Screw cars, I mean, think about it, what do you really want? Personally, well, I'd have to go with a fucking hovercraft. Just imagine, going to school in it, blasting some sweeto Dream Theater. Chicks would drop left and right, and you'd probably be hailed as the Messiah of Coolness. I mean, honestly, who doesn't want a hovercraft?

Oh, current car is a Honda Del Sol '97 SI. It's pretty sweet.

Edit:
Come to think of it, I want a Ford GT40, that's my dream car. Not street legal though, lame.

I'd go with some kind of plane or helicopter. The hovercraft idea is an ownage idea too!

Here is my car, 1989 Ford Escort:

Technically, it's not mine. My parents bought it so we could have a small car for commuting around town, but now I drive it the most. $800 for a car with 60k miles, original engine, and 32 mpg? Who fucking cares what it looks like.

This can outperform many sports cars since its a custom hybrid tuned properly. The electric motors allow for extreme acceleration, and the gas allows for maintaining speed and charging the battery. The frame is a matter of taste, but I bet its a wild ride.
EDIT: Some more detailed specifics about this car: 0-60 in under 4 seconds, over 50 mpg, 200 horse turbo diesel and 200 horse electrics. The batteries are intended mostly for acceleration, so the diesel runs during normal use

My current ride isn't so bad; how do those of you in highschool get your parents to buy you cars? It's the same thing with my friends, they all get cars for birthdays or after getting a license, but I can't afford a car or the insurance.

easily. GET A JOB,and the rest comes naturally.

Here's my GLI (someone else's pic but mine's the same color and one year older). As soon as the warranty's up, I will chip and mod it.

My dream car is the Ferrari Enzo, that car is pure sex on wheels!

My friend's dad has a GLI, it really is a nice car. My friend took it out one time and we went around in it. It's exactly that picture, rims and color and everything.

BMW 8 series (and BMW in general)>EVERYTHING.

Ill get pictures of my Acura CL up soon. Im planning on doing some generic visual mods right now but am looking for something that will increase gas milege (v6=gass guzzler).

This is what it should look like by the end of the year:

Posted Image

I currentley need to get the stock fog lights, sunroof deflector and clear bumper lights to make it look like that. I am going to either black out the lights or get XENON bulbs. Id also like to get a chrome grille. Plus a slight tint job.

As for the engine id like to put a blowoff valve, racing chip and something that reduces gas milege.

Once football ends ill have a shitload of time to do what i really want to with my car

Umm, no.

The purpose of a blow-off valve is to allow pressure built up in the intake manifold to escape when the engine is no longer under load. If it didn't do this, the pressure would back up into the turbocharger and cause it to stop, damaging it. This is because when the engine isn't under load, the exhaust pressure is significantly less. That's why a blow-off valve releases pressure when you shift - if you take your foot off the gas, the exhaust pressure drops rapidly while there is still intake pressure. This isn't a problem in naturally aspirated engines, because you don't have pressure building up in your intake manifold. That only happens in forced induction engines, i.e. one with a turbocharger or supercharger.

Well I guess you could put one on a N/A engine if you wanted. It just be a fragrant waste of money and do absolutely nothing.

What you are probably refering to from videos and movies is technically not a blow off valve. It's a dump valve. Dump valve jsut expel the excess pressure behind the compressor. A blow off valve is a closed system that vents the built up pressure behind the compressor to the inlet equalizing the pressure. Pressure stacking can cause damage to the turbo over time and also adds all kinds of turbo lag. You can still hear a BOV operating but there will be no visible gas. Merlinski is right though, neither one is usable on a N/A engine

Blow off valves are not to be confused with wastegates whos purpose is to regulate boost levels

Cuuld be either because they both are audible. Dump valves tend to be more obnoxious and you can sometimes see the condensed air being expelled.

Muscle cars all the way! 1969 Dodge charger is my all time favorite, and 1965 GTO's are nice to.
Herse's are nice to, why I like them is simple,in the words of AC DC "I got The Herse 'cause I never die."
But I absolutely hate imports. In fact this is what I think of imports(don'y look if you like ferrari's): http://img370.images.../mvc113s2wx.jpg

Mustangs win hands down, that's a given, but I love old school surfy charm. Hence the Holden EH and various other old school Holdens.
