Your Car

Postby MonteLDS on Mon Jan 19, 2004 2:26 pm

it is like that A/S/L thing when you were a kid and the parents had just got internet.. or if you are that parent who kids did the A/S/L thing..

Okay the year, the make and mileage. any small extra info u want to add about it (eg. new or used; turbo or stock; junk or awesome)

So we all know i have my 1996 Mazda Miata, got it used at 89k miles for 6k out the door *(taxes all) and currently i have 103,090 miles on it. Thing is a champ! runs great. going finally put my Sony CDX-MP40 in it today. Jennifer still hasn't installed hers :roll: and that was because she was going sell her car.. but that didn't seem to happen yet.. oh well i hope someday she will enjoy it

holy cow!!! i just did an avg to find out how many miles i drive a day! And it says i drive an avg of 100+ miles a day!

I have a Hyundai Accent 1.3i (don't laugh), made July 2001 and only 17000 on the clock so far. Needless to say it's still faultless.

In our household we also have a 1994 Nissan Sunny (Pulsar) 1.6SLXi with 67000, and a 1994 Peugeot 106 1.4 Diesel with 65000. The Nissan is faultless, the Peugeot is a complete bag of nails, the brakes failed on it recently for example :(

Why have I got a Hyundai? It's cheap, reliable, with low insurance, tax and petrol costs. And it's one of the few smaller cars that fits my 6'2" frame ;)

I only own 1 car.

2003 Mazda Protege5
Midnight Blue color
2.0 with lot's of torque but crappy HP.
5 speed + A/C are the only options.
Got about 16500 km on it. Will do next oil change at 18000km.

Here's a pic of it with a winter wheel/tire pkg.

Boone has a Protege5 as well. I don't remember what color it is. My next car is going to be the new Mazda 3 (4 door).

2000 Toyota Camry V6 LE

Going to keep it bone stock. Not worth fixing up a Camry.
Thank God its not a Honda, or else I'd be broke fixing it up.

Well I lost my 96 Corvette recently due to bankruptcy thus leaving me with my hooptie SPL competition car. It is an 86 Caddy Deville with 320,000 miles yes thats right. I paid 800 for the car and about 6,000 for the stereo thats in it :D :D 8) I have gotten it to 160 db's so far. You dont want a new car for doing these mods to. I had to gut the back seat out with a saw and cutting torch to fit the 15 cubic foot box in it. It has a 250 amp alternator and 3 batteries. Runs good I think. If it doesnt I sure dont hear it :) She does have an alarm and remote start LOL May look like hell but hey its fun to ride in.
Oh yeah gallons of sound deadener and locktite :)

69 Dodge Dart that I've had since 79. It has 170k on the original engine. the rest of the drivetrain has been slowly upgraded to 340 specs with front and rear sway bars and a Sure Grip (posi) rear, 318 engine.
It's not as nice as when I got it with 63k but it's still pretty solid and I drive it every day. I have rebuilt the front suspension also so it drives better then new with the other upgrades. Next up Big Bolt disk brakes and rear drums so it'll stop ;)
I do have a decent stereo in it, 2 12's a bunch of amps and a 10 disk changer though I almost never use it just driving to work and back, it does sound nice though.
