>talk only about your car, no shit talking other cars (you can probably tell difference between throwing shade and making reference)

i have the better of the lot. i'm drunk and 44 hours awake so forgive inability to remember what engine size is, assume it's the best of the crop cos that's why i dropped 2.5k on this 113K mile'd car. It was showroom model back in '02. It was sitting in back lot of auto lot that the main pontiac dealership unloaded it on.

I love this car. No doubt it's not the fastest, not the nicest, not either even when restricted to pontiacs from that year. It's so fucking reliable though. I've had it for roughly 5 years and the only problem i've had is i tend to wear away the front tires way faster than i should.
Save the tires and brakes, i have thoroughly maintained the engine and have gotten better results from it than the first time i drove it. I never bought ceramic brakes because whenever the time came round i was always about $20 short (i do ALL the work myself. Do inform me if you can find a lesser gap between ceramic and stock)
I've driven this through the mojave desert (i live in a small bit of it, and i've explored the mojave heavily since this purchase), it's been offroad with great aplomb (it never seems to get permanently stuck [save a particularly nasty unexpected yucca]) and i've dusted less clever drivers (they were driving mustangs, focuses, corvettes... i know this car is not faster than them, they were just bad drivers) and i frequently show up the escalades (this is why my front tires disappear at a rate of nearly every 6 months) but
Fact be told: I love how this car handles for a front wheel drive. Given the price i paid, the reliability it's given me (given ample upkeep) and the fact that it STILL will go 0-60 in less than 6 seconds after FOURTEEN years I am unabashedly able to say:
Say what you will about the sunfire. It's ugly, the front speaks speed while the back speaks sedan in comic sans lettering. I've beaten it the fuck up, had a HUGE amount of crashes in it (i like driving fast, i never endanger the lives of others [read: i don't drive reckless if i can see another car shari…

Yeah it's a shame. I myself drive an Opel and am from Europe but I love american cars, I think Buick used to make the cars that defined the perception of american cars by people in Europe for example. And now they just put some chrome in our cars and soften the suspension and sell it to you guys. Way to kill a marque.

>new struts with ebay drop springs

A thousand curses to the steve jobs lookin' mafk' that pulled out infront of heavy traffic slamming his breaks blocking both lanes.. causing me to veer into the curb effectively destroying the axle & totaling my 3G with no damage to his. Saw the damn whites of his eyes, coulda T-boned him if I hadn't taken mine out instead. Best part is his insurance said they wouldn't cover it since I didn't actually hit his car.

I recently squired a car for $500 bucks. It has a v8 engine. A Pontiac grand Prix. I crashed it into my fence unfortunately as it was my 4th time in life ever driving. The left turn signal fucked gulp and is now hanging out. It also does not mark gas mileage and the key is stuck in the ignition. Is there a way to save this car or should I just sell it for cheap and try to find a better one?

It has more to do with how the U.S. and Canada were built with an emphasis on personal cars. Tons of people get around without driving in our urban areas, but if you live in any suburb, small town, or rural area, or if you often visit/work with people from such areas, knowing how to drive well is a valuable skill.

Soooo I'm planning on spending a month hitching and hiking around the Skye and the hi'lands this May.

My plan is to leave from NY and fly into either Edinburgh and start walking or London and get a train or something. I think flying to anywhere that's not a major city is going to be more expensive then ground/ferry transit. Consider a layover in Dublin, that might help you out. I came here to make a thread about Scotland too so I guess we can double up.

My question is thus. I was thinking about just b ring a kilt instead of bring pants/short. My reasoning being that that's what the natives wore, so there is probably some benefit to it. If was in the desert I'd go for a robe and turban, when I wade through the everglades I wear moccasins. Will people think I'm a poser or be offended? I know the scot's are known for their friendliness, but I don't wanna be dismissed as another american tourist either.

I hope you enjoy your trip, maybe well run into one another <3

English oppressor here.
I would say fly to Glasgow or Edinburgh preferably. It may work out much cheaper to London or Manchester, getting up north might be a bit long and costly, but you could make it into a fun trip with some stops along the way. Glasgow should be the base from which you venture to and from Islay.
Both Glasgow and Edinburgh are worth a visit, you can get between them by train. Edinburgh is big on tourism, whereas Glasgow is a much more Scottish affair.
From Glasgow you can Islay, very fast via plane.
A little slower path is using a bus service that runs across the Lochs (maybe check out the highlands here) to Kennacraig where you can get the ferry.
Alternatively, you can have an adventurous island hop over there, get the train to Ardrossan, then the ferry to the picturesque isle of Arran. From Lochranza get the ferry to Claonaig, and from there to Kennacraig, ferry, boom.

In regards to your Kilt, Sorry to spoil the fantasy but use amongst the scottish is actually quite rare, even in the far off parts. It is generally worn ceremonially, for weddings or Ceildhe dancing. If your aim is to blend in you are mistaken. How would you be percieved? I imagine a spectrum ranging from downright ridicule to slightly humoured endearment. But then again, the further you get from civilization the less it will matter.
I think you will find scotland to be a quite contrasting country (even for americans) with big cities, and some of the most rural places in the UK. It has some awful poverty and some awesome wealth, and its inhabitants vary from the very nice to the very nasty (I think the hospitable reputation applies mostly to those living rural).

Scottish lowlander here.
>>33538 speaks the truth.
Kilts are rarely worn unless for a special occasion. Kilts are beneficial for hitchhiking, such as for Scots traveling abroad. It plays in to stereotypical perception of Scottish heritage which is largely romanticised. Go for a kilt by all means but make sure it fits correctly and be prepared to receive attention from all. The weather is very variable. A waterproof jacket is useful considering it rains frequently, on and off. Personally I would just opt for one of those cheap roll-up lightweight jacket in a sack for shoving on when it rains, with warmer layers underneath, otherwise I'd go for a proper coat. Read up on a UK guide for outdoor jackets/clothing, last thing you want is to catch a cold out in the elements.

Ferry transit is not too expensive for most of Scotland. You might be surprised. Buses are a nice way to take in the scenery without moving your ass, these are best booked in advance. Transport in the rural divisions tends to be much more expensive than the populated areas / more frequented trips. They are all way cheaper than the train anyhow. Might want to check out lift sharing sites. Hitch hiking is a fun way to go. Best of luck to you on your stay and adventures. Let us know if you need further info man. Cheers!
