dont own a car ... soo...
Sweden: 53.8ppl/sq mi
US: 87.4ppl/sq mi
Lots of big cities of course, but even then it's not very developed (I was quite shocked when I was in the Detroit suburbs actually, not a single bus to be seen). As gas prices go up and oil gets rarer and more expensive it's quite stupid that each and every person has to have a car, and travel alone in it. It's the same problem here, but in most areas public transport is an option, and it does get better and better. Lots of people don't like it (me included) but €140 worth of gas (give it a few years and this will probably rise to €200) or €40 for bus tickets (my parents two way)? It should be a no brainer.
Other people have cars, like my wife.
a computer is more important for me then a car cus i only drive motorcycles
work from home... small town so i walk most places. day to day life there is no contest - but it's not like my computer can get me home to see family, etc so in reality both are necessary.
Yea I usta live close to you up in Watertown *Small community* and our apartments were in the middle of town so travel was not an issue.
Both are equally important I'd say.
I need a car to get places, take my kids places, go out on the town and so on. In the US, especially outside of a major metropolitan area, a car is a MUST. Otherwise it takes forever to get anywhere using public transportation.
As for a computer, well, I use it to make money, keep in contact with people, news, etc.etc. So a computer is a must have also, for me at least.
I would say Car for sure, my phone does everything my computer does, but gaming.
Go Jeep!!! What Jeep do you have?
We have 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland
Well, I do love building computers and polishing my rig but the emotions given by a sports car when driven on Italy hill's roads and mountain roads is hardly matched...
I can't choose though :|
I would actually at this point like to trade one or two of my rigs off for a truck, I need one bad!
Actually you can order Beer online.
I assume you work on a computer though, so that makes the money to buy the car that brings you to work that makes the money to buy the car that brings you to work that... somethingception.
work provides all the computer's i need to do my job though
The poll is just which is more important in your life, not whats supplied by who or home comp vs work comp. You need the car to get to the computer, you need the computer to make the money to buy the car. Just a loop.
23 people are from US
With my life right now its the car, gotta be able to take kids places and get around myself.
this. I have a car, its fine. I have two bikes, and I would give up computers for life to keep them.
I mean if I lived in my moms basement or I was 16 I guess id say computer
Car wins over computer
at first i was all about modding my car, but now i like to mod my computer lol
Depends on what Modifications you mean to a Vehicle:
Is it Engine Or is It Cosmetic
If You use your Car for A-B/ Daily Driver: aka Work, groceries, school, or Transport of Friends or even a Girlfriend I would leave it alone as you want reliability over performance- performance tends to lead to more maintenance and costs overall when they do break- and Yes anything built for performance will break more often than reliability.
If You go Cosmetic Route- Never Cut the existing wires in the vehicle whether it's new headlights/ tailights or general lighting. or even stereo as you can cause issues with the electrical system thus preventing vehicle from starting right, battery drains/alternator burns up, power windows, power locks, security system works intermittently.
Only time id change a stereo in a vehicle is when the factory unit doesnt work right or is completely failing- but i would never cut into existing wires- either id use adapters or run my own wires.
What Im saying above is if it is working properly within factory specification dont fix it or try to modify/tune/tweak it.
Cars are a representation of Freedom- They Allow You to get to work and support yourself even a girlfriend, heck even just having a car would allow you to entertain friends and women as of transport to fun even travel even if that fun is free. Those who really dont have a means of transport as of a car or motorcycle normally have trouble keeping a Woman Around or it takes longer for them to get where they need to go because public transport although faster than foot tends to take time because of route schedules.
In All Honesty Modding a car and a computer cost money- Id suggest just saving money
Smart move would be to Get another Car and Make it into a Toy/Weekend driver- aka rarely used or to entertain people/women on days off
^yep, i own an rx8, and it is now my weekend car, i modded myself...then i got a 94 tercel as my daily driver, saves me gas, and i dont have to worry about putting miles on my rx8. all the money i save on gas and not modding allows me to save up and put that money towards other things.
I would take the Car over a PC, cable, phone, girlfriend.
Rear ended a parked car 6 days after getting my license, so not a very good first car experience for me. I'll stick to computers for now.
Ya, Definitely Keep the Tercel as Factory as Possible
RX 8 You can up the performance in engine, trans, suspension, handling, brakes incrementally
just remember the bigger wheels and low profile tires are not really meant for daily road conditions, they requires more power to turn, bigger brakes to stop, and plus cause handling differences you may not like, tires are more prone to air loss from bumps and other debris found on the road.
