Damn, you guys in the US are lucky. You guys pay less a month for an entire car park than having just a single car in the Netherlands. One of the reasons why I don't have one. I don't need one to get around, and just for hobby it's too expensive.

I do have some other nice stuff at my disposal:

1986 Koga Miyata road racer, 2010 Koga Miyata globetraveller, 2012 Trek 6300, 2014 Stevens aspin and a small trainstation at 50m from my house.

It's like Sagrawa said, driving a car is much more expensive than in the US but I live in Germany, thats why I can mine faster on the road then you americans can Imagine. I dont need my car that often but for the weekend shoping and traveling at weekend I have a Skoda Octavia Tour, which is able to go 210km/h which is 130 mph :-)

I spent two years in Vilseck, loved it over there. I miss the Autobahn :)

Had my 1989 Pontiac Trans Am with me. The fuel gauge would drop faster than the Speedo would go up, lol.

65 mpg in cruise control for me. I look for a high MPG these days instead of a MPH

My Car does 40 mpg in normal speed and 18 mpg at Highspeed (130 mph)

As a Ford super freak, I'm astonished you liked the '85. '82 thru '85 were the worst years ever for Ford trucks. Hell, Ford dealers couldn't even make them run right. When I had my shop I converted about one a month to '86 or newer engine/fuel/ignition systems. 1978 and 1996 were the best ones built, 1999 is a close second.

LMMFAO!

I still have my 84 F150 that I bought new in Oct 84. It was the 2V 351W. Ran like a beast until My uncle was driving it and he whacked it and backed off several times and the timing chain jumped a couple of teeth. That was at 190K. I pulled it, went a bit crazy with the build. I turned it into a beast, but a gashog. I haven't used it in over 6 years.

I had a 78 F150 that I bought new. It was a 460 C6 combo. That was a nasty truck STOCK. It stayed stock about 2 weeks before the first of many mods.

I wish I'd never sold it, but I bought a 79 Turbo Mustang just before going off to bootcamp.

Heh, I was just gonna reply with a 'Really beautiful house Beez' when I noticed this.

So is that considered a compact car in US? Because it's a pretty standard car around here (your VW Golfs, Opel Astras, Renault Meganes, ...) when it comes to size, kind of upper lower / lower middle class .

Yes it is a compact. Most everything in the states is a compact or midsize these days. Aside from some SUVs and trucks, the days of large vehicles has passed.
