Proud car owners,brag on your car

I have a car. I love cars. I'm not a slave to it by any means. I dont blame my problems on my car ownership. My car doesnt tell me what to do. I can afford to have a car.
I ride a bike. I own a car. I'm not evil.

Its 2.5 years old already, but still looks like new. It'll get replaced sometime this year. I need it for my work, and to transport my Surf-Ski (kayak).

I just bought a 04' Nissan Sentra.
The first car I ever owned under 67,000 miles and still has factory warranty. WooHoo!

Here's my "fun" car. It's a 1970 Porsche 914-6 with an '89 3.2 liter Carrera engine shoehorned in.

So its car posting time eh? Ok, well i don't have a car yet, but yesterday it was the 41st Victorian HotRod show here in Melbourne. I should make a thread, but couldn't be bothered uploading all the pictures. I think i took around 160 photos with my digital camera...lol. This car here pictured below has always been my favourite hotrod, as well as my dads and we wish one day we could sometime do one up which probably will never happen Anyway.....Its a 1923 T-Bucket. It would have been better if they had put a 454 in it and much wider wheels at the back, but this one had a Chev 350 4 bolt. But, the owners of it had the Jag XJ6 rear end which you defintaly gotta have on the T-Bucket. (I won't go crazy with the pictures by the way)

So does that mean you hate yourself for hating? Sorry couldn't resist that with your sig.

I got a crappy '94 Cavalier that I'm surprised hasn't fallen apart on me yet. Lookin' at gettin' a truck this year, maybe, before my car becomes completely unsafe.

My wife's got an '05 Nissan Quest. That thing's badass(for a minivan)! We got the DVD player, leather interior, premium stereo system, etc. I don't get to drive it much, but it's super-nice, especially compared to my car. Gas mileage kinda sucks, but it's better than most SUV's, thankfully, and my car kinda makes up for it.

I have a car, each of my two kids have a car. They seem to be proud of their cars. As long as their cars work I can go for a bike ride. Just let me go for a ride.

Some people have more money in their bike(s) than I do in this car. I guess I just love working on it, and working on it and working on it... Unless you have a big wallet (which I certainly don't), owning a car like this requires you to wrench on it occasionally. but I guess I'm lucky I have a garage to keep it in.
