I Gots a 1991 lime greeen Nissan Silvia K's. It has the 2 liter turbo unit (SR20DET) rated at 200 HP and 200 pound/feet of torque 8-) . Very good car, only weighs about 1150 kgs.

I have upgraded the suspension to fully adjustable coilovers as well lightly upgraded the intake and exhaust. I plan on taking it to the track after i upgrade the cooling systems perhaps.

Funny thing is the money that i might have spent on a new computer, wheel and Iracing has gone into upgrading my car, and let me tell you i think i made the right call considering a track day is not that expensive compared to Iracing fees. :lol:

I've got a 2009 Mazda 2 Genki.

It doesn't have a lot of go, but I really like the go-kart handling. I often take it up around the twisty roads in the hinterlands. It runs on the smell of an oily rag as well.

I also have a 99 Grand Prix beater that I love. It was a Mary Kay car and it was pink LOL. Took it to Mako for the $200 special and now she's white like the rest of the family. Went a little overboard with the pics but I love to drive. :P

Love the colour M4T! My first car was an '89 MK2 Golf 1.3 Driver. I stuck GTI arches on it when I drove the front nearside into a pillar, it lasted me a good year or two before it started breaking down everywhere and I bought something French :o ...you live and learn!

Here's a couple from my stable;

Previous include a Cayman S, S2 Exige and VX220. I'm currently driving a 370Z as the GTR is having a respray and after really hating it for the first few days it's growing on me. Although the auto-blipping is very annoying and I'm having to unlearn rev-matching. The GTR currently has about 590bhp and whilst I don't need any more speed I can feel an itch coming on! The Elise has had a special rebuild and is putting out over 200bhp, which for a 1.8K series (normally aspirated) is pretty decent. It's very loud though and I'm not in my neighbours good books at the moment ;o)

Here are some pics of my new truck, a 2010 Dodge Ram 1500. It is lowered two inches in the front and three in the back and is sitting on 24'" wheels that have been painted to match the body color. The Ram is damn fast, with a 5.7 liter Hemi putting out 390 hp and 410 ft/lbs of torque. As much as I would like to own a sports car, a truck is needed for my business, but that doesn't mean that it can't still be sporty.

That is a real BEAST MoparMike...Love it! It's abut the same size as the average UK family home ;)

Miki, that is quite the grownup car for a 17 year old. Any plans to spruce it up a bit?
