How often do you get zapped /o/ by this juicy boy when working on your car.

>>22412626
It doesn't matter. If the car is turned off there will be no magnetic field stored in them, and touching the two battery terminals with your hands won't cause current to flow through the harness, so there won't be any inductive kickback.

Just like the stories “dude I cut a wire and I got sent flying across the room” or my favorite “we did some electrical work to a building and the doorknob electrocuted me lmao”

I've been driving these since I've been a legal adult but now I need to buy a car. I'm looking at a Toyota Camry 2012 with about 117k miles on it for 6,875 bucks.
Am I retard?

The tank, and the people you do it with. Easily some of the best times of my life
>>22412755
I'd like to, but maybe some other day. I'm leaning towards the Camry because everything I've read and heard about it is that it's simple to maintain, parts are readily available, good mileage, and won't shit the bed. Plus having 4 doors is nice, I know I'm going to be carting alot people around

hey /o/
longtime poster from /fit/ & /sci/ here, just realized /o/ exists. I moved to the West coast a couple years ago and I can finally afford a car. I'm mostly a cyclist, but I want a car to drive to the countryside on weekends for camping/biking trips/festivals and to make the occasional 1000 km trip. I'm looking for something with solid 4x4 that can also be optionally camperized, but I also want it to be acceptable on the highway for when I have to drive between provinces. Also needs to be capable of starting in -20C and preferably old, Japanese, and simple to work on. For a long time I wanted a Mitsubishi Delica, but the demand is really high right now, so they're fucking expensive. I can afford a 90's L400, but they don't like to go faster than 100 km/h on the highway and they don't start easily in the winter. I'd go for the V6 petrol, but they're like $10k, so I've been considering other options. Do you guys know any other cars I should be looking at?

Yeah could be a combination of muds, solar panel, mountain bikes on the back and 2 kayaks strapped to the roof hurting my fuel economy.

Likewise everyone I know with a petrol one always has some Beverley hillbillies type shit strapped all over the roof of theirs when travelling, I think it's just delica life.

Hey /o/, just bought a 99 Corolla and was wondering what modifications I should make to it. It's gonna be my daily driver (I'm pretty broke) and I don't really care about speed or anything, just trying to make it a little goofy for laughs. Already bought a cheap Dixie horn off eBay for it. Any suggestions?

Bros I want to die.
My shitbox is rusted to shit, has electrical gremlins and might need some engine rebuilt because it sounds a bit rough.
I love it do death, but should I say goodbye? Would it justify selling and buying an exact same model, but better maintained?
I want to see it good, but it would cost me arm and leg trying to repair and paint it, rather than just buying another one.
>>
>>22412807
Buy a parts car and sell everything you dont need.
>>
can you afford to fix it?
if you can weld the rust and install a new engine yourself then i doubt its going to be a ton of money.
otherwise i think its foolish to pour thousands into a shitheap that will be worth 1/3 of the amount spent at best.
>>
>>22412875
I think it's cheaper to use this one as a parts car.

>>22412879
Thresholds and doors are rusted away, really bad. God knows what's underneath though.
About the engine it's give or take. It's actually not allowed to do an engine swap by yourself over here so I'd still have to take it to a service and get it re-registered with the new engine series +ᵗᵉᶜʰnᶦᶜᵃˡ ᶦnˢᵖᵉᶜᵗᶦᵒn ᶠᵒʳ ʳᵉʳᵉᵍᶦˢᵗᵉʳᶦnᵍ

I've got my eye on a nice used car being sold by a private seller, but I don't think I can buy it right now without going through a bunch of bullshit because DMVs are closed. I couldn't get the title notarized in person, and then I'd have to get a license plate but only a handful of DMVs are taking appointments, with the earliest dates in June. Has anyone successfully navigated this? Is it really dumb to buy the car and then just have it sit in my driveway for an unknown amount of time until I can legally have it registered?

not long standing normal but it has become somewhat common to leave a tip out for a delivery driver so you don't have to come face to face with them on account of all the corona. of course this isn't accounting for the fact that germs can survive on many common surfaces including money for up to 48 hours, but it's the thought that counts.

Could someone ID this car? I came across it in a convention a fee years ago but the owner wasn't there.

Fucking do it. My first car was a 1989 Ford Ranger (named Gary) similar to pic rel. only with body rot everywhere and more dents than you could count that I bought for 600 dollars with the 4 banger and the 5 speed. It had 217,000 miles when I got it (indicated 17k) I ragged on that shit every day for years and it took abuse like a champ, all I did was top off the transmission fluid and change oil when I first got it, then absolutely no mainenance until the day it died (other than new brake pads/rotors and a set of of rear tires) When I got it didnt expect it to last longer than 6 months, let alone 3 years. It didn't even die, it was just totalled by some bitch in a sorento. Godspeed, Gary. Greatest fucking vehicle i ever owned
