I have a hybrid LOL. As anybody that know me know Im a Chevy man, but I have a 98 Mustang Gt with a Gm LS1 turbo project car.
Im however contemplating making in a nitrous car, It will have a trans-brake th350 with a 3500 coan converter, It will still be street ride but the 3 speed will hinder it the gas mileage some.

I am still looking. Waiting patiently on the right buy and price. I am looking for a 4th generation Z28 Camaro or Trans am preferably with an LS1, 6speed, and t-tops.

See now guys I am pretty much a Ford man myself. Although I do have an 87 IROC setting in the driveway now. I also have a 90 35TH anniversary Bird in the driveway.

IROC needs a fuel pump. Bird needs head gaskets but who in the world has time to work on anything right now.

At the moment I have a 2002 Z06 (Vettezilla) with about 470 horsepower at the rear wheels. I love it. I am looking for a nice Chevelle, C3 Vette, Fairlane, B-Body Mopar, or something along those lines. Im a car nut..I have had 16 cars in my life, lol..but Ill be keeping the ones I have currently. I also love motorcycles..I love my Crossbones, and Ive put a new Fatboy rear fender on it, a seat from a 1942 Harley military WLA bike, and right now its in the shop getting a front fender from a Heritage Springer and some old black beach bar handlebars..Here are pics of my car and bike (keep in mind, bike isnt finished yet. Ill post pics later when its completed)..

Im the same way bro. Im a Ford man too. But Ive loved all of the GM cars Ive owned over the years. Ive had a couple of Irocs (87 and 89), 3 Trans Ams (85, 87 GTA and 99 Ram Air), a 96 Z28, and a 92 Z28 that were all great cars. Ive owned some Mopar and a ton of Fords too..love 'em all..

I have a custom car.. I will not say the make or model.. But I figured since we now have a car thread I would put up a pic of 2 of it... It's a showcar, not really built for speed but it has a lot of mods done such as a turbo, coldair, strutbar, etc... Nothing too big.. But it's more body than brute.


More of a showcar, not a racecar.... But I like both. Used to drive an 07 Mustang.. Grabber orange.. It was a pretty nice car.

First, it depends on how big you are. If you are an average sized person (of which Im not lol) and you are just starting out, and can afford one, get a Harley Iron 883. They are around 8,000 new, look completely badass, and are excellent in holding their value. You can buy one now for 8 grand, then in three or four years, sell it for close to the same price you bought it..If you arent looking to spend that much money, a Honda Shadow 750, a Yamaha V-Star, a Suzuki Boulevard with an 800cc motor, and a Kawasaki Vulcan Classic (the 800cc's around 2005 are very nice and affordable bikes) are all attractive used buys. You can pick up any of these for around $4-5000 in good shape, and a few years old..Good luck bro!

Well I havent rode one since a buddy let me ride his around eight or nine years ago, but it was a really nice bike. Super easy to ride, very predictable, and a perfect beginner bike. Go for it..let me know if you get one..where do you live, if you dont mind me asking? Another thing bro, if youve not rode before, you can take beginner courses in just about every county, which are excellent. They give you a certificate, and you can take it and get your permit, instead of taking the test. I highly recommend doing that. They teach you everything you need to know about riding bikes. If you live near Hazard (for some reason I thought you did), there is a course located on 80 in Knott County.
