What is the best thing that you like about your ride?
The it'll peel the paint off a Corvette and leave the guy sitting at the red light wondering what just happened.
Do you like tinkering under the hood, or do you leave repairs and routine maintenance to your mechanic?
I do all of the work on my hobby car but not on my daily driver or truck.
What special touches have you added to your car that reflect your personality and individuality?
Nothing visually – it looks just like it did when it rolled off the assembly line.
Under the hood is where it counts!
What is the most you've ever paid for a car? What is the most you would ever pay for a car?
Do you have a great memory of a date that relates to you car? Describe that night (or day).
The night I drove it home from Detroit.
Do you find yourself more attracted to people with similar car tastes to your own? Or doesn't it matter?
As long as they like speed then we're good.
If you had an unlimited budget and could change anything you wanted on your car, what modifications or accessories would you add?
There's not much more I can do to it that already hasn't been done.
Do you think your car has a personality or soul? What kind of sound or behavior does it have that makes it unmistakably your car?
Yes. It sounds like it's going to rip the blacktop off the ground.
Have you upgraded the car stereo? What is your "dream" sound system?
The factory system is more than enough noise for me. Car audio hasn't made me hard since I was 19.
What aspect of your ride most attracted you when you decided to own and drive it?
There's not much that didn't attract me to buying it.
Have you ever pushed your car to its performance limit? What was the fastest speed?
Are you kidding? LOL
11.86 @ 122 mph, top speed is probably around 170 but I've not driven it that fast.
Are you a member of any car clubs or other auto related organizations?
What was the first car you ever had? Do you ever get nostalgic for it?
86 Buick Skylark T-Type. Not really – it was a fun little car though.
If you could trade your ride in for any other car, what would it be, regardless of the price?
If you share a burning passion for your car like thousands of other gays, now
you have a chance to let the world know. We don't just want to see
your auto-obsession, we want to hear all about it!
