Hey /o/, Im a college fag who lives on the outskirts of the city. I have a job that is a 20 minute drive away that I am currently working full time at, as soon as school starts up I will do part time. I live really close to school so I wont need to drive there though.

I am looking for some good suggestions on any type of car to get. I'd like something like an old Ranger or F150 but parking can be a bitch where I am and I don't want to have to lug one of those things around the city (Ranger wouldn't be so bad I guess). Not only that but as far as I know (not much) trucks wont get as good gas mileage especially driving around towns.

Any suggestions at all? Anything is welcome, year or car type, none of that matters. I would say I'm looking for a cheap car (1000) but I have no problem saving up say $3000 for something that is in a bit better shape

Did you ever regret selling a car? I miss my 300SEL (pic related). It had 135k miles and cost me $1500 after maintenance and a few small repairs. 10/10 comfy and got more compliments than any other car I've had

After the new year, I'm going to buy a small present for myself, a 2017 Accord coupe with a V6 and a manual transmission. Now these are supposedly decent cars from stock, but what are good things to replace to make it more sporty? I was thinking tires/brake pads/anti roll bars to start, and then maybe some shorter springs and stiffer shocks if need-be.

The car is used for a lot of miles, both on the highway and in the mountains.

Also, the LX platform the challenger rides on and the 5.7 L V8 have huge aftermarkets. You can put on pieces from the SRT models like brakes and suspension. Plus you can put parts from the 6.4 onto the 5.7 like camshafts and intake manifolds. Dodge also makes warrentied stage kits for the 5.7 that boost it to over 400 hp naturally aspirated
It's kinda sad that you won't be able to get a V6 honda with manual soon.

The boring cars win I guess.
If all you want is a "midrange size" car that goes fast and is Japanese then all o can think of is a Lexus gs or one of the infinity brand, but I've never driven an infinity car so I can't tell you if an accord/camry is basically the same thing or not. In the end you'll have to try them out yourself. But since it sounds like you aren't trying to race/rally with it if you can't manage to try all of them an accord is fine.
If you really hate yourself and want to be "sporty" I'm sure you can get a great price on a V6 Acura TLX.

if you want a sporty v6 coupe why not just pick up a used 370z?

In my opinion, Smart Keys are a complete degenerate of cars. I want the new cars that still have the good old classic metal keys.

In my opinion, your post is a complete degenerate of language.
mercades and bmw already charge $200+ to replace a key and thats not even adding the parts, plus you have to supply your personal info and go through a whole bunch of paper work just to get a replacement
now I'm wondering how they made this "thing" even a more complicated mess than IR keys we have now. why do germans keep over complicating things /o/ why wont they just chill out

A base model FR-S or 86 (though the latter may have changed, dont know lol)

Now they can't even pack any more safety crap so now the entire car has to be automated right down to even driving the damn thing

Can't wait till every car self drives and they run out of ideas apart from meaningless tech upgrade packs every year.

Who gives a fuck about in car entertainment if your bored while driving you should not have a license or drive a car period.

All this infotainment and screens everywhere are terribly distracting as well especially at night.

T. 26 year old techfag

I like technology keep it the fuck out of the drivers cabin thou
I believe this key is an option, you get whatever regular BMW keys look like. This just let's you see vitals about the car and if I remember correctly you can get out of the car and park it into a tight space by holding on the screen or something. The key is way to large for me.

Considering autonomous cars would it be a bad idea to get into trucking now?

Driving a 2013 Honda Fit. Took for a trip to California. Got back and realized I am not getting about 6 mph less per gallon than before I left.

Tires are at 40psi.
Just installed new air filter.
Just had a new alignment.
I filled up twice now so California gas should be out of the tank by now if that could possibly be the cause.

Only thing I haven't done is replace the spark plugs. Something that supposedly doesn't need to be done for another 15k miles.

WTF is causing my economy loss? May as well be driving a truck with this kind of economy.

Could be temperature related. Plug in a obd tool and monitor coolant temps, they should level out probably around 85-95c. If thermostats failing and only getting up to 70c or so, it might not be enough to trigger CEL but enough to hurt mpg. Ive had this exact situation happen on my car. Also drop in weather temps causes drop in MPG

Could any anons give me some advice on how much it would take to do a full rebuild on a 302 Windsor from a Mustang LX? I wanna do it myself, sans the machine work, and I wanna know how much I should plan for. Pic related isn’t mine

Yeah, wouldn't want to have to do something crazy like moving your battery to the trunk or swap out the stock intake.

People who have no idea how to modify cars should shut the fuck up and stop posting opinions like they're facts.

That list was straight forward and to the point. Thanks for that bud. Lol I don’t really know enough to engage in the 302 vs 351 discussion so I’ll leavr that to you guys
Oh by the way, does that include any gains from tuning that I’d have to get done?
I'd argue that swapping an engine and making the car even more front heavy is pointless when OP just wants a "mild" build, just jumping into this thread.
Gains from tuning is kind of moot, since you'll always want the engine to be "tuned" properly. It's not hard to tune a 300hp windsor though, nothing really special to it besides making sure it's not too rich or too lean and that your timing is in order. Basically no tuning required at that power level, honestly. Maybe a bump up to 19/24lb injectors if you really wanted to and an upgraded fuel pressure regulator to tune for A/F.

The issue with your power goal is that for basically the same amount of money (besides actual short block), you could get much more power with something like a 347 or a 408. 347 with those same mods will be in the 400ish range and the 408 could be easily near 500 depending on the cam. It just depends on what you want to do with it though. 347 shortblocks can be had for around $2100 and 408s for a little more. You don't need forged anything or an aftermarket block for a basic street motor with a 6k rev limit.

That's only if you are already taking the motor out though, otherwise there's no need for a 300HP build.

The thing is, no matter how mild the build, if you are swapping shortblocks you have to keep in mind that a 351W will make a lot of power and be even more street friendly at that same power level. A 400HP 351W is way nicer on the street than the 302 at 400hp, not that it is bad either. The weight doesn't matter unless you're trying to compete, because when any weight added by the 351 block would even out with stock weight when you swap on the aluminum heads, intake, headers, etc.

If his shortblock is healthy, then I wouldn't bother touching it unless you had bigger power goals.
