Anyone out there still?

Anyway GTO was traded in December for a 2009 Pontiac G8 GT.  I loved that car but its not what I wanted.  I had a chance to buy this... And I did.

I want the Vette and the Chevelle!

Here's my latest, a fully loaded C63 Coupe. I was able to pick her up via Euopean Delivery. She was broken in on the autobahn.  biggrin.gif

As she rolled out at the MB factory in Sindelfingen, Germany.

1983 AMC Eagle SX/4 Every option available, stock Radio still worked, 4 wheel drive. This car was a beast, it would go anywhere. It had a lift kit on it, bigger rims and tires, complete beast.... till I blew the engine and sold it for about 5 times what I paid for it smile.gif.

Everything on this car was in mint condition except for one tiny rust spot on the left quarter panel.

My 89 Civic Hatch. 1.6l 4 cylinder power riced to the max. I bought it as is for 3 grand, completely rebuilt engine and fresh from the garage paint job, had I/H/E and nitrous but was only hooked up to purge, sold it for 5k.

98 Chrysler LHS BOAT MOBILE. This car is HUGE. Barely fits in the garage. Its V6 powered and VEry quick for what it is. Ive beaten slightly modded 240's, mustang's (V6's not V8's) and all kinds of civics with this thing.

Next up is my current Daily driver. 96 Pontiac Sunfire. The mirrors are not carbon fiber, neither are the handles, someone was really good with carbon fiber tape tho. The sticker on the bottom left of the trunk reads "Clash of the titans 145+ DB Bracket " Paid 1700 for it as it is, nice littler car, pretty quick for what it is, hopefully soon I can find a set of stock rims and I can trade someone trunks because that wing is fugly along with the tails. Cant complain tho, it was a very good deal for the car

I also currently have a mitsubishi mirage, its red but I dont have any pics of it, its completely stock just bought it 2 days ago, dont even have it road ready yet. Soon to be buying a truck of some kind, havent decided on what make or model, I do have to lean towards a ford F150 or a dodge ram or Chevy silverado, I just want a big truck for off roading fun because the amc is no longer with me sad.gif

That's my 1970 Corvette Stingray. Picture is not all that great, but only one I have on this computer. It looks red, but it's Corvette Bronze, a rare color that under the sun is absolutely primo. Everyone says that they love the color. I bought it 4 years ago. Spent 4 months finding one, then the first day I drove it got rear-ended at a red light by some guy messed up on prescription drugs. He didn't even slow down so it was a solid 35mph. Since it's a summer car, it wasn't for another year that I got it out of the shop and able to drive it. It was blach-cherry when I bought it, but since the accident pretty much made a new paint job necessary I decided to go with the original color; makes it worth a little more. When I saw it painted up at first I regretted my decision because it looked like a cross between bright orange construction paper and a penny, but once it was sanded down and clear-coated, I was in heaven. It's the second most beautiful thing in the world, the first being the female body of course.

You know how some people have bumper stickers on their cars that say, "My other car is a corvette."  Well, I'm thinking about getting a bumper sticker on my corvette that says, "My other car is a 91' Lumina."   rolleyes.gif

Here are the urls for the remaining pics:

Here is a shot of what is under the hood.  Pretty clean for an '88.  The guy who sold it to me threw in the filtercharger for free so I just put it on so I wouldn't have to be dealing with shitty paper air filters.  I also had some problems with my soundsystem frying my alternators, so I had my mechanic custom fit a chevy truck alternator onto the car.  Also have a gel pack battery which goes well with the soundsystem.

Is it pretty quick compared to its turbo brother? Well compared to other cars actually. I was actually looking at buying one for a thousand dolalrs it just didnt run. Had 13k original miles, 1986 RX7, perfect interior and exterior no paint fade or anything, no scrapes or nothing. The owner died and it was left in his garage for years and finally his son sold it to a dealership becuase it dint run but the problem was bad fuel. I could smell it when he tried to start it. Possibly the fuel pump and def the fuel filter needed cleaned, the whole system flushed, but Im confident it would have been a great car with a little bit of work.

               Hard to rate the power on these suckers.  It definitely isn't the turbo II model, and it is a FAR CRY from the twin-turbo powered beast that the 3rd gen is.  The non-turbo is gutless in the low RPM range but becomes very hard to compete with in the high RPM range.  RX-7s can be made into amazing performance machines but they will also be the biggest gas guzzlers on the planet.  IMHO if the car is dead (no engine) I would go for the 350 V-8 conversion.  Rotary engines are such high maintenence (and are even more so once you turbo them) that you would be better off with ditching it.  You would get a couple of miles better gas mileage, more HP and still have decent handling.  The fuel smell is usually due to failing seals around the fuel line and they are downright dangerous, as it's very easy for the engine to catch fire.  RX-7s have VERY HIGH PRESSURE fuel systems.  Mine was doing the same thing (bad smell) when I took it in and got it fixed.

