Discovered in another thread that I'm not the only guy here who (mis)spent his Friday and Saturday nights as a youth racing on Forest Ln in Dallas.

Had a 70 Buick GS 455 Stage 1, arguably one of the best muscle cars ever built. An absolute sleeper. Tremendous torque. Not fast (though pegged it a couple times), but very quick. Beat Vette's, SS's, GTO's, etc. Got my rear handed to me by a Shelby and a Charger RT Hemi.

Great video of a stock GS (tuned) in action:

My first stang was a 91 GT, GT40 upper and lower, stage 1 heads, custom cam, dumped exhaust and lots of other stuff. I researched everything myself and my friend @Gary and I did a lot of the mods ourselves. He also had a couple stangs.

My second stang was a 99 Cobra. Also had a 99 SS around the same time but didn't do much to that car. Both cars saw action around Greenville Ave and Forest Ln for those who know Dallas This was when I was around 18.

Over the years I've had two Vettes as well, finally selling all that post-divorce and going back to sensible cars. That may not last much longer, as last year I bought a 12 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4x4 with the Hemi, and enjoy it so much that I have been eyeballing the new 14 Jeep SRT with the 6.4L V8, 0-60 in 4.5 seconds for a SUV...



(Ignore youtube title, it's a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT not the Dodge)

"Had a 70 Buick GS 455 Stage 1"--

That reminds me of when I had just received my drivers license, in late 1969...I went to the Buick dealer with my Mother, as she had to drop off her Buick for service and the dealer offered her a "Loaner car". The service manager said "what would you like to drive as a loaner" ?, my Mother , knowing that I liked fast cars, said, "I want the fastest car that you have" !.
They brought out a GS455 as a loaner car ! Needless to say, I had a great time with it !!!!
A great memory from my childhood, that I'll never forget....

Not really a fan of muscle cars, I had a car that gave me a huge petrol bill on weekends. We had the Fuji Speedway close enough to Tokyo and some parts of the track would be accessible. Then I came back to this part of USA and now everything's in a few blocks' radius; I take the free shuttle or a Zipcar if I need it.

I really like the new Jeep Grand Cherokee and the SRT is badass. Combined with a supercharger and you've got a Lambo/Porsche/Ferrari killer.

I own a modified B5 Audi A4. Personally I'd really love to own the new Audi S3. 0-60 in 4.9 seconds (conservative) with a 2.0 4-cylinder turbo:

I wish he tested the 2014, stock it does 0-60 in 4.2 where I think the 2013 is 4.5 stock.

I'm counting on an S3 as my next car, Currently in a 2011 135i.

Unless of course, I hit pay dirt. Then I'm going after a Singer 911

You are one of the few people who call it petrol I guess. I kept hearing about 'gas' everywhere in USA (it was 2008 and oil's bull market of all bull markets was ongoing!)

When a guy from India (who learns based on what the Brits injected down here) walks into America he needs a term translator like this:

(Non USA) -> (USA)
petrol -> gas
bill -> tab
notes -> bills
doubt -> query / question


and so on.... (too many to list here)

That was some excellent observation; you must make a great trader. I came over initially for college, and as every other college kid, I got scammed into a dorm meal plan and we always had omelette for breakfast. The serving lady would ask me what I'd like in my omelette, and I'd point at the "peppers" and say "Capsicum, please." I realized after a few strange looks that no one calls it a "capsicum". I still don't understand the logic behind this - I mean it's OK to call it a "bell pepper" but it's common to have egg seasoned with pepper (the spice).

Gas is another illogical truncation that still gets me annoyed, because it could imply natural gas, hydrogen, a whole lot of other likely energy sources.

The size of those panel gaps is distracting. And I wonder if the inside material quality and dash has caught up to all the tech and cutting edge appearance.

I'm an absolute car fan. I especially like European sports cars. A guy I know has a Bugatti Veyron and I thought that was the absolute fastest car I would ever see then I saw this, the Koenigsegg. This is really impressive.

