Exclamation How much do you love your car?

I lost my license about a year ago (too many points) for six months because of wreckless driving. I still paid my car payment ($395) every month & I still had to pay insurance because my car was not paid off. ($245) How much do you love your car? My car sat for six months with the cover on it & I still payed for it every month. Would you do this with your Honda? Now I just found out that wreckless driving stays on your record for 7 years & not 3 like I thought. Again I still love my car & I will continue to keep getting bent over for the next 4 1/2 years. Oh well, list your post of how much you love your car!

THIIIIIIIIIIIIIS Much. I would store mine for 6 months with insurance and payments the whole time. Now that I am in the south, I don't need to store it anymore.

Let's see, no one but me drives my car. I wash the car weekly. I put a new coat or 2 of Zaino on every 2-3 weeks. I detail the engine compartment and engine. I wash and wax the underside of the hood and trunk lid. I take the wheels off to ensure proper cleaning of the rims. I cover the car nightly. I will buy something for my car before I will buy food (PB&J will do just fine).

Overall, I think I am pretty freakish when it comes to my car. It is, afterall, my #1 priority.

Talking

My buddy works for Maximum Motorsports & he has an 03' cobra. He bought some bassani exaust (without cats). His girlfriend can't stand it. She's like "it's so loud an embarassing to be in". My buddy broke up with her *** the next day. lol Turns out he was getting so much action from chicks cause of the car, she begged for him back. Just so funny how he broke up with her so fast for his snake.

I have the Borla Stingers (was going to put the bassanis on) and already told my other half that when we are driving, we won't be able to talk...it will just be too loud, specially the way I drive the car. Will be a great way to block out any complaining...just step on the loud pedal which could also be called the new mute button.

lol, thats great. That's what I do. When ever someone cuts me off I pull up next to them & rev it! Scares the sh!% out of them. My car is sooo loud. When I put my blower on it will be too loud. Have you taken that red beast to the track yet? If so what are your times?

Taken it to the track? Yes. Am I able to drive it at the track? No.

I have great trap speeds, and ****ty times because I suck at launching. my best was a 13.85 @ 98.xxx (missed 4th and coasted through). My best trap was 13.9x (forgot the last number) @ 111 or 112 (damn, forgot that too). I will have to double check my slips. I was ranging between a 2.7 and 2.9 60' time. Hows that for driving? Needless to say, I didn't go back to the track after that. I am looking at going to the v6 deal in steele, AL, and running a few T&T runs between V6 classes. Should be interesting as I will have the 2.76 pulley, CAI, Short throw (won't miss again), and Stingers on. Oh, and some Nitto DRs so maybe I can get all the way down to a 2.2 60'.

So, yes, I have been to the track, but suck at hooking with it. :burnout:

Ya they are hard to hook up. Make sure you get the Nittos & not the bfg's They last like three times longer. (seriously) Drop the psi to like 13-15. That should help. I am about as fast as a stock one, then they pass me fast when I pass the finish line. I beat a ws6 w/longtubes once. My friend heard them talkin smack. "Look @ this guy in his little mustang" ya who just broke your friends ws6 off! ***

Amen. That's what happens when you go from a 2000 GT with Nittos to a 2003 cobra with Stock F1s. Not to mention the track guy managed to transform the burnout box into a lake with no chance of avoiding the water. Now, an 03 with drag radials probably won't be as bad, but I still don't expect to get below 2.2 60s since I don't do much track time. But basically, I suck at launching and probable always will unless I start spending more time at the track.

I lauch @ 4,000 & it just launches. Soooo much fun. For smurfin I would get some 15x8's rims with some slicks & kiss those GT's goodbye.

i love my 86.

when it was wrecked the first time, i spent thousands of dollars fixing it (somewhere between 5K and 7K).

3 months after i got it back, some ***** hit me again, and im going to fix it again, even though its totalled out again.

and the first time i went without a car during those 7 months when it was broken.
