      Fun story, but my uncle junked his Omni due to the headlights randomly cutting out. I was only 13 or 14 and the time and didn't think to ask him to let me use it as a field car. My BFF had an...

      Well, I was planning on either renting a car or a uhaul truck + trailer to get it tomorrow, but R32 guy will be out of town till monday. At least it gives me plenty of time to plan this out and get...

      I saw your username and immediately :rolleyes:.


      But you did remind me that Honda actually exists, so I'll add the 8th gen Si, and the Acura TL with the 6 speed (I love those).

      Modern cars that are future classics.

      What are some modern cars that will be sought after classics 15 or 20 years from now. Modern = mid 2000s or newer since hell, I even see Boxsters with classic tags here in WI :laugh:

      Particularly,...

      Glad I talked to my insurance agency (AmFam) since they wont insure it, but others may. I'd also put collectors plates on it since that should lower the premiums substantially, according to the...

      I'm warming up to the GTS-T idea, is 10-10.5 a good price for that one? The first thing I'd order is a service book and a timing belt kit (done 30K miles ago, but who knows how many years). Can't...

      Until the late 60s, the Beetle also had the distinction of being one of the only affordable imports capable of interstate speeds, and anyone could fix one.

      It's funny that you and Miles mentioned the R32 right away. I have my eye on a GTS-T about 4 hours away in Indiana, but I have no idea if it's a good price. Most concerning is that the owner has had...

      It doesn't pay to keep it a secret since I probably can't afford it anyway, but the European import I was primarily interested in was a Citroen DS. I don't know how they are priced in their home...

      Careful there. Pointing out governmental incompetence automatically makes you a radical and a closet anarchist.

      I haven't decided yet. The "euro" part refers to brands like Renault/Peugeot/Citroen that never really had much of a presence in NA, unlike say Jaguar or Mercedes. Like I said, the JDM models that...
    14. Owning and maintaining an import. How bad is it?

      Recently I've been thinking seriously about buying a 25+ year old Import, either a Japanese domestic market vehicle, with a powertrain and platform that was never sold here in any form, or a European...

      The Miata has actually gotten much cheaper since the NA days when you factor in inflation. Heck, 26K for a proper sports car with 21st century performance (sub 6 second 0-60) is a damn fine deal.

      It seems like many TCLers would be fine spendign all day chauffeuring half their family and friends around.

      It's not a matter of power, but of safety regs. Plus it would sell pretty poorly.


      Kei class cars would sell so poorly here that the market has room for one. MAYBE two so it should be...

      Do Uhaul rentals come with a receiver? Do they lend out anything that you are allowed to tow with?

      That's only the early iron dukes, which had a ridiculously small oil pan and a tendency to throw a rod through the block.
