    Hey guys I was just wondering if there were any car guys here? I am a car nut. I love all kinds domestics, imports, exotics. I am really into imports but that is mainly because they are affordable and the aftermarket is going nuts with them right now. I would love to have an old Mopar but its just not feisable right now. Maybe few years down the road. I just graduated college so I really don't have a car to work on right now since I am still driving around my dodge, but I hope to get a new car this summer. I am looking at the Subaru WRX but nothing is set in stone.

    Anyway I just thought I would ask to see who shares my other interest besides music.

    You should do a search...there are car threads here pretty often we had a couple going recently.

  3. Well, we just finished that mega thread about which car is the best (I STILL think a Porsche 904 beats everything for performance AND looks) Mike N is a race car driver (dragster, actually) plus there are several of us, me included, who work on our own cars.

    Just do a search for car threads. My god, that's a LOT of answers!!! We talk about cars almost as much as we do women and basses!!:D

    Rock on

  9. Let me interest you in a well-travelled 94 Grand Marquis. Why you could bond with it every day...since it has now truly entered the "Fix Or Repair Daily" realm. What an opportunity... to become one with the zen-like world of replacing every bloody thing on the beast..... :D

    ive got a bagged 98 chevy s10 w/ 18's. I posted pics of it on a show your vehicle thread. I have always gone back and forth on whether i spent my time/money on my truck or on bass. I still love my truck, and enjoy the hobby. I go to car/truck shows, and work on mine with my friends. But I realized that playing music is on a whole different level. i spend my time now on really trying to learn rather than just messing around. I wanted to learn something and be good at it rather than just own something that looked cool.
    But i still love custom vehicles!

    I'm pretty heavy into drag racing and lifted trucks. And like Brad mentioned, I turn wrenches for a living.

    I'm not much for the import scene, though.
     
  18. I could kiss you!...

    but i won't because the guys down at the lube rack would just get jealous!

    I grew up a car nut but after 12 years of racing, I completely burned myself out on the performance aspect of the sport. I can talk a good game now but the fire isn't there anymore.

    Now I'm trying to figure out how to best market an old Dodge motorhome I've got to sell. It's got a nice running 440 in it but the whole thing is only worth about $1500. So, do I aim at selling to a hunter or surfer as a weekend getaway, or do I target a rabid Mopar fan with a 71 Challenger in his basement that's screamin' for something with a few more geeters than the 318 in his Dart?
