845 ft lbs with just pump mods. Since then it got injectors, a timing bump, and a lot of pump tuning. Future plans are compounds and supporting mods to hit 500-550 hp, along with a flatbed, wheels, a sound system, and a few of miscellaneous parts.

After I graduate I would love to build a Chevelle, fix up my dad's Cutlass Supreme, and build a hot rod TDI Jetta





When things don't go as planned...I ended up using that baby Kubota on the trailer to pull my truck and trailer out. I am still surprised that little tractor managed to pull almost 10,000 pounds of static weight out of the mud.

Please tell me you are kidding and you aren't actually dumping money into that doorstop. You can't actually be serious, right?

Never taken a pic of my Infiniti G37 but here a pic of what it looks like.

Same color, same Enkei 18" rims

I think they should have just left it with the original Japanese name because it sounds way cooler... Nissan Skyline 370 GT



Anyone who plays stupid games on the freeway (you know... go really slow on the fast lane and then speeds up when you try to pass) I just blow their doors off... bye-bye

I want to take it to Leguna Seca someday and put in some laps. That'd be cool.

Hellaflush... LOL Not a fan of the useless look.
I prefer to actually have fun in my cars, not just make them look pretty to the point where they are useless.


Here's mine 91' Toyota MR2 Turbo

My '88 Toyota MR2 SuperCharged

I consider myself a car guy. Right now I drive a 1989 Volvo 760.

Though I want to drive an American muscle car or classic car. Everyone in my neighborhood drives modified Hondas and Acuras, and I want to be different.
