    OT: What's in your driveway?

    I've noticed a lot of the people who post here are also automotive enthusiasts, so I was curious, what is in your driveway right now? I'll allow posts of previous cars, albeit interesting cars. (pshop your plates out if paranoid)

    Currently:
    daily, gti swap project, lifted fox project, and the 75 rocco.







    Previous: 83 gti ad 90 gli. both track/backroad whores

    You ain't seen nothing. There's a machine shop to my right. A Porsche behind the 4wd crane. I've even got a kitchen and bathroom with full shower.


    No electric blanket. It has hydronic heating. 95% efficient state of the art boiler/hot water heater system.

    I've got two Jeeps.
    This one is in the shop, getting it running again - for it's 50th birthday - after 7 years parked in my driveway. Had it all fixed up at one time. Drove it to Colorado and back and also drove it to Utah for the ski season back in the mid '90's.
    An all original (except the roof rack) 1961 Willys Wagon.


    And my 1993 Wrangler

    I'm a car addict as well as a bike geek... Aside from my daily driver (2000 3/4 ton Suburban, a SUPER reliable vehicle, BTW...), I have a really clean, original '67 GTO, a '72 Short bed, step side Chevy C10, 2 1990 Toyota 4-Runners, a 2000 ML320 and a '72 BMW 2002 project. Too many cars, I know, but the 4-Runners are drivin by my sons.

    The Bimmer is the one I'm having trouble getting traction on. I pulled out the original engine and trans. and have stuffed in a 1986 MBZ 2.3-16 and Getrag 5 sp. Everything is mounted, but I need to get pedals sorted out and get her fired up. This one will be my Autocrosser.

    Too many toys...

    I have two Subaru's. A 2005 WRX Wagon and a 2001 2.5 RS Coupe. They're great cars. Both have a few small things done, mostly suspension work, to make them handle a little nicer and be a little more fun for the trip to work.

    not much of a downsize...but yes. two of our three kids have flown the coop now and my old car just hit 10 years old and even though it was in great shape we wanted something a bit more sporty...but it had to be comfy and be able to take two sets of golf clubs and three people at a minimum. we were looking around for a few weeks and this car popped up on cl at a very good price so we snagged it. i got the oem rack on ebay, and have a thule 594xt in transit for it. lots of fun and all the new tech is a blast to use.

    Do not have one of these driveways and my garage is shared. But my Jeep is parked on some street, I got an app to remind me, hopefully without a parking ticket.

    Currently my driveway is taken up by a wooden wheelchair ramp. So not only do I not get to ride my bike, but I have to look for street parking and get wet in the rain when going to the car.

    But the day I'm cleared to ride again, that wheelchair ramp becomes a jump

    But ultimately having a kid and choosing bikes over cars...my fun daily driver is a 90 4Runner. Tough little truck.

    Nice! 67 is often referred to as the "best" year for bugs. First year of 12V and sealed beam headlights. Last year of the old painted dash, bumpers, horn grills, taillights, etc.

    What's on the driveway right now is an Arima Sea Hunter (small 15'ft fishing boat) & P.O.S. looking flatbed car trailer. I know, I'm a sore thumb to the neighborhood.

    The cars between my wife and I:
    '85 Corolla SR5
    '86 MR2 NA-> S/C
    '88 Camry Wagon
    '90 Celica 4WD Turbo
    '91 MR2 NA
    '91 MR2 NA -> Turbo
    '97 Dodge 2500 Diesel - When will Toyota make a Diesel Truck. Hino doesn't count!

    Previous cars includes: 03 WRX Wagon, '93 MR2 Turbo, '91 MR2 Turbo, '85 MR2 NA, '87 MR2 NA.

    Future car: 04-06 Xb & FT86!

    If you're still on stock ECU and want an extra 20 hp out of it, fill it with 100+ octane!

    A month ago, I had a group of these at my shop for a dyno day! ~360-405 rwhp!

    I'm all about 4 bangers with turbo!

    Yeah... This one is a joint project with my oldest son, but since he went down to SLO for school, we haven't made much progress. It should have an awesome power to weight ratio! That, along with the struts, lowering springs, and aftermarket sway bars that we have should make it run with the Evos and Subi's at our local track.

    I have a short driveway, so I only have garbage cans. Can't block the sidewalks here or the old folks can't get around in their wheelchairs.

    2002 Audi A4 1.8 turbo/quattro/manual with sport and winter packages. GIAC chipped, and aftermarket N75 turbo bypass valve.

    2008 VW Touareg with a V10 TDI:



    1995 Range Rover Classic LWB 25th Anniversary:



    And, a 2010 Audi A3 TDI. I don't have a picture handy, but it looks more or less just like this:

    I managed to pick up a 1999 Honda Odyssey for mountain biking. 205,000mi and counting. Runs like a top.

