Seeing that the old Car Pic Thread has been archived and that some of us have been getting new wheels recently, including myself  , I thought I'd fire up a new thread to post pics of our pride and joys or pains in asses.



... 04 Mustang GT, just picked her up this past weekend. Its my first convertible, so bring on the summer

Bought it back in February. It's been a great car so far...but it's taken quite a bit to get used to.

Its an aftermarket option, but since I bought it used, it came with the car. Personally, i like it, but thats just me. Besides, theres a lot worse you can do to a Mustang like lambo doors, HID headlights, god awful body kits.

Bought it about a month ago - it's the sport version with the 6-speed manual. Love it so far.

That's what I really wanted when I purchased my Civic. However at the time, the dealer didn't have a whole lot in stock and wasn't really willing to work with me on it. They basically said, "If you don't pay this price, someone else will come along and pay it." Which was pretty much true. Oh well. So I went over to Honda and got a far better deal. I trust you like the Mazda though?

I ran into pretty much the same deal. Literally, I think I got the only manual transmission 3 S within 50 miles. I paid a bit more than I wanted to, but not more than I was prepared to (the 0% APR helped too).

My previous car was a Civic, and while it served me well, I wanted something different, with better handling and some more power.

Quoting JetsGo (Reply 5):

Very much so. Still in the fine-tuning stage of adjusting to the clutch and shifter (and way more powerful engine), but yeah, it's great.

SWEET!   

The 1999-2004 was one of the best looking Mustangs. I wouldn't mind having that in black with silver trim.
My first convertible was a 1987 Chrysler Lebaron convertible.
Beautiful car but very unreliable. I miss the voice alert system, digital dash and trip computer.
Oh and I also miss all the attention from the girls that car would get.  



Here's my car. Same as in the last thread.
1977 Lincoln Town Car.
The wide fixed-glass top is the unique feature about this car. Less than 1500 were ordered with this feature in 1977.
Also these cars are very hard to find in black today.

Wow... reply one. You've really outdone yourself this time   

Still the good ol VW, just rolled past 100k this weekend, only difference is I have the VR6 17" rims on the car now:



And my new toy, 1993 Chevy Caprice Classic. LO5, 5.7L V8 small block, bought off the original owner who kept the car in his garage when not being used, driven less than 8k a year since new. Minus a few small issues car is in fantastic shape. Looking at dropping a bigger smallblock (oxymoron aside) and a beefier transmission.

Im debating weather to take the wood off, but I want to keep the car as stock as I can minus the larger SB if I do it. I laugh that the "wood applique" cost $595 whereas the bigger V8 only cost $250.   

Quoting BMI727 (Reply 17):

It's actually not that bad. A tad floaty, but still fairly responsive for such a big car, I might go for some stiffer springs if I drop in the bigger engine to tighten up the ride a bit. Plus it has the auto leveling shocks, that helps a lot.

Nice pic but that is a great car. We just bought a 2010 Honda Pilot but during the whole car buying process, I lamented to my wife how much roomier those cars were and such a great ride too.

But I do love our new Pilot.

Gotta ask, why buy that? Is going to be used for...business? Or just your bag?


Kudos on the acquisition!

Haven't decided. Using it as a work car will cost me about $400 for new license plates with like a $200 renewal every 2 years, plus a new EzPass plus having to tint down the windows.... I guess it all depends how much fun I have cleaning it up and if I get the bigger small block i've been looking at.

My dad used to have a Roadmaster limited sedan, with the neon bars on the C pillar. Luckily though, my mom's Caprice does/not have fake wood on the outside, just the interior, where it is an interesing but not too bad contrast to blue upha bathtub olstery. The steering is fairly responsive, but potholes smaller than a bath tub are unlikely to register through the steering wheel.
