Rolling in a '99 Honda Accord LX sedan. Had 66k original miles on it and a clean and clear CarFAX when I got it May of 2010. Heck every single service record was in the glove box. Right now it has a little over 99k on it. And the only thing that needed to be done was change the power steering belt and the timing belt and everything that goes with that back in the spring. It'd be a perfect project car if I could afford it. Has an F23A4 engine in it that I'd love to turbo

When I was in High School a friend got a 100% on a D.A.R.E. test and they gave him a D.A.R.E. duffel bag. Two years later, a drug dealer that was a friend of ours at the time asked to borrow something to transport 2kg of cocaine in and he handed over his D.A.R.E. bag. He brought it back to him with an oz of weed in it as a thank you.

05 Mustang V6. It had only 13,000 or so miles when I bought it around the end of 06 and has now just under 83,000. I'm considering trading it in for an Escape, but the damned things look like they have to much plastic in the front that will just crack in half and all of the ones in the area that are less than 2 years old have the same amount of miles as my car. I can't see in paying for a 2 year old car with 80,000+ miles on it.

2011 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart, wanted an Evo but I figured I'd get this for now, then trade it in for an Evo in a couple of years.

Still has all wheel drive, turbo, dual clutch etc

I actually wanted that car, seemed to have most of what makes the Evo fun without the Evo price. I'm rolling a 2005 G35 coupe, like this one except in a gold color.

Calls this what you may, but I would say that Blacks actually benefited from the slavery. Comparing the current lives of many African Americans to Africans, one can see that the former live in much better conditions with greater freedoms and opportunities.

Nice, I drove the ralliart's when they came out. Then my friend bought an Evo X.. So I ended up going !@#% that.....

I think my only complaint about it was that the tires were too narrow. Very fun car to drive.

Very nice. I actually looked at the CTSV sedan before getting the ISF a few years back. Got some track time in the sedan last summer. The engine is just a monster.

I got the MDX because it left me room in the budget for a new pure weekend sports car but that won't come until next summer. The GTR is on my short list along with the 2013 Shelby, had a couple high power Mustangs over the years and am thinking of going back.

Nice. GT-R is a great buy if you can fund the maintenance. The Boss 302 Mustang/Camaro ZL1 are also pretty sweet. But the Boss 302 is going away for next model year though.

My brother left his E90 M3 when he went off to china. So if he doesn't return for a couple of years I'll pick that one up. But I'm pretty sure he'll come back.
The new Tesla S is getting some awesome reviews. A few years down the road and the tech/infrastructure will really make that a viable option

I was hoping this thread was about CheapyD buying a retired Wienerschnitzel Weinermobile and turning it into the CAGWagon, and then driving to the next E3 straight from Japan. I imagined him doing a lot of laps on whatever boat he was going to use to get over here.

Had a '95 Escort LX years ago. As much as I hated that 88hp piece of crap, it sure as hell took some serious ass abuse. After I had that, I swore to never ever own another car that had a double digit horsepower rating

When I was in High School a friend got a 100% on a D.A.R.E. test and they gave him a D.A.R.E. duffel bag. Two years later, a drug dealer that was a friend of ours at the time asked to borrow something to transport 2kg of cocaine in and he handed over his D.A.R.E. bag.

Just detailed my RSX by hand this weekend and some shithead rear-ended it this afternoon. Fucking pissed about that because body shops tend to suck ass when detailing a car after a wreck. On the brightside, no one was hurt. Was going to post a pic of it too.:cry:

Had to spend thanksgiving away from my cts-v. But got to spend sometime with the e90 M3 coupe when I went to my parents

Posted Image

M3's got great sportiness quality to it and there are some definite pros over my cts-v despite being slower. However they really are just different vehicles. I might just end up owning both if it works out that way.

I'd love to be afford a nice sports car. Always had a soft spot for Porsche.

As is, I drive a 1999 Ford Explorer with 227,000 miles. At least it only cost me $800 when I bought it two years ago. Drive it until it dies.

This thread makes me want to trade mine in.

I've been driving an 2008 Jeep Patriot for almost four years. It's a 2.4 with a manual tranny, so it has a little pep with decent MPG. But this thing has been the biggest piece of shit I have ever owned. As soon as it rolled 40k, it started having problem after problem after problem. I'm to the point now, with about 68k on it, that I stopped giving a shit, as long as it runs and passes inspection, I'm happy.

I'd be furious if I didn't get a steal on it. I only paid $10k for it when it was only a year only and had 10k miles on it. Unfortunately, since I was the second owner, the lifetime warranty was non-transferable. I've owned nothing but Mopars for the past 15 years, but I think I'm done after this one...

The day I brought it home:

After 8-9 years of Neglect I finally decided to wash, clay bar, polish, and wax my car. Took a long ass time but the result is pretty excellent. Esp the Meguilars #21 Sealant I used looks great.

Hopefully I can get my first car soon, I have about $4,000 saved. I have bought a 1988 Toyota Camry for my older brother to help him get to work and I have helped paid for his 1999 Jeep Cherokees repairs on the engine. I also once helped a female friend buy a 1979 Toyota Pick Up, Ironically I have bought and help paid for cars but never owned one I'm 23 now haha.

Well, I'm a n00bie, so I can't post pictures, but I drive a 1992 Chevy S10. Single cab, bed, no power accessories, automatic tranny, and a 4.3 under the hood. It's an S10 "Tahoe" edition, so it has a neat trim package on it.

I outfitted it years ago with a Pioneer deck and new front speakers, also Pioneer. That deck is a bit outdated now, but not terribly so. Heck, the whole truck is outdated. About 2 years ago, I put in Kicker 4x10 rear speakers. The stock speakers were still there and still not working. Then, almost a year ago, I put in a sub system. The sub is an MTX Thunder 6000 10" being pushed by an Alpine MRP-T220. I bridged the amp, so it's pushing about 140 watts through the sub, which is just above lowest acceptable value. Bumps pretty good, although I have built a custom box which houses 2 of my 10" subs. I just need to get an amp to push them and THEN we'll be rollin'! ;)

I'm going to just post my visual history of autos later. Loved every car Ive had. Only one that really let me down was a 99 Intrigue. Everything went bad at once. Cool factor went to the 69 Camaro RS, and most fun to drive was my E30. Most useful is my Tahoe LTZ 4x4 used as the baby hauler(doesn't mean its stock though). Wife's favorite was the C4 Convertible.
