You ever take your M3 up the PCH? When I went out to LA a couple years ago I took my brother in-laws 2011 330 north up the PCH. Amazing drive, scenery and overall time. It's a blast in a good driving car.

I haven't driven my M3 on the PCH yet but have been on there in other cars. It is very nice like you say!

BTW, is your GT 4.6 or 5.0? A friend has one with major suspension mods, it handles like rails!

Mine is the 4.6 I have done a bit of suspension work to mine and it handles "fairly" decent now, no where near the likes of a newer 5.0 Stang though. Even still with some really good suspension work a SN95 Stang will stick to the pavement good. What year is your friends?

I think it's a 2001 or 2002, 4.6 liter as well. He used to run a 100 shot in it! I think he wants to upgrade to the new 302 BOSS... that thing is mean. :bang:

Yeah the BOSS is boss, I'd love one too! His car must be pretty mean too, 100 shot, must scoot. I've never dragged mine, just autocross'd, that's what it's setup for more or less, plus I find it more fun than straight line racing.

I'm sorry but I find it really difficult to take American cars seriously.

I like some of them, it's just they all receive such utterly s*hite reviews that I don't think I could ever own one.

I like the look of Mustangs..

Maybe domestics (USA) of a decade ago or so, however many now are right up there with their Japanese/Asian/European counter parts...

A few years ago I got to drive one of these big bastards. Big Ass Volvo semi from Michigan to Texas. Helluva driving experience and my favorite Big Truck.

I've also driven Freightliners and Internationals.

My current car is a 2006 Mazdaspeed 6. My favorite was my 95 m3 followed closely by my 90 rx 7 turbo II. I really miss my m3.:(
