What Do you Drive? Real Life Pictureshow Thread!
« on: 18 April 2008 12:01 PM »
OK, so this is a thread for people to name and shame, or name and show off the cars that they drive!

I'll Start.

I have only been driving for three years, so until recently, i had only owned 1 car in my life, and that was a Vauxhall Astra, on a 1995 Plate. It was green and have a 1398cc Engine on a Manual Transmission. Zero to Sixty in about 18 seconds....Yeah. It was a bit piddley, but, it went from A to B, and it never failed to start - It did 30mpg around town and 40mpg on the highway, plus it was given to me by my dad, so i cant complain.



Just 2 days ago, i bought a Lexus RX300. It is Silver and Has a 2998cc V6 Engine on an Automatic Transmissionj. Zero to Sixty in 6.2 seconds. Yeah Baby! I have always wanted to get a 4 x 4 and this thing is perfect. Best of all - It is not a gas guzzler in any way - 23 mpg around town, 31 mpg on the highway - and thats with standard low octane fuel - I plan to get some performance boosting fluid to go in the gas tank, that will hopefully increase it to about 27/35 - and i'm going to over-infllate the tires slightly to get that up a bit more.

I've had several different cars over the past 12 years, but my car now is definitely my favorite. Plus, the girls seem to LOVE it!



The hot South Carolina summers get a little more bearable when you can put the top down. I love my car :) The real one is packed to the brim with stuff right now (I'm moving over the next week), so here's a picture of one that looks very much like it.

My 1990 Chevy Beretta (my first new car).
Been across the US twice and as you can see has had a make-over.

Unfortunately it only looks fast.  The engine upgrades were going to be done, but then I got married...

And yes, I'm wearing my Boba Fett First Generation outfit... even wore the helmet while driving.  And let me tell you that it is a pain with that antenna; but not as bad as wearing night vision goggles.
Oh yeah, when wearing a fully enclosed helmet while driving, people leave you alone.  No road rage what-so-ever.

It's funny that this topic was just started because I just recently bought a brand new truck.  Up until recently I had been driving around a 1996 Chevy Monte Carlo Z34.  It still runs quite well and I'm selling it to my Uncle for my cousin's use.  So anyway, I bought a new 2008 Chevy Silverado, LTZ, Z71 crew cab.  She's got a 5.3L V8 with the Auto Fuel Mgmt system in it (shuts off 4 cylinders when not needed for fuel eco), OnStar, Navigation system, 8 Bose Speakers + subwoofer, rear DVD entertainment system, independent rear audio, safety package (includes side curtain air bags), etc, etc...I could go on but here's the pic.  Enjoy!
