WTF is everyone driving in these dark times?!
« on: July 18, 2021, 05:52:23 AM »

Called my psychiatrist when I saw an email from RHMT thinking it was another episode.

Still out here in a desert trying to put food on the table and such. Cars get inspections annually and fail for tint that's dark or mods. Tuning scene here pretty much limited to cutting off cats on shitty 160hp tiny Nissan trucks and testing insha'allah while fucking with phones at high speeds.

Here I bought a used fully-equipped LS460L for a daily driver. Less than 100k miles, paid a little over $10k cash for it. Pretty sweet V8 Camry with leather.

At home my newest vehicle is a 2021 CBR1000RR-RR-RRRR-Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr SP Fireblade that's been paid for and sitting at the dealership since last fall. Will pick it up when I go on vacation for the first time in years, next month.

Always liked the RSX. Not familiar with those MBs but I was surprised how much I enjoy driving a luxo-barge around. Must be getting old...

2014 Model S.  Working on selling it to hopefully get a Model 3 Long Range AWD (3.8s 0-60).  Wife rocking a Model 3 has a long range RWD. 

I sold out a long time ago and had a kid.

Yeah. I've made a few offspring. Hence the "family friendly" luxobarge.

Am going to get an eCUV when I go back. Considering a Ferd Mach E. How many QA issues have you encountered with the Teslas? It's what's really turned me off, along with the Playskool interiors.

Both the S and 3 have been solid.  Only problems with the S is condensation gets stagnant in the evaporator and I have to clean it out every few months, oh and the eMMC failure which all 2013-2016 S, X have eventually.  Almost got a Mach E but couldn't justify the price compared to a 3 or Y with the huge exception being if you need service, Ford dealers are everywhere.  Right now I'm 3.5hrs from a Tesla dealer which sucks balls.

Everything now comes with "Autopilot 2" which is all you *need*,  A step up is Enhanced autopilot, which is all you really need and a bag of chips.  Full-self driving is just lazy.

Cool thanks. Tesla dealers aren't allowed in my state, so... The Fords are a bit overpriced right now, as a bunch of new cars are apparently. Will see how the car-climate is in a year or two when I move back to FreedomLand.

I still have my 2008 S2000 with ~45k miles on it, and the 1990 CRX Si that needs some TLC...

It's a 2021 Remedy 8, definitely a fat stack of hot pockets. My daughter has a 2021 Fuel EX. 
She just broke her wrist riding at Mammoth bike park with me.

I lived in the van for a year to save money for an early retirement plan, but then ended up with my dream job making decent money. So I moved back into an apt. Now I'm saving to buy a house.
I miss living in the van sometimes, but almost every weekend I'm living out of it on a road trip. 
My retirement plan is to have a house as a home base and travel the country in my van. Living places for a few months at a time. Either riding my mtb or snowboarding.

Picture is from a recent road trip to Bend, OR and her eating shit at Mammoth

I will have to make a build thread for this.  We basically ripped the 145hp off of it, and got the biggest engine we can legally hang off the front without making it experimental.  Fuel Injected 210hp at 2850rpm haha

No, she actually dusted herself off and rode back down to the van.
Then the adrenaline wore off.
