DIRTBIKE4X4 I totaly disagree with you on your statement saying that imports suck. I worked at a garage for 2 years of my life and guess what, imports in general are way more reliable then domestic vehicles. I would take a Toyota Tacoma over a Ford Ranger anyday. Seriously, show me all the Ford Ranger's that have over 260K miles on them with no major repairs and compare this to the number of daily driven Tacoma's and you will find the Tacoma's are much more realiabe. Sorry to bust your bubble, but domestic cars just arn't the quality and don't have the realiability that imports are and always have been
Ok I agree that imports are usually more reliable than domestic (that's a given) but my Topaz had ~350,000km on it and was still running fine. If it had been a 5speed I probably would still be driving it...it was a cheap car (and felt like one when you drove it) but could take all sorts of abuse :)

Ok well you bring a toyota tundra and i'll bring my f-150 and come to work on my friends farm for a week with me and we'll see who's truck holds up to the abuse of being used for work. Then (if your tundra's still in one piece) we'll take em both muddin and see how many times I have to winch you out.

BTW, there are no foregin companies who make anything larger than a 1/2 ton pick up, so that alone pretty much rules out them for most work applications.

Eh I see this turning into a big arguement about which trucks and which cars are better. Eh, I'd make a comment on the whole truck thing, but I'm not really that much into trucks and I really don't know that much about them so I am going to be quite on this subject. Now if you want to talk about drag racing and sports cars, I'm all game.

I drive nothing (which would be quite obvious) but I drool over these, which I probably shouldn't, considering you'll struggle to find one with a $50,000 price tag.

For the uber geeks, there's something for you in this car too. All is explained in this video...

Skyline R34

I drive a 1997 Ford Fiesta, bordeaux red with a eeyore plush behind the rear window :)
We had a Fiesta back when Ford was importing them to the US. Ours was a 1979 2-door (only way they came then) white with tan vinyl interior and 4 speed manual (again, no automatic offered). I liked driving the car, but years later parts were getting harder and more expensive to get. That's when I finally bought the 1994 Tercel to replace the Fiesta as my work commute car. If they were sold here again I'd certainly consider buying another one if the Toyota gave out.

So spirit, essentially they removed the auto computer correcting services form the Skyline? Sounds good. I prefer regular gauges and one of those readout panels somewhere else.

OH my god, an Oldsmobile Sabre TYPE R, I want one, there so fast. Anything with type R on it is good for like 70 extra horsepower, just ask any Honda fan.
