Any car enthusiasts?

38 posts in this topic

I know it seems shallow to be obsessed with cars but for me it has always been a passion. I finally took the splurge and got a brand new XJ as the new body is spectacular when compared to my previous XJ. I joined a local Jaguar enthusiasts club and find myself with a bunch of middle aged men who all sit and talk shop about these cars. Anyone else here just as passionate about a particular brand of cars?

I love my pick-up. My neighbor is in a Corvette club. That's about all I can add.

Nice looking cars. I always thought Jaguars weren't very dependable. Or is that just an old wives tale?

good looking rides right there. I've got a major itch to get something new, but I love my TL and it's still running great etc. I used to swap rides every two or three years and I've been in the TL for 6.

The last few years I've gradually become more of a car enthusiast. Currently driving an Infiniti G37 coupe.

My dad called me today saying he's looking to get a new car and wants my advice and to go shopping around with him. He's looking for a 4 dour sedan that also has some power and a sportier look. Something from Audi, Jaguar, BMW, Cadillac, Mercedez would suit him well. Any particular models you can think of? He likes the idea of a hardtop convertible but I think it may be difficult to find a four door there sportier yet a hard top as well

I love 60's & 70's muscle cars, had a few but had to sell off. Would love to aquire another one and enter car the shows, but for now I'll be happy when I can just buy another Ford Ranger pickup. :mellow:

    • He blew up after the combine.  This is the case for at least one or two players every. single. year.  OBJ is a prime example, I remember around Jan or so we felt good about our chances to land him late in the first round.  Come draft day he was a lock to go in the top 16.  McCaffrey absolutely carried Stanford to a Rose Bowl where he made a great defense look lost.  Should have won the Heisman and it shouldn't have been close.  At the combine, teams saw he is far more than just a running back and a lot of the myths about him have become debunked.  That's why he's risen so much, he's earned it and should be picked in the top 10 imo.  
    • I heard the redskins are going to release   Stephen Davis dude only had to 800 yards last season.
