I love seeing my car show up in mangas.
I'm happy you're proud of your car, but more chapters when?
'Sup John Titor?
sigh who knows
hmmm about that...
Your car a shit
Well I'll be damned.
Is it a piece of shit?
yes but I still love it.
>hurhur circle jerk nerd car
Chapter 9 came out not too while ago.
In case your source of manga didn't update.
Shiiit it was that recent ago? Maybe I'm just impatient.
Is that Dr Pepper and an IBM 5100?!
I forgot /o/ was a thing
What do they even do to pass the time, it's the deadest fucking board
I love seeing my car in anime.
>What do they even do to pass the time
We fix our broken ass cars and drive around.
Is that a Gremlin?
'71 Datsun 240z
Maybe compared to /a/. That's my second board and the pace of it feels alright.
I prefer when it's boats
No, I WANTED to get a 5100 but I just used an old HP-85 and a printout of an IBM 5100 as a face. 5100s are damned rare.
Luckily polaroid film helps smooth out the details.
Where you from /o/ bro? Also >mfw people mistake my car for a Delorean
Is that a Delorean?
People actually mistake that car for a Delorean?
hey, owning a DeLorean, it is funny when people think it is a Ferrari. I've learned to just nod and accept.
>There will never be a manga where cute girls fix up and drive classic cars
Dallas, I've seen your Z posted a couple times as well. And I have no idea how people can mistake that for a Delorean, what the hell.
>own a MkII Supra
>the only Supras that show up in Chinese cartoons are MkIV's.
Dagumi should've gotten one of these instead.
Oh god you got me. I laughed hard.
Is there any mention of Miatas?
Kaiki drove one in the Koimonogatari OP. One in Initial D too I think, but I might just be mistaking it for the Cappuccino.
you mean porsche right
Holy shit I live in Dallas too. Keep an eye out for Austin Area meetup threads, I've heard we may have one soon.
My bro has a rather interesting version of that car.
Is that a Zzzap 280? That's pretty rare.
Well we thought it was but the zzzzap wasn't white. Nobody honestly knows. All we know is that it did come from the factory like that.
>tfw seeing your car in anime
BOLTS AND NUTS!...are too direct.maybe.
Eh. I saw the thread on the catalog but I doubt I'll go, maybe if there was one a little closer.
Did you enjoy seeing it also get rekt constantly?
I've heard some dealers put zzzap decals and such on non-zap cars.
There's several of us in Dallas, we may do something small around here.
I will probably never understand that feeling.
And it feels bad
when are we gonna get new chapters of COUNTACH
admittedly no. My DeLorean has never been mistaken for a Porsche.
Maybe. But, it has the zzzap mirrors and the wheels. Who knows. Every time I drive the thing, somebody has to honk and ask about it. Its bout done though. He's pretty much wrekt it. Hes had it for like 12 years though.
>all these nip cars
Oh, I'm so fucking jelly of your S30. I've had boner for them since I was 12. Sadly they're extremely rare and expensive in Yurop.
Never have to worry bout the paint going bad or rusting.
Black looks better on the DMC than the bare steel does.
>old dude gets a tarbo Starion
>kicks ass in it
>there will never be scans, let alone translations
I really wanna drop all my TL projects to work on this myself, but I can't even fucking find it for sale anywhere. It's ridiculous.
Maybe Type R would do it.
He has a Starion.
unfortunately you do. Both the top strut between the doors and the frame itself are still made of standard steel.
Also, you seem to be missing your LS1.
You should get that looked at.
The Delorean is a nice looking car, OP. Unfortunately is was severely underpowered with a shitload of quality issues.
Now the McLaren F1 - If I ever see it in a mango or chinese cartoon, I will literally cum enough to fill the Pacific. The F1 is the God among God cars.
Are fucking sex on wheels.
This isn't your car is it? Took this a year or two ago when I was driving my other car.
Nissan L series are god tier, I love that straight six
Giorgetto Giugiaro...He is a genius!
>The F1 is the God among God cars.
Pretty overrated if you ask me.
Nothing to write home about, handling wise and slower than a Corvette from 1988.
Well I hope he'd have all nine volumes handy and ready to be scanned. I scoured the internet for almost three hours looking for it and the closest I could find are volumes 1-9 minus volume 8 and they were in fucking Chinese. It shouldn't be nearly this hard to find a manga in this day and age.
