So anyone on here a car enthusiast? Post what you have and what mods are done and how long you've had it or something special about it. I'll start:

So I have a dark grey metallic 2004 Mustang GT 40th Anniversary ed. with 55k on the odo. It is Vortech supercharged putting down 402 rwhp and 412 ft. lbs of torque. Lowered 1.8" in front and 1.5" in rear. 315's out back on staggered rims. It's my DD and I've had it for about a year, by far my favorite out of the other cars I've owned.

Anyone else?

I thought about getting a 370z, but might wait another couple of years as they are a little more expensive than I originally thought. lol

Yeah I did too but I'd miss the sound of my V8. I owned a 2004 Audi S4 with the 4.2L v8 and it was pretty fun but it broke down every 2 weeks. Got rid of it after a couple months >.< I'm on Horizon atm lol.

As a kid I loved the looks of sports cars and the idea of zooming around in them at high rates of speed.....however, as I grew older and more pragmatic, I realized I was becoming much more of a truck guy. I've now gotten to the point where I feel very uncomfortable when "forced" to be in a car, even as a passenger, after driving trucks for so long. I'm also of the mind, especially when seeing post apocalyptic scenarios presented, that trucks are far more useful and would actually get you where you need to go much quicker. Yeah, they don't go as fast, but they can go many places cars cannot and don't get stuck nearly as easily......kind of comparable to the story of the tortoise and the hair. I'm not telling that long story, look it up if you're not familiar with it....lol

Oh, to the point of the thread, I have a 2001 Mercury Mountaineer with about 50K miles, an offroad package and all wheel drive, with tow-package and winch. The winch is the only mod I've made to it, it needed nothing of significance beyond that. My back-up vehicle is a Harley Davidson...

I have to say I strongly agree with you. I'm 22 and I am starting to realize cars aren't as practical as a truck these days. I mean I live on my own with my girlfriend and she has a new 2013 Ford Escape so we can haul small amounts of things back and forth but I feel as tho I should see if I could trade my stang for a 2000-2010 diesel. Seems more practical for now until i can afford to have a weekend fun car like my stang is now. Why diesel? because I love the turbo sound haha :) my stang's supercharger whistles around 2,100 rpm's and it's glorious! :D

ahh yeah gearhead topic..

i just have a 06 Sonata haha i run it like it's a dang rally car though haha!!

good buddy of mine is a huge diesel nut. always going on and on about cummings turbo diesel bla bla bla haha!!

Horizon is fun for sure but gotta admit i tend to stick to the muscle cars over any of the other cars..wish they'd put out an 80s pack... feature some nice 80s era Cameros.. or a Monte Carlo SS with some T tops...

Lmao a sonata huh? Well as long as you're having fun lol. Yeah I wish I had a pre-1974 muscle car. In CA the emissions prevent me from running without cats so my car is quite tame in normal driving conditions. Yeah I have buddies who love their diesels and going on about all that crap too, I just don't like when I am driving around and some rich kid in a lifted diesel pulls up next to me trying to race cuz he thinks my car is stock lol. I smoke him but I just don't like that level of arrogance haha.

Now that's an off-road beast! Sick! I'm not much of a Chevy guy but my dad and I restored a 1973 Jeep CJ5 when I was 15 as my 1st car but it only had a straight-6 engine and a 4 speed grearbox with a granny 1st gear, bad boy topped out at 60! My dad knew I'd drive fast so he didn't do the 302 small block ford swap I wanted haha. But it was metallic orange with a 2" lift and has some 32" super swampers, fun jeep but we sold it a couple years ago since it was just collecting dust since I had a 96 mustang GT I bought at the time.

Nice i am a car nut (love me a ford i've had 2 XD's one was a genuine esp both with 351 one auto and the esp was a manual. the auto was also hot pink at one stage). but now i drive a series 2 RX7 1982 model with series 5/4 motor and running gear pushing out nearly 400hp. its fast and if i built it today i would never get it engineered and registered because of the new rules. im saving up for an 80's falcon ute or a hilux as my runnabout now.

really like the purple falcon, i nearly bought one exactly like that (the outside) in cronulla like ten years ago. bathurst rims = classic, u just need the red wall tyres. Not trying to be rude but honda's are for girls.

i wil say this about my car..its an 06 SE and has the 3.0 or 3.1 and the girl will run haha. still doesn't hug the ground like my old grand am did haha. somday i'll get my very own Chevelle or El Camino but i'll deal with what i got for now haha. I'll never be heavy into the tuner cars.. 6'4'' doesn't always fit well in small vehicles. gotta admit since 1985 and my first time seeing Back To The Future i've been in love with Toyota Trucks

Anywho, my stang had about 10k invested including the vortech supercharger kit. Mostly supporting mods like injectors, fuel pump etc etc.. It has subframe connectors to help launch stability but the 4:10's in the rear end make the tires spin all the way through 4th under WOT, I need to get some drag radials or get me some 3:73's which most guys get. I really wanna post pics but it'll have to wait till' I get home lol.

@ Zara - Awesome u even got the bathurst globes on the runna about to. jealous. i watched the start up vid and there was an allan moffet video afterwards he is one of the reasons i like fords and rx7's he raced them both. My rx7 is an aussie model with an import motor that was rebuilt here in oz. and it is a monster bro it u really have to pick the moments you put you're foot down and it is stupid loud. but that falcon sounded sweet gotta love the sound of a V8.

i have no pics on file. the only pics i have are for engineering purposes. thats what im doing this weekend washing my car and taking photo's.

i dont know what the car scene is like in vic but im in sydney but grew up in a country town on the south coast and i've always been surrounded by car culture. i go down the road and people are like sick car bro and mums give me filthies. especially when i get out and leave it running in underground carparks (turbo timer). once this really nice old lady comes up to me and sez "excuse me did you know you left your car going" (if i couldn't hear it i would have to be deaf) anyway i thought that was funny (u probably had to be there or just hear my car in a carpark)
But yeah i love falcons and rotaries. not exclusivly but they would be my favourites oh and vals to, always wanted a two door VG. in my car club (SSCC) one of the fellas has built a perfect replica of moffats 1982 RX7. its awesome. found it on youtube - but my car has more power.

