    It didn't take long to notice that a lot of Tesla owners have owned and/or currently own some pretty cool cars. I've personally owned some really fun 4x4's, old Japanese sports cars, and a few bikes. :smile: Here a couple of them!

    My electrician asked me if I realized I have both the safest car ever built and the most notoriously unsafe car ever sold and I replied that I prefer to think of it as I own two cars with trunks in the front.

    Sold the Prius. Now all I have is this:
    81 speed electric assist recumbent tandem trike. The lazy man's ride! We live in the mountains, obviously.

    I own a Ford Fusion Energi Titanium and a Yamaha TMAX 500. Love them both, but I would trade both for a Tesla Model S or X.

    Besides a 2010 Traverse (replaced with Model X next year) and my 2004 Chevy Silverado pick-em-up truck, the following beauties sit in my garage:

    Sad story. Engine blew - bottom end. Crank shaft, #2 connector rod, #2 piston, most of the bearings spun. Apparently root cause was a faulty injector on #2.

    Here's when it happened:



    The GoPro mostly picked up the exhaust flutter, but I was hearing "CLACK CLACK CLACK". In about 1/2 second the following thoughts went through my mind: "Oh crap, there goes $7000!" and "Oh well, keep your foot in it!" That was my best run of the day, and the Honda's last.

    I limped it back to the office and that was the last time I drove it. One of the other participants at the autocross was a Honda tech who always wanted an S2000. The next day he made me an offer, and I accepted. Went out and bought a C6. I'll be seeing the Honda in the spring, because he's rebuilt the engine and will be autocrossing it.

    Wow some really cool rides in here! My wife is in love with the red 64 1/2 Mustang! We have our eyes on a 65' that we want to do a rest-mod EFI conversion on. I'm a Japanese tuner guy at heart but my wife loves old muscle cars. Guess I can't complain right? :love:

    @Doug G, I'm a big S2000 fan, I've had the privilege to drive some amazing S2000s over the years and it's amazing how you can start with a car that is amazing from the factory and always seem to find 100 things you would like to do differently! I can't wait to get our Model S and start messing with it. Thankfully there are a few companies who I've connected with who are going to be making some really neat suspension and aero setups for the car.

    This probably isn't worth posting but the other vehicle in our garage is a 2007 Toyota Sienna.

    I'm on the hunt now for something to race in chumpcar with a friend. That should make my garage much more interesting...

    My other vehicle is 2007 Honda Odyssey with 80K miles on it. I retired 2000 Nissan Altima with 148K miles. I earlier had Honda Accord which lasted 9 years & 160 K miles but was totaled in an accident. So first time I am switching from Japanese cars to an American car.
