Dude, public transportation.

It takes over 2 hours to commute to my work on public transport and only 30 minutes by car. Gas cost round-trip: $6, Light rail ticket $5.50. Not worth it.

Electric bicycle. It's faster and not as exhausting.
I hope you have electricity.

Or use one of these pic related ******* . Not as expencive than a car but faster than a bicycle. But I don't know if you need a license for these. In Germany you can drive them till 25 km/h without license.

I spent about 10k on getting a license for these, and now I'm 18 and have to spend another 20k just to get a drivers license for car

electric scooter license is more expensive than my car? Seems legit.
#89 to #72 - moggycore (11/10/2012) [-]
Well, 10 and 20k sounds about right when put into the right curency. In Norwegian Kroner that is about spot on, so don't really think you understood him right. It was an rather unnecesary story for him to tell though.

I just did some calculating, and the current gas price here in Germany is 7,70 Dollars per Gallon. (In euro this would be about 6,60, at a price of 1,60 per Liter.)

Anyone up for a little international comparison? I'd be interesting to compare the current gas prices.
User avatar #96 to #93 - anthonyh (11/10/2012) [-]
In the US, it's pretty much anywhere from 3-4 dollars/gallon. Where I live, it's currently $3.60.

In minot north dakota gas is 3.40 (dollars) a gallon, and I drive a 1975 Cadillac and proud and getting 8mpg in town.
User avatar #108 to #93 - lordoftheflies (11/10/2012) [-]
Wow that is a lot. In the Illinois and more than likely, the rest of the US, it's about $3-4 per gallon. In liters, it's $0.79-1.05 per liter.

Oh god, those words are cardinal sin to car guys. Toyota Corollas and **** can go, but vintage iron is god-tier in circles like mine. Who else drives a car that's going to be 50 years old this January and loves every second of it? Cars shouldn't be about getting you where you need to go, in my book, it's the drive there that matters.
I am fully aware I'm weird, but all car guys are like me
#61 to #31 - autoxx (11/09/2012) [-]
I know what you mean about the drive but I go about it a different way, I believe in the concept of "disposable cars".
My last one was a beat up 93 mustang (not 5.0, it was a beater) but it was great because in the winter I never had to look through the windshield. Drifting every corner, every day makes you a lot better driver and if you botch it... Go buy another one!
The drive is all that matters, although it is hard to convince a girlfriend that it is a "great car"
User avatar #69 to #61 - chewythewolftwo (11/10/2012) [-]
Oh god yes this is true.
I had a 1996 GMC Sonoma pickup at work, a little 4 banger and a 5 speed. 170,000 miles on the clock, but I learned to drift in that truck. Jumped it a time or two, blew out the ball joints a time or two, took it up to 110 on some roads around town, and when it would rain, I'd hit the pavement and slide the **** out of that little truck. Sure, it was a huge POS beater, but good god I would have bought it before they hauled it away to another job site without me.
#116 to #69 - autoxx (11/10/2012) [-]
I have a sierra 2500hd now, there are only 2 things I don't like about it.
1. Automatic transmission.... not cool...
2. It's just a little too nice. I still drive hard on snow/ice but there is that little bit of caution because it is worth so much.

...3. Fuel is about $130 to fill it.
User avatar #118 to #116 - chewythewolftwo (11/10/2012) [-]
Ahh, my uncle has one of those, except he's put a little money in to the go-fast side of things.
My next car (To replace my Taurus DD) is almost guaranteed to be a Subaru Forester XT with a 5 speed. So basically a WRX (Not an STI) with a bit more space. Having driven an actual WRX a couple times, I will tell you that there is not much that can beat the fun for the cost, not counting fox bodies and **** . But I'm a New-England boy, so all wheel drive is beautiful for a DD.
I drive too hard all the time, my Taurus had 58k on the clock when I got it, and it's up to 66 now and it's showing signs of issues I think. I'll start it, let it idle for a moment, put it in reverse and then it just straight up dies and won't start for awhile. Done it twice within the last three days. I'm thinking it needs one of those late 1990's Taurus SHO V8's stuffed in it. Because **** practicality and enjoy torquesteer straight in to the wall over and over
User avatar #37 to #31 - dedaluminus (11/09/2012) [-]
All car guys are NOT like you. Sure, I'd love to restore and have an old Chevy Impala or something like that, but I love my 1988 Corolla wagon. 30 mpg, selectable 4x4, 348k miles and still going on the original engine and transmission.
User avatar #40 to #37 - chewythewolftwo (11/09/2012) [-]
Well that's different, I enjoy the older ones for their indestructability, if you can go that far on it (I had an 87 Cadillac Coupe Deville with 270,000 Miles on it) then it's impressive. Those late nineties beigemobiles (I'm including some fords and chevys in there too) are pretty dull for the automotive world. At least the older ones have character
User avatar #41 to #40 - dedaluminus (11/09/2012) [-]
It looks terrible enough to not be stolen, but just keeps on going. My sexy car is my offroad rig; it's a 1973 diesel landcruiser in dark blue. Not a ding anywhere on it (after I beat them all out) and 973k miles. On the second engine/transmission.
User avatar #43 to #41 - chewythewolftwo (11/09/2012) [-]
Oh, you lucky bastard. I've got a friend who just picked a similar one up in green. My daily is a 1995 Ford Taurus, but it's only got 66,000 miles on it. It's the sport, so it's nimble and pretty quick, but lately it's been giving me problems, I'll start it and then it will die shortly after I get rolling, something fuel related. Makes me want to replace it and sell it off on someone unsuspecting while it still looks mint.
User avatar #33 to #31 - ManInKilt (11/09/2012) [-]
What year is it?
Restore it to stock by the numbers. Whatever it is....
#39 to #33 - chewythewolftwo (11/09/2012) [-]
It's a 1963 Ford Galaxie.
I could, but this one is the most common galaxie built, over 200,000 with this engine and transmission and stuff, so it's about as plane jane as it can get. So it's getting a bit of a hot-rod rebirth, little more power, modern running gear like good (And more importantly, safe) brakes and suspension, things like that. Something I can drive every day, hell, drive across country, and have no problem with. And turn heads doing it. I ****** love old cars.
<My truck, a 1976 F250.
INB4 small penis jokes, I know I know. But I got the truck like that, so it's not my fault, haha.

