CM’s in my signature.
Daily for the last 10+ years and 172,000 miles. V10 and 6 speed and a baby seat to get groceries.

Will eat bugs. Open passing and testing session. Git out ‘da way!


Late for my daughter’s school pick-up:


For wheel to wheel endurance racing:

Because horsepower makes the car fast, but not you fast. Poor Corvette missed the apex by a country mile:

No driver aides, no flappy paddles for cars and coffee, and (almost) running out of talent on a slippery resurfaced track:

The 35 year old restomod track toy. 3.8L in-line 6, rebuilt to Procar spec for 420 hp to the rear wheels and 3100#s of analog fun.

Then our 3x Locked TRD Supercharged LandCruiser to crawl the mall:

And my wife’s A3 Quattro for the tiny parking living at the Beach.

04 GMC 2500 HD that the wife drives. Only R1 at the moment.
14 Chevy (Holden) SS with a full countermeasure suite. ALP's and a V1G2 as the current detector.
02 GMC 2500 HD "Farm Truck" ALP's and Flavor of the month detector R7 right now.

@DC Fluid I really like your 71 "Restomod".
It was a long, long evolution right from new in 71.
Originally had the 402 big block, dad jacked that up to over 400 hp, then got scared of gas prices early 80's, so in 83 put in a heavy duty 6.2 Diesel from a GM 3/4 roll over, and had to cut out the front end and weld in a the new radiator and battery stuff, lots of mods and wiring to transfer.
Turbo charging came the next year as going from 400+ hp to 155 hp didn't impress dad much.
Now pushes around 200hp and good torque, will edge out a stock 6.5 diesel, but not a modified one like my dad's next diesel dually. The newer diesels whoop ass and mine should be considered an economy engine, Turning up the boost just makes headgaskets die.
5 speed came in 93 with a new from the factory GM HD manual for the 1 tons. 1 ton rear axle with Eaton top spec full locker diff I put in just before it got retired.
Winch is custom made aluminum frame (dad's a welder) using an aircraft starter motor, equivalent to about a 12, 000 lb Warn.
Wood floor was oak, I refurbished it with African Purple Heart hardwood, then Rhino lining over top.
Extra saddle fuel tank to supplement the small one behind the seat.
Unfortunately it's been rusting away undriven and won't be getting any funds, new house and new car for wife before anything for me.

Oh yeah, this was driven, and worked hard.
Lots of sledding, hauling campers and boats, and backroads.
Has been to Mexico, Alaska twice, Yelowstone twice, and nearly every corner and puddle in BC.
Around 600,00 km total and it was weekend and holiday vehicle for the first 30 years.

Allegedly...

That's true lol. I really need to put in a dashcam in the WRX. Weeks ago, I almost had a head on collision making a pass on a 2 lane at night that you guys would have loved. Admittedly my mistake! Oncoming vehicles headlights were very dim and I misjudged it big time. How close was it? Inches 🙄.

My girlfriend looked at me and I said, quiet!

She just smiled and said [email protected]#k that was close. And then the next few minutes the discussion turned to my s***** night vision lol.

I'm also just a lowly Cruze driver, although it is a Gen I. It is fast enough to get pulled over though, hence my [still waiting in the wings] ALP install.

2015 Dodge Caravan for the wife
2007 Cobalt for my daughter

This'll stump many people outside Europe. A 2020 Cupra Ateca LE. Only 2000 built, and just 5 came to NZ.
Basically a Golf R that's grown a bit. 4.6 to 100 k's, 13.1 quarter and 247 km/h top speed.
It's why I need good CM's.

Very nice. Love the color too! What type of power plant is in it? Turbo 4 or V6?

What cars do you all have? Fast cars? Sleepers? Family cars and just like to drive faster?

I have v1s gen1s in all my car, but recently got a uniden r7 for $360 (!) on amazon the other day. I am cheating on V1 it seems.

My daily is a 540 hp Audi s5 with aftermarket supercharger w/6 speed. My weekend car is Audi s7 with RS7 upgraded turbos making 630 hp. It has ALP laser jammer also. My wife's car is a tuned and pulley upgraded q5 making about 440 hp.

I don't actually speed that much anymore like I did when I was younger. I just like radar mainly for protection from LEOs looking to catch me for no reason. I usually drive with WAZE on carplay too with alerts on only.
Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland edition with the Hemi and a 2021 300S with the Hemi also have the R3/R7 Redline 360c and a V1G2 that I use in both cars the BSM falses were driving me crazy but the V1G2 is very quiet in both cars

My cars certainly aren't as fancy as some on here, but that's okay because they're still an absolute riot! The daily is a 2013 Jetta Sportwagen TDI 6-speed. It's got the full suite of CMs seen in my signature. It's main purpose is to bomb down the highway at PSL +30 and still get close to 40 MPG doing so, but it's also a phenomenally balanced chassis and is very fun to toss in corners.

Bottom is my pride and joy. Bought it as my first car when I was 13 and it will very likely be the last car I own when I die. I have so many memories in this thing from high school to now. It's been demoted to occasional weekend drives in the summer (top down of course), but I enjoy every second of those drives. I'll toss an RD in it, but that's all that's really necessary, as I don't take it even close to the speeds I take the VW to.
