HA! His DD is a 1.8T GTI. The M3 is his mistress. About once a month he sneaks off to the "track" with her so they can have some "alone time".
Ah.. I have dreams of driving my car after it's been caged and gutted no A/C or power anything as a daily driver.
That dream will last about two days. Then suddenly you realize that you have no A/C or power anything! And you have climb into a race seat, buckle four belts, attach the steering wheel then realize that you can't reach your keys.
We are looking into getting a tow vehicle because driving this thing 4-5 hours to Thunderhill or even the 2 hours to Laguna Seca can get old, fast. Plus, there's too much to haul. Track wheels, jack, jack stands, tools, etc. If I don't go the track with him and haul stuff in my car, it's a really tight fit to get it all in his M3.
Oh I don't know.. I love riding in my buddies caged/gutted car. He has an ITR with obnoxiously loud exhaust yet the 5 hour ride to get it dyno'd wasn't bad. I couldn't outweigh how cool it was!
I got a new bike today, A yamaha R6.
I will still use my car for all major journeys but it's fun riding this when the weathers good.

Here's a pic of the "New" bike. I guess it's new, as I'm building it.

This looks like fun. gotta say There are some nice cars / bikes here but his stands out. I'd enjoy modding the shit out of it.
If I ever get through the city hall permits and zoning to get my garage up I think I'm going to buy a second safari minivan like mine and put a V8 into it amidship, I know it is nuts but I remember seeing "The Little Red Wagon" at the dragstrip. It was an early '60 dodge van / pickup style and I loved it.
HERES the right thread, sorry about that msp!
How are you liking the 2007? I test drove one recently and felt VERY cramped inside of it. I'm not even that tall (6'0"ish).
Even the 2005 is a bit cramped for me, but I manage ok, heh.
