Nice.  I like cars. 

ditto!

I just love my '67 Mustang . . . I just wish it was running. SO many repairs, so little money. 

As far as games I use to be a huge addict for the GT series.  I was a fiend in GT4.

Then I got into Forza, which is good and all, but it just didn't have the same pull that the GT series had for me.

Nice year on that stang. Thats why I like the newer body style of the mustangs. They brought back the great classic muscle car look. My favorit modern muscle car is the Dodge Challenger. My dream car is a 71' Hemi Cuda.
And Bada with that Vette you have you should love cars. Nice car I'm not a big Chevy guy but I do recognize a sexy car when it's made. Like the new Camero.

she's a '71, big block (454) LS5, TH400 automatic, tire melter.  I've worked the motor with a mild cam upgrade nd had the heads milled to what should be 11:1 compression ratio.  No mufflers, just baffled strait pipes exhaust.  Those harley dudes think they're loud?   When my secondaries kick in you can hear me comin form the other side of the county.  I also own an '87 buick grand national wth 39K orig miles on it, I've worked that baby too and she'll run low 12's all day in the quarter.  Best time I had was 11.88 @ 122MPH.  Probably going to sell them both soon and buy a factory 5 cobra kit to build my own.  Need to check that off the list before I go to muscle car heaven.

Oh the exhaust you have reminded me of my old truck I had. It was a 94' Dodge Ram 1500 with a 318 v8 with true duel cat back exhaust. There wasn't any mistake if I was on time or not with that truck. Oh that was a great sound I miss it now.

Badad's Forza 3 tuning tips.

Here is the setup tool I use http://www.forzatraders.com/forza-motorsport-3-car-setup-tool.

You'll need basic vehicle parameters obtained from the upgrade shop (weight, % distribution, tire width, driveline type) and tuning settings (front and rear downforce). Anything above an A class should have adjustable spoilers installed or tuning won't be as effective. Always do weight reduction, tires, and suspension first, then add power to get you to PI (performance index) max for that class without going over. If a vehicle's PI maxes out mid or low class, it may look cool but you're kidding yourself if you think you will win on anything but easy. Once the initial setup is done do a test drive on a circuit. Hit the down arrow on the D pad and the telemetry screen will pop up. Hit right arrow on the D pad until you get to tire pressure, make sure tire pressure is adjusted so all tires are between 34 and 34.5psi. Then arrow over 1 more to tire heat. After 1-2 laps the tires should be up to temp. This is the key parameter I use to determine if the tune is good. You want the temps to be between 180 and 220, and be within 2% for outer, middle, inner. After that you can make adjustments to the downforce if the car is loose (oversteer) or tight (understeer). The real trick is finding that balance, maxing out both front and rear downforce will never give you that balance. I usually start with 75% front downforce and 40% rear downforce for front engine RWD cars. This will work for most medium circuits, (sedona, sebring, Road America, Atlanta, etc). You would lower downforce for track like Lemans and increase downforce for Fujimi. Each time you adjust downforce you need to go back and retune (spring rate, bump stiffness, etc.) so save your tunes then you can upload them for the specific tracks. Hope that helps.
Re: which cars to start with, you can use any car but realize that you have to stay within the class needed for the event, lower class cars (F,E,D) don't require too much tuning or parts for race season but if you want to be competetive in multiplayer search for some good tunes in the storefront.

I have always had a thing for Porsche's myself. 

Here is a shot of one of my little creations. 
*edit* Crap, can't seem to get the image to load up.  Check out my Forza 3 shots for my Mountain Dew Porsche*

Speaking of Porsches, in Forza, can anyone give me some feedback on the Porsche 911 Sport Classic?  I have been eyeing this model lately and want to get a little feed back before picking it up.

It's not too bad, I prefer a 550 myself, but that's just my obsession for speed

So, now I got a really fast S class time on the Old Le Mans.
