I like foreign performance cars - have owned 3 Porsches and 5 BMWs - in my opinion the 850 series BMW was the most beautiful (5L v-12) but.....they're "old"

my most fun cars were 1) a Porsche 356, 1600 Super I had while stationed in Germany and 2) my 2008 BMW M5, 500hp v-10 which I drove from Tejas thru Kali, Oregon and Washington and back

I went from 2 wheels, 2010 Harley street glide to my mustang and I'm having a serious love affair with it. But what not to love about a 2016 mustang GT 5.0 pushing 435hp with a 6spd manual......❤️❤️❤️

I've never owned one, but, IMO, the first gen M5 is top of the Mark.  Years ago I was an SCCA boy racer type and fell in love with 2002s - yes I had one in 2002.  That one was fitted with an M3 motor 'cause getting passed on the front straight at Texas World Speedway only to be blocked by the cars that had just passed by turn 3 me got very old and annoying.

Right now (until my 1986 Lariat is completed), my DD is a 1982 MB 300CD.

I've always preferred American muscle. My last four cars have been a '02 Z28, 03 Base Corvette, 09 GT 500 Mustang Cobra and
a '11 Corvette Grand Sport. I posted a picture of my last corvette on this forum a year or so ago. That being said as I'm pushing into my mid sixties my left (clutch) knee just aint what it used to be so in February I traded my Grand Sport for a '15 Genesis  430 HP 5.0. They were offering 13K off of a MSRP of 52.5K. Couldn't pass up the deal. All the options even air conditioned seats. Nothing like crusin' with your boys chillin'. First four door luxury car I ever owned. 0-60 right at four seconds.  :rocknroll2:

1994 M-B C220.

As several members here know, my 300CD AND my treasured (and just restored) 1986 XLT Lariat were DESTROYED by a drunk driver, while both were parked. =  The drunk was only doing 70-80MPH in a 30MPH zone, when he wiped out the 2 vehicles.
(I replaced the 2 vehicles with a 1994 M-B C220 & a 1990 F-250 Custom.)

After all the money I put into my 98 Dodge quad cab long bed it still runs very good and
will keep it till it dies.
The wifes car is a Hundai Sonata with the 4 cyl -16 valve engine and it is very good on gas, 32 hwy. and 27 city w/ac running.

My 2016 Ram Laramie Longhorn 4x4 EcoDiesel. It was a retirement present to myself. Picked it up October 9, 2017, and we have put ~ 37,000 miles on it. Headed back to Wyoming and South Dakota in July. I have averaged about 24-25 MPG overall, and could not be happier with it. "Guts, Glory........RAM"............................

The wife unit likes her 2012 Ram 1500 with the HEMI.

She told the local dealer the only thing that will make me look to buy a new truck is if they come out with a Hellcat 1500.

that's what my wife needs, a 700hp pickup.  :th_thicon_lol:
