CARS! The Car Super Thread


Recommended Posts

Washed and cleaned out the E today, took me two hours! My god I love this car.

 

The last of your pictures showed your bent rim, A bit dangerous as the tyre could burst when your going along the Freeway.

 

Some deep-dish 18" would suite your Merc well.

 

Added a full length sunroof last week to my PT Cruiser.

^I've had it looked at since it happened. Tire place said it was fine to drive on, but is bent and will vibrate at speed. Yeah, 70mph you can definitely feel it. Thats one of the many "to-do's" on my car, trust me there are a lot.

 

18's would also rub like CRAZY on my car. 17's work fine, and while I would like to have them this really isn't the 190 I would do it to. The car has 25,000 miles, its an 1988, and as far as 190's go, its the slowest NAm of the bunch. Its really more of a "keep in mint condition" car than a "make it look better" car. If I can get my hands on a 190E 2.3-16 I would definitely throw some AMG style rims on it among other things.

Sorry to hijack the thread, but Colin, here's a little of what you can expect...

Throw that turtle wax in the trash...this stuff is the poo-poo. ;)

A little work, but well worth it.

And as for the clay/compound/wax...this is the type of shine to expect.

But this is what the results could be.

That brake dust you mentioned....here's another prime example of pain in the arse wheels to work on.

Totally random, nothing to do with this thread at all question, but I have to ask Scott.....do you actually own any hats, or are you strictly visor only? I can tell you are quite clearly a "visor enthusiast" and I just thought I'd ask.

I decided on naming him Ringo, with the help of my friends. I love him so much.

 

I've named mine Reginald for now...

 

As in "Reg, Reginald Fairfield!". Does anybody know what i'm talking about?

 

I want to think of am amazingly British name that doesn't scream brittain. =]

I own a 2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport and its great.

 

I've also owned two Mustangs - 1981 and 1999 and while I really loved my 99 they just aren't practical for Ohio winters. My last car was a 2002 Dodge Stratus R/T and while I liked it I was spending too much money on new tires and rims due to potholes.

You know, that's one of those things that you just don't think about until someone mentions it. I guess I am to visors what Larry is to sleeveles shirts....although, yes, I do wear hats quite often. They just very rarely find their way onto my TRs.

^Speaking of hats, I have one you'd probably appreciate.

And as for the topic, I rock a 1996 Honda Prelude, which is in desperate need of a wash and waxing. That'll be on the to-do list once the semester ends.

Too bad Game 7 wasn't a little more eventful...

Speaking of visors, I want one exactly like this:

 

 

I've searched and haven't found any nearly that cool.

I usedto drive a Plymouth Acclaim. I don't remember what year it was.. I'm guessing '98. Had to sell it, though... So I've gotten very used to the Bus Systems here in So Cal. But soon I will be driving again. I set my sights on something like a.... Dodge Magnum.

Sorry for digging up an old topic but I'm sure it won't hurt.

 

Our car (which I obviously don't drive) is none other than a ten year old Seat Alhambra. It's not the fastest or the most powerful car in the world but its pratical, spacious and has hardly ever broken down(in comparison it its ridiculously high milage).

Great shot of our car (took by me)
