Default Is anyone else bored with their car?

Lately I've been so bored with my car and I don't even enjoy driving it any more. The car just sits in the garage and collects dust, anyone else has the same problem?

it's not the car it's you. you can jump to toy to toy be happy for awhile till the new wears off then you'll find yourself right back where you are now. won't ever change till you change. take some time and really think about what your unhappy with.

Just pin up gear and break some heads, broly.


Or you could go to the track and get crushed.

Always room for another V8 builder. Should help the boredom.

I'm not bored, but then, my wheels, turbo, roll bar, frame rails (etc.) are all still in their boxes.

I've been there before..... I always want something else, then I get it and its not enough. One thing I've learned from jumping from one toy to the next is that the grass isn't always greener on the other side. Stick with it and you'll be happy again....I mean how many other cars:

1) are as cheap as the miata to own and upgrade
2) have a well developed aftermarket.
3) have the same size enthusiast base.


The list can go on and on, but you get the point. For a limited amount of coin, your car can change dramatically, giving you that feeling again.

What don't you like about it? What would you improve on your car if you could? What do you think you'd like better?
