Me and my dad in our fun cars.
I daily a Tahoe but have two mustang cobras, one is built supercharged, other is twin turbo.
I am a gearhead as much as gun nut!
Snowed here today!
Not much, just flurries but it reminds me it's time to dust off the Renegade!
Just heard that Central Iowa got 5"!
Terminator Cobras are not to be trifled with!!
Work truck now on steroids and it’s parking spot since it won’t fit under the HD9 lift
Those old air cooled 911s are the best. I owned a 991 and a 997 and I much preferred the 997. Still haven’t made my mind up on the new ones either. Too many electronic gizmos. The older I get the more I prefer the pure drivers car without all the gizmos. That’s a great 911. Thanks for posting.

What is even more irritating then all the nanny gizmos,like slamming the vehicle in park if you are backing up without the door closed ect.Or locking the pcm and tcm so you have to send it to a company that will unlock it,by soldering in a resistor or swapping it for big money.Just experienced that progression of control they want, from a 2010 Z06 to the 19 ram 1500.A Mercedes or Audi has always been hard to get a tune or a def delete now it’s domestic vehicles too.
I get it. JMO, I owned an air-cooled 1969, 1971, and the above 1973. I had a 1986 Carrera, a 1991 964 and a 1997 993 (all air cooled). All great cars, but the maintenance was high and the A/C never worked well. I was always working in the garage to adjust the mechanical lifters or change the bushings in the 915/G50 shifter.
I finally gave up and got a new water-cooled 2014 Porsche 991.1. It's was great and then ordered a 2020 Porsche 992. No more garage nights and much more faster cars.
The new lines on the new 992 are more like the original design. It has the turbo rear fenders with great A/C, Bluetooth, GSP, and my best Pandora songs.
I have this 2005 C55 AMG that is a severe Garage Queen. 39k miles on it.
The 992 looks a lot like the 991 to me.
I will eventually get another 911 but now isn’t the time. My dealer calls me to see if I am interested but I have a little one at home that’s 2 1/2 and one on the way. I just never drove it once I had a kid. I looked into getting the child seat for the 911 but I didn’t feel comfortable with for my kid. Therefore it got traded in for my wife’s car which is a loaded Cayenne. Once the kids are older I will get another sports car. I drive a Tacoma TRD Pro right now because it’s practical. My sports car was just a weekend car. To me none of the modern Porsche’s mimic the cars original design. You have a great 911 for sure. Glad you are enjoying it. One thing about modern Porsche’s is that they are well built. Never had a problem out of my cars but they were also very low miles. I sold my 997 with less than 20k miles on it and my 991 with less than 15k miles. That’s with a combined 10 years of ownership. Beautiful car

I drive a 2014 Ram 1500 SLT.
Wow! My kids are older than you. They are late 30's and 40's. You have a advanced degree or a family business?
My fast car is a current 2019 Mustang Shelby GT350. My carbon foot-print is very high.
My daily driver (2020 GMC Yukon XL Denali) the day I picked it up at the dealer...
My weekend ride (1995 Crownline 250CR)
Been driving the new farm truck almost daily since I got it back in May, putting it to work so it earns it's keep. I've had to catch up on maintenance stuff and make several repairs/upgrades but it's running and driving great. I'll be putting it up for the winter soon, I'll miss driving it.
800+ pounds of apples for the pigs!
No longer have the bike, or the Camaro. Specs on the bike - '76 KZ900, Weisco 1015 piston kit, Mikuni 36mm carbs, rewired entire electrical system, Vance & Hines 4 into 1 (no baffles). Cut and match contoured fenders, Corbin "Gunfighter" seat. Tore entire bike down to pieces, cleaned painted, rebuilt roller bearing triple clamp and front forks, new rear shocks... lots 'o stuff.
When I was a kid and Mad Max came out with all the old Kawasaki bikes in the movie, I was hooked!! Sounded pretty darn good. When it cranked (just had to touch ign switch, and it would light up), you could almost imagine women and children running in fear (just kidding, sounded cool though).
I had an 08 CLK 550 with AMG package and it was a BEAST and a blast to drive. Mine was a daily and traded it in with over 100K on the clock with nothing but oil and filter changes and standard maintenance.
My former daily driver was an 08 CLK 550 with the AMG package. I sold it March of 2020. It had 127k miles on it. Ran like a Swiss watch and the only recurrent issue was it went through motor mounts about every 2 years... It wasn't as fast as my "real" AMG but it was a ton of fun to drive.
Mine was the exact same car!
