What are some good drift cars I can pick up used under 20k?
do you get to keep the big bows?
seems fucking stupid
What are the advantages and disadvantages of a diesel engine? I heard you can use corn oil or something
Cheaper fuel costs
Great low rpm power delivery
new diesel: higher maintenance costs (DEF, DPF, SCR etc)
old diesel: smokey and smell
Medium age diesel: practically perfect in every way
Any advice for getting cheap car insurance? I'm over 25, been a named driver for over 3 years on my moms car with no claims and just bought my first car with a fairly low band. I'm still getting raped on prices, even on comparison sites. Also, the cheapest quotes are from companies with horrendous reviews and terms etc.
I accept my first year or 2 is going to be pricey and just hope I can build up some No Claims. But is there any way to reduce the fucking cost?
How do you even do a commute?
i just cant make myself do it. every day i race myself to work.
Fucking this. My commute can double in time by catching 3 lights. I live next to 2 fucking retirement homes and the old fucks just have to come out to get breakfast during morning rush hour. They just sit at green lights, drive 10 under at best, and cut people off constantly. 75% of my drive had been under construction for 2 years too and it's the only way to get to the other side of town. The city planner needs to be beaten with a pipe.
>The city planner needs to be beaten with a pipe.
I want to find out who the guy responsible for all the traffic lights and road network planning type stuff is in my town.
I'd phone him up at the office everyday and call him a cunt.
I could get a burner phone every month or few weeks.
>Fondly remembered by enthusiasts as one of America’s most forward-thinking automakers, Cord is unexpectedly coming back to life after spending nearly 80 years in the history books.
>Based in Indiana, Cord built cars from 1929 to 1932 and from 1936 to 1937. One of its best-known models is the front-wheel drive 812 (pictured), which was the first series-produced car with retractable headlights and the first car to come standard with a radio. At its launch, the 812 was praised for its radical coffin nose design.
>...the revival is made possible by the Low Volume Motor Vehicle Manufacturers Act that Congress passed about a year ago. The bill exempts cars built by low-volume manufacturers from federal regulations, therefore allowing small companies to offer complete, turnkey vehicles if the engine used comes from a fully compliant vehicle. It’s the same law that allowed a Texas-based company to bring back the DeLorean.
it says they first have to strike a deal with an existing automaker, probably for the engine and distribution.
Depends what they want to do. the original car had like, a 4.7 liter V8. so if they want to keep that going, then maybe ford? thought this seems more like something Chevy would mess with
How come no one on /o/ gets beading as good as me?

Since my car sounds like a corolla stock I was thinking about muffler delet'ing it. Are there any benefits to that? Or just the sound. pic related
There's literally no downside to deleting it. The MPG's will go up by about 30%, no more annoying condensation in the tail pipe and my favorite, everyone will love the sound of your 4 cylinders
Happy Thanksgiving Br/o/s
Okay here's my dilemma
A cutie girl I have been after for 2 years just last week we started hitting it off real swell
Today I wake up to a text says:
Hey anon would love to have you next to me at TG dinner tonight:
I live in Vegas and she lives in San Diego and I only have my project car (2001 mustang bullit) that overheats in traffic
Best looking race car ever?
Saw it the other day at work, excuse the potato pic
Will this Mazda finally compete?
>not even the best looking mazda racecar
I'm a little bummed that they went with a I4 instead of doritos.
There's a company selling K30s for about €15k.
Is this a good deal for a restored 6.4l 180hp 3speed automatic truck from the 80s?
They're that price if you're in a euroland I can understand.
If you have that kind of dosh, look into just importing a fully restored one out of the states, seriously. The 73-87 squares of any variety, vary around $1500-4000 tops for running/driving condition and varying levels of rust/rust-free-ness.
How many kilometres is too much for a stock turbo RB25
I found an r33 gtst with 250,000 at a ridiculously low price that leaves me room for a manual swap (hasnt been bouncing off redline as a drift car at least) and money to replace minor parts, but Id rather not find out most of the engine needs replacing though
I have a friend pretty well versed in them who thinks its fine because its been an auto as long as the test drive goes well and we are going to give it a very good inspection
As you said, if it's auto it shouldn't have been thrashed too bad. Should comp test it before buying though to make sure.
I have to wonder, do you have a prosthetic leg?
Here's my 33 for inspiration :)
How much speed do these have?
I don't want something that will make me late for school.
/o/, what are your thoughts on the 2000 Impreza rs? I'm looking for fun car that I can dd for now and eventually turn into something better later on. I live on the east coast so 4wd is pretty useful
Don't. The EJ25 makes more power than the EJ22 on paper but the smaller 2.2 is actually more fun to drive (better powerband). That and and better mileage and no headgasket problems.
A 2.5RS starts around 5k for a project and a base L model Impreza or even an Outback Sport (also 2.2, just flashier trim) tops out at ~4k for a pristine example.
In shirt you're buying into a bad meme. If you insist go all in and buy a WRX.
Hey guys I need some help with my 79 camaro if you wouldn't mind
I had to go out of town for 7 weeks and it was only started once during this entire period, nowe that I'm back I've noticed that while accelerating and driving normally it doesn't accelerate "smoothly" it kind of sounds like it's ratcheting or vibrating as it accelrates specially at highway speeds but it kind of goes away at high speeds and also the car physically vibrates at idle. It's idling really shitty actually now that I think about it chugging and womp-womp-womp...

