My wife's daily driver and the fun in the sun car - 2012 VW Eos

Both are fun but in different ways.

Quoted from KrustyBurger:

My fun rides are a '14 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT & '16 Corvette Z51. (The Jeep can double as a pinhauler, but I typically use my '11 Honda Element as it's far easier to load/unload - not pictured) On a separate note - I've seen so many cool rides in this thread, including classics, muscle, sports, foreign, luxury, SUV's, trucks, etc. - what a diverse group we are!

Love love LOVE the JGC SRT8 - Such a nice looking vehicle. I REALLY wanted one but I didn't think a pin would fit too easily, and the price was just too much for me, even used. My Durango R/T is not as fast, but given the trouble and mileage I get with the 5.7, a 6.4 probably would have been a BAD idea. LOL Both your vehicles are fantastic!

So instead of getting an SRT8, I settled and got an SRT8 steering wheel for the Durango

Quoted from Fulltilt:

Back home today after spending a couple months with my friendly mechanic.
Oil leaks fixed, water leaks fixed, transmission working like it should.
For the first time I cruised the interstate at 80 with a working overdrive! Sweet!

This is awesome. My grandfather had one of these that he bought new. it was so cool. His was all red and one day in 1984 he traded it in for a Mazda RX-7 - I thought my grandmother was going to kill him. LOL

Cool ride and thanks for the pics, they really took me back!

Quoted from ramegoom:

What people don't understand is that an opened-up exhaust can actually hurt performance. With a stock profile cam, there needs to be a certain amount of back-pressure in the exhaust. This keeps the combustible mix in the cylinder longer, instead of scavenging it out into the exhaust which happens with less back-pressure, at the top of the RPM scale.
Burning it in the exhaust increases EGT temperatures and reduces engine power.
A bigger exhaust system isn't always better.

oh yeah?

I would say that also in the article it says....

"There are plenty of variables to consider, like the talent level of the driver, track and air temp on the day, and so on. Also note that many past test times were achieved from a standing start, instead of the current-day practice of rolling starts.

In the case of Honda's test (as previously discussed) the car was stripped of its rear seats and given a floating cage. "

I get what you're saying though . Technology keeps implroving, and this will keep happening.

Quoted from dmacy:

Has anyone used Racedeck in their garage(s)? My 12 year old epoxy (U Coat It) looked great for first few years of heavy repair use on both lifts and has looked horrible for the past few and has gotten worse.
Have looked at their stuff for years on Garage Journal but now that I don’t do heavy repair stuff anymore, I like this option. Would be going with a mix of diamond and free flow as we park our daily cars/truck in there. We have a small detached 24x32 garage.
Pics of current and installed in 2005.

We have a different product by the dame manufacturer in our basement after a flood destroyed the Pergo we had down there. I sent you a PM.

Quoted from MacLean:

Just curious, how did you install the RaceDeck tiles under the pool table? Did you have to dismantle the table?

I lifted the table with my pinball lifter. Just enough to get the tiles down. Did each side seperately. Did not dismantle the table.


#1023 1 year ago
Quoted from Roostking:

Wait, you covered up the tile, for that? Lol.

Not sure what you mean, but maybe I'm just not awake yet. We had pergo in the basement but that got destroyed in a flood, so we got the Deck Tile to replace it Or did you mean the pool table?

Quoted from mymalibu:

Cool thread, combine two of my favorite hobbies, pinball and rides. This is my 1968 Chevrolet Beaumont custom. For my American friends its a GM "A" body platform made in Canada only. Its all Chevelle except it has a GTO dash and year specific front and rear treatments. Its one of 3744 V8 cars for the year. My pin hauler is a 2011 F150 4X4. I know ,I know whats a GM classic car guy doing with a ford...truth is it was to good a deal to pass up, and in fact I really like the truck. 3.7 V6 runs great and does what I need it to do. Cheers.

Nice ride! That is very unique and I have never seen one of those before. Nothing wrwong with having a GM and a Ford. It's like Having a Williams and a Stern pinball machine at the same time

Not big Horsepower, but fun to drive. And a hardtop convertible with a sunroof is pretty cool! 2012 VW Eos.

Quoted from tjprice222:

silverunicorn - nice Eos! As a fellow VW fan, it’s my responsibility to recommend goapr.com if you haven’t checked them out already. The Stage 1 tune is the best dollar to performance mod available anywhere if you want to get some more power out of that 2.0T. I did it on my Tiguan and the difference is unbelievable.

Thanks! I will check out Goapr. Sounds like a no brainer

I always liked the V's. Doesn't this have the same motor as the Corvette Z06?
