    well if it had been pristine, then they wouldn't have believed it was mine.
    Plus, why should i have to?

    You should see the Range Rover after doing 1000+miles on gritted roads at half term. You can barely read the number plate.

    Nice car there Lashout, what insurance group does it fall under btw?

    I've only ever owned two cars, and both of them sucked:

    First car - 1989 Vauxhall Cavalier 2.0 CDi.
    Second car - 1993 Ford Escort 1.8 TDX.

    car = overrated

    motorcycle = Honda CBR F4 and at $3K with a top speed of 165 a 1/4 mile in the low 11's and a 0-60 under 4 secs Its the fastest bang for the buck (plus chicks dig it)

    my trunk only holds a pair of gloves...

    cars don't fall over.
    you can't fall off a car
    cars ARE quicker through corners and around tracks
    cars are safer
    cars don't require you to wear a helmet and gay powerranger reject leathers
    hocardriver doesn't work unlike homotorcyclist
    cars have radios and decent sound system(the goldwing isn't a bike. its a car missing two wheels)

    1st car: '93 vauxhall corsa 1.4 8v
    i've only had it 13/14 months and had it broken into once, the lock forced on the boot but not broken once and the rubber stolen from around the back window.
    next car: something with a top of the range catogry 1 alarm and probably a 1.6 engine or there abouts.
    altho the cars i've driven are
    1.6 petrol ford focus (driving instrustor)
    1.6 petrol P.O.S. vauxhall cavalier (dads)
    1.8 tdi ford focus (driving instrustor after he had the 1.6 focus confiscated by customs)
    1.4 vauxhall corsa (mine :D)
    the tdi focus was the best of the bunch but i dont think i'd buy one.

    Your geting a GN? Man those are some sweet machines. Plz show pics of it when you get it. BTW you can push well over 1000hp out of the gn motor with tourque to match it if you do it rite. Man I envy you.


    EDIT: I have driven but not owned
    95 geo prism (total pos and wasent worth driving)
    90 honda accord i-4 (also a total pos)
    2002 chevy astro (very good for its size and actualy acelerates pretty hard)
    2000 Mazda mpv (not too bad but still underpowered)
    93 plymouth voyager (was actualy pretty decent for a high milage car that had been worked to the ground and still pulled pretty dam hard)
    93 plymuth acclaim (pulled decently for a family sedan)


    I have driven various other vehicles over the years but cant remember them all.

    oh a 1988suzuki samuri (pos with lots of rust and no go) But fun drive for a while.

    my truck

    My dads car is a 2000 Nissan Altima.
    But, my baby is my truck.
    2002 Nissan Frontier so far I have done:
    -windows tinted to 10%
    -spray in bed liner
    -upgraded sound system (components in front rockford fostgate and a shitty sub)
    I hope to within the next year:
    - lift it 3 inches
    -get 33 inch super swamper tires on rockcrawler rims
    -get deer lights
    -a whole new sound system

    Well if we're posting parents cars ill have a go

    dad drives a '99 range rover HSE
    mum drives an '05 freelander SE
    i drive a 206 1.4 hdi
    and our funday car is a 1987 MK2 ford granada..but it's a bit special. It was a prototype for a model that was going to be better than the ghia x. 2.8 V6, recaro interior, on board computer, white magnesium alloys, not a drop of chrome, bootlip spoiler, front air dam, power steering and all that rubbish etc etc. basically a very comfortable family car that will shred to pieces most cheaper sports cars of its era...there were only 7 of them and as far as we know we have the last one.


    Hows that for your damn Jensens and Astons...

    I've had a go at you before mr striker, you boast far too much.

    edit: turns out its not 1987, i think its actually a 1978..
