Post by: Stonecolddano on May 11, 2012, 07:12:00 pm
Since it took so long on the last game...I done lost interest in muscle cars and bought myself a Jeep.

Anyone else have this problem?  Let's discuss...

MP81 aka Kyle bought a chevy cobalt and has since a done number of upgrade to it such as a super charger. Yes I'm talking about the 4cyl car. Other news my dad I have finally started working on out 70' coronet R/T. My Dad is still deciding on some heads but, other wise we have amassed some parts already and have reassembled the bottom end on the block. After sitting for so many years the grease on the then freshly assembled block hardened in to a wax like consistency.

I'm rambling and no one probably gives a crap so I'll kindly STFU and give some one else a chance to speak.

I remember my first car, it was a small Fiat Seicento.

The first time it was called in for a vehicle inspection, the mechanic was surprised to see a Seicento with extra lights added, but he agreed with me that it looked pretty cool.

After that I've had a renualt and most recently a 14 year old 2,0 pegeout (of course with extra lights).

I switched from cheap plastic incased extra lights to cheap metal incased extra lights on the peugeot.

My mom's '92 Accord has yet to let me down. Now, if only I could convince my dad that I'm not as reckless as he thinks I am...

Nothing spectacular, but extremely reliable, still running with the original 6 194 cu.in and column shifter.

Gas mileage is also quite decent even for European standards :)

So decent is like 10 kilometers per liter? :)

I get around 16 km/l with my 2,0 liter engine.

A note to anyone looking into the '05 Acura TL: If you hate twitchy brakes and a hefty feel, don't buy it.

Twitchy?
0-0.25 inch press: No brakes.
0.5 inch press: Strong braking (will dismount any loose stuff on the back seats)
0.75 inch press: SCREEEEEEEEEEECH!!!

Lol yeah, it's why I prefer my mom's '92 Accord.
0-2 inch press: No brakes.
2-3 inch press: Little bit of braking.
3-4 inch press: Strong braking (see earlier)
4-6 inch press: YOU WILL STOP, no questions asked.
6-7 inch press: SCREEEEEECH!!!!
But then again, there's something wrong with the brake rotors, so there you go. As for gas, just subtract about an inch from each distance. Also, the thing has next to no power steering (already checked fluid, don't bother suggesting), so you have to give it at least a 10-degree rotation before anything significant happens with the wheels, plus you have to turn it about 100 degrees (just over a right angle) to do a right-hand turn at a 4-way intersection.

We've got an 88 fiat 126, a 97 E36 Touring, and a Clio. I also spend most days surrounded by classics and landrovers.
