    If I hadn't bought a C6, an older 911 would've been it. Air cooled all the way, baby.

    That's our ZR1 last Summer getting Xpel clear bra. We had just traded in our Victory Red Base Coupe and after the chips I wanted protection. I may not agree with Tanner Faust about much, but putting your foot in this IS like hearing quarters shoot out the exhaust pipe in big streams!

    The only 'Vette I've ever driven with massive snap oversteer. 638 forced induction horsepower with some 605ft/lbs of torque. A truly scary car, even in Kitty-Kat mode with all the aids on. For the money it was a no-brainer compared to trying to mod up a base coupe. Kind of amusing when a kid filling it complimented the tape/vinyl on the top and I had to break his heart and let him know it was REAL carbon fiber! Unfortunately not removable, though. One of the things you learn to live with.

    I love the yellow! I had a grey 2011 C6 Z06 i sold it back in January and last weekend i picked up a preowned 2016 C7 Z06 Z07, in arctic white, 7spd man, 3lz interior with adrenaline red trim. I know exactly what you mean by massive snap oversteer :D

    I like the older air cooled 911's as well but man they are expensive!. A 95 993 C4S in nice shape sell for around 90k Cdn. An early 80's 930 turbo, around 150k.

    I missed the C6 for a while there when i was searching around for a new or used C7 but i don't miss it as much anymore :). This one is a 2016 Z06 that i found being sold by a private seller.

    Trying to get as much seat time as I can before the season starts, still need to tweak the suspension as the rear end likes to kick out if you even think about the loud pedal...

    That's a really nice looking 'bird ya got there. If I ever add another toy to the garage, it'll be a >10 year old Mustang. I really do like a solid-axle car with just a little more power than it needs. :)

    This is mine. I love it dearly, despite it not being in the best shape. Averaged around 1000 miles/year for the last 10 years, then I've added almost 20000 miles in 18 months... :roflmao:

    Rust is creeping in, needed a spot of welding for its MOT. Would definitely consider another E34 in future though, love the 6 cyl M50 engine but wouldn't mind a go of the V8 540.

    Here's my pride and joy, been working on it for roughly 8 years. Its a jzx100 chaser imported from Japan. When I got it, it was mostly stock and I had the intention of leaving it that way. Long story short it didn't last lol

    Completely built the engine with all forged internals, got rid of the 1jz block and built a 1.5jz, high mount Borg Warner turbo, aftermarket ecu, injectors etc. and recently finished converting it from auto to manual.

    Put out a healthy 344kw at the rear wheels at 23psi on 98 octane.

    Now for some pics. (The other car I my wife's caldina GT4)

    I like the older BMW's. My wifey drives a 2003 E39 M5, she's had it since last November and she loves it. She had a 2015 335i previous to it but she doesn't miss it.
    PHOTO_12-04-10.02.57.jpg
    This is her's. Previous owner had a lot of stuff from Dinan done to it, pretty much the Stage 5 minus the cams. Quite fast and the exhaust sounds awesome!


    Edit. So today i was chatting with the wifey about the cars she had in the past and which is her favorite one. She's had three different Mustangs, two of them being GT 500's one was a 2010 the other a 2013, her 2015 335i was the M Motorsport edition but in all she chose her M5 as the favorite one.

    Almost all handling suspension mods complete. Time to start looking for a supercharger...
