Probably a...Did it have to be moving? Or could it be at a show?

Uhmmm...a 1972 Ford Pinto.

Depends...I drive my 1990 Chevy Beretta GTZ everyday...but I have been in a Hemi Cuda drag car. Once.

Seriously.... how do you define "hottest"? Is that fastest? Coolest? Biggest? Gaudy? What classifies it as "hottest"?

I'm thinking over-all best. That includes, speed, the ability to throw you back in your seat and keep you there, ride, handling, look of the car and specs of the car.

Well in that case I would have to say a tweaked Stealth RT Twin Turbo. That car could move and looked pretty sweet too.

Other than that, I would say a Ford Excursion. It had a complete remake with intake sys. catback exhaust, and a Chip system from BullyDog to name a few. You take about Gs!! That thing would launch of the line and being so massive, you would fell like you are slammed back into the seat. Fun :mrgreen:

I think I have my choice for the gaudy and big catagories: my family's 1979 Olds...a 100 hp V-8...Banana-Yellow... it is certainly something...but it is up in Maine...

Bah, Vipers are over-rated. 1972 Chevy Nova SS with a 396 and possi rear end is where it's at! :thumbs:

posted by  Satty101

396 is not where it's at. Not anymore. I'd rather be pulled into my seat with a 505.

posted by  DodgeRida67

pfft, 505 can lick me. Go with the 572 :thumbs:

The hottest car I've ever been in was my buddy's Fiat X1/9 that caught fire and burned to the ground... while I was a passenger... and sent me to the hospital for skin grafting. Burned both my legs pretty bad and one side of my face. Spent 3 months in a wheel chair, and three more alternating between that and crutches while learning to walk again...

Oh, not that knd of hottest?

Pretty Darn Hot!!!!! Good thing your name or nickname isn't DOG. We could call you HotDog. :laughing: Can you laugh about it now?

As far as hottest car I've ever been in was a -whatever year the PT's came out- Prowler, sitting in the dealership.

The nicest car I was ever able to drive was my uncle's 1963 Chevy Nova convertible. What really made it memorable though, was a guy in a 1963 Vette waved at me.

I have always loved prowlers....

Good God that is Hot!!!!!!!!!

Hell, I laughed about it then. :mrgreen: the first night I was in the hospital, they were serving Cornish game hen for dinner, and I commented that it looked and smelled a lot like... ME! The nurse was apologetic, but I was laughing about it. I was teh main course in teh carbecue that year. It happened at the beginning of November, and for New Year's that year, my friends picked me up and took me to a big New Year's party/bonfire. And played around by rolling my wheelchair up next to the fire like they were going to roll me in.. Ha ha ha. Very funny, guys...

While stationed in Holland in the early 90’s the BeNeLux Ferrari group came to the base. Since I was on duty and obviously had nothing better to do I asked one of the guys for a ride. He said leave the gun behind. Gave my Rifle to my sidekick and off we went. He drove around the high-speed taxiway and down the active flight line. I couldn’t see how fast we got up to. My smile kept getting in the way. I’m not a Ferrari guy and don’t really know much about them. He said it was a GTO he bought in the states and I’m sure paid more for it than I will earn my whole career. Not saying much, considering Air Force pay. I got this from their web site so it may be the same one for all I know. After I got off work I climbed into my ’90 Mustang GT and cried. It felt so slooow :cry: .

My school counselor asked me what I wanted to do with my life. I said “sit in a car and read 3 day old newspapers”. She said” Join the Air Force and be a cop.”
5 months till retirement and counting :clap: .

P.S. So what exactly happened to vwhobo, or do we not speak the name? I think I missed out on a lot of entertainment.

vwhobo (http://www.car-forums.com/talk/showthread.php?t=2761) <-----here

I guess if I looked I would have found it. Thanks :thumbs: . If vwhobo was still here I'm sure I would have been properly directed in a most expeditious manner with the utmost professionalism and tact that seamed to be his style :laughing: .

I sat in the SRT-10 too. You know SteveO that would be the perfect car for me b/c we wouldn't have to chop off my legs then :mrgreen:
