Having trouble deciding on a new car - Thought, maybe just go out and buy a bad ass muscle car, you know, treat myself to something nice for once. So I go to the local Ford place, and sit in one. The interior is the cheapest shit I've ever seen. The interior of my 2001 Sentra is better made. I mean, the rolling knobs on the dash are wobbly, the rocker switched are loose, the dials are hard plastic. Everything feels cheap to touch and feel, and looks like a cheap kids toy that was made in China. Ford, are you fucking kidding me? And has the Automotive press even said anything?
>wants muscle car
>complains about the interior
>give a man a car and he will drive for a day
>teach a man about corollas and he will drive for life
>show him your friends, and he will talk about his car
>show him /o/, and he will talk shit about every other car
this asian girl I know has a father with a camry with 500k miles on it and he bought it new in the 90s
>yfw the toyota meme is real
Found a 2002 Volvo S60 2.4T for $~3k
Specs from google:
Number of cylinders: 5
MPG: 21 city / 28 highway
Engine: 2.4L 5-cylinder
Towing capacity: 3,300 lbs
Fuel tank capacity: 21.1 gal
Horsepower: 197 HP
Good gas mileage, nice horsepower to weight so it's under 8 seconds for 0-60 which is fine for me i'm not a racer.
What are the negatives to this car?
how do i make a subcompact car feel more like a landbargue?
Can a car which falls into the water be repaired? Or is it basically scrap?
Ofcourse it can
But, if it can be repaired with the goal of it being worth more than the initial value of the fucked car + price to fix depends on the car, how much you do yourself and so on. On a general basis; no
I want an old British car; I am thinking Triumph

Tell me about this car.
This is the incredible Hainan Xiaohuohua electric sportscar from China, featuring a super sleek and futuristic body, painted in a bright Ferrari red. There is only one example in existence at the moment, but more might follow if there is enough interest from potential investors and buyers
The Xiahuohua is based on an low-speed electric vehicle (LSEV) platform, purchased online as well. Top speed is a somewhat disappointing 30 kilometer per hour;
While waiting for the money to show up he handily rents the car out for wedding photos and shop openings and such.
Chen studies automotive engineering at the South China Agricultural University (web), but plans to drop out soon to focus completely and solely on car design. He started working on the Xiaohuohua in late 2014, and spend a grand total of 30.000 yuan or 4740 US dollar to design and build it.
He was helped by his father who has a company making fibre-reinforced plastics (FRB), which is the material where the car is made from. Chen did the molding and modelling by himself. He bough the other parts he needed on the internet.
What happens if I put Pirelli P Zeroes on my daily?
SoCal so no snow and hardly any rain.
Why wouldn't you get one of the numerous high performance summer tires that are better? Pirelli is for brand whores and niggers and consistently scores poorly in comparison tests.
Anyone else pissed off at Ford GT? It has a v6tt rather than their new flat plane crank v8, the price is ridiculous (400k) and only 250 will be made per year.
Both the v6tt and v8 meet le mans standards, but former has more horsepower and probably torque. That's the reasonable argument as to why they would use it, but is it worth the boomer nostalgia and the sound?
It isn't worth the boomer nostalgia and sound, especially since they would have to spend a considerable amount of money getting that flat plane crank v8 up to the same R&D levels as the V6TT that already has proven itself in endurance series for a good while now.
I wish it got the V8, but the V6TT is clearly the more sound choice, and allowed them to put more money into developing other portions of the car. (Like its unibody composition and what not.)
>Anyone else pissed off at Ford GT?
no, not at all. I think its a beautiful car and I hope it wins the lelmans. The car is cool as fuck, its expensive and flashy and ill never own one. I think its a really neat way to show off their 6 cylinder engine technology
Currently at the dealer waiting my financing report.
Does /o/ think this is a good deal?
Could you make a 350 affordable to drive every day with efi and a custom mapping?
Sure, Never rev it above 1200 RPM... If you can't afford to drive it properly, get a smaller engine.
People that drive big engines slowly because they can't afford the gas are pieces of shit.
