Cars We Drive! - Page 1694

post #25396 of 26291
For some reason, women love the Wranglers with no doors. My roommate in college had one and it drove terribly and seemed unsafe as hell, but, then again I had a Sentra and the other guys had equally terrible cars. Kevin's Wrangler was the chick car.

The only competition has to be being James Franco, Tom Brady, or Justin Trudeau. I think a Ferrari F12 wouldn't get you as far with women. Not drinking tonight either in saying that.

Hehe. Wranglers suck. But they do get the chicks. Well, the regulars that no nothing about cars.

Spent part of the morning working of the hangover, then had to be in Cupertino and Mountain View and have a brunch meeting tomorrow. I just want a solid nights sleep. Netflix, ArsTechnica, and SF for the win.

But exactly

I was seeing this girl briefly after grad school when I got my first M car. Blew most of my signing bonus taking my parents to Europe for delivery and the whole deal. I come back and take her out and she goes 'oh my neighbor has one of those' - it turned out it was a pre-LCI E92 328i and I ran the VIN and it was a salvage title. :/

Yeah, she has this hilariously well thought out life goal where she lives on the beach and has a white wrangler. I told her she could sell her current elantra and get one of them, but she wasn't interested because the time wasn't right yet. I was like lady, you live in NH and they're 4WD. It's way better in the winter than your elantra! Then again, her elantra's a 2010 and has like 36k miles on it. The most she's spent on that car is for brakes... I had to take the damn car to get an oil change because she hadn't done one in like 10k miles on dino oil and had to fill up wiper fluid since I got tired of not being able to clean the windshield anytime I drove the car. But I digress....

 

She also saw a mercedes g wagon somewhere and was like "Oh, yeah. Mercedes makes a jeep like car too. Those are nice too."

My Dad's friend (who was crazy) had a Samurai as his daily driver and he used to ride around with a parrot in a special pet seat that was in the passenger seat.  It must have been an interesting contrast since he had a Porsche for nice weather.  I can't imagine owning one of the worst handling vehicles and one of the best handling sports cars...talk about opposite extremes!

Yes, I remember lots of high school and college girls loving Wranglers.  Exotic cars definitely are not chick magnets!  Several of my friends with exotic cars could attest to the fact that women don't care about exotic cars...9 out of 10 people that ask them about their cars or comment on them, are guys.

If you want a car that will get you laid. And is super oddball fun?
-Renault 4GTL
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 75
I have never wanted a customers car so much. (Identical to this one, only rattier)

So crusty, so winning. Was the renault 4.

My buddy with the Modena I poasted a few weeks ago, when he got it
Me "So how fun is it??"
Him "It's OhhhK. Alotta attention. People video you on the highway. Talk to you at the gas station. Some crazy UFC guy tried to race me all the way home and start a fight every stoplight."
Me (dying laughing now) "What, you wanted to be inconspicuous? Chix dig it, yeah?"
Him "I guess.."

Christ that was funny. Lol. Better insight on why folks don't daily these things, even in summer. Still a beautiful machine. I suppose you have to be in the mood for serious attention each and every drive is all.

lol ouch. well try taking a miata on a fire road. a wrangler beats a land rover any day, twice over after 70,000 miles lol when the Disco's had a heart attack...

 

a quick case for the wrangler: a little truck with a drop top, a great platform for mods (cosmetic and performance), one of the only remaining manual trucks gotten (mercedes tranny), incredible resale value, easy to wrench, cheap insurance, can tow within reason. 

 

the 4-door versions have independent front suspension. the rubicons and 2 doors have solid front axles. (i prefer a truck feel)

 

you can drop the windshield for crying out loud! the only competition for a new model wrangler are the Toyotas: FJ cruiser and 4runner. Wagoneers are expensive and old. Land Cruisers are enormous and thirsty. can park the 2 door anywhere, etc etc...

 

to each their own i sez.

In our case, we wore shorts and white t-shirts or something along those line in an un-modded Wrangler. Still got more attention from women than any decent car I've had. All I get now are guys in Mustangs and Corvettes trying to egg me on to a stoplight to stoplight race.

Close second though:

The wranglers can be modded up nice from time to time. The vast majority are stock though. A teenager up the street has all the damn lights extraed along the roof etc and that's about it so sometimes not "modded up nice" too lol. My landlord has some ancient carb TJ I wanna check out. The neighbor when I was a lad had a tan Sahara which looked pretty dope to a 12 year old.

Need not be said but these days I'd prefer the truly original, old ass and ideally deathmobile-ish Bronco, K5/Jimmy, or Ramcharger. Then again I just wanna drive with impunity in winter not rockcrawl. *offroaded the '13 hoe this summer briefly in low4 up in cottage country. Pretty fun for sure. Cost me rebolting the damn sheet metal of the front bumper tho. Clearly Tahoe not= G500 lol.

I loved when that happened in the e46 m3. Back when it wasn't so old in Miami some dude lit me up in a modded 'stang across the 195 to the beach one night. Good for him. The real winners were both of us 'cause no troopers or cops around. Fun times.

I don't own a Rubinacci suit or bespoke Lobbs, so it's perhaps not a fair analogy tongue.gif.

My experience with a wrangler was mixed feelings. -fun to drive, an absolute hoot. And yeah. Didn't even need a lift to change the clutch. Just a table lift to lower the gearbox out. And up again. Easy to fix. nod[1].gif

But, it always had problems. Was a repeat customer. And the front window is limited vision. The leaks and gas mileage put it in the nope box. -fun though.

Loved the FJ Cruiser. Almost kopped.

Saw the NSX up close. I give the new NSX the thumbs down. Looks like an R8 blended with a Civic. No real unique design language.confused.gif