Nice talkin with a car guy.
I've got a couple.
A 1978 Dodge Magnum XE, a 1979 Dodge Diplomat, and a 1967 Plymouth Valiant.
Yes, I'm a Mopar guy.

User avatar #119 to #117 - chewythewolftwo (11/10/2012) [-]
Ohhhhhh, Valiant, lucky bastard. Slant six by any chance? I have the weirdest boner for building the **** out of a slant six and building a leaning tower of power out of it, maybe even turbocharged because ************* .jpg.
I also kind of like Diplomats, and to be honest I'd forgotten all about the Magnum's existence but holy **** is that ******* cool. I'm jealous. I'm kind of really in love with that front-end
User avatar #121 to #119 - ManInKilt (11/10/2012) [-]
diplomat's got one too, with a four barrel.
User avatar #120 to #119 - ManInKilt (11/10/2012) [-]
yup.
You know the movie/car Supervan?
That was a dodge Sportsman base and it had a slant six.77 I believe...
User avatar #122 to #120 - chewythewolftwo (11/10/2012) [-]
Oh really? I never knew that haha, that's kind of awesome.
I'm always going to be a fan of oddball stuff, one of the next things I want to grab is a Ford Falcon (Any of them, 4 door, wagon, coupe, whatever) with preferably a slant six. And I want to SLAM it. I've got a buddy with the lowest static dropped car in my state, and it's a Ford Focus and I've decided I'd like something like that in an older form. Sure, it's completely impure in the hot rod world, but it's something different. Because who else would be driving an old Falcon that handles like a go-kart (Mind you I wouldn't go stupidly frame draggingly low with it) and gets 30mpg? I'd love to be that guy.
User avatar #123 to #122 - ManInKilt (11/10/2012) [-]
In my opinion (and that is the opinion of a car guy who walks 2 blocks out of his way to see whatever old car I saw close)there are two acceptavle reasons for hot rodding(excluding chop-tops and cut up bodywork)
1:the car is pretty roached and parts would cost more than it'd be worth
2:its a painfully common car and everyone and their kid brother has one.
#124 to #123 - chewythewolftwo (11/10/2012) [-]
Yeah, I know how you feel. I've got a 1930 Model A out in the barn, and it's 100% complete in disassembled form. However, EVERBODY hotrods an A. So if I'm building mine, (not until several years down the road, after the Galaxie and F250 are perfect) I want to take the original 4banger, and build that. Because almost NOBODY builds the 4bangers. I've seen one that someone had a small Eaton supercharger for. Do you know how cool a 4banger with a supercharger in an A will be? Won't be as fast or loud as a V8, but it will be ****** cool.
I've also got a buddy with one of those M35A2 General Army trucks, and he wants to put a Detroit Diesel engine in it at some point, which would also make quite the awesome loud rod.
<Also want an old tow rig like this, badly.
User avatar #125 to #124 - ManInKilt (11/10/2012) [-]
Barns are awesome. If only jersey burbs had room for them...
Anyway, I think the coolest A's are restored ones because NOONE DOES THAT even though they're beautiful restored...
Coolest rods, though, are the old kind of rods where they'd take an A or a T or something in the fifties and shave fenders and stuff off and supe up the engine a ******** . Love those...
User avatar #127 to #125 - chewythewolftwo (11/10/2012) [-]
Ah, I've got family down there, I can feel for you, My uncle has a trio of 55 Chevys, two coupes and one truck, quite the nice set.
And yeah, you're right, I'm just so much more.. Redneck need for speed than that, haha. Plus mine was actually cut up at some point way back when like a bunch of them were, the rumble seat was cut out and a truck bed was built in. So it's already not an original car, so a unique hotrock pickup model A would definitely be out there. I love that 60's retorfutureistic style, too, that's exactly why I bought my Gaiaxie, the whole rocket ship theme throughout the car is glorious
User avatar #128 to #127 - ManInKilt (11/10/2012) [-]
Family is where the best cars are.
Grandma's is a 1972 Plymouth Scamp and Gramp's is a 1971 Chrysler Newport, among the last of the BIG Chryslers.

Ohh, very nice. My great grandfather had a Fury VIP for a long time. My grandfather has a 1949 Ford Business coupe, and we just finished an absolutely Flawless 1940 Ford pickup. The flathead underhood was built by none other than the world record holder for top speed on Bonneville Salt flats with a flathead. So it's got balls. It's gorgeous, as well, I love it. My whole family is ford, I have no brand loyalty myself though because I'll take anything old I can find cool enough to drive.
User avatar #132 to #130 - ManInKilt (11/10/2012) [-]