Forgive me, but since there are a few other "Off-Topic" posts I thought I would add this Thunder Mustang. It is a carbon fiber Kit Plan that is a 3/4 scale of the P-51 Mustang.

One of the most beautiful aircraft ever built, and plenty fast. You look pretty good behind the stick!

Always been a fan of this fast mover too:

What about this one?

Not as fast as your fighter plane. But it sails rather smooth and is not as noisy.

You can even open a window to smell the clouds.

For getting started just use a winch that pulls you into the sky, then look for a decent updraft.

As far as I remember this was the last model I have been flying.....

Well, since we're talking about muscle...I thought I'd throw up a pic of the bird I used to fly....a Boeing 747-300. She's a -200 model with a -400 wing on her and GE CF-6 power.....51,800 lbs of thrust at sea level....per engine! Heavy Metal....(think Iron Maiden) ....similar in overbearing obnoxiousness to a 67' 427 tri-power vette.

She was a real dream to fly....as long as you didn't get on her bad side.

Happy 4th of July everyone!

Lol...now you've got me wondering. I suggested cargo as it was lacking any livery, so thinking it was a cargo transport 747. What were you flying around Johnny?

The original P-51D had the V 12 Rolls Royce Merlin engines.

The 3/4 scale Thunder Mustang uses a Falconer V-12 engine. The carbon fiber kit gives a power to weight ratio that outperforms the original North American P-51D fighter.

The engine was designed by Ryan Falconer who I understand is known for making car racing engines.



The use of a V 12 in the kit gives the Thunder Mustang a "Purr" like the original Mustang's V 12

640 HP Falconer V-12 @ 4800 rpm

Serious muscle...thanks for the aircraft stuff guys.

The base kit is just under $300k. That includes everything but the instruments and upholstery. A lot more if you want "builder assistance" to do the assembly instead of doing the build yourself. Here is the website for more details:

My first stang was a 91 GT, GT40 upper and lower, stage 1 heads, custom cam, dumped exhaust and lots of other stuff. I researched everything myself and my friend @Gary and I did a lot of the mods ourselves. He also had a couple stangs.

My second stang was a 99 Cobra. Also had a 99 SS around the same time but didn't do much to that car. Both cars saw action around Greenville Ave and Forest Ln for those who know Dallas This was when I was around 18.

Over the years I've had two Vettes as well, finally selling all that post-divorce and going back to sensible cars. That may not last much longer, as last year I bought a 12 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4x4 with the Hemi, and enjoy it so much that I have been eyeballing the new 14 Jeep SRT with the 6.4L V8, 0-60 in 4.5 seconds for a SUV...



(Ignore youtube title, it's a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT not the Dodge)

I have a 2007 mustang, supercharged with methanol injection. I threw a smoke screen on it for giggles so I could be a little like James Bond.. I want a Corvette next

Talk about going fast...enjoyed watching the German Grand Prix last weekend (congratulations Sebastian Vettel), and I've always been fascinated with the orchestration of a sub 3-second stop. Found this slow-mo anatomy of an F1 pit stop, and Mark Webber's world record 2.05 second stop in Malaysia this past April.

Next Ford Mustang to drop 400 pounds - Autoblog


Quoting 
The Ford Mustang is already the lightest of the current crop of muscle cars, at around 3,600 pounds for a GT coupe with the six-speed manual transmission. That's almost 260 pounds less than a Chevrolet Camaro SS and about 450 pounds less than a Dodge Challenger R/T, which means the Mustang has a pretty big advantage when it comes to handling, braking, accelerating and economy. More good news: The next Mustang will be even lighter.

According to a report from Edmunds, the sixth-generation Mustang, which is set to debut at the 2014 North American International Auto Show, will shed an additional 400 pounds of body fat. That 11-percent weight reduction will be thanks to lightweight materials, with a particular focus on using stronger, but less material in construction. Aluminum will feature heavily, but Edmunds' inside source warns that there is "nothing terribly exotic" coming to the original pony car.

