As for actual racing with it, never bothered, most people won't even dare, and my car is already enough of a Police magnet, all they really need is one good reason:D My Bonneville is usually what I "race" in. People see my Camaro, and know they can't touch me, but they see my Bonneville, and think they'll take me in a race, heh heh heh. Besides, it's so much more fun(not to mention embarrassing:D) smokin' Mustangs in my Bonneville than in my Camaro.

Oh, and here's a picture of what my Camaro looks like. It's a picture of a model, but it looks identical, and I mean identical to my car, so that's why I picked it. 67' Camaro Convertible (http://www.ttowndiecast.com/ed/201a.jpg)

P.S. Boba Fife : I love Maxima's and intend on buying one someday, they're great cars. My dad had an old one, an 89 Maxima, and it was a blast to drive. Quite peppy, and rather good control, better than I had expected. Learned to drive in it actually, maybe that's why I love Maxima's so much:)

5 seconds in the 1/4 mile wtf? ahhahahahahhaha
r u sure ur not talkin bout 1/8 mile
cuz i doubt ur crx can do 9s w/o nos in the 1/4 mile unless u have 600+ hp in ur 4 banger.
Top Fuel Cars run 5.8 seconds at the fastest.

i have Spoon engines in both those stock from Spoon himself start at bout a good 350-400 HP dependin on how much you want to cough up. plus i have bout 10k on top of the engines, and the engines cost me 40k each. Spoons aint cheap. but yeah i seriously want to try to get to 5 flat i seriously doubt it tho. but hey one can dream.

Jah Warrior
10-17-2002, 08:09 PM
Well a couple of things:-

spending 40k on an engine especially for a honda is disgraceful. Hondas are good cars but $40k?!?! that would buy a ferrari over here, which surprisingly would be 10 times more reliable than a car that revs to 10k.

American cars.....:snear: :barf: :disaprove :rofl:

I dont care what you say they are ugly, like i say there are one or two exceptions like the 1st edition corvette, the dukes of hazzard car although its less beautiful than it simply cool. They are bad for the environment, which is reason enough to scrap the lot. Handling? what handling they wallow around like they are on a waterbed.

European and Japanese cars:-:cool: :cool::cool:

Economical nice to look at, better handling lighter hence faster.
For the record its possible to get a car over here that can do 0-60 in 4-5 seconds that has a 1.6 litre engine. a so-called muscle car needs an engine 3-4 times the size to even come close.


As far as styling is concerned name a famous american coachwork builder..... well go on then.... ah you can't!!!

Want a few Euro ones?
Zagato, Bertone, Pinin Farina, Giugario, Ghia, etc etc etc...

I think this proves the point LOL

I'm aware that Hondas are froim the land of the rising sun, but the american car comment was aimed at american cars not yours.

showing off in a honda LOL:D thats impossible man.

to show off you need an impressive car

read:- mercedes, BMW, Aston Martin, Ferrari, TVR etc.

do not read:- "front wheel drive cars"

In respone to Jah, I'll post pics of some of my favourite cars, and ones I'd love to have.

Nissan Maxima (http://www.edmunds.com/media/news/column/letterstotheediors/01.dec/02.nissan.maxima.500.jpg) As stated earlier, I really like these cars, and actually intend on buying one in the future.

Pontiac Bonneville SSEi (http://www.automotive-review.com/sseifront.jpg) This is definitely a car I would buy if I had a dirtload of money.

Acura CL type S (http://www.autonerve.com/Car%20Show/2002%20Vancouver%20AutoShow/Acura_CL_TypeS.jpg) With 260 HP and plenty of luxury, this car is definitely high on my list.

Porsche 911 Turbo (http://www.rpi.edu/~jennir/cars/2001porsche911%20Turbo.jpg) Now if I really wanted to go all out, this would be the car I'd get. I've loved 911 Turbo's forever. Heh, even my so called "dream car" is pretty economical and cheap compared to what some people will put. I guess I'm just a practical kinda guy.

