Does anyone know where I can get those pentagon shaped tires like those on a top fuel dragster at the 1000 ft line?

To make it faster, I was going to try and add a jet engine on the back....will the jet engine be able to fit in the trunk, or should I just put it on top of the car?

<Insert any 2011 Mustang question here>

My buddy flies fighter planes and says he can beat my Camaro, do you think I have a chance?

If I buy the non GM locking lugnuts will it void my warranty?

To winterize the Camaro, I heard that you're supposed to remove the taillights and store them in a room with air temperature of 70 degrees. This is true, right? If I don't, will this void my warranty?

My faves:

My wife/girlfriend is sooo short, she can't even ride a carousel/ferris wheel legally, yet she feels compelled to complain about the pass. seat height making her want to vomit...what can be done?

The dealership said that the car can get 20 something mpg, yet when I drive it like I stole it all over the damn city, how come i only get, like, 10 or 12 mpg?? Is this something I should talk to my service dept about? Concerned..

I let my 10 year old son pump 87 octane gas in my 93 octane camaro..which fuses do I pull out and for how many weeks??

Where the HELL is the battery?? Next to the spare tire?

My car keeps making a funny tapping sound like someone is knocking on the back glass, and it scares me because nobody is back there..its not random, always at the same time, and in a definite pattern like its man made and supposed to do that...is it supposed to do that??

My car came with an owners manual, did anyone read it, and if so..was there any info in it I should be made aware of?? Did anyone else get theirs in a sandwich bag? Where is the sandwich and what kind was it?

I spent the extra $$$ for the upgraded wheels, am I supposed to get more than one set of wheels? How do I get them home?? PLEASE HELP!

Where is the link to the thread for the LS3/SS/RS/supercharged/chevy/camaro/V6/V8/306HP/426hp emblems, as I need to replace mine since the HP is really MORE than they said it was...dammit, now everyone will be SO confused!....I can't find it! Disregard the fact I probably don't NEED to find it as my car looks like it has more emblems and logos than a pro race car...PLEASE HELP!

How do the emblems look? Does it look clean, or is it junky and gaudy??

Is the Wright Brothers High Wing spoiler ready yet?

Why does the GMPP additions for the Camaro not add any HP or torque to the car??

Okay, so maybe the last one is legit....just seeing who is paying attention.

Wait a minute now, My Camaro is black but my Colorado is VR. You can see it in my Camaro5 garage. The girls all say it's sexy. Not my fave color for Camaro though.

What was this thread about again?

I just ordered a convertible Z/28 for $32,000 and it should be here in one month. Is that too long to wait? My grandma who smokes cigars and wears combat boots bought a new vet and it was there within a week.

I got pulled over for driving the wrong way down a one way street in reverse while doing 125mph in a 32 zone with a joint hanging out of my mouth and an open bottle of grain alcohol. I called the cop a douche and he still insisited on ticketing me, can you believe it? So does anyone know how I can fight this in court?

My favorite so far. I must have read at least 4 threads about this today alone. By the way, do hockey stripes make my ass look fat?

Other than the constant bombardment of the same questions over and over, the one that stands out in my mind is:

"Why do the doors sound so cheap when I open/close them".
