good stuff eh? just out drifting in the snow with a buddy of mine in my '88 accord Tongue . makes me love minnesota, and old cars i don't care about

what do you drive?
and what do you pull?
and how bout any traffic violations?

personally, the fastest i've driven a car at was 120 mph in my buddy's caddy, and the only time i've been pulled over was with my dad while i was only permitted. just got a warning, clean record ever since...though i swear i've been close

2000 white jeep wrangler with a four inch lift.  spice colored top, lots of fun.
I take her out mudd'n in the county east of mine (you can pretty much do whatever you want there) all the time.

only time i ever had any trouble was when i slid off the road a few years ago after i hit a patch of ice, smacked one of those gasoline price signs. no body damage, but it knocked a sensor or two out of wack.

never been caught for speeding, and now that i have these 33 inch tires, i dont think i could speed if i wanted to

Me mums Ford Focus, sucks. Till she gets a new car in June, yay! Cheesy
Never been caught speeding, usually about 10mph over the limit though, managed to get it to hit 100 on a motorway, was well impressed. Steering wheel starts to shake at 85, which is worrying.

In UK/Europe we have shorter distances to travel, and a much better transport system, so less need for cars.


The British drive on the left-hand side of the road because that leaves our right arm free to swing our weapons at all the peasant scum travelling on the right-hand side of the road. Tongue

Well SS, how old are you / how old do you have to be to take the test in Britain?
Over here, pretty much every kid is scrambling to get their license as soon as they turn 16.

I'm 24, and I think the minimum limit is 17.

A fair few people do go for the test around 17/18, but I didn't bother myself when I was that age since the only place outside walking distance I went to was school, and I got the bus there, and also I guess because I wasn't encouraged to do it.

Then I went to university and in the first year there wasn't really anywhere I needed to go that wasn't easier on foot or by the uni-run bus service. Second-fourth year it might have been useful, but I was a poor student with barely enough money to eat and buy computer stuff, let alone £20+ for an hour-long driving lesson (thats $40), and I didn't particularly feel like it.

Now I've finished uni and have a real job and thus some money (but not as much as I earn; fecking thieving government! :angry:) and I only live about six minutes away from work, but there are things it'd be useful to be able to drive to - supermarket is a 25 minute walk away (for me; it'd take most people around 35 mins), my camera club is even further (I currently get a lift there), and simply going out and doing photography in interesting places would be much easier.

Huh? Whatever gave you that idea? We drive on the right side of the car over here.

Wow, I could have sworn you were older than that.

And lucky you and being able to walk.  School is 17 miles away for me, and the grocery store is 5.  Unless you live in the city you pretty much have to have your own car or carpool if you're in the US Sad

Yeah, you europeans are way better at transportation i'll admit...

oh, and 20 euros does NOT equal 40 bucks, its not currently 2-1, more like 2-1.5..rather rough though, i dono. see cause we're watching it to know when is best for exchanging our u.s. money for some shabby euros...for our trip Tongue  does it get better around any special dates coming soon or anything crazy like that? got any tips at all for getting the most out of our money?

i'm not sure waht i just typed
