    Nothing special? Wow I have a P4 2.4 and a 3.2 just seems awesome (I do have a gig of dual channel though and an Ati Radeon X1650 512 mb AGP graphics card though). Custom or pre-built?

    Sam here, I'm a car and computer buff. My cars a 96' firebird formula, which is almost always on the jacks.

    Thats a sweet pickup in the background of your pics you should get on restoring that. :D

    I'm also a car/computer guy. I'm driving a '01 Audi A4 Quattro right now but I still miss my '94 Camaro Z28. I plan on getting something faster in the near future. And when '09 rolls around I will be getting a brand new Camaro! I probably sound like it but I'm not really a American only car guy, I appreciate anything that is built well. That's one of the reasons I got the Audi, the interior still amazes me with how well it's put together.

    :)

    Thats cool, never knew you were are car guy. Audi's are great cars. I've been in an A6 Quattro before the interior is excellent along w/ ride quality. Can't really go wrong w/ German engineering. Thats sweet that you had a '94 Z28 w/ the good old LT1, I used to have a 93' Firebird Formula Automatic v8, and recently got the '96 Formula manual 6 speed. Love it, almost as much as it loves gasoline. It gets tuff when gas is up around $2.80 during the summer. Having a nice 4 cyl daily driver would be nice, but I don't have the room to store another car.

    That truck is out back of a house where i grew up, i kind of snuck in and snaped that pic. I would love to have the room to do it though:).

    Btw if anyone cares, my Grand Am has the 3400 V6 engine with a cold air intake and a flowmaster 80 series exhaust with custom painted interior pieces also the grills arecustom andpainted blue. I belong to a Grand Am club that has an annual meet about 50 miles from my house that i attend. We have about 18,000 members world wide. If you wanna see some more Grand Ams better than mine skip on over to gaownersclub.com. Thanks.

    Yeah, I loved my 'ol LT1. It was a great car, I had an auto also. I always wanted to do a 6 speed swarp, but never had the money. The funny thing is my Audi gets only a little better gas mileage than my LT1 did. I'd usually average about 18-19 in my LT1 and I only average 21-22 in my Audi. The AWD and turbo really eat up the gas mileage unfortunately. I keep thinking about selling it to get into something that is a little more economical, but I just enjoy driving the car so much. If it had about 50 more hp I'd never sell it. So I keep thinking of doing a couple small mods to up the HP. I'm not sure. I've got to fix a couple small things on it and see what I decide. I know if I get something that's better on gas mileage i'm going to miss the build quality of my Audi. It's a hard decision. The biggest thing is my wife and I are trying to get all out debt paid off, so that's why I keep thinking about getting a gas miser. We'll see what this year has to offer.
