Since the 'Illegal Acts' thread to beginning to steer off-topic onto the discussion of cars, I've decided to make this thread.

Well, I drive a 2002 Camry or 1986 Mercedes E320. Depends which one my parents aren't using at the moment.

We have a big white van thingy. I drive it and look pimp. Minus the pimp.

I don't know the model/make/year of the piece, but who cares? I drive it and if there's a problem...I bitch-slap my dad and say "fix up my ride" and then he beats the shit out of me. But my ride is eventually fixed. I don't have my license though :( so it's tough to feel cool with your dad always right next to you. It's so expensive to pay for car insurance, a car, gas...so I'm glad I don't have my license :) Weird.

I drive a 1979 Ford F-150 Ranger(very rare truck, only 200 made) with a big block 460 engine. I don't mean to brag here but three words: cherry as hell.

I was going to put some pictures of it up so you all can gawk...I mean look at it but my sister's being a real pain in the ass right now and wont let me use her camera.

I have a 2004 Lexus RX. Not my dream car, but it's good enough for me and it's the only car my parents were willing to get me for graduation. Before that, I had a crappy 1992 Toyota Camry LE that was quite possibly the most defective car on the entire US Eastern seaboard -- radio didn't work, seats in the back were torn, doors on the right side sometimes jammed, etc.

It's in the low 12s. Since my back end's so light I'm a little slow off the line.

And I would appreciate it if you all would stop bashing my truck. I haven't said anything bad about anyone else's car so a little discretion would be nice. Not that I really care anyways because someone that says my truck's a piece of shit obviously doesn't know jack shit about cars to begin with and probably is just jeleous because they're stuck driving mommy's mini van or some other god-awful piece of shit and they get rediculed and made fun of everytime someone sees them. While someone like me drives around town, turning heads and has people compliment him constantly on how nice his truck is. So...on second thought, you all can say whatever you like about my truck, I don't give a fuck.

Well, if you morons had eyes you would realise my car was a ford. Unlike keira_lover, i can take the piss out of myself, along with other people, i was just having a joke mate. low 12's ? thats nice, fastest car ive driven was my dads mates 1.3 starlette, it ran low 11's, 22psi extra injector, heaps of work done to that poor little engine. Ive rode in a 10 second rx7, it was insane, one day i hope to get a new engine for mine, a gtx familia 1800 turbo, run about 13 psi with a decent sized front mount, should run 12's, one day :P.

Sorry if I blew a little off the handle before. I tend to get a little defensive when people talk about my truck like that (after all, it is my baby), but I now see that it was just in good fun. I'll try to keep my emotions in check next time. But in the event that someone does say something with malicious intent, you'll all have to listen to me bitch again. So lets keep it clean, mmkay.

Hreh, Micra. My uncle has one of those. Acceleration is notable for being painfully slow.

I share a car with my father, so its hardly anything I would boast about. However the car I drive on weekends (its a project car that my mate picked up dirt cheap that we have worked on for years) is worth a note. Yellow Nissan S15 200SX. Looks like sex on wheels. It might not be as quick in stock form as a Skyline GT-R but it looks 10 times better.

Edit: The pic above is a newer type btw, it's that colour, but this car: http://www.powertec.at/fahrzeugbilder/Alfa%20Romeo/Spider/Spider%20grau%20520.JPG

The acceleration of the micra isn't that bad , specially if you are the only person in it (weight) , and we put new monroe shockabsorbers in it (rear), you've got to start with something , first car only has to work everytime you need it, and that's what the micra does.
and the s15 200 sx, something like this: ?

You are correct, sir. Looks like an Element fucked a shoe-box!
That new TC doesn't look that bad, but the stock wheels are way too small. I see what they are doing, the option wheels are probably another grand, but you are right about that line of cars. Fugly!

I recently returned from a day trip to Galveston, and found the front of my car to be splattered with bugs. There were probably 2 bugs per square inch. I put on a total of 220 miles that day, so I'm estimating at least 3-5 bugs per mile were hit by my car. I couldn't even see through the windshield.

Here is a wide angle

i love 427 shelby cobras though and imo the best looking ferrari happens to be the most expensive (highest selling point was 11mil in the mid 1990s, currently 7-9mil) the ferrari gto :)
