Super clean! Car looks wicked. Gonna need to make this my pc wallpaper.
Yes, bright colored sports cars always bring attention but that's the nature of the game. You're dad fully expected it haha.It's my fathers weekend toy, but he has been DDing it a bit while the weather is nice.
The annoying thing is that the car brings a lot of unwanted attention - last week some guy followed my dad to work lol. The other day some guy in a Tesla Model 3 pulled up and floored it - I legitimately thought the guy was gonna wreck as there was so much tire squeal. I thought the guy completely lost traction lol.
Holy shit those are amazing shots. Helps that your car looks awesome!
Thanks! Really Impressed with the shots I got.
The pictures make it look so much better, seriously thinking about getting a print to hang on the wall. When I got the download link I was blown away.
I actually pulled out my old Nikon D3300 and I'm going to start to put some effort into learning.
Have you been inside one? I test drove them maybe ten years ago, so my info is outdated, but I was surprised at how cheap and plasticky a Jeep interior was constructed. Was expecting something a bit tougher given the brand reputation. I had last driven an 1980s Jeep and probably had canonized my memory of them along these lines:There is literally no reason for me to own a truck, but I'm about to pull the trigger on a Rubicon Gladiator. but I literally just got out of my negative equity on a my current vehicle, and would want to keep it alongside the Gladiator. I see so many people stomping on it, but I can't help but a drool a little every time I see one. (which hasn't been very often yet)
I have! Jeeps have been on my radar for a while, and a good buddy of mine just got a (base) 2019 Wrangler. Definitely get what you mean about the plastic look - and it isn't limited to the interior either, I find some of the exterior trimming to have a slightly off-putting cheap texture to it, too. That being said, I've kind of just come to terms with that being a part of the Jeep Chaaarm. Another major snag for me is that I find it rather uncomfortable to drive manual in Jeeps (Wrangler/Gladiator) and the clutch is not very responsive. I've never owned a Chrysler, but I've been told that's common for them.Have you been inside one?

Someone in my neighborhood has it. It looks good in Orange, but it looks good from afar in Orange. I don't know if it will continue to look good every day in my driveway or if I would look good in it, if that makes any sense.
yeah i still love driving it but between only really being able to drive it for 4-5 months a year, the rotary tax that comes with every repair, maintenance, part replacement, etc, and the realization I had more fun actively building the car up to its current level than just owning it in its current state I think I'm about ready to let it go - the freedom that comes with having something easy and cheap to drive/maintain while still keeping the fun that comes with driving sounds much more appealing and a miata ticks all those boxes.Someone in my neighborhood has it.

The Ceramic metallic is the best looking color on the ND i think, followed closely by the Soul Red and Machine Grey (with cherry top if soft top). I got Soul Red / black interior because University of Georgia GO DAWGS but if it weren't for that, i'd have gone with the Ceramic.
Anyways you should totally do it if you want to get rid of the rx-7. "get rid of the RX-7" hurts me to type and I don't even own it, but i'm sure throwing tons of money at it to keep it on the road is probably annoying as fuck.
got any more details? Price/vehicle/purpose? That looks like average 10yo car rust for my area so by itself not necessarily a deal breaker but if it's being offered as a clean car with a higher price not worth
2004 Tacoma $6800
I own a 2018 Si and I've been around the Type-R a lot as I know someone who has one.
For me switching was pretty easy. Though I've driven RHD cars before, just not on the other side of the street. You just have to be thinking about it and it won't be a problem.
Gonna check out Daikoku/Tatsumi PA and maybe some shops as well?
These pics have me even more excited :DFor me switching was pretty easy. Though I've driven RHD cars before, just not on the other side of the street. You just have to be thinking about it and it won't be a problem.
Also, the Mazda plant tour is pretty neat. I went in 2012 for a school trip, and I'm pretty sure I was the only one that was excited for it since no one else really cared about cars. They didn't let me take pictures in the actual assembly building or around the campus, just in the museum area.
Here's my pictures if you're interested. I'm sure it will be different when you go due to it being 7 years later. I mean, when I went they were still making the RX-8.
Honestly probably just Spoon Type One in terms of tourism. I already feel like I'm doing a lot and don't want to test my wife's patience on what's supposed to e our honeymoon lol.
Yeah, I bought it to daily drive, it makes the commute more fun. It’s a 2010 Carrera S with only 24k miles. Manual transmission.
Hello all! I currently have a 2016 ND Miata, which I bought new in April of 2017. I'll finish my payment soon. It's the car I daily drive everyday during the summer, but I'll soon have to transfert to my other car for daily driving during the winter. The other car is nothing special. It's an old Lexus. One of the reason I bought it is that since the ND is rather noisy, I wanted the complete opposite my second car. Something very calm and stressless. Anyway, I'm starting to eyeball my future purchase. I'm planning to start shopping as soon as I'm done paying for the ND, which at that point I also intend to sell the old Lexus. From what I gathered, my current choices would stop on 2 cars, 2 cars that really are one and the same, but not really. lol
I'm talking about the Stinger GT GT2 and the G70 Sport. Me and my girlfriend currently do not have any kid, so the additional space of the Stinger GT wouldn't be of much utility. On the other hand, the fast back hatch on the Stinger GT appears to be very useful. It definitely offers more space than the G70. That said, the G70 seems to offer a more premium interior, slightly better performance / handling. I really enjoy the look of both cars. On one hand, I prefer the front of the Stinger GT, but on the other hand I really do prefer the back of the G70. It's really a toss up for me. I plan to purchase anyone of them used. On one hand, the Stinger GT, where I live, is a bit more cheaper in the used market. On the other hand, the 5 years free maintenance of the G70 really is something I'd like to have.
I'm really torn between these two. I've tested much more recent Lexus while servicing my old one, and while I enjoyed them, they cost more to buy but also to maintain and truth be told, I feel like Toyota needs to add a bit more pep on their is350 / gs350.
I'm seeking comfort first and foremost then great acceleration/handling and finally great technology. My understanding is that both of them are neck and neck on any of these categories.
