I'll let Mix-A-Lot answer this one for me:

1996 Corolla. Just bought some air freshener for it, the scent is called "Summer Melons" - nice.

2003 Mitsubishi Lancer ES

I've had it nearly 2 years now, put about 30,000km on it. Last summer I drove from Halifax to Montreal and back without problems(14 hours each way, roughly), and just this weekend I took it to Sydney (4.5 hours each way) also without problems. I've had to drop some money into it for a few things. Boot joint, suspension, exhaust and a leaking gas tank, but I'm very satisfied with it. All my friends who have driven it said they loved it. If I were a rich man, I might even buy a new Lancer, or perhaps a Subaru.

Not my car (yet) but I'm sure my dad will hand it down to me in a few years:

It's not the one in the picture but it's the same year, looks just like it. Ours is red.

Old Mustangs are fucking Heavy Metal.

Daily driver, was part of the Palmyra, PA police department fleet from 1990-1996. I just installed new springs and shocks all around at 236,300.

Here is the before and after stance. Note: the car is about a half inch higher in the front and rear thanks to the new springs and shocks. I drive this thing everyday and I put 23,000 miles on the car in the past 2 years roughly, so I don't drive that much.

I drove a 2001 Intrepid up until about 2 months ago when the water pump (and a whole bunch of other shit) went. I now drive a shiny new Chrysler 200. Wish it looked more like the Intrepid, but I've got two 12" Kickers in the trunk, two amps and four 6x9 speakers that I'd bought when I was driving the Intrepid. Drives real nice, but more importantly, music sounds great. Nice interior, too.

This picture is actually 4 years old. I can tell because the puke on the side is from my friend's bachelor party!

I used to drive through Palmyra daily when I lived in Middletown. But that wasn't until 2006.

I owned this one until recently. 1978 Porsche 911 SC with 38K original miles. The car was incredible in every way, and I got it for a great price, but ultimately I needed something with more room and softer suspension, as I was getting ready to drive halfway across the country.

And I also have a motorcycle, a 2010 Buell Firebolt XB12R. 1200CC V-twin with a wheelbase shorter than a Ninja 250. Hello, fun.

Driving a 1985 Nissan Pulsar and got the constant feeling nobody here (Melbourne) drives something older and dodgier, but hey, it's got four wheels and a decent sound system. And can hold up to 30 liters of fuel :(

Jesus, very nice, Infinitenexus. Sometimes I wish I was more into cars, but I prefer to spend big bucks on computers and instruments, and lots of liquor. That's what happens when you get into sheet metal, raging alcoholism. Hahaha. I just really want Micheal Weston's car, man. Yeah, it's cliché, the whole 1972 Charger thing, but it's a gorgeous machine. Can you tell I watch too much Burn Notice?

1991 Ford Taurus, almost 183,000 kms, runs great. Needs tune up (as well as performance stage 3 chip), new rims (chrome), and a nice stereo (1000+ watts), preferably Alpine, maybe Kenwood. Major upgrades will start in spring 2013...........

:p

^All that money into the wheels and stereo? Forget about the wheels at least, and swap that smog motor for a pre 73 460 big block or at the very least a 351 :)

Sorry for lack of grammar:

I dig your vehicle, bra. I have a soft spot for 80's bimmers for some reason even though I drive a polar opposite vehicle myself.

Nice. My first car was a 1997 Corolla. I'm driving a 2011 Camry now. It's got almost every option, which is great, because I make a lot of road trips. I already have over 40,000 miles on it, and I bought it only 21 months ago. It looks identical to the one in this picture. Not a race car or big pickup truck, but I really love it.

^Scrap that shit and get yourself a '69 Lincoln with suicide doors. You will love it more. 7mpg, but really thick sheet metal, basically a tank in car form.

:lol: I can't afford that shit. I drive 20 miles to work every day, and 20 more miles home (obviously). My band's practice spot is about 15 miles away. I do too much day-to-day driving to have a 7mpg car, not to mention all the long trips I take, and I take a lot. But man...that'd be sweet. I'd love to own one of those.

Yeah I hear you. I myself drive a 14 mpg car, so I'm really sacrificing style for good mpg, that's for sure! My car runs on human flesh though, so it's emissions are not particularly hazardous to the atmosphere.

Just sold 2 sentras that I owned. One was an 05, the other an 06. I sold them because I'm moving to the UK. When I get there I will be driving this:

2011 Vauxhall Astra 1.6. I've never owned such a new car, but it should be nice.

My friend's dad has a car just like that Chevy, in the same color, but I don't think the paint was as "taken care of". His is an 89, it was a police car, and it halls ass!! I'm jealous of you both. :lol:

Dude, ask your friends dad if he'd be willing to sell it, I'm not even joking. I would definitely drive out to pick it up, location does not matter, but I would need high resolution pictures of course. I want to have a fleet of 77-90 Impala/Caprice 9c1's (9c1 is the RPO code for police package)

The paint looks great in the pictures, but it has it's imperfections and there are a few rust areas that I need to take care of. I waxed the car a handful of times in the 2 yeras I owned it, but I haven't had the time to really wash/wax the car on a daily basis like other car enthusiasts. I've taken this car to the car wash several times so it has its share of rock chips and marks from the car wash. However, for a 22 year old daily driver, it's pretty good and I get compliments from people...which is funny because the blue book value for this car is probably $1000.

I drive a 1984 Ford Bronco. It's white and has some pretty big wheels. While I definitely love it's uses, like carrying cement for work and serving as a great ride for all my friends, it can be such a piece of shit sometimes. It gets 12-14 mpg and the CD player tends to scratch all of my CD's. If anything though, it's easy to do maintenance on because it's so big. The really messed up thing about it is the fact that it has over 200K miles on it.

^Nice man, I get similar MPG around town and I've got 240k almost. You have a 351 or a 302? Is it carbed or EFI? As for the CD player, I'd be it's mounted wrong or perhaps its just time for a new head unit. You can get an excellent head unit for less than $100 that will play cd's, mmp3's, and have USB in. I personally have an older head unit that just plays cd's, but it works great and does not scratch any cd's as far as I know. It's key to have the thing secured properly.

This is my baby, a 1987 VW Scirocco II, got it in 2003 for 800 €. But since a few years now i only use it during summer and only on sunny days. I love this car!! Made his 300.000th kilometer this year. My everyday-car is a "boring-as-hell" VW Golf IV. :)

Yes it is, it gets all the love i can give her :lol:
In germany, if your car is 30 years old, it's considered an oldtimer, and this is the goal for my old lady here. Only 4½ years to go...
380.000 km is also something to be proud of... :thumbsup:

Here's a more artsy photo taken 2 years ago in the middle of no where.

I feel that this car looks best from an angle rather than a profile.
