Kind of car do you have?

Post by Code-Red » Thu May 17, 2007 10:00 pm

Thought I'd try to get a large thread going here before I leave again. Post up your rides fellas. Since most of us are older now, I'm assuming we all have cars now. Throw up some pics.

I've got a ton more, but I'm not going to spam up this thread. I'm planning on swapping in a 3.5 V6 from a Nissan Maxima sometime this winter. Right now it does 15.38 sec. @ 115km/hr in the quarter, but I'm looking for something lower than 13.

Anyways, I'm off for another year. See you guys later.

2001 GMC Sonoma. Basically its a small truck that eats gas. Seemed like a good idea last november when gas was down to about 2.25 a gallon. Kinda sucks driving 30ish miles round trip to work 5 days a week now :/ But I have needed a truck. Too many situations where I have needed a truck to haul something, etc.

I have a 93 Buick LeSabre with 180k miles and is missing good chunks of paint. I decided not to post pictures of it.

My wife has a 91 Bonneville with 270k miles, but it is actually in good condition on the outside.

I drive a 94 Jeep Grand Cherokee (which gets a whole 12 miles per gallon). On the bright side, its good in the snow.

1997 Nissan Sentra

And lots and lots of dents, broken headlight, punched off rear-view mirror, torn off interior ceiling.


Still runs.

2001 Mazda Protege

Dirty as fuck and needs new brakes. Great car though, never even a hiccup when it comes to running.

2007 Hyundai Accent hatchback. I think there was a topic either here or in Null when I was getting ready to buy it. Everyone's surprised at how small it is when they see it, and even more surprised at how much room there is when they get inside.

I've had it for just under a month now, and overall I've been very happy. I took it on an extended road test two weeks ago by driving down south to visit my family, and no complaints.

...Until three days ago. The CD player ate my copy of At War With The Mystics, and refuses to give it back. It knows the CD is in there, but it won't play it and it won't give it back to me, so I think I'm going to have to take it in to get the mechanism adjusted.

It seems to be a curse in my family; my parents' '93 Dodge Caravan stopped reading CDs six months in (it would just eject anything you tried to put in), and the radio burned out on my dad's Pontiac Grand Am just a month or so after he got it...and the Honda Prelude he had before that had something wrong with the tape deck.

2005 mini Cooper, red body white roof, with company logos on the side (lease car)

its got 60k kms on the clock so far

ive had it for two months now, and i absolutely love it, its the fastest thing ive driven to date, suspension is very firm, so the thing corners like a madman. the one and only downside is the fact it doesnt have much space in the back/boot, but i only cart around myself most of the time, so i dont really care

havent done any race testing or whatever, but it should do 0-60 in 9 seconds and top out at 200 km/h

2000 Camaro Z28. It's been through two fender benders and a collision with a demon dog, and is suprisingly running like a champ after 150k miles. Of course...gas sucks at 12MPG, but she sure is fun to drive 8-)

:o

What did you do in two years to put that much mileage (kilometer-age?) on your car? Since it's a corporate car, I'm guessing maybe you run deliveries, or are a regional sales rep, or something like that?
