Re: Modern Amish Transportation

Nice! I always liked the older Ford trucks (through the 90s). Learned Manuel on an 85 Ranger and learned more on an early 90s I6 F250 with the baseball bat shifter and creeper 1st gear. Both were very easy to drive.

Re: Modern Amish Transportation

well, they looked cool, and looked cool being shifted, but didn't they tend to wear out over time? the only one eye ever saw being shifted in person was in my high school friend's dad's 80s (i think it was 80s and not 70s) econoline van. he had the engine hatch opened up more than closed off on that...

Re: 2007 Subaru Impreza STI (JDM)

Re: 2007 Subaru Impreza STI (JDM)

Maybe the new Subaru WRX has the FA engine? To me those cars are a bit "eh" haha My subaru being a JDM has equal length headers, and yeah the sound isn't great. I kinda just want something bigger and non-turbo, the lack of downlow power and response I really miss. yeah, the newer (2015+ in the stat...
