Is that rocker cover off a big red flag?

The seats look nice. The kits to recover are ~$250 fake leather, ~$500 real leather, I've seen original seats go for as much as $500 each. They are really nice seats if everything still works. Trying to be optimistic and realistic here. The valve cover off is not a good sign, I'd ask about that. Don't know why anyone would leave it like that. There's rust, it's hard to see but it's there. Which means there's more rust in places that can't be seen. I was going to offer to go look at it with you but I'm all the way down in Southwest VA. From what I've seen so far, it might be a good parts car, I might offer $1500 for it. That's just me. But I'd really want to have a look at it in person before saying even that. Then again, the other side of that argument is, if you really want one, especially a project, and you have time and or money to put into it, well, they aren't making any more like this since 1985 lol. The prices I'm currently seeing on driveable ones in ok to excellent shape range from around $5k-$15k, and that's probably what the seller is basing his price on
>>
>>22423924
The seats do look pretty nice, would be better all black with less space between the stitching but its probably not top of the line like one of the options you listed. I'm not seeing anything in good shape (drives, no visual rust, clear coat not completely dissipated, manual) for less than like 6k. Just going to say it and I know itll show how retarded I am, I'm looking at the cel-sup as a daily driver since my last car got totalled in a no fault head on collision, someone took an illegal left. Now I have 4.5k saved, am still in positives for monthly income having to take a car ride service twice a day to get to work and have to find a car in a pandemic. As soon as I saw this model Ive needed it in my life. I think I'll have to hire some joe from a not shitty shop in my area to take a look at anything prospective.

>>22424211
Ah yeah cool man, I remember you from the previous threads. I used to daily drive and race an '85 Supra and have owned a few Celica GTS and many other 22RE's. The money is one thing, but the rarity is another. I would think twice before daily driving mine again and I live in the middle of nowheresville. That's just me. They are getting really hard to find.
Best advice I can give you, if you're still able to save money, save up a bit more and get something that you can at least test drive, and or lowball this guy on the grounds that it doesn't run. If he counters with anything along the lines of 'it's a simple fix' then politely ask him to fix it and you'll reconsider giving closer to what he's asking. Still, that dent in the back bothers me. It's worse than it looks. And black leather gets really hot in the summer, I like the color scheme and almost bought the exact same skins to recover mine. This is me btw >>22417767

What do you think about them? They apparently have a car with a corner adapting spoiler. It changes angle depending on the corner so there's more grip driving around bends or corners.

Apparently, many reviewers say the difference in grip is not that noticeable. However, Zenvo also told that the technology is still under research and it'll get better.

What do you think about this kind of spoiler?

Will this idea take off?

Isn't that the car that caught on fire on Top Gear?
Also wasn't it made of steel?

The truckers at my job who drop shit off say they make bank and get to travel. I have no prospects as far as career goes but I don't mind having to travel or relocate, I have no family to take care of, is going through a company like CR England and getting my CDL a good idea? I know nothing about trucking or cars really I just want a decent paying job that lets me leave this godforsaken town once in awhile.

Also I looked in the catalog for a trucker thread but didn't see one, sorry if I missed it.

Robots will never, and I repeat NEVER be the driving force of motor vehicles until the value of life drops significantly in the UN. Even with dependable technology that rarely causes crashes, if someone dies in the accident, that company is FUCKED. Truckers work as amazing transporters and scapegoats. Someone dies in an accident, the trucker is tested and will probably pop hot for an illegal substance, or since every driver skirts daily allowances they'll find fault there.

This is what every faggot says yet the industry and tech companies have said otherwise for ages. Truck Drivers will become more akin to an airline pilot where they monitor the truck on the road and take over where needed.

Why are there so many car cultures in Japan? Of everywhere I've seen, Japan seems to have the most complete representation of every type of car subculture. California kind of comes close but Japan lacks the crowds that actively attack certain types of cars.

I did a lot of body work on my car, I fixed every scratch and dent. It's all ready for paint except this one spot where the side skirt bulges out. I took off the skirt to sand and prime it. I cleaned up and replaced the screws and clips and double sided tape. The potsticker is the body itself under the skirt is bent. It looks like somebody put a jack in the wrong spot and bent it. To get this fixed at a bodyshop would cost a lot of money. The thing is, if I push the skirt with my fingers it will sit straight and cover the bulge. So my idea is to just drill some sheet metal screws into it and make it look as neat as possible. I guess my question is, have you ever done this, what kind of screw would go into the metal under the skirt? Should I drill pilot holes first? Anything else you can think of?

>>22422511
Why cant you just straighten the metal under the skirt? It doesn't have to be pretty, it will stay hidden.
Why did you put the plastic side skirts on before paint?
Why did you prime the fucking rubber seal for the side skirt?
>>
>>22423273
This.
>>
>>22423273
1) i don't know how thick the metal under the skirt is and i don't know what's behind it. i don't have a proper autobody garage. i'd rather not just smash it with a hammer and find out the answers to those questions that way.

2. i put the side skirt on because i want it painted. i can easily take it back off, but how would i get the skirts to the shop to paint them? strap them to the roof? also if i'm going to be riveting or screwing it on, then those should be painted too.

3) i didn't paint and prime the rubber seal. this is a 25 year old car. the guy who owned it before me painted that. he painted everything, poorly which is why im redoing it.

Do you remember this mysterious sports car from movie "The Wraith " from 1986 ?

This was concept car called Dodge M4S Turbo Interceptor .The M4S had a mid-engine, twin-turbo 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine, that produced 400hp, a top speed of 194mph, and a price tag of an est. $1.5 million.

I'm going to share my thoughts on the rotary.
I don't like them, but I don't hate them.
I do think they were overused my Mazda.
It would have been really cool if it was in one model for a limited time and then fucked off.
imo, it should have been in the last generation of Cosmo in its highest trim level, and that's it.
It would have been much more special that way and ruined the RX7 desu.
>>
>>22423392
how the fuck were they overused
>>
>>22423392
rotaries make a ton of power of how large the footprint of the engine is. I have a fc with conservatively tuned 430whp 13b (some examples of 13b's in road race trim make over 800whp, and 13bs in street trim making 700whp) that's been running strong for 4 years, and since the engine is so small, and I've pushed it back further it has the weight balance and turn in of a mid engine car. They utterly lack low end torque and if they aren't meticulously maintained and tuned they blow up in your face. They are great if you are willing to premix your gas and check timing every once and a while. If you don't want to put the time into your car, the systems surrounding them are finicky and fall out of optimal tune relatively fast, making them a hassle for the average consumer. This is ultimately why they fell out of favor. Fantastic sports car engine, and great enthusiast engine. If you don't want a car that fills both those categories its more than likely shit.
