I have owned a crap load of cars starting with good ol GM muscle in the early 80s. My daily driver SS396 needed airplane fuel to feed the open chamber big block w 12:1 compression. 11.20s with no traction.

Then on to turbo imports and my favorite vehicle was my first 94 Supra twin turbo.

I stumbled upon my first German car experience when looking at a 911tt back in Colorado. We were living in Breckinridge at the time and about to move to Phoenix. There it sat at the Porsche dealer. Avus 03 RS6

All it took was one test drive. I have owned 6 RS6s since then and 2 mint ones sit out in my shop. They are never leaving these hands

I just recently had my first opportunity to drive a D2 03 Avus S8 and had the exact feeling I had with my RS6 all those years ago. The Avus S8 sits out there with its two RS6 siblings in the shop. We are all going to grow older together.
