I've posted these pics before, but what the hell:
My 2002 6-speed Maxima :
My POS 325is 5-speed that I got for $600:
(Yes, the exhaust is on the ground in this picture...I was in the middle of a clutch swap.)
chevy may hit it out of the park, hopefully this doesnt cost over 40k
Sweet! I have owned 2 Maximas, a 2000 Super Black GXE and a 2003 Majestic Blue SE. I kinda miss my 2003 sometimes.
you still have the '00 and got rid of the '03?? But..but...why? lol. I'm jk, my mom's 2000 was a beast. We got rid of it about 6 months ago with 240k miles on the clock and it still ran like new. Never had to put any money into it either. Are yours auto or manual? I have a friend with a 5-speed 2001 GXE.
No, I have neither at this point. I traded my '00 for the '03 and loved that car (the '03). My av is still the '00 (I think it is time to change that). Definately the '03 over the '00 tho!!
My mom had a '97 SE 5speed that was fantastic.
So i sold my rims, and had rusted black steelies and hubcaps on. This was not acceptable, so i grinded the rust off, sanded, primered, and painted em silver. End Result:
Notice the poking and deep dish on the rear. Those are off a e34. The front is very indented ( stock e36 steelies). End result is a heavily staggered setup without having different width tires. Its all about the poking!
Back in a VW diesel again and loving it! 400,362 miles as of this post.
Got the call a bit ago, we are picking up Project Mystake Friday morning...
I just got my BMW back to Baton Rouge, it's been sitting at my grandpa's house for 2 months... I forget how much I love driving that car. If only it weren't so unreliable!! grr...
My dumb ass left ONE key at home, had 3 others with me and there were at least 3-5 more at my cousins house NONE of them would work Went to ford to get a key "sorry 98's have been kicked out of the system, call a locksmith" Needless to say it's till setting on a cul de sac in KC. Going down that way in about two weeks and I will take the one key we didn't try then.
I need to take pictures...I'm no effin photographer though.
aluminum trim, on board map, plastic seats
Side swiped someone, and I have no clue how had my blinker on and checked my blind spot, and it was just after leaving my bfs house
Plus I took my car onto the alignment rack today in my auto class, and my car is extreme fucked the front frame is slightly bent, because my caster/camber is way off. (Can't be adjusted on a Honda accord) Plus all my tires are shot as well... So yea I am just about to put a shit load of money into this car. Well actually my parents are paying for the tires Atleast my toe angle is set right woohooo!
See if you can notice the difference
Thats after some modifications to make it drivable lol I had to take out a braket which was severely bent, and I found some random bolt/nut to hold the rail below the headlight to the fender. Plus I had to bend it up abit. Apparently I didnt bend the frame to bad though nothing you can see visually.
I'll post more pictures once it gets out of the shop.
This car is bad luck...
the daily driver:
the project car:
and the car that doesn't move:
hope you got lojack on that shit. a friend of a friend of a friends turbo EK9 just got swiped...they havent found it yet
I had 4300hp between my legs a few minutes ago....
4300HP is death between your legs. What was this even? Between your legs sounds like a motorcycle but a 4300HP motorcycle is not realistic at all. If there is such thing, keep me away from it please.
Virality is right BNSF SD70ACe actually two of them so it was actually 8600 hp. Omg it was amazing.. LOL! Pics up later
What I ride every now and then (mostly to Disneyland):
Daily driver (except in charcol grey):

Also need to get a daily driver that's a bit more practical. This MR2 can get tiring on long road trips or runs to grocery.
damn, a lot of money went into those cars...I can't wait to graduate and have money My E36 is getting some cosmetic/mechanical treatment pretty soon. New alternator, starter, IM gaskets, random sensors, wheels, painting the lower part, and finally getting the driver's side door panel. However my maxima has to suffer for a little while longer.
