You know, Conker, you might have a shit car but I'm jelly of that 3100. They're really a garbage engine but I still love how they sound. I really wouldn't mind having a Beretta or Corsica.
I've been driving upwards of 4 years and still find it one of if not the most enjoyable thing to do to this date.
[QUOTE=Adamhully;34378917]I've been driving alone for about 7 months now and i still find it fun. Even with a 1.0L engine.[/QUOTE] What do you drive? [editline]24th January 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=Astronaut491;34377984]Alright, so I ended up going for a 3 hour drive around my city with some friends. We went through McDonald's drive-thru twice haha, it was epic. Driving is fucking awesome, so happy to have my license. [editline]24th January 2012[/editline] Thank you! No P plates, only thing mother said not to do was use my mobile whilst driving which I'm not gonna do. [editline]24th January 2012[/editline] Thank you!

Just remember to be super careful. If you find yourself questioning whether or not you can make lights/junctions etc don't do it! and bare in kind like 9/10 new drivers hit something. The luck comes in hiting things that don't claim on your insurance, in my case, reversing into a lampost and the neighbours fence. Haha Happy driving!

I never really got bored of it cause my car was fun to drive especially when all these honda fags who only have a fart cannon and 20 stickers on and try to race every single car they see.
Driving is the most fun thing in my opinion, even after thousands and thousands of kilometers, I still love it, and for me, it is the greatest stress reliever. Even with my slowpoke N/A 3800.

I want driving to be fun but my vehicle does not suit me at all. I don't use the bed very often so I'm not justifying the mileage. Because I have nothing in the bed, it gets hardly any traction. Because it's a 4 Cylinder truck, it's extremely slow to speed up, and it's an automatic and I tried learning manual and 2 hours flew by so fast I didn't even notice. Now I want a manual car that can actually go. :C Not sure what I want though...

[QUOTE=Concur;34379657]pass some grandma SWARM OF ANGRY BEES UNDER THE HOOD[/QUOTE] Angry bees? You're obviously doing it wrong [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zfgPn-NOfr0[/media]
but that's exhaust note not engine note
ಠ_ಠ You not taking care of your engine and it sounding like it's falling apart does not mean they all sound like that. Fix your shit. Do a valve adjustment, if it sounds like a bunch of bees then you've got way too much play. Probably happened when you ran it out of oil.
i dont mean it exactly like that 2 other br/o/s said their 3100's sound like "an angry swarm of bees" so thats what i say
Is it just me or is driving other people's cars funner than driving your own? It's just more exciting

volvo
[url]http://miami.craigslist.org/mdc/cto/2806656818.html[/url] Always wanted a cop car, I'd love to freak out all the sketchballs around town.
They're piss-ass-fuck easy to work on, too. I should know, that's all I've been doing every single day for the past month. I work as a mechanic for ABQ Cab, and as you may or may not know, Crown Vics and Shuttle Vans are the only things they run. And we have like, 30 of the vics alone.
They sell a bunch of those here at auction and all of the sketchballs buy them ironically. And hey, [url=http://albuquerque.craigslist.org/cto/2785700850.html]this one[/url] is cheaper and on 24 inchz rimz yo.
They're all retired interceptors, as well. Meaning they are all tuned up with the interceptor packages and everything.
I would love one. But It would have to be ether State Trooper paint scheme or solid black. Thin Illegal light's for funnies.
[QUOTE=Concur;34379022] of course i have murrica strong 3.1 liter v6 been driving since july of 2011[/QUOTE] uhh right. my V8 5L is enough for me. I would love a v6.
Driving became exponentially more fun when i got a 1.7l 5 speed manual coupe, instead of an automatic 5.9l v8 suv.
[QUOTE=Dylan_94;34383664]Driving became exponentially more fun when i got a 1.7l 5 speed manual coupe, instead of an automatic 5.9l v8 suv.[/QUOTE] Hence why I want to dump this automatic 4cyl truck for some reliable good on gas manual. I don't use the bed (So no traction either), the gas is terrible and it's slow as fck. I mean, it's [b]MY[/b] truck but I realize I'll fall in love with any car that I like, so eh.
Exactly. I loved the Durango, but only because it was treated as MY vehicle. But now i love my honda.
The fact that I don't have to stand in the freezing cold waiting on a bus to go places is worth it for insurance and fuel costs.

I go to two Sixth Forms and at one point everyone at both just drove Corsa's! Until someone inherited Grandads old Skoda that is :P I'm always surprised when I see one that clearly isn't a first car!
I agree, if i was older with a well paid job and quite a lot of NCB, then a Corsa wouldn't be in my top ten cars i'd buy if i'm honest. Good car though.
