Sometimes, life just gives you a good slap on the ass and says "You earned this one, bud!".

2007 Dodge Charger SRT8 Superbee, vehicle 812 of 1000 made. I got to peel the tires off it today.

Ugh, I wish I had fun stuff like this come into my shop once in a while. Closest we ever get is maybe the odd vette or whatnot that comes in for an oil change for some reason. Then again, I don't get to touch them anyway, yay for being a retail/parts bitch.

going to test drive a '91 cutlass wagon tomorrow
50k on the odometer, body looks to be in good condition
seller wants $1600
hopefully it's not a piece of shit

So guys, what rims do you have? I have oz turbos and schmidt cup th-lines. Pic is missing my widened steelies and momo tuners
#14925 to #14923 - hourlyb (9 hours ago) [-]
When I get a nice car sneeze-cough Supra , I want to get Volk TE37's on it.
#14924 to #14923 - apurpleliger (9 hours ago) [-]
I just have the stock steelies on my cars, but next time I get new tires on the soul I'm probably getting some sort of 5-spokes like the ones pictured
#14917 - mechanicexplain ONLINE (04/25/2015) [-]
Some days, I really do love my job.

We got a 6.4L SRT8 model in at the same time. I get to drive that one tomorrow morning.

So help me out here guys. I don't have a car or anything and I am starting to look for one. I am looking for a car within the $1,000-$2,000 dollar range, nothing too fancy just a car that I can afford on a college budget. I am obviously not looking for a car on here I just need some advice. What kind of car should I start off with? I'm a college freshman, I live in campus and my family at most lives 3 hours away. So not a super long drive. Traffic isn't much of a problem because I am in a smaller city. What car would be best suited for me? And where could I look for said car and what should I ask the dealership about when getting the car so they won't rip me off?

