    Without getting into Miles per Gallon what kind of cars does everyone ride..I like the older Jeep Cherokees..had three a couple of weeks ago..now have two ..95 and 96 Cherokee Sport 4.0..well maintained and look like new (almost)

    I really like old cherokees...

    I have a b16a powered 91 honda crx, a k20a powered 2005 civic si, a 2005 honda fit, a 2009 jeep wrangler, and a 91 galant vr4 (which has a 500 hp motor that I have had sitting around for about 2 years now... someday I will get around to putting it in).

    LOL... Its a cool car but UBER complicated. It was the pre-runner to the modern mitsubishi evolution. Very advanced for 91... it has awd, all wheel steering, turbo/intercooled, and a cast iron 2.0 liter dohc.

    To tell you the truth I think I might be in over my head with this car. But someday I will get around to piecing it back together.

    I never thought I would be driving a four door four cylinder economy car (96 Prism- (toyota). I'll run it for years.
    It displaced an 83mustang conv 6cyl driver, now put away - (wear out the Prism first) and the turbo dunebuggy (which comes out in 5 months), is next to it.

    Copied straight from the other forum lol....

    This my 87 Toyota Soarer fitted with a 1jzgte and r154 5spd. Its currently pretty stock at the moment due to a road worthy and really only has a twin entry intake, Trust front mount cooler and a Kakimoto turbo back exhaust as far as engine mods goes. I estimate around 250rwhp in this guise. It isnt going to stay looking or performing like this for long though :D


    This is my other ride. Its a 62 Holden EJ Special and is totally original but does need a little tidying up in places. The original 138 grey motor which is shifted via a 3 speed manual column shift box runs beautifully.

    lol cheers. They are eligible for import and registration in Australia under the 15yr rule which basically means any car built before 1989 can be imported and registered with only minor compliancing. So there are a few getting around Australia but still not that many. Check out z20soarer.org if you are a fan :D

    BTW your vr4 sounds like a beast. A mate of mine who lives up the road used to own one. Quite nice.
