    Default Any car guys?

    Since I believe I'm about to get very busy (going to be the HAZMAT Officer, NBC Officer, and Safety Officer for my Company) I decided to get the car in shape before I head to HAZMAT class next week.

    2002 Infiniti Q45. 122,000 miles, completely stock. It will most likely stay that way, other than getting tint done in a few weeks. This is my second Q - I had a 1993 back in college. Great cars. Fast, comfortable, great cruisers. Drove 20 hours from Gordon to Sill, and another 13 from Sill to MN, than 13 back down to Sill. Didn't once get uncomfortable.

    One application of Meguiar's Ultimate Compound, one application of Meguiar's Ultimate Polish, and two coats of Meguiar's Caranuba Wax. Meguiar's liquid leather conditioner on the interior. Nice clean car.

    my baby.

    97 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Originally an oxidized dark green, I got it painted black almost 2 years back, still holding up pretty well aside from a few places where rocks have chipped it.

    I love black cars. I know it's a pain to keep clean, and the car gets hot, but there isn't much that looks better than a deep, glossy black.

    I agree completely. When i was first going to get my car painted, it was between this copper orange color and black. Dad persuaded me towards black. But....Mines is way overdue for a wash/wax now that i look out my window at it.

    Nice rides, guys! No pics to share, here - but my first car was a 1974 Triumph TR-6 roadster - man, I wish I still had her!

    My daily ride is a '99 Harley Sportster, 883cc bored out to 1200cc (and thus hotter than a stock 1200), S&S Super carburetor, straight pipes, and mini beach bars - a nice way to do my daily commute, and 40 miles per gallon at these gas prices doesn't hurt! Plus, I can ride her for a couple of years and still get out of her just about what I paid - a win/win situation!

    Yes, Nissan makes great cars. Here's my Altima in a Colorado rest stop when I drove to Kansas from California. 24 hour drive and not a single problem.

    LOVE the WRX and the Gixxer. I have to keep myself from looking at 600\750s...

    Altamas are really solid cars, Nissan builds theirs to last, that's for sure. My last Q had 250,000 on it when it finally gave up on me (ended up being the MAF, could've fixed it...) :-(

    Can I post my grocery getter? SXT, two toned seats, DVD player, back up camera



    I will follow it up with a 2009 Honda CBR 600RR to redeem myself.