i would suggest a late 90s or early 00s toyota or honda
User avatar #14919 to #14914 - benderisgreat (04/25/2015) [-]
A Camry or Corolla would be good but i'd be hard to find one worth a shit for under 2 grand. So, try for a Saturn SL series, they're the perfect college car. They're cheap to buy, cheap to fix, and they sip fuel like a bird. My brother bought one for $350 and put over 90k miles on it.
User avatar #14916 to #14914 - mechanicexplain ONLINE (04/25/2015) [-]
Toyota, Honda, VW. Early 2000's.
User avatar #14918 to #14916 - sphincterface ONLINE (04/25/2015) [-]
Thanks man. Gonna do some searching tomorrow if I get the chance.
User avatar #14910 - chewythewolftwo (04/25/2015) [-]
Volvo C30 I discovered this like half an hour ago and have watched it at least half a dozen times. I really fucking want a C30 R Design now.
User avatar #14913 to #14912 - chewythewolftwo (04/25/2015) [-]
You shoudl've seen the fucking subframe on my buddy's Focus ST. He's static at 3/8's in the summer, sometimes lower. Shit was grinding down on the oil pan drain plug before he replaced it.
#14895 - apurpleliger (04/25/2015) [-]
So here I am, browsing through the local craigslist, when I see a dealer is selling an automatic 2013 Kia Soul base with 34k miles for as much as my standard 2013 base cost brand new. Dealers, man.
#14897 to #14895 - apurpleliger (04/25/2015) [-]
And another one with 30k miles for the same price!
User avatar #14891 - chewythewolftwo (04/24/2015) [-]
Car guy time!
12k+- budget.
Would prefer manual transmission/sporty model in almost every case. Nothing is out of the question.
Currently looking at Volvo C30 R-Designs, Volvo V70R's, Lexus IS300's, VW GTI's, etc.
Gimme your two cents!
Also in America so no cool Opels or anything
#14898 to #14891 - apurpleliger (04/25/2015) [-]
If you're looking at the Lexus, does that mean that a Supra isn't out of the question? What about a Subaru of some sort? You can also probably find an 2005-ish GTO for around that
User avatar #14902 to #14898 - chewythewolftwo (04/25/2015) [-]
Hmmm. A goat might be cool.
It's hard to find a supra for 12grand though, lol
User avatar #14921 to #14902 - shedinja (23 hours ago) [-]
Aspirated mkiv's go for less than 12. It's the turbos people want ridiculous money for, atleast in the usa
#14904 to #14902 - apurpleliger (04/25/2015) [-]
If you're willing to sacrifice the turbo or standard tranny it's not impossible. Drop both and it's easily in range
User avatar #14892 to #14891 - firehippie (04/25/2015) [-]
but opels were sold here in america for a time tho. I just found two opel gt's for sale on craigslist
User avatar #14893 to #14892 - chewythewolftwo (04/25/2015) [-]
I should add that this needs to be a reliable daily so I can finish the SHO and the Galaxie lolol
User avatar #14894 to #14893 - firehippie (04/25/2015) [-]
well there goes that. the ones I found near me need basically a complete restoration lol
User avatar #14896 to #14894 - chewythewolftwo (04/25/2015) [-]
That's the new england struggle lol.
Like... Something fun to DD for the next few years so I can actually masquerade as an adult, lol.
Not really interested in a WRX buuuut that's only because EVERYONE around here has one. I'd still consider it
#14899 to #14896 - apurpleliger (04/25/2015) [-]
Forester XT is the SUV version, right? Mind be hard to find but it'll be something different
User avatar #14901 to #14899 - chewythewolftwo (04/25/2015) [-]
Two of my buddies have XT's, lol. Same with Legacy GTs. Like... 75% of car guys around here drive boosted scoobies lol
#14903 to #14901 - apurpleliger (04/25/2015) [-]
Ah. Then my primary vote goes back to a GTO. Or I think if you can find a Mazdaspeed 6 it's big, quick, and AWD
User avatar #14905 to #14903 - chewythewolftwo (04/25/2015) [-]
Hah,
buddy of mine has an MS3
He's going big turbo this summer, already has front mount and full bolt on to the tune of about 410 WHP. Motherfucker is FAST.
#14890 - mcginger (04/24/2015) [-]
Saw this crazy shit driving around the other day. It's called a slingshot and is made by Polaris. Looks pretty cool Sorry for the sideways picture my phone does that for some reason when uploading on here
#14900 to #14890 - apurpleliger (04/25/2015) [-]
They're not street legal in Texas
#14906 to #14900 - mcginger (04/25/2015) [-]
Really?? Why?
#14907 to #14906 - apurpleliger (04/25/2015) [-]
They're considered neither motorcycles nor cars so they can't be licensed for driving on the road. Strangely enough, the Campagna T-Rex has been legal for years.
#14908 to #14907 - mcginger (04/25/2015) [-]
That's odd
#14889 - bggeddevtwo (04/24/2015) [-]
so my mercedes is going to the scrapyard on monday, and I thougth that we needed a ''last rally'' before it was scraped.
this was the end resoult.
the back axle was almost destroyed after we got the car up.
any thougths?
#14884 - fefe (04/24/2015) [-]
i don't know what it is

but i want it
User avatar #14915 to #14884 - sphincterface ONLINE (04/25/2015) [-]
That's an ooooooold pickup dude. Like a 40's or 50's pickup. Surprised it is in such good shape.
User avatar #14885 to #14884 - cycloneclone (04/24/2015) [-]
1940s ford pickup
not sure what year specifically tho
#14927 to #14885 - fefe (5 hours ago) [-]
>>#14915, i know it's an old pickup, but i can't tell what make or year

i want to say 50's chevy or gmc, or 40's ford.

i'm gonna take a closer look tomorrow and see how much they want for it
#14873 - knobhill (04/24/2015) [-]

You try really hard, don't you?
Do us a favor and quit the cringy shit!
Thanks! :^)
#14888 to #14887 - hourlyb (04/24/2015) [-]
Nah thanks.
You can fuck off though.
#14877 to #14873 - fefe (04/24/2015) [-]
Do yourself a favor and just stop following those movies, after tokyo drift it changed to "vin diesel and paul walker wreck cool cars and blow shit up, 1,2 and 3: ft the rock and other people nobody fucking cares about!"

How sick would it be to cruise around on Halloween, just as it is with no paint job.
#14880 to #14878 - apurpleliger (04/24/2015) [-]
Bruh, I'd put a hot tub back there and watch all the haters be jelly
User avatar #14911 to #14880 - benderisgreat (04/25/2015) [-]
I like the way you think, kid.
#14867 - mechanicexplain ONLINE (04/24/2015) [-]
Few things strike fear into the heart of a tech quite as much as a customer who starts their visit to your shop with the words "My son tried to fix it, but...".

