I think it's time we started a car thread, just because it keeeeeeepppps getting brought up on other threads.. i'll start:
1. i miss my miata.
2. need funds for the triumph spitfire project.
3. can't save any because the bimmer is expensive to keep up...
i'm into drifting, autocross and open-wheel racing. i used to sell motorcycles (and owned a few). and i'm into anything old and japanese. :icon_ lala:
Kinda the complete opposite side of the spectrum but I have a 96 Chevrolet 4x4 extended cab truck with a mild lift and big tires. It's not fast, doesn't drift, and isn't Japanese but I guess its still kinda old! Haha.
I love the old thing and try to put a lil money into it whenever I can spare some. Right now its in a good state, the next part of the project is to put carpet in it (it has vinyl floors), sound deadener, new rear speakers, and new seals on the doors. That sound deadener is pricey though! So that will have to wait.
Other than that, we bought a 93 Sentra for my fiance to drive. That little thing gets 20 miles to the gallon. Only thing it NEEDS right now are struts, they are GONE. Then I want a new exhaust, intake, pulley, strut tower bar, retint, get wheels powdercoated, and it should be good to go.
Whenever we get her a new car, that will be my daily driver.
oh, i used to be a jeep guy for like 4 years.. i understand the big stuff!
Bought a mazda rx-8 about 2 1/2 years ago and love it. Very few problems at all, runs great.
sweet, I love Mazdas.. I had a 93 rx7 TT that I bought as a project car but never got around to fixing it.. Also had a 03 Mazda 6 that was one sweet ride.
I deff zoom zoom that's for sure. Gotta love a 9k RPM redline :D
This is my Favorite little toy, right there with my 99 Electra Gluide Classic.
My 1980 V8 Powered MGB. This Picture was taken this past summer at a car event in the Carolinas.
And the afore mentioned Motorcycle.
My New Droid will be used while using these modes of transportation often.
My toy is a 07 Sky roadster, the best car for handling the Tail of the Dragon (love aggressive driving on the mountian twisty roads). We have a very large forum for both Sky and Sols, weekend events are long and very fun!!!
My other toy is a 67 Chev Impala ragtop, a true cruzin car.
Big ole F250 with a big block gas eatin 460
AND the Sam's club dog food hauler, a Ford MiniVan.
