With Realmofo and Omisan showing off their autos and the talk of gumball I thought there had to be a members car thread! (or has there already?) Ok, really, I just have to keep up with these boyz...

So to da ladies who wants to come cruisin' wit ev?



My mates nicknamed it the 'Mirth Mobile' as it has a little likeness with the pacer from 'Waynes World'
It's a 4 speed, 2 seater panel van with sun visor and all - isn't she a beauty? Best of all it was given to me and is 15AUD to fill the tank!

The visor is the crowning touch...

maybe some spinner hubcaps to complete the effect.

y'know, I had a baby blue Datsun that looked just like that. Somebody rear-ended me at 30 mph in that thing and there was barely a dent in it-- you couldn't destroy that car!

Nice! That reminds me of my first car that I *tried* to learn to drive a standard tranny with... it was a Ford Fiesta, in custom gold & bondo. No Sun visor, though

I have a pic of the old mercedes that I sadly had to give up:

It's now on view at Frybrid as a project grease car! I'm just glad it went to a good home.

And here's part of the current one (pic taken in the middle of nowhere, E. Washington, during a freezing-rain-filled drive back to civilization):

Yeah, see all the dirt? And what looks like water? It's all ICE.

Oh, that is a beaute, EV !

VW's are perfect in Seattle, Jeanie B) I had an old 72 bug and a 77 Rabbit back in the day.

Jas, that's definitely a chick magnet. You'll fit in just fine in Redondo.

I don't have any photos of my car, Infiniti G35 coupe. But here's a couple of photos that I found on another site. Same color, rims, navi, but no tint on the window...yet.




A major reason why I may not be taking an extended backpacking trip anytime soon

Wow Tony - that is one COOL ride...!

Jeanie - you should tell a little story about your MB that is now run on Veggie Oil (that always sounds too funny for me...!)

Jase - is that a Camaro or a Trans AM (can't tell cause you're wearing a bra...)

Ev - dude I like that ride....you can certainly pimp it up as it's got uber cool potential...!

Damn nice cars fellas and ladies, that old Mercedes is NICE! I want it! Nothing like a droptop camaro, hope its a Z28. G35 coupe is pimp, another reason why my car was discontinued...
