I consider myself a car guy and really like anything interesting. I have probably owned over 3 dozen cars in my life. I'm curious to see what other cars you guys drive/have.
Here is my bolt on C5 Z06.

Wow nice Cars guys. I have driven the C7 Z06, I really liked it.

That Camaro must be a beast? How much HP is it putting down?
HP hasn't been measured. I based the build on a magazine project but went with bigger heads and cam. They made 638HP on an engine dyno. When I redo the suspension/tires I would not be surprised to see it beat my Z. With no nannies it feels faster right up until it starts doing rolling burnouts in second gear. I expected the Z to have a much livelier feel but there are a lot of safeties programed in. A plug in throttle controller helps but I believe the ECU will not allow full opening of the throttle body below 2900 RPM.

Cobras and Corvettes seem to go together well.

My 2009 Z06


Someday I’ll be able to drive this one too

Ford Household

My three car garage is full of Ford power despite having married the daughter of a Cadillac dealer in Indiana.

My first car was a 1963 Studebaker Lark station wagon with the 259 cid V8, three on the tree manual with solenoid actuated overdrive, and air conditioning. Here is the hood ornament.

Another Cobra/Corvette combo here. Absolutely love the C7 but got the Cobra for something a LOT more raw. Even when tracking the C7 and driving it hard, it always feels under control.

Dream would be to add a Gen IV Viper to the mix but the wife thinks they are ugly!