The other big news is that the new Mustang will be smaller overall. It's going to be 15-inches shorter than the 188.5-inch Mustang on sale today, while it'll also be 6.5 inches narrower. Shorter overhangs, both in the front and rear, are also good signs for those that want an agile Mustang.

Of course, these improvements aren't going to come cheap. Depending on what sort of equipment is selected, the max price is going to jump about 10 percent according to Edmunds. Still, a bit of extra cash for a lot less weight is a deal we're happy to live with.

BTW... Gas (diesel) in Ecuador is $1.03 a gallon. I am going to sell my 12 Jeep Grand Cherokee (unleaded) and pick up a 14 model year Diesel to import into Ecuador...

On an interesting note, unleaded down there is around 2.50 a gallon. Glad to see Diesel is so much cheaper (subsidized).

Probably not ultra low sulfur and cheaper to make as well, I would guess.

Woah! I half expected that clip to dramatically pause in midair so Waylon Jennings could say something wry like "friends, I don't know about y'all but I think that boy is in real trouble now!"

BTW... Gas (diesel) in Ecuador is $1.03 a gallon. I am going to sell my 12 Jeep Grand Cherokee (unleaded) and pick up a 14 model year Diesel to import into Ecuador...

On an interesting note, unleaded down there is around 2.50 a gallon. Glad to see Diesel is so much cheaper (subsidized).

Probably not ultra low sulfur and cheaper to make as well, I would guess.

"....pick up a 14 model year Diesel to import into Ecuador..." Yes, I would thoroughly check that out with "Jeep" to stay on the safe side of any engine warranty, may need to remap the fuel system, for "dirtier" fuel or ??, altitude.

Along the same line, Germany uses cameras at odd places to catch speeders. They have been doing this for years. This particular situation occurred in 1985 when I was living there. It was the topic of conversation at work for several days.
Radar Catches 'Miss Piggy' Speeding, Police Don't Know Who to Charge

The funny thing to us Americans is that within a few days of this occurrence we were advised through the chain of command that Germany passed a law immediately after this stating something to the effect that a car owner is responsible for any traffic incident whether the driver is recognizable in the photo or not. We never verified this for ourselved but assumed our chain of command was reporting accurately. We were all amazed at how quickly the German government reacted to this. Very efficient and seemingly definitive. Can't imagine anything happening that quickly in the US at either the federal, state, or local level. Beyond that, I expect the civil liberties union would put a stop to it.

I think that Nino needs all the engineers in BMW now to work out the next time that he can get into the same bed as the Mrs !

I wonder what the risk reward on that "trade" was ?

My car german hoopty still goes 130mph even with 200k miles on it. I still had quite a bit of pedal to get down to the floor too. Speedo goes to 160. My wrench says it will do that all day long and then some.

At 130 things were going by like they were solid. LMAO I scared the crap out of myself only because the top was down and the wind noise was to say the least fierce at that speed.

It's a bambi killer too. I hit a deer with it and there was not a mark on the car afterwards. I'll clarify though. It was just after dark and Bambi was already down in the middle of the road by the first vehicle that hit him/her. My eyes went to the emergency flashers on that car and the next thing I knew I was air born just like in the movie scenes..DOOOF Sailing through air going OMG I just killed bambi... Not a scratch. WHEWWWWW Lota bambi fur on the bottom of that bad boy though...

I'm telling you guys. Get yourself one of these cars with some of your trading winnings. They are around and very reasonable as far as price is concerned. Oh yea and when chicks get in these cars they just start taking off their clothes

Sometimes the picture becomes clearer once your are further away....






I am not fond of sports cars - although I once enjoyed driving a formula car on the Nürburgring.

Maybe, it is not the time to celebrate the nonsense of yesteryear?

Useless sport cars will disappear sooner and later, already today they look to me like dinosaurs.






United we stand, with our heads in sand! :car:
