I’ll start with mine. If I get the all of the know-how and the money, I am going to build the most American Toyota ever.

I’ll start off with a Pontiac Vibe, the GM reskin of the Toyota Matrix that was built in California.

I will replace the 2zz with an LS engine, pair it with a proper GM transmission. Maybe I can get a drive shaft and rear diff from a Toyota Caldina and maybe that will work idk but I want to make this happen. I am also well aware of how retarded this idea is. I don’t care. If I get the means, this is happening.

This will be the most American Toyota ever.

Now, what are your retarded ideas Anons?

Buy blown up 3.6 accadias and put 3.4s in them, sell to unsuspecting soccer moms for profit

Use a diesel continental crossmember and driveshaft to facilitate a aluminum 4.0 rover swap into a foxbody

Use an 84-86 cherokee 904 to facilitate an ls4 swap into any FR application

Use a xlr 6l80 to facilitate a ls4 swap into any fr application (morosso 4t80 pan)

Put a 2 bulb fairmont nose on a foxbody hatchback, volvo T5R + T5. Have some fun with lots of fibreglass and filler. pretend you have a swb B2. Bonus points for not having B2 understeer.

Cut all the subframes off an A body wagon, cut the B pillar out, fit the door frame to door of a 2dr A body. Mount on shortbed s10 frame (matches wheelbase perfectly)

Buy 4x4 2dr lwb 99-04's, swap 92-14 van bodies onto the frame (same 138" wb). Sell 4x4 vans to retards who think thats practical. Sell 2wd trucks to retarded spics who cant tell you suck at welding

I know that piston aircraft are not the same as cars, but planes like the B36 were piston driven and ran on conventional avgas, basically leaded 100 octane fuel, and has a flight ceiling of 50k feet. At 50k feet temperatures can be as low -75 degrees Fahrenheit. Like other people in the thread have said, engines can run in really cold environments. Personally I used to work on the oil patch where it would be deep in the negatives for weeks at a time. The trouble isnt with them running, engines generate a lot of heat. Its getting them started.

Starting at -40 is cake for any properly maintained car.

Source: have driven Fords, Hondas, Toyotas, Chevys, Mazdas, Hyundais in -40, all started fine. The only one that didn't start was a Jeep, no surprise there though.
>>
>>27597679
I think the US still uses an old D6. There's videos of them starting it up. The Australians have a pair of D7s. Never seen anything during the polar night though but that's probably more due to visibility than temperature. The limiting factor is keeping the fuel/hydraulics from freezing.

front end is making a clunk noise, diagnose as bad struts
this was on a 2012 ford fusion and i was following a youtube video
did everything to a T and get to tighten the strut to the strut mount under the hood, literally the last thing, i had put the tires back on and lowered it and everything
video says 75 ft lbs (or something ridiculous) i was in robot mode and fucking sent it, breaking off one stud from a brand new strut
the real torque was somewhere down around 25 ft lbs
every comment on the video is boomers yelling “do NOT TORK TO 75 FT LBS !!!111” i was just retarded and assumed that this video that’s been perfect so far would continue to be perfect
so thats how i wasted $125 on a quick strut
aside: it ended up being the ball joint as the source of the clunk, so i replaced the struts for no reason (they were still old tho)

Nothing to do with maintenance, but a while back, I scrubbed the hell out of my leather passenger seat with a Mr Clean Magic Eraser, without realizing the things are fucking melamine. The luster is gone. I can always pick up a new front bench from a u-pick, I guess.

the more practical use would be for a steering wheel that's destroyed but for whatever reason you can't swap it out for an aftermarket or replacement.

I've gotten weirdly fascinated by this little smiling pillbug thing now that I'm living in a city where gas is expensive and parking is tight. Any real point in looking for low mileage on something like this since the battery will have aged anyway? For what it's worth, I'm up in leafland and I hear the older non-lithium batteries handle the cold better.

After being a sedan/hatchback cuck my entire life, I've come to realize that the soccer moms were right. Driving an SUV just feels better. Better visibility. Better safety. More comfortable ride. Better in bad driving conditions. Trucks are nice too, but if you don't tow anything heavier than 2000lbs, they're total overkill.

After taking the SUVpill, I can't go back to sedans now. Why does /o/ hate crossovers and SUVs? Is it poorfag cope?

But you act like this never ever happens to cars. It's a result of oblivious drivers, not visibility. The difference is a car would just bump into the rock and drive away with a cracked bumper. It's only when SUVs with their higher ground clearance and steep approach angles hit it that they go up and over and get stuck and create a spectacle. Obviously there's no pictures of cars getting stuck because it's impossible to do so. Not because they have better visibility.

what a good review
and from the perspective of a daily driver and not some quarter-mile-is-life drag strip larper or a small hat tribe journalist. Just a guy who was bored and decided to buy a fun car.
I find it funny that he says the Corolla got better fuel economy but if you drive the Corolla like you'd drive a Chally you sure as fuck won't. I borrow my family's 07 manny Rolla occasionally and I can get the mpg into the low 20s which is where the Chally sits on average with normal city driving.
on highways you can get better than 30 and around 500 miles of driving range, which the Corolla literally cannot do because not only does it rev high on the highway but it's tank is lower capacity so it can't go as far even when you drive slow. A V6 chally stays below 2000rpm in 8th up to about 80 mph while achieving significantly better fuel economy than the gold standard 4-cylinder Toyota in this scenario.

I already have my enthusiast car and my 20 year old beater is screaming at me to kill it. 215k miles on it but Ill drive it till the wheels fall off. In the meantime what is the transport meta for a solely-GM man? Low-mile well maintained 15-20yo sedan? Finance new? Buy 5yo used? My enthusiast vehicle is a truck so I don't need one of those. Dont care much about gas mileage or doors, just reliability. Have been looking at low-mile Monte Carlos from the early 00s.

Since the Buick 3800 and the Panther platform ceased to exist America hasn't really been making great reliable commuter cars. They let the Japs take over that market and they focused on performance models, luxury models, trucks and SUVs.

That being the case I'd be inclined to tell you to get a 2008 Buick Grand Prix with the 3800 or if you really do want max reliability from a GM then a Pontiac Vibe; but that's cheating since its basically a Toyota Matrix with a Toyota engine and transmission.
>>
>>27597675
I kinda noticed. after 2015 it seems like there are hardly any GM Vehicles. Looks like the 3800 might be something to ensure based on the replies here. My beater has the 3600 v6 and it's treated me well for 85k miles. Transmissions seemed to be GM's weak link... I fear mine is on the way out as it skips from first to third and has for years...

Now obviously intermittent dash lights could be a lot of things, some of which could be pretty pricey; but do any of you know how much it would cost to get the ABS module replaced?

Its got some dings in the paint; but at that price I'm not sure I care.
