thanks... I really don't want to piss anyone off. I 'm usually a real nice guy, just sometimes when I say things they come out wrong. peace?

Peace.

No worries, bro... I LOVE this forum and the people on it. ;)

This place is so laid back, compared to other forums... where everyone "one-ups" every one else, or they're so anal...like they think their "post count", makes them superior or special. :roll:

As for the nice guy thing, I'm the same way.......... I've NEVER started a fight in my life..... Although, I have finished a few. lol :P

I've finished a few fights with my nose. Ask me how much reconstructive surgery is. Why did we box on Battalion Sports Day?

I'd like to drive the new Fiat 500 Abarth Essessessesssseseesses whatever one. Then, if that works, I'd buy five of the ones they will never import (too awesome), the one with the cage and seats and everything needed to go fishing.

honestly, I don't keep up with the cars of today enough to know even what's all out there. I would say though that the Scion tc might be one to watch.

30 years from now very few will probably be on the road, and very few of those will actually be stock!

anyone remember the Mugen Civic Si that Honda brought out? yeah.. those will definitely be "in demand" even if they still kinda sucked performance wise.. but if you have one that wasn't stolen and stripped, it's a $$$$!!! but then again, if you have ANY honda that wasn't stolen and stripped it would be worth money.. HAHA.. :) i hate owning hondas sometimes..

honestly, when I was looking for a car about a year ago, that was the only reason I wasn't looking at Hondas. They're a good car, but most of them have been seriously messed up by a previous owner, and they are very likely to get stolen... which reminds me, true story: one Monday I went in to work, and there was a white civic just sitting in front of the building idling. one of my co-workers reached in and shut it off, we notified the cops, and it turned out it was stolen from the Walmart 2 blocks away Friday night. yes, it had been idling ALL WEEKEND!! the cops got a hold of the owner, who came and picked it up, but it was funny because when he started it back up again, it spit a whole bunch of water out the exhaust, probably from how long it was idling.

nah, there's no writing on them. :P

I wouldn't mind stashing away a NA8 MX-5 and a S15 Silvia. They were cars that I lusted after when I was younger and broke, now I'm older and broke, I still can't afford one but they just seem like such a good blank canvas.

Having said that I'll always have at least two chrome bumper'd cars in the garage.

that "read" i would assume you would mean "red"???

they are rusty drums, not painted.

if you meant "rear" then in 90 the CRX Si came with rear discs. in 92, the civic got rear discs.. prior, all drums..

I would like to think that I will still have this......a future classic I reckon. The last of the original shape, so has all the mod cons. Still the best looking of the breed....

Front STI lip is missing in this pic as it was in my shed getting re-glassed and resprayed.....AGAIN :roll:

Have had it for many years, its been a great car and a crap load of fun...

Obviously Civics S chassis and the like will be desirable. The young people of today have them, butcher them, right them off, lust for them. Just like the 1200's and the 510's they are cheap fun cars but their numbers will dwindle significantly as they already are and they will be worth decent money.

I think I might have an odd soft-spot for the Nissan Juke. Never woulda had my Mom not bought a crossover. Anywho.

I've gotta admit I think the Juke is kind of rad looking. Although it really does look like a snub-nose version of one of my Aasics running shoes.

I also really like the look of the new Maxima's. But I'm also a bit of a Nissan homer so it's not terribly surprising.

I think 30 years from now some of the cars that we come back and love are fairly obvious, Z, RX-8, GT-R, I would wager the maxima and camry will gain some ground as well. But other than those it's hard to say. And even then I could be way off base, a group of GtR's could go roaming across the country-side pillaging and raping and they lose all likeability and are left alone for one hundred years until they get a series of movies romanticizing and glorifying what they did.
