what cars do you drive?
I know this is about bikes, but what about cars? I know some of you riders only have bikes, but some of us also have cars/trucks. What yah got?

Wife drives a Hyundai Tucson. I have an old Nissan 200SX I recently got cheap to drive as a daily beater car. AC works, which is a must in hot/humid Indiana.

Other cars. Dodge Interepid, Mazda 626, Oldsmobile, and my coolest car of all time was a Mitsubishi Galant VR-4. All-wheel-drive, turbocharged, a real sleeper car that was fast but didn't look like it. I'd like to get a truck soon or a Toyota 4 Runner.

In my stable there are 3 vehicles. First the one everyone here already knows, my 2004 yamaha v star 1100.

Second is my daily driver. Her name is DeeDee, kinda corny I know but it fits her. She's an imperial blue 2010 Chevy Malibu LTZ with the 2.4L 4banger.

Then my third vehicle is my pride and joy, the one I will be buried with me when I die, the vehicle that I will literally lay my life down for. His name is Daemon, he's a True Blue pearl metallic 2002 Ford SVT Lightning(#4601 of 4726). I call him "The Flying Brick", nearly every bolt-on you can find for it, 15lbs of boost, running the stock eaton, and pushing 426hp/530tq.

RE: what cars do you drive?
15lbs of boost is a lot. Pretty sweet ride. I bet that thing surprises some people....especially with that Torque. LOL. The thing about my Galant VR-4 was that it was AWD, and I could launch it hard. Fastest I ever ran it was around 12.6 in the 1/4 mile.

Mine was never modded this much: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHyu1h6xs...re=related

But it was the ultimate sleeper, and with the AWD I had some Yokohama snow tires I put on it once, and it was a Rally Car Tank in the snow.

15lbs is alot but the crapy inefficient eaton m112 gets heat soaked way too easily.

Yeah, AWD will give you a hole shot like nothing else, especially in a car that'll run a 12.6. So far my truck has run a personal best of 13.00, but that was back on my daily driver tune before I bought my Malibu. Now it's been retuned and I would expect 12.8-12.6 the next time I take it to the track. But that's not until next season, I have some suspension work to do before he touches a strip again.

Honda Accord and a Dodge Charger. The Charger is a little bit of a fun car! Looking into selling it though and getting something that is a bit more refined.

Mazda CX-7. It's not bad. I used to have a Mazda 626 hatchback. Little 4 cylinder. Man that car was a tank. 5 speed, and could move a little, too.

RE: what cars do you drive?
1999 Chevy Astro van (family funster). Its been back and forth from east coast to west coast, KC to Montana and back several times. Poor girl just sits in jealousy since I got my bike. She's been good to us, very dependable. Keeping her around as long as I can for shopping trips and hauling large loads.
