    I'm a car guy, but I like new cars more than fixing up old ones. Don't get me worng, there are few things more beautiful than a restored 60s camaro or stingray, but I much more anxiously await the new models each fall. :D

    I love them all.

    I love the smell of a classic. The deep rumble that only a classic car really has. No power steering, you turn the wheel a fraction of an inch and you just might end up in a ditch.

    I love spending endless hours wrenching. Me, my tools and a car. I love getting greasy, and making the car better.

    New car designs and technology that goes into them are so sweet. make 300hp from a 3.0 liter is amazing. Give me a Vette or a WRX and I would be a happy man.

    All the same goes for a crotch rocket or trucks.

    Its all art to me.

    Whoah....

    Bugatti Veyron

    Quad-turbo 16.4L W-16 making 1001 hp @ 6000 RPM...

    Gah... :drool:

    Formula 1 style 7-speed double-clutch transmission with column-mounted shift paddles, top speed of over 250 mph, 0-60 in 3 seconds...

    ...and costs a million dollars.
