Car Nut Corner: All About Cars

Do you like cars? Anybody ever tell you that you talked about cars a lot? Like to work on cars? Have a question about a car?

I love cars. I talk about cars all the time. I talk about the ones I've owned, the ones I've seen, and the ones I'd like to own. I'm told I'm a "car nut". I think that means that I pay more attention to cars than the guy that called me a "car nut". I like drag racing, I like NASCAR, I like Formula One, I like the Soapbox Derby. I like the new Lexus, I like my old '68 Dodge Coronet R/T.

I've liked every car I've ever owned, and I've owned a few.

I like '48 Chevy Fleetlines. I like Bentleys and Bugattis and Buicks. I like Cobras and Vipers and Fiat 600s.

I like to talk about horsepower and chrome and crankshafts and rear ends and paint. I like to talk about fixing cars.

I like to tell the story about stopping on the side of the highway in the middle of the desert in Arizona at midnight to look at the Milky Way. I like to talk about lightin' up the Sticky Mickeys. I like to see the outlaws comin' around Turn 3 all sideways. I like to see a car go from 0 to 325 mph in less than 4.6 seconds. I like the go-carts with the 1100 hp motors. I liked makin' out in the back of my '50 Ford Woodie in high school.

If you want to pick a fight with someone that doesn't feel the same way you do about cars, or pick a fight about anything else, just click over to another thread right now.

I'm pretty busy and I may not be around, but if you like cars, or want to talk about fixing cars, or have a good picture of a car, or anything else about cars, you are welcome here. You don't even have to talk about cars!

Just be nice.

Welcome! There are no anti-car-nuts here.