    To regain the man points lost when driving the minivan...
    After buying an E46 that ultimately may have/have not saved my life in a nasty crash six months later, I bought another one
    2003 Performance Package 330i. It's my baby.

    I've had many sportbikes, the last shown below and one of two favs. 1998 VFR the model before it got neutered by honda. A few mods, it was geared -1 in front, PCIII, exhaust and helibars for comfort.

    With that sold, we're left with the slackermobile, an '05 A4. Its APR reflashed for a little more boost but its still a pig. I have plans for a sport/play car in the next few years. 997 C4S maybe, or we might stay a single car family and do an S4.

    Agree about the porsche thing, check 6speed and teamspeed. Lots of folks track and mod their p-cars.

    I helped built that motor, we fully modified it and were able to get maximum HP out of the orginal 2.7 block without boring it out and going twin plug. We got about 260HP and was dynoed at 221HP at rear wheels. The '74 911 was the real last of the lite weight 911's.

    It was a blast to drive it will be missed

    Meanwhile, back in 1989 I had the opportunity to buy, for a mere $8,000.00, a 1982 (or was it 1983???) Audi S1 Quattro Sport Coupe. All it reportedly needed was a valve job. I apparently was the stupidest person on the planet at the time, as I passed it up. Meanwhile, try to find one for less than $80,000.00. Good luck with that. Amazing car. I will never know how amazing it could have been.

    Guilty as charged by the peanut gallery. I've only ridden a couple times since Downieville even counting bike party, but I've spent about 160 hours on Marvin's suspension.

    I'm planning my comeback...

    It's different right down to the VIN. I bought another one so I could play without destroying the originality of the other one. Nick is going to drive it to school.

    The lift comes from putting the springs on top of the axles as opposed to beneath as is original (SOA). Even keeping it as low as we could with the bigger tires the running boards are about 8" higher than stock. The axles are also 3" wider than stock, so it is similar stability-wise. I finished it up in a hurry to get to an event at Pismo Beach, so I need to do some brake work before I really get to drive it around much.

    Folks say AWD is completely unnecessary in NorCal (in the lowlands, at least). True, but even on dry pavement, the improvement in the way the car handles is amazing. You can apply as much power as the car has (granted, which isn't tons unchipped, but certainly decent), and no drama, no squealing tires... the car just goes, pretty much no matter which way the car is pointed.

    Yeah, amazing car. I would love to get a newer one with the 2.0t and 6 speed manual.

    Even in the rain. The 2.0t quattro will absolutely smoke a 335i 0-60 if it's wet. Did I mention mine is a 6-speed? Well now I did.

    I liked my 1.8t GLI Jetta pretty well, but the 1wd aspect spoiled it completely.

    Doesn't it suck not being able to do a burn out?

    Give me a call if you're ever around. I just went past the 500mi break-in period of some new tires!

    You guys have some fancy cars. I've never been a car guy (although i appreciate them) but I sure do love my stock truck.

    For the first time in a long time I only have one motorcycle in my garage though. Motorcycles ruined my life.

    I've been an AWD fan since buying my first, a 1st gen eclipse turbo AWD, in Portland OR. Previous to that I had a mildly modded '69 mustang. Every time it rained (almost every day up there) I was spinning the rear from every stoplight and sometimes just randomly when I gave it too much gas.

    Contrast that to the eclipse where you can rev to 5k and drop the clutch, it just chirped the tires and away you went.

    For a fun car in norcal RWD is ok, but for a daily driver I think AWD is a huge plus. Ask 997tt, he's got AWD as well. I love me some 911 turbos, thats an everyday supercar.

    Thanks. No plans to sell it in the near future. Only around 900 Legacy GT Limited wagons with manual transmissions were sold in the U.S. and Canada and only about 190 were in my particular color combo (silver/black). I've owned it since new and I think I'll be keeping it for a while.

    You can probably guess which end of that range is the most fun, even if it's even more expensive because it's done with silly priced race gas.
    I will fully agree that your car would be a lot more fun, and I'd trade for the mileage in a second. There aren't many people to whom I could say that.

    One of my HS buddies has a 2007 turbo in black with black wheels. He's such a tease.

    You might have seen him around Thunderhill or Sears Pt. He races an electric blue '75 911, full-race, trailer queen. His name is Scott.

    Wow, you guys have a lot of fancy cars! I'm rocking my wife's old '97 integra and will hit 260K miles tomorrow. We got my wife a used 2005 Volvo V50 T5 a few years back and we've been pretty happy with that. But it's time for me to upgrade. If I get the job I've been interviewing for (fingers and toes crossed), I won't need a car for my commute most days. If that's the case, I think we're going to get my wife a 2008 or 2009 Acura TSX, and I'll use the Volvo on an as needed basis/bike hauler.

