What do you drive around in?

Recommended Posts

I know some of you in NYC might not have a vehicle cause ya'll got busses and trains at like every intersection. But for anyone who's got a vehicle what is it.

 

I drive a 97 F-250 Heavy Duty, 7.3 Powerstroke Diesel. :cool:

I am about to buy another car myself. My last car was a 2000 Ford Taurus. Had to srcap it due to cost of fixing the transmission which was at least $2,000.

 

A question/advice & off topic. My final choices are 1999-2003 midsizes cars like a Buick/Chevy, (GM is only American cars i buy now)Tototya Camry, Hyundai Sontanta. Any advice as i can only afford about $4,000-5,000 at the most to spend.

Buy an old mercedes diesel. Costs more to fuel, sure, but gets more mpg plus you can use veggie oil if you wanna! B)

1999 Trek 5200 carbon-fiber frame road bike with Campy components with 50K+ miles on it.

 

Also a 1991 Mazda 626 that I drive to church on Sundays with about the same number of miles on it. It's a lot more trouble to fix than the bike. B)

I have a 2007 Specialized Allez, the entry-level one, with Tiagra components. Thinking about getting a 105 rear derailleur with Ultegra bar-end shifters though.

The closest thing that I have to a four-wheeled vehicle is a skateboard: Element fiberlight deck with Thunder trucks, Spitfire wheels and Bones Reds bearings. I'm not a huge fan of cars because I see them as nothing but gas guzzlers. If I do decide to drive in the future, I'll get a motorcycle most likely.

Once scooters and four wheeled bicycles and what not... I'm fine on my own two feet

My uncle has a Ford freight van and my other uncle drives a sightseeing bus. No lie.

1995 Chevy G-20 Van with a V8-3O5, bought it used 10 yrs ago, had 124,000 highway miles, as of today it has 205,325 miles, van came from PA. Runs very well but rust has been a problem, have a few small holes on the floorboard as well as along the sides and wheel wells. I hope to get 1 more year since the rust/rot can lead to a safety issue.

I'm surprised you didn't go for the Cash for Clunkers deal. You would've gotten $4500 for what is essentially a $500 car.

LOL 3 years ago I was driving around the 1987 Chevy G-10 with the V8...oh man did that thing guzzle gas but it was fun...

 

Value was about $300 when I was done w/ it so donated it for a tax write off since I wasn't going to sell it, but it did its job for what I needed it to do that year with one minor exception

I've got a lovely 1995 Corolla (sitting in the driveway with 243,200 miles and counting) that my aunt needed to get rid of when she got a "new" 1994 Camry (less miles). Of course, I've fixed most of the little problems it had, and therefore became the family mechanic, although becoming an actual one remains as a backup if I never get into the MTA.

I have 2006 Honda Civic sedan EX, and it runs excellent. Honda's are the best, and very good on the gas miles. I brought it brand new that year!!! They hold up there value.
