Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 150k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

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

Popeyes is certainly NOT just a southern thing, Canes is around here too but much less common. I like Popeyes chicken, it's generally pretty good and their sides are very good.

we don't have in and out here so unfortunately I can't compare.

but im sure both are great in their own little ways.

 

this may be unpopular idk, but I don't like KFC!

Popeyes and Canes (both of which may just be a southern thing) are usually what I go for for fried chicken lol

 

But you have like, actual southern fried chicken though

I did some bread crumb shallow pan fried chicken a while back that was super good. About 375-400 oil temp, about 1/4 inch deep oil in cast iron, and breaded it with egg dredge and shake n bake buffalo chicken on the first dip and chili lime on the second dip, let them rest about 5 minutes between dips for the breading to stick on better and then about 15 minutes after the last dip. About 3 or 4 minutes a side in the hot oil and then out to cool a little and right to the plate. I was using thin cut breasts so they cooked up pretty fast. Call me trashy for using shake n bake but it was on sale for like $1 a box and I wanted to have some home fried chicken too so win/win there I guess. I love my trashy home cooked foods.

I feel like I haven't posted here(and on LLT in general) for an age. I got the car back on the road, and I've been using it most weekends to drive around the country catching up with friends. So tonight when I get home from work I'm going to sprinkle some photoshoot goodness in this thread :) 

How y'all doing? Any new cars of note?

I do love the MPG of my protégé. City MPG I get around 27,and that's driving like a mad man. If I drove like a prius owner or insight owner do you think I'd get any better? Right now I'm at 130 miles at a little over half a tank-13 gallon tank but I've never put more than 11 in it. 

 

I do run fuel additives every few thousand miles, and do find better gas milage. The "performance" well that's very minimal lol. It's a cleaner,not race gas. It's an efficiency enhancer.. But yeah it'll add about 2-3 MPG- Lucas products. I've been running them for a few years. I run two or three bottles - one every tank at every oil change which is every 4-5k miles. 

 

And it's OK, be jealous of my low mileage for a 2001 ??

Aside from having the rust repaired and a new spoiler(not pictured), I have to admit that I'm a bit of a nerd for factory options. No scrap that, a total fucking nerdI've been sourcing parts and wiring looms for all sort of rarer factory options, for years now. All boxed up and labelled, waiting for the day they can all get fitted.

 

And seeing as I've also decided to give black interior a go, it was the perfect time. The whole white/grey interior came out, carpet and all, so everything electrical could be properly retrofitted; wiring under the carpets, mounts for new modules etc. Some looms I had were complete, but some had to be cut out of donor cars. So auto electrician buddy helped me out, manufacturing me new looms using the original connectors. Aside from the electrical, I also added some less common interior trims

List of parts added;

- Heated seats
- Electric seats
- Cruise control
- Headlight washers
- Harmon Kardon soundsystem
- Electric rear pop-out windows
- Parking sensors

- Roller blind parcelshelf

- 'Extended'(leather trimmed) dashboard
 

It was a good spec car before, as E36's go...but now, I can safely call it 'mega' :D:D

They always looked silly to me as they come factory. The mirrors make it look like a dog with its ears back. And the headlights are too thick. And the interior is ugly with the wood. 

 

The porsche 911 is a better car. Haven't seen any FD's here otherwise I'd vouch for the FD's.

Big fan of the M3. It's the only car from that time that doesn't look ugly to me - maybe for non-aesthetic reasons
