1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Not many of us drive the car we want to. What are you guys actually driving as opposed to what you'd like to be driving (name something that may actually be affordable for you)?

    Currently I drive a 98 Firebird. I drool over the new M3 coupe eveytime I see it though [​IMG]

    W210 E 55. Extremely dark charcoal ("obsidian black") exterior with lighter charcoal interior. It's a sleeper.

    I do not really want to get my dream car. I think it is good to keep dreaming. That, and I would probably get in trouble with a Viper Venom tuned.

    It's funny you said that, I remember when I was in the service, we had a young (19 y/o) Viper owner check into the battalion....needless to say, he wrapped it around a tree 2 weeks later.

    I love the viper, but I feel that the interior is lacking a bit for a car thats almost $100k

    I agree, the interior is horrendous. In fact I've always thought of the Viper as the ultimate F-you car...it's loud(extremely), crude and raw......but these are the reasons that make the car special.


    ......it's the 427 AC Cobra of the modern times.

    Please keep in mind, I am not lusting after a mere Viper. I want the Hennessey Venom tuned edition. http://www.supercars.net/cars/3203.html If it was just a plain Viper, I would probably have one at this time.

    Hennessey is a crazy man, he also does a modified 1000hp Ford GT, that tops out over 240mph.

    Hmmm, that one looks kinda fast.

    He is indeed a crazy man! I have a close friend that got a Viper years ago (he still has it) and my sister-in-laws brother got an inheritance...and spent all on a Viper and a "snow bird" style camper. [​IMG]

    The factory tuned Viper is fairly impressive; it is all low end grunt and muscle. I can just imagine what the Venom version is like [​IMG]

    That's why it's my dream car [​IMG] That, and having a 225k two seater you drive probably twice on month on Saturday evening makes a certain statement. I just currently lack that kind of cash to make that particular statement.

    What I drive: 2005 G35 Coupe
    What I want: Mercedes C350 4MATIC

    I currently drive what was my dream car ... within reason.

    BMW 645 coupe with SMG transmission and optioned to my tastes.

    Now, aside from a 650 coupe, I'd have to go way out on a limb for my dream car -- for contemporary vehicles, it would probably be an Audi R8 or a BMW M6, but I doubt I'd ever spend that on a car.