Yeah I read that somewhere, falcon being replaced the Taurus. I do like the new v6 twin turbo ecoboost in the AWD SHO version though. Yeah in 2014 or something, they plan on making the mustang more global. But, I don't know how they are going to manage keeping the mustang looking like a mustang without compromising its signature styling and it's American market.

I was driving a 2005 Dodge Magnum R/T. Station wagon with a Hemi in it. Had the 5.7 Hemi under the hood, CIA, Diablo Sport tuner, SRT suspension, and SLP loudmouths. I miss the car, truth be told. I ended up selling it to my dad though, lol.

After that vehicle, I bought a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee that I have modded the hell out of. It's got a six and half inch IRO long arm lift on it, BFG 35s, and some KMC wheels, custom fabricated front bumper, winch capable of pulling 8500 lbs, Dana 33 in the front and a Dana 40 in the rear, front disconnects, SYE, Eaton E-locker, CB for obvious purposes with a custom fabricated mounting bracket for the antenna, painted grille and lower trim around the vehicle, and HID headlights. :P

So as you can see, pretty long list lol.

I really I could get my hands on a falcon here in the states, I love v8's in 4 door sedans. Like your Holden Monaro (our Pontiac gto, g8) I had an Audi s4 with the 4.2l but Audi's are so unreliable :(

Yeah man those GTO's are a blast to drive, and they are pretty quick stock so you don't need much! My 04 stang made 260 stock at the crank so I needed some extra giddy up and after the Vortech kit I'm making 461hp at the crank, much better :D

Yeah and same here, I appreciate camaro's just as much as mustangs. I don't know why so many muscle car guys fight with each other when the import scene is coming at us head on lol.
Although, camaro owners always try to get me to run them on the streets, they think my car is stock since there's not fancy body mods or extra badges besides the GT and front chin spoiler. Needless to say, they end up in my rear view looking surprised at the next set of lights ;)

I really I could get my hands on a falcon here in the states, I love v8's in 4 door sedans. Like your Holden Monaro (our Pontiac gto, g8) I had an Audi s4 with the 4.2l but Audi's are so unreliable :(

Really your in the states? i thought you were in Victoria cause of the plates on the car. Holden is the enemy you cant own a falcon and say nice things about holden. you're supposed to hate them. Holden is GM. But yeah a monaro is a 2 door the 4 door is called a commodore. google it for images. Audi's sound nice there just to expensive though in australia.

Haha yeah man Vortech's sound awesome, and it's nice because you can cruise around town and not even touch boost until like 4k+ rpms to save some gas. I also have a water/**** kit installed so when it injects, it's putting in like 116 octane gas and feels like a little nitrous boost. I have the stock midpipes with the stock 4 cats coupled with some Borla Stingers. Sounds timid and modest at cruising speeds but under WOT it's amazing! Haven't heard the ATAK mufflers yet.

you guys are talking about the new gtr yeah (just wondering cause i was only talking about the 32 and you can get them for under 30k in australia and i just noticed you guys mentioned 100k).

side not the new manufacturers that are entering the V8 supercars will all have 5.0l V8's and be rear wheel drive kinda like what they do with your nascars its the shell of the car over a space age chassis. i think nissan is using an altima or maxima something like that and toyota will probably use a camry both front wheel drive cars. and that pisses me off and is why i preffer the old school group c. they should make toyota and nissan develop a rear wheel drive V8 along the lines of a falcon and commodore. but they would probably do it better.

the car manufacturers use to say "win on sunday, sell on monday".

Yeah, it's just a matter of having the funds to drive from Georgia to Utah, lol. It's number one on my bucket list.

My last car, before I downgraded... was a 89 ford escort (b shape)...

Dropped 60mil on coilovers.
Ford side skirts.
Magan front splitter.
Stainless steal straight though pipe onto a 4 inch bore.
Rear seats removed.
Front and rear strut bracers.
Recaro seats.
Cossie wheels
And cossie wing.

Now for under the hood lol ;)

It had a RS2000 head mounted to a 2.3lt bottem...
Running a standered rs2000 ECU...
All sparco cold air intake system...

Not 100% on the BPH it was pushing, but it had no problem keeping up with most things lmfao, went off the clock at 150 with ease...

Nice car tbh, didn't tam petrol until I floored it, and btw it sat at a lovely 75db... would set of car and house alarms... and even spit flames :-)

Yeah man those GTO's are a blast to drive, and they are pretty quick stock so you don't need much! My 04 stang made 260 stock at the crank so I needed some extra giddy up and after the Vortech kit I'm making 461hp at the crank, much better :D


That must be one hell of a tune... What you do for intake/exhaust? 400+ with a vortech is insane gains. WHat you do for backend and tranny 461 to crank is a lot of power for stock. I had the same Mustang 04 40th GT silver Almost all possible bolt ons ....with custom longtubes, bassani X, and borla stingers. 4.10 gears, 315 out back 275 up front. Lowered 1.5 and 1.2. N/A with JLT CAI Accufab upper and lower and throttle body. With the tune I got 304/327 to the wheels. Wish I put a blower and cammed it before I wrecked :-( Now i have a god damn altima. I will be trading it in for a SHO very soon though :-).

love escorts but we stopped getting them in australia after the MkII. i think they went to the ford laser as a replacement. wich is the same as the original front wheel drive mazda 323.
