>And then someone Toyota thought it was a great idea to give that legacy to a SUBARU.
its because toyota are lazy japs, and subaru already had compact platform built for a longitudinal engine and transmission in the form of the impreza, so all they had to do was make the awd fuck off and mess with the engine a bit to make it slightly less subaru. unless you would rather toyota have used a tacoma platform, engine and transmission for their sports coupe cus thats all they had in terms of rwd 4 cyls with manual transmissions
>The Matrix was almost rebooted into a proper (supercharged) sports hatch with AWD but then the recession stopped that from happening.
So the curse almost hit Toyota again where covid almost killed GR Yaris and GR Corolla?
Lazy and cucked.
Third time's the charm, it would seem.
Slower than 1.5T civic
Nothing went wrong
It was just a chink copy of the Mustang, no point of having one of these when you could have an actual Mustang

Yeah, you waited WAAAAY too long.

Ferrari F355s are expensive now.
The market is pretending Lamborghini Gallardos are worth something
The approachable Lancias are no longer approachable
And now the ever dependable Honda NSX is turning into an F40.

Even before the new one came out, NSXs we're regularly posted for 40-100k, the price will only ever go up. They're not super rare luckily, but lot of owners I've talked to love them so much that they don't want to sell. Also Honda still offers full OEM servicing, and owners are fully willing to pay the extra dollar to keep them in good shape.
that's going to be up for sale for awhile, just like the million dollar NSX Super GT homologation car that no one bought.
Same with the s2000

What kind of Volkswagen is best? Is it true that the engines spontaneously turn to dust at 90k? Is a 1.8t with a 5 speed ok? What about a new 1.5, or an older diesel?

The routan with the chrysler 3.8 is the most reliable modern VW
No, it's specifically because VW cannot do a timing chain to save their lives.

Do a 2.5 I5 or a late model 2.0T op. 1.8/1.4T have timing chain tensioner issues
Isn't the Routan just a VW'd caravan minus the stow and go seats?
It seems like it. I'm actually checking one out to buy Friday.

Back in the mid-90s, when I was a full-time mechanic, I prided myself in troubleshooting driveability problems, check engine lights, emissions failures and such. That became my primary role in the shop. Instead of spending most of my day spinning wrenches, I was typically armed with an OBD scanner or DVOM. So when a customer came in with a sweet little 1966 Mustang (a recently purchased retirement gift to herself), complaining of poor gas mileage and lackluster performance, it seemed like a break from the doldrums of checking engine codes and a return to a time when things were simpler...or so I thought.

She dropped the car off, and I took pleasure in driving it a number of times to replicate her issue, except that I could not; it always ran great. But when I pulled the spark plugs, they were pretty sooty, but would clear up after I drove it a few times. I hated to waste her money replacing parts, but every few weeks she would be back with the same complaint. I even drove the car home a few times and calculated the gas mileage, which at about 15 MPG, seemed reasonable for a V8 with a 4bbl and no overdrive. I ended up rebuilding the carburetor, adjusting valves, replacing points and condenser, etc... and the problem continued, except I had never experienced it.

Finally, I asked her to take me for a ride so I could pinpoint the exact moment she experienced the issues. Well, it took less than a minute to realize the problem. When she got in the car, the first thing she did was pull out the handle for the manual choke and hang her purse on it. Then I understood why she said it ran fine at first, then worse the farther she drove. The word “choke” had worn off the handle over the years and she mistakenly thought it was the fresh air vent. At her request, I put a new choke cable on it, and we laughed about it whenever she came in for work on one of her other cars.
While replacing the thermostat on my old 1991 Ford F150 Lariat, I got the cover housing all cleaned up and ready for the new gasket (which had some handy adhesive on one side, how convenient). Well, I set the gasket to the side, and seconds later, it was nowhere to be found. I tore that garage apart looking for that gasket.

After hearing plenty of not so nice words coming from the garage, my wife asked me what was wrong. I told her about the gasket in a very heated way, with arms and hands flailing. She immediately started laughing like crazy, and boy was I mad! She kept pointing at my elbow but was laughing too hard to speak. The gasket was stuck to my left elbow! At least I found the dang thing.
>stripped a brake line flare nut and tore the brake hose, had to replace both
>somehow managed to ruin the threads on a tie rod end when working on a CV axle, fixed it with a die quickly enough
>ordered the wrong cv axle so it wouldnt fit, have a new one now hope it fits
>botched the coolant bleeding because my stupid 4x4 doesnt have a bleed valve, had to drill holes in thermostat then order a new one
>overtorqued fuel return line over fuel injectors so the return washers had fused inside it, had to use the smallest drill bit to carefully and painstakingly get it all out
>tried to manually press the bushings in the control arm only to realise that a connecting rod prevents me from doing so without special equipment and a hydraulic press, ruined a tool because the bushing got lodged deep into the press bit, ended up ordering aftermarket control arm.

