    Yeah man, my Elantra is the ****. Gets like 30 mph and is at over 100,000 without any major failures/expenses. Also, the back seat can fit both my bikes!

    Happy to hear it, my Tiburon is running steady and can fit two bikes as well.

    Yum, poor man's ferrari; no offense meant whatsoever, it's a common saying.

    I don't see many of these on the road anymore and lot in the backyards or driveways of people in a non - drivable state..... do they supposedly break down easily?

    I drive a 2001 Volvo XC70 and get 20 mpg if I'm lucky. That's something of a confession right there.

    Additional confession: I went through the trouble of boxing my bike up in order to take it to Baltimore via Megabus, and only ended up riding it for about four miles to go a used book store.

    None taken. I read in a Car and Driver or something of the like from back in the day that the handling was no better than a Civic... but was safer than a Volvo.
    I seem to see a lot of them in that state too. A little tear seems to make its way out.

    to add to the current theme:
    I drive my car WAY more than I ride my bike. However, that stands to reason as I spend way more money on car parts and I am a better driver than I am a cyclist. Something about setting off down an empty, winding mountain road at dawn or at dusk with the top down just strikes me as pure bliss.

    What should the new title of the thread be? From "confessions" to "Wallowing in Automobilage/Sin"?

    I sold my Subaru Legacy GT wagon last year and - except when I occasionally drive Angie's WRX - have been pretty much car-free ever since.

    I drive a gas guzzling SUV. I hate it, but free is the right price. It tends to sit in my 60 dollar a month parking spot for weeks at a time.

    Except last time I rode a road bike I hit an island in a parking lot because I couldn't figure out how to stop.
