What do other people think about your car?

I went to drop by my friend's house earlier today to show him a few things on the computer, and he wanted to see my Mustang at the same time...I mentioned to him about how it's not really fast on the straight lines, but it can throw some shit down when on the twisties (Mentioning about how my younger cousin calls my high-speed turns "NASCAR turns")...He was a bit surprised at this, and I desided to take the moment for a neighborhood drive-around to show a little of my car's potential...Low-speed 90-degree turns can't do you much, but still can allow you to show something...

I'm pretty sure I convinced him enough of how well it handles...By comparision, when I rode with him in his '91 Civic hatchback with a D-series engine, he couldn't nearly take the turns as fast as I could...



Some chick at my dad's work think's my Mustang is "cute"...

I like the look on the rice-boy's faces when my little S10 smokes the rear tires all the way through first gear, then catches some asphalt and leaves them in the dust.

And when they finally catch up to me at Home Depot, I've already got a load of plywood in the bed and ready to go.

I had a friend once that drove a hearse. It was a 1978 Cadillac Fleetwood with a 455 Big Block. It had fuel milage that was rated in gallons per mile, but it was awesome as hell.

Just a 455? I'd think it'd have a Cadillac 500.


ElChevelle, not a Hearse, but quite sinister nonetheless:

I don't even need to do that. I stopped for gas in a shady part of town one night around midnight, and some random guy walked up to me and asked me if I had any "tree." I asked him what he meant, and he said "..ya know... weed.." I had to turn him down (i don't touch the stuff), but I thought it was funny that he approached me.

I'm not sure. It might've been. All I know is that it was a Big Block.

My car has the worst turning radius of any car - ever. You should see what it's like trying to parallel park that thing. I drive my dad's car whenever I can, and it's a toyota corola. What does that tell you about my car?

The only good thing about it is it has the most comfortable seats i have EVER sat in.

I love the corolla. It's actually fun to drive. Not to mention it's so little that it can fit into any parking spot.

My dad's Scion xA is so small, you can almost just fit it in with an Explorer and '68 Belvedere in a two-car garage with some alteration to the stuff inside; Even then, you're a few hairs away from the garage door just shutting on the car, but it's a tight and possible fit underneath the garage roof...

You can't even see the damn hood when driving the thing...

I would have gotten beaten for playing in the road. I never let my (now adult) daughter play in the road.

Look, in two hours, I'm 39 for the 4th time. I called my "little brother" in May. He turned 40. I told him that finally he was older than me. I'm gonna be 40 in another 5 years.

OK, so Eagle Talon TSI... Frankenstein turbo found in a junkyard. You have to think about shifting. Diamond Star cars have crappy tranny's. You can however get used to that. It's sorta like driving old rockcrushers.

You'll find me at 22 in a 25 in residential neighborhoods, and sometimes supersonic on empty freeways.

If you want to talk about kids playing in the road. I have a pet peeve. I don't let my DOG in the road. Shows you how much people take care of their kids.

My DOG knows it's BAD to play in the road. Roads are for cars, not a playground.

I would have been BEAT for playing in the road.

Dumbasses... 50lb kid, 4500lb car.... no dice.

Ditto. I look at how kids are raised (or rather, aren't raised) these days, and I just shake my head in disgust. That's a shame, too, becaue I'm not even 23 yet.

I'm 18 and it disgusts me how most people my age do nothing but add to the stereotype that surrounds us. Despite all the arguments I've had with my parents, whenever I see some teenagers acting like morons, I remind myself that I am very lucky that I was raised so well. I am very grateful to my parents that I have moral standards that far exceed most people in my age group.

Same here...I may goof off once or twice, but I'm usually more mature than even the people I like to hang around with, tainting my image though...

Heh, my dad's corolla doesn't even have a CD player. Neither does my car. Although my car also has freon A/C that kind of works.

Corollas aren't necessarily slow, go drive one of the GT corollas or even one of the old 70's Corolla coupes.

As for my car, well...people are surprised I have central locking. I guess that's a compliment.

I compleatly agree with you on that, the majority of our age group need to grow up and unfortunatly there first cars dont normaly help with that. What is this obsession with buying a perfectly reasonable car, then sticking on a load of plastic and putty crap on it? And worse yet is the buggers who cut holes in there exausts, you just want to decapitate those ignorant fools.

Of corse, on the upside, nobody in there right mind is ever going to buy those riced up Piles of crap off them. Pluss better yet there insurance will be though the roof.

You want to reduce backpressure, get a LRES (low restriction exaust system) with them your car dose not sound like a mopehead with projectile diahoria.
