    Pretty much an Corolla from the 90s is a nuttily reliable vehicle. I thrashed mine when I had it and it kicked on.

    GET A RED BELT OR DIE TRYIN'.

    You really in Spain?

    The Euro market has some very nice turbo diesel options out there. Killer milage. VW has a decent rep for safety and reliability. Easy to get parts too.

    This is the VW Lupo
    The TDI version gets insane mileage and is very reliable.

    I am a Ford man. Taurus, Crown Victoria, Mustang.

    Ford just unveiled the new 2013 Taurus Police Interceptor. They are going to use this car in the new Robocop movie.

    3.7L, 305HP, basically the current Mustang v6 engine...which while not the GT plant (420HP), is something that will still catch your ass on the road.

    Its actually kinda cool to be buying your first car as a real adult. I had to get something to get around when I was a teenager making part time minimum wage, so I ended up with a shitty 85 Buick Skylark that lasted 8 months before major engine failure.

    My first car was a $500 1981 Chevrolet Impala. Bought at 190k, hit 280k before I left her drydocked in a barn while I left for college. Then she rusted apart at the seams and wasn't drivable by the next summer break.

    But before she died peacefully in that barn, the only repair I ever needed was a new thermostat for her radiator.

    My baby. Baby blue finish, in fact, with a black top.

    Ragged one of these to **** around Ibiza and it did me proud:



    Rag-top Renault Twingo. Feisty little girl with a 1.2l 16v petrol engine. Pick one of these up for about 4000 and enjoy yourself.

    Hahaha, let's all take a minute to remember that Wrabbit has a car that he calls "Black Sunshine".
