    considering we are on a site about robots that change into vehicles, what do you drive? I've seen what a few of the user's cars are here, but let's get a full thread going. Stock or modified cars are welcome. :) 
    I'll start:
    1990 Mazda Miata, 120,000 miles.
    15x7 Kazera KZ-M Wheels fitted with Falken Azeni RT-615 tires
    KYB adjustable shocks
    Flyin Miata Springs
    Racing Brake Slotted rotors
    Porterfield carbon ceramic brake pads
    racing beat mid and rear subframe braces
    Momo Steering wheel
    Simpson Design short shifter
    Flyin miata full exhaust
    Racing Beat exhaust manifold
    Racing Beat Intake
    Hope to get a flying miata turbo kit in the future. needs some bodywork(dings from soccer mom vans parking too close, clearcoat's starting to peel) and some technical work.(master brake cylinder has sprung a leak.)
    Very fun car. it's small and lightweight at about 2500 lbs,Rear Wheel Drive, and has a perfect 50/50 weight distribution. I take it autocrossing, and it handles very well. I've beaten some cars at the track with much higher power than me by a few seconds with this setup.
    the only thing that sucks is the battery. It freezes in the winter :( 
    and some pics:

    I'm never sure about Miatas.

    Is it a girl's car? Or is so feminine that when a man drives it, it's actually absurdly manly?

    I just don't know!



    Oh, and I can't drive. :(

    I don't have a car as one in central London would be pointless.
    So I just use the bus/tube and walk.

    2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport -- which I refer to as Wildfrost.

    I used to have my Jeep in a sig that Poho created for me, but that was long before I knew how to create my own sigs using Photoshop, so...

    No, I know how. But the state of Georgia and I had a disagreement (well, six) about whether or not Open Container laws were legal.

    It turns out they are. :(

    Over the last few years. It just culminated recently.

    I was totally legal for BotCon, though.
