2006 Mustang V6 with mods. This was my graduation present to myself. 80 miles a day roundtrip to work. Fast approaching 50,000 miles (like in a few days).

My sister's old Mitsubishi 1995 Lancer EX which we bought from her. My dream car though, is a Smart ForTwo, since I drive mostly alone. And it would be the perfect match for the S10, a mini car and a mini laptop. :lol:
Plants vs. Zombies on the S10 is such a fun stress-buster.

I'm actually a car guy, I use this S10 to actually tune my cars.

I own a 2003 Lancer Evolution 8, 2003 Infiniti G35, 1978 Chevy Malibu (Supercharged and all that stuff), I previously also had a 1996 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor which I recently donated to a local police department as an undercover interceptor (It was highly modified and very quick, it could easily keep up in high speed chases with very high-end performance cars)

Good enough?

Everything I own is either turbocharged or supercharged, usually added by myself.

Your G35 has forced induction?

its In progress, I've been fabricating some parts needed in addition to waiting on a twin turbo kit that has a pretty long lead time that I decided to fabricate my own setup. The G35 is my daily driver so its taken much longer to do than other projects.

That's awesome. I'd definitely would like to see some pics once that's completed.

'03 Audi A4 1.8T Quattro
I've bought this ride in East Meadow Long Island, NY in this september and successfully shipped it to Moscow 8-)
But unfortunately, the final cost in Russia has turned out $25.000,- Unlike the United States, where these cars are twice cheaper. :?
Anyway, I'm glad 8-)

When I can afford one, I am going to get a 1997-2003 Pontiac Grand Prix GT.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pontiac_Gr ... generation

Totally american performance car (it basically is like a slightly underpowered porsche which looks WAY WAY better, built for performance, not e-peen) which is as comfortable getting groceries and doing road trips as it is playing around on sunday cup racetracks. :)

I almost was going to get the GTP (supercharged with eaton M90 IIRC) but the price of super unleaded and thus much higher cost of fuel at base just is not worth the extra 40HP added onto the 3.8L pushrod V6 power of ~200HP.
