i guess a civic is alright if your looking for fuel efficiency but i like my 1999 dodge dakota 5.2L 5 speed and it hauls ass and im currently looking for a 70s muscle car anything like a camaro to mustang to duster but it must have a V8 and be manual.... i just like fast loud cars! plus the 60/70s muscle cars looked amazing as well!

I would guess that I am richer (better) than most of you. But I have earned it, so I have no problems talking about it.
You're a funny man/woman/whatever.

Can't help you with 'fast', but if its loud you're looking for, my Pontiac that I'm driving until I pick up my new car is quite the noisebox at the moment, but that's only because it's muffler is pretty well vapour now. LOL

I had it big for the 68 Camaro. Gorgeous car and it was almost my first car...crazy to think that when I was looking at it, it was only 20 years old! May I interest you in the new Mustang GT? I love Mustangs, and have had two, an 05 already in this thread and a 99 GT. Both great cars but the new ones have the refinement that the old can't even contemplate. but I understand the attraction. I was a guy at night, after going out to the Market we would cruise, race until 4am.

great times, great times and no one, thankfully every got hurt. Remember when they finished building west Hunt Club Road and we all called it Hockenheim, after the famed F1 track in Germany because it was super high speed cutting through the forest. Hitting 200 back then on those roads was crazy, sort of, but I won't pretend I didn't do it and wouldn't advise my kids to do it either.

Haha, true. And topping off windshield washer fluid is SO easy.

Honestly, I drive so much, I need to know alittle about cars. The other week, on my way to work, I got a flat, and well... when I got to work, people were like, so CAA came quickly to help??? I think people assume every girl is useless.

I have had to call my dad twice though -- once was my first flat I got when I was 17 (which is the day I learned how to change a tire). Then, my fan belt lit on fire on the highway. And I`m not THAT good.

man a 68 camaro would be nice but there out of my price range, but i will not buy a newer mustang there just too many of them around , but i am looking at a 69 and 73 mustang right now both running good with little to no rust but the both need new paint and only have a 302 and are auto ... so im waiting to see what else pops up ...hopefully a duster/demon with a 340 and 4 speed..

After returning from the banana plantation, I sold cars for four years. I now work as the financial services manager for a Chrysler dealership in Victoria B.C. I see hundreds - thousands of people come and go each year enjoying that euphoria of buying their first car. Each time, it is special for me.

All the manufacturers have come a long way in producing quality, technology driven, fuel economic, innovative, modern vehicles. They all have to compete with the same intelligent, internet savvy, educated buyer that characterizes today's shopper. The domestic brands are now just as good (if not better) than many Asian brands. The beautiful thing about the car industry is that there is an opinion on which is a better car for each make and model. Diversity is a wonderful thing.

Congrats on your first NEW car. Its a great feeling! Love it, cherish it, SERVICE THE **** out of it. I firmly believe in car karma. The better you treat your ride, the better it will treat you.

Im 35 too, I drive any Chrysler, Jeep, or Dodge product I want, but I have never bought my own brand NEW car before. Congrats!

Car manufacturers are now making such sophisticated automatic transmissions that they are indeed getting BETTER fuel economy than manual transmissions.

Its a bit thirsty, but I really love driving my six-speed manual transmission Rubicon with the dual top group! Summer is here baby!

Same here. I will pay Ultra 94 and DRIVE my car because for me, I don't have many vices other than cars, when I get in my car first thing in the morning on the way to work, or at then end of the day, it is therapeutic. Makes me happy! Of course, getting 13mpg on Ultra isn't great, but there is nothing like a V8 at wide open throttle that sound slike Thor's hammer hitting the road!
