I mean, suit yourself anon, but I don't think it's necessarily about the tastes of an individual. It would be about explaining why air conditioners cause performance losses, what might lead someone to pair that with an exclusively-performance engine, and what it was about the hemi that made it so expensive and difficult to produce that it can only be found in a vanishingly small amount of cars.

Nobody cares about what you think. Your shit opinion obviously has 0 effect on the market.
yes but they aren't strong, put 500hp through a stock rod and see what happens vs an after market forged h-beam.
Are you being stupid on purpose? The list of jap engines that can do 500 hp on the stock rods would be very long.

Yeah, great market you have here.

But that's shit so mundane even people without a licence know about it, mate.
>what might lead someone to pair that with an exclusively-performance engine
Who cares ? Retreading the preferences of the schmuck who ordered the car 50 years ago is not interesting in the slightest; at most it'll be infuriating in the cases I've seen:
>the 3.0 CSL sold awfully low numbers because the posh fucks who could afford BMW couldn't appreciate the idea of a stripped-down track-worthy 3series
and other flavors of "this based stuff didn't sell because it didn't appeal to the cunts with the wallet for it".

How do I stop having anxiety attacks when driving on the freeway? Driving anywhere else is fine.
keep driving on the freeway. it’ll get better with experience
What kind of car you have, and how fast do you drive it?
It has nothing to do with driving. Probably work, family, life related. I had the same issue a few years back. If you're type A and have a lot of responsibility it's a common. Talk to a head doctor that uses CBT, shit helps. I found it wasn't the driving, it was the destinations.
take care of whatever's stressing you out, if you can't then stop worrying about it
alternatively consider suicide

>Taking advice from poorfag niggermutts
If you're considering a Maverick Tremor why not a Bronco Sport Badlands? They're also very capable for what they are and you could sleep in it.
>You’re better off with a Subaru than that thing
Lol, lmao even. You can't be serious.
Why Badlands over Everglade, Wildtrak, or even Raptor?
>Nissan Patrol or Mitsubishi Montero
Yeah OP, just import this rare old vehicle that was never sold in the US and won’t have any parts available.
Maverick can tow 4000, Bronco Sport tows 2000, AND costs more. Bronco looks a lot better, though. Love the style on 'em.

Plenty of plastics in a car. bumpers, inside, around windows... how do you fix/replace these?
it feels like once plastic begins to go bad, the car is doomed.
you can replace mechanical parts and somehow fix rust. what about plastics?
Car is too old when plastics start to make noise. New car time after 30,000 miles or three years MAX.
All else is poorfag cope.
If you can't even afford a new, cheap M3 tessie you can't afford our little hobby.
>what about plastics?
don't fuck with them unnecessarily, apply protectant to keep them from fading, replace as needed

thread derailed, congratulations nigger
A new m3 tesla is still 30k anon, some people just can't afford to get in, as cheap as that is.
Your only hope at this point is for the car to be popular enough for companies to keep making aftermarket reproduction parts for years. Of course those will probably be cheap chinkshit plastic that'll disintegrate in a year.

This is smart. Having a sick car in your 20's is worth more than whatever you spend on it, as long as you don't go too crazy. When you get old, no amount of money will EVER make up for all the fun and memories you could have had in your 20's.

Pretty much a running truck with 114,000 miles.

Should i sell it or keep it ??? I bought it for $1000 dollars
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
i'll give you $50 for that pile of jap crap
over 100k? might as well take it to the scrap heap
Sell it for 2000.buy a sedan
Sell it to me so I can turn it into a compacted cubic meter of truck I can use as a table
What's the engine? How's the undercarriage look?
I'd say keep it. You have a damn near immortal truck. The gas mileage is still decent by todays standards too. If not you can sell it for a couple grand.

It's not a muscle car it's a parts-bin car thrown together by the accountants at nissan.
It's a G35 coupe/skyline coupe with the exact same mechanicals but slightly different body styling It's fucking embarrassing.
what do you think the skyline was anon

or the silvia being the same damn car from 1989 to 2002 other than panels
>what do you think the skyline was anon
Is this some kind of retard question? The rb26 was only fitted to GT-Rs and aftermarket specials like the stagea autech. The skyline GT-R was built for one purpose, to win races.
Frankly I'm puzzled why you would bring up the skyline to defend the z33 it's a losing move every time.

2009 Prius w/ 180k for $5k. It’s the last of the generation twos, and I can do Uber with it until end of year so it pays for its new battery.

Imagine paying $50 for an Uber ride and the driver shows up in a fucking 2009 Prius. 360 degrees and walk away.
>I’d still think you’d be better off taking a part time job for $15/hr or something, rather than rack up the miles on your car, but you do you mang.
I need the flexbility just for a few months so I can focus on my business, since getting it up and running on a routine like schedule takes a lot of erratic work initially. Do you have any recommendations of where else I might look?

I fundementally disagree with Uber as a long term prospect, but it's essentially an advance on the equity in my car and untaxed income until it's due. Which in my case, could buy me enough time with the cashflow to get my business up, step my hours down, then support myself via business while graduating and job hunting. I'd appreciate any advice, made a thread here:
I went ahead and paid for the carfax too and it's clean aside from 'damaged reported' from the cat being stolen, it has a shield now.
Piston rings on them are known to go bad, if it is burning 1/2 a quart every 1000 miles then it is probably not a 250k mile engine failing or causing worse issues. Not sure if the piston soak will work or not. You can also try other apps like doordash or lyft in your area and you will need to get an inspection before giving rides. Rides typically end up paying a lot better than food delivery around here. I would get seat covers, some fragrance you can spray after smelly customers and a phone mount. Don't just take any offer the app throws at you, be picky because you don't want to do one shitty 50 minute delivery for $8 when you could do 2 $12 rides in that time. Also use something like gridwise for your own mileage tracking instead of the built in apps.

It's not that it requires skill to not scrape, but rather you have so little skill that you manage to find a way to scrape where normally developed adults with basic motor function wouldnt

For a long time they were a lot cheaper than buying CD's and mechanically they didn't skip so they were better for mobile applications like cars, boats and portables. There is still quite a niche for them from the musician crowd for some reason, the last car I imported from Japan had a pretty good Sony, single DIN mini-disk head unit which I didn't have much use for but a guy I worked with who was a professional jazz musician leapt on it for 'free' like it was made of gold or something.
It's probably still on his 40ft offshore fishing vessel as best I know to this day doing tunes and tuna
>because the format was popular? why else?
But why only the UK and Japan? Why not the US or RoW?
because they drive on wrong side
I'm guessing uk was a trial market also just because they were offered doesn't mean they're popular I've never seen one in a real car
