Random car discussion

This sounds like a good name for a thread to talk about random car stuff like flames shooting out of your exhaust or anything else!

i put some money towards retirement, not nearly as much as i should, but a couple grand a year, and have been since i was 19. I need a second job too, my car payment + insurance is 1/2 of my base pay.

Well I do have some money put away for retirement, I don't have kids yet but when I do I'll have at least 18 years to plan for their college. The way I see it is you only live once and you may as well enjoy it the best you can. Much like Elsabor once this round of stuff is on the car thats about it other than maintenance stuff and replacing parts from general wear and tare.

I feel you Rick, been pinching pennies as I'll be out the door to the civi side this year.

As far as car stuff I'd love to have a battering ram come out the front along with wheel spikes, think Roman Chariots, out of my wheels.

i think a bull bar on a 135 would be bad f*cking ass. Im really thinking of throwing in a racing seat for my drivers seat. I would love to get a bride, if i can find one for a good price. Im just worried about finding some mounts.

Ez, go on ebay.de. You should be able to find some good stuff on there. If I find the link I will shoot it to you.
