Default Revival: What are you driving these days?

In the spirit of reviving the forum, what's everyone driving these days. Last year I bought my first Raptor as a daily. I love it! It's my first Ford after driving GM trucks (mostly diesels) for the last 2 decades. This Raptor rides like a dream and is actually a hoot on and off road. I also picked up another GT3.

Two GT3s for now. Iím toying with the idea of building a Ď73 RSR inspired outlaw. If I did, I donít know which one Iíd sell. I think the new one, but this 4.0 motor is unreal.

2017 Z06 3LZ M7 - drove it on track for the first time a few weeks ago at ECR - 135 MPH on the back straight - HOLY MOLY!! This car is BRUTAL!!! An absolute blast to drive!!

Still have the Monte Carlo in my sig below as well as the GT2/TA2 Camaro. My team mate Max and I are planning to race at the upcoming SCCA Super Tour at Mid Ohio this June 1-3 (he's committed, I'm still trying to make it all work out...). I've got something else on the horizon too...soon...

I picked up a leftover 2014 Lotus Evora S from an ex-Lotus dealership out in Albq last summer. Short of the terrible service times that comes with warranty related items with these, it has been a fun little car.

Picked up a 2018 JL Wranger a few weeks ago. It's my third wrangler and is definitely my favorite so far. Jeep did a really good job of keeping what's good about the Wrangler and improving what wasn't great.

I sold my motorcycle last December. I had it for 11 years. After having my daughter, I couldn't bring myself to get on the seat. I'll miss it, but I'll get back into riding when she gets older.

It’s all exploration and camping these days. Not much time for fun on the pavement, so I’m in an LR4 now.

People change and move on, but clearly everyone is still into cars in one way or another. I daily a raptor and dig off-roading as much as tracking (which sometimes includes some farming/off-roading). What I'm trying to say is me thinks there's no reason we can't still get together and enjoy car banter, especially those still driving those sad bimmers. ;-)
