It commands respect in LA traffic, I signal to merge and people dont try blocking me. Plus I can out accelerate most sports cars. The other day 2 Japanese tuners were racing, I pulled up to them at about 75, by the time I hit 100 they were both in my rearview. Just imagine how that must feel to have a tricked out tuner and get beat by a lifted Tahoe...I was laghing the whole way down the freeway. There is no replacement for displacement!

If I was to ever buy a car, my first and only choice... Caddy CTS-V

Bone stock Mazda B3000 extended cab. First 'real' vehicle I've ever owned. Fun cars before. :(

New house a couple of years back with a steep driveway kept me from thinking about fun cars for awhile, but got me back into bikes! :)

Wife drives an RX330. Like the looks of that new IS a lot, but then again, I liked the IS300-fun loaner car. Congrats! (Now when does that IS350 get a stick or SMG?)

MiniCooper S. A nice cross between a skateboard and shifter kart, with the bonus feature of real gas mileage ( about 29mpg, only interrupted by some pushing and shoving with upstart German car drivers during which it delivers about 26 mpg. And a lot of smiles.)

Just found that there is a dedicated trailer hitch and trailer system now available for the little thang, so track days are happenin this year.

Ole' Faithful...1995 Saturn SL2 with <60K miles, real clean over all. Hey I know it's a bit of a joke but the $$$ go to the Duc not the Saturn. Otherwise, the family rides in my wife's '03 Subaru Outback...great in the snow!

PS...I bought my Duc with the $$$ I made from selling one very sweet 1969 Ford GT Mustang sportsroof (fastback) with a 351W, 4 barrel and dual exhaust, 4 speed toploader tranny, 9" traction loc rear, hood scoop and hood pins, Chin spoiler and rear sport slats (louvers), all stock Ford options + many other extras. That's why the $$$ go to the Duc...it's a disease.

Has paddle shifters..Six speed that grabs RPM's like an R1..LOVE IT! Only have 100 miles on her or so, but believe in "break it in how you drive method!!". What a blast. I'm quite impressed with the vehicle so far. Handles excellent. BUT, it's a Lexus and feels almost too perfect if you know what I mean..Super soft leather and very comfy. I didn't get Nav and all that stuff as I bought it for fun. Just the Premiuum package which is all the leather and wood, and the sports package with the suspension and 18" wheels. Stiff, firm ride. Quite nice. Best I've felt except for an NSX. Fit and finish is superb as you would expect. 28mpg hwy, 21 city. Not bad except I have to run Premium. I'd post a PIC but the ones I took are 1.67Mg and too large. I'm 6.0' and can put the seat back to where i can't touch the pedals. Most Japanese cars I drove this wasn't possible..Owned BMWs in the past and REALLY enjoyed the ride..However, got real sick paying a grand every time it went in the shop...Can you believe a Ducati owner is saying that..Looked at the Infiniti G35 coupe also..Absolutely stunning. However, new body style is coming out in late 07. I also wanted a four door.
