There's some Freudian undertones to that post Tom.... Vrrrr, VrrrrroooomRobin said:Tom,
Your 69 GTO convertible dream is impressive. I was always impressed by the thrill, the rush of all that power under the hood of a really fast car...
Tom,TomDac said:I gave up on that childhood dream car a couple of years ago when I realized that I just don't have the room to keep something like that around and wouldn't want the maintenance isses of something that old as well as the gas guzzling of a big heavy musclecar...
So I thought about it and did some research.. I wanted a high performance convertible that could seat 4 people.
So my dream car became a 2004 BMW M3 Convertible!
333 horsepower from a 3.2 litre inline 6 cylinder normally aspirated engine. Handles like its on rails and gets 18 mpg in the city and 26 on the freeway. Plus it has all the bells and whistles of modern cars.
I'm a happy man!
Now if I won the lotto, I'd get a house with multiple car garage and have my 69 GTO too! Oh well.. the dream lives on, just not as realistic.
I had a 68 Firebird Convertible in highschool. Added Doug Nash swaybars, KYB shocks, new rims, low profile rubber. Had a lot of fun in that car. Both parked and rolling! Boy, come to think of it, I have not done four wheel drifts in years! Or, for that matter, had that kind of passion in a parked car.Muad'Dib said:Amen for singledom!!!
And speaking of impressing ladies, I had a new one over at my apartment the other day, errrr night, and she walked into the HT room, looked at some pictures that were sitting around (had been placed there before I was single so long ago) and walked out without ever having noticed the Logan's. I was like, "WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU!!! " Although I'm pretty sure she *&$@ a brick when she realized they were speakers....
Other things to spend money on???
If I had an income, I'd be driving one of the five cars that I would own:
1. a fully restored '69 GTO
2. a fully restored '68 Firebird 400
3. current issue Lightning
4. Bored out, turbo'd, manual 1998+ Cobra
5. new Porsche
If I had an income, I'd have bigger Logans and better gear
If I had an income, I'd be havin a lot more girls over.
Cars, Stereos, and Girls (not necessarily in that order). What else is there?