WHY DID THEY STOP TRANSLATING COUNTACH
>cars and vehicles
>tfw only a single manga has your Carfu
Nice bait, m8. Try that in /o/ and watch your thread sink to page 10 in record time.
Got any videos of it?
Are you joking?
/o/ loves to shitpost about Corvettes all the fucking time.
How new are you?
Nah the pic was taken when I was replacing my doors and rear panels (bad damage under rear paint, cats seemed curious tho). Right now I live in Virginia. I have Ohio plates.
Surprised people don't think it's a Lambo.
indeed, that has yet to occur.
>tfw you'll never see a Ford Ranger in an anime
>tfw RIP Ford Rangers in the States (1983–2012)
>tfw it's a Ford and igaf
We just need some Eurobeat and itasha and the thread will be complete.
I can dump itasha if you want
That's a nice soundtrack. Even more jelly now.
Bro, da vette is a nice american muscle car and all. But how can you even compare the two?
Well, the Vette is faster.
0/10 see me after class.
What is that, a 430?
It's a Ferrari.
It's not like you can dislike the owner any more than any other Ferrari owner.
I'm not a big fan of Ferraris either.
>blood begins to boil
I'm more offended by the shitty bolt-ons.
Are you suuuure it's a kit car? it is
The shitty panel fitment is a pretty clear indicator.
WOA WOA WOA YOU GOT TO BE A STAR
Can we at least make it SLIGHTLY /a/ related?
I prefer flares without obvious rivets but I don't think it looks too bad.
I really should get a few screenshots of this now, wouldn't have had a clue how to do it back then but sit in front of the telly photographing the VHS footage.
I really didn't even expect for the Renault to show up but it was fun to find out they made a Hino version and it was refreshing to see this really nice girl was having such a good time restoring it.
I'm posting itasha, itasha are /a/ related.
Prepare to be ass blasted.
Seen it before.
>tfw animators can no longer draw cars for some reason and the art has been lost to the point where they're incredibly basic and plain designs and or just CG it
Hand-drawn cars look like shit most of the time.
I was enjoying this thread but now I have to go to work and its raining and I just want to stay home and look at cars and anime dammit
Saw that in the gore thread the other day ;_;
I hate how all cars in anime are CG now
It just takes effort, stupid.
>I have to go to work and its raining
Just use the wipers.
That's not how you write "money".
Still rain bums me out its wet and its get everywhere just like those pesky younglings.
Not that anon but my wipers don't work and my windows leak...
Can you actually drive a car with no working wipers legally?
Redline wasn't THAT expensive.
It just took time and effort.
Just put some rainx on that shit.
That's what I did on Ir
You can Rain-X the shit out of your windshield I suppose.
well since I managed to get it inspected? Yes. I just RainX the windshield.
What kind of a shitty country lets broken cars through inspection?
More like what kind of shitty country has mandatory inspection?
America. And more like I know my mechanic well so it passes as long as I pay for the inspection.
I THINK I have one of those in my garage now being rebuilt. Too much QUALITY to tell really.
I saw an old Land Rover like that while I was delivering pizzas this morning.
Here's a different angle.
The better ones.
I love that.
Can someone post the banner of this gif?
That one saying "QUALITY at its finest"
WHAT IS THIS THING?!
I'm still quite saddened that no anime has been made focusing on homegrown drifting, considering it's popularity.
I'd watch the shit out of cute girls in cute RPS13s.
I've been wanting an automotive series done a la Upotte or Neptunia for the longest time. We've just gotta keep dreaming.
>watertight doors let water in
oh god my sides
Problem is, the nips refuse to acknowledge the anything that wasn't made in Japan when it comes to cars.
As much as the prospect of an entire cast composed of various GT-Rs, I'll pass.
It's more the problem of anything not Japanese being taxed to hell, so only cars that are ridiculously expensive to begin with are worth importing.
Hell, that would be fine too. Plenty of diversity for a show about anthropomorphized Japanese cars. Though I do agree that they absolutely adore their own cars, just look at Gran Turismo 5 and 6. You've got a couple thousand GTR variants, several hundred Civics, yet not a single E30 BMW.
That's purely your opinion man, and I respect it.
