    Show me your ride.

    Since I just got a "new" car I thought I might as well start a car thread.
    So here's mine:
    A '92 Jetta Mark 3 - in Germany it was called Vento.
    - 1.8 l, 90hp
    - barely any corrosion
    - it had 150k km on the clock
    - best of all - automatic which is rather rare on older German cars but I love it - only downside was that it needed 14 l on 100km because I set it to the sports-setting

    Now show me yours.
    Cheers, Sedi

    2012 Toyota Aygo.
    3cyl / 1l/ 68HP

    The best thing is the low weight of just about 800kg!
    The mileage is about 4,5l/100km (52mpg)

    Great idea Sedi.

    I have a '95 4WD Chevy truck.
    I bought it new and have taken pretty good care of it.
    I drive it to work everyday.
    It just passed 105,000 miles on the odometer.
    Probably half the miles on it were pulling a camper to various locations.
    It's an automatic and has a 5.7L engine.
    Goes great in the snow.

    Had this '06 STI until my insurance doubled when my teenager got a license, so traded it for another winter mobile.....





    ......this PRO-4X with 6-speed stick version of the Xterra by Nissan, built in USA.





    Only the PRO-4X has the white gauges.

    Nice! Keep 'em coming, guys.
    @d2mac
    I first was looking for a Daihatsu Cuore which has the same engine as the Aygo. But I couldn't find one near Bamberg. When buying cars I try to buy locally .
    @yankeexpress
    To bad about the STI - gorgeous car! My stepdaughter is only allowed to drive my wife's car - it's not like she wants to drive mine anyway .
    Cheers, Sedi

    I was eyeing on the Cuore, too.
    But the Cuores with ist too small so that i would have shoulder contact to passengers.
    So i opted for the somewhat wider Aygo (which is btw. lighter in low trim levels)
