The problem I have over the many years under my belt.... is that I have WAY too many hobbies that I like to do and NO money for them all... or at least for them all at the same time.... So I have a little hobby going here and there and everywhere....

Things that I love to do... photography, computers hardware, home theater, my miata, im the founder/president of my miata club, my motorcycle, my koi water garden, my garden tractor, guns, are just some of them...... well at least I enjoy doing them when I get a chance. If I was single, I would be in debt out of my ass because of all these hobbies.... BUT instead, i am in debt with life as a family man with two kids... lol....

I agree, too many hobbies and not enough money.

Heck,. I don't even have enough money for my computer hobby, yet alone my hunting, general firearms hobby and skateboarding

Nope, I don't have enough money to "keep up" with my computer hardware hobby either. Just look at my specs. :P

Thanks Brendan, but in regards to the Miata, well.... that's ok by me.... that's why they make hundreds of models of different cars... i'm sure there is one out there that will fancy your taste.. lol :D

oh by the way... would you like it more if it had a corvette LS6 V-8 in it and was putting out 423HP at the rear wheels all packaged up in a vehicle that weighs around 2400lbs?

This link shows a particular miata with that engine in it and within all the pictures there is a dyno picture showing the 423HP at the rear wheels... http://www.ls1miata.net/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=25

By the way... this past summer at the end of July, I saw and had a ride in one of these type of miata..... all I can say that it is scary... not in a mean way... but in a good way... the car runs like a normal car with the exception that it had a heck of alot more HP for a vehicle that weight this light. With this engine, the car is 6 lbs lighter compare with the original 4 cyl.. this is due to the LS6 being all aluminum top and bottom vs the 4 cyl's alu top and cast iron bottom. Also to top it all off, the vehicle still retained it's original 50/50 (front/rear) weight bias. But... still.... there are alot of cars out there to like besides a little O'L chickie Miata... LOL

Specs have nothing to do with your "passion" for your interest.

That's a shame: A GM power plant in a Ford automobile. I'd take one of these over that any second:
http://fordcobraengines.com/427_Cobra2.htm

It's a 351 Windsor pimped to output 530 hp. I have a 351 Windsor in my 231,000+ mile '94 truck. Those things are damned workaholics. The whole 530 hp engine costs in the neighborhood of $12,000 by itself. It would be hard to get it into a tiny Miata though. :(

That's simply amazing G.G. I like your car, and those fishes were so sweet! :)

I'm currently employed, but once I'm unemployed it'll be difficult to keep up with the hobbies, to be honest, I'm fed up with the job already, boy I wish I could do something new now, as it is really getting frustrating for me too.

FORD aren't much popular in INDIA :P:P

They're too big for your roads and too costly for your pocket books. XD

Currently, I'm looking at Audi A4 TDI at 70 mpg. :O!



If i recall correctly they're 59MPG.
*EDIT* It's 52.9 mpg



Im a straight GM guy, LSX engines> Everything else



Have you ever seen the LS7 Pontiac Solstice/Saturn Sky? you can go as high as a twin turbo LS7 pushing out 900HP

GG, I'm gonna give you a call in a couple years when my "tractor" is due for an engine rebuild :) BTW, how many years worth of carbon was that? Those were some crusty cylinder heads!

That was a competition for highest MPG over a set course so, for example, they didn't have the air conditioner on. They also kept it at or around 50 MPH.

For normal road use in USA, probably. Still, it kicks the ass out of most other vehicles out there today as an all-around package (ehm, Toyota Prius).


There's a lot of sources referencing that test:

That's for sure, American roads are amazing, my brother lives in New Jersy, he have couple of Nissan Altima there (2005-2006 I guess), I've seen some pictures of the car, where road is also pretty visible, I'd love to drive a car in the United States. My brother was in India few months back, he hated New Delhi's traffic conditions, and I agree its really sick :D

How come you guys drive left handed?.. Shifting gears with right hand..lol :D