Time Attack would be brilliant as well, if that's something you're more into. A team of cute girls working tirelessly on aero, GT-sized wings and suspension setups so that they can get under a minute on the big day would be extremely enjoyable as well.
Hopefully it'll come soon enough. I'd buy all the merchandise my wallet could afford.
Fun Fact: Japan has sold out it's quota of Corvettes 8 years in a row.
How about we compromise and it can be rallycross?
So what? 2 Corvettes?
>tfw never see a Saturn SC2 in any fictional work ever, let alone anime
I will never know the feeling you speak of.
My car is old as fuck in terms of mileage but it drives like a damn dream
They showed up a few times in sitcoms around 2000.
Well it is Japan. Not many people drive right? The ones that do usually have good money. It makes sense to me.
The Corvette is also on the same level as Aston-Martin and similar makes in Japan.
The rest of the world may have forgotten the Saturn Coupe. But I haven't.
One day, a part is gonna break and I'm not gonna be able to find a replacement for it...
You're not entirely correct there.
For the average person in a large city or metropolis, driving yourself is just more expensive, and due to lack of convienient parking spots and space, annoying. Unless your job requires you to drive around to different areas, you don't have to have a car, due to the quality of their public transport and walkways. Cars are still popular, and many people own them for the weekends, in metropolis areas.
Yeah, I'm not entirely sure either. But, I thought the majority of japan lived in big metro areas. I rarely see people driving around in anime.
Damn, mines mounted the wrong way and lacks 2 less pistons.
I knew someone with an SC2, it died at like 300k miles and he bought a miata.
tfw Kaiki drives your car
Because a lot of anime are high school, and you can only get your drivers license at 17/18 if I'm to be correct.
Also, driving can be difficult to animate well, I guess.
Oh my god, is that an E16 in a Pulsar?
> 300k miles
The 4.0 in my XJ hit 540k before it grenaded.
XJ? As in a Jag?
Miata most kawaii car
>tfw only that pedo from Initial D drives my car
I assume he means an XJ Jeep because those engines are bulletproof and jag engines are shit.
Since it's a 4.0, I'm thinking XJ as in Jeep.
Is that the hearse that took the original Tron to its grave when the remake came out?
Okay, I was just in disbelief for a second because I was thinking there's no way in hell a British car can even make it to half that many miles, and when I see XJ the first thing that comes to mind is Jaguar and not Jeep.
That's a time machine, you pleb.
Its a fiero with a body kit.
Old Saturn shitboxes will still be roaming around twenty years from now, guarantee it.
These fucking things are great on gas, light as shit, and built to last. I bought mine used at 100k miles for under 3k a couple years, put another 30k (all city miles) on it and I've only had to replace the transmission.
>MFW people are still driving them and calling them pieces of shit. STILL. DRIVING. IT.
People love their pieces of shit.
The worst thing for a person's perception of a vehicle is for it to have nothing wrong with it.
>tfw there is a 4 speed 80s transam with no rust, good interior, and runs well for sale nearby
>tfw i can't sell my car to get it fast enough
I meant that I'm amazed the car still worked despite being a piece of shit.
I love seeing my car show up in mangas
I wish ;_;
My current car is at 224k miles and it still gets called a piece of shit on a daily basis.
Its needed no major maintenance the entire life of the car. Unopened block, original trans, the original clutch is still in there too.
>I've only had to replace the transmission.
Autotragic? Sad feels br/o/.
Car guys have a different idea of "piece of shit" than normal people.
And I wish you didn't post from shitty watermarking sites.
Besides, the GT500 is shit-tier compared to Bean's C3 ZL1.
That's my point. If it still runs and you haven't had to fuck with it, its not a piece of shit. If it looks like shit, who cares.
>If it still runs and you haven't had to fuck with it, its not a piece of shit
Pictured, my absolute piece of shit.
But it works, right? You should do something wacky with the paint. Just for fun.
>But it works, right
Can't be trusted to go up 20% grades at speed due to shitty 3spd slushbox and literally less than 30hp.
Oh, and can't be driven on the highway because merging into traffic is too dangerous.
And it gets 14mpg.
And the doors don't lock.
Luckily, I'm buying a "new" car in a month or so.
