Ok, lets see an example of a pretty looking car that is affordable to the typical family man.

Well an Opel Vectra or a Ford Mondeo are reasonably affordable cars, they're also quite practical as a family car (well small families anyway) and to be honest, they're quite good looking as well.

Does anyone else see a similarity between the Saturn Aura and the Opel Vectra?

yes

some cars are used by other companies like how the Pontiac GTO IS the Voxhaul Monero (can't remember how to spell it.)

There's no need to bump a club JUST to say that it's dead. Seriously. That's the kind of poor-quality posting that kills a thread in the first place.

If you want to bump a club (or any thread, for that matter), then at the very least make sure you're doing it for a GOOD REASON. I've seen this club bumped by you a number of times for no good reason whatsoever other than to add +1 to your post count or complain about how nobody else is posting.

Some clubs just don't have the momentum that others do. Accept that, and move on. In time, people will either post something interesting OR the club will be forgotten. Either of those occurrences are perfectly acceptable outcomes.

I shouldn't have to make these kinds of posts in C&C, but if I catch you bumping threads again for no reason, you will be banned, seeing as you have a history of needless thread bumping.

Good day.

Well, seeing as there's new car pictures WITH some new opinions, I figured I'd add this beast!!:

Mitsubishi Double Shotz concept car

This car was created by Mitsubishi Motors in some kind of contest known as Hot Wheels Designer Challenge to see who could make the best Hotwheels concept car.

Gary Ragle sez dis car combines concept of the Lancer Evolution with the fun of hotwheels!!

Dare I say "BEAT THAT"?

Nah, I won't dare.

I don't even know why I have developed an affection for the Fiat Florino Qubo becuase I'm not usually a fan of those type of cars. What I like about it is that it goes 62.8 miles per gallon, which is very fuel efficient and the CO2 emissions are 119g/km which means you only pay £35 road tax instead of £120+. I would to own a Qubo in a few years time, when the value has depreciated and to avoid heavy taxes on more polluting cars.

What Green Car?

Not a bad choice for an economy vehicle.

Well in terms of having external engine parts I may not be able to top those, but in terms of its space-age looks (lol, it looks a bit like a Lambo mated with a spaceship) then this Ferrari concept car is absolutely stunning.

Here goes nothing...

Interesting.. nice paint color. Silver to me, means advanced, new, sleek(I think), anf futuristic. Unless of course, it's a car I've seen AT LEAST 150 times.

Yeah, I kind like the car above that one. :\

I like old Renault series of cars. Specifically the Renault 11 and Renault 5.

Yes, I know I haven't posted in ages. But I'm here now, so on with the show.

I found this car while searching through the internets trying to find a suitable first car for myself. I'm kinda into the old utes, so forgive me if it isn't the European concept car as previously posted by the other members. Still, I appreciate the model, age and very possible chick magnet abilities of the 1974 Holden Kingswood HQ.

Also, please note the custom plates that I poorly MSPainted on.

Renault are a huge car manufacturer, I can not believe you haven't heard of them.

Well, I haven't heard of them, because I never see those on the roads, or in video games (my two sources for seeing cars). And besides, there are very few 90's cars still on the road (besides Toyota).

They make cars under the name "Dacia" - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renault_San dero

But they also make cars under Renault, such as the Laguna, Mégane and Scenic.

Are you pricing them, or is it one of those, "oo, I'll post this and forget about it the next day" situations?

Muscle car worthy indeed. If the laws in NSW would allow me to drive a V8, this would definitely be a muscle car.

I was dead set going to buy this. Good price, low km's for age and automatic since I can't drive manual. But the 'rents said that V6 engines drink too much fuel, and I don't need a ute because I'm not a tradesman.

Anyone know of any decent four door V4s?

Dude, ok, lets put it this way, you're in a bouncin club and this really hot chick wants you to take her back to her place, but, oh no! you took a taxi there, so you use her car, which turns out to be a Ferarri F430. You're saying to yourself, lucky me, but oh no! it's a stick. What now? No date, no car, no fun 0__0

Nope. Well, I know the basics and whatnot, but I'm more worried about actually getting a license to be honest. I'll be able to start focusing on manual driving in a year, when I get my P2 license.

Yeah I guess. The four door thing isn't necessary. Also, for the sake of conversation, does anyone agree with me that the 300ZX is sexy? Link

Also, currently looking around for Mazda 323 Astina's similar to this model or possibly Nissan Pulsar's similar to this. opinions?

Hey guys, just popping round to see how things are going, and I'm glad the club is still going fairly well, even if it's a bit inactive. Stuff's no better on my end, so my visits to NG will probably remain infrequent for the forseeable future. Good luck to you all :)

Just lurking around and seeing this, what a hilarious example. You never know, it could actually happen one day.

Also, i didn't do my license in manual, i did it auto, but my first experience driving manual was in a tipper truck. Since then i've been able to drive half decent manual, even pulling them fancy shuffles and whatnot you see in these Fast And The Furious movies.
