If you can't steer a Mini without power steering then you are a girlyman! I carry loose change that weighs more ;-)

four wheel steering, like a saab. but i agree with you, but the hard part gotta be difference in steering and handling with those cars. how will they integrate that into the game.

Ofcourse i fully trust in Nobb and his management skills, however their is a "how do they do it" thought.

I just get bored! Been driving for 8 years, only put one car through an MOT :P

Getting bored of the Subaru now but not sure if thats down to the very poor mpg or if I'm really in the mood for a new car to tinker with.

In my opinion manual gearboxes give far more control. I could never get used to not having a clutch when I drove an automatic.

i agree to that, Trent, many times it has happened that i thought i had a clutch and powerbreaked the car into a halt (Happened so far in half a week, 5 times, luckily no cars behind me :D), making my friends dislike me very much, and also much harder to powerslide with automatic gearbox.

rule of thumb: if you can start a manual, you hate automatics.

I dont rember that.. Typing seemed really hard yesterday, Now im cleane >.>

So ya, Hi, would have been so much easyer to just say, 'Shame HYLK, but I really do like autos more' Much mroe fun to use the pesent coment and make things explode.. tho it dident explode as much as I thought?

Ah well, Ill take a large 8 cylinder luxury car over a stick pulling 4 banger any day,

Unless its a Schporten mobilen, Id have a C63 with paddles, there fun, tho I dont know if that classes as manual.. there usually advertised as auto.. since they are mostly.. hm,

allso back on topic of cars.

I find it fucking funny that Toxic's car is actully badass.. But still the same as this.

Haven't got an actual car to drive on public roads with as of yet.

But when all the people have gone, and I have been left in solitude; I drive this battered old junker on my private terrain.

Barreling across dirt roads, screeching around my asphalt field and smashing walls of cardboard boxes, reenacting beloved 70's car chase scenes.

My Batmobile, my Vanishing Point Challenger, my Bullit Mustang, my Jackass Shopping Cart, my Eagle!

(Including horrible paintjob, sprayed on by me and my cousin in a hasty work of gut-churning art)


Oh yeah! This old Volkswagen runs as smooth as a spiny lizard covered in spikes and sandpaper! I'm lovin' it!

Thank you! I'm planning on replacing it with an actual metal-crafted one. Just for show.

Same goes for some more Mad-Max styled accessories, awesome exhaust, maybe some side-pipes etc. Give it that 'Wasteland' look. ;)

Post by drunkenmastamanne666 »

it's a shitty car really. But i gotta do something cool out of it (not yet, looks still like some stanceworks 18 year old first car)





head gasket blowed up and had to change it.


And some rims comin to it from another fiat, just got to widen them up and get some shitty nangangs for next summer.


It's a Fiat Tipo 1,6 DGT (8-valve piece of a shit whit sohc and carburetor... need that 2,0 fiat twin-cam with fuel injetion and 4X¤ transmission from tempra, but it's comin baby.) But yeah, digital dashboard, i like that, and 3 big guys can drink in the backseat better than any modern car without any need for more space, very good passenger space in this car.



This is my project car, still waiting for quattros transmission for 4x4 and some metal work to do with rust AND A MOFUCKIN TURBO + SLAMMING + RIMS... just to do some fun drift shiet


Audi 80 b2 1981 with 1998 1,9 diesel motor with only 50,000 kilometres (from chrashed skoda felicia, the body has over 600,000 kilometres over it, but i have allready changed the brakes and every little things you need to do with car like this, doors still open and close like a strong-box :D), so this is my little diamond waiting just when I have the time to put it on the road again.

And just for laughs, my first car, SUZUKI ALTO with the allmighty 0,8 3-cylinder motor (photo is from 2008 so I think more rust is there(first, other ones are from age of dinosaurs)






Even after everything, i gotta say, there's a little fixation in me and i some day gotta buy mk1 suzuki alto with that 0,8 engine and put a turbo or something in that and drive that like screwie lewie (not kill anyone dont worry) and tune it to look cool hah.
