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

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

LOL if you get caught driving without a license here you can expect 6 months in jail as a compulsory minimum.

none yet... but my dad drives a porche carrera (srry bout SP)


Vader's wife was very pregnant when she died 19 years ago. All of a sudden a 19 year old who is very strong in the force and has a distinct resembalance to him in his younger days rolls in from Vader's home planet with his old Master Obi-Wan (Who was the ONLY other person preset at the time his wife died. And to boot, the kid's last name is Skywalker.

So in answer to your question, he knew Luke was his son because his name is Darth Vader, and not Darth Retard.

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

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

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)

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

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


Got Honourz? Great.. I hope you choke on it!

I r0xx0r all j00 nooberz that mess with me. You nooberz suXor out of my way or I eat j00....

You forgot to mention: Drugs available to all at your nearest "coffee shop"!

....oh well, in Finland we have to pay 3 x as much for liquor 'cause otherwise we'd drink ourselves to death...at least that's what the goverment thinks.

Hmmm...any ideas on how to make pics actually SHOW UP?

Sometimes they do, somethimes they don't. I'm often forced to check the path ('properties' of the non-visible pic) to see what people are trying to post.

So is there a way that works 100% of the time or is it just luck?

You've got a '99, and you've managed to drive it almost 100,000 miles in 3 years? Do you drive for a living or something?

well, I did not put the miles on it, it used to be my dads car. it would go on a (either) 300 miles each way/800 miles each way trip every 2nd week.



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

I dont complain, the other day, I was sloppy on the chutch, and the critter responded by crirping the tires on me.... not bad for a 115hp engine with 95000 miles on the clock, eh?

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.
