I'll stick with my Infinity G35x 2005, I got it new last year as my first car out of college and with a real job. I love it, AWD + Turbo = fun.

I drive a 1995 Nissan Altima GXE. It's my first car, from my dad. I have since replaced the stock audio system to an Alpine head unit (w/mp3), Alpine amp, Boston Acoustics sub and speakers. Also added: spoiler/tint/alarm/fog lights/alloys. No engine mods.

boring, I know...

I drive a 2002 Ford Taurus, about the most ordinary car you can own... :)

My wife has a 2002 Ford Explorer V8 that we like much better, though it doesn't quite have the mileage...

I have been bit by "Mustang Fever" lately, so will probably get a Mustang GT (300BHP), if I can convice my wife that it is a practical buy. I just drove a friends 2003 Mustang Cobra (390BHP supercharged 4.6L V8), man is that a monster!!! I think my internal organs are still picking themselves up off the back of my ribcage...

Hey guys, long time... no see!

I just bought a new (to me) 2001 Toyota Corolla CE. (5spd, 1.8L DOHC w/ vvt-i)

I'll take some pictures later today and post them.

Jeez man, that looks pretty damn nice. How's it to drive?

Watch that rear end. ;)
It's pretty quick! The only handling issue is the tramlining that the 18" wheels cause, but otherwise I like it a lot. The rear end gets seriously slippery in the wet/when it's icy, certainly can't throw it around as much as you can a Golf!

Thanks, Danny!

I haven't heard from Andy in a while now either.


Well here are the pictures that I just took of the car. They're not very good because we are getting hammered pretty good right now by snow...

Don't you love those rims ? :D I am just going to use them as winter beaters, and will buy new rims in the spring.

Very nice, I don't think we have those over here. Although there is a similar looking model called the Avensis.

edit: just realised you said it was a Corolla - we have Corollas in Europe but they look different to yours, think they're smaller.


I wish it would snow here, I love driving in the snow :)
