What do you Really Drive??
#1 Submitted: Mon, 20/06/2011 - 23:27

So, here is the question! What do you have in your garage?(Your real one, not your pitiful virtual garage)

Do you have a big honkin SUV?

Do you have a silly little compact crappy economy car?

Do you have a sleek Tuner?

Do you have a soccer-mom mini-van?

Do you have a beautiful fast hunk of American classic Iron?

Do you have a Mundane-Mobile? (AKA Ford Probe, Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, ect.....)

I myself have a 1978 Chevy El Camino. Black with red int. With the stock 305/5.0 ltr I put out roughly around 150 whoppin horespower and have 1/4 mile time of about 20.6 seconds. I can beat almost any VW Bus or Beetle around! I really need a bigger engine....

Post pics if you can! I can't because my dumb@ass computer crashes when you attempt to upload. Will have to fix that sometime.

Live Long and Prosper!
Die and Be Poor!

It will all be over soon......

My beloved 1.8L '99 Ford Focus Estate.

"I like my cars like I like my women."
"What? Fast? Expensive?"
"With a massive arse."

A mighty 113bhp (haha) new (12 years go), although I have no idea what it has now. I had it up to 127mph on the (completely empty, in perfect conditions) M6 toll-road last year.

^^^^
Gotta love the Funk Wagon!

But 127 mph is pretty dang good for that car, its almost as fast as a police cruiser (They limited to 130)
Put a turbo on that baby and you will have a great sleeper car.

My car/truck is all bark and very little bite. Infact, it can just barely outrun a Toyota Prius, which is rather sad actually.

It will all be over soon......

I think the conditions may have been in my favour. It was downhill, and that particular road is utterly glass-smooth, it's the most amazing surface I've ever driven on. You'll find yourself doing 100mph when it only feels like 70.

I wouldn't try it now, it was something I needed to get out of my system soon after I bought the car (plus it'd probably fall to peices if I tried it now...)

This is in my garage atm.. (older picture with the 1.2)

Swapped the engine, from a 1.2s to 2.0E (fuel injected engine from either a Opel Rekord or B manta dunno)
should have 110hp @ 780kg

It was pretty much done last year but I blew some pieces of the tranny.. (which ment I had to take out the engine tranny, and front axle once again and now it stands in pieces waiting to get done..)

This one I fucked up.

This one...

I fucked up aswell..

Aswell as I fucked up this one...

Ok ok, the last one was really rotten, used for parts only..

Always count on somebody to rain on the parade.

Synetearis, that is a very groovy little hatchback you got there! You and I should have a race since both our cars have almost no HP!You would win though, cause your car is lighter. to make up for my car;s heaviness. afterwards we will have a demo derby to to see who's is stronger! Amen Brother! Amen!
