OK here are a few I had on my phone and elsewhere:

The first car I bought for myself after college. I will always miss this car:

Also owed this at one point. So much fun but that time of life is over:

A couple not-very-well-staged shots of my grandpa's, and now my dad's, and someday my 1966 Barracuda. Sadly my grandpa was frugal, to say the least, and didn't opt for the V8. I still love it though.

2018 Murano S without a single option. After many years of driving fast and badass cars, I just got tire of the maintenance drama. My wife has a Murano with every option that I enjoy so I just went that route but cheap.

Oh, if We're throwing Motorcycles in now then I can play that game too. No pictures of either bike saved to the laptop but my first bike was a 1979 Yamaha 750 XS Triple. Big, heavy and cumbersome but a great road bike. Next was a 1996 Suzuki Bandit 600. Don't laugh. It was a beautiful red and I add an aftermarket Corbin seat which helped in the comfort department. It only had 75 HP I believe. But it could out run every sports car I came up against.

Stock photos from the web.

My first was a '97 Katana 600 so I'm not laughing. Or at least I'm laughing at both of us. :lol:

Nice. Although I'm not a fan of body work on a bike. I prefer to see the engine plus it's less costly if I lay the bike down. Luckily that never happened. I got out of bikes before the inevitable "It's not a matter of IF you crash. It's a matter of WHEN." My older brother crashed a lot on the road and on trails with his bikes.

So much awesome here! That SRT is ridiculous!!! A GTR is no slouch in the 1/4 mile. And while I think it could have been a close race, you destroyed him on reaction time! That heavy beast effing launches!! Impressive.

As far as the funny car/top fuel goes, it sucks that it is impossible to capture that insanity on video. You just have to be there to feel it. That's right, FEEL it. Not hear it (without ear plugs, you wont be able to hear anything for a couple of days!). I remember being about where you are and trying to watch a couple passes without ear protection. After one side by side burnout, I was fairly sure my ears were leaking blood. Between that and CH3N02 fumes, it could be considered by some a torture. But man do I go back every year. My favorite is the practice on Friday night when you get to see the flames!
Several things that are impossible to convey from my starting line videos:

1) How physically violent it is to have 4,000 HP X 4 sitting feet in front of you. It moves your chest, especially at launch.
2) How stupid you feel when your nose is running, eyes watering from the alcohol cars, when a female crew member is wiping the tires down, having her hair blown back by the header wash and seems totally unaffected.
3) How the camera vibrates because the atmosphere moves at launch
4) How quickly, sub-4 seconds, a car that was just in front of you, is suddenly a 1/4 mile a way moving at 520' per second in the trap.

Not a car guy myself, admittedly.

But since I own a Subaru, they got me on the list to the recent Atlanta Auto Show.
For me it was all SUVs and crossoverszzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, huh, where was I?

Anyway, they had a few interesting vehicles to check out.
Especially the GM Parade of Progress Futurliner from the National Truck & Auto Museum in Auburn, Indiana (http://natmus.org/)

Some weird, little customized VW micro bus

A Lincoln continental with SUICIDE DOORS!!

No idea what this one was, but that is one sweet looking V8

I've got more Converse sneakers than watches, but it is a close race.

All Continentals from 1962-69 were suicide doored. These have always been one of my favorite cars (1965 models in particular), and I never hesitate to stop and talk to the owner when I see one.

1961 Chevy Impala.

That's obviously a replacement engine, and out of the crate it makes 650hp. It would get you from watch store to watch store in a hurry.

Well,I don’t own any of the lambo pictured earlier,I’m more into practical car

I drive Toyota Voxy (pictured in car wash) and Honda HR-V 1.8

Image

Why 2 cars? Because there’s a rule in my city that I can only drive car with odd numberplate on odd calendar date (except on holidays or weekends) and vice versa...I’m thinking about getting a military numberplate for my car so I can use it daily Image

We don't get the Voxy here in the US. The only Toyota van/mpv we get is the Sienna, built in Indiana for the North American market.

Good looking profile. Does it have the current Toyota/Lexus "Predator" front end design language?

Thanks a lot MOT. I have not been a fan of the new designed front end from Lexus but now I'll never unsee this.

My next door neighbor is a GM at the local Lexus Dealership. He brings home a myriad of new Lexus's (Lexi?) and will throw me the keys if I ask. I ask alot. lol

I've driven the RCF coupe and sedans. And, to me, those are blazingly quick. It also helps to have him as a neighbor since instead of buying a pickup truck I can just have him bring one home off the used lot whenever I need one. lol

Like all Toyota and Lexus, cheap, overdone styling that belongs in a cheesy 10 year old’s scribble book.

That car could be so awesome if they had designers with class. It’s way, way too complicated and covered in chintzy chrome and fake inserts. The back is somehow even worse than the front.

But it’s way, way better than the average from them. Toyota is copying basically everyone and 10 years behind across the board. Yuck.
