when i was in Mineral Wells, TX i was surprised at the amount of firearms 'normal' people have but i never experienced unsafe or threatened by them.

I actually didn't realize that they sold American pickup trucks like that over there. If the Neon is considered a mid-size sedan, what do they think of cars like the BMW 7-series and other cars that large? Are they uncommon? Well yeah but usually the dealer only imports the smaller pickup trucks (1...

Regarding hatchbacks, I'd say, at least from what I've seen in my life, the Golf/Rabbit was and is still very popular here, so the Europeans at least got that right. Well space is more of an issue here. :P My brother has a Ford F150 heavy duty dual cab and he can never fit in just one parking spot....

i would say add a .5" strip on both ends of the top board. This way you can sort of secure the car whilst on these ramps.

Oh yeah forgot to answer the question. Grammar technicalities aside, I think the riciest mod has to be a fake blow off valve. The fact that those even exist saddens me.

wow, that´s a lot. And people complain about taxes here... It's even worse: Cars in NL are roughly 25% more expensive than in Germany due to additional taxes based on mileage of the car.

funny build but definitely a more honest deal than in NL. Basically if you get a company care here the government sees it as additional income and you have to pay tax over the extra income. So cars are divided into three categories according to CO2 exhaust: 14%, 20% and 25%. The percentage is for ca...

maybe i was a little unclear, so here's the deal. When i go company car i get to choose: 1) pay tax but can drive the car unlimited miles. 2) not pay tax but limited to 500 miles A YEAR for personal use. Additional tax for option 1 would be about EUR 200,- a month. Keeping my car costs EUR 100,- jus...
