Wow, I don't have any old-school car porn in my driveway (or parking space...I live in an apartment, after all), but I am a car geek of the highest degree. And I have a thing for Saturns. Sue me.

My now-resting-in-car-heaven autocrossing '93 SL2 (stripped out, intake, header, straight pipe exhaust, H&R race springs, KYB struts, Yokohama R compound shoes, Sparco seat, Simpson harness):



My daily-driven-until-the-engine-died '97 SC2 (AEM intake, cat-back exhaust, Rota Subzeros with Kuhmo 711s, Intrax lowering springs, KYB struts):



My current daily driver, on which I did my first in-car clutch job, an '00 SL2:

hahaha. Should I not tell you that it has a 390 big block (factory) with a nice lumpy cam, 650cfm 4bbl+RPM manifold and 2.5" piping the whole way back?

..and power windows, power bench seat, a/c, am/fm... power rear window, yadda yadda yadda...

Great looking car. I really like the wheels/color combination.

Sneaky Sneaky! On my old neon (98 r/t) I had the spray mounted on the underside of my intake with braided line that ran with my fuel line - most people thought it was just the fuel line itself. 50 shot gave me 60whp/80wtq (202whp/200lb/ft) I miss that car terribly.

i've never put mine on the dyno, but i have a 75 shot. it's fun pulling up next to college kids that are in there mom's stock mustangs and purging the spray. they usually try to race and they usually get caught in my rear view mirror.

Haha sneaky stuff with the nitrous there. I had a kit that was ready to install on the green coupe pictured above, and then the engine decided it needed to take a nap. Forever. RIP engine block. Had a nice crack between two cylinders. I would've replaced it myself, but that car was a money pit already, so I said screw it and got rid of it.
