    Here's my little FD. Not 450+ bhp like our esteemed Japanese friend but still a bunch of fun. Lowered damn near to the ground with a laundry list of engine mods, Greddy FMIC, and stock turbos on stock boost, 302whp. Don't have any pics of my 06 F-150 or the VFR on my workstation.

    Nice. I had to get rid of my headers since I'm coming up on California smog time.... still sporting my Corsa cat backs, Vararam intake and some superchips tune.

    Well I have four two wheelers (two are bicycles) and one four wheeler.

    Mine is a 2000... but 86 obviously has the best TV commercial.

    Before my taurus I had an 06 WRX. Figured AWD turbo would be just as fun as a bike. Nope. Sold it, bought a house and bought a ford taurus.

    Great car just as you have seen in the youtube video. It takes me and my bicycle to far away places to ride and took me to Maryland to buy my VFR :)

    And let's not forget... Mess with the bull, and you get the horns.

    Well, being a father of 2 younger kids (5 and 7) the wife and I wanted something fuel efficient and roomy. I hate to say minivan but heh, it's got 2 sliding doors so................ A 2009 Mazda 5 as a daily commuter. Being a self employed business owner, the Mazda also doubles as a shop customer shuttle when required. Most of the time during riding season, the Mazda lives at the shop and the bike is the daily commuter. Winter time, well.......

    The other cage is the bush truck. My wife's daily driver is the indiscreet metallic beige 98 Chev Tahoe. The kids love going for drives in the sticks on the weekends and my wife and I are happy to oblige their requests. It's usually covered in about a 1/2 inch of mud. That way we don't have to worry about scratching the paint.

    Since i do Paintless dent repair for a living, I get to pick up and return just about everything under the sun on a daily basis, so the desire to drive a new car is fed on a daily basis. Today I got to drive a 2013 Aston Martin DB9S, a few various Benz's, a 2014 Jaguar F/Type Coupe, and a 2012 Honda Odyssey." The positive side, "I got to drive all of me without having to pay the extraordinary cost of ownership."

    Life sucks........ LOL. After I finished the door dings in the Aston Martin, the owner had to take his car to the body shop to repair the lower splitter on the front bumper that he ripped off when backing out of a parking stall at the local mall a few days earlier. Apparently he misjudged the distance to the parking block and the retaining rods on the block were sticking up a bit from the top of the block. Front bumper only costs about $12,000 plus the cost of painting so he was not looking forward to the repair. OUCH!!

    Right now my daily driver is a 1987 BMW M6.

    I plan to rebuild my 1973 BMW 2002 and make that my daily driver come next Spring.

    I have a Cadillac CTS which I'm thinking of selling and buying a cheaper car and get another bike for the difference in $$ (because me like most of us here care more for the bike than a car) ATTACH=CONFIG]28784[/ATTACH] 20140829_070049.jpg

    Daily driver is 2010 Civic. My daily commute is 120 miles round trip so fuel economy is a big priority. Not a bad car but nowhere near as much fun as the SVT Focus it replaced.

    The "other" car is 1992 F150 I purchased new in Oct of 92.

    I keep going round & round with getting rid of it. I never really drive it anymore. I did some minor restoration work on the chassis a few years ago. Body & interior are in excellent shape for their age, engine is still strong.

    Some pretty fine wheels listed here, You're a spoilt bunch!

    Particularly that little Alpha of Squirrelman's, tis a thing of beauty indeed!

    My non-riding miles are spent in a Citroen Berlingo van... as pictured in case any of you haven't beheld the sheer magnificence of one before!

    Still, with all 75 of it's raging horsepower *ahem*, it does mean I can afford to keep my bike, so for that at least it's got something going for it...

    40 years ago I had an ID19, then a DS21 Pallas (Mentalist car), loved those cars.

    Here's my favorite cage. I have too many to even start listing all the vehicles I have. 2001 Audi TT Quattro 225HP package turbo 1.8L, 6 speed standard transmission. I've had it for three years this week and only put 30,000 miles on it.

    Here's my other ride, not quite a cage but gets about the same mileage at the VFR750 but I don't have a speed limit and cruise around at 100 MPH without having to follow the roads!

    My favourite is my restored 1974 Ford F250. But i do like my 70 Mustang Mach1 as well. We have a 2008 Dodge diesel 3500 for hauling the camper and towing the boat. We have not taken the new camper off of it since we got it 3 years ago and use it just for boating and/or camping trips. The usual daily driver is the company pickup a 2015 F150 but it is boring.

    Most of the time, I use my VFR though...
