    Default Any car guys here?

    Big car guy here, I'm curious what everyone drives, Especially FastSRT8. If you have more than one car, what's your daily driver, and what's your weekend cruiser? I have a 2011 Dodge Charger R/T I drive daily, and I have a 2000 Pontiac Formula WS6 with 35K miles I bought new back in 2000. Still smells new inside.

    Nice! I have a 08 Scion TC....not the greatest car, but it works alright for me and gas is affordable for the most part. I have a buddy that has a BMW 328 (coupe version) and he loves it, and I like it a lot too. I'm going to try to convince my parents to let me get a Mustang or maybe even a Camaro one day. Right now, I just gotta keep my grades up and hopefully it will be a reality.

    My daily driver is a heavily modded (built, stroked and blown SRT8) Grand Cherokee SRT8. Putting down 500 hp to the wheels (4wd mustang dyno) or just over 700 at the crank if you convert the figure.

    Daily is an Acura RDX. I also have an 85 4Runner on 34" tires. Before those two, I had a Subaru WRX wagon with 400hp that ran mid 12s up here at 5800' ASL. In a perfect world, I'd have a 1960s British roadster and a Porsche Carrera 4s in the garage as well.

    Me and my dad share two cars, but we don't drive them often.

    * 2010 Honda Civic DX-VP
    Used to pick up my dad from work daily. This car didn't even come with a center arm rest. I had to buy parts from Honda to install it. I hate Honda for being so cheap. Steering is on the firm side. Only 8,000 miles on it so far.

    * 2012 Subaru Forester 2.5 Premium
    Used for weekend shopping. This car is very light on steering and pedal (virtually no feedback). Only 3,000 miles on it so far.
    In My Wallet:
    Citi Forward (12/2010) | Citi TY Preferred (05/2011) | Chase Freedom (11/2011) | GECRB/PayPal (05/2012)
    Discover it (07/2012) | AMEX BCP (09/2012) | TD/Target REDCard (10/2012) | Chase Ink Classic (11/2012)
    BofA BBR (04/2013) | FNBO/Overstock.com (02/2014) | Barclaycard Arrival (04/2014) | FIA/Fidelity AMEX (04/2014)

    My first car is a 1968 BMW 2002. I love it more than anything in the world. Though when I inherit the '56 Jaguar XK140 I might have some issues.

    My daily driver is a '97 Subaru Impreza OBS, I think I'm about to hit 230k miles on that. Runs like a champ so I think the body rusting out is going to be the biggest issue.

    Now driving a CTS, looking to get a CTS-V coupe in a year or two. I would also love a V8 jetski.

    Maybe you can answer this question for me. There are three ways to increase the effective displacement of an engine I am familiar with, Stroking, Boring, and FI. What are the characteristic differences between a stroked and bored engine from the same displacement to the same larger displacement? Does it significantly affect the torque profile? Different modes of failure for each?

    Hopefully not too unrelated to the OP's thread.

    I personally have an affliction for 944's, miatas and S2000's. I don't drive daily, I use public transport
