This was my first car when I got my license at 16.

Upgraded to a van a few years later after I developed a decent sized e-mail list. Needed a bigger vehicle to store the candy that I was funneling the existing customers towards.

Thx, @Lathan. And no worries. It's a Maserati GranTurismo. I'm not a gear head either. I just thot it was beautiful.

And yes, @IAmTheJeff, that is a factory paint job. It's actually a dark metallic wine color called Bordeaux Pontevecchio. It is pretty rare . . . which is why I waited to find it!

You guys are going to laugh, but this is my ride. I can afford to buy a car, but wouldn't be able to afford insurance.

This bike tops out at 60kph, and gets like 100 miles to the gallon. It's a 23 year old steel norco frame with a $200 engine kit from china attached to it. It vibrates a lot and it's a stinky 2 stroke. Riding it is kinda like playing with your life if you pin the throttle because bicycles are really only designed to go like 20kph tops.

Below is an ironic video: This is not me driving, but this is my friend's NSX when we were at Road America. 2 years later, the new owner of my ex-NSX crashed in the same way on the same turn. Ironically, this happened about 1 month after I asked him if he wanted to sell it back to me. They really do ride like they are on rails, but you'd never believe it cause we always total ours. lol

:smxD:



Here are some pics of my old NSX when I had it. The first one is from Chicago Motor Speedway. The next 2 are from the Chicago skyline.

It's a 98.5 Audi A4, 5 speed of course. Ironically when I made this account in 2012 the Porsche Boxster S was my favorite car in production. Then in 2013 the Jaguar F-Type came out... next car might end up being a Jaaaaaaaaaag instead, if not another Audi after how great this one has been.

And Jill... the GranTurismo might be the prettiest car ever made.

Mine:

1997 Porsche 911 (993) Carrera 4S (all wheel drive). Somewhat modified for track use/street (I am a Porsche Club of America high performance driving instructor).
Dude, that is awesome :notworthy:! I have been looking for a 993. The prices have taken off!

As for me. I drive a 1995 Lexus SC300 coupe. Fun, sporty, dependable, and fully depreciated. Well, maybe not FULLY depreciated, lol. I know I won't lose much though. I actually bought the car for 9k from a desperate seller, when bluebook value is 10.5k, and that is not considering the rareness of the car (it is a 5 speed manual.)

I love my car!

Bringing this back from the dead...who wants to throw up some rides to motivate the group? Doubt my eclipse will get anyone excited. LOL
Not sure if my GMC 2500 hd will inspire you. Although it's a 4 door so my dog has room to roam. I did beat my friend in a drag race the other day. He in an Audi TT, me pulling a bobcat on a trailer.

I drive a 2003 Nissan Sentra - totally custom paint job because it goes so fast that the paint peeled off of the hood and quarter panel. Actually I dont drive fast at all. Paint still peeled off.

Of course, it's gold

The gauges don't work - well they do if I hit the dash in just the right spot. The gas gauge however is a smart gauge - as in it is smart enough to think for itself and do as it pleases. Luckily, it never tells me it has MORE gas than it actually does.

CD player doesn't work either. I like radio better anyway.

I would have posted a pic, but I sent them all in to Lowrider - sorry

Audi A3 loved this car

Fourth Car :
VW R32

My favorite out of them all was either the BMW 530d or the VW R32 both where fun to drive and have fond memories.

Cars! My favorite thing! Mine is my avatar, 07 Volvo S40 T5 AWD 6spd. Cheap to run, $85/mo full coverage, and actually quite fun.
One of my favorite Euros. Super fun, super discreet, sounds great with the right aftermarket pipes, pretty cheap. Kudos for your taste in cars.

@Jill I am not a car person... not impressed with them in the least. that said that is one beautiful car!!! I have never seen one of those before. maybe I am a car girl after all :p

I am currently without a car... the nicest car I ever owned got totaled in November (not my fault!) I haven't replaced it yet. (driving hurts since the accident :( ) the nicest car I have ever owned was yes a 1998 Honda accord :p it was mint still got 45mpg verified on the trip to its death :(

my husband wanted me to pick a car... so I have :p this is what I want. someday (hopefully sooner then later) he insists I have to have a new car. when I have the money to pay for this sucker in cash then its on...

I want that in metallic blue p85 supercharged plz :)

What really sucks about your total is that it's totally repairable, and you could be driving that thing still. Insurance just doesn't see it as a worthwhile repair. Sorry for your loss :(

No it was totalled. It had over 5k dmg. He hit the center rail between the doors. The drivers door was out of square too. The wheel well was on the tire the cops had to pry it off to move the car. Plus it happened in pa the day before I was supposed to come back to ga. They would have had to ship it to me. Paid 2200 for the car got 4800 for it. (Over blue book I fought for higher value and won) I could have made them fix it. It was not worth it. That car was done...
Eta. The drivers door wouldn't open. I almost drove it back to ga. Hubs flipped n said hell no... once I had to leave pa without it I was done with it lol

All this talk about cars. We went to replace my honda with a newer used one and they talked us into new (well the numbers did) we bought our very first brand new car!






wish we could have really bought it cash but we aren't there quite yet so technically the bank owns it lol. Its a 2014 honda civic ;)

Thanks! I built it! It's relatively easy to put together, all you need is a socket wrench set, zip-ties, a hammer, and something to punch a rivet out of the chain with the hammer to get it to the correct length.

You can grab these kits on ebay for as low as 150 bucks but there are a lot of low quality ones. I got mine from a Canadian site, but here's an American one for guys which I've bought parts off of before: http://www.bikeberry.com/
