Someone mind doing a half ass black out in the rims for my truck in photoshop? [quote] [IMG]http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u423/Lawblind/366a133c.jpg[/IMG] [/quote] And maybe a shiny kind of look.

[video][video=youtube;VmSSluUG5Qc]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VmSSluUG5Qc&feature=fvwp[/video] I think this is the same car .. god how i love the yelling and roaring of that car It makes me horny
I always hate you then i get a bro boner because you love cobra's
Drove a New Beetle today, it was lime green and owned by a girl around my age iirc. Despite it smelling of... cooties, I did rather like it... It was surprising. And you know, if I was to own a car just to drive, I would definitely consider one.
My girlfriend has a beetle that I drive frequently. It's not a bad car but I hate the transmission and the auto roll up windows do weird shit all the time. The sound system is pretty impressive for a stock car IMO. It has a lot of range.
God, that was one thing. This had manual crank windows, which I am used to (almost everything I've ever owned has had manual windows), but this one... It was a workout rolling it up. God. Something had to be wrong with it I'm sure. But yeah, if the New Beetle was rear engine or mid engine, it would have been a hella sweet ride. Oh well.
Hmm, my car seems to like creating new problems everytime i find a solution for an existing problem. Now driving home from work i noticed my clutch feels different. Before there was just the main biting point which was when the pedal was about half way released. Now i feel the car being pulled forward after releasing the clutch up by about half an inch. Then it stays the same until i reach the main biting point where it usually is at half way. And also when driving in a straight line i noticed my steering wheel is turned left a little (By about 20 degrees). If i straighten it so its aligned with the dash the car starts turning right. Uuuuurrrggghhhhaaaaa.

that's normal, my Civic and CRX both take 5 turns. The problem with the beetle was that it was insanely difficult to turn the handle, not the number of rotations.

New one's expensive, classic is obnoxious. I love old beetles but would not buy one "as a boring DD".
[QUOTE=Ldesu;34605587]:| how about just getting a classic one? or the new one that is much more masculine?[/QUOTE] I'm not sure what it is. I know they're quite popular in Europe and stuff, but most people seem to own them here just for the novelty. (The Old Beetle)

[QUOTE=bradley;34599331]I've run open header on a lot of things. My TE72, my Civic, my CRX, my old chebby racecar, my fucking lawn tractor what do you even want to know about it? It's loud and obnoxious. That's all you need to know.[/QUOTE] When they say open headers, does that meant there is absolutely no exhaust system, no manifolds, no pipes, nothing? [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6YOSTn3GnVI&feature=related[/media] its so retardedly loud and awesome i love it
Shit I'm 20 minutes early :v:

The header being the manifold, although "header" usually refers to a steel or ceramic tube header style manifold.
Guy comes to look at my truck, doesn't even start it up. Tells me "This truck is clearly overpriced. I saw one for $2000 on Craigslist posted yesterday but it was already sold by the time I emailed the guy" Left without even starting the engine. I checked UsedVictoria and Craigslist and a truck with similar mileage and condition is $4000, I'm asking $3000. Ass. He didn't even make an offer either.

I like my summer rims, but damn.. they have been a bit beaten.. [img]http://img41.imageshack.us/img41/2237/39865729758352481471629.jpg[/img] [img]http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/2535/39408629758364081761629.jpg[/img]
I think you need wider tires.
But then it cant be hellaflush or whatever fad kids care about these days.
I like hellaflush. I's a good look. I just don' like camber out the ass, especially on FF layout.
I think hellaflush is disgusting. But thats just because Im interested in automotive performance. I guess if you want to limp around town slowly then its pretty [I]neat.[/I]

So today me and some friends wanted to go out into the field by my house, which stretches for miles into the woods with rutty, dirt trails and cool ass abandoned houses and old-ass machinery. Problem is, they all drive cars. I am the only one with a truck. Turns out I can offroad pretty nice in a 2wd lowrider truck :v: I even drove through some big ass puddles!

It's easy to believe you can offroad until your low clearance means you rip something off on a big rock. Still, I wouldn't mind taking my little S10 out to a trail either and rip around a bit.

I ain't that dumb :v: if i see a rock im stoppin'.

Also, the people that disagreed with my post either look like they are denying my free will or disagreeing about the camber bit, haha. FINE FINE, EXCESSIVE CAMBER IS COOL, OKAY MGEAR?
