What Do you Guys Drive?

Just wanted to know about the cars you guys have on this forum. Post what it is, mods youve done, times at the strip and dyno numbers if you have em.

1997 Camaro Z28 6M

Sub Frame Connectors
Spec Stage 3 Clutch
Lightweight FlyWheel
3.73 Gears
UMI Short Stick
Pacesetter Headers
Lethal Performance Header-back exhuast
Cold Air Intake
Electric Water Pump

It put down 286 RWHP and 330 RWTQ with a bad exhaust leak so the PCM thought the engine was knocking and started pullin an ass load of timing. With some, should be done in a week or two, there is no doubt i could do 320 at the wheels.

Ran a 9.4 at the 1/8 when I hurt 2nd and was goin 1st to 3rd

I also have a 1969 Pontiac Firebird Convertible 3A
Has the Pontiac 350 H.O. engine
335 HP and 385 ft/lbs(IIRC)
46K original miles
Have EVERY peice of paperwork for this car including Protect-O-Plate, original window sticker,a nd even the envelope the spare keys cam in form the dealer. The car has a few things left before the restoration is done. For the price I paid for this car I pretty much stole the car from the lady.
Has some 14" Rocket Racing Wheels from the 60s Ive never seen another complete set and Ive got a lot of offers for them.

1997 Buick LeSabre Limited. Full documentation since it was new, I have the original window sticker and even the airbag warning stickers that were on the dash.

Mods -

2.75" Stainless steel cat-back exhaust with Magnaflow muffler.

I don't have dyno numbers, but from from what this car was rated at initially and what the guys at the muffler shop told me, I should be putting down 210 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque, upping my 0-60 time from 7.9 seconds to 7.8 to 7.7 seconds perhaps? Just an estimate.

I plan on keeping this car as close to original as possible because it already sort of looks classic due to Buick's choice to cater to the traditional American sedan buyer. So visually it isn't going to change any. Mechanically, I've done what I wanted to the most already, but sometime down the road I may put a better air intake on it as well. Maybe some upgraded plugs and wires too.

1998 Citroen Xsara 1.4i. No mods as I don't do any of that (keep it standard is what I say!). I bought the car from a good mate of mine for £350 when he was given £7,000 to buy a new one (Grrrr), he would only have been offered about £300 in a part exchange so I generously offered him the £350, lol. It's only really a base model and as such only has PAS, Drivers airbag, Remote Central Locking and an Alarm, it also has 89,000-miles on the clock. Oh and one of my personal favourite bits....a digital odometre The car infront of it is/was my VW Golf, that I've now sold for £10 more than I paid for it (hey, a profit's a profit afterall!), here's the pics:

Sorry, no picture, I don't own a camera ...

'97 Dodge Neon coupe SOHC
Mods:
Performance Chip (can't remember what kind. I bought it from eBay about a year back. It didn't actually make all that much difference.)
Performance Exhaust (again, I don't know exactly what it is. I took it out of another neon like mine. Says 'monza' in the muffler, which I assume is the company. this made a huge difference.)
I stripped nearly all the insulation out myself. The back seat has been removed to reduce weight, as has the spare tire, lining from the trunk, etc.

The outside looks crappy. I haven't really done anything at all to make it look better. I assume it was originally bright red, but it's kind of faded into a gross brick color. I've been considering repainting it, but it would be a lot of work and I kind of like the fact that it doesn't look like much at all. If I repainted I'd probably do silver or black, or a combination of the two. The headlights are also really yellowed, but they're expensive to replace.
So there it is.

1994 Buick Century

3.1L v6, 165hp, 200lb-ft (cause I race it too j/k)

no mods, maybe some small things in the future, but you should be able to see why its not exactly a tuner car

and I will drive this is about a year and a half

http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h2...g?t=1163987495

no mods now, but engine is currently being rebuilt and I will do the breaking-in a little later

im planning on keeping the engine stock except maybe something to make a nicer sound, I know its not a real sports car

sometime in the near or maybe far future Im planning on dropping some rediculously large engine in and going from there,

you will all see pics and probably video clips when the time comes, and by then ill probably have like 7500 posts


well there you have it
