NEW CAR!!!!!

Am I immune from squid status if I have more than 2x into my motorcycle than my car!??

Just sold my '03 expedition with the whole fiddy cent gangster package, 22" gun metal rims, 3 tvs, dvd, rear view cam, you name it this thing was ghetto prepped! and what did I get!!!!????

A 2001 Honda accord coupe 4cylinder!!!! RED!!!! haha Its awesome! I look like spaceman spiff driving around in it! I cannot belive the gas mileage its incredible! ANd I realized that as long as I have AC a car is a car.. I'll post pictures of both cars soon. Gonna miss the beast but not the $70 tanks of gas.

If I end up staying in the country I'll get something a little bigger but for now this is perfect for me!!

now you see it my way. a car is a car. i have more than 7x into my bike then my car LOL

i just don't care enough. they depreciate too much and owning a nice car isn't a priority for me. rather take that extra and put it into the bike, business, or stock market

exactly. Car=transportation. When I was in the Army and lived on post (army people are broke) I never saw so many cars with chrome rims, TV's, spinners etc etc..... Everyone wanted to keep up with the next guy, especially at the carwash on the weekends. They'd have a Tahoe on 24's with every bling bling part but it would be parked in the gravel driveway of crappy rental house.

Here, you'd be hard pressed to find a vehicle like that, most just drive something and leave it stock. If someone does want to "floss" they dont bling out Tahoe's or Accords, they drive stock Porches and Mercedes Benz...

Me? I'm pimpin a 4 door galant that i paid 6k for. My wife drives the "good vehicle" which is a totally stock Envoy. They both were washed today......because it rained

What's so special about a 70$ tank of gas ? You'd spend that much to fill up your Honda over here... :wackit :wackit

here ya go, enjoy the read:
http://www.motoroilbible.com/index.html

an little bit from the article:

It's sad, but true. Oil companies and many quick lube operations know that synthetic oils are capable of extended drain intervals but are too afraid of lost revenue to admit it. In fact, here are a few quotes from different people in the automotive and lubrication industries which should illustrate what I mean:

According to GM's Mike McMillan, "Certainly there is technology available to raise the standard and extend the drain interval without compromising engine durability or removing the performance cushion ... Europe is already at a 9,000 mile drain interval and is seriously considering twice that".

Yup I have a 94 Grand Am GT.

Bought it when I was 18 years old. It was my first car I ever bought and I am still driving it.

Had 64,000 miles when I bought it and has over 150,000 now. It makes noises, and it needs break pads really bad. But I don't care.

Bike comes first.
