    That's exactly what i was thinking untill the day it drove into the garage :D It was in need of new brakes, and if new brakes are installed, a test drive is required.. :) Installed front brakes, and a month later the same car came back for the rear brakes, so i took another roll :) It was awesome, my boss didn't complain i was away for a half hour test drive because he knows i love aston martin.
    Aston Martin is my favorite car manufacturer by far. I am supremely jealous.

    You own a Boxster and you don't know how to spell the name, don't have a picture of it, and you think it's a coupé?

    cool

    Edited:

    Btw, that Boxster in the pic isn't a 2003 model.

    GAZ Volga 24-01 same as this:

    RWD, 1.5 tons without power steering. It's hard to drive in tight spaces. Also it stalled in 5 seconds at idle and had almost no brakes. Drove it like a boss in my village. *Bad To The Bone playing on the background*

    Granddad sold it for scrap metal :(

    Renault R5 Gt Turbo

    It's really fast, but it's not really comfortable and here in Italy a litre of gasoline costs 1.68 euros (about 2.16 $). My brother owns it.

    Seat Ibiza Cupra TDI

    It's a pretty nice car, but i drove it only once, so i don't remember much about it.

    poor car :((
    Poor car? He bought it for $600 off of some stupid kid who'd blown the motor. Pulled the motor, did a full rebuild, including the turbo, stripped, sanded, and powdercoated every single visible part in the engine bay. Revamped the whole suspension, poly bushings all around, coilovers, sways. Repainted it stock cherry red in a storage unit. Reupholstered the entire interior back to stock by hand. Took him two years, and a lot of time, sweat, loads of money, and dedication.

    Poor car? He breathed life into that thing.

    I've only driven three cars in my time. None of which are particually interesting I'm afraid. (These are identical cars to what I drove)
    My Dad's hired-for-the-week 2002 Vauxhall Corsa 1.2 (Which I drove at about 12, and when I look back I've realised he'd been driving without a licence)
    Also attempted, and failed to bump start two others of these.

    2009 Peugeot 207 1.4 (My learner car)

    2003 Hyundai Getz 1.3 GSI (My 18th birthday present!/family hand me down)


    All of these cars, I've driven on L (Learning to drive/student driver) Plates. Even though I've only driven my Hyundai with a full licence.

    Yes, my mother made me drive with L Plates despite having a full licence, because she had no faith in me. :/

    My father's Tesla Roadster is odd but extremely fun to drive. Though, no one let's you pass through the passing lane because they can't even hear you.

    Someone on the internet also captured a nice photo of it on the highway and decided to upload it:

    2009 Pontiac G8

    and an 07 GTO


    Edited:

    I fucking loved the G8, it was fast and handled like it was on rails. It was a GXP model too. The GTO had an LS7 in it with a blower. Yeah, you could figure out it was fuuuucking fast.

    You own a Boxster and you don't know how to spell the name, don't have a picture of it, and you think it's a coupé?

    cool

    Edited:


    Btw, that Boxster in the pic isn't a 2003 model.
    I'll get an actual picture of the car come Monday if I can get a hold of a decent camera from my brother. The image I had found was the result of a 5 second Google search for a white 03 Boxster; I knew it didn't look right, but I was tired and I wanted to get the post out. Sorry if I offended anyone with my poor posting etiquette. See, I actually just recently bought the car off a guy for right around $10,500, so I haven't exactly owned it for very long. I just needed a car for less than 12, looked around a bit, saw the Porsche, and said "why the hell not". Everything checked out as working condition, though the battery could probably be swapped out for a new one and the tire treads are worn down a bit.

    I needed to go back a refresh my bodystyle definitions. Oops. Would the car just be called a convertible? That feels so cliché and vague. Maybe roadster? I've no clue.

    And yeah, I can't explain that spelling mistake.

    Not really a car but a few years ago I got to drive a 3 wheeler ATV like this one -


    Since the ban in '88 they're getting harder and harder to find. The thing was tippy as fuck, like you go around a corner you better be ready for it to be on two wheels. It always keeps you on the edge which made it a hell of a lotta fun, shame idiot parents in the 80's were putting their 10 year old kids on them then wondering why it killed the kid 20 minutes later.

    Quite recently I was able to drive a 2012 Mustang GT at a car show. I have never before driven anything more exciting than a 2005 V6 Jeep Cherokee. It. Was. Glorious. Hitting 70 in a 40 zone in the time it takes my daily driver to hit even hit 40 (1999 Honda CR-V) was the most fun I've ever had in a car. If you can tell, I don't get the opportunity to have a lot of fun in cars...oh, and that sweet american V8 soundtrack. Needless to say, I loved the Mustang before, but now...

    I think that's most of the cool ones. Most were brand new and not even plated. I got to drive a lot of shit-boxes too, even an older SLK that wouldn't change out of first gear

    I've only saw one damn g8 here, and it was like, only a base model. I want to get a G8 GXP Someday, would have loved to get the G8 ST (Holden Ute), but then, they weren't made here. So I'm sad.
