Cue, Tunes and Cars. Which do u love?

OK, So three great loves in my live are cooking, cars and music.

I won't ask what your favorite thing to cook is. On this board it might cause a nuclear conflagration. Here's what I will ask"

What's your favorite car of all time? Either one you owned or wish you owned.

What/cha like to listen to when you're cooking?

What/cah like to listen to when you're cooking cue?

What/cha like to listen to when you're driving?


I'll go first.

Favorite car I ever owned was a 1983 300Z.

Favorite car of all time is either a 1968 LS6 Corvette(White) or same general vintage convertible hemi cuda (Purple) . (1984 Lotus turbo esprit too but that's a whole 'nother story.)

Favorite thing to listen to in general when I'm cooking is currently Clapton Unplugged followed closely by some obscure stuff Miles Davis and John Cotrane did togehter.

Favorite thing to listen to while cooking 'cue is Little Feat ... Waiting for Columbus (Dixie Chicken, Spanish Moon, aaahhh love it.)

Favorite thing to listen to while driving is Littel Feat Waiting for Columbus. ... go figure driving and cooking cue.....



And for some reason I haven't been able to get Lynard Skynard's Give me Three Steps out of my head since Saturday.

My most favorite car of all time and the most favorite car I've ever owned, well, I don't do cars, I've had pickup trucks ever since buying a house, easier to carry stuff in. My favorite... the one that gets me from point A to point B and back.

Music when cooking, music when cooking Q, and music when you're doing something else...country, country and country.

OOOOHHHHH Great car!!!!

Jim I'm wondering if you'd know what I meant if I said "missed it by that much." or "Sorry about that Chief."?

Bruce I'd love to get a pickup truck but they won't let them on the parkways out here. (No way am I going to spend my life stuck in traffic on the LIE!)_

Rob I can only say if you lower the cone of silence.

Bruce a few months ago I got a Dodge diesel quad door. Chipped it to 800
foot pounds of torq and over 500 horses, getting 18 mpg, hell of a machine.

So Jim,

Here's a tie in to BBQ ... well sort of.... I'm pretty sure Carrole Shelby did the development work on the Sunbeam tiger.


You know if that's the same guy who markets the chili cooking kits? Not sure if you've got them out there but some of the groceries out here carry a kit called something like Shelby's chilli fixins or something like that.

Anyway just wondering. BTW, I listen to the Alman brothers when cooking chili.

I'm only 31, but I know good when I hear it.
Oh yeah! Z28! Just saw one yesterday at a tire shop. They were restoring it. It had a Hurst shifter, hooker headers, and this big blown out air filter thingy over the carbeurator. Blue with a big wide stripe down the middle of the hood!


What a great car! Can't see a picture of that car without having Three Dog Night's "Joy to the World" going through my head.

Not sure how I know this stuff since I just turned 31 too.

Music for driving: Jazz... mostly Thelonious Monk (anything I can find). I love Monk. Also, all the old classic Jazz.

Que-ing: Jazz, Blues, Southern Rock. Little Feat is Great (your right on the money with 'Waiting for Columbus'). Really like Keb Mo, as well as classic blues. And yeah, Clapton 'unplugged', and the CDs he made of classic blues songs.

Cars: Always wanted an early 60's Mercedes 190 SL convertable (okay, really a 300... but lets get real).

With all the talk about Camaros...I am wondering if you all aren't originally from Brooklyn, NY I bet your favorite cologne is Aqua Velva too

Dream Car: Porshe 911, Black, T-Tops, Big Tail on the back deck, Gold Rims and twin turbo power!!!

Owned Car: Had to be my first car...1986 Celica GTS 5 speed. Moonroof, sport seats, and a nice stock sound system, right Smokin U??

Music: I like rock (Seether, Taproot, AudioSlave, Rage, Filter, Soundgarden, Foo Fighters etc.) I think the most influencial band of my generation was Nirvana and Peral Jam (Class of 1992)

Driving: Smooth Jazz (Geroge Benson, Grover Washington JR., Dave Koz etc.) Also Talk radio (Howard Stern in the morning and Jim Rome in the afternoon) Also, got Sirius Satellite Radio for Christmas and my favorite channels are the comedy channels and the old school rap channel!

Cooking: 90's music or 80's if I get a bug up my ass!!

Rob, I would beg to differ, while there may be a faction of T/A owners in Q/B...the majority still like Camaros...IROC-Z to be "model" specific!

I was right about the cologne though wasn't I:smt046

Greg just took Larry's Girlie-man :smt061 username. You know listening to David Koz is worse than eatting quiche.
