    I was a car guy for a long time; raced BMWs, and owned quite a few over the years, but also Alfas, Corvettes, etc.

    But when I got into studio work, I found I needed cars that I could put equipment into without a hassle. so got into Jeep products and minivans so I could move rigs to sessions without tearing my hair out.

    Now, however, I want a sports car again! Gonna take my time and find the right one.

    Nah, especially given that I have been rear ended three times in less than two years. All three times I was at a complete stop and was hit by women driving SUV's while talking on their cell phones. In the third case the lady was also smoking and drinking her Starbucks while using the cell phone.

    You're just driving in the wrong places at the wrong time.
    It is really hard to beat this.

    Mrs. said I couldn't get another car if I didn't shave.

    That pretty much describes me, except I don't yet own a Challenger and my little ones have long been out of car seats. But my Jeep is starting to show its age, so I'm starting to look at my next vehicle. Haven't decided yet, but I'm starting a new job and it's a bit of a commute so I don't want a gas guzzler. I have plenty of time to look (assuming the Jeep holds out).

    Indeed I am.

    Some of you may have seen my Triumph TR6 at the Experience. (hopefully I never buy an amp at the Experience... I know it wont fit anywhere in that car!)

    AND, I am shopping for a new daily driver.

    I keep going back and forth between the BMW 5 Series, and the Jaguar XF-R. They both have their pluses and minuses... Both fantastic cars, though.

    I am not and never really have been a car guy. But I do have an unreasonable desire for a two door Jeep Wrangler despite its many flaws. I think it stems from the fact that in my youth it was my friends party car as we cruised the streets with the Beatles blasting from the 8 Track with a couple of six packs at our feet.

    I just picked up a new Honda Accord EXL. My old Honda (which is still my daily driver) has 211,000 + miles on it. I'm hoping to get the same out of this new baby. Wow, talk about a culture shock, stepping from 1995 technology to Nav, power everything, lane departure warning...etc. I'm still reading through the 4" thick manual... When I first got the car, I didn't even know how to turn the dome light off.. :)

    Nice, congrats on the new purchase! My 2010 Honda Element is the first new car I ever owned. I'm hoping to get 10 years or at least 150,000 miles out of it. It's only been three years and three months and I have over 50K on it, so I'm right on track.

    You'll get 150K without breaking a sweat.

    So, you're saying, "Yes, I am a car guy." :) CTS-V, right? If you want to get one of the highest performance cars on the road, AND have a place to put your 4x12, this is the correct choice.
