Carwhore Thread

Okay, so yeah. It's been a while since we had one of these and since we have a camwhore thread, why not a carwhore one?

Mostly this is here because I just got a new car and want to show it off.

Just got it: 2001 Ford Focus LX. Traded my old 94 Dodge Dakota in for her. I'm currently entertaining custom license plate ideas. This is the first compact car I've ever owned (because I was always too fat to own one). It's basically everything I was looking for in a new/used car, it's even my favorite color. Sorry it's so dirty, I was at the lake yesterday and the roads were a little dusty due to lack of rain (which isn't a problem today, as you can see).

So... show us your ride. And help me pick out a license plate. 6 letter maximum.

    GTIs and GLi are nice, but other then that, jettas and golfs are underwhelming. Good cars for students and stuff, except the electrical breaks down a lot.

    They're comfy though.

    Lease I'm sharing with my roommate's gf, so it's hells of cheap since I don't drive it much I only pay around $70 on the payment each month 8-)

    And it was a local VW dealship's sale thing for current VW owners to get a chunk of the payment knocked off (roommate has a 07' Passat, white manual.)

    It's a question of lower torque. Get better tires.

    If its on, and you gun it, it brakes. You'll only spin the tires for a fraction of a second, and if its on, that fraction of a second is enough to brake the car for 3 seconds or so meaning you putter around while the guy next to you vrooms off.

    1999 Oldsmobile Alero GL Sedan

    12NEW_CAR_01-med.JPG
    12NEW_CAR_02-med.JPG

    Only options missing are leather seats and a sunroof. Has the 3.4L V6, which provides a lot more power than my previous car. Actually not 12 hours after rolling this car off the lot, I already had a photo radar ticket for doing 102KM/h in an 80KM/h zone. The engine is governed at an unfortunate 170KM/h. One of these days that will be corrected.

    Got myself a dark grey 2007 Nissan Altima with the 3.5L V6 engine. I really wish I didn't get leather seats though, because those things get so freaking hot during the summer, and I'm a sweaty pig. Pics coming, if I feel like moving my car out of the parking spot.
