Okay I really want a V8 F-body but I keep hearing about them getting stolen a lot.
Is there any truth to this and if there is, is there any way to prevent it?
Post dual or multi engine car (concepts)
Sadly the turbos aren't real, but the superchargers are!
I am stuck between these two, from a specs perspective the new Ducati wins hands down over the aprilia. However the Aprilia is not only $2000 cheaper but also has a slightly better track record in terms of reliability.
>what would /o/ do?
car related autistic things you do?
>go into car dealers/honda dealers
>demand EG6 or EK9
>just keep talking about it and how id pay a ton of money for one
>keep doing so until closing or i am escorted out
ill get it shipped to usa soon guys
maybe if honda actually gave USA a good honda i would have not be forced to do this
/hg/ is a joke
people always post type r or JDM SI spec times and act like their USDM bullshit is at all comparable
>be tasteful Honda enthusiast
>still ironically do this dumb shit
>point at every Honda on the road when driving
>exclaim "vtec!" out loud to any passengers
99% of the people I drive with are accustomed to it and usually participate, and it's humorous. Once and a while though somebody new comes for a ride and thinks I'm just an autistic Honda retard.
Just bought my daughter her first car. She's two months old, but I figure I'll just park it in the garage until she's old enough.
Anyone else have one of these growing up? I never had one, but always wanted one. Stole the neighbors all the time.
I had an indy car that my dad cut part of the hood out to put a marine battery in so it would run longer
its still sitting down there with a friend fuse and broken pedal, i realliy should throw that away
get her interested in hooning early
she can race against the local 3 year old with his lightning mcqueen and kick his ass with glorious porsche
WE NEED MORE CAR GIRLS IN THE WORLD, IT'S A LONELY FIELD FULL OF AUTISTS AND NAZIS
which are the 10 fastest cars on /o/ around the nuburgerking?
I am looking for a car for under 6k?
Holds 3 people, Under 3500 pounds, can be used for autocross.
For looks I am thinking either something nostalgic or a sleeper
I am willing swap motors, trans, rear end etc.
won't hold 3 people, but has been something in the front of my mind
I am from Europe. My parents are switching to a station wagon BMW around March and they will give me our old Sedan , the Toyota Corolla XLI from year 1997 . They said they will repair everything on it ( we put on a new injection for fuel three days ago on it ) and now everything is fine . What do you suggest me to change in this car. It is a manual petrol. I was thinking about changing the radio and get it a nice touchscreen with bluetooth on it and also change the speakers and the seats ( because I don't like th eoriginal ones ) .Any other ideas ?
I don't know...
...maybe bracing your ass for a massively boring car.
But it will probably never let you down and probably even outlive you (once it passed the 5th hand and becomes an eternal taxi in Africa)
Hi lads, happy holidays!
Need your help /o/ I found a 1989 Jeep Cherokee (pic related) on sale for about $1900 I haven't had a chance to look at it cause of the festivities and such. Owner says it's in great condition so I ask you what should I know about this vehicle? What should I check??
It would be my first jeep btw, thanks a bunch!!
Off-road thread I guess, let me see your vehicles lads.
If i tune my ecoboost mustang will it explode? like, i foolishly bought one but i have never trusted american quality and trying to make it crank out any additional power kind of terrifies me. i feel like it'll blow a hole in the block or something if i try and churn 40 extra ft/lbs of torque out of it.
>i just wanted a decently fast manual FR with air-conditioned seats
Would any of these be worth buying a fixing?
>1998 Mclaren F1
Yeah, that one.
Apparently, there is a subculture of Ferrari rats who adapt parts from Ford to work but I'm sure they know a lot more about cars than you or I, OP.
i work on coachbuilt cars for a living, and occasionally i do work on some ferraris. As a general rule I wouldn't buy anything older than a 360 to work on myself.
also stay away from anything with structural carbon fiber damage.

What is the most reliable car under $3,000, family?
Both cars you should be able to run the hell out of. But there is still that Civic tax where they are a little overpriced. But for $3k, you should still be able to buy a decent Civic.
All I'm saying is you could probably get a nicer Cobalt or Cavalier for the money, which are fairly reliable shitboxes. But I haven's seen them run to 200k miles with no maintenance like the average Corolla.
Hey /o/, merry Christmas! I've noticed starting today, my 2003 Corolla makes a pronounced "hissing" noise when I accelerate, mostly between 2-2.5 RPM and moreso at the start of whatever gear it's on. After it changes to 2nd gear, for example I'll hear it, but after being well into 2nd gear, the noise goes away. Honestly not sure if it's some metal-on-metal sound, or the intake manifold. Anyone have an idea what it may be?
At the highest rev before a gear change, the dash and car itself do vibrate quite a bit. Not so much like a horribly off balance tire, but a short buzz.
Thanks for the link, it similarly describes the noise I've had, and hoping it's just that small part rather than something major. The oil can also be a factor too, I have no idea how long it's been on the dealer lot, and I have no idea if they used the proper %w-30 oil or 0-30 since...

I'm 25 and never drove a car in my life.
Is it easy to learn to drive? My guess would be yes since millions of people drive.
Driving an automatic is laughable easy.
Getting the license is also laughable if you live in the states.
It is tedious AND expensive if you live in Yurop and you have to REALLY learn all those game rules, otherwise you will not pass the test.
