My car is over 20 and the damn battery is under a bunch of shit to get to. It's such a pain in the ass whenever I needed to replace it. Also what would him taking the battery out do if they don't have a second one? He'd still need a new one. Unless they had one already. Lastly why should we care?

After the year 2000 or so, I don't think there have been any cars, particularly daily drivers, that people could genuinely consider as 'classic' once they turn 20 or so. For context, a 20 year old car now includes the likes of the Audi TT and Nissan Skyline R34. And besides, sports cars don't count since they're automatically classics the second they're discontinued.

I would like to be proven wrong. Are there any "everyday" cars made since 2000 that have a 'classic' appeal to them?

I got multiple ideas while answering this thread.


8th gen Civic, that design will make it somewhat collectible

Toyota IQ: this small shit is too peculiar to be forgotten

Renault Vel Satis: that fucking retarded design

My reasoning was that Skoda have made better cars in recent years and that their most memorable post-2000 design is the Yeti (seeing as the Fabia is pre-2000, and the Octavia/Superb are both boring). The EA888 petrol engine seems to be the most desirable version of the Yeti seeing as how the 1.8L is just a destroked 2.0L. You could swap the crankshaft and then start chasing the 300hp model that was in the Mk7 Golf/Seat Leon.


>The Mk6 Golf

ok, but the Mk5 is still post-2000 and it had a V6


>the "launched at the 2001 Geneva Motor Show to replace the already discontinued Safrane, it was previously revealed as a concept car in 1998" Renault Vel Satis

>The "was first shown in February 1999" Avantime

Bro if you only wanna complain at least do it right. A concept car isn't the car itself and the question was about post 2000 cars. These have begun production after 2000.

>Uncooked bread isn't the loaf itself

>Unborn baby isn't the baby itself

>Unripe fruit isn't the fruit itself

I could go into an explanation of how OP used the phrase "made" rather than "produced" and explain the differences but the thing is… I'm just here to affirm that millennial car design is terrible.

The worst part is, it's not even the millennial generation's fault. If you're designing a car *for* the year 2000 you'd had to have been at least about 20 years old. Which means the designers who produced utter shit were born by 1980 or perhaps earlier. Who entered high school after around 12 years, so around 1992 or earlier (when the rot really had to have sunk itself in).

If everything good was basically already designed by the 1970's, then it would mean that the last generation to receive a good education did so while enduring the aftermath of a major war.

That gives you an idea of how bad things are now.

Should I stick with a soft hardtop Suzuki I have but its going to have a 1.6 sidekick engine, ~95hp? or go buy a right had drive, better body, less mileage original JDM import with 50~ horsepower? I don't get it cause one site says the samurai with the 1.3 normal engine has 60hp while the 1.3 turbo Japanese import has 50hp?

The pros of the "project" I have are listed…

>1.6 sidekick HP, good popular engine, more HP and still good MPG

>Parts are USA and its reliable

>I have all the parts I can take to a mechanic so they can install it

>Car needs to be painted, the body is in okay condition. Allows for removal of the hard-soft top so I can make it open body.

>I'll get to choose the new color I want, OD green or maybe Coyote brown


<Will probably cost more with the paint job.

<The body is in okayish condition

<Nothing will be done since it was my dads project but since he hasnt touched it for 10+ years, he clearly wont finish it in the next year.

<Cost more just to get it running and ready.

The pros for the JDM I saw on craigslist…

>The body is in good-great condition

>60k miles on it

>1.3 Turbo so it should be better than a stock and probably gets better mileage

>Already in working condition and can start on the upgrades such as a lift, tires etc.

>JDM right had drive

>Real hard top and looks a lot better than what hardtop removable one I have.


<Dont know if the seller still has it but its likely…

<Seller is asking for $5200

<I dont have the cash on hand so the seller might not have it by the end of the year when I could potentially have the money.

Doing my plugs and wires soon. I've got pre-gapped Bosch Iridium spark plugs, and the gap on the box is the correct gap for my engine. I'd like to just put them in as-is without messing with the gap, since the electrode is so easy to damage, and because I'm pretty sure I've screwed up a couple iridium plugs before by gapping them. The thing is, 90% of "pre-gapped" plugs I've checked in the past were set at the wrong gap (and were not even consistent in how far off they were).

So which is riskier? Messing with the gap to make sure it's right, or leaving them alone and potentially using the wrong gap?

>Generally speaking, you mounted a FWD engine transverse because it saves space, but as a result, this means there is going to be an intermediate shaft on one of the axles.

>As a result, the torque being applied to one side is going to be greater than the other, resulting in torque steer.

>Usually when they mount of a FWD cars engine longitudinally it's because they want the transmission to be mounted more centrally, to make the torque steer less prevalent.

Torque steer is when the steering joints different from the wheel center thus when one wheel loses traction the other will tug more and turn around the joint. Like a lever actuated by tire grip.

Driveshaft length and mass do play a role but it's not the reason for torque steer.

or you could… y'know, revmatch into second and have no hick-ups at all. I usualy revmatch my Mazda 323f all the way to 3rd, then use clutch to get to 4th and 5th. (synchro on 4th is broken somehow, i hate grinding gears)

f7ae75  No.16783


Be gentle between 1 and 2. Wait a little longer than usual(~0.5s) after pushing the clutch in, and don't force the stick into gear. The 1-2 shift has the highest amount of mechanical stress involved, especially under hard acceleration, and going easy with it will go a long way to preserving your gearbox.

fc5fa1  No.16835


Lift the clutch as slowly as you would when starting from a standstill when shifting between 1st and 2nd, that should sort the jerkyness.

The higher gears are easier to shift into as

A. the car is moving faster and

B. the size difference isn't as large
