    Talk me out of buying a Monaro

    Thanks for all the input. As far as it not being an LS2 doesn't bother me as the LS1 is a proven performer with tons of go fast goodies on the market. Plus after driving SUVs and cheap econoboxes, this thing is great as far as performance and speed goes. I did a once over of the car and it...

    Talk me out of buying a Monaro

    Really theres 3 things keeping me on the fence about it: 1. it will put my insurance through the roof, right now I only have a Grand Cherokee on my policy so its not bad. Its my Daily Driver right now and I would keep that for winter. the wrangler isn't really street driven and I imagine it...

I took it for a test drive and it was SWEET!:D got back to the dealer and he said it could be mine for $14.5K. Now I know the gas...

    The one that got away

    When I was about 14 a woman up the street was selling her dead husbands 72 dodge charger it had a rebuilt 340 small block and a 4-speed for $1200. But my parents flat refused saying I would kill myself or someone else with that as a first car. I saw it at a drag strip a few years later and it...

    XGames 2008 - Rally

    He was on the list of invitied drivers, and Adam Corolla mentioned going to the x-games to watch Tanner on his show a few weeks ago. I dont see why the defending champion wouldn't be there, unless something has happened?

    One small problem with Gumpert Apollo's lap time

    I think you guys missed the point, on the road it is raised and then you lower it back down when you get to the track? why do you need to be able to corner at 140mph on the road?

    My money pit

    So I spent the morning in the garage trying to test fit the new shafts in the rear only to discover the inner wheel bearing is toast.

    FASTEST car you've driven

    So probably 11.00-10.50 for a full run, hope he has a rollcage. I watched a guy run an 11.49 and get kicked off the track cause a any car running sub 11.5 needs a 'cage. Seemed a little ridiculous for .01 sec faster but saftey is saftey