This is what this Sonata looked like when it rolled off the wrecker. The customers kid swore up and down that the timing belt had snapped, but there's no internal damage to speak of. So, now it's up to ME to put all the shit he tore off it back on, and THEN I get to do a timing belt, too.

How do you learn to work on cars?
Because I'm 100% sure my dad won't let me open up his Accord, and I have only some money.
User avatar #14928 to #14926 - mechanicexplain ONLINE (2 hours ago) [-]
Lots of preparation and learning, followed by just enough hands-on to understand the subject. Hands-on experience can be earned when you understand enough to not cause expensive damage.
User avatar #14932 to #14928 - hourlyb (2 hours ago) [-]
So just read up online and such.
User avatar #14933 to #14932 - mechanicexplain ONLINE (1 hour ago) [-]
Everyone learns differently. As long as a good, solid knowledge base is holding you up, I wouldn't worry as much.
User avatar #14871 to #14867 - multiplegermans (04/24/2015) [-]
I hate putting shit back together I didn't tear apart. I can look at all the manuals,guides and videos in the world but something won't be right when I'm done. The only way I know how to put something back together perfectly is if I was the one to take it apart
User avatar #14922 to #14871 - mechanicexplain ONLINE (15 hours ago) [-]
The real concern with this one is whether or not we have all the pieces, or if anything was destroyed.
User avatar #14881 to #14861 - hanakoikezawa ONLINE (04/24/2015) [-]
my next vehicle isw going to be an suv/station wagon. a wagoneer would be fucking awesome
User avatar #14876 to #14861 - shedinja (04/24/2015) [-]
Yes, yes you do need it you buy this shit right now that's the cleanest station wagon i've ever seen
User avatar #14883 to #14876 - cycloneclone (04/24/2015) [-]
yeah i think i'm gonna go check this mofo out this weekend
hopefully they're willing to lower the price a little bit
#14869 to #14861 - apurpleliger (04/24/2015) [-]
That's the comfiest looking car I've ever seen
User avatar #14870 to #14869 - cycloneclone (04/24/2015) [-]
i don't know man, it's just so fucking tempting
i think it's time to upgrade
#14872 to #14870 - apurpleliger (04/24/2015) [-]
I agree
#14862 to #14861 - mechanicexplain ONLINE (04/24/2015) [-]
It's a goddamn living room on wheels.
User avatar #14866 to #14862 - cycloneclone (04/24/2015) [-]
with a corvette engine
#14857 - jorgethemaster (04/24/2015) [-]
Something different.

Mercedes 600.
First time ever seeing one.
#14860 to #14857 - cycloneclone (04/24/2015) [-]
maximum comfy
#14858 to #14857 - apurpleliger (04/24/2015) [-]
That's got that drug dealer swag yo
#14851 - nigalthornberry (04/23/2015) [-]
Idk how I feel about these taillights
User avatar #14859 to #14851 - cycloneclone (04/24/2015) [-]
ugh those look awful
what were they thinking
User avatar #14855 to #14851 - sannukas (04/23/2015) [-]
Smoked taillights would look better.
User avatar #14856 to #14855 - nigalthornberry (04/23/2015) [-]
Those look better with a black car
#14841 - joshlol (04/23/2015) [-]
why are they so adorable?
User avatar #14852 to #14841 - nigalthornberry (04/23/2015) [-]
I honestly don't like miatas. There's the attractiveness that its small and it feels weirdish bring that close to the ground but I'd rather take an mg for that feeling
#14849 to #14841 - sylaz (04/23/2015) [-]
Cause its not angry looking like every other car out there

I think Regular car reviews described it perfectly in there review.
youtu.be/mZEVLQQ7uEc
User avatar #14850 to #14849 - joshlol (04/23/2015) [-]
seen both of his reviews on it lol
User avatar #14848 to #14841 - shedinja (04/23/2015) [-]
"Would you like to go for a drive today s-senpai"
User avatar #14847 to #14841 - hourlyb (04/23/2015) [-]
Puppy dog eyes.
The front inlet looks like a mouth agape at the amazing world.
Anime blush style turn signal lights.
Basically the size of a puppy compared to other sports cars.
