What are some American cars that look like weebshit? What are some Japanese cars that look like boomershit?
Despite the detriment to my physical and financial health, I am absolutely obsessed beyond my control with cars, and car culture. Why? What fucking good is it?

What's the weirdest/ghetto-ist/dumbest thing you've seen?

When i start my car, it has a tough time starting. It usually stutters on the first crank, but never fails. Also, periodically my power windows wont work within a few minutes of the car being started.
Is this a pretty talltale sign of battery going out?
Would you buy a sub-100 HP Sidekick? Is that safe for a first manual vehicle? I don't drive particularly fast in my automatic. Safe and steady.
I have the 16 valve version tracker, which I think is over 100hp but not by much. Plenty of torque but don't expect to bust 85mph even floorboarded in 5th. It's pretty happy around 65-70mph on the highway though.
The thing is a cracker box if you're talking about safety. It's very light and rides high. But it's reliable, good on gas, cheap to work on, will go just about anywhere a big jeep can go etc. It's pretty fun, but not safe.
Ive always liked the Supra and the 2jz motor that came in it and have always wanted one. BUT, since Supra's are out of my price range and are slowly growing in price, I figured the next best step would be to get a different model car with the 2jz in it.
In /o/'s opinion which is the better car between the 2?
This is gonan be a project car and most of the money is going into the engine and suspension. I'm not really worried as to what looks like. Just something that will rip up the road.
Is there anything that explains how a Honda automatic transmission works, since it's built different compared to other automatic transmissions?

Any diesel technicians/mechanics out there? Is working on these engines any more difficult that traditional gasoline engines? And is the pay a bit higher?
If you are doing basic preventative. Then it is easier. They design them for most things to be readily accessible . If you are doing failure repairs. It is a pain in the ass. Because everything weighs 4-8 times as much.
Mercedes 190D 2.2
Is this a good price? It seems to be in good condition, has only had one owner, an older guy. Also, how expensive will it be to maintain? Will it need repairs often? Are parts hard to find? This will be my first car, if I buy it, taking a look tomorrow morning. Also, anything in particular to watch out for when looking at it?
It's worth that much, but i wouldnt buy it for that much. At most 950$.
Ball joints, rear shocks, and all the electricals are common problems.
I've had many 190's. The diesels are extremely reliable if you don't redline the shit out of it and floor it a lot.
Check the suspension all around and check every single electical thing.
190's are great dd's, and the diesels will last you forever if you drive them properly.
Does /o/ have any pictures of cars not sold in the US, in the US?
Yes, that is a Twingo with Illinois plates.
You and your waifu are about to close on a house in the suburbs. You arrive at the property and await for the Realtor, Sue, pic related, to arrive.
What vehicle does she show up in?
How the fuck does Haggard Garage consistently pull $500 Miatas? Can't find any in that range even in a 500 mile radius of my location.
Hey /o/ my 2004 passat is having some front end issues that i cant figure out.
When im decelerating the steering wheel starts wobbling and shaking really bad, I know its coming from the front drivers side wheel because it starts making a really bad rubbing noise.
Would anyone have an idea as to what it might be? I was thinking a control arm bearing or wheel bearing but im not sure.
Is body rust really so bad?
