Fun/Fast cars
 
So I just re-discovered this forum(I tend to forum hop based on my interests at any given time) and I figured I might as well post my latest time/money sink :supergrin:

Please feel free to post your fun vehicles as well.

Bad picture took with an Ipod Touch but this is my 1987 Trans Am. Rebuilt 350 with vortec heads, Comp XE270HR cam, Hedman longtubes, full MSD ignition, Edelbrock intake and carb.

2012 Subaru WRX
 
Love this little car.
It's quick, handles great, AWD, and good cargo space.

Congrats on your purchase. I have a gen1 MS3 and love it. You can't beat a car that has 263hp/280tq and still gets a combined 27 mpg. My only gripe is that it's front wheel drive but hey, it's a compromise.

Nice! I strongly considered the WRX, though I would have gone with a sedan. I was trying to justify paying 5 grand more to get AWD with essentially the same features as the Speed3 with tech(Nav, HIDs, LED tails, Good stereo, etc) and I just couldn't do it. The subaru is an awesome car but there were no good deals to be had on new ones and I don't need AWD. Plus, from a roll my car is faster :) More so once I get my internals and racepipe on. I'll do a TMIC after that and hopefully be around 290-300whp with a pro-tune.

I love the color you got by the way, it looks awesome. Have you modded it at all?

Thanks, I love genwons. I was planning to get one for a few years but the gen2 look grew on me and I didn't want to get one of these used(too scared of people beating on them.)

I get pretty good MPG too. About 25 with mixed driving, and I can get over 30 on the highway.

I bet that sounds awesome. One day I'd like to own some V8 muscle.

I love my 2012 MS3!!! Picture is from the day after I got it. I thought I recognized that intake. I love CorkSport. I only have a SRI right now but I have plans. Put on my winter tires last month. Got OEM size Conti DWS. Glad I'm not the only MS3 owner around here!

Nice LSM! Looks great. That was my second choice for color, and sometimes I wish I'd gotten it(mostly when my hatch is covered in soot.)

Its always good to find more speed owners. I recommend joining mazdaspeedforums.org if you want the best information. There are a lot of harsh people over there but if you do your research you won't get flamed and you'll learn a lot about the platform. What plans do you have for it?

I have had this 1992 Corvette (LT1) since March of 2006. It has a 135K miles on it but doesn't leak a drop of anything and runs like a raped ape:
