I love cars, I love everything with wheels, I've been into "driving" since I was very young, but I have neither the time nor the money to really get "into" them.

I'm brand loyal to pretty much nothing besides what's reliable. I'm starting to lean heavily towards Toyota's though, but if I were to become an "enthusiast" owner/tinkerer/racer it wouldn't really matter about reliability, since I would see the time spent repairing/modifying things as an investment in "fun".

My dream car right now is a Mark IV 2JZ non-turbo Supra. Always has been since Fast and the Furious. But since they are in such high demand and carry a massive premium for everyone to buy and butcher with body mods and turbo kits, I'd settle for a 7M-GE Mark III Supra instead. Or a 2JZ Soarer/Lexus SC300.

I love cars, muscle cars to be exact. The older the better, 60s where damn near perfection (at least for looks) for them.

Me, I have a 2001 Mustang GT, bought it brand new and as of now it has 17,500 miles on it. Mineral grey is the color, which was only made in 2001, 2003, and 2005. Just got first place at a car show 2 months ago with it, nothing crazy done to it. Lowered, 18×9 rims up front, 18x10 in the rear, cat back exhaust, and some engine bolt on's.

Yeah I like cars, not particularly knowledgeable about car sports nor do I really like a lot of car racing, but the mechanics and skill interests me.

I'm big into four-wheeling, though, specifically rock-crawling. One of my retirement goals is to get a Jeep or Toyota, lift it a bit, put some really low gearing into, some beefy differentials and axles, big tires, and go 1-2 mph over some large boulders haha. I like the engineering behind it and technical requirements.

So many broken axles and u-joints! Guy broke a rockwell on the last truck; that's an axle from a military truck.