    If the job doesn't work out, I need to find myself a decent used car I can put 20K+ miles a year on that gets good gas mileage. Maybe a GTI, or even just upgrading the Integra with an RSX.

    RSX is in demand apparently in the used market.

    I'm starting to think that the upper limits of mileage is irrelevant. Sure you CAN get 30mpg but what is your actual average over the last 1000 miles? This is what the car is really doing and what you are using/enjoying it for.

    My Mini Cooper does 33.1 mpg when I soft pedal it on the freeway. But my average for the last 2000 miles according to the trip computer.... 23.7 mpg.

    I'm curious what I would average out on a VW TDI. It's fun and crazy torquey at low rpms and doesn't like to be revved.

    I've been averaging 31-33 with the trusty Integra over the last 200K miles or so. Thats part of the reason why I haven't replaced it sooner, that coupled with the fact that I had to park in a crappy alley in SF for 5 years.

    Now that we're in San Mateo and we have a garage, it's time to bring my '66 Mustang down from my parents house. I've probably put less than 500 miles on it in the last 10 years since graduating from college.

    In my VW V10 TDI, I can't stay off the skinny pedal. I'm also driving it around the city a lot. On mixed driving tanks, I get somewhere around 17 mpg. On long highway trips I get around 23 mpg. These numbers can drop as low as 12 or go up to 24-25 depending on mood, etc. . .

    Long term mpg in the V10 TDI: almost 19 mpg.

    On my A3 TDI (same engine as in the Jetta) I get in the low 30's when I drive it. My wife commutes in it down to San Jose from San Francisco and she gets around 42 mpg when she drives it.

    Long term mpg in the A3 TDI: right around 40 mpg.

    I find the torque addicting on the TDIs and abuse them as such.

    At one point, I had a chipped 1.9tdi in the rabbit. People where so confused when I would merge on freeways. Ended up with a lumpy idle 2 liter 16v on Megasquirt that made around 150 at the wheels on a half ass tune in a 1600lb car. I miss that car.

    Good insight man. I drove the Touareg V6 TDI and that was awesome. There was enough power. This year, they are dropping 400 lbs on that vehicle so it might be a real contender.

    I drove some VW car TDIs too. I think I will end up in the 30s mpgs after several thousand miles.

    Actual over 1000mi is 29.something. It _can_ get 35mpg if you set the cruise at 65 and sit in the slow lane. Since I'm mostly commuting, I often see over 30 for a one-tank average. What kills me is the 9pm race from the parking lot onto the freeway when there's no one around. That mile will reduce my one-way commute mileage by 3mpg.

    That night Justin and I met you guys at the gap I got about 15mpg from work.

    If they made it in a wagon version that didnít have electrical problems (pretty much every VW/Audi between 1982 - when???) then Iíd get one. Wagons rock. They are like SUVs for civilized people who drive considerately.

    Mine started as a Olds Gut-less granny car; not anymore Actually I am the 2nd and 4th owner of the car. I sold it about eight years ago(to pay off bills) to my good friend, who just happens to be a pretty good mechanic in MV. After he went to work on it for about 3 years he neede to "pay off bills." I just happen to run into him on a Friday morning before a Good Guys Car Show where he was going to sell it. I saved him a trip to fairgrounds and bought it back from him. The only thing mechanically left to do was a mini starter and transmission. So I but a rebuilt 700r4 from a corvette which does real nice with 3.93 gears

    I'll have to swing it, literally, by Roy's sometime.

    I tracked both the GTI and the GLI. Both were sold though, and now I'm building a ungodly large valve head for a 1.6 (square bottom end) which will end up with around 12:1 static cr, but with the cam I have it'll drop it down to about 10:1 DRC. Funny thing is I don't even have a car for this motor, yet. :?

    Chris,

    With those gears in back, breaking the rear loose must be pretty darn easy! That is what makes those boats so fun to drive in the rain. You can throttle steer all day long. Next week I am up for a ride on thurs or fri. I want to hit demo if I can on friday. I have to drive my wife over to santa cruz and was thinking about doing a 40 mile ride up Nisene Marks to demo and back if weather ok. PM me if you want/can. I'll give you my phone#. Didn't realize you live so close. I have done this before and met my buddies up in demo for a loop.

    I've owned 7 VWs and Audis over the last 25 years, easily logged over 600k miles in them, and only my 79 Scirocco gave me any grief.

    That car had the old style relay board with the bullet type fuses mounted directly above the driver's wet feet. The fuses corroded easily, but it was an easy fix. Just take the fuses out once in a while and polish the ends up, pop them back in. Done. At random, one of the headlights would cut out if I didn't.

