    I love cars! What is everyone driving? I got inspired to post this from the other thread...I've had 6 or 7 cars in the last three years, so here are my latest three (not including my wife's '09 G8 GT). Wife says I have to keep this one for awhile, but I might buy a Z06 if I go back to Afghanistan.

    2010 Camaro SS LS3 426hp 6spd (I have a new license plate for it now instead of RLYFAST I have EX3LR8, and I also deleted the mufflers):

    I like the Scion TC - there's a very nice white one on our block with aftermarket wheels. I'm infamous with my neighbors for my oddball cars. Before the two above, I've had, since 2000:

    1966 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow
    1983 Porsche 911SC
    1983 Porsche 944
    1983 Porsche 928S (all at the same time)
    2003 BMW 325i
    2003 BMW Z4 2.5i
    2009 Smart Fortwo

    You're wrong - this is the Anything Goes forum, and says right under the title it is for talking about non-iPad related topics. You're more than welcome to start the above topics, if that interest you. Not really my speed...

    There are currently about 30 different forums on this website for discussing various aspects if the iPad; perhaps you can clarify how a single forum for discussing oth interest, and a single thread discussing cars, is a problem?

    I honestly don't understand. As I pointed out, there are 30 forums for talking about ipads and one for talking about unrelated topics. If all 5000 members post non-iPad threads in the Anything Goes forum, what impact does that have on the other forums? If you're not interested, you simply don't subscribe.

    And I can't speak to your forum experience, but I currently participate in about 20, all discussing various topics. Every single forum has an off-topic forum. One of my car forums has a thread dedicated solely to discussing the iPad, in fact, as does one of my book forums. I've never been on any forum where no one ever talks about anything besides the prime topic. And since the creators of this website provided the Anything Goes forum, I'm guessing they know that as well as anyone.

    You don't want to talk cars, tv shows, or anything else that's unrelated to iPad's (and, seeing as how that's your line of work, that could be seen as a little self-serving). That's no problem. Anything Goes is a separate forum and you need never visit it again.

    This is the ANYTHING GOES subforum, if you want to talk about iPads there are plenty of threads in the iPad specific subforums. Go bother people there.

    I'm a sports car lover too, but I have to say, there are very few American cars I'm into. Most American sports cars are too heavy and don't handle all that well. The Z06 is a good exception, I like the new Camaros as well, but they are just too big and heavy. I prefer to drive hard in the corners, not so much drag racing.

    Saying that, I'm a big Japanese car fan, my current car is 1990 Nissan Skyline GT-R. In it's current state it's 530hp (which is a fairly mild tune for these cars) and the majority of the suspension components have been upgraded as well.

    Thanks, it's a long term project. It's an old car, so I'll be completely rebuilding it eventually. I'll be coming back to the US from Japan for a while around 2015, and by then it will be 25 years old, which means I can legally bring it into the US with me.

    The power is enough to be fun, but not an all out drag car. It will run a mid-11 second 1/4 mile, but that's not really what I'm into, it handles amazingly with the all-wheel drive system.

    Nice Camaro Mathew, and thanks for starting this great thread on Cars.

    By the way, here is a picture of mine:
    [​IMG]

    I love the exhaust modifications. I hate that a stock Mustang GT pulls up next to me and sounds better than my car. I looked into some stainless headers, but the service department at my dealer told me they would void my warranty. Did you have any issues with warranty and removing the mufflers?

    And here is my other toy:
    (hopefully I don't get flamed for posting an ATV in a Car thread on an iPad forum)

    And to everyone else!! Nice Rides!!!!

    Exactly. This really started from a thread about an iPad case, which
    I said "to each their own but personally I think are ugly" (they were asking for opinions)...then he came in and said (in the same thread) "Well your Camaro is ugly" and I joked and said he didn't know what a nice car was then...and then he complained because I was talking about my car...seriously??? Did he not realize he started it? :confused: :p

    Pretty sad, actually.

    I'm an anything that goes particularly fast fan, not just American cars. I can appreciate any nice car...I love your Silvia. I am not one of those "only American cars" kinda guy.

    I owned all Japanese cars prior to my Corvette but when I drove the Vette...I'm sorry but nothing compares to that nice big revving engine (just my opinion). I do miss the handling, a bit, but I can upgrade that and to be honest...I'm more of a go fast than an autocross guy. But just to prove I haven't owned all American cars...

    Here was WRX, with modifications it was about as fast as my Corvette. But just not as fun to drive:

    And my Mazda Protege5, which, for the longest time, was featured on the Mazdaspeed section of MazdaUSA.com...but after about 2 years was pushed out by newer features...I had a bunch of sponsorships but most importantly I had a custom, one off turbo kit:

    HAHAHAHA

    Anyhow, liking the Camaro?

    The muffler delete was only 200 bucks. No HP gains to be expected, but it sounds like it should and got rid of those God awful mufflers.

    I haven't decided what I am going to do with the car yet for sure. Now that I am staying in the military I am exempt from emissions for another 10 years until I retire, so I might just modify this. That being said...if I go back to Afghanistan I might come back and buy a red new Z06. So I'm sort of holding off until I get to my new unit in October to see what the deployment plan, if any, is.

    There was a red 2009 Z06 that just hadn't sold (so zero miles) that they offered me with rebates and discounts and everything for only $62,000. I was so tempted to buy it 12k under asking price but my wife and I were JUST about to get married and the timing was not good.

    I love classic cars too. But the Camaro is my daily driver, and I want a little more creature comforts with my daily driver.

    Just ignore everything iPadOne says, I started doing that shortly after I read a few of his posts, it has made everything much nicer.

    I like the STi, not so much a fan of the MazdaSpeeds though. I agree that a sports car is great, regardless what country it's from. It just seems America likes to build sledgehammers, Japan likes to build scalpels. I prefer a scalpel over a sledgehammer :)
