Car (or whatever you drive)

Make: Chevrolet

Model: Camaro RS/SS

Year: 1968

Mileage: 139,000

How long have you had it?: 10 years

Anything special about it?: My grandfather and i bought the car as a project and we did a complete restoration on it together. we did all of the work ourselves exept for paint. the car is a an all original numbers matching car. it has the factory 327 ci motor in it along with the muncie m20 4 speed with factory hurst linkage. it also has the orginal 12 bolt rear end out back. it has the original interior and the car came with a lot of options on it. it has ps, pb, tilt column, wood wheel, rear window defogger, rally sport trim, super sport trim, consle with gauges, sholder harness. this car took 7 years to finish but it came out better than i thought it would.

i have also found out that this is what is a called an L30/M20 camaro or otherwise called the Phantom Super Sport. in 1968 the smallest motor you could get in a ss car was a 350, but if you knew the option sheet well enough you could oreder a 327ci/275hp camaro and get all of the same suspension and performance upgrade like a ss 350 car. my car is one of these cause it still has all of the original pieces on the car and they have never been removed.

Performance #’s (if known):

327 ci factory 275 hp now has 350 hp with a 350 cam and z28 heads and aluminum intake.

Gamertag or name:  speed7bump, Garrett

Car (or whatever you drive)

Make:  Pontiac

Model:  GTO

Year:  2004

Mileage:  65,000

How long have you had it?:  About a month

Anything special about it?:  K&N CAI, Magnaflow Cat-backs, Rear bumper from ’05 GTO w/ split exhaust ports, wheels, tint.

Coming soon?:  TSP MagicStick 4 Cam, Valve springs, pushrods.  Pacesetter headers.  Wing delete.

I have wanted a GTO since they were announced in 2003 or whatever.  After numerous weight-dropped and stripped tuners, I finally settled into a comfortable, quick car i absolutely love.  The powerband is smooth, the sound makes your heart beat, and beating ricers is priceless.  I love this car because it represents getting something that you want, not need.  All of my life, I have had to settle for what fit at the time, and I finally have what i want.  Driving with the windows down on summer nights in my baby is one of the greatest feelings I’ve ever experienced.

I know everyone harps on the ’04 because of the lack of power and the looks, but the thing I like the most about them is the looks.  To me, the GTO is a sleeper, and you can’t have a sleeper with huge hood intakes.  That’s why the wing delete is coming soon, because I’d like to keep it as anonymous as possible.

Anything special about it?: First car 🙂 it’s a turbodiesel, but it’s dirty and old and I’m pretty sure 100% stock so it has the trademark “0-60 in 20 minutes!” acceleration but it’s so much fun to drive still (especially in snow, low power band = much fun drifting in the snow)
Performance #’s (if known): 3.0L I6 Diesel w/ Turbocharger (I believe it’s the OM603 engine, not entirely sure, I know its a 6-cyl for sure and not a 5 cyl like the older TD’s) unknown torque or HP 😦
funny story with my Mercedes… I turned on the heater one day when it was over 100°F to take some heat off the engine and something with the electrical messed up, the fuse didn’t pop and the wire leading to my heater got so hot it caught fire.. and spread… up the hood… 😛

Make: Jeep

Model: J-20 Full size Jeep Pick-up

Year: 1984

Mileage: 81,834    YES only 80k actual mileage !!!!

How long have you had it?: almost 6 years

Anything special about it?: Lots of special things about this truck. 1st was when I got this truck I needed a truck that could do a mans job and yet not be to nice because it needed to be a work truck that was going to be used for rough pulling of logs and hauling a very heavy payload as well as ofter being stuck with other weather hazards like rain and snow on top of living in the mountains of western North Carolina. At first glance you may be fooled by her good looks that she is just some hunk of junk but may I remind you that this little baby right here has less mileage then most of the previously listed ones on this forum as well as packing the power of a Mopar 360 ci  4wd with granny gear. Monster axles military tires and lots of dings and dents so you will never feel any guilt putting her to work. Special custom crylon camo paint by me (which reminds me she needs a few touch ups). After market custom made hillbilly dash came pre-installed as this was a work truck a long time before I got her. I have to love it though because it added so much more room for my own tools so its staying!! I may one day add a new hardwood door to spiff it up instead of the plywood one it has. Another fine hillbilly custom addition is my unique angle iron rear bumper.This device is used for those times when you can’t get a tether under your log or there is an item to big to move by hand that needs to be moved also removes rooted trees very very handy!

