    I wish I lived where I could ride a bicycle to and fro everywhere. But in NY where winters last 11 or 16 months/yr. OR it's raining out, I'd be lucky to


    ...sorry, I forgot what my point was. :scratch:

    I've been in the car business for almost 20 years. Biggest waste of money ever. Always buy a nice 5 year old car for your daily needs. If you want something fancy or expensive lease it for 3 years and get rid of it. Old muscle cars are the only good place to put your money... And are still the coolest.

    I've got a somewhat new F150 5.4 Supercrew. I'm always amazed at how much music equipment or furniture I can haul around in the thing. I do miss having a car. I might actually just go ahead and sell it when I graduate and get an IS-350. It's currently my 'realistic dream car'. Where I plan on moving (bigger city for work) a truck would probably be a hassle getting around. The 350 V8 F-Sport might be pushing it :) but I can dream right?
    Now if money was no object... Dream Car = Porsche 911 Carrera GTS. no question.

    so what I own.

    No such thing as V8 IS350. It's a 3.5 liter V6 with 306 hp. Mine's got a K&N Typhoon intake, so I might be pushing a tad over 310. The F-Sport has upgraded intake, exhaust, suspension, and maybe a few other goodies.

    Now the IS-F does have a 5.0 liter V8.

    My bad. I read the specs and I must have got that 8 speed auto confused somewhere in there. I'd just like it to have a bit of get up and go and a 306 hp v6 should do the trick. My last car a 2006 GTO had 500 at the wheels with just a few mods and ran high 11s without hitting the zex go fast button. That was a screamer but the car itself was a letdown quality wise. Spent as much time at the shop for warranty work as in the driveway.

    I will probably never own a car. But I always since I was a little kid wanted an 80s ferrari like a Testarossa.

    I run a ford f-250 super duty company truck. Got a gas card with it so that's pretty sweet, but the truck is crap. Rides like a tank, manual shift, manual hubs, and she doesn't like snow. Had to run chains all winter. In the summer I ride my Harley springer. As far as a wish ride, I think a 70 monte carlo with a 502 stuffed in it would be pretty sweet.

    Always wanted an AC Cobra clone.

    When I first bought my Tiburon I tried to park like that, and people still dented the assteats out of it.

    :lol:

    The first week I bought my ol 06 GTO I parked far enough where I thought it was safe. I came out the store 30 minutes later with 2 shopping carts and their dents in the drivers side door. It made me so mad I bought a paintless dent repair kit and learned how to fix them myself. Dents suck.

    Probably on purpose for you parking like an assteat. ;)

    The car I wanted to buy I simply do not fit in it, oh I tried but just to uncomfortable. No matter the SRT is just as fast and more fun.

    Viper GTS

    I have a 2003 FJR1300 (that I finished the 2003 Iron Butt Rally on), 2003 WRX (white) and a 2008 STi (5-door DGM) on stage 2+.

    What I'd like is either an R8 v10 or a 911 turbo. I'm not about "living my life a quarter mile at a time". To me, the thrill is in the cornering.
