    This is my sweet ride:

    Cheap to maintain, cheap to run, and can do a solid 20 mph. Can get anywhere I want



    Of course, now I've been infected with a disease that makes me want to buy a better one. It's incurable sadly, and the only remedies are very expensive.

    Phhh, Ford Powerjokes, needs more 6.2 and 6.5 Detroit diesel power.

    Also, fun fact, GM made a 8.1 liter engine ([URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GM_Vortec_engine#8100"]dubbed the Vortec 8100[/URL]) they put in early 2000's Heavy duty trucks. Just thought i'd throw that on the big old list of ridiculously huge american engines.

    Move to rural Canada, that will change rather quickly.

    That had better be cammed and straight piped to let the inner beast out.

    What do I drive? A 1998 Buick Regal GS, most commonly mistaken for a grandpa's car despite having a Supercharged 3.8 V6 that can easily push 300+ hp (not to mention the retarded torque figures) with some simple mods (which i'll get around to doing soon).


    And for shits and giggles I also got a 1987 Chevette that I fixed up, painted and "modified" with a "custom exhaust". Mainly use it for beater car, I should get around to fixing the heater core in it (currently have the input line clamped off) so that I can drive it in this winter.


    And before that my first car was a 1986 Ford Crown Victoria coupe that i fixed up and painted flat black and added my signature "custom" exhaust to. Was unfortunately totaled off by a kid who thought stop signs didn't apply to him, though I got a nice insurance pay-out on it.


    And as you may have guessed, I like cars.

    Saen, terrible affliction, I know it well. I'll have that one though when you upgrade!!

    I drive a '97 volvo s40 se. Cracking car, but getting near the end of its life. Engines fine, but chassis is struggling.

    I use to have a 98, had more trouble with the electrics than anything else, was costing a fortune so it went to the scrap heap about 6 years back, sad thing is the body was solid with pretty much no rust just all the mechanical/electrical side was fucked.


    now I drive a 05 Vectra 1.8, it can do about double the speed limit and has next to no problems so can't complain.


    @cheese that has to be the only mustang I don't actually like, but then if I was going to go for one I would go for the one the majority of people would and get the 67 fastback.

    So many nice and fast cars to be had in america and canada

    In the uk were stuck to like 1.8l for normal cars.

    Looking at getting a 04 citroen c2 for the cheap insurance =/

    Paid £2700 for my first years insurance at 17 third party fire and theft.
