My wife and I inherited this truck from her dad. The transmission was slipping, the brakes wobbled, there was an ever present burning oil smell. We were not enthusiastic about keeping it. Then it got pancaked in a 6-car pileup just outside of Seattle, WA. After some work with a crowbar and hammer we made it to our destination 80 miles away, after which we decided to just take the insurance money to total it and drive it as far as it would go til it died.
That was 2 years ago. Since then it has made the round trip between the SF Bay Area and La Conner WA three times, as well as hauling many tons of gravel, wood chips and masonry for our various landscaping projects around here, not to mention towing around a 1 ton ball made out of bras (long story).
Now the registration is waaay expired, and there’s no way it would pass the WA inspection, not to mention getting a salvage title. We’re going to have to get rid of it sooner or later, and I’m really going to miss it.
That green tin lid jammed in the grill is the mechanism by which I aim the headlight. I guess its about time for another tape-job, too.Images on April 1st, 2011 by drifterz28 | Report This Post | Add to favorites

1991 Toyota Corolla. 196,500 miles on it. I bought it for $250, and I’ve put $200 of new tires, flex pipe, speakers, etc. This is it buried in the snow following the D.C. Snowpocalypse of 2010.

This is my VW Golf back in ’05, my ’06 Trek 2600 and a Benotto I sold in ’09.
I upgraded my Trek with some nice Deore shifters, brakes, et al after some asshole hit me: www.estebanlopez.mx/2011/04/01/bici-atropellada/Images on April 1st, 2011 by Finn | Report This Post | Add to favorites
My ’06 Jetta TDI. Love this car so much. The turbos make a satisfying wooosh on acceleration and she’s averaging 40 mpg with a high of 46 mpg on some long flat highway drives. And nothing beats the double takes I get when I fill her up next to the big rigs at truck stops.Images on April 1st, 2011 by RSIxidor | Report This Post | Add to favorites
2000 Chrysler 300M. It’s had some bruises since then, but I’m too lazy to take the elevator done to the garage to take another picture.Images on April 1st, 2011 by 7footJesus | Report This Post | Add to favorites

2009 Audi A3 3.2L Quattro (US Spec). These are the first pictures I took of her. Installed springs, intake, and exhaust just last weekend. I also replaced the tail lights with European style lights.
