Guys, those cars are beautiful, but hatchbacks are where it's at. Here's my baby, it's not very powerful (only 105hp which is pretty good from a naturally aspirated 1.4 litre), it has a custom de-cat exhaust, lowered about 60mm. It doesn't weigh much, 0-60 in about 8 sec, but it corners like a train. I'd take on any one of the cars above round the tight streets of Athens...







It's funny, in those pictures (cos I was low to the ground when I took them) it doesn't look that lowered. From a standing position, it has a very aggressive low stance.

my mustang is setup for road racing (very tight suspension.... handles quite well). And with a wee bit over 600rwhp, it dont have to turn well to make up distance in the straights [:-]

The blue one is my 68 chevy. It has a 383 stroaker and i traided my dad for it and i gave him my 96. I also thought i would throw a pic of my slead in there because it is worht more then my truck. The brown 86 chevy i just bought for $500. It also has a 350 but it leaks air through the valve covers and hte carb is all messed up.

Well right no I cant take any pictures of my 1990 toyota pickup which I own. 22re for motor which would justify the 0 to 60 in five minutes sticker on the back lol. I have plans on finishing that and getting it out of the garage so I can go to Erie and pick up my uncles old 78 or 79 trans am that has a 400 in it with a bunch of of stuff done to it. He told me that he used to be able to run 12's in quarter mile so Im excited to get it and do a nice build project. Its seen very few rain drops and no snow so its in mint condition. In a couple months I will post up some pics.

similar as to what happened to my brother, only he was driving a ford telstar and your brother was lucky and walked away with his life.

Well.. we got a new car today, hah.. a Pontiac Solstice.. GXP.. every option available we got, lol. Was going to get a Corvette C6, but my parents didn't wanna dish out around 75k for a new car, so.. they went the cheaper route and dished out only 36k..

here's our S2000..

The Solstice @ the lot, and a familiar car (my trans am)

Solstice interior..

This thread reminds me that people on this forum are from all over! That Lancer is SICK! We never got that here, but if your brother had it imported maybe you guys didn't get it either.

I've driven a 2006 Scion tC for the past two years or so, done stuff to it that I could afford-- intake, exhaust, springs, sway bar, strut bar, mesh grille, head unit, new speakers, and a couple of other minute touches around it. I guess some folks won't be familiar with this car, it's USDM only, but the Scion brand is a derivative of Toyota. Camry motor, w00t.




I have to sell it this summer to pay for MIT, but it's treated me well.
