    I did not see any one of these, so i'm making one now.

    Just as the title says: Post a pic of your CAR.

    Rules:

    1 - Must be "YOUR" car, not your dad's, mom's, friends or whatever.

    2 - Must be you current car, not the car you used to have or the one you plan on buying.

    3 - Do not post a "Wish you had this car" pic. Go make your own post if you want that.

    4 - Lets keep the size of the pictures SMALL. Less than 600X400 but more than 300X200 at least.

    5 - Try to get a decent picture. No night shots and no after crash pics too.

    6 - Make sure your license plate is unreadable. So the FBI cannot track you down ;)

    7 - A small intro to accompany your picture is not required but recommended.



    So to start this thread, here's mine:

    [​IMG]

    It's a 2002 Ford Focus Station Wagon. My previous car (Escort) was also station wagon too. It's roomy, has nice features (like cruise control) and it's not too bad on gas. I love the rear cargo space. It's perfect for hauling any stuff and great on long trips. I had the windows tinted this summer so it looks "Darker" now. I got it used and i'm still paying for it right now (1.8 years to go). Apart from the busted thermostat housing (crap plastic) last week, i did not have any real problems with this car. Great overall! :rockout:

    It's not an actual image because my car is covered in snow, but this is exactly what my car looks like. Yeah, it's an old man car, but it's still nice and only has 100,000 miles on it

    Mine is identical but with a slight dent in the bumper, great for taking curves way too fast due to the lowness.
    33,000 miles on it, new plugs, filters, everything.

    I finally got around to uploading some pictures of my 1993 2+2 300zx. (215 hp 19 mpg)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It's getting back from a 3-month major overhaul this week. I'd say that I've spent more money on it than I did buying the car initially. I'm also going to repaint the front bumper and re-dye all of the trim pieces before doing a complete photo-shoot. I'll make sure to update everyone here once I get her back.

    The funny thing is that I would rather be driving this car than a new Jaguar.

    Btw, with this new drive shaft, I could probably take on an 03 Mustang.

    Your right about that, lol.

    Its got dual exhaust, chip, CAI, 112k miles, and what i think is a leaking head gasket. :roll:

    I'm actually saving for something like a 96-98 cobra, or 2002ish GT

    Bought the wife a highlander. Like this one, we ahve been shopping all day and no, I won't go take a pic.

    [​IMG]

    The pic of the celi is really my car.
    Currently the engine/transmission is out of the celi, waiting to go down for machine work and rebuild.


    My work beater, just like this but with BBS 16" mag alloy rims.
    [​IMG]

    My truck looks like this but with the steel painted rims and 34" tires. Plus much meaner since I took and bumped the front of it and ripped of some paint and my headlight trim.

    Here's my Trailblazer right before I drive it off the lot a little over a year ago. Looks pretty much the same except it's now wearing Firestone Destination LE tires. Real sexy with the raised white lettering; a whole lot better than the stock shoes it was wearing.:rockout:

    Well there is always shipping... or a road trip. I drove from San Antonio to here when we moved... I could have done it in 2 days, but the wife and her father wanted to do it in 3 so as to not be on the road ALLLLLL day. It's got like 5k in modifications, complete exhaust (JBA headers, magnaflow x-pipe, flowmaster delta flow 40 series mufflers), 3.73 frpp gears, 2003 cobra #4 crossmember for IRS, polyurethane bushings for the IRS, Eibach springs, Koni adjustable shocks, CAI, computer tune, short throw shifter, aftermarket hood, one heat range colder spark plugs, and a JL Audio 10w7 with a 500 watt monoblock amp. I know I'm forget some things. 325 hp 322 tq (at the wheels, dyno proven)
