Hehe I am in love with her must say. But, had to slap a cat on her to qualify for California smog. But, I know lots of people around here who are just waiting for the DMV to dry up and go away.

Yeah, I like trucks, seen some good ones in this thread.

Before her I had a 1993 Nissan Sentra, damn best little car I ever owned, bullet proof, cheap parts.

Also I like the 1980s era 4cylider Cavaliers too.

Re: The Car/truck you are driving now thread!!
2012 Mazda 5

never been a mini van type (got rid of my '12 silverado 4dr for it) but needed more room for growing family, and a solution to higher gas prices. i was burning up $100/week with my truck and i only worked 9 miles from home (Baltimore traffic)

but this little 4 banger sips gas,and the wife chose it because it "smiles" at you from the front, kinda funny. And it seats 7. My truck was a pain with my sons and football practices/games. never fit more than 2 kids+equipment in it with 2 adults. I can jam 4 kids 2 adults and all the equipment bags in this little Mazda no prob...

The first step is to establish that something is possible; then probability will occur.


It's easy to stand in the crowd but it takes courage to stand alone

Do i look really like a guy with a plan? you know what i am? I'm a dog chasing cars. I wouldn't know what to do with one if i ever caught it. You know, I.. I just do things. The mobs have plans. The cops have plans. They're Schemers. Schemer's trying to control their little worlds.

Sorry youngin, but I was there , Crusing in 1977, 78, 79 on one of the countries best cruising strips, Forest Lane in Dallas..Hot Rod Magazine rated it the second-best illegal drag strip in the country, behind California’s Sunset Strip The last year for the 6.6 liter Firebird Trans Am or Formula, was 1979, and not that many were built. I purchased a new 1979 Firebird Formula, but they were out of the 6.6 liter, or 400 c.i. The 400 was the Pontiac engine, the 403 was the Olds engine. I got the 301..all they had..good car though..My first car was a 1973 Pontiac Grand Prix, with a 455 c.i. and Turbo 400 tranny. Best looking of the Firebirds was the 1970 - 1973. 1977-1978 was good looking too. 1981 was the last of that body style.
