    What kind of car do you drive?

    Please be honest, no use in making up stuff.

    My daily driver is a 2002 Pontiac Sunfire Sedan. On Friday's and weekends I pull out the 2003 Range Rover.

    So, what kind of car(s) do you drive?

    Edit: If someone wants me to post them, just ask

    **Ask

    The owner of the Maccas where I work drives a Supra, a bit newer than that but

    I currently drive a 1989 Suzuki Sierra but a mates girlfriends wants to buy thats (I think) and I also have (work in progress) a 1989 Subaru L Series which I am in the process of putting a lift kit, bigger wheels on and giving it a bit of a power boost with a EA92 turbo engine with AWD dual-range gearbox, but only a 3.7 ratio

    Won't be the quickest car around but it'll be able to hold it's own just nicely

    What sort of engine work have you done to it? and is that 300hp (about 220kw right?) at the flywheel or at the rear wheels? Looks like a nice car, love the front of it

    Well there were various things, the HKS downpipe, as well as removal of the cats, 550cc Lexus injectors, metal head gasket, air-flow sensor, air filter, centre-force clutch, and an HKS turbo timer, and various things here and there (I can't remember it all, lol). Going to be putting the rest of the HKS cat-back exhaust system on this winter, as well as doing some more suspension work, and adding a turbo boost controller.

    I'm not entirely sure on whether it is the flywheel, or the rear wheels, as I was only told horsepower increase by the person who I bought the parts from (Reg Reimer - President SONiC), I guess it depends on what the original was measured at, I'm guessing rear wheels.

    I have a 1980ish Toyota Corona Sedan, and it works.

    Think I'll probably buy an oldish falcon or commodore for my next car. Reliable.

    Would like a 180SX but I'm not exactly rolling in it.

    I don't normally diss other people, but you Americans have got the worst cars round there! They all seem to look the same. Cars in Europe are sleek, and stylish, especially the vintage ones.

    BTW I drive an Astra, nothing fancy, but wait till my next car, I might be getting a vintage MG and doing it up, just need a house with a garage first.

    And yeah, you can keep your cars.

    Agree completely.

    Not driving myself at the moment cos of the ridiculous cost of insurance here (quoted approx 2000/1,412.07/$2,282.69 for one year!). Dream car is an Alfa Romeo 156. Sweet.
