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?

Thanks, yeah it is huge to say the least. I was next to a Mini Cooper at a stop light and his rear bumper didn't reach past my rear door, it might even be able to fit a Smart in the bed lol. Its all good until I try to park in the more congested parts of town where parking spaces are usually smaller.

Daily driver is a 2004 Ford Freestar ( I hate it!)

Work truck is 2005 Dodge 2500 with the cummins (Love this truck)

Fun toys are an animal go kart (Kurtzman chassis, briggs animal, run sprint races) and my Ultima GTR. Gotta love a 200+ MPH street legal vehicle.

jr1414 Love your Ultima, Ted Marlow took me for a ride in the 620bhp model a couple years back and I still haven't quite recovered. I do recall laughing hysterically throughout. My psychologist says this is a nervous, fear for life reaction ;o)

Are you running American Speed or LS3 etc?

Redzilla, thanks.

We're running our own LS1, making a true 550, normally aspirated, standard displacement. Ours was actually the first solid lifter LS1 in the country. We had an LS7 race block to build a bigger, badder monster, but really found it not all that neccessary. When you can light up 335 Hoosiers in the rear at will and at speed, how much more do you really need?

We used to do a lot of track days here in the northeast usa, but children have pushed me into semi-retirement. The son is 7 now and in a kid kart, and dad dabbles once in a while in a kart too. My daughter's 3 and has a 2 year wait to get in a kart. She's been dying to get into one since she's 2!

Lots of additional mods in the Ultima, if your interested, PM and we'll chat.

I have a Dodge Ram Crew for hunting and hualing crap around and a 2010 Honda Accord sedan that I inherited from my Dad when he passed last Jan.

This is my 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 Crew Cab which I picked up like 2 weeks ago.........

It was a replacement for my 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 Crew Cab that had a run-in with a horse on a county highway at 60 mph the week before Thanksgiving..........

The horse didnt make it, I however walked away without a scratch, all I did was shake the glass off me.

I drive a 2003 Mustang Cobra. For those that don't know, these came with a factory roots style blower. Before it went down for a rebuild, it made 460rwhp/48xrwtrq. With the new motor and E85 for the fuel, I should see around low 500s with this pulley setup. Should be fun!

2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8

I've driven mostly Corvettes in the past ('88 Coupe, '90 ZR-1, '07 Convertible) but I wanted a Mopar Muscle Car. My next toy will probably be another Corvette b/c I miss having one now.

This is my little beauty, it's an E11 Toyota Corolla 1.6SR T.T.E (Toyota Team Europe). It only has 109bhp but is pretty lightweight so this makes for a very fun car.

Toyota only put together around 250'ish of these car's in Europe, so the value is in the rarity. I only drive it about 25 miles a week, and as I work for B.P/Ford I get to drive lots of other new cars. But I will always have a soft spot for my E11 :)

The wheels, suspension, body kit and exhaust are all 100% OEM Toyota fitment, and given that the car came out in 1999 I don't think it's in too bad a condition lol.

I don't have any pics because I really don't want to make anyone envious of what I drive.

It's a 2000 Doge Grand Caravan Sport and yes it does have a spoiler. I know you're desiring pics of this big bad van. It's white with a little rust. It's a spiffy vehicle for sure!
