My dad's car is now for sale, see the link for all details and loads of pictures. I doubt anyone on PCA themselves will be able to afford to insure/fuel this car so if anyone's got any relatives or friends who'd be interested send 'em our way

when was the last time he kept a car for more than a year?

glws to him though.
Ben.H
Hm, I'm trying to think actually. Believe it was his 2006 Nissan Navara he had from new for 3 years. So yeah, that one, when he replaces this he'll be on his fourth car of 2011, like a boss!
J.red
it seems so common now days. people don't keep cars for very long. I know a kid, he's 18 now i think and he's had an eg civic coupe, an ek civic coupe, an ef civic sedan, an integra, a civic wagon, a audi s4 a 240sx, and now an audi s6 wagon. all since turning 16.

I've had my civic since december 2005 though toung.gif
Ben.H
Yeah, well in my dad's defence he'd keep it if work was better. That guy's car history sounds sick, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't slightly jealous.

Awesome that you've had your Civic so long though, I've got it into my head that I don't want to ever sell my first car, whatever it may be, because there's a high chance it'll be worth next to f**k all if I were to sell it, so I can just keep it on the drive, probably pissing my dad off somewhat

Very cool, I recommend if you buy a citroen
J.red
haha. yep, i don't plan on selling my civic either. When I get my degree and a full time job, I plan to buy a new daily once i have the money and then the transformation will really begin for my civic. I plan to build it into a track and show car then, but still keep it somewhat street legal. My goals are something like sub 1800lbs and around 250whp N/A when that happens.
Ben.H
Sounds similar to what I'd like to do, to be honest. Good luck man

we keep our cars till they crumble to dust! or become illogical to keep repairing.

cars today just arn't build like they used to be. growing up we had 2 1970s Chevy Trucks, and some 90s and now a 2000s truck. the 70s where vertualy indestructable and if they did break big deal fix it yourself in an afternoon. now you can barely tough a car without it disentigrating gasp.gif let alone making it do any real work...
J.red
all of the cars were perfectly fine when he sold them. he just got bored of them.

except the Integra. He totalled that one. It did 5 end over ends. and it was a true gsr with a jdm type r front.

I was extremely pissed when i heard about that one.
Hellrazr
Mine has a inch of dust on it but it still starts up ohmy.gif

And drives and its from the 80's i say the German's knew there s**t back then!!!

New cars are based on a 5 year run and then just rust out and fall apart so cheap its sad and they want so much for them gasp.gif
J.red
it's more that people don't take care of cars like they use to. people take them for granted now and expect them to stay tip top shape with no upkeep.
