it'd be better if there was an outdoor version and the hood opened to reveal a BBQ grill/smoker

Some say he never blinks, and that he roams around the woods at night foraging for wolves.

All we know is he's called the Stig and he loves the Alfa 4C.

Looks like your grandmother's car but it will go 0-60 in under 8 and do the quarter in under 16 seconds (stock).



Hard to find one that has not been tweaked to hell.

meh, my 94 Integra GSR did it in 15 seconds flat with a bone stock engine and the mildest of suspension mods... back when I was into that sort of thing. A better RT would have netted me a 14.x second quarter.

Father Divine's Duesenberg J. I'm not sure if it belongs in this thread. It is not a beautiful car. However it is a Duesenberg.


Something better looking from the Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg concern:
A Auburn Speedster in front of 2 Duesenberg Js.

The heyday of Touring Car racing. That's what got me into the world of modifying compact import cars, seeing the NATCC (RIP) Neuspeed Honda Accord driven by Randy Pobst on the cover of Sport Compact Car magazine at Walmart one day back in 1996 when I was in the 10th grade.

Belongs. This has long been the "Awesome cars" thread, more so than beautiful.

It was a good time for me too, we had the World Touring Championships every weekend here on free to air TV. I remember the Honda's too.

Screw that. I want to be Jason Statham.

That Type II looks like the '61 crewcab I used to have. Less rusty, though.