               I wouldnt build a rotary, I would do a V8 setup. Ive heard that if you dont run them into the ground, 3 rotor engine's will last a long time with little maintnance, but that might have been just fanboyism bs the the people on the forum were feeding me. I think they are sexy cars. but if I was going to get one and plan on doing a swap anyway why not get a dodge daytona? My step dad had one and it was pretty quick I guess, last time I rode in it before he sold it I was 13 and I didnt really care about cars then. Are they 6 cyl or 8 cyl engines?

Daytonas?  I think they are actually turbo 4 banger if they are the top of the line models.  I could be mistaken though.  I seem to recall a 2.5L turbocharged 4-banger.  They are pretty quick but IMHO there are better options for the $.  The 3 rotor engines are HP beasts but VERY RARE and expensive as hell to convert into a 2nd gen.  It would probably run you about $10-$15K and that is if you did all of the work yourself.  You can buy a rebuilt 350 for about $1600 and replace the tranny for about $2K or less.  Even if you didn't do the work yourself it wouldn't cost you more than $6-$7K.  It seems like alot but not bad if you are getting the RX-7 itself for $1K or less.

               Honda CBR 600 with 20 mm restrictor (rules require this).  It rides that low to the ground because we designed it that way.  The idea is to get the CG as low as possible.  A tilt-test confirmed that the CG with driver was just over 8 inches.  It only weighed 438 lbs, down from 483 last year.

Please tell you me you are kidding. Why on earth would you go and RUIN a perfectly decent Grand Am?  For the cost to make it that ugly you oculd have a nice v8, some lo pros and a nice set of wheels..  And Yes I said nice casue those wheels are ugly as hell.

The Z-28 badge is right above the rear fender and on the side doors.  You couldn't tell by looking at only a pic of the front end. wink.gif

There is something I dont like about stock MR2's, and its probably the stock bumpers becasue I like yours. Get that toyota badge off there tho smile.gif. Looks nice and I love that color. Is it a turbo?






Title: Post Your Cars Up!
Post by: RichMR2 on October 07, 2005, 01:36:21 AM

No its just a little NA at the moment, didnt think I would be able to afford a turbo when I got it but then found out I could (doh!)

Stripping it down because the paintwork is shit, the front bumper is cracked and I want to smooth it all in, and I was bored and have until April until its on show again, so need something new for the new season.

Also got a few new bits for it, new headlights, new engine bay cover, modified rear wing. And possibly mounting some screens in the bumpers if I can get some cheap enough.

Oh and the pics dont justify the colour, it has both indigo and cyan pearls on it too, which looks great when the sun hits it but over here thats rare so thats getting put on more intence when its resprayed.

I dont like the tails either, maybe if they were painted blue instead of clear, use some of that clear blue paint that people painted their crystal xbox's on there.



Possibly try to fix that ps2... it looks like it was just a bit crappy the way its mounted. How big is the boot in one of those? Maybe put an xbox and ps2 in there and a car puter or something. I think one of those intakes that are made for mr2's that come out of the back glass  would look really good on your car.




Title: Post Your Cars Up!
Post by: RichMR2 on October 07, 2005, 05:01:25 PM

PS2 is coming out, its never been fixed in properly due to me needing to access the back to put the Hard drive in.

Boot is big enough to house a ps and xbox but means running cables through the engine bay which isnt easy, might build a station under the front to put either ps2 or xbox in as and when i want to (ie at shows)

Colour has indigo and cyan pearls too which dont show up in any pics, but it will be resprayed again with them on a bit more intence so they do, looks really good in the sun.

Tails, meaning the rear lights (language barrier between uk and usa lol). Personally I love them, have new headlights which match them and make it all look better but they are unpainted and not really on properly yet. The lights do look better when on though, but with the laws in the UK meaning I cant have any blue light showing I cant really do what I wanted with the lenses and paint them blue as they would light up slightly blue and im pulled over enough as it is.

All you would need to do is run a power wire from the battery (its in the rear with the engine right?) and you could run it under the car, just run it along the firewall to underneath the car, then run it up under the car to the boot and just get it into there. Then either do the same with the negative wire or just ground it to the chassis. Hook up a converter and your done.



Yes the tails are the back lights, think of it like the tail on an animal, its on the back of the animal.



I feel you not wanting to get pulled over. When I drove my brothers dads prelude I was pulled over 3 times in a 4 miles radius.




