    also my dream car is an Alfa Romeo 164S, which go for around ten grand, but since it's Italian and an alfa romeo to boot, I have, well neither the money to buy the car, to fix it WHEN something breaks cause it WILL, nor the garage to work on it.


    :(


    Someday.

    164.jpg

    so gorgeous

    I would LOVE to own an Acura NSX, or as previously stated, a Lexus.

    I think the point is you aren't supposed to drive a Bentley or Rolls Royce, you are supposed to be driven in one.

    Yeah, basically.

    You'd get really good at organizing things into tiny spaces though. Somehow people can probably get 22 bags of groceries on their passenger seat.

    A dude on a car forum I go to got himself an Elise. When asked about the luggage capacity he showed a picture of it filled with an amp, a remington shotgun inside a case, 500 shells, and some sneakers.

    Yes. Have you seen an Elise? It's a wonder a person can fit inside.

    I'm just saying, anyone who buys a car that size is probably a pretty silly person and I'm not impressed their tiny car can hold that meager pittance.

    But that new IS is bigger than the old one. I don't understand why companies must forever increase the size of their cars, just squeezing in new, smaller models to cover up the old ones (nissan veras, that new toyota piece of shit). The IS was a great size, just bigger than a civic with a nice engine and four doors.
    are you thinking of the ES, maybe? Cause the new IS is very short and thus has a useless backseat. Like, it's literally useless. Not "ah, you'll cramp up there but it's okay", but most people with legs will NOT fit in there.

    So it grew length and width and has a useless backseat? Awesome?
    Huh, you're right, it IS longer than the old one. Fuck that.

    Old IS's are keeping value well.

    Too well, I wanted to buy one when I was looking for used cars under 10k earlier this year. I looked at a few of their prices and just gave up on them.
    They tune well too. The I6 is pretty much straight out of a Supra, ain't it?

    Wikipedia says no, it's the same family but different model. I don't know enough about them to say what kind of difference there is though.

    Wikipedia is both right and wrong. The Lexus IS300 has a 2jz inline six. The base 94-98 supra had a 2jz inline six. BUT the Supra Twin Turbo (the one that everyone wants) runs a 2jz-GTE, which is the same block with a different intake flange on it (to attach the turbos to) and a different Transmission. Interestingly enough, the IS300's transmission is pulled straight out of a Toyota Tacoma pick up.

    i think one of these would be nice

    1640-03.jpg

    citroen c6
    looks good, and not as common as the other luxury cars out there. i mean, a brand new mercedes might look good but its no ones gonna be very impressed when theyve already seen 17 of them earlier in the day

    and its got all such features and supposed to be real nice

    they compared the suspension on this car with a bmw, and because citroen uses a different suspension system its apparently like floating on a pillow along a lake of silk

    I have owned both Lincolns and Cadillacs in my time, and I can say I far perfered the Lincolns.

    A 90s Towncar should be achievable on your budget. I'd look into it. Excellent car. I drove a '96 for a little under a year and absolutely loved it.

    my idea of a luxury car would be a f-250 diesel with a chip and programmer

    you know, so everybody can bitch at me for wasting resouces and what not.

    and if i ever came across people bitching about something on the side of the street i could turn off my eco and blow big boils of diesel smoke on them

    hahaha it makes me smile

    My 96 was an undercover sherriff car.

    Interceptor 4.6, cop suspension and all that, underneath a luxury interior. Fuckin badass car that was.

    Only problem was that the version of the engine I had had a mis-engineered intake manifold that would randomly split wide open under heavy acceleration. Happened to me on the interstate about 500 miles from home.

    fun weekend. Luckily my warranty covered a good chunk of it.

    As my first car, I got a 2002 Mitsubishi Diamante. Pretty classy for a kid's car. I'm 18 btw and have paid off a good portion of it, only owe another $2,000 and I have had it for 2 months. Cost only $7,000 which was real good and it was kept real clean, as it is now.