I put some big bites in the lower front bumper from using ramps on a bugmobile that didn't have enough clearance. It's just cosmetic and only noticeable if you look for it, but I still feel dumb about it. Newfags, if you have a 6-inch clearance cuckmobile like me, just learn how to use a jack.

How does anyone afford a new truck? Do you have to make over 100k a year? I make 72k and it would be hard unless I put 15k or more down.

Who is buying these? Dual income couples? Most people don't make close to 100k in the US.

Same here, forever alone.
Modern half tons just look utterly shit and at the point I want something larger than a small truck I'd be better off getting a true SUV.
Retards do not see the final price and only see the monthly payment price. They don't consider the length of the term and how much they'll end up losing. They don't know how to use a loan calculator either to see that usually loans double to total paid price by the end of the loan term, due to the interest. Interest loans are literally just a way to make someone pay double over time without realizing it. They're usually set up to be just about double or more by the time you get through the entire loan term and have paid all the extra interest. Always use a loan calculator and know what you're actually paying.
Most people are retarded. I make more money than you, buddy and I'd hate to break it to you, you can't afford the car even with a 15k downpayment either. I'm looking at a 30k~ ish car. Which is budget/entry level car prices for what is a well above average salary. Welcome to hell.

You need a 10-20k used truck. Sorry to break the bad news.
Half tons look like shit but the current small trucks don't? lol okay take your meds and get your eyes checked. What "true SUV's" do you think are better?

I'm in the market for my first project(ish) car. What's the 2024 meta for Jap shitboxes, /o/?

Looking for:
>manual + RWD
>cheap but not necessarily poverty-tier - no more than $8k, ideally less
>not a complete PITA to work on
>no older than 90s
>ugly is fine
I'm currently looking at Nissan ZX300s, but all of the manual examples in my area are high mileage (150k+), and the engine bay looks cramped

Non-Jap recommendations are also welcome, as long as they're budget-friendly and fun
Give me some ideas, I'm in the southwestern USA

The only real annoying thing on the z32 is replacing the turbos with the engine and trans still in the car.
In the same boat as OP, I want a 260 or 280z, opel GT, something similar. manual, RWD, small but not "you're gonna die in this" small, cheap, plentiful parts/aftermarket, and not a nightmare to wrench on. And I keep stumbling on weird shit like a rolling chassis for $10k, or a fairly good example for $35k. Then there will be like 4-6 months without anything resembling what I want listed for sale (just drive 50 hours to save $500 on a vehicle!) or actually insane people wanting BAT money for their rusty shitbox that doesn't run.

I wish that Datsun guild in Oklahoma had a website to sell a decent project car but they don't and I don't want to drive 3 hours to see if they have anything suitable for sale.

With those FRS and GT86's getting over 100k miles at $10k I'm still iffy on a 'new' car like that being sold for so cheap and having zero character like a 70s japanese sports car. Is there a good place to look for these types of cars? I'm not quite ready to spend the $60k+ on a Factory 5 car, but damn, I6 manual RWD cars have risen to kinda high prices.

Michigan (eastern) path would be good because it covers the Mackinac bridge. Also it goes through more of the Appalachians which is excellent driving. Those stretches through Indiana, Illinois, and Ohio will be brutally boring and I think the eastern path crosses the plains at the narrowest section. Central path also includes Chicago which is a god forsaken pit of traffic hell.

For those of you who have one, either yourself or with your spouse. This is my wife and I's.

1988 Mitsubishi Mighty Max SPX MacroCab- Wife bought it to learn how to work on carburetors. Really rare, fully optioned version of *the* most expensive 80's pickup. 2.6L 4 cyl is basically a tractor engine, paired up to the 4WD system straight out of the Mitsubishi Dakar Rally trucks of the era.

2014 Honda CR-Z 6MT - I bought this on fucking Cars and Bids back in 2021 to use as a supercommuting vehicle when I had a 193 mile daily round trip commute coast-to-coast in Florida. Slow as shit, and not particularly fuel efficient all things considered. Still love it though. Probably going to trade for a Miata soon since it's starting to develop electrical gremlins.

2021 Polestar 2 - Fucking love this thing. Nearly 500 horsepower and the best suspension on any vehicle we've ever driven. Got it for weekend road trips with the wife and to replace the CR-Z for my job, which requires travelling 30-200mi a day to see clients.

That gets you $2-8k in interest annually assuming a conservative 5% yield. More than pays for vehicle rentals for 99% of people.