I normally do my own work anyways but this is my DD and I can't get a rental or something while I have It taken apart for 2 weeks trying to figure out what it is. I also have excessive blowby so I'm having a problem knock it out quickly rather than me fuck around on it. Unfortunately in the Marines they inspect your vehicles before every major holiday and if it fails your totally fucked and can't drive it off base. So this needshould to get done like right now
>the bumper on the corvette is made of plastic
This in red with silver rally stripes and a V8 with manual tranny. What does /o/ want?
Is Fast & Furious the greatest car movie of all time?
Considering Tokyo Drift was a really shitty movie (completely serious), none of these movies are worth watching aside from sheer entertainment value, but for morons. They are popcorn movies, nothing more.
> available in hatch/sedan
> 2.0 liter boxer engine (152 hp)
> below $20,000
Yea they're "unnecessary" until you almost kill yourself in a wreck. "numb steering" its not a sports car and you haven't driven one to be fair so how do you know what its like? "shitty design" Totally subjective looks fine to me.
he's /our guy/, right?
What do /o/s interiors look like?
Just purchased my first car today. 1995 Lexus ES300 with 90k miles on it for under $5k. Absolutely pristine tan leather interior with everything working and a 9/10 exterior with no rust or dings just a few small scratches.
Is there anything I should be worried about /o/? I love this car so much and I don't want it to turn into a money pit. How is the reliability on these old Lexus? Please just help me guys Idek what I just got myself into :(
>don't want it turn into a money pit :(
well your first mistake was buying a used 90's european car

... get this, still no gf
Fuck this place i wish I lived in Rockland/Orange County or better, SoCal.
>hybrid and non-hybrid petrols
Is the dream still alive?
If I can get the 3.5L a manual and no batteries, I'll be happy. AWD and turbos are optional, though I'd prefer RWD and NA (more for reliability).
I'll wait for the RX-9 to be revealed before I make any decisions though.
What do you guys think about car sex?
>What do you guys think about car sex?
Japan will make their KanColle version of cars once they figure out how to gimmick it up and line up the car companies as sponsors.

Pioneer headunits a best.
Source: anecdotal evidence.
Currently using a Pioneer headunit in my E36 and it's much better than previous Sony headunit, the sound ia much more soft, succulent and deep. Will post model name when I'm home
All those top ten sites are all mainstream audio. If your goal is to get something that sounds decent then nothing is wrong with those. However, if you want something that sounds amazing then look elsewhere. Companies like Focal make some of the best speakers in the world and they don't break the bank. JL and kicker make great subs as well.
Do you have a budget? Are you going to be running the speakers off the deck? If you are going to get a heavy mono d amp you are going to need a HO alternator or a two battery setup.
snap oversteer is a meme right? I understand my own limits, this car isn't going to kill me if I get it as my first car is it?
