My freshman year of college, I had a '72 240Z, straight six with dual Webbers.
Driving on a new pavement highway, I had a older 911 come up on my right, then almost at the same time, a brand new 911 come up on my left. They looked at each other and WENT! Being pissed that I wasn't included, I quickly caught them in my 2000 pound missle. The bad part was seeing 120 mph, thinking I'm crazy, and coming off the gass too quickly, teaching me for the first time the Moral:
Speed is Cool, but rapid deceleration scares the SHEEEEET out of you!

Particularly if you're driving an 11 year old rust bucket!

240Z...go the Fairlady!! Love them older 240s and the 280s...nice ride for sure. There are a coupla 240s ripping around here...ones packing a narly 400chev, though the real screamer I saw runs a big front-mount intercooler...a front-mount I thought, hmmmm...chatted to the dude, he popped his bonnet for me - HELLO - an RB26DETT (Nissan Skyline GTR motor) running a big single T-88 turbo
700+ bhp to the rear-wheels...gotta love that


Its actually been quite an awesome few months here where I live, lots of Performance Car meets and cruises. A coupla Street Drags (where they cordon off a street, set up timing lights and peeps race their cars), one which was to be attended by a performance group called Croydons, who have a Nissan Skyline R32 GTR packing 972bhp and tapping a flat 9 second over the qaurter.

Also had a big Open Day last weekend for a Mag and Turbo shop in town, which was attended by a coupla hundred sweet Street Cars, of note was an old-skool Ford XA Falcon street/drag car stomping out a hellish 750+bhp AT THE WHEELS, NZs fastest Mitsubishi Lancer Evo...an EVO3 with 620 odd neddies and carding a 10.3 qaurter (not bad for a 2lt 4 cylinder! Which incedentially is being rebuilt as we speak and likely to punch out a 9 at the next drags).

Just this Saturday we also ran a Dyno Day which was attended by some phat cars...including the fastest Mitsubishi Lancer GSR (the 1.8lt 4WD turbo version) in Australasia...a little hell screamer soon to be busting out an 11
Hehehe...yep...I love cars

Thanx for the pic alien! thats some crazy revs! Ive been in love with rotary's ever since i saw initial d and i cant get enough of them.

If u love cars and dont mind anime - u should check Initial D out. Its this awesome anime about Japanese street racers - everything from Sprinters, to R32's, Sil80's, RX7's, Lancers - and it has awesome computer generated car animations.

You can get most of the eps off Kazaa i think,

I'll run my '94 Saab Aero against an M5 anyday!

I've seen the Z car Chevy small block conversions......that is just sick!

I'm thinking of doing this car, w/the Chevy, it's a replica of a '62 Ferrari GTO ( but in a convertible which was not made):



I'll probably opt to do a Porshe 928 convesion to a new Z28 motor...the whole thing gives you a 350 HP Porsche for about $10K, including Labor!

Nobody, I say NOBODY can beat my M5 ! NOBODY !

It's not a little Jap's car who can do it. And for the Volvo, I never saw one who was trying to beat me. But if you like to lose, you can try to do it.


P.S : MadScintist, a 100% tax on import cars ???????
Do you have to pay this tax for all the cars that you buy ??????
