My car is a 2002 Mini Cooper. My dad bought it a few years ago, and i started driving it to high school, and will soon take it to NCSU. I don't have a good close pic of it, but i do have a mock-up of it from GT4.....

And a pic of it in my driveway behind my cat.....

It's extremely fun to drive, and pretty gas efficient (well, if you drive it normally.... i usually only get around 30-35 mpg cause i can't help but rev it up all the time...)

My car is a Land Rover Defender 90....I lurve it.

I always wanted one so it's cool to get a car you've always wanted...plus you don't see too many female drivers of it on the roads here!

The pic is not of mine but of an image I found through Google...the colour is the same, mine is a soft top too but the top is khaki not black & for the summer months its rolled up!

Up until last May, I had three vehicles.
I sold my 78 Mark v Diamond Jubilee Edition.
That leaves me with my 2003 Dakota R/T pickup, and my 59 Continental MKIV convertible.
For right now, This is a picture of the 59 convertible.
I am restoring it little by little, when the time and finances allow.
I bought it a litle over a year ago for practically nothing.
It had been stored in a barn for years until I came along.
With any luck, it should be finished by this time next year.
Tomorrow, I will see about posting a few pics of the Dakota.
Bob.

Man, that's an awesome car. :thumbsup:

I've always wanted to have a classic car like that, but alas, i have no money and no skills..... Even if i could find car like that that's busted up and rusted out, i wouldn't even know where to begin to restore it.

Restoring a classic car is not that difficult(even for those with limited skills).
The first thing to consider is what are you willing to do in the restoration process.
I found this car online and as fate would have it, it was only a half hour drive away.
IT had been stored for 22 years in a barn
The car is a one owner.
A woman bought it new in 59 and when she died, her grandson put it in the barn hoping to keep it and restore it someday.
He lost interest in it and put it up for sale.
It needed a lot of mechanical work which I was able to do myself.
I also painted it myself.
The one thing I won't be able to do is the seats.
I did re- do the padded dash and refinished the steering wheel.
As for the custom skirts on it, they are a product of my photo editing program on my computer.
I have been toying with the idea of removing the stock fender skirts(which really don't look much like skirts at all) and have custom ones made by a body shop.
Editing the picture on my computer allowed me to see what the final skirts will look like.
As for buying one of these classics, they are on ebay once and a while.
Only 2195 were ever produced so, they are rare.
As for help in restoring one, there are a few forums online where we help one another with any problems we come up against.
Sorta like this site on computers.
The one thing that you have to think about in any classic restoration is , DON'T HURRY.
The restoration does not have to be finished in weeks, months, or even a couple of years.
These things take time and money.
I only work on mine when I have both.
I am in no hurry.
Right now, it looks a thousand times better than it did the first day I laid eyes on it.
Hope I can get you motivated enough to get involved with rebuilding your own classic car.
You can get one some day, if you really want it.
I decided four years ago I wanted a 59 Continental convertible.
I didn't have any money, but I knew somehow I would raise what I needed if I found the right car, and that is exactly what happened.
I found the car I wanted and asked my boss to loan me the bucks.
He agreed and, and the rest is history.
