    Aahh my old baby. I must say I do miss her. My golf GTI was a manual and it used to feel like I was driving the car. The Volvo is great and I wouldn't swap her, but although the car has an incredible amount of power, driving in automatic just isn't the same.

    Anyway, it goes without saying... I really like your ride Cyclonite :D

    Thanks! Yours is pretty sweet as well. I agree with you on the control, though. I miss having a manual, but the automatic is nice in the environment I drive in. The amount of stop and go I deal with makes it a pain to drive stick, however fun it may be.

    I went to visit my nephew the other day and he must have taken a picture of my new ride. He has just sent me a bunch of pics of the car which he Photoshopped. Thought I'd share a few of them. The first ones the original.

    The kid's got talent :)
    And good taste of course.

    He does have talent, that's 3D and he's using HDRi lighting to mimic the surroundings of the environment. Very good job on his part.

    I command you to live, thread. LIVE!

    But seriously, who hasn't posted pics of their ride yet? Or has anyone taken a snazzy shot of their ride in the last year or so?

    I forgot all about this thread. I've been busy lately... working my butt off, in fact, and haven't had much time for anything else. (sure beats sitting around NOT working...)

    I managed to get one of these. I'm amazed at how hard it is to find ANYTHING anymore that isn't an automatic, let alone something that size with the engine installed facing the correct direction... :D

    (No, it doesn't have a turbo. Maybe next time.)

    Nice Suby. Definitely get the one with the turbo next time. They're an absolute riot to drive.

    Have you heard that Toyota and Subaru are doing a join project to make a new small RWD coupe? Word on the street is it'll be what the Scion tC should have been from the get-go; a spiritual successor to the old RWD Corollas/Celicas. The new car is speced to have a 2L Suby flat-four and a five-speed and should hit lots at just under $20k.