I really wish that I could someday own a brand spankin' new Camaro, but *sigh*, that'll never happen. Seeing as after this year, the Camaro/Trans Am will no longer be produced:( *sniffle* Farewell boys, at least you left a great legacy... may you rest in peace :cry6:

I drive two different cars - a '97 Honda Accord LX and a '00 Honda Accord EX-V6. But if I had tons of money I'd buy 2 more cars - a '03 Honda Civic SI and a '03 Acura RSX Type S.
I'm not all that into the European cars - I like them, I respect 'em, and every once and a while I'll drive a '01 BMW 325i, but there's not too many of them I'd want to buy.

My father used to race a '70 HemiCuda and a '70 Dodge Challenger when he drag-raced professionally. As far as I know, I think he still holds the record for the 1/4 mile at the track in Gainesville, FL at 10.49 secs. This is for the "Superstock Class" now. I realize that the funny cars and top fuels can smoke that.

He's a 5-time Nationals Superstock champion. My Uncle Steve owns Rockingham National Dragway in NC too! Lotsa racin' in my family............and I'm an Architect. :eyeraise:

I'm with ya, Reb. I love my 'Max. Wouldn't trade her for nothin'.:D

Who thinks the '64 Chevy Impala is "vile"??? Blasphemous. Beautiful rig. Some can't appreciate true automotive beauty. ;)

I'll stick to my Saturn SL/1 (my wife has the SL/2). Easy on the gas, big trunk... handles great. EXTREMELY low maintenance.

Skins Tip #1: Buy only what you need in a car. Put the money you save into a house (or save for one). The house will hold it's resale value much better.

Somehow.... LeXX managed to handle both ;) Nice crib LeXX!

I've got a relatively old Lotus Esprit, scarlet in colour. It drives well for the age of the thing, and I can race most of my mates with a good outcome for me. Gobbles up the petrol, though, and parts are hard to find nowadays, so I try not to break it too much! I love it, it's a classic and I'm happy.

Still not 18 yet, which is the age requirement for car license in Denmark..... :(

Ha Is it true you can drive a car when you're 15 in the states?

Bubba, you can drive when you're younger than that if you can "demonstrate a hardship" to the state in Texas! I knew several kids that were 14 who could drive because their families needed them to for the ranch to continue to operate.

These were the same guys that got up at the crack of dawn to feed their pigs, etc. before coming to school, though.

I got my license at age 18... I just drove illegally for 3 years :p

I got a Saab 9000 CD 2,3 Turbo and I'm loving it! :)

200hp/350Nm = quite enough power, for me anyways :D

It's got all the accessories imaginable and then some. Stuff like leather interior, automatic air conditioning etc. is quite rare in Finland..which makes me appreciate it even more.

Try getting f.ex. a BMW; they'll probably charge extra if you wish to have a steering wheel and some pedals with it. Greedy bastards! Buy a 50.000 € car and pay an extra 15.000 € just to get the necessary basic accessories (I'm not talking about really cool stuff) :swear:

I once counted the "specials" that my Saab's got and came to the conclusion that it was worth over 20.000 € (!!!), which is much more than I payed for the car. :)

Can't upload pics of it 'cause no-one tells me how/where to. :(

...but it's really, really pretty! :)

I kinda agree about American cars sucking.. never really understood why someone likes 'em so much.

Personally I love Alfa's! The engine sound alone makes bying one worth it :D

I can't really think of bying a new car at the moment.. just bought myself a house and I'm paying it off for the next 30 years or so.. oh well... but IF I was looking for a car, it would probably be something like:

The new Saab 9-5 Aero
Volvo S60 T4 or a S80.
Audi S-something
BMW
Alfa Romeo

his new car, its less then a year old, almost 30000 miles:rolleyes:

I have had three cars since I turned 15, which was the learners permit age at the time (there is a new "step" license that takes a little bit longer to get a full access license now?).

I had a '83 Toyota Celica for a year, but I was involved in an accident when a woman ran a red light and destroyed my car. Then I had a '89 Ford Tempo for a while until I sold it and got a '88 Ford Bronco II which I am still driving. Its not a bad car, just old, but looks fantastic. I am probablly only going to keep it until the end of this school year and get something nice after graduation.
