Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 100k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

26 minutes ago, Drak3 said:

Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

Reminds me or Moog's Wasaabi 3000 from mighty car mods

I originally named the car Wasaabi after his car, decided to be original and name it Saabotage

I wanted to go to this sooooo badly, only an hour and a half away from me. But I had family stuff to do I couldn't get out of. Need to go to one of their meets someday somehow

I love mine so much already, and it's bone stock with 112K on the engine (163K on the chassis, original engine was pulled and swapped when the OG owner had the car, not sure why but I have paperwork to document it.) So it'll run for a nice long while as well as long as I take as great of care as everyone that's owned it before me. I have full service records for the car. But I really want to do all of the maintenance I can before I do anything, new brakes, steel lines, fuel filter, pump, spark plugs, wires, do a really good coolant flush, and want to get my A/C issue figured out, it blows cold air, but it takes so long and it doesn't get very cold at all, everything. I also want to figure out how to get a new headunit in, but all I've heard is people having lots of issues with stereo swaps on Saabs, I do like my steering wheel controls, along with heated seats all around. The car is so nice. 

Saab owners usually do care about their cars ... and i just found 1999 Saab 95 2.3 Aero wagon with a manual and near 280k km for 500 euros ... the ad says that it its in a good shape xD

That's only 173K miles, about 10K more than is on my chassis. I'd say go for it if you could somehow.

 

But I'm the guy that if something can be fixed up or cleaned up a bit, I'll do it in a heart beat. Plus I like knowing when and how often maintenance is done on other peoples cars, let alone my own.

Not bad at all. I wish my mom would have listened to my advice when she was car shopping. Her car had one previous owner that put 60K on the car. A CAR RENTAL SERVICE she doesn't understand that people abuse all hell out of rental cars. So now at 103K the car is starting to have issues with the tranny slipping, stuff like that. She also went A YEAR without changing her oil with this car.

 

She worries me so much

For some reason a Honda Odyssey owner decided to slam his mini van. Kinda funny to see tbh.

I kinda like slammed minivans, SUVs, and wagons.

 

 

Something about long, low vehicles just seems so right

My exhaust is a bit rusty. but I want to upgrade it down the line anyway so I'm not too bothered. I've got full leather and heated seats which is so nice, leather is a bit worn out, but it's a 17 year old car, it's too be expected

hmm honestly i suggest you sell the car and get something that doesn't have tranny issues. rental cars are a definite yellow flag when buying used.

I used to not like leather seats, but I haven't experienced them in the summer yet. Want to get the windows tinted to keep the interior cooler before I have to worry about that

The cold seats I don't need to worry about, but I've got a tan interior, so it could be worse for sure
