Past - 3 Supras twin turbos, all sold in August. I may pick up another down the road.

Current 1400hp GTR and a turbo Corolla (which will be replaced with the RS)

I've been lucky to have quite a few nice cars.

'95 Civic
'93 Benz 190E
'03 BMW M3
'08 BMW M Coupe (should not have sold this one)
'08 BMW 135i (tune / full bolt-ons, very quick) probably the most fun
'12 VW GTI (bolt-ons and tune) quick and fun, just left me wanting more
'12 Mustang GT (tune / boltons) fun, just heavy and sloppy
'13 Subaru BRZ (e85 + boltons) good car, just crappy build quality and not a great DD
'13 Mini Cooper S (tune) wife car

I didn't include a few of the more boring ones like trucks, but you get the idea.

Going to be trading in the BRZ, can't wait for the RS.

First car was an 82 Prelude. After that:

1990 Acura Integra
1992 Acura Integra GSR
2005 Ford Escape
2003 BMW 540I me sport (shouldn't have sold this one)
1990 CRX commuter.
2007 BMW 335I (current)
1996 Civic hatchback (current commuter)
2012 VW GTI (current)

The 335I is by far the fastest of them, and while modest by some standards it still goes (JB4 tune and downpipes are only mods). My favorites were the 5 series and the GSR. That e39 was just a perfect combination of looks, build quality, torque and chassis balance.

what turbo kit is on your GTR?

We have 2, one with 1000hp and one with 2000ish hp. Not sure if you went to Ohio drag races a month or 2 ago (lose track of time)?

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo (great car, took me and my family reliably to 200k but was starting to have issues)
2004 Dodge Neon SRT-4 (blast to drive, pretty reliable @ 120k and counting)

The funny thing is that I'm not a huge Chrysler fan or anything. The Jeep got passed down to me and then when I was looking for a fun DD I liked the SRT-4 best out of my price range.

1966 Mustang, 289ci, auto. Had to buy it from the used car lot I stole it from trip to Mexico with girlfriend whose parents didn't want use together(plus 2 others), everyone in the neighborhood knew where I stashed it, repainted lime green with 12 cans, added side pipes and 5spoke mags. How they found out is a completely different story.
1969 Fairlane Cobra, 428CJ, first engine I rebuilt, with some help from Dad, second choice of cars between it and a '69 AMC Javelin AMX. Dad said get the Cobra=I love my Dad
1973 Mercury Capri, 2.8 v6, car I bought with some intro $$ going into the ARMY, Ft Campbell, Ky AirBorn Battalion

1965 Mustang, 351CJ 4speed
1968 Mustang GT, 390 4speed, rear frame rails kinda rusty, so after some time started looking for a good body to transfer drive line
1967 Fairlane GTA, bought the whole complete car from salvage yard, put my built 390 with C6 auto
1968 Mustang GT, swapped the motor again, but bought and built a 428SCJ with 427 HighRiser heads and intake...car could pull stumps up

While I didn't have just one, theres the daily drivers, some not proud of, some I was

1965 mercury Comet, 289 Auto

2001 Dodge Durango SLT, bought for wife 2 but had to choose which one to keep, I like cars...
1989 Merkur XR4Ti, built up engine and a A4LD to replace the C3, have kept installing RS parts for it since 2004, bought a Cosworth driveline from '92 model, had shipped from England while I was in the middle of building the Focus RS Clone
1988 Merkur bought and later sold
1987 Merkur for parts

2003: New year

2003 NEW Focus SVT, Orange EAP package , at 6k miles put a Vortec SuperCharger system on, flipped it in 05, bought back from insurance, stripped, moved S/C to new SVT
2004 Focus SVT. Black EAP package, 6900 miles, flew to Philly to drive back to Dallas, drove up on Skyline Drive in the Rocky mountains, after 90miles of sawing back and forth, just missing the deer, I had to get off and back on the interstate heading home, installed the S/C on this one too
2004 Focus SVT, Blue EAP package, gotta love them, bought this after a 90 yr old pulled in front of my Black one, again bought back from insurance, bought a 02 donor ZX3 to build the RS MK1 from using as much RS parts as I could get, the wiring from the SVT, engine, RS trans, the rest is history, 9months later the RS Clone is born.
2002 Focus ZX3, donor car

Who is we?

I did not go to the Ohio drag races nor the Texas Invitational.

It's a BL1300 kit. What's done to the 2k hp GTR?