Title: Post Your Cars Up!
Post by: RichMR2 on October 07, 2005, 05:50:25 PM

Battery is in the front of the car, which is where I plan to build the station to plug and go for either PS2 or XBOX (or PS3/360/revolution/nes/snes/n64 etc) eventually, although if I can pick up a cheap (as in �30) xbox from somewhere I am tempted to take it to pieces and split the internals up and fit them where i can, removing the entire xbox case and cutting the size down somewhat. The interior is still all being designed as I need to fit the ipod somewhere better too and I have a fair few more screens to mount and a laptop to fit in too.

But thats what winter is for, modding the car for next season, I have until April to get it all finished, just funds are very limited (have �3500 and it will cost me that for the respray alone, and need new rims whihc are �700 without tyres)




Title: Post Your Cars Up!
Post by: Psykomantis00 on October 07, 2005, 07:08:39 PM

If the battery is in the front of the car it would be extremely easy to install a ps2 and xbox. Look around for some used tv's on ebay. Can I get a pick of the boot? Is that where you put the targa top when its not on the car?

Yeah I have the PS2 installed, but Im removing it from where it is, its something I need to plan out, but might strip an xbox and get it running XBMC for the car, fit it in the car not the xbox case if you get me. But the front boot is very clutterd with the spare, coolant beelding bits, clutch & brake resiviours, a hell of alot of gubbins in there. T Tops go behind the seats (hence no decent Subs there only Genesis P69 6x9 subs)

Thought that a long time ago, well, the car has pearls on so was going to get them sprayed with the same pearls that are on the car so when the sun hits they change from silver to purply/blue. But have some new rims on the way soon because the rims on there dont suit the kit IMO, they were put on before I put the kit on and I never got round to changing them.

Nice one mate, so your getting a Sunny GTI?

Aint they got about 140BHP standard? thats not bad at all, abit of tuning could go along way on that car.

Oh and for the coils, i agree some can be pretty rough and harsh for road use, but it depends on which type you get, some are also adjustable, so you can soften them up abit if you wish.

Ive got some FK's on the Astra, and they are great, they deffinatly aren't too harsh in my opinion and the handling really is amazing, summer will be the ultimate test when the roads warm up some. They are fully adjustable too, and can drop up to 70mm

Ive only got it on standard wheels at the moment though which are 17's i'm after some 18's, they aren't the best of brands but look alright, was considering painting them or having them refurbed in black as they are second hand and seeing how much more i can drop her. biggrin.gif


yeah ill be after a GTI to bounce around in until i can get a GTI-R im sunny mad lol, yup about 140bhp standard, prob around 125 after all these years, exhaust & intake and a few other bits and bobs should take it up to around 160 without breaking the bank, N/A tuning gets pointless really quick.

Uses the sr20 engine too, so GTI-r engine can be dropped straight in, but the prospect of 220bhp at the front with about 300kg less weight than a pulsar is a fast but scary idea.

I toyed with the idea of getting a R5 GTT, but i dont know if i can be arsed with maintenance costs and finding a gen of a 5 these days is very very hard.

Coils and their harshness come down to the driver really, i certianly dnt mind being bounced around laugh.gif

aw man you got to replace the wheels, put 16's on and slam the fucker  muhaha.gif

edit: perfect GTI on pistonheads, such a shame i dont hav that kind of cash right now sad.gif http://www.pistonhea...ales/414540.htm

               Yeah mate i can guess it might have lost abit of power over the years, but unless its been totally thrashed and has done silly miles, i bet it won't have lost too much and will probably still go pretty well.

It is indeed supprising a few bits can soon have a decent gain for the money you'd spend, but N/A tuning can actually go along way, my brother (i think ive said before) is still in the process of building his engine for his corsa, and hes putting it on throttle bodies, with normal aspirated engines on these things, they can get some real power and tourq from low down the revs. Hes hoping he'll have fastest N/A Corsa in the UK when its finished, and i think hes gona achieve it too. I think hes hoping for somewhere in the region of 240BHP all in all, in a front wheel drive car thats gona be plenty considering its size and weight, and the ammount of tourq its gona have. So far though hes spent quite a sum of cash on it, could have deffinatly put a 2litre turbo in it for much less, but hes gone for complete rebuild with forged pistons, conrods, and crank which is rare for this engine. We are in the process of sorting stuff out still, but hopefully in the distant future all will be good.

I always have quite liked the R5 turbos, but my main worry now is their age and reliability, and of course the fact its a renault isn't good in my books... Clios are the same story if you ask me..

Still none the less, i always have loved the look of those, a few tasteful mods and they can go a long way aswell.

I'd have deffinatly considered putting 16's on (though i reckon they'd look far too small on the car) but the problem is i was after a big brake conversion, i'm considering getting some wilwood 4 pots for the front, and they won't go under 16's so i need at least 17's+

To be fair though in particular on the front end at the moment, shes fair slammed on the front end, and it scraping to hell on speed humps and stuff.

