    Dnvr -

    I use the "View New Posts" button and read what catches my fancy in the results. I'm continually amazed at the posts in the 50+ forum that appear to have absolutely nothing to do with age, IMO, and which would gain from receiving input from a larger audience. I'd guess the maybe only 1 in 10 really have anything to do with age.

    I think I've driven it 50 miles in the last 5 years...can't part company with her though. Sentimental attachments and whatnot.

    BTW - first one to correctly ID the pictured car wins a prize

    I just have a piece of junk subaru, but my dad has a 2006 Audi S4, as well as a 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo S (993) it was like the 4th to last air cooled Porsche to roll off the assembly line or something. He's the GM and part owner of a Audi / Porsche dealer though... so he is always driving cool stuff.

    I have a rocket limo. Don't have any pictures of it, though, since I usually keep it on Invisible to keep jerks from getting their greasy paw marks all over it.

    Wow, cars? Okay...mine is a 2005 Trailblazer, my wife's is a 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse. The Mitsu is most likely going to be traded-in sometime this year. Haven't decided yet what the replacement will be.

    My long term goal is to get a CAV GT40. Taking DannoXYZ's advice, I want to supercharge my crown victoria, which I'm guessing will probably happen this summer. I'd do it sooner, but construction is incredibly slow in the winter so I just don't have the extra cash. As soon as I'm done with college I plan to get a good condition 81-92 350 Camaro. I may instead get a Roush 427 for my Crown Victoria. My only problem right now is a lack of funds.

    Do you own or work for a construction company ?

    How does that o-zone hole feel down there? How about knowing that its the fault of people like yourself, people who embrace excess and pollute without paying any attention to the consequences? Oh wait, you probably dont care and will just let your grandchildren deal with the way the past generations have trashed this place. Piss off.

    oh gawd...

    more often then not, the amount of co2 emitted by classic or leisure cars are small cause they're driven so infrequently. Most get worked on more then driven. take your misplaced rage and focus it somewhere else cause it ain't doin no good here besides propping up more misinformation. There is a lot more waste going on in some many other places...

    Are you the guy that *****s about the amount of fuel nascar uses too? lets hear it.

    Cobra...yummy.

    By the way, CO2 is not linked to ozone depletion. That's CFC's, and his Cobra has no top, so CFC's are obviously not a problem in that regards, but thank you for sharing your cheerfullness with us. Anyhow, is this place trashed? I've noticed some messes here and there, but we're a long ways from having trashed it and we've even cleaned many things up. We are much more aware now of things that do cause problems than in the past, and we're constantly improving in that regard. Incidentally, there are some people out there who erroneously claim that global warming will destroy civillization. Unfortunately, we don't even know for certain if global warming is happening, much less if human factors are the primary influence. And with the worst predictions pointing to a maximum 5 degree global temperature rise in next 100 years, there's certainly no reason to think that humanity can not handle global warming, sea rise, etc even if it is occurring. I would discuss this further, but I get tired of re-iterating the same points over and over again every time someone mentions that one of their hobbies is cars. At this point there is cause for concern, but not condemnation.

    The energy burnt, and thus the emissions produced from running my computer over the last 5 years is far greater than the 50 miles I've driven in the Impala in the same time

    Hey, look at the cars he owns. He probably drives them less than 2,000 miles a year! Cars don't cause nearly as much pollution as commerical trucks, factories, etc.

    If you want to blame someone, please blame the guy who owns a beat up 1983 Ford Tempo that has black smoke flying out of his tailpipes.

    To the OP: Awesome collection! That Cobra looks hot! Hopefully when I'm in my 50s, I'll have enough disposible income to have a garage like that.

    I'm not ragging on you because you're making a fair comparision, but I really hate it when people complain about the amount of pollution commercial trucks produce. Products have to be moved, and moving 40,000 pounds of stuff in a truck that gets 5 miles per gallon is a lot more efficient than moving 1,000 pounds of stuff in a 40 Priuses that get 60 mpg each, more so if you count the energy consumed in producing them. And trucks that are blowing particulates out their stacks are either old and not driven much anyway, or they need maintenance. It is not some inherent flaw of commercial trucks.

    My interest in cars killed my interest in bicycles about 10 years ago, and as a result I became poor and fat. lol Fortunately, I eventually lost interest in cars and couldn't afford them anyway, so here I am. Now I just have a car to get me to work dependably, although if I worked closer to home I'd probably only drive it to work if conditions were simply miserable.

It will cost about 4 G's to supercharge my Crown Victoria. A good Camaro can be had for 10 thousand, and severly hot rodding my Crown Victoria could be done for about the same price. A CAV GT40 could be aquired for 70 grand new, and a reasonable price if used. None of that is out of reach for me in the future if things continue to work out like they are.