    Another big source of electrical problems is that owners always neglected to clean out the roof drains that go through the body. If junk collected in there, the water would back up into the cabin and pool around the computers mounted under the seats or in the trunk or under the hood. It is part of the Stealership 30k service interval, but they often skipped it.

    My list:

    1980 Rabbit - 160k miles
    1979 Scirocco 320k miles
    1987 Jetta 270k miles
    1997 Jetta GLX VR6(we only put 10k on this one ourselves)
    1999 Audi A4 Avant 1.8t quattro manual
    2002 Audi A4 Sedan 1.8t quattro manual, sport. I guess I'm having a minor issue with the sunroof switch. I have to sometimes fumble with it to get the sunroof to open or close.

    My mom owned:

    62 Barndoor VW Bus, bought in '63 with 3k miles on it... sold it with 650k miles on it. It was exactly the same two tone color as the one Francois posted, but without the 17 upper windows, and no roof racks. It was rusted so badly my mom had to sell it.

    72 Bus... what a POS. First year of electronic engine management, and it was always breaking down.
    Now she drives a 2004 Jetta Wagon 2.0 Automatic. Bought it new off the lot and has 60k miles on it. Never one singe issue... not one. Even her two Toyotas needed some dealer attention in the first 50k miles.

    2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser Touring Edition, the picture was taken outside my college apartment last winter in Houghton, MI. Lots of cargo space when you fold the rear seats down. My bike fits when you remove the front wheel

    My Mini Cooper does 33.1 mpg when I soft pedal it on the freeway. But my average for the last 2000 miles according to the trip computer.... 23.7 mpg.

    I'm curious what I would average out on a VW TDI. It's fun and crazy torquey at low rpms and doesn't like to be revved.

    I have a 2010 Jetta Sportwagen TDI. I get 50mpg on the highway and 40-45 the rest of the time. I have a small trailer I can tow a single motorcycle or ATV on and it gets 40 towing. If I put bikes on top, the mileage drops to 40-42.
    The perf of the little turbo diesel is amazing. It really makes you understand the difference between torque and horsepower. A small car that can really tow and never has to downshift going over summits.

    [QUOTE=motorbacon]I've noticed a lot of the people who post here are also automotive enthusiasts, so I was curious, what is in your driveway right now? I'll allow posts of previous cars, albeit interesting cars. (pshop your plates out if paranoid)

    Currently:
    daily, gti swap project, lifted fox project, and the 75 rocco.

    Previous: 83 gti ad 90 gli. both track/backroad whores




    Put a VR6 in the gti with a turbo, then lol at everything else posted in here. I've owned 2 vr6's and they're real mean!!! I wish I still had one but I sold them for a 2002 Civic SI hatchback. A 20v would be cool too but if you're on vortex I'm sure you've heard the no replacement for displacement a million times in the 20v vs 12v discussions. Also the fastest GTI in the world is a 3.0l 12v vr6 turbo that did 208 mph in the Texas mile. I need to get back in to the dub club.

    It's awesome not having car payments for the last 7+ years. No need in getting a new car for a couple of years. The ones we have are still running strong. And the little one won't be driving for another 2 years.

    Here's my daily driver. Also my first vehicle of my own (not too bad for an 18 year old). 1994 Chevy Z71. 6" Fabtech lift. Centerline Hellcat 16" wheels. 35" BFG All Terrain tires. Flowmaster exhaust. Still doing body work. The previous owner's daughter rolled it gently on its side and all I have left to do is the bedside. Also sorry for the crappy cell pic. This was after a long day of loading, hauling, and unloading horse manure (6 truckloads), so it's covered in mud, snow, and you can imagine what else. I have a 2x10 piece of pine lumber in the back with 3 bike mounts on it and also have a 2 bike Yakima rack for the hitch. Will post pics of the good side, cleaned up, with bikes some day. . .

    Yr 2000 Honda Insight bought used. 62.5 lifetime MPG. Now at 91,000 miles. On a California To Colorado trip I ringed 720 miles out of a 10 gal tank, 72 MPG. Bike and camping gear inside the car. My previous car was a Miata and I am not disappointed in the cars handling for a car that was optimized as the most efficient production gas burner to date. If I go a steady 55 MPG on a smooth, flat road (optimal conditions), that it gets 100 MPG.

    Your user ID caught my eye. My user name could be USAF RET, & my first of many BMWs was a 635CSi, and I later had an 87 M6. Currently a 6spd X5. The last M I had was the M Roadster. No bikes in that trunk.

    Nothing special. But it gets 40 mpg and will spank the hairless posteriors of anything in this thread, and that's good enough for me.

    Not mine (below), but steelies is a very common off-road mod... lets you mount up serious mud tires for off-road trips, then switch back to the normal wheels the rest of the time. And if you rash them up, bend them, whatever then they are easily and cheaply replaced.
