While the Civic is the apitimy of rice, it REALLY does a great job as a daily driver, I know because most of my driving time is spent behind the wheel of my mums 2001 Civic hatch

Nah, a Porsche 968 makes a good daily driver. A civic makes a good... a good... I'll get back to you.

i love cars period
but there are a few that ruffle my feathers

any japanese car thats not stock or try's to look fast
(other than the supra & the 3kgt)

the aztek (whos idea was that?)
the pt cruiser (0-60 when?)

Anything ford
because they are slow and very very
unreliable (the gt-40 does look killer though)

Esp. MUSTANGS & THE ESCAPE
:finger:

Slow and unreliable? Where do these come from? My mustang's fine at 35k miles, not a single prob to date...hopefully, luck will continue. And mine's fast, so...Maybe we shouldn't count mine, though, since it has too much invested.

Ho ho, they're made by Kia and sold under the Ford name. I.E. Ford Expire. A whopping 67 hp baby!! And no damn tachometer. How are you supposed to know when to shift when the engine sounds like bees at 1,000 rpm???

Banchi, don't say bad things about Fords while you drive a Plymouth. I have a Ford 400 windsor smallblock. This is the most powerful small block I have ever seen.

It has a Edelbrock 750 carb, DIY port and polish, and a high lift cam.

This motor makes 450hp, and has been doing so for 150,000 miles without a hiccup.

Like the Geo Metro, and the Dodge Colt?

Ford doesn't have a monopoly on shitty econoboxes!

I love the name! My 400 Windsor SB is the most powerful stock SB I have ever seen. With the smog ripped off of course. Don't talk smack about Ford, plymouth boy


The PT Cruiser. What the hell were they thinking?

The Prowler. The near beer of hotrods. It looks like a hotrod, they promote it like a hotrod. It goes like an economy car!

The Trabant. I don't need to say any more about the Trabant

Any Lada. There are Russian cars which are not shit. This is not one of them

Renault LeCar. Sweet Jesus! I don't think it's possible to make a smaller car!

The Messerschmidt. Okay, so it is possible to make a smaller car! How did the company that made the best fighters in the world degrade itself to this? Damned the allies, and their humiliating impositions

Pontiac Aztek. The only thing worse than the fact that they made these cars is the fact that people bought them! People walked into a showroom and said "I want to drive THAT home!"

Any car that someone will refer to as a "bad ass awesomobile." what the sweet fuck.

Sorry about my language, I just couldn't convey my disgust and hatred without profanity

I'm probably going to date myself here. Anyone remember the Renault Le-Car? I wouldn't give that piece of crap to my worst enemy. The AMC Pacer ranks a close second. Any Chrysler product that has the word "K-Car" in it sucks too. Also any inport with a coffee can exhaust! lol

Yeah, but at least the Pacer was RWD and available with a 4+ liter engine...

Of course, I could never hate any car as much as the Trabant. I really loath those cars.
