    Brown Santa dropped these off today for my co-worker.



    That's a lot of rubber.

I've been driving for 20 years this year. None of the race cars I ever sat in were mine. Except that 240 I just mentioned -- it was an 1985 ex-DTM Volvo 240 Turbo... let's see if we can't find a picture - there she is!

    There's a new ZL1 Camaro on a train headed towards my fathers home, he should pick it up next week. Personally I think it's a bit heavy.. but it did throw down a fairly impressive time at the ring so maybe it'll be all right...

    That Volvo of yours is pretty hot, but don't go racing dad for pink slips.

    It's more meant to be smooth and streetable than out and out fast.

    Given the choice of the ZL1 or your Volvo, I don't know which way I would go. Both are pretty awesome....

    Those 850s can be amazing cars, I had a '95 turbo wagon that I took too far and it became a bit tiresome as a daily driver,fully ajustable Ohlins suspension from a British touring car championship car with strut brace and progresive springs (lowered about 1.5") IPD sway bars nice 17" wheels off a C70 and enough engine tweaks to get it up to 170mph out at El Mirage.
    would have kept it forever but 150,000 miles of road use with the stiff suspension and it was coming apart,sure was fun though.

    Saw a Maserati convertible Saturday when I was out for a ride, no idea what model but when the driver stepped on it I had one of those "I have got to gets me one of those!" moments. The only way to describe the noise was a snarling tearing sound. Rapidly disappearing, too. Sunday when I was fixing a flat a Lotus went by, I swear the roofline was about knee height on me. Interesting spring, so far.

    We're looking for a new ride.

    Single-car family. $15k max, room for small kids, long-term reliability (mostly likely will have used up first 100k on odo). MANUAL tranny, and it has to be at least a little bit fun to drive (I've spent most of my life driving a SUV)!!!

    Besides something like an Impreza anything else I need to look at? How are the Mazda 3s long term?

    Jetta wagon. Love mine.
    The interior is so much nicer than anything else in its weight class.
    6 speed manual on the diesel. The 5 speed on the gas version should be good as well, if my previousGolf is anything to go by. The trunk can swallow a ton of stuff.

    The Accord is still available with a manual but you'd probably have to order a new one to get it set up that way. The new Focus will be available with a manual soon but that may be out of your price range. The Fit is probably too small, if only Honda had sold the four door EP hatch in the US that would be my hands down recommendation.

    My buddy is selling his Guzzi Daytona.

    Moto Guzzi : Daytona 1000 Moto Guzzi : Daytona 1000 | eBay

    I'm not really a motorcycle guy, but I think if I was I'd find a place for it (or something similar). I think if he got himself a bit "fitter" he could make this work.

    That thing is hot, but the riding position would be unforgiving for the vast majority of folks.

    Did I mention that it was hot? I want it.....