You see, non-car guys might not get it, but we aren't referring to the car's reliability when we call it a piece of shit. We usually mean "Shit, you're so fucking slow, why can't I have enough money to buy a nice car!?" but we keep driving our shitboxes because /o/ is full of a bunch of poor bastards and half of /o/ rides the bus.
Then it doesn't work correctly so my statement doesn't apply to your vehicle.
I'm always referring to reliability when I refer to a vehicle as shit. Granted the quality of even economy vehicles these days has gone up quite a bit.
All this talk about pieces of crap makes me miss my old pic related. Engine blew at 260k at a bad time. Ended up getting rid of it.
I have a soft spot for boxy 80's car's
>Quality of even economy vehicles these days has gone up quite a bit
There are a few diesel Mercedes' still rolling around with hundreds of thousands of miles on them. Old jeeps rolling around in 400k+ miles. Just have to find the good cars if you're buying old cars. Jap cars have always been pretty good in terms of reliability.
I would have taken it and put a SR20DET in it. They're getting hard to find unmolested.
I know man. I'm kicking myself for getting rid of it. It was at a bad time. It was clean as hell too. The dash just started to crack and the seats needed to be reupholstered. But, everything else was mint.
I wish modern cars still came with pillows for seat covers.
I remember that shit. It was so comfortable.
So apparently /o/ doesn't understand jokes. Noted.
I wish they still used velour.
1st gen with the E16S.
Its like a symphony of angels when you open up the secondary.
I have the E16i in mine. the TBI is absolute shit and the car has a lot of problems. I'm working on fixing it up though. it was my first car.
Ah I remember you now.
I got to do extensive body work on mine now, Canada and factory installed rust has not been kind to her.
Wouldnt be surprised, last one I saw on the road was over 6 years ago.
I pulled its rebuilt distributor from it in the boneyard ;_;
Why aren't there any manga with Dodge Stratuses in them? Cus' I drive one.
It's a 180sx, not an original Silvia. The original S13 without the rising headlights had the CA18DET, the 180sx had the SR20DE/T.
Haven't seen a GTI in my manga or chinese cartoons yet.
Because the Stratus coupe was just an ugly version of an Eclipse.
You mean a Golf GTI, right? Why on earth would you buy one in Japan when you can buy one of their other million FWD 2L 4cyl turbo boxes and not pay gratuitous importing fees?
Sup, /o/? A bunch of cars I own have showed up in Initial D. AE86, CT9A Evo, NA Miata, and EG Civic hatch.
I need to find a transmission for mine... It hasn't had 5th gear since I owned it. Those transmissions apparently had an issue with 5th gear wearing out really fast.
I've already got a boyfriend, but could you cut my hair all the same?
>poorfags who purchase ancient relics and claim then to be a good car.
Enjoy your 14+ down the quarter, faggots.
>generic cgi model popping up everywhere.
>not a micra
There has been a few guys mating up GA16s to E16 transmission without issue, some guy did it to B12 Sentra.
But rebuilding the trans would be cheaper then a whole new box.
Ive been attempting to 5sp swap mine for years.
I bet you all like Maeda/MX5s
Fucking hairdresser faggots.
Guide to cars:
New car? Put a V8 windsor in it.
What's that it's newer than a V8 Windsor? Too bad, put a Windsor in it.
It would be cheaper to just rebuild the internals then outright replace due to what I think is either a worn bushing and/or syncro.
Just buy a regular mustang like I did
Yeah, I'm just going to have to find a source for parts.
>car needs to be fast to be enjoyed
I don't think my car has ever been in a manga.
But I still love the tough old bitch.
I was hoping he meant a GTi-R, the Pulsar. Driven by a loli.
Get some forced induction on a Miata and you've got a 950kg 150kW weekend warrior. Pull the motor out and slap in a V8 and you've got yourself a homemade Shelby Cobra.
Never make fun of Mx5's. They're the most popular convertible ever built for a reason.
>You mean a March.
>track day, bro
Still, I need a little taken off the bangs, and I need it faded in on the sides to match up with my sideburns. You can do that, right?
Use Rockauto. I had to use it to source most of my parts, outside getting OEM parts shipped from US since Nissan Canada is retarded.
Crashed my Echo, bro.
Gib money plz, bro
>you've got yourself a homemade Shelby Cobra.
Don't you ever fucking make that comparison again.
