Searchbar came up with nothing so here it is!

UG's OWN CAR THREAD!!!


Post anything related to cars


The only rules?

- No spamming (duh)
Keep it on-topic fellas.

- If Posting Pics, The Pics MUST include a car
Pretty much explained right there.
No posting pointless pictures.



Post away!

(oh yes, my start)

I'm going to be getting a car of my own between sometime now and my birthday on September 5th.

I'll most likely be getting a Mitsubishi Eclipse of some sort but this is my specific model of choice.

Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder

img removed

Incredibly sexy, and at an affordable price.
Also pretty damn fast.



Update:

Nice to see my thread still up, running, and alive

Anyways I never got that Eclipse, I got a 2006 Nissan Sentra 1.8SE. It fell apart over the years and just last week I got a new ride

My girl <3 :

2010 Dodge Charger SXT

Its a 1987 VL Commodore SL (ex police car)
It has a Nissan straight 6 3.0l turbo engine (RB30DET, same as r31 skyline).
Mines currently putting out 182rwkw at 11 psi.

Then, about two minutes later of just plowing, I can feel it coming. She's still moaning and rolling back, and then I pull out. I grab her by her hair, pull her head up, and yell out:
"BOOM, HEADSHOT!"

Thanks.

I'm pretty sure if there was an OFFICIAL already, carmel_l would've mentioned it when
she verified my making of an official car thread.

Hmm, I think you're thinking about the Eclipse GT.

Although, I have heard of a few Spyder moddings, because it CAN be turned into quite a an awesome racing car for generally, cheap.

When I get mine, i'm definately gonna throw some No2 on mine, upgraded brakes, and get some tint on my windows.

I'm going to try and get a custom plate that says

Not that I really care.. My car is dead, and I'm getting ripped off by the insurance company. Seriously, only 7 grand for a new car, when I owed about 4 grand? That leaves 3 grand for a new one.

it's just simply a tribute to UG.

Guitar is my true passion, therefore it belongs where I can publicly show it without ruining the body of my car

I think if you're gonna pay extra for a license plate, make it something that has true meaning to you.

Yeah, but they are the one and only. It's more show business style. Personally, I think the two threads members should have a battle to see who gets to stick around.

Oh, I got into a little car accident and my car is totalled last week. I bought it in 05, and now it is dead. But they're being bastards.

Mine gets to stick around because when OFFICIAL is claimed, anything related to the broad topic MUST now be put in the thread, or else it is locked

besides, that thread is 6days since gone.


If your car can no longer be used, they can't legally charge you for a repair, since it wont' do anything right?

Look over their terms perhaps, if they still push payment, take them to court?

God knows lol, it was a slight hill but 106, with 4 people in it (therefore, full) is quite a feat lol. I do have pics of the car on my MySpace page, but I've just remembered it's private. My UG profile pic and my avatar have it in it but it's kinda sliced off the front lol

Your lil' thing managed THAT?!

Looks like your specific car got special attention by the factory or previous owner(s)

Just upload it to tinypic.com and repost it here then
unless you don't have a full car pic.

In that case, upload the one from your profile

I'm taking them to court. I wanted to be nice, but now I'm done with that. I thought it was completely unfair, it was a three year old car, and completely destroyed. I was almost done with payments, too. Now I'm stuck staying with my parents because they live closer to my job, and I can't get to and from my house without bumming a ride and over paying people for gasoline. Plus, I can't get a rental because I'm under 25, which is completely unfair. It is also getting in the way of my music, since I can't play with people, and I can't bring my amp, electric, and pedals to my parents house. So I'm pretty much stuck playing my acoustic when I play.

Well I've never gone looking for any but I've been under the bonnet and nothing stands out as extraordinary lol, plus judging from the previous owner, my 20something year old female cousin, I doubt it's been fiddled with. Maybe it's just because when I "tested" it, I was listening to the Blues Brothers soundtrack, so it got the car in the mood :-p lol

Good, counter-sue them about 6x more for not only their illegality of charging for repairs on the unrepairable (is that a word? Lol), transportation issue, conflict with job, conflict with place of residence, and stress.

That's just a simple way of putting, find a way to make that into much more complex statements and you'll most definately win.

I can't drive a car yet but as soon as I save up money i'm buying this honda civic. Just not so pimped up I think a used one in good condition would be about $5000-9000.
Not that I have that much money at the moment

Honda Civic compacts are pretty nice cars, don't get me wrong, but what kind of neighborhood do you live in/regularly park in?

Civics are incredibly easy to break into my friend
My cousin's old one was broken into and stolen from.....twice.

Why don't you sell it off then and get another Chevy for maybe a little extra.
Then you'll have some extra at least 5k leftover

They're not really charging me for repairs on anything. They know they can't repair it. I owed about 4000 dollars in car payments, when it got destroyed I still had to pay for the car. So, they want to give me 7000. 4000 of it would have to be used to finish the payments on the totalled car.

It's just so simple to steal from, Honda makes another model of compacts that look EXACTLY like that I believe, which look the same, which provide better built-in security.

Civics are generally just easy to open the lock.

Look into it, the model name just escapes me right now because I think it's somewhat new.

THAT'S BULL****!!!

My stepfather totalled his old Ford Excursion past the point of repair and he didn't have to finish paying it off.

Court, now.

for that 7000dollars, counter-sue for 20000.
Just do it.

They're supposed to take whatever payments you made on that car, and pass it over to another, used I believe (not sure if it works for new cars), car and help pay off that.

I'll tell you man, when you start, you'll love it as long as you're naturally good at it.

I actually started a little while ago, and i'm naturally good at it

When I get my car, I'm gonna race my Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder against his
He also just started driving and he too is naturally good.

Heres my AE86 coupe the other AE86 is my brothers (We had it for almost 10 years now)



It looks like ass right now I know but it will be repainted soon in my garage. I am just too lazy right now lol.

All it has right now is just the zenki front bumper right now. I have about $8000 saved that I am putting in my car.

I am installing a rebuilt smallport 4age, Greddy coilovers, advan a3a rims, Falken Azenis tires, bride seat, cusco roll cage and a plethora of other crap.

Basically what I am doing is spending a whole deal of money to make my really slow car into just a slow car but it will kill in handling.

My main concern right now is safety and reliabilty.

The car will ONLY see track use in the future. But right now its my daily.

NO DRIFTING!
This is my Signature.

How do you have on planning to have it refinished?

And when do you plan on having this done so we can see the final result.
It sounds like it's going to be a beast

(in point to the bold)
Track use? Do you race on a team?
