In an effort to flesh out even more the fine people here at ACG, I decided to make this thread. There's ones for favorite movies and songs and musicians. So I thought I'd make one about what you drive. And also what your dream vehicle is!

To start off, I drive a 1991 Chevrolet K1500 Regular Cab. She's got a 6-inch BDS lift, 36x12.50 TSL Super Swampers, Grille Guard, toolbox, semi-truck horn, CD player, CB, and whip attena. Under the hood there's a 5.0L V8 mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. With 270,000 miles on her (and everyone put on by either my dad or I) she's still going strong. Like a Rock! :toast:

1996 Dodge Viper GTS Coupe is my daily driver and my 1985 C4 Covette in my back up. Can you believe that I have a wife and 3 kids? I am blessed with a very understanding wife.:thumb:

Both cars also go to the track and run laps sevral times a year. That's how I have avoided tickets for so long. Any other road racers or ex-road racers out there?

After my car business gets rolling, I'm thiking along the lines of an Audi A8L or S8. It'll be the first 4 seater that I have had in almost 20 years.

The other option is another 2 seater like a Mosler Photon. As you might have guessed, that cars are my passion (along with vintage military aircraft).

A Ducati 996, a Yamaha R1, a Yamaha XT600 trail bike and a cart powered by my Doberman Pinscher. All are 2-wheeled vehicles because nerds don't ride cars.

Its not exactly a rule yet but I'll try to dictate this to every nerd out there as soon as I become Nerd Nation dictator. :bowdown:
A thousand posts from now I think.

Nerds will understand, they don't want to be boring and normal like most cage people. :p

I don't drive! I live in Seattle proper and because of lousy traffic and proximity to stores I just take the bus or hoof it around town.

I really like the Honda Element (except for some of the dorky colors!)...one of these days when they become more plentiful I will have to buy a used model! :D

I only wish I don't have a car, I run most local places and then bug my parents for anything else. I failed Dr. Ed. 2. Not enough practice.

Now I bet that this has some impressive torque... I thought that those topped out at over 60 mph?

How many mpg do you get?:laugh: :laugh:

Sounds like we have quite a few youngsters around here.

They always were in the 45 mph road speed area.

Yeah on the engine takes the same amount of fuel whether its moving or not. That's another reason the Armor boys like to keep moving!