I was just pricing Pulsar parts on rockauto the other day. I need to pull the Pulsar out next paycheck and start working on it.
>Gib money plz, bro
>people give him a large amount of money
>buys sensible, economic car
>uses rest of money to improve show
So, are all of you just mad that people gave him money for a service he provides?
Because that's kind of the basis of our entire economic system.
Correct, if you've actually driven a modern car, you realize that gutless pieces of shit are just that, gutless pieces of shit.
Get some taste, poorboy.
>Enjoy your 14+ down the quarter
>yfw most old muscle cars ran 14+
Trying to make a living off Youtube isnt a viable life style for MOST people.
So you're mad that your own ideas never took off, gotcha.
I like big full sized sedans from the 70s and 80s.
Big ass engine, big ass car, only good at going in straight lines.
Nope, dirty blue collar making 80k a year.
Not some faggot haired manboy with a fetal alcohol fore headed whore
Decent amount of modern features.
Good first car, yay or nay? Can get one off my aunt cheap, leather interior and all. (02' outback)
>implying anyone on /a/ owns a god damn delorean
Yep, old fuel drinkers are deprecated, who would've thought?
There's at least two people on /o/ that are confirmed to own Deloreans. They're not THAT rare.
Decent first car.
>off my aunt
She's a lesbian, right?
Nope, her husband is a pothead who likes going overseas and she's a teacher at tardschool. Can't explain her car selection.
>her husband is a pothead who likes going overseas
She's a lesbian.
>tfw initial D will never progress its timeline to a point where takumi races against/in (the white version of) my car
if it breaks it's gonna be pretty expensive to fix. Subaru's don't tend to have cheap things go wrong
also you do know that in the US it is the premier angry-bitter-middle-aged-recently-divorced-lesbian car of choice, right? Or in Bongland its the yobbo car of choice.
Other than that, they are pretty good cars
What do you think the original Shelby was? A hairdresser convertible with a Ford V8 in it.
excellent practical first car. really easy to work on and cheap parts. im just a Subaru fanboy though
Where have you been?
>tfw when driving a Dodge Stratus
Y'all better step the fuck off.
I wouldnt call doing a headjob on 2.5L cheap or easy to work on.
If its the 2.2 its gutless and bulletproof.
Don't live in the US, and what is bongland?
Do you even Top Gear faggot?
I worked at a Subaru dealership for 6 years. theyre not that bad to work on. you gotta take the motor out, but once that's done its easy goings and set for another 200,000kms
Wasn't that just fanart? I never read the manga, though.
>and what is bongland?
I do, but I'm dull and have a poor memory.
I misread that as Stratos for a second
Well, none of them apply to me then.
Guess I'm getting an Outback.
Pics with bread on top or it didnt happen.
This guy knows whats up
Shigeno made that for toyota.
What a bro. Wonder if I could get him to sign next to tetsuya tada's signature I got on my dash.
But still, its not what I meant
Whenever i see a car in a manga it seems really out of place
once this baby hits 88mph you're going to see some serious shit.
>once this baby hits 88mph
See ya next week, bro. let me know when youre half way and ill bring you some snacks
A DeLorean at 88mph is a frightening experience....at least mine is.
I assume this was the first think you did after buying it.
Have you kept it completely original, or did you make the improvements on what they generally need?
Original with general repairs and so on
I hope you're a proper enthusiast that gets on top of what needs to be fixed right away
oh I have. Short of taking it to one of the main DeLorean shops though my remaining issue is a shudder at high speeds. I've replaced the entire steering and suspension system so my only guess is that I have a slightly bent rim that doesn't flag in wheel balance tests.
OK Now I'm officially jelly. They're fucking cool. I want one.
They're fucking impossible to find where I live, I'd sell my car and apartment to buy one.
Datsun 240z? I envy you m8
A buckled rim would just show up on a wheel balance as a high amount of weight needed. depending on where you got your wheel balances done they probably just do what the machine tells them for quick money. but what they should really do is watch the tyres as theyre on the balancer for any abnormal movement. I would put my money on a buckled rim though if you've done all of that
Is that the cute robotic waifus getting their head smashed manga?
A mate from high-school has one.
"...No, no, no, no, no, this sucker's electrical."
Am I on the wrong board.
