[QUOTE=Ldesu;35097688]I'd rather have the old one, thank you[/QUOTE] It had to go for bad suspension issues. bad to the point where I can't drive it to texas, which I need to.

It's also a manual, while the old one was unfortunately an automatic.

[QUOTE=WolvesSoulZ;35099101]And it's what really counts! Riced out corolla freaks me out.[/QUOTE] If I had my choice there was an unmolested AE86 I wanted to turn into a sleeper, but I haven't got a garage and needed something reliable to travel in, so I went with this after I found out I couldn't afford the Lancer they had at the dealer. It's surprisingly springy and quick on it's feet for a commuter economy sedan. At first I felt a bit like a geometry teacher but it's really grown on me now.
It's fucking muddy behind my shop. [editline]11th March 2012[/editline] FUCK YOU RAPING MY MERGE [editline]11th March 2012[/editline] D:<
[QUOTE=Strider_07;35097659]out with the old, in with the new [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/AWJrz.jpg[/IMG] You know how much I love your Camry. Anti-Corolla. What's the Camry heading next?

It seemed like a fitting place for it, even when the dealer offered to take it in trade. (I couldn't bare to see my Camry go to the scrapper) Nonetheless, I love it too. It's been a faithful companion despite the bad suspension that bottoms out on speed bumps, the wibbly tie rods that make it pull to one side if you let go of the wheel, the wonky power steering at low speeds, the leaky head gasket it came with, the bad washer nozzles, the dents and scrapes and bad paint and the slow leak in the driver's tire immediately after I replaced them all.

Glad it's still in the family. If it were owned by the kinda person that see's a car as little more than a tool/appliance it would of hit the scrapper years ago. Here's hoping its got plenty more years ahead of it. Can't be long until it attracts the attention of enthusiasts anyway, surely? If it were in the UK, I guarantee you'd have people at your door and phone numbers left on notes under your wiper. Also, what's the mileage on it?
[QUOTE=TestECull;35092061]I haven't had power brakes for four years now. Man up brah, it isn't hard to stop a car with no booster, you should still be able to lock up/trigger your ABS with no vacuum assist at all. [/QUOTE] i could, but i don't think my car cares how manly i am on a daily basis
[QUOTE=edberg;35110150]i could, but i don't think my car cares how manly i am on a daily basis[/QUOTE] Being able to panic stop your car with no vacuum assist is a safety bonus. It has nothing to do with being 'manly'.
EUREKA! It took 4 hours with help from my brother but the stripes are on! I can't decide if it looks sporty or rediculous. Either way, I've always wanted a car with stripes.

[QUOTE=TestECull;35110235]Being able to panic stop your car with no vacuum assist is a safety bonus. It has nothing to do with being 'manly'.[/QUOTE] the assist is supposed to still work for a few brakings after the engines turned off, and good luck actually making that thing leak mid drive.
Not a fan of the stripes im afraid, looks like you've done a good job of applying them though.
You can't see scratches as easily on silver cars
And dust
[QUOTE=Milky;35111745]Not a fan of the stripes im afraid, looks like you've done a good job of applying them though.[/QUOTE] This. Very nicely done with applying them but it's the wrong car to put stripes on. Not many cars can pull it off, Hyundais I'm afraid, don't look right with them. Even the Coupes.
Thanks! We did it using the dry (one chance only) technique. It was very difficult, we practised with masking tape first then followed the tape lines with the vinyl. The roof was even more difficult. Yeah, I know it's not the car to put stripes on. But I'm not taking the whole image thing with this that seriously. I'm 19, I'm allowed to be stupid and stupid stripes on Mum's old Hyundai, it's not like I can afford to buy a car worthy of stripes at my age! Haha

It's funny actually, the motor that was originally in the CRX was put in the hatch, and the motor in the CRX was built using bits of the motor from the Civic. So I basically swapped motors out. :S
[QUOTE=Ldesu;35112626]That engine has barely even got its cherry popped[/QUOTE] The car's nearing the 50,000 mile birthday!
[QUOTE=bradley;35112779] approximately 500,000 miles between these two cars. [/QUOTE] Not bad at all. With a bit of care they'll have that each in due time. [QUOTE=Psygo;35111411]the assist is supposed to still work for a few brakings after the engines turned off, and good luck actually making that thing leak mid drive.[/QUOTE] You get one good panic stop on the reserve, plus two or three normal ones. Oh, and they do fail mid-drive. The booster in my dad's truck did exactly that, the diaphragm failed and A: made the power brakes not all that power, and it made the engine run like absolute ass. Since the massive vacuum leak in the brake booster made the engine run like ass, the power steering got a bit stiff at idle, and there was less vacuum to operate the already failed booster. Oh, and half the time you'd roll up to a light and it would die entirely if you didn't heel-and-toe it, this was worse when the engine was cold. Oh, and because of the leak, there was zero brake assist the moment the engine died as well. We fixed it by just cutting two inches off the hose, plugging one end, and mounting that cap on the manifold. The remainder of the hose was removed entirely. Fuck power brakes. We don't need 'em. I haven't had 'em for four years now on mine. Like I said, being able to safely control a car with 0 power assist is something everyone holding a license should be able to do. Oh, and my booster? Worked one day. Didn't work the next. No vacuum leak, no odd symptoms, it just worked one day, then the next time I went for a drive I didn't have power brakes. There was no reserve left and there's no vacuum leak. My dad and I suspect a slight leak in the master cylinder filled the booster with brake fluid to the point it no longer boosts, but doesn't interfere with manual brake application. I don't know. But I'm not in any hurry to replace it. I can still lock the tires up if I need to, so I can still safely stop without it.

[QUOTE=TestECull;35113574]Not bad at all. With a bit of care they'll have that each in due time.[/QUOTE] I drive the shit out of both of them. Neither of them had complete engines when I got them. :v:
I like your stripes, Dip. I get that it wasn't done to make it look totally bad ass, but to look more unique/personal. Plus it's a lot more modest than putting some tribal graphics down the side.
[QUOTE=bradley;35113711]I drive the shit out of both of them. Neither of them had complete engines when I got them. :v:[/QUOTE] Hahaha. I'm not afraid to put miles on mine too. Either of them break 300K yet?
