huh those newer rims look pretty great on your Sierra!

Its how the truck came when i bought it used almost 4months ago... its begging for an LQ4(Votec 6.0L V8) transplant, but i dislike the "fly by wire" throttle body that is controlled by the PCM that has to be used, i prefer an actual throttle cable for manual control like mine originally came equipt with.

1982 AMC Eagle wagon
Stock Engine. Stock body. Stock interior. Factory delete air conditioning and air injection and no, this car is not mint.

This is the car for the man who grew up wanting a Delorean but had to settle because the monthly payments were too much.

The standard choice of car here: Suzuki Ignis.
My cheap, reliable, versatile coffin. Love it.

Awesome! They are getting harder to find in original condition(at least in Hungary). Most of them are used as a rally car and end up on the junkyard totaled.

This is nice, the SX/4 would be awesome. Do all of these have the select drive? How do you find it?

SX4's are nice, given it's just a Spirit with AWD but I like having cargo space. 😀
SelectDrive AWD was an option until 1982 when my car came out. It's handy if not for economy reasons. It was a $2000 Craigslist buy that became a spendy $9500 repair bill because the exterior is nice and the interior is salvageable but everything else had not been properly maintained in at least a decade, starting with the transmission which gave out and had to be rebuilt within seven hours of getting the keys....

Not that it was easy to find at the date of purchase and still many years later 😉

I loved to drag race latest cars here https://www.google.pl/maps/@54.3933387,18.599 … !7i13312!8i6656
It's an old plane runway,
https://www.google.pl/maps/@54.3803038,18.586 … t/data=!3m1!1e3
and before it was covered with asphalt it was a very holy concrete no modern suspension could match my 😉
100 km/h was enough to leave any latest BMW far behind 😉

Starting at the lights here https://www.google.pl/maps/@54.3964143,18.603 … t/data=!3m1!1e3
they took me under the bridge,
only to get beaten immediately when the concrete started 😉
the opposite road is still in its original condition, removed from main traffic though

I loved the 125p. I remember when we found a derelict 125p when we were kids and I took the emblem home. I still have it somewhere.
Hungary was always a Lada country though because the 125p was roughly 25% more expensive than the Lada 1200 and the same as a Lada 1500.
But the 126 was a huge success for a tiny car. 😀

I have heard that once you drive a Tesla you will never go back. It's like a light bulb turning on in your head and you see the Automobile in a whole new way.
Just think, When the self driving Autonomous cars come there will be no more need for traffic lights, road signs, Highway patrol, tickets, Parking meters, etc.
Everything will be GPS and electronic even FEE's for parking and fast lanes.

The Autonomous electric cars are a Game changer and will change the way we live.

And the Tesla model-3 is NOT to expensive. About $500 month.

Tesla's are ugly and electric cars deprive you of a certain degree of mobility and freedom as many people found out during the fires here in Northern CA. Not to mention unless you're on Nuclear power not any better for the environment.
