Default You have a C6 Z, what are your other rides?

Just wondering what everyone else is rolling around in

I had a 2013 BMW S1000 that got stolen a couple of years ago
I think my 580rwhp Z06 is fast but that thing was scary. I miss it but it's probably for the better, I'm still alive.

I have a red '09 Triumph Daytona 675 which is a lot of fun. Great midrange power and the sound is so unique, it is an inline-three.

2012 STi which I bought new. Subaru bought my 2010 WRX back from me in 2012 @ 13,000 miles after 7 visits to 2 different Subaru dealerships unsuccessful in diagnosing a loose connection at the firewall that carried the MAF signal. The car would intermittently act like someone was unplugging the MAF while you were driving and then all of a sudden it would be fine. I used the check from Subaru to pay off the rest of the loan and upgrade to the STi. It has about 400hp now and 29,000 miles. It is SO much fun in the snow and easy to control with the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D tires.

2003 Imola Red BMW M5 that I bought in 2014 with 40,000 miles. It was a trade-in at Mercedes Benz of Chantilly. I was a BMW technician for 10 years and it was always my favorite car they made. I bought it while I worked at a small independent BMW service shop and fixed everything wrong with it before I quit. RF caliper replaced, LF wheel bearing, stainless steel brake lines, front and rear pads and rotors, new OEM clutch, Rogue Engineering X-pipe and short shift kit, Dinan exhaust, Michelin PSS tires, new thermostat, new right side tail light (was cracked), LED halo bulbs and rebuilt both vertical and horizontal headlight adjusters. My dad polished the headlight lenses for me. Replaced Servotronic valve in steering box that controls flow rate of power steering fluid based on Sport mode. Did valve cover gaskets at my friend's house. Rearview mirror started leaking so I replaced the glass myself. Reflashed ECU to about 430hp. It is a blast to drive and I will never sell it. My favorite part is the sound. Looked 2 years for this car, the color is rare and it seemed like every red one had 120,000 miles on it. Despite the mechanical things it needed the price was great, interior was like new and exterior only had a couple of dings.

Nice to see that you got the swap into the ZR1 completed for the bride. I'd love to see that car in action but it looks like they took T-hill off the schedule for the Optima series. Not happy...not happy at all!

My stuff, in no particular order-
2002 WRX- blue of course, original owner DD
'69 427 Vette- mods and performance stats in sig
'70 Z28 (avatar car)- original owner. Love this car!
'08 Z06- info in sig. Rich will be seeing this car soon for some upgrades.

Considering finally letting the WRX go and replacing it with a new Caddy ATS-V or new Camaro ZL1. Kind of conflicted about that whole thing but really like both of the new cars.
