I have seen several really nice cars in pics posted here, and some great looking motorcycles too, but they are scattered all over, so here is your opportunity to show off those whips! Imports, classics, muscle cars, street rods, cruisers, sportbikes, customs, work in progress....
So go on, show them off! maybe tell a bit about them, did you buy it or build it?

I always liked that body style, the new ones are growing on me though...

if you chip it and install a full exhaust, they get silly fast!

God, I'm so tempted to chip, get a new downpipe, and new TIP. From 180/180 hp/tq up to 220/220 or beyond....ugh, be so nice, but so much money.

Good news/bad news, my turbo whine is getting louder. It sounds hella mean on the road now, which is awesome, but it also means the turbo might be reaching the end of its life...(which means K04 or above upgrade!!!)

They're both gone now, but these were my passion until recent sale.

This was the first & only brand new vehicle I have ever owned. 2000 Jeep Wrangler - 4.0 with some work, 6.5" lift, 35" swampers, nv4500 tranny, 4.56 gears, detroit rear, 10.5k winch, and more. Man I miss it.



This was my 1948 Willy's CJ2A. Did some restoration & rebuilt the tranny, xfer case, axles, and more. Fun little toy. Nearly killed me first time out wheelin it (clutch rod snapped and it took off backwards on the side of a STEEP cliff).

That is really sweet, one of my dream cars.



I just gave this car away to a friend of mine as I didn't have any time to work on it any more, it's now the shop car for his shop.

1984 BMW 318i, stock M10B18 converted to a dual carburetor setup. The car is about as light as it can possibly get on all stock metal and glass. The car is just being built to be stupid and beat the crap out of. I bought it from a BMW friendly junkyard (he will always try to sell a BMW, for really cheap, before junking the title) with a rusted freeze plug.

I have always wanted an old 2002, swap in an e30 m3 s14 motor and trans, that would be a quick street car!

Bru, thats a nice list of goodies there, I prototyped the agency power pulley, also designed the agency power rotated 35r kit for the subies and the 35r kit for the Lancer evolution7,8,9. I used to work as the head mechanic/occasional fab man for Vivid Racing (Agency Power), lots of cool cars to work on, sad that the owners are total dick heads.

Here is, or was, my truck (94 ranger). I just sold it, after having it nearly 10 years. It has pearl blue ghost flames, which you can barely see on one of these pics

Here are mine. The Jeep is a 2000 and is a good compromise between mall crawler and wall crawler with lift kit, 33x12.5's, and lockers front and rear. The Magnum is a 2005 with 5.7L hemi, front fender cold air intake, Vortech Supercharger, Dynatech longtube headers, free flowing cats, Aeroturbine exhaust, and Diablo Predator custom tune. It dyno'd 420 at the rear wheels at altitude. The picture with the nice lady was a photochop that one day will grace the wall of my office in the brewpub :ban:

The carbs were donated from his 2002 project car, which will be getting an M20 swapped in to it eventually.

He also has a nice old M5 that he is restoring.

pretty fast yes, lives on 100 octane gas though. I need to swap over some injectors and remap it to run on E85, better power and way cheaper to fill up.

More please.

A 2002 is my next purchase. A friend has one sitting in his garage that he's offered to sell me when I finally get a place where I can keep two cars. For now I just have a 2003 325i. My first car was a junker BMW, and my last car will be a BMW. So will every other car in between.

More please.
Sure. Right now the car has 210,000 miles and the last valve adjustment was completed in Aug 2009. I go about 40,000 between adjustments.

Inline 6, 3.6L, 24v, individual throttle bodies, about 360hp at 7100rpm, good for 178 or so:


on 275 rears


w/ polished m-system IIs


side shot


from when I lived in Okemos, MI (a dreary time for me and for the car)


next to 530iX, still prefer driving the M5 in the snow, lots of fun

I think those things are hilarious and if I had a big ball-bustin' truck like that I think I would hang some on the back.
Lol i hate those things, the problem isnt the nuts themselves its that generally the people who have them are some serious redneck dbags lol!

Yeah... I guess they generally are rednecks. I'm not a redneck, but... just for a laugh... considered buying some for the back of my Lexus. :D
