    You know, Conker, you might have a shit car but I'm jelly of that 3100. They're really a garbage engine but I still love how they sound.

    I really wouldn't mind having a Beretta or Corsica.

    I've been driving alone for about 7 months now and i still find it fun. Even with a 1.0L engine.
    What do you drive?

    Alright, so I ended up going for a 3 hour drive around my city with some friends. We went through McDonald's drive-thru twice haha, it was epic. Driving is fucking awesome, so happy to have my license.

    Thank you!
    No P plates, only thing mother said not to do was use my mobile whilst driving which I'm not gonna do.

    Yeah, texting whilst driving is a bad habit to pick up. Just remember to be super careful. If you find yourself questioning whether or not you can make lights/junctions etc don't do it! and bare in kind like 9/10 new drivers hit something. The luck comes in hiting things that don't claim on your insurance, in my case, reversing into a lampost and the neighbours fence. Haha
    Happy driving!

    Driving is the most fun thing in my opinion, even after thousands and thousands of kilometers, I still love it, and for me, it is the greatest stress reliever. Even with my slowpoke N/A 3800.

    I want driving to be fun but my vehicle does not suit me at all. I don't use the bed very often so I'm not justifying the mileage. Because I have nothing in the bed, it gets hardly any traction. Because it's a 4 Cylinder truck, it's extremely slow to speed up, and it's an automatic and I tried learning manual and 2 hours flew by so fast I didn't even notice.

    Now I want a manual car that can actually go. :C Not sure what I want though...

    You not taking care of your engine and it sounding like it's falling apart does not mean they all sound like that.

    Fix your shit. Do a valve adjustment, if it sounds like a bunch of bees then you've got way too much play. Probably happened when you ran it out of oil.

    They're piss-ass-fuck easy to work on, too. I should know, that's all I've been doing every single day for the past month. I work as a mechanic for ABQ Cab, and as you may or may not know, Crown Vics and Shuttle Vans are the only things they run. And we have like, 30 of the vics alone.

    They're all retired interceptors, as well. Meaning they are all tuned up with the interceptor packages and everything.

    Hence why I want to dump this automatic 4cyl truck for some reliable good on gas manual.
    I don't use the bed (So no traction either), the gas is terrible and it's slow as fck.

    I mean, it's MY truck but I realize I'll fall in love with any car that I like, so eh.

    The fact that I don't have to stand in the freezing cold waiting on a bus to go places is worth it for insurance and fuel costs.

    Yeah, they're so cheap to insure. I go to two Sixth Forms and at one point everyone at both just drove Corsa's! Until someone inherited Grandads old Skoda that is :P I'm always surprised when I see one that clearly isn't a first car!

    I agree, if i was older with a well paid job and quite a lot of NCB, then a Corsa wouldn't be in my top ten cars i'd buy if i'm honest. Good car though.

    I'm going to drive to work with my diagnostic kit connected with the GPS logging function enabled.
    I want to see my acceleration habits.

    Also the coolant temperature sensor is being a prick again, causing the dash to go "ENGINE OVERHEAT" *beep* *beep* *Beep* (even when the engine is only just warm to touch) or to read 0.
    Not good as this controls the electric fan on the radiator - I tested this by disconnecting it and the fan spins up to maximum.
    Luckily I'll have it up on a lift on saturday so I'll be able to get to the sensor and the wiring really easy.
