I have decided to make an attempt to be more than a purely entropic force here at the CZ, so I shall begin an automobile discussion. Feel free to participate and enjoy the conversation, but be interesting, and do not be a douchebag in my thread. My car This is my car. I have posted about it before. It is a 2006 Mazdaspeed6. ~3500 pounds dry, transverse 2.3L turbo four-cylinder producing in excess of 270 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, mated to a six-speed manual gearbox driving a fairly sophisticated all-wheel-drive system. Torque meets asphalt through 215/45-18 Bridgestones in summer and Pirellis in winter. I've installed Cobb's silicone SF intake and inlet pipe, and I'm currently running an off-the-shelf AccessPORT tune from mzdspd.com for 91 octane. It's an incredibly high-strung car that's very poorly understood by the aftermarket and the ownership base, and I'm considering returning it to stock for now until I can afford to get a pro tune and iron out all the little quirks that come with a modified car of this type. I think this car is the shit and anyone with a WRX or a Legacy GT can take their large aftermarket and shove it right up their own ass, because we all know which of the three was the hottest from the showroom floor. A car I want 1978 Mustang Cobra II. My Mazda needs a buddy, so hopefully this summer I'll come across a good-condition Cobra II to put in the garage. I'm looking for a rust-free or at least minimally-rusted V8 car with T-tops and the lacy aluminum wheels, and a full interior including the center console. I don't care about the color but I do want a V8 and not the 4- or 6-cylinder since I'd like to be able to keep the original engine in the car. These rated about 139 horsepower back then, which is hilariously low, but I certainly don't intend to keep it stock, and everyone knows modified 302s are good for monster power. My plan for now is to target ~330hp and keep it civil. Cobra IIs are around 2700 pounds, so it doesn't take much to get them moving. The idea is to get a runner and drive it this summer, and then begin to tear it down to bare bolts and restore it to factory-correct (except the engine) specifications. In the end it should look something like this. I'm not into resto-modding because I think it destroys everything that was originally charming and desirable about the car in the first place. The new Camaro I think the new Camaro beats the shit out of Dodge's Challenger and Ford's Mustang in every category including exterior and interior styling, and engine choices. Discuss. Racing IndyCar is now something like 80% a Versus exclusive, so if any of us wants to see anything like the recent GP of St. Petersburg, we need to order a special cable channel. How is it that a sports league struggling frantically for viewership could possibly be so stupid as to take their broadcasts off of ABC and drop them onto some new cable channel few people have heard of? Oh, well, at least we'll get to see the Indy 500 on a sane channel. And maybe Danica will win another race this season and everyone can feel ever-so-slightly less embarrassed for overhyping her so profoundly. Now you speak Make it good.
