lets keep this real, DONT post about your bike, or stupid crap like that...
  • Please no discussions about 'How do I get my HKS intercooler to work with my GReddy turbo' etc.
  • Please only post your car, discuss with other people if you wish, but don't go off topic 'My mates dads cousins wife has a TRD Supra blahblah'
  • If you want to post pictures, please keep them 56k friendly. If they aren't, please link to them.
  • Off topic banter will be deleted.

Well, since this is GOING to be the car I'm getting (I've already decided 100%, and I'm in the process of looking for one in good condition thats fairly cheap), a 240SX hatchback. If everything goes as planned, I'll have it by the end of the year. I'm getting a job over the summer, and possibly running odd jobs and errands as well, until the next school year, which I'll just keep my regular job. I figure that'll get me about $2000 or so (maybe a bit less, I haven't done the math 100% yet) which I can drop on a cheap one.

Again, this is pretty much what I drive, because I know for a fact I'm getting one, unless something happens and they all disappear of the face of the earth. So don't be flaming me just because I don't have it yet. CAUSE I WILL *dun dun dun!*
Corey
Might as well, After I find a job and raked in some good (HAH!) money, I will be buying a Fox Body Coupe, probaly NOT a 5.0, just a V6 for good gas milage and it will be cheaper to buy. Then I will start tearing out the interiour, add a roll cage and stiffen the chassis, then suspension and brakes. then the drivetrain. Then some SmallBlack V8...

thats like my 10year project hahaha, I want to road race it though...

My dad had a fox body that we got rid of two years ago, he said that if he wasn't able to sell it, we were gonna strip it, put in a cage and whatnot, and race it on the weekends up at Mid Ohio. That car was great... and loud.
Batsu
I don't have any pictures right now, because my dad decided to return my camera due to the fact that he did not like it. I can show you pictures of the same thing, though.

I've got a 93 Nissan 240SX. Completely stock except the air freshener. If you're dumb and need pictures, this is what a 240 looks like.


And I also often drive my dad's Diamante, and again I do not have pictures of it, so I'll just show you this neat one with a nice front lip. VR4!


Mod lists will occupy these sorts of posts in the future!

if you can prove me wrong please do so
pretty much i'm weary over people who say they have nice cars, i say back up with more pics or engine shots? or somehow prove it's yours. i had to post a pic of my car in a certain position over on ebaums to get people to believe me
Diaperzoo
Dude, I was just joking around. You don't have to be such a prick all the time. And technically, it is modded. Those parts didn't come from the Buick factory did they?

Yeah, the car is real fun to drive. Quick and sort of luxurious, which is how I really like it. They are FF, unfortunately. The VR-4 Galants are pretty damn sick. They are AWD, which is pretty damn sick, too. I've heard about Galant GSXs out there, too. Though I've honestly never seen one.

i'm guessing both the gsx and vr-4 versions are strictly over-seas... and taking a guess based on the eclipse i'd say the gsx might be a single turbo awd version

i'm honestly loving the vr-4 galant more and more, i've been looking into it, it's be a great car to have, it's a sedan, so you got a good deal of room, which is the only problem with my car... it's not the 2+2 version so i can only hold me and one person... and the vr-4 is pretty fast stock, it's no M5 off the line, but with some mods i'm betting it could be pretty damn fast, not to mention it weighs less than the 3000gt vr-4... which is so heavy it nearly ruined the cars performance
Ten.
I have to ask you, Nizzy, why would/should i care weither you belived me or not? Its a car ffs.

Well I will be getting a 1990 Honda Accord Two Door EX soon. Yeah.... and I have a 1974 Yamaha Rd250 that is in the basement under restoration...

Okay, this is the "Is this really your car" test.

Now, draw a picture or a note of somesort of something PCA related with it and take a picture of your car with the note on it.

easiest way to prove the car is yours, post a custom picture. put the car manual on the hood and take a picture. ppl do this on a different forum ( a very big forum) and it's a proven way to prove you own the car.

I love my muffler, it sounds great, especially when the car warms up.





OH NOES

Yesterday while washing my Ralliart i discovered a scratch that is around 8 inches long right above the wheel well on the drivers side fender that goes down to the primer... the scratch is longer, but around 8 inches has actually went through the paint... I will have to take her to a body shop in the spring to have the scratch rapaired because it looks horrible. It looks as if something or someone rubbed against the fender, or even maybe took a key to her... I also have some scratches under the passangers side front bumper lip, where i scraped turning around in our driveway before it was paved that i want repaired.
Corey
Thats a shame about the scratch, some people are just asswholes huh.
BudweiserJason8
Yes, everytime i see the scratch i get very upset because i know it is going to cost some $$$ to repair and the worst part is that it is just this little thing, but it takes a lot more effort to repair it then it would actual body damage... because paiting such little spots requires everything to be perfect...
Corey
Mabey save up some more (Keymaks) scratches before you go off and fix the one?

But I understand how ugly scratches are...
SVT
if you want a quick cheap fix that works, go get some finger nail polish that matches the paint. itll protect the metal til you can get it repainted and wont look as bad either. and i was wrong, my can dont look like yours, mine is silver and way huger than that, lol. matter of fact, i think when i get some money, that's the can im gonna get. i have almost no torque cuz mine is so huge.

Thats what my mom has, and thats what i drive that pic is almost exactly the same as my moms too
