Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 100k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

26 minutes ago, Drak3 said:

Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

That looks quite familiar

 

I wish I had 2 of them like this

Is that a shifter cup holder?

If a horse throws you off you get right back on it if you're able. Same with cars and bikes and all sorts of things.

I've had better luck with horses not trying to hurt me. :P

Going back at some point. Maybe after i've got my motorcycle license.

Going to the SCCA solo national championship would be pretty awesome... wish I had money to do that. Not just to get there and pay the entry fee but also for modifying my car to the limits of the stock class lol. 

 

Even then I'd have to deal with MR2 spyders and mazdaspeed miatas there. Rip

 

on a positive note I literally have family in Lincoln, Nebraska, which is where it is held. 

 

Not that I'm actually going. Would be cool tho

 

 

@warmmilk SCCA should make a "lifted Miata" category pahahaha

Well like for the vw guys we weld metal to the hood to make it that way. So we can go super aggressive with it or not.

It's been well over a year since I was last on the LTT forums but it's good to see this thread is still going strong. As far as cars go since I left I've had 3 early Holden's fall into my lap.

 

  • The ute is a 1978 HZ one tonner with a 253 and a supra five speed
  • The two door is a 1970 LC Torana with a 202 and Aussie four speed 
  • The black four door is a 1993 VP SS (Not really an early Holden but it's older than I am) with an injected 304 with an auto
