I think the reason you don't see more people on the forums is that 99.9% of people don't care about what they drive. Most folks I meet just can't understand why I spend so much money, time, and effort on my truck and car. To them it's just a vehical that they are driving at the moment, they could really care less what it is let alone how it looks. Just my $.02.
I'm in the SW metro area. Just west of Eden Prairie in Waconia. I do agree about most people don't care about there cars cause they see them a just transportation, but there must have been something they liked about the vehicle to even buy it. I think the real reason is that most people don't even know a damn thing about how the car works so they leave it upto the shop to maintain. If they would just know anything about them then they might try mods to make it better. like my mods are going to cost me about $1500 but I will get atleast 2 more mpg and gain about 100 hp and torque.
I have always been a sports car guy. I was going to get the Noen SRT-4, but since there are 6 people in our family. I deceided to find a suv and the Durango R/T was it. I needed the sporty looks and easy mods to get it faster. I just love kickin' ass with those hot shot, loud exhaust, ricers running around out there. You get a bad ass car for a reason, to have fun!! I still hope to get a SRT-4 in a year. Cause the wife took the Durango right away. She absolutly loves it.
Im in Minnesota also. I'm in Eagan (St.Paul suberb). Not many people from the cities because the people who go on these boards are the people who love there truck but unfortunately everyone in the cities loves there civics and acuras, not trucks. So id assume most of you guys are from the more rural areas.
I guess I'm the only one in living IN Minneapolis at this point.
I'm in South Mpls close to Richfield.
I'm originally from Duluth.
Just got my Durango R/T in January.
I've seen some bad ass Dakota's around the Cities but I don't think they go online much or just don't know about this site. I saw a wicked yellow Dakota R/T drive by my work in Plymouth. It looked like the the one from the guy from Mason City, IA. Lowered, body kit and sounded nice too.
Such a site! It made my day!
Working on mods when taxes come in. As of now I have a K&N in and will put the Airraid TB spacer in soon. Next up is hopefully wheels.
