I think I want a crown vic as a DD/winter beater
I know they have V8s but how are they on gas?
and what should I look out for on these also is it legal to put "NOT A COP" on both sides of the car.
I get about 16-18 daily. I don't hypermile like a communist. On road trips I get 22mpg with no cruise control. 3.27 open diff.
>Me: All version of Mazda Miata
Same reason why this dog shit was made.
It's time once again for a new episode of canadas worst driver.
stream will start close to 10 EST and the link will be posted in the thread.
Hey /o/, I've been lurking for about 8 years as anon (since college). I come and go, don't spend a TON of time on here. Figured I would see if anyone had any questions. I co-own Houston Z Auto. My partner is the mechanical brains and I am the business side (with some mechanical knowledge). Feel free to ask me anything about starting a performance shop. We currently specialize in all Nissan/Infiniti, but work on lifted trucks, normal cars, porsche, BMW, pretty much whatever. We also have built many high hp cars. We have a race car that is about 830whp on baby tune and...

BMW General thread
Make BMW great again edition
Haven't seen one of these in a long time so post your BMW etc. Don't remember the exact copy pasta for BMW General but here ya go
>>That looks like a clusterfuck.
it's not, you just lack common sense. you drive past your intersection, make a u-turn through the turnaround, and then turn right. traffic is never held up because it only ever waits to stop and go--there are no left turn lights to halt traffic.
you cannot have a roundabout at every single intersection, but you can have a divider and as many michigan lefts as you want on major roads.
these are typically 2-3 lane roads on either...

im looking for a fuck around car for 1500 dollars or less. im in California
i can get pic related for $900 but is there something i can spend some more on something thats better?
Do bright red cars look better with a black interior or a beige interior?
I want to get an early 70s muscle car that isn't gonna burn a hole through my wallet. Pic related is what I was thinking. Recommend me some classic muscle cars, /o/.
Mopar : A-Body
SB or BB
Is it normal to dislike modern cars and like cheap pieces of shit more than anything else?
Based only on outward appearance, what's the most beautiful car ever manufactured in your opinion?
Mine: 1957 DeSoto Adventurer
Your teenage daughter/son is asking you to buy her/him a car.
You as a responsible dad, what would you buy them?
>even "luxury" brands still putting halogen headlamps on $40K+ cars
>$1K-2K to get anything better
>almost every single halogen system given the worst possible rating for safety on 2016 cars with halogens equipped
>even many xenon systems given 5/10 ratings on safety, visibility, etc
>when asked for comment, car manufacturers (such as BMW, Ford, etc) merely said "Safety continues to be our highest priority when designing our vehicles."
Why is this shit acceptable? Do people even know what it's like to drive an adaptive LED equipped car? Have we just gotten used to driving by candle-light that we don't care? Many people, when asked about the poor ratings the IIHS gave their cars, said they didn't care, even though they frequently cannot see beyond 30ft of their bumper.
>which would increase car prices if they were standard
Marginally. Some of the cars with the best ratings were among the cheapest. Luxury brands like Acura, BMW, Audi, Benz have insane markup simply because the design is "new". Every Japanese automaker has shitty option control. You can't get LEDs on a DX Civic, you absolutely have to get the Touring, even if you don't car about that shit or want to spend 30K on a civic.
Ah.. feels good to be a rich fag in america. U mirin my new dd? My dick IS small btw. ;^]
>someone out there posted this and thought it's funny
What did they do to Cars?
>Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician, Cruz Ramirez, with her own plan to win, plus inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn’t through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage!
What do you think about the Corvette GS?
Should I as a first car? It's so fucking sexy /o/, hold me.
Are all bmws really that hard to maintain and shit?
I wont drive it daily and I got a first cousin who's a mechanic that can help me fix it and shit for free.
>"first cousin who's a mechanic that can help me fix it and shit for free."
Please don't do this to them.
Every slightly-mechanical minded car enthusiasts' worst nightmare is having their family members come to them for ever little car problem they have.
ESPECIALLY when wanting them to work on it for free since "they are family".
At least buy him a case of beer or something.
hes the one who offered actually
we were talking about what car I should get as a first one
he was like mercedes bmw or volswagen
I was like those are a bitch to maintain or so i heard on the internet and he said he'd help
Let's talk about the Cruze LT
>great front and look
>amazing money for value
>good car for it's size
Why is the car not talked about on here? Give me it's negatives
what exactly is an original mile?
An you even call yourself an enthusiasts if you don't even work on your own cars? A lot of you fags are suspect, I'm pretty sure half this board hasn't even done an oil change themselves, let alone own a vehicle.
What's stops a car from being push started without the key? How does an immobiliser stop the engine firing up? Why can't I punch the window through, let the handbrake off and push start it?
A bunch of russian guys run a YT channel in which they go to spots known for drivers being assholes in traffic, and they ask them to behave or they get a sticker (that probably says that they're douchebags).
It's pretty funny and they usually have kickboxers on their team to deal with the occasional hot head. Check it out if you want some satisfaction.
I always enjoy these videos while I eat breakfast. The toppest of keks to be had. Then I drive to work and enjoy my private parking, because I don't live in a failed communist state.
Hey /o, so I've got this old car for a restoration project, and someone at some point saw fit to butcher some of its wiring. Does /o know where I can get some general electrical automotive parts? (e.g., wire, solder, other stuff to fix this mess)
Radioshack, local electronics supply shop, frys electronics etc etc
Harbor freight will also have what you need and they also sell my fav type of heat shrink "marine" heat shrink.
It has some heat activated glue in it that seals the wire so it can't corrode and it's twice as thick as normal heat shrink.
So, I just thought of this...
There's should be an Initial D parody movie, where the whole movie just shows random people doing everyday driving, but act overly dramatic about everything that happens.
For example, one guy gets overtaken on the highway so he spends the next 5 minutes explaining how the other driver pressed on the accelerator a little more, or a passenger goes through a monologue about how the driver is able to drive while looking down on his phone, texting, and they get into a wreck.
bless me o, for i while be going on a late night drive in a bit, bless all o drivers
Could your car outrun a local cop car on the twisties?
>starts off with the cop on your ass
>has no support
>5km stretch of narrow mountain roads with sharp turns, inclines, declines, short sharp straights, etc.
Pic related, my legacy GT. I'd say maybe, because pigfat.
1996 Miata with brand spanking new rubber. Local law enforcement drive Tahoes and Chargers. I would take my chances with a Tahoe, not sure about the Charger though. If he got my plate to begin with, it'd be over before it started anyway.
Why are there so many retards that try to sell tires but don't include the tire tread or a pic with the tread gauge? yet they still say "very good" and you show up and they're done.
ITT: SHIT THAT SELLERS DO THAT ANGERS YOU
>just put new tires on
>like last year
>the tread is obviously heavily worn
>the brakes squeak, they need replacing
>nah that sounds normal
>the rotors look worn they need replacing
>nah they look fine
"For sale: A honda car." I can't stand people who don't do a lick of research. Like, I get it. Not everyone is a gearhead. But for the love of god, just google your car and try and find out some of the basic comparison prices, specs and options specific to your vehicle before posting an ad.
