    I'm a huge car fanatic and was wondering what kind of car you drive.

    Here's mine: http://www.cardomain.com/id/dinan325ic

    It's a 1994 BMW 325i convertible with a 1995 3.0L BMW M3 engine with Active Autowerkes' Stage 1 Generation 3 turbo kit running 7psi of boost.

    Currently my project is to lower the compression of the engine, so that I can run more boost.

    My goal is to reach 400rwhp and right now i'm at 300.

    Cool car...I see that you are from Los Altos Hills. I grew up in Los Altos. Small world.

    Harrumph. * grasps lapels with hands *

    If my dad had been alive to give me a car on my 19th birthday it would have been up on blocks in the back yard, stripped and rusty.

    "Um, thanks, pop."

    "Yeah. Now get it out of my yard."

    Currently drive an adapted 2002 Buick Rendezvous CXL painted to my specifications of emerald green. I also have part of an '81 Buick Skylark which is now a sub-sub-compact (not all brick walls are your friends) and I still maintain my first car a '62 Skylark-hardtop which is a strange shade of blue, it is fully operable alhtough I rarely use it. I acquired this vehicle in return for some sexual favors ( I was a very screwed up youth and would do just about anything).

    Yes, it's true I love Buicks and I've never owned anything other than Buick.

    Seriously, I drive a 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan.

    Onslow, in the mid-60's I had a roomie in college who drove a new Skylark convertible. * eyes glaze as he remembers those topless double dates *

    A 2005 Chrysler Town and Country Limited minivan and a 2005 Chevy Malibu Maxx.

    They used to be a LOT more exciting. Not very exciting now, huh?

    I own a 2003 Cadillac CTS and a 1999 Lincoln Mark VIII. I do like the new STS and am considering doing a trade-in. :)

    BonaDrag_Elizabeth: I have a 1999 or 2000...not sure really Audi A4. It is my baby. I got her brand new..well I paid for half and my parents paid for the other.

    I've actually seen the Audi TT which I want to get if my funds allow me. :)

    wow, someone that doesn't own an American car!! hahahahaha

    tallonem - how do you like the new GTO? I remember all of the hype about it. Is it all that? My friend told me that Chevrolet is planning on puting an even larger engine or a more powerful one in there.

    Technically, Volvo is owned by Ford. :blink:

    BonaDrag_Elizabeth - nah, not overlooked. It's just that everyone who posted posted an American car of come sort.

    I have nothing against American cars. Just something I noticed.

    I have a Mazda 626, which at the time of production was the only Mazda that was built in the states.

    Actually the GTO is a Pontiac, might have a Chevy engine but the car is a Pontiac.

    1991 Chevy Cavalier. The old school one with the rubber strip guards on the doors. My eyes sparkle over when I think of my to-be 2005 Jeep Liberty Sport.
