    What do you drive in real life?

    I've been out of the RC game and off the forum for a few years now and I remember these threads being fun and now I can finally contribute (I was too young to drive when I was really into RC). Here's my 2004 Nissan 350Z, I've owned it for just over a year now.

    I dd a 1989 Toyota pickup truck that's sitting at 1/4 million miles. Just replaced the factory clutch at 214k. I've pretty much always used Toyotas for daily beaters had about 15 1980-1994 Toyota trucks. They are tough little things that will last a very long time if taken care of.

    2004 Mustang 40th Anniversary. Only the 3.9 but it runs great and only has 40K on it. Getting ready to trade it in for a GT soon.

    Still have my 2012 200 Touring V-6 as my daily





    I did get new tires put on it and had the alignment done a few months back. Got rid of the lousy but well used, factory installed 225/50TR18 Eagle LS2 for a set of then, brand new to the market BF Goodrich Sport Comp 2 All-Season in 235/50ZR18. Made a massive improvement in how the car drives in every way possible so far, especially in the wet!

    Let's see if anyone remembers this...

    It's not my daily just a project to take to car show's

    1975 Honda Civic CVCC. I've done almost all the work on it, the only two things I didn't do was the actual paint and the buffing after I color sanded it.

    My daily is a 1988 Honda CRX SI ...a beater if you like!

    Nice. We stuck a 390 in one and raced it for a few years.
    One of the coolest video clip I have ever seen was from a Gremlin.
    At the burn out box, it leaped up on 4 wheels from a dry hop. Still can't figure out how it did it.

    Wow, been decades since I last saw one of those Civics out innthe wild (nearly the same with the CRX too, come to think of it!), things would rot out so fast here back then that many didn't last past the mid 80's.

    Yup, only way I buy a Caprice is with the LT1! Bought it with alarm/remote start and flowmaster super 44 deltaflow mufflers.

    I think they are loosely based on each other, your basic full size full frame V8 family car. I love these big old cars, they drive sooooo nicely, and really easy to work on.

    The gen 2 LT1 was one of the hottest production engine at the time. Thanks to Jon Moss. Turning a taxi into a fun ride.
    Holden was part of GM (could b still). Remember they brought the GTO back in the early 2000's with a LS engine in a Holden platform.
