here is my new ride... Ford Focus ST 225HP
Adjusted my valve clearances today, took the skin off my knuckles, borked my elbow and got attacked by wasps. My work here is done.
Wait, you mean you were at Cars & Coffee that time? I missed the one earlier this month because I forgot, but I'll be going to the one next week.
I ordered some decals for my car, pics below:
Now thats a restoration project morbias lol ive allways wanted do something similar myself, or do a big engine conversion.
izikog - Focus ST aint to bad, been in a couple, pretty quick mapped up.
What the ****?
Oh excuse me, I meant what kind of nitrous oxide injection setup are you running on that car?
Those wheels seem to have too much positive offset.
Hey leader. why don't you draw some of your "amazing" artwork, have them put into decals and putt hem on your car. I'm sure you'll be the bees knees!
Problem Van Gogh?
I was just saying 'small world' because we had a chat (on nagtroc.com) about that same green widebody GTR that you snapped a picture of - from the same event.
why you know like australian mechanics, eh? PROBLEM???
eDit: you canno tok u know even have avataR
nice one man!
New bike, now time for the modding to begin. Already ordered new exhaust and I'm poor as a mouse right now. But damn it was worth it :banana:
I took a bunch of pics at Cars & Coffee over the weekend. Check it out here.
On a side note, I'd like to see what you guys think of the Nissan Juke? It's on the bottom of the list of cars I would like. (Yes, I'm so undecisive) Just looking at the specs, it seems like a good buy. It is small, 170HP turbo, AWD, 28/32MPG, for $20K. Then you look at it and you just kinda stop and go WTFWTFWTF? Three rows of lights? But why?
If I get it, I would drop that sucker like this photoshop
Now this actually looks decent, but thats like a 3-4" drop and would need a new suspension I assume.
if they didnt add the dumbass row of lights on top and designed it to be more of a hatchback they could have been onto something with that car...i like it until i see the upper lights -_-
Yeah I was thinking the same. It could have been a good competitior against other hatchbacks like the MazdaSpeed3 or the Impreza WRX hatch. It would have been the modern Nissan Pulsar GTI-R.
Browsing Juke forums, people say "Why would you want to drop it or add an exhaust" etc. Apparently many people like it as is. If I were to get one, I would strip the entire thing of it's plastic exterior and its decorative interior. I don't need navs and fancy painted accented stuff.
H&R company has made some springs to lower the Juke, but I want it lower!
My photoshop, thats at least a 3" drop haha.
I'm still undecided on what car I'm getting later this year haha. I was almost ready to get an '11 Impreza WRX, then a used '06 STI, then a Lotus Elise, now I just kinda want something still with more MPG. My current Accord feels like 20MPG, but now I want something with more and getting the cars I listed isn't really the answer and the Juke is 27/32MPG.
ugh those top lights...everything is fine but those. what were they THINKING?
Apparently those are turn signals and the biggest I've ever seen on a vehicle. I wonder what it looks like removed and just an empty hole or mesh in it's place.
juke looks all wrong to me well ok back is ok but front ugh.
