Anything applies. Muscle, landbarge, trucks, European, Japanese. If its older than 25 years post about it here.
Hey /o/ I just bought a nissan frontier and I just noticed the tires are rotted. Should I replace them or can I last a week on these tires?
should be okay but that weird inconsistent crack near the bottom right is a bit unsettling. could be an indication of a bigger problem. as long as there are no blisters(bulges that rise above the tread) or intense vibrations you should be fine.
post a picture of the cracking in the sidewall if the cracks are wider than 1 mm I'd replace them.
How much money should I spend on my first DD?
About 2/3 of how much you have saved, minimum $1500 (negotiated down from $2000+) unless you're getting some kind of special deal from a friend or relative.
If you want something truly reliable, double that unless you're getting a 90s Civic, Corolla, Accord or Camry.
How's an 03 Lancer in excellent condition, clean title, 2 owners, 99k Miles on it, beautiful interior, no rust on the bottom, no leaks, passed computer testing, and negotiated down to $1600 from $2300 sound? (We negotiated well because my friend's a dealer and the dude selling it bough the car from auction, so we know exactly how much he bought it for, kek)
Only filthy plebeians hate driving in the snow
>ohhhh it's dangerous
>ohhhh it's so easy to crash
IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO DRIVE IN THE SNOW, YOU ARE A BAD DRIVER, OR YOU WEREN'T TAUGHT PROPERLY.
how'd I do /o/
>buy 2,000$ honda civic
>buy aftermarket intake, filter, plugs, ECU, radiator, exhaust, rims and tires for another 2,000$
>a whopping 25 extra HP.
>still basically a family car
>decent impreza or supra for the same money
Getting a daily driver got about 6k for it.
>22 mpg city
>4 cylinder is fine or v6.
>Feels fast but doesn't have to be fast.
>Automatic preferred because I don't want to learn manual for my daily driver.
>From at least 2005.
What car is this /o/?
Carsforsale had a lot of listings but most had 150k+ miles and I don't want that many miles on it.
I live in north carolina
>his engine still doesn't have pushrods
Pushrods are superior to DOHC. The Automotive press is saying pushrods. Heck, even the Europeans are lauding the supercharged LS9 and LS2.
You cannot argue with that, expecially since the only alternatives are the V8 DOHC mills from Ferrari and Lamborghini that, while generate near-pushrod horsepower, are painfully lacking in torque. Torque, in fact, that rivals V6 family car mills. Racing history and commercial viability is screaming for the pushrod...

What's /o/'s take on FWD Mercs?
Me? Meh, they've got to increase sales on way or the other, and using a generalized platform to produce a "cheap" car that normies will fancy because of
>muh luxury brand
/o/'s opinion? Utter disdain
My opinion is that nowadays too many brands try to serve too many submarkets. The world doesn't need Mercedes compacts, Lamborghini SUVs, Ford supercars or Honda and Toyota pickup trucks just for Americans.
What is the most patrician car you know?
No one who just wants -a- car will pick this car as their car, even when they want a classic car. Anyone who buys this car will buy it specifically because it's this car and no other car, which in turn serves as an automatic validation of their patrician taste.
It's shitty quality but the new Continental has been leaked
>rwd isn't important to a 'luxury' car
>it's got ken block's personal awd system
>it has 400hp at the wheels
>ford owned ____ so it's ok for them to plagiarise.
>lincoln still has prestige in america
>it's gonna surprise people
lies fordfags tell themselves
What is the ugliest car you've seen IRL? Mine is pic related.
