What do you drive?


#1

Thought I’d bring this one over from the Arch Forum. What vehicle do you drive?

I drive one of these https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Falcon_(FG). The G6 series.

I’m still stuck on my despatch nail, a battered old Honda CBF600N (carburetted model), it’s dull but worthy :slight_smile:

Gonna need to upgrade soon when London’s ULEZ comes in — I’m torn between Suzuki’s SV650, Honda’s CBF500N & the KTM Duke 390.

The smaller bikes would be more sensible (and cheaper to run) but the bigger L-twin would be safer on motorways: I have had people try to tag me and it’s nice to be able to pull away at will.

Let’s see if I can explain …

In Brazil, there is only a 3 ° car, in other words a bad car in Europe and other places is a good car here, this country is very distracted by the simple fact that we have a mercenary system and government.

A launch out there will only get here after about three years or more, sometimes not enough …

I have this https://goo.gl/J74LYG (year 1996)
(Brazilian model is different from European, all are 2.0 8 or 16v, or turbo)

It’s that https://goo.gl/49i5v3 (year 2000)
(new Brazilian model has several differences)

Brazil does not value the sweat of its people.
What happens on television has nothing to do with our reality here.

I drive a Chevy Traverse so kindly gifted to me by the Military Warrior Support foundation.


#6

a class at Mercedes cdi1700D of 20 years, my next car, will be a camper van with bed and gas to travel around Europe, but in a few years.
Sig :sob:

…but I am not allowed to drive…


#8

A 93 GMC 4x4 Sonoma, having a nice vehicle in this neck of the woods, when you need to go into the mountains would be crazy. And yes, it still has a carburetor and very little in electronics.


#9

1st car I ever owned was a 1979 Ford Pinto ESS.

Got into an accident and it was totaled out at just 800 USD in damages. :open_mouth:

Walked in the dealer next day and bought a Mustang 5.0 convertible. :smile:


#10

That is a nice car,


#11

Too bad they don’t let you drive; do some serious road tripping with that rig - head to Guadalupe for some Baja Med and beer.


#12

That’s tempting…I will apply for a driving license, maybe that is the motivaton I need.
Are you plannig a trip there? Got any room? :innocent:


#13

No, I live on the opposite coast now. Cajun food is good, but ocean fishing off Baja followed by authentic Mexican food & beer is a tough combo to beat.


#14

Did someone mention Mexican food?


#15

After driving old bangers for years, I finally had the opportunity to buy a ‘better’ car, and I got myself a Honda Civic Hybrid.

Hopefully this will last me longer than the ‘good-for-a-few-years’ cars I’ve had in the past :slight_smile:


#16

Did someone mention beer?


#17

I test drove an Accord this year – Honda makes a damn fine car.

Enjoy!


#18

We just sold Marie’s beloved '72 Duster (started life as a fairly boring white ride w/ a 318 motor but swapped that for a 340, yellow paint and imitation graphics) Looked nearly identical to this, Marie did most of the work… (yeah, I’m proud of the wife) :blush:

… And bought a slightly used yellow 2017 Focus ST (Which is now our ‘family car’)

…And I drive a 2001 Ford F150, like this…

Nice rides in there ! The Duster s pretty nice. Love these mopars.

One can do lots of things with these half-ton pickups.

On my end I own a 6-speed manual SER Altima That Nissan only built for 2 years .

Edit: Can t get the pic to post, weird.

That Altima is a great car.
