    Awesome Thread... [Automotive Edition]

    The Awesome Thread has recently been getting a strong infiltration of cars. So why not have a dedicated automotive edition.

    Same idea as the other one, except only car related awesomeness here please.

                      Sorry, I've managed to bring nerdiness to a thread about awesome. I fail.

                              I love how it looks absolutely stock, and even the engine looks more or less original.
                              Can you say ultimate sleeper?

                                      I had my volume turned up when I watched that:

                                      "... ho hum..."

                                      <"BAAAWHOOOOMMMM!!!!>

                                      "... wait, why am I deaf..."
