Yeah, cabin fever is setting in up here already, so I'm going off-topic.

Little background, which should explain some of my car choices. I've worked on Euro cars most of my life and own a Euro/exotic shop in the Buffalo area.


My forever car. 2002 Audi Allroad Quattro 6-spd manual. Bought it in 2009 with 110k miles on it. 2.7L V6 twin-turbo. Over the years I've done quite a few mods to it. It's currently around 500/500 at the flywheel, has 225k miles on it. Heavy bastard, but still good for 13.0x 1/4 mile times, can tow 5k lbs, has adjustable air suspension, and is pretty comfy.

Couple of years ago in Ebensburg, PA picking up a Grizzly 700.

Next up is a 2001 Audi TT coupe. Florida car its whole life. Bought it in 2012. Had 60k miles on it at the time. 1.8L turbo 4, doing about 290hp.

1990 Audi Coupe Quattro. These are pretty scarce. Only came into the US in 90-91, all with a normally-aspirated 2.3L inline 5. This one now has a turbo on it, and a bunch of other supporting mods. Not too crazy. Doing 230/230 at the wheels. Lot of fun in the winter with some big knobby studded snows.

This one was pretty recent also. These mid-00's V12 twin turbo Benzes are ridiculous. Almost 600 lb-ft from the factory. My wife drives it most of the time in the Summer. Comes home a lot with "clubbing baby seals" stories about kids in Hondas and Subarus who never knew what hit em. Still on stock ECU tuning until I build the transmission a little stronger. Still good for low-12 quarter mile times on proper tires.

And finally we have this old reliable pile of crap. Actually, it's been perfect for what it is. 98 Durango. Previously owned by a customer of mine. He hadn't driven it for a year, his wife wanted it gone. I traded 8 hours of labor for it. Did some brake and exhaust work, and it just cranks on. I used it primarily to haul around my old 4 Winns before we stepped up. Sister in law drives it now. Not sure why it keeps running, but it does.

Anyway, that's the little stable. Nothing crazy, but some fun stuff.
 
Love the 600 on slicks I'm not a honda,Acura kinda guy but I love German imports you can't beat the quality. I was old school back in the day. Novas, challenger etc.. now I have nothing exciting. You have cool audi's though.
 
no toys at the moment, here's my not so exciting daily. It's a 2015 GLI with a 6 speed. Not terribly quick, but vw puts a tiny turbo on the 2.0T so it's torqey around town just fine.

Pretty sure the slicks did in the transmission though :)

And honestly, when my customers get to the point where they're tired of putting money into their Euros, I suggest Honda/Acura for a reason. They just go.

They really are great cars out of the box. Throw a tune at it (GIAC is my preferred tuner), and it seriously wakes up.

The car I currently enjoy is a 2010 Audi S5 V8 that is just entertaining to drive! Torque from the word go but.....
The car that I miss and would gladly have another one of is the 2007 Honda Civic Si 2 door.
The car that I miss and hit my self in the head with a 2 x 4 every time I think about finding one is a 1978 Fiat X1/9 Fun to drive when I wasn't underneath the thing.
The daily driver is a 2015 Inifniti Q50s - Highly Adequate
 
#1 68 GTO owned for 20 years, numbers matching auto-A/C-8-track stereo car restored by me.

#2 07 Z51 Corvette Convertible bought new.

Weird, I thought all of the 04 Anniversary Models were silver over some sort of chocolate color. I like that color a lot though. Looks like their Arena Red but with more pearl in it. It's slightly different. And the painted roll hoops are a must.
 
Is that packing a 4.6 32v?
 
Nice. Fairly rare to see one of those powering one of those. I used to sell Panoz Roadsters back in the day, so that combination holds a special place in my heart.

Also doesn't look like the typical 25-30k Factory 5 build. I went through a few pics. Lot of time in this one. Nice.
 
Thanks.... Lots of time.... I put a bunch of technology into it as well....

the color is 'Carmon Red Metallic'...don't see many this color I have been told by the President of the local Porsche club.....has the optional dual exhaust tip and Carrera wheels......
