    solution, get a friend to go with you, stop where you want to start and then have the friend drive out to a certain distance to check for cops. if none, test car.

    On the way to my sisters, husbands work, it has a 20 mile long, completely straight road. He's maxed out both my sisters Soul, and his 09' Ram.

    HAHA! Sounds risky! The car wasn't too bad at that speed to be honest although I wouldn't have held much hope for the brakes if I had to make a sudden stop, it was a nice straight and nothing (or so I though) about so I thought I'd test it out. Can't believe the pistons didn't come flying through the bonnet, the engine was howling!

    Managed to get 120 on the clock (113 on the Satnav) when I was sent out in the work car 1.2 Renault Clio. When you join the M6 toll road there's a nice long stretch downhill and there's never much traffic about. Now that's one car that really shouldn't ever see those kind of speeds!
    My Getz has a supposed top speed of 102mph and 81bhp and my Mums boyfriend had indeed maxed it out once! But 8 years on, its probably like 90mph? haa

    My 240SX's governor kicked in at 115mph. Cut the speed sensor on the ECU, and then it would go around 135. I miss that car. :[

    My car could apparently hit 145mph (230km/hr) when it was new.

    Fastest I've been in it was around 120mph (190km/hr) but its auto-tradgic and I left it in "sports" mode which disables overdrive.

    This was out on the way to Roma which is flat open roads and the only things to watch out for are kangaroos and cows (which will wreck your car if you hit even at 100km/hr)

    The good ol' Prelude underestimates her own top speed. In the book it's listed as 142 but I've managed just over 150 before it bounced off the redline and the speedo reads a tiny bit low so it could have been 152. Does 120 in 4th Gear, crazy tall gearing for engine size

    Kinda how mine is, like i said i was still in 4'th gear doing 110 and i was just barely over cruising-speed-rpm's. Then again, seeing as how he put posy in the rear i think he may have changed the gears, too. Still though, I shutter to think what i could top it out at, never even tried

    Hm...I think i can just get to 60 at redline (2nd), makes for some nice 0-60 times seeing as the higher rpm's are where all the power is. Got nothing low-end in it

    If they're black and machined, maybe.

    What size?


    Also, debating on removing the stickers.

    They are gold and machined :S But honestly wouldn't look bad if you painted them black.

    They're 16x8, lug pattern is 4x100/4x114 and the offset is.... +35 I think.

    Yeah. Had then on the CRX and the Civic at one point but the CRX was too beat and the Civic wasn't really down for the baller/hellaflush look.



    The wheels are overall pretty clean. A small bit of rash around the edges on a couple but they could be buffed out easily if it bothers whoever.



    Two tires are 195/45R16 and two are 205/50R16, both are directionals and the 205's are pretty much new.





    Anyways, washed my bitch today.





    I need moarlow. :C Eventually when I get my driveway fixed, I'm going there.

    292 straight six, not 292 horse. There's a 66 in my back yard with the same engine, stout motor for as old as they are. Looking at more like 80-100 horses, 80 being more realistic.

    It's a nice truck though. I have a '64 myself but it's a half ton. My grandpa bought it new in 1964 and passed it down to me when he died.

    You should definately clean those old steelies up and paint them black or white, and thake that grill guard off. It's pretty ugly.

    And clean the rest of the truck up, all of that green makes me sick.

    Really though, you have a good truck. Take care of it. They're getting hard to find.

    Yea I'm looking into how much the bodywork would cost I hate the green and it wasnt the trucks original color someone painted it. I'm thinking a white top with a baby blue body, that would be nice. And yea I also have to put a new bed in the original wood bed is rotted out but I have plenty of rough cut lumber to use.

    Looked it up, the 1960-1966 292 I6 had 165hp, who knew. No V8 option until 1965 (although back in the day you could order any engine pretty much, much more lenient than today's automotive industry).

    My '64 C15 came with one of the I6's, the 230 or 292, I wouldn't know. It currently has a 455 olds in it with a 350 turbo iirc. It's red with a white top. I do like the two tone style on these trucks, the baby blue would look pretty nice. I'm all for it. My dad used to have a baby blue one with a white top with an old 350 down in it, since my grandpa gave me the '64 he decided all the boys should have a C15 in that generation and we got a few :) He had the '65, I have the '64, and my brother had a '65 that was satin black with orange trim pieces. It had a 383 stroker in it from what I remember, but the guy my dad had paint it fucked it up because he was driving it around and it wasn't ready.

    My brother traded his to a friend IIRC, my dad sold his, and I'll keep mine until the day I die.

    looking at new cars.

    War Machine is falling apart, her transfer case, rear differential, and transmission all went out at the same time. Right after my powertrain warranty ran out.

    Looking at a Subaru Impreza 2.5i, are those good cars? I adore Subarus. (also, are those fast? i'd love to get something fast after having a 1.5 ton SUV for 5 years)

    Yep. That, and Geo was always a GM/Chevrolet brand anyways. I don't recall anything in the brand actually being a GM product, it was their captive import brand. Chrysler tried this with Eagle, Ford just used its own major brands but it never really had any captive imports... It was always teamed up with Mazda of ventures like the Probe, and the early '90s Mercury Capri.

    I posted a little while back about my Caprice and my Winter car which was my crown victoria.

    I bought the crown vic for 1500...didnt like it (its a ford, Im a GM guy and it needed to much work) so I sold it, made my money back, and bought this...for 700 bucks...
    The engine is clean as a whistle, no rust at all on the underbody, it was elderly owned and only has 66,000 miles! Interior is perfect. Everything works apart from the power windows. I love this little car. Sadly this car had a life of sitting out in the sun. It has actually been repainted before in the late 90's.
    1987 Oldsmobile delta 88 Royal Brougham. It needs NO work, has BRAND new tires runs like a champ and to top it off, 24mpg city, 28hwy.
