    Default Cars

    It looks like this might've been discussed before but most threads are locked.

    Please feel free to use this thread to talk about cars you have, had, or want to have.

    Are you a car enthusiast? Do you know all the specs of your ride? Rant or rave about cars all you like!



    Personally I'm not huge into cars. I certainly don't care to know all the specs of what I drive. My current car is, however, a very pretty cherry red 2005 Mustang convertable I bought off my uncle. Before this I had a pretty rough old Saturn.

    My little sister buys a new car every few years and while I'm glad she can apparently afford to do that I just don't really see the point. If it runs and gets me from point A to point B in relative safety with working lights I'm happy.

    Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.

    I'm not very knowledgeable about cars. I own a 2014 Hyundai Accent. It's the only car I've owned. I bought a relatively new car because I didn't want to worry about it breaking down any time soon. My only complaint is that it doesn't have cruise control. Every car I had driven before had cruise control, so I didn't think to check. There are aftermarket cruise control kits which aren't too complicated to install, but I've been hesitant to buy one.

    Well, I've got a 2004 Nissan Frontier Desert Runner as my current daily driver and a 1992 Subaru SVX as my garage queen (due to transmission issues).

    @Wio , I'm surprised to hear your Accent doesn't have cruise control. I would've thought by now it would be a standard on all vehicles.

    I have a Dodge Caravan that I've removed all of the back seats. I used it to sleep in when I was in Los Angeles and drifting. I love motorcycles more than any car or truck. Any brand of Harley Davidson over 1200cc. Preferably the Night Train line. I also prefer panheads.

    Default Re: "The Way of the Road"

    I have a 20-year-old Corolla with 100K miles, worth maybe $700- $740 with the newer headlight lenses. No power windows, no power locks, no cruise control, no interior trunk release, manual mirrors, aftermarket stereo and speakers reused from the last car, and no intermittent wipers- mist, off, slow and fast only. Oddly, it does have AC, but everything else was an option somebody didn't want. Insurance costs me $25 monthly, I get 30mpg in town, and I am forever confident on the road because so long as I don't die I will win nearly any battle of financial attrition in a traffic collision. My car can be totaled and cost less than most new cars' bumper fascia.

    The upholstery color patterns look like they came from a bus in the early nineties- lots of overlapping pastel triangles on grey and beige fabric backgrounds.

    My Trek bike and its bags are probably worth more in a hasty sale.

    This is my very favorite car. I call her Michiko.

    Currently I own a 1994 Ford F150 as my daily with the 5.0l V8, automatic, two wheel drive, single cab, A/C, power windows and locks, and the cool lumbar adjustment in the seat. My grandfather gave it to me a month before he passed, and I'll treasure it always.

    Now, because it was given to me and I'm a landscaper that uses trucks daily, I didn't want to beat up the 150 any more than I already have. I'd been searching Craigslist (say what you want, but Craigslist has been very good to me) for a little over two years to find the proper pickup I wanted to be my work truck. I wanted it to be built between 1973 and 1979, because screw new vehicles. They cost too much and I don't trust them farther than I could throw them if I was an 80 year old man with Parkinson's. I wanted a single cab for better visibility / less blind spots, and extended cabs were mostly what I could find locally. I wanted the 460ci engine and automatic transmission, because I tow my landscaping trailer around all the time and backing up a trailer with a stick isn't that fun. Most of the trucks I saw had either a straight six, or small block V8s and were stick. I wanted four wheel drive, because my 1994 is two wheel only, and again, a lot of the ads I saw were for exactly what I didn't want: two wheel drive.

    In December of 2018, I saw an ad for a 1978 F250 that had been used at state fairs as a pulling truck. Single cab, has a built 7.5l 460ci V8, a Dana 60 front axle and Dana 70 rear (I will never ever get stuck in this bad boy), 35" tires, automatic transmission, and the option to run straight pipes by taking a couple caps off. The truck was listed for $2800, and I got it for $2650. By far, the best and most truck I could have asked for, especially at that price. So for the cost of a used car from the late 90s, I essentially got a race truck. It'll set you back in the seat, lol. And sounds phenomenal.

    My girlfriend's car is also pretty sweet. Her grandmother gave her her old 1969 VW Baja Bug, sent it over here to Connecticut all the way from SoCal. Needs a little work to get it 100% (new alternator, clean the carb out, and a little rewiring), but this summer we should have the time and money to get it back on the road! It stays garaged during the winter, just to keep it pretty.

    Sig and avvie set by the wonderfully talented and amazing Bou. <3

    Featuring the laptop I always used to complain and talk about in chat.

    I may not use it anymore, but I still have it!
