post #22861 of 26282
I found a rental car company near me called Rent-A-Wreck (no joke) that among its fine automobiles had an E46 325i stick shift for rent. Friend and I picked it up and he helped me learn stick over that weekend. A few weeks later I flew to Buffalo to get the Supra and drove it back to D.C., screwing up a bunch and stalling once, but did make it back.

RTC, that's a proper versatile bike.

Just got my new old car home temporarily while I wait for some parts from 'Murrica. Parking shade at home is a bit tight...

Really need to get out to my new home track. But i'm trying to develop a product for turbo cars. And won't eff around with my daily too much. Which means i need a research/track car. . . . nod[1].gif

We have them here as well, they should change the name to rent a death trap.

$88K for a Turbo 4 is a bit tough to swallow, but people were saying the same thing about the 944 Turbo and 944 Turbo S back in 1988 when they were approaching $50K.   A friend and fellow Porsche owner just drove a new 718 S on Friday, and he said it was very impressive and a blast to drive.

I was going to ask. :cheers:

 

I do love the cheap, big, power a turbo can give, but I'm a NA fan on the track.

 

What are you developing? (if you can mention it) 

post #22871 of 26282
Gotta love the simplicity, torque curve, and heat management of NA cars on track.

Other than the EVO review that blasted it, the cars seem to be getting favorable feedback. I wonder if it sounds like a WRX.

You rang?

When I went to college (in the early 70s) I drove a late 60s model MB 280SE ... it was a 2-door.

I'm not a car fanatic. I have almost always driven a car that is at least a few years old.

Oh man, if you like old Japanese Subarus you're in for a treat.

Someone T-boned my driver door while my car was parked on the street. The note they left must have flown away because I couldn't find anything. I no longer carry collision so not sure if my insurance will do anything for me.

Annoyed because it's been a problem free car for me for a long time (15+ years) and while it has little to no monetary value I had no plans to dispose of it. They jerk may as well have stolen it because I don't think I will spend out of pocket what it would take to get it repaired properly. RIP my beater.
