Re: What kind of car do you drive?

I drive a '99 0.8L Daewoo Matiz, like this one:


Despite it's small engine (yay for 798 cc!) it's really nippy around town, the easiest thing to park in the world and one of the cheapest cars ever to run. It does nearly 50 combined mpg. And it has 5 doors, which is very good for when I drive around the old ladies (they're not so good at climbing in the back of 3 door cars).

For my next car I would like maybe a Citroen C3 or a Nissan Micra (but the new ones are so ugly...), or maybe even a 1.0L Chevrolet Matiz if I'm going to be mainly town driving.

The trouble with the Matiz is the suspension is a bit ****, so you feel every bump. Otherwise it is lovely, and surprisingly spacious, capable of holding any of the following:
A nuclear family
5 students
4 students plus luggage
1 student plus all her worldly possessions
2 students plus all their books and folders plus most of their clothes plus 2 computers plus a pair of angel wings with little bells on that jingled all the way home.
3,000 mince pies + 2 students + extra pastry + cooking equipment
1 student + the entire CU PA system including 3 amps/loudspeakers, 1 amp, trolley, loudspeaker stands, mixing desks, microphones and numerous cases of cables (but you can't see out the back if you do this).
2 students + 2 guitars + bass amp

I've had a lot of fun with my little car

Re: What kind of car do you drive?

I've got a 2001 black VW Jetta, which I love. I had to learn to drive stick for this car, but it was so worth it. I'll never drive an automatic again!

At the moment we are getting around in a 2 door mitusbishi 4x4.
what I would love is a newer model of 4x4 any brand, would suit me down to the ground.

A Toyota Camery, silver.
Not too exciting, but good fuel economy, and really reliable!

Here's my 03 Honda Accord. Fast and reliable. By the way what ever happened to Mr. Weasley's Ford Anglia?

Re: What kind of car do you drive?

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. Aside from the 134,000 miles on it, it looks brand spankin new: inside and out. I love the thing...... but it's a gas hog... and it's green (my least favorite color aside from pink)...... Oh well, I don't drive far with it and at least people that see me in it don't know that my vehicle is one of my least favorite colors....

Re: What kind of car do you drive?

Red PT Cruiser
I like to call the color "Gryffindor Red"
and her her name is Nox! Noxie for short!
Gyffindor Licence plate frame. She has a Dark Mark window decal on the right side.
Hogwarts crest on her gas lid door.
two stickers on the back (not bumper. smaller and less eyesore-ish lol) one says "Rowling is Our Queen" the other is the ever cliche: "My Other Car is a Firebolt"

yeah....thats my Noxie.
