    I don't think I'm missing any anywhere, but I don't see any car threads on here. I can't be the only wood burning car enthusiast! I have lot of motorized toys, as that's definitely one of my passions in life. Thankfully I'm blessed enough with a great job that allows me to buy some things here and there. I bleed Ford blue as you'll see!

    Here's my 1994 Mustang Cobra. Rare cloth interior, number 94 off the line in 1994. 36,000 miles on the smallblock 302/5.0L Supercharged, Anderson cam, big fuel system to match. 400whp

    Next to it you can see my '03 Focus SVT. I'm an SVT geek on top of being a Ford loyalist.

    This was before tinted windows and weathertech rain guards like you see in the other picture. 5 door ones are more rare like this. This is number 9 of 2,173 made in '03. It's a fun little corner carver! That is NOT my Chevy back there either haha.

    And there's my biggest Ford towing the littlest one when my belt tensioner seized on me. Winter rims on it as it is my daily driver.

    Nice cobra Benjamin Turner !

    I'll dig up pics of my mustangs I've had, as well as other cars I've had.

    I like my vehicles to be able to move better than they should, but if I really want to go fast, I go on 2 wheels.;)

    Thanks dude! I have always dreamed of getting a Cobra. The ultimate SVT vehicle. Finaly saved up long enough and found local gem! Got this right in Pewaukee! I'd love to see your stang. I'm a huge Mustang guy. Bikes are definitely fun! I just have an old 81 Suzuki GS750 myself, but she surprises people with how quick it is! I went riding with my friend on his Triumph 686 i think it is and he commented on how surprisingly quick the old brute was haha.

    Vette's are classic! I'm sure it was riot to drive. I've never driven one. I would like to. Above my pay grade though haha.

    It was a blast to drive but when I turned 66 years old I decided it was time to sell. :BrianK: The Vette stayed in the garage more than it did on the road....sad but true! :seasoned:

    Very nice Mustang Cobra Benjamin Turner!

    As much as you like Mustangs I don't thing your would have liked my wife's first car, a 1979 Mustang with the 2.3L 88hp 4 cylinder that we drove together after we were married. It succumbed to a dramatic head gasket failure in 1991 with only about 115,000 miles on the odometer. That engine was terrible from the start anyways. Not only was it extremely underpowered, it developed serious engine knock and lifter noise after only 50,000 miles.

    After nothing but pickups for 5 years or so; I started looking back in the fall for a daily driver to run back and forth to my day job, but also something fun to drive. Being partial to Audi’s over the years (had an a4 and a6 in past), I went with a 2014 Audi S4. Supercharged V6 with 333hp. Other features are Quattro, big brakes, sporty suspension, racing style steering wheel and seats. Very happy with my purchase. The car is an animal in sport mode.

    The Mercury with the camper was one we had years ago.
    The Miata is our current fun beater.
    And the bronco is my baby. It is slowly getting to where I want it. It looks much better now but the trans isn't cooperating.

    This was pretty much what I had, have a feeling it might be the exact same one...... Spent my hard earned $$ from working at the city swimming pool and babysitting $$ on it, $2600. Holy Cow the fun memories made in that car :dex:

    The dent on the driver front fender up towards the hood is pretty telling, guessing by the neighborhood and car in the other driveway this was before I bought it. I have to admit, do not tell brandon scott!!!!! I had a favorite pair of pants to go out on the weekends and the pocket openings were long, I'd put my keys in my pocket, lock the door, while I stood up and stepped out the keys fell into the car while the heavy door slammed shut. Locked out more than once :picard::emb::rofl: :lol:
