Does the car , truck?, SUV etc. etc. and its co lour and age say anything about the kind of person you are, especially if you have a pet name for it.
All I'll say is i probably drive the most outrageous car on MM
GlennaB write: I drive several different cars. I usually keep about 6 personal cars. Including 1 or 2 4x4 trucks. Got to have my truck. I like to switch cars around when I don't want certain people to know where I am or where I have been by what I am driving.
Glenna, I knew it! All you want is to get your foot on my accelerator. 365horses of turbo charged diesel (w/super chip) just does something to a woman. Oh yeah! That is why I pick them up in my Honda, I want a woman excited by me not my truck. Man just when you think you found one just a little different. Gloom & doom, Oh MY! lol.
Dont get me wrong i love Italian exotica, they are just very expensive, very fragile and cost a fortune to run.
What you may not realise is that the major Japanese car makes produce another layer on top of what is exported, but being right hand drive we in the UK import these amazing cars, so i ended up with a bespoke super car, actually known in the far east as the Jap Ferrari, that's cheap to run and own, turned more heads in continental Europe that any of the German or Italian stuff and if 500bhp isn't enough i had a friend running a Supra with 863 at the wheels and fitted with launch control and still using the auto box, would hit 60 in around 3 secs, all for around $75k not bad for a car he used to drive to work in.
If you think Dan is a 'petrol head' you'd be right
Hi GB The Toy GZ i imported after driving what by many was considered the best all round car in the world, it was also a Jap import a Lexus SC400 Limited Edition the top of the range and not sold outside Japan. The engine 4ltr V8 had been tuned by TRD and the car had fully adjustable suspension for both height and stiffness, it had a touch screen TV which controlled many of the interior functions including a 13 spker digital hifi with 14 CD changer all this in 1992 , so i had to find something very different hence the customised Supra with 265 x18 x30 on rears and 235 x 18 x35 on front and a 6" titanium pipe back, and very large twin aerofoil across the rear.
Never let me down and cost a fraction of the cost of Italian exotica which couldn't keep up with the Toy anyway
I had the same problems, too many cameras in the UK but used to blast the beast from Bournemouth thro the forest to the M27 motor way especially when leaving early in the morning, 3 places i could get over 160 when no traffic around. The autobahns were fun, the German drivers very good, as none had seen a special Supra GZ before , even the Porsches and big BM's would move over to see what the hell was waiting to blow them into the weeds, but as you say , Ive seen some horrendous accidents in Germany, and the Med coasts as bad as tired holiday makers try to find out which road or turning to take. Had to leave the 'beast' behind she had too little ground clearance to get over the high kerb lines over here, a shame, but in have been pulled over for speeding too often over here
I never speed but I do a lot of high speed driving in Italy and Germany where it is legal. HSD is anything over 120MPH.
The UK is no longer any fun (cameras) except in the highlands but there you suffer the same problem as in GA, SC & NC where the deer don't carry auto insurance.
My highest clocked speed by a police camera was 168MPH in my custom built BMW. I was headed from Schipol airport south and decided to give it one last blast as I was relocating to the USA in a week and changing her for an S Class Merc because all of my American friends told me that my "race car" would be stolen within a few weeks of arrival.
My current "black streak" clocked 148MPH at the Texas Motor Speedway one quiet Thursday afternoon.
For those who like to street race like idiots I would tell you of the fatal crash that I witnessed on the autobahn but it is too gruesome for this site. I will though say that three families were wiped out by one child in his late 40's.
B&B Peggy Sues secondhand Walkers dont have any rubber to smoke or have you upgraded to a pogo stick with a high performance elastic hydrogas adjustable super bounce 'boing, boing ' with go faster stripes
Remember last summer on the south coast of the UK i had the roof of and the car gleaming for a Red Open Sports car display later that evening as i sat at some traffic lights a pretty young professional lady pulled up along side in her Merc conv. battle wagon, she glanced over i smiled and said you like?
she smiled back ' Bet the performance is phenomenal' yep i said goes like the clappers fantastic grip accelerative thrust like you've never experienced, Wow she said, Yep i said and the car's performance isn't bad either, the lights changed , she blushed to the roots and stalled her car as she disappeared in rubber smoke, oh dear, is rubber a naughty word over here
Hi Glenna. Ive been tied up the last few weeks, but cut free to play awhile, lol , So OK you've been around the trade awhile, what does a 500hp customised GZ Supra, you cant buy over here, with personalised plates say to you. She'll do nearly 200mph and the driver often, when the road is clear takes her up over the 160's , with roof on, and would add , he's passed an advanced drivers test, clean license and not been in a moving vehicle accident for over 30 yrs. also from a practical point of view.$250 gets her serviced every 6000 miles, not bad when you need to spend a fortune to service Ferrari's sooner and at eye watering costs.
I have never ridden a Depends Peggy but that is probably because I had the good sense never to buy a Corvette for which my nickname is the haemorrhoid maker or is it just the age of their "second childhood" owners that has that affect?
