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:

    • Times change and things evolve. Have you noticed that this year's draft class is the best in many years in the secondary? While the rules may be changing, have you noticed how defenses and players have changed as well? A guy like Fournette could be the thing we need to take advantage of the fact that this year and last year, CBs are being drafted once every 6 players and this year safeties are going to be drafted a ton as well. I think it was Linville and I who were thinking the same thing, that if you really want to get ahead of the current NFL, you do something no one else is building their teams to stop. I'd love to see us get into a real power running game, not a great running game because your QB gets as many yards as your lead back, but a running game that forces the D to not have extra DBs on the field causing play actions to be unstoppable. Maybe I am wrong, but it seems like NFL defenses are trending towards not being able to stop a great running game.
