Heyyyy!! I'm NUTS about cars. race cars, racing, drag races, anything!! I like to talk about cars, drool over car models. I enjoy fixing my car and my project car irl. I also enjoy doing little models with glue and paints Smile

I'm currently getting my Beretta car fixed cuz of the shocks are wearing out Rolling Eyes

What is your favorite car and why?

I am a Beretta girl!!! I am the proud mommy of Betta Cavy Jordan my 1990 red beretta.

Do you guys name your cars? if so what is it? and be honest Smile

Hi!

Is it OK to mention French cars here?

Or Norwegian?
(Bet you didn't know we made cars in Norway)

Want a sexy looking car?
Get a CitroŽn SM
That V6 and twin carburettor setup sounds... nice...
The full glass front on some models and that rear end...
(Can make a Lamborghini owner weep)

Another booooring fact from the Lion: The CitroŽn DS, when introduced in 1955 sold 12.000....

wait for it...

Wait for it, I said!

on the VERY FIRST day!

Okay.. now you are all talking my language...

I watch almost all forms of racing... my favourite is World Rally though...
In fact I've built models of most of the cars in the WRC...

The H2 is nice.. but I'll take a Porsche Cayanne or VW Tourag first... or my favourite crossover.. the Infinity FX45.. <drools>

There's always this site for comic relief: http://www.beaterz.com

Beyond that, my current drive is a '96 Contour SE with a manual transmission and a subdued color taht does nto attract the attention of officialdom.

I checked out one of those once when I was in the market for a new set of wheels. The cockpit fits me as if it had been designed around my form. The power-to-weight ratio is VERY impressive. It did 0-100kph in just over five seconds. I think I had more fun on that five minute test drive than in all the rest of my driving experience. Very Happy

"So, Concolor," you ask, "what do you drive now?"

"A pickup truck," I respond. "A small pickup truck. Chevy S10. Four-banger with little extra power, and if you turn on the A/C it takes about fifteen seconds to get to fifty klicks." Rolling Eyes

"That all you got?"

"Well, my wife drives the Chevysaurus. Also known as the 'S.S. McInnes'. Also known as a Chevy Express (15-passenger van). Both vehicles were bought used."

"Excuse me?"

"You heard right."

"What on earth do you need a behemoth like that for?!?"

"Well ... when we bought it, we had a household of thirteen people. And five of them were in diapers."

" Shocked "

"Yeah, that's kinda how I felt about it, too. Fortunately, the other family finally moved on, so it is just the six of us now. Thank the Lord! But we still have that big ol' van."

Excellent!!

Yep Vipers are nice Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy how about Corvettes? hmmm *smiles*

Yeah your right H2 does look like a tonka truck lol. *laughs*

About fitting in cars. I used to drive a 1990 ford white Mustang and it fitted me at age 16/17 but then now I drive a Beretta like i mentioned and it is perfect fit for anyone. One day I went for a test drive in another 90 Mustang and it doesn't feel right or fit me o.o

I guess it was a certain time period it fitted me heh.. I am eyeing a 1978 Ford Mustang more likely a Mach II I would like a red one Smile

peace out for now. \/ Smile \/

That's what's nice about my Contour SE - it fits the form I have now. Now, time and money permitting, I could install the "goodies" from a SVT Contour with no external differences; 'twould make quite a "Q-ship".

a 1978 Mach II fastback would be 'bout the only version of the Mustang II I'd consider. The "notchback coupe" body style has, IMHO, a bad case of the uglies.

The Contour is the first car I've had with enough power to get me into trouble; previous cars were a '78 Fiesta (good transportation and, with the right aftermarket goodies from Europe, not too bad to drive), a '71 Capri 1600 (I think I found every problem there before there was a recall on it), and a '64 Fairlane (not bad but my folks bought it witht he smallest engine Sad ). Given my druthers, I think I'd go for a BMW M3.
