How do you roll?
Any car fanatics out there? Just curious what people drive around here. Post some pics if ya got em.:D This is my current vehicle. It's a 2012 Scion XB release series. aka the toaster. These are all cell phone pics so bear with me. :rolleyes:
... Only 1 pic per post huh...:doh:
Here was my last car.. Fun little car it was, just not as practical as my toaster. It's a 2010 Mazdaspeed3. It's a 6 speed manual that put out 263hp and 280 ft pds of torque out of a turboed 4 cylinder. That's taken at my work parking lot..
Here is the 3 I had before the black one. Loved this car for the 5 years I owned it. It's a 2005 Mazda3
I too am a fan of little fun cars. I have owned a Fiero and Del Sol, but right now I am stuck in a Saab 9-5.
I also have a 1993 Yamaha FJ1200. It has more HP than many cars I've owned and only weighs ~600lbs wet. It is also air cooled and carbureted.

Up until July of last year, I have always owned a pickup. The last of which was a trusty '06 Toyota Tacoma. Great truck!
I traded it for a car, that people either love or hate. A very polarizing design...obviously, I love it! So far, my '12 Honda Crosstour has been most excellent!

Jimmiii, I've always liked the looks of those Fiero's. Sounds like your bike would be a lot of fun! I told the wife that I'm going to buy a bike and well, that didn't go too far. She says I'd probably kill myself. (probably right) :) I'm more interested in picking up a nice 4 wheeler one of these days.
Rob, That's a nice looking Honda you have there. Out of all the Hondas I'd want a white S2000.. mmm. I understand where you're coming from with the love or hate comment. My XB is the same way. When I brought it home my wife thought it was ugly. So did my brother. Heck, even my dad made fun of it. That's when I knew that I made the right decision. :)
I've always wanted a 96ish twin turbo Toyota Supra. Love those cars. Also have a thing for the Subaru WRX Sti. The previous gen, sedan version, with the rediculously large stock wing in royal blue with gold wheels. :)
CrueL sir up until a year ago had a 94 dodge shadow with a 2.5l 4 cylinder. Was able to get away with murder in that car, looked like a grandfather/grandmother's vehicle (rightfully so, was my grandfather's car), so no cop ever thought I was going as fast as I was. When he finally died (RIP Shadowfax) last year got a 2007 hyundai tuscon le v6. Wife and I are planning on starting a family soon, so one of us had to get a bigger car. She has a 2002 mercury cougar v6 coup, really only a two seater vehicle.
My brother used to have the Shadows twin. A Plymouth Duster.. thinking it was a 92. My cousin just sold her Tuscon not too long ago. She had a purple one, said it was a pretty nice suv. Hyundai has really stepped up their game in reliablity. I too decided to go bigger for the family. I originally was going to get an suv, but ended up coming home in my toaster. I just couldn't find an suv that I liked in my price range.

Quite lucky in some respects, my partner has an older Toyota Camry while I have a Mitsubishi lancer as a company car, and we share an Audi a4 b6 wagon
Then I have a little mk1 vw golf in bits in the garage that I am slowly restoring ( 3 years now) it's a slow process though
Ooooh, hot gossip!

I am thoroughly ashamed to say my DH drives one of these:
A blue Ford Fiesta. We call it the Smurfette. It is a total 'Chick Chariot', my DH is quite tall and muscular, so it is incongruous seeing him get out of it. Sigh, he just isn't into cars.
Me? well I drive one of these:
2004 Alfa Romeo 166
This isn't mine, just a photo I found online, but it's exactly the same.