Gamertag or name: TrampaOnline, real name: Bryce

Car: 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer ES

Mileage: 120,723

How long have you had it?: since winter 2003

Anything special about it?: This car started life as a sad rental car. After the first 30,000miles she was sold to a dealership where I found her after my Sentra was totaled when a teenager driving her dad’s SUV rear ended it while I was at a stoplight. I’ve taken every worn part as an opportunity for upgrading. Being a non-turbo Lancer that needed to be reliable (I got it in college) I’ve focused mainly on making the handling as go kart-like as possible, freeing up the little horsepower it came with, and increasing response. I took the Honda cars of the Japanese tuner Spoon as inspiration in keeping everything as balanced as possible. I can drive this at nearly 10/10ths on the road and not really be breaking the law. I was going to sell her once everything was fixed to pay off some debt, but I can’t seem to put my mind to rest with that. This is a pretty unique car in the Tampa Bay area, so it may be sticking around my garage for a while.

Gamertag or name: VWAG Flip FDH

Car (or whatever you drive) – 1979 XD Falcon ute.

Make: Ford

Model: errrm, 79′ Falcon ute?

Year: errrrmmm  1979 ( feel like I’ve been here before?)

Mileage: approx 1,290,000km  (odometer stopped around 2 years ago,)

How long have you had it?: long

Anything special about it?: Truck suspension, Iron head 4.1ltr straight 6. 1 muffler. Origional centreline mags. It’s a REAL man’s car.

Performance #’s (if known): 1/4 mile approx 17sec.  1/4 mile with half a ton of rocks in the back – approx 17.5 sec

1/4 mile towing a house – maby 18 sec?

This old girl has been to hell and back, no really, I landscaped my back yard with brimstone! It always starts, without fail. People NEVER tailgate me when I’m driving this, I don’t know if it’s because of the smell or they’re afraid of catching tetnus from any of the many rusty sharp edges. When it rains the drivers feet get wet, it has a drain hole to stop the water pooling though. The driver’s door handle on the outside is stuffed (again) but since it started off as a bench seat you can just slide over from the other side. The rear suspension is heavily modified for brick work. ie. I am more worried about bursting the tyres than hitting the bottom of the suspension travel. The plus side to the suspension is when empty it lights up rear tyres like an Arnie lookalike convension.

I know it’s a dog of a car, but it just won’t stop. I have had 3 offers from random people trying to buy it from me in a year, ( i think one wanted it for scrap though?) I actually put a not for sale sign in it. There are many prettier cars on here, and many faster ones, but I’ll but my firstborn that most, if not all of them, won’t ever travel as far as this one and still be going 🙂

PS – it has been 2 years since this photo. . . .  looks waaaaayyy worse now 😉

Gamertag or name: UsefulIdiot07 – Richard

 

 

Make: Mitsubishi

Model: Evo IX MR

Year: 2006

Mileage: 47,XXX

How long have you had it?: 18.5 months

Anything special about it?: Not much special. I bought it after my 95 Integra was stolen, intended to keep it stock and use it as a daily driver, now it barely gets driven unless I’m racing it. After my autocross season ends in November, I’m planning on completely changing the setup.

Performance #’s (if known): 264whp/260ftlbs on a Mustang Dyno. Stock boost tables w/ intake, turboback (w/ high flow cat), and fuel/timing tune on 91octane.

The plan is to convert to e85 this winter, keep the stock turbo, and build around that setup. I hope to be around 400whp/400ftlbs, which is definitely a possibility, but I may need to look into other transmission options  because the MR 6spd has a pretty weak 4th gear, that’s prone to grenading when on track.
