Tell me about your car (or motorbike or other motor vehicles)


#1

What are you nerds driving? Or riding or flying or sailing or whatever verb cool kids do these days.

Personally I’ve got a 1984 Subaru hatchback, and it is the very definition of “slow car fast” with about 75-80 horse on a good day

but gosh it’s cute, though

I also have a rat-rodded Honda C100 Super Cub I’m working on but that’s still a few good sessions away from being a functional bike - needs electricals and some other stuff slapped on before I’m ready to get many photos


#2

I can’t afford newer cars so I’m always driving something twenty years old, haha. :stuck_out_tongue: Right now, it’s a 1999 Mazda Protege. Gets the job done.


#3

I drive a Toyota Corolla. A base model!

I also have a 2005 Kawasaki Ninja 636. But it’s non-operational. After my MBA is done, I’ll fix it up.


#4

I drive a 2005 tan Prius. Boy it doesn’t feel good to drive, but I like getting 400 miles out of $20 of gas quite a bit.

I used to drive a 2007 Kawasaki Ninja but almost got into too many accidents to keep riding it in Oregon. Only worth driving three months of the year too :stuck_out_tongue:


#5

Got a Subaru Forester.

No bike right now but my last one was a Suzuki SV650.


#6

I’ve got a Daihatsu Copen here in Japan…I love the damn thing but it’s getting pretty old:

#7

Oh gosh, I’m so envious. Small (and/or Kei) cars are definitely my thing; I’d love to import a Suzuki Cappuccino some day.

I have a Scion FR-S myself.


#8

what’s up with the 636? once you get it running again it should go for a good while, given it’s a Japanese four-banger, so if it’s something as simple as a carb clean or some electrical gremlin, probably worth getting done


#9

Did a track day and let let it sit unused for a while. After a track day you’re supposed to flush your brake fluid. I didn’t because I got really busy. So now I need to replace my front and rear master cylinders.

Of and the battery and an oil change.


#10

ah, yeah I can see how that’d add up real quick D; at least it sounds like you’ve got a good game plan for whichever rainy day


#11

My 2014 m235i.

I’m gonna need to replace the brake pads and tyres in the next couple of months, which ain’t gonna be cheap. I spend almost as much a month on this per month as I do on rent. Every bit of common sense I have tells me to get something cheaper.

But god damn, when I put my foot down all that common sense goes away, along with all the other problems in the world. This car is my self care. I love it.

2018, Subaru Crosstrek. Affectionately called, “The Pumpkin”! Picked her up earlier this year after my 99 Civic started piling on repairs, to a point where I just figured a new ride would be better to put money into. And she does me beautiful for the lifestyle I try to live~


#13

My 2006 330i Sport. Its a lovely vehicle.

I put an MTech front bumper, yellow fogs, LUX angel eyes and yellow hi/lo bulbs. Lets me run yellow fogs and DRLs at the same time for that euro look. I also got the wood trim wrapped w/ 3M brushed aluminum vinyl. I love the way it looks and drives. It has about 120k on the odo and it still drives and handles better than most cars around me. Modern 4-door BMWs are big, bloated and slow. My N52 has 255hp from the factory and I wouldnt even think about buying a new BMW today unless it has an ///M badge.


#14

Ford C-Max Energi

Smooth ride, roomy, 188hp and averaging about 120mpg

Garage kept and plugged in every night. That photo was from when we first bought it.


#15

Yo. This car is doooooooope.


#16

I’m not big into cars. Got my Fiat Punto when I got the license, never changed it even if I’m thinking about doing it eight years later. If it goes, I’m OK with it, I don’t need much else.
I’m in love though with my bike. It’s a Kawasaki Z900, total black, and I already almost killed myself on it even if I own it since March of this year. Still love it though.


#17

I ride a bike too. Husqvarna Nuda 900, such a fun bike to ride, the 900 twin has so much torque.


#18

it’s a bummer the Nuda is probably never gonna see the light of day in the US market - ah well, at least we have some similar Italian bikes like the Aprilia Dorsoduro and Ducati Hypermotard


#19

Yeah it’s a shame it was such a short lived model. They’re pretty rare here in Australia. I can’t see KTM bringing a Nuda model back when they have the Dukes.


#20

friend of mine’s got the 690 Duke and that’s already a lot of bike - sounds like the 790 parallel twin coming down the pipeline is gonna be double crazy
