Obviously we all have something in common with our good taste in motocycles and I'm sure many of us are into performance or specialty cars in one form or another too. Just curious as to what they may be.....Mine is a 1981 Triumph TR8, rebuilt 3.5 liter v8 with higher compression, hotted up cam, and a 4bbl carburetor. Any one else?:rolleyes:

2010 WRX Wagon 5 spd in WRB. Intake, Turbo-back, and a few other mods for something like 300ish HP and ~320 Tq. Fun to drive in the snow when the bike goes away for the winter!

well, I design instruments for cars - loads of them are dream cars, mainly small volume car builders.
I could name drop.......... Nobel M12 & M600, Rossion cars ,Morgan cars, Caterham, westfield, plus many others.

Although I dont own them its the closest I get.

Sadly, I no longer have a car of any sort. I have my truck, an '05 Dodge 1500 quad cab hemi which I need for work, and the wife's company crapwagon/minivan aka '11 Chevy Traverse (leaves a bad taste in my mouth just typing it!)

Last car was an '08 BMW 335 that served as a daily driver/track toy. Ran it at Laguna, Sears, and T-hill here in NorCal.

Back before I moved to California, I was a huge Alfa Romeo nut. Technically I still hold title to several, but they're long dead living on a farm in Kentucky now. Then I was racing a GTV6 and street driving a string of Milanos, GTV6s, Alfettas, and one Spider.

When/if the yachting world ever picks up again or I change jobs, my next interesting car will likely be either a Mini (if I need a fun beater), a used Cayman (if I just want a 'normal' car), or a heavily mod'ed Wrangler JK (I've had a Jeep thing for years but have been able to keep a lid on it thus far...last thing I need is another giant money/time pit)
