    I still haven't got the hang of the overall average age of you lot - but I guess some of you must be legal - TO DRIVE!

    So what do you drive?

    I have two cars right now - a 1971 Mini 1275 GT, and a 1969 Domino Kit car which I'm rebuilding (hopefully ready for the summer - if we get a summer this year).

    And before you start flipping out because you think I'm loaded - I aint. Both were cheap and are cheap to insure.

    I bet some of you crazy Americans have some sporty cars, and you cruise around the... mall? Looking for 'chicks'?

    Least, that's what you do in movies. Life is like the movies, right?

    I heard that there's this one brand of car in America, called 'Oldsmobile'.

    Oldsmobile!?

    Which genius thought that up? Sounds like they make cars powered by steam, with a crank handle at the front for starting up! [​IMG]

    So what do you have? Or rent? Or... borrow from your parents?

    You want a cooper, eh gamermole? You'd better start saving up!

    Most people just buy a standard Mini and make it look like a cooper.

    And here's a Mini link for you, nintendofreak - That Honda has a V-TEC engine, does it? Well, a (currently) popular Mini engine swap is to replace the trusty A-series with a V-TEC!

    So we have something in common. Sort of. Well... not really.

    Ohhhhhh yeah, Vtec ftw [​IMG]

    Didnt know they were common to swap. yet again mini's are quite uncommon around here, Honda's are EXTREMELY common, with about 2/5 with Vtec engines. (estimate [​IMG] )

    I drive a 1992 Nissan Pathfinder SE and the old lady drives a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder SE. I guess we like Japanese cars at the moment, but in the past, I've owned Hyundai Pony, Honda CRX, Honda CIVIC, VW GTI 16V, VW Cabriolet...

    I'd like to get a Mini or BMW convertible for myself, but if I get another kid, its going to be a minivan!

    I hate being a newbie driver where insurance is skyhigh for me but I still managed to buy my first car. A Nissan Almera. It just gets me around.

    Tell me about it!! Its about $200 (100 GBP) per month for insurance! It really sucks being 18 years old, being MALE, living in Los Angeles (LOTS of traffic) and having your licence for less than a year!

    Luckly I don't pay [​IMG]
