I just saw a baby blue Saab Sonnett, it reminded me of this thread.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Tony have you checked out the Golf R? It's quite a bit out of my price range, unfortunately. My goal is to not exceed 26k MSRP. By the way, man. I've got a good friend/neighbor with a nicely modded LS2 GTO. Got to drive it the other day and I must say. I miss my old goat. Do you? I do greatly miss ...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Anyone here have experience with buying very high mileage cars? A good friend is hard on cash and is car got stolen. Are LS400 good buys for less than $3000 with more than 200k miles?

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

So I've become a flashaholic. I've learned the value of better lights when I stopped using crappy Walmard headlamps while camping, and switched to a few Princeton Tec lights that I've had over the years. This was maybe 5-6 years ago. Fast forward to a few months ago. One of my PT headlamps crapped ...

Re: 2015 Mustang v 2015 Subaru WRX

Really the only way to know is to test drive them and see. If you can get a Ecoboost Mustang for cheap ($25k), it certainly isn't a slouch. You can hit mid 12s with just a plug in tune and DRs. Thats on par / a little faster than a stock 5.0. Keep in mind the 5.0 has a much higher ceiling, but if yo...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

I want it, but the price will ensure that I won't be able to justify it. I'm most likely going to end up with a Fiesta ST like you, or maybe a Focus ST, depending on my size needs and opinions when I drive both. That purchase, however, is still a couple years off. Yea, I really like everything abou...

Re: Carjacking thwarted by stick shift

Something exactly like this happened at the hospital near me. A med student got carjacked, the robbers wanted him to stay in the car and teach them how to drive stick. If I remember correctly they found the car up a curb a few blocks down.