Thats also quite a tidy looking GTI mate, shame you aint got the money for it at the moment. It looks like a good example as best as you can tell in the pics. Which i'd guess are gona be hard come by now days as they aren't getting any younger.

You'll have to let me know when you pick up a GTI though and show us some pics beerchug.gif

It's a kit. The motor comes in the hub, so you just add your own tire, then add the battery bag and wire it all up.

Nice one mate, she looks in quite good nick for the age, still a nice red as best as you can see in the pic. I'm guessing youve waxed her over some recent time?

She looks much nicer lowered too mate, did you just keep the original shocks and swap the springs?

Will be nice to see the new sunny hopefully later this year.

Here's the kit I used. (http://www.werelectrified.com/product_info.php?cPath=2&products_id=1)

I researched it a lot before purchasing and this is a great kit for the price. Keep in mind that the lead-acid batteries (cheapest kind) will make your bike weigh a ton, so it becomes practically unusable without using the motor. A steel fork is required and it is highly recommended to not use a fork with shocks, because the torque applied to the tips of the fork puts on more strain than it was designed for. Steel, rigid bikes are luckily the cheapest though, so I bought this bike for $40 used and kept my nicer bike for rides without the motor.

If this type of thing is interesting, there's an excellent forum at http://endless-sphere.com/forums/ (http://endless-sphere.com/forums/)

havnt waxed her in about a year lol mate, she has kept her colo0ur well though, aside from the bonnet her paint is good, still gleaming red an almost the same as when it rolled out the factory. The laquer on the bonnet has went dry so it looks a bit naff but im not bothered anymore.

shes on gti shocks and spax springs, i managed to get 4 shocks with the spring in vgc for �50 all in laugh.gif ideally i would have kept the original front shocks cos the sr20 in the gti is a touch heavier, but one of my originals was busted so best to swap, still tightened the handling up a treat.

Man have things changed.... Finally I am drawn back here with the release of Freeboot.

Still have the GTO, figured I should post some updated pics.

First is the new sound... Changed out the Spintech mufflers for a Magnaflow catback.... and swapped the cam.  Also have a 150 shot of Nitrous, built auto trans, 3200 stall converter and a full suspension now.

That will look great painted up.

s13 front end?

Bonnet looks carbon, is it just filthy?

yes, it's s13 Silvia front end available only in Japan. and yes the "Bonnet" (laugh.gif) is carbon fiber.

though the whole thing is a bit dusty having sat in my garage for a number of weeks, and sat in someone's barn for a number of months before that.

both the hood and and the grill could deal to be polished up too...

I plan on having the body fixed up and repainted in Nissan Skyline "Midnight Purple II", maybe even the hood too, I don't know if the carbon fiber look is really for me.

ROFL... That area down at station sq was scary, was always expecting a bum to attack me.

We almost got arrested a few nights later, I had my buddy in town who is a hobbyist photographer and has a high dollar DSLR and we had 2 GTO's and 2 Cobalt SS's together, he wanted to get some shots so we drove around looking for spots and decided that we could totally drive on the sidewalk on the side of PNC Park.... Well the street you have to go down is closed and the turn around was marked emergency vehicles only... it was 3am so we decided to go down there anyway, drive up on the sidewalk (Which involved squeezing between the PNC Park entrance gate and a light post), all was going well until we saw a PGH Police officer drive by the top of the street then turn down.  We got yelled at pretty good, asked if we were stupid etc etc and told if we were not gone by the time he made another loop of W General Robinson st we were in deep shit.  Oh and my friend found out he forgot his tripod... so pics weren't even worth it

Unfortunately no we don't have anything smaller than the inline 4 600cc size here for the CBRs.  Since we don't have any real licensing restrictions here in the US, the dealers push the larger size bikes since it lines their pockets with cash which forces people to buy bikes that are much bigger than they really need or want.  The smallest sport bike we have here in the states is the Kawasaki Ninja 250 (the only one in it's class) and even on that we get the shaft as here it is a twin carb version and over in Europe you get the EFI on the 250 Ninja.  Manufacturers need to realize that there is still a significant and prominent market here in the US for a well powered 250 bike (ie CBR250) and give beginner/practical riders some fun, yet, smaller sized motorcycles here.  Way too many people over here who are talked into bikes that are too large for them and they end up getting seriously hurt or killed.   sad.gif

Anyways I just got started with riding so I went with something that I wouldn't get my self killed on and was cheap.  One '95 Honda Nighthawk 250 (CB250) with just over 3800 miles.  Cost me a whopping $900.  Works perfect for just about everything I want.

WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!  Just got word that the CBR250 is coming to the US next year as a 2011 model.  Unfortunately it is not the snappy little I4 beast that they produced in Japan and Australia but at least it gives us another small sport bike option besides the 250 Ninja.
