1993 Dodge Dakota (3.9L V6) :laugh:

Pros
Good Runner.
4wd is great for icey mornings.
Low miles for a 12 year old almost daily ran, (84,963 miles)
More power than my buddies trucks :)
Manual trans. is way more fun than auto
New clutch
New front brake pads & rotors

Cons
The radio only works sometimes.
Brakes I don't like to much, its like 80% front / 20% rear :(
Balding tires (they are original)
Needs muffler :shifty:
Gas mileage..its a truck hehe.

Mods
Straight pipe to replace my muffler. It's a temporary thing. ;)

Current Status
In the backyard, with a full tank of gas. I drive it to school and work.

No accidents, bumper to bumper contact with my friend is on purpose. And on country roads.

Remember, I'm not tailgating.. :shifty: I'm drafting!

DRAFTING:
The practice of two or more cars, while racing, to run nose-to-tail, almost touching. The lead car, by displacing the air in front of it, creates a vacuum between its rear end and the nose of the following car, actually pulling the second car along with it.

1986 Pug 205 GRD. Great car (only needed approx. 4l/100km Diesel) until a truck driver decided to make an u-turn on the highway without looking into the mirror. :( 100 km/h and bang, only broke my nose...

1999 Toyota 4Runner. Here is what it looked like when I bought it:

And here is what it looks like now. It's a lot nicer car than I ever could have afforded had I bought a new one or even a used one.

jesus! that must have been an extremely expensive repair bill for a 'cheap car'.

how much did it cost to get the chassis straightened out? how did you manage to find all the proper parts on the cheap?

My first car was a 1974 Plymouth Satellite. I got it a week before high school graduation. It had a 318 c.i. engine, so it wasn't very good on gas.

I can't remember either, that was quite a while ago. I think it might've been some Nissan my mom used to have. An Altima or Maxima or Sentra.
