Mike - You're just jealous of reliability! :P


All the cars are starting to look terrible, imo. Some still look good.. some look bad. Evo's are nice looking though, besides yeah, the plastic slab up front. Mitsu beefed up the Lancer a little bit.

And Jace, you might wanna mention that's the JDM/EDM(?) civic and not the USDM. They look quite a bit different around here.

Not only the styling of vehicles is going to poop, but they way they are built. Everything has independent suspension. What ever happened to leaf springs and solid axles and a frame?

Now the newer trucks have nothing on the older trucks ...

Better handling, lighter. Though I do agree, for hauling leafs are a lot better. Then can withstand more weight.

Here's some 0-60s I took a week ago. Like usual, the car is heavily weighed down ... maybe next weekend on my way back to college I can get a video of the Taurus with just me in it. I also had on the winter tires and those made it slower.

I aimed the camera at the wrong gauge and right after I stopped the video I hit a snow drift going 70

In this video I actually backed off somewhere above 90mph but I started swearing at around 87 because I saw a police officer.

Just Honda here to I'm afraid.

Like Dazza said our main ones are Fords (the best) and Holden (pure crap).


My neigbor has an Acura NSX and my cousin has an Acura Civic (dunno if it changes from when it's a honda) and i like in the UK.......

In the Uk everyone goes for big German cars, i have an m5 sport (BMW) and on my way to university i saw like 300 german cars.....

It's like WWII all over again exept with cars! :$

I'm in the middle of the US, so we get the Big 3 (Chrysler, Ford & GM) + a wide range of imports. Have owned most &
I'm a Ford guy, Have a yard full of 'em. (I know, you hate me...). '00 Mustang is daily driver.

The most unusual one is a '77 Pinto Cruiser Wagon (They fixed the gas tank problem in '76, this one's safe). it's a
Sedan Delivery w/ bubble windows like the ones you'd see on older custom vans w/ a factory V6 (yeah, some Pintos had 'em)

Hybrids? In 20 years they will probably be the standard platform. For now they're still figuring them out.
For what it's worth, Railraod Diesels (at least in the US)are actually huge Hybrid platforms so the idea is proven.

I'm looking at a 90 - 93 Integra tommorow or Friday. It's a 5 speed, champange-ish color. That's all I know about it so far. They're rather slow, but they look sooo good, to me atleast :P

Funny thing, American kids talk about the Nissan Skyline having 800 horsepower & going 300 MPH (about 430 KPH, I think)
Do Japanese kids say the same thing about Mustangs?

Haha, we have people around here that basically praise Mustangs. I don't like them, personally. Well, the 94s +, atleast. The body style around the 93 and below.. that one, I like. This kid at my school thought his was badass (Had to be 96+, had the 4.6L EW!) and he was just sitting in the parking lot, revving for no reason. So my friend Randy (01? 3 series) come up in the other lane... and they 'drag race'... needless to say, mustang boy got RAPED :P. Funny stuff though.

Oh yeah, UO, if you havn't read the rest of the topic, I <3 Honda, haha. Not like the fans that think Civuc > all!111.... but yeah, I'm really fond of modded Hondas.

Yea we get that, sometimes. But mow much more did the 3 series cost?

For a while the biggest bargain in the states was the cop issue Fox Body 'stangs (79-94), The State patrols of many states
used them. When they reached a certain mileage, they were auctioned off for around $1500 (US). Left you w/ extra $$$
for things like Nitros (Nos is hollywood crap & offends most of the old schoolers) & superchargers.

The one that really pisses me off is the Subaru WRX. :pissedred: At least he payed out the @ss to beat my '00 V6 'Stang. :gappy:

Truth, but the dude was acting like he was best in the parkin' lot. It was just gettin' shown up, haha.

And yeah, I hate when people say "NOS" like.... "IMA PUT NOS IN MA NEON YOOOO!!!!11" I'm not a big fan of it myself, I mean.. I've never had or used it, just in my mind I'd rather have the money to put into the money and have that "always" power.


WRXs are overrated, imo. Everyone's always like "ooo dey pwn!!1 300bhp factory ratings!@1" I mean, they arn't slow... just not.. fast. Stock anyways. What's even funnier is when mommy buys one for them and they put a BOV on it stock xD Funny. I wonder if they notice they lost ass end power and are running rich? Probably not.


This dude in the autoforums at another forum was tryin to get suggestions what to do to his neon...... funny stuff, he got flamed out of the place, haha. Why can't people just leave cars like that alone and DRIVE IT!

In US models, I think the WRX is around 245. In the light body, you don't need much.

The guy revvin' just let the car go to head. What next, fart mufflers (Really HATE those things.

The guys w/ Neons usually grow out of it, but keep the cars for gas mileage.

I've heard that people on these forums like fords. : / not good. there was an accident infront of my house where a 2000 ford (forget the model name now) went off the road. the interior of the a-pillars looked normal, the exterior looked normal but the inside was rotted. and that was just a 2000. more proof why GMC (and chevy but there is a differance) and volkswagen kick more ass then ford ! :D

GMC owns Chevrolet..?? There's little differences in the trucks and such, like Ford and Mercury.. Chevrolet and Pontiac.. but they're basically the same.. things. Slightly different designs, but drivetrain compontents and such are really the same. Volkswagen has had their fairshare of mistakes, btw :P Take the MIII (Or is it MIVs?).. the later 90s / early 2000s cars.... severe electrical problems. GTIs = <3

It's sad how many people put gayfartcans on their car. I saw a first gen. RX7 with one on it. I respect people's cars, and don't believe in messing with them... but I REALLY want to rip it off of there. Hate it.

There's some clean cars around here, dispite all the V8 mullet boys and wigger ricer kids. Some nice looking Preludes (4th gen.. 92 - 96) and two 240sx... that I've seen so far. I don't get out too much, so I don't see all that much. There's this STi with 20 inch rims on it though, wtf. I hate on these people because performance > all. You can get the best out of your car, and it still look good and not gaudy.
