I ain't got nothing against the Model T, the car to popularize mainstream motoring for the masses.
One side of the quote reads "Ford wanted simple designs and low costs" but the other side can read "Ford was a cheap, penny-pinching asshole"
Is there any car company that hasn't had recalls or documented problems in the last 5 years? Doesn't count if it's German and will break in 6 and cost as much as another car
Since there's a daily "should I get an old Porsche as my first car" thread then I guess this might be pertinent. Have you guys noticed how the 1970s-1990s transaxle era Porsches all seem to fall into a sort of a Project Management Triangle? As in, instead of having to choose two out of three in the "Fast, Cheap and Good" scheme, you have to choose between these:
The 924 is by far the most affordable Porsche and, since it was mostly engineered with sturdy Volkswagen and Audi parts that are widely available on the aftermarket, you can at the very least expect some reliability, but the performance is nowhere on the pace of its successors. It was conceived as a slower and mildly affordable touring car to succeed the 914, much like the Boxster is nowadays, rather than an actual performance car. The North American version is particularly bad in this regard, for some weird reason it had 1/3rd of the horsepower cut down from the original European version, hence why so many Americans disdain it as not being a "real Porsche".
The 944 is still pretty affordable and the handling is widely praised as being amongst the best for a 1980s sports car but relying on it as a daily drive without any form of back-up is pure madness. Same goes for the 928, it's even more powerful than the 944 and, despite being slightly more expensive, you can still find one in decent condition for less than 10k, but don't expect anything but pain when the rare and expensive engineering intricacies and the incredibly obsolete engine computer dies down on you. Both are cheap and perform well even for modern standard but don't expect reliability from them.
The 968 is easily the most well engineered out of the four, it has superb performance (especially the Club Sports version) and, being the most recent, it is also easily the most reliable, but you're certainly not going to find one in proper working condition for less than 10k.
So yeah, take your pick, fools.
It got too slow and fell off the board after a few posts each time it got created.
Get a Boxster they're more reliable and much more viable daily drivers
Too many people outside enjoying their cars and not enough posting and keeping the thread from falling off the board
desu. There were some decent discussions going on in there and at the very least we were always able to help whenever someone wanted engineering help for their P but it's pretty hard to maintain a lively community when we're talking about such an exclusive badge.
Still, there were some nice pics posted every now and then, pic related.
Hi /o/. I can pick up a Lada Nova for around 200-500€. It has around 70 bhp and RWD. My question is: could I drift it?
then dont drift it.

Get a load of this normie
on fwd vehicles in aus it's a p-plater tradition to get maccas trays and put them on the rear wheels
Its called McDonalds you sick freak
you better have a good clutch dump on that rice cooker or you might as well have stayed the fuck in bed this morning
Anyone here an Uber Driver?
I'm a part time teacher so I need the extra cash for obvious reasons.
Having a Corolla 2017, I'm going to try and get myself some Husky Liner mats, some seat covers, and get to work.
Located in Toronto, Canada.
nobody on /o/ actually owns cars
>>16924955 >doesn't make a lot of money >bought a new econobox
Should've just gotten a civic for 3k. Then you wouldn't need two jobs.
Shared car. Not in debt because of that.
>you may only post ITT if your daily has at least 305hp
Busses usually use the same engines as semis. You should be alright.
>yfw my daily is 149000+hp lmfaoing @ plebs ITT
They say Niko Bellic is still on that ship...
Turns better than a ford and weights less than a lexus
why do pushrods cause so much butthurt?
I was expecting a rape van
I will have built the cringiest embarrassment of a /o/ car by summers end. Mark my words
I mean I guess we did have the party van
If it's so unreliable why is it used in planes, desert racing trucks and boats? How is 1700 streetable HP in a package smaller and lighter than a V6 inefficient?

you sound like a cringy faggot
of course no one wants to be with you
It's still a ttb truck.
The same people in this thread talking about how their truck is gud because they've got Dana axles are probably the ones shitting on Wranglers in /ORG/ threads...
But all Wranglers (at least in the last 10 years) of all trims come with Dana axles stock... ... Makes you really think.
The architecture of the TTB axles were all done by Dana. My Ranger has a Dana 35, some rangers have dana 28s, broncos and F150s all have 44s and I believe a "light" duty F250 got a Dana 50 TTB
The Dana 35s that have problems in jeeps are all low pinion, the Dana 44 found in wrangler rubicons (at least the front axle) is quite good. The Dana 35 TTB axle is high pinion and it does not have the same problem of bending tubes found in the solid axle.
A dana axle on its own is not necessarily good but they did make axles that were better than others. The Dana 35 rear axle used in jeeps was one of the worst they ever made.

That is the point I wanted to convey... subtly.

You're an idiot for driving too close.
