Ohhhh man I love working at a store that is right next to Interstate 20. I get to see hot car's all day long, and get to talk to there owner's wile getting payed. :v:
Like this 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI
Just like post pic's of car's you saw and think are da shit.
We took this in on trade the other day, I took it for a spin.
Stuck behind the Merc SLS 6.3 AMG a couple of days ago.
For you Americans, this was a relativley traffic-free journey.
You don't see anything like that outside of our cities does driving in Britain suck that much?
Like that in most mid-sized towns or anything larger. It was 5:30PM to be fair so rush hour.
These were at the ALMS race in Baltimore:
and these are all just things I've seen out and about:
Why... a shark on a PT Cruzer. Just why, It's the worst car ever.
[QUOTE=DPKiller;32305258]Why... a shark on a PT Cruzer. Just why, It's the worst car ever.[/QUOTE]
It was in the hopes that SharkCar would fall apart if it ever got too aggressive. Like a fail-safe.
Lots of [I]car's you saw[/I] in this thread
I love the Isetta!
And this old SAAB that i dont really know anything about.
Well ain't those images just fancy?
wat, why is the isetta using beetle sun cap and headlight eyelids?
Car show on evey last thursday in the parking lot were I work, damn I love getting payed to stair at car's.
Stupid Phone took shitty pic. And shitty camera man not getting closer to the action. :>
and again with the [I]car's[/I]
i think my dad's friend had an isetta when he was younger :v:
Obviously this isn't my picture, but I did see one of these. (and less than three minutes later, a Bentley) Made my week. It wasn't at a car show or anything either- it was just cruising around the streets of Pittsburgh. I got lucky that day, considering that was the only time I've been to Pittsburgh.
(just in case: this is a Reventon, not an Aventador.)
Saw this for the first time yesterday at the lambo dealership by my house. I like the merci SV better, but its still a badass car. There was tis aventador and a merci sv behind it both in a cool semi gloss silver color that looked cool. Was 6 gallardos there too
I'd have to say, the Aventador is my favorite Lamborghini. Generally speaking though, i'm more into ferraris' cars.
I've yet to see any Lambo outside of a dealership besides the Gallardo. Makes me feel bad, as I don't like Gallardos at all compared to their other models.
An R34 gtr vspec II that lives in my cul-de-sac, the guy warms it up for ages every time he takes it out (which isn't often)
Are those more common in Europe than the US? I've only ever seen one in person here on the East coast of the US.
I thought R34's werent allowed in the us
Depends on the state, I guess? I know that in some provinces in Canada RHD cars are illegal now, unless you imported them before they came up with that law.
Couple other nice cars I've seen

For there only being 350 LP-670's. I sure do seem to see and hear about them a lot. I mean there's even a video of one driving through mud.
I was also convinced that all 350 were sold. Why is there one still in a dealership????
And this old SAAB that i dont really know anything about.

Sorta looks like on of those two stroke saabs, a bit older tough.

RHD is perfectly legal everywhere. [i]Imported cars[/i] are a different story, mostly because if the car was made [i]after[/i] the requirement of the laminated glass for front windscreens, and came from a place without it (Japan/UK), then you will not be able to register the car as it will fail inspection due to the front windscreen. That, among other safety requirements that the US has and foreign countries don't, is why it is hard to import and drive a car here. Right-hand drive has nothing to do with it, really. If RHD was illegal, postal services wouldn't be having Chrysler build those wranglers they drive in some areas (New RHD wranglers, just like the LHD version but converted [i]by Jeep[/i] for the postal service).
The hard part is the glass, airbag regulations, safety equipment, tires will have to comply with US DOT, it's just a big mess of having to retrofit safety shit into a car that either didn't come with it or doesn't have it readily available.
Say someone wanted to import a JDM RHD CRX SiR, the glasstop one. Well, you'd have to change the windshield out for a USDM windshield, the bumpers (the actualy bumper, not the skin) for USDM bumpers (correct impact rating), among other miscellaneous things.
I see. I know someone who owns a BNR32 in Quebec and he just said that it's illegal to drive RHD cars there if they were imported after a certain date, didn't know how it works for the US.
It's pretty easy to make imported RHD cars legal here, it just costs a lot of money. About $2k average for a RHD import, a lot less obviously if there is a LHD version of the car.
If you can afford to import an R34 then I'm sure you can afford the 2k to make it legal.
Obviously. It just sucks when you're trying to get a cheap car from Japan.
Importing to Germany from outside the EU costs quite a lot.
For example, if a car costs about €7.000 in Japan, you'll end up with about €12.000-€14.000 before it's fully legal, registrated etc. And over €2.000 of that is just taxes and customs... my ass.
