My parents' car, but it's the car I drive the most.
Image
1997 Honda Civic 1.6l manual, has 194k miles, still running strong. Only non-stock thing is the sound system, Pioneer headunit and rear speakers, no idea what the front speakers are/if they're stock. Mileage is in the low 30s in city, high 30s/low 40s highway, though I hit 65mpg on one tank, see my sig for more.
The only non-human powered vehicle I own is a 350w 36v Boreem Jia electric scooter. Bought it for $15 at a thrift store, just had to get past using a key and charge the poor batteries.
Image
Yes, I know it looks ghetto. It is. It's also uncomfortable.
As soon as I get a job, I'm buying my own car. I'll probably get a '90s Ford Escort wagon (manual). MPGs, decent cargo room, cheap, and, uh, that's all there is to it. :lol:

Anything has to be better than the Ford F-150 I drive now :P

It isn't mine though, I share it with my dad.

If said F-150 is 4wd and a beater, you're using it wrong if you don't like it. They are best enjoyed off the road. My friend has a "91 F-150 and its a blast offroad. Though, if its 2wd or needs to stay nice looking, continue complaining. :wink:

Mazda 3's are pretty cool. I've ridden in one, seemed to have a good amount of power. Just a bit too rich for my blood, and no wagon option.

My parents own them all, but I get to drive them really whenever I want,

1997 or 1998 Ford F150 (the first run of the second to newest re-design)
2000 Ford Windstar LX Sport. It has a spoiler!
200_ Chevy Astro, AWD, so it makes the mud season (spring) and winter a lot easier.

Wow, 2 vans and a truck. No cars.... I'll fill in info and pictures tomorrow.

Just got this not too long ago:

Love this thing to death. Front/rear AC, 8 person 3rd row seating, 5.4L V8... it's a beast. It even gets better gas mileage than my last vehicle.
