    I'm just curious~ Although loads of us here on SF arent really of age to 'have' a car or maybe not even a licence- who does have a car? (or had a car at one point?)
    What type of car or vehicle do you own, what do you like, any pictures of your vehicle?


    Right now, I can not drive. My license is suspended until I have my doctor's permission and a clean bill of health to get it back.
    I owned a car at one point... just a little shitbox. I liked it alot. I sold it before I went to college because we needed a first/last month deposit cheque and neither of us had the money saved specifically for that.

    Here's a photo of my shitbox!


    My family (on dad's side) also own a few boats, snowmobiles and ATV's. They're bush-whackers, obviously. lol

    I really like compact cars. I would love to be able to afford a hybrid; but I doubt I'd be able to get one until I can get someone elses used piece of shit one a few years down the road. haha
    I prefer import over domestic. sorry. :p
    I was taught to drive stick before I ever drove anything automatic.... the reverse switch-over was awkward... I found myself reaching for the shifter all the time; meanwhile there was nothing there. :lol!:

    Well, I used to drive when I was suburban in Alberta, owned two cars under $1000, and then moved to urban Toronto and switched to a bike. I'd like to get a motorcycle but that'll have to wait until I can work.

    i stopped counting, while i have my license just about 10 years ive had more than 20 cars. no i did not wreck them, i loved selling and buying them. mostly with a small profit but not allways, i guess it was a hobby. ill look for pics.i was (and still am) a huge mercedes diesel fan (124+w140) and still own a w123 300diesel atm. btw Kitty that should be a honda civic end 80's, those things were pretty good!

    I hate cars. I hate being in them. I refuse to get my license, and walk everywhere instead. Places that are further away, I bus.

    Then consider yourself lucky that you don't live in a city with one of the worst public transportation systems in the developed world.

    I won't be driving until I can get my learners in January, but when that comes around i'll be driving a 67 hillman. Parents bought it a couple of years ago and we basically got 1 complete car and another cars worth of parts for 2000 bucks :laugh:.

    I don't have a car simply because my sense of orientation is abysmal. Seriously, i would lose my way in games like Grand Theft Auto and it has a map for crying out loud, so imagine real life... lolx

    I'm supposed to try to get my permit in a couple of weeks.
    I don't own my own car and I really don't ever want one.
    I dread the thought of driving and wont hardly ever drive except for emergencies.

    Oh, I do... the transit here is actually quite nice, except for the billions in taxes Translink levels against us.

    Those taxes must suck but at least you live in a nation that is smart enough to invest in rail and not more bloody useless roads.

    Yeah, I don't really bitch about them, because I benefit so much. It's not like a lot of the things that the money they extort are wasted on. You are totally right - they wanted to spend like 2 billion on some perimeter road that would have gotten maybe 100 cars traffic a week.
