You guys have this as the Galant in the US. Over here it was badged as the 380 until Mitsubishi went bust locally. Now we pretty much get Lancers. 2006 SX model, 3.8 under the bonet and a nice interior. Don't know about getting 18s or 19s because it's a pretty big car. Gotta lower it too because it's ass is so high off the ground.

I've never driven a 380 but I hear they can get up and boogey.
Nice.
I should try and get some pictures of my van on here.

Yeah , I'm saving up for my project car.
Right now I've been fixin my old beater (91 Mazda Protege)- Rotors , brake pads , thermostat , new radiator hoses , etc. I do all the work myself unless it's a 2 person job among other sh*T.

Anyway I drive a sh*t load of different cars at work including a 70s stingray , a few 70s Skylarks , 80s corvettes, you know older muscle. Plus 90's up stangs and camaros. I'm not saying I work on these cars as a specialty but we have seen a few.
I might have to save up for a 96 up Camaro. I don't care if it's an LT either... just will need a engine cleanup and a new head gasket....f*cking GM...

That thing is sweet. I was driving home the other day and a charcoal gray Nissan GT-R went by. It was the first time I'd seen one in person, and I almost drove off the road because I couldn't take my eyes off it. Some of you may think I'm nuts, but high-end sports cars driving around western Massachusetts is a rare sight.

No Speeding Tickets for Fast Sounding Cars

Postby VeilSide » Mon Dec 14, 2009 10:33 pm

thenewspaper.com wrote:Ohio Appeals Court: No Speeding Tickets for Fast Sounding Cars
12/10/2009

Ohio Court of Appeals rules that a police officer cannot issue a speeding ticket because a car sounds fast.

The Ohio Court of Appeals on Monday ruled that a motorist cannot be convicted of speeding based solely on how fast his car may have sounded. On October 18, 2007, Patrolman Ken Roth ticketed Daniel Freitag in the village of West Salem as Freitag was driving with his wife Jane on US Route 42. Roth claimed his radar unit clocked Freitag at 42 MPH in a 35 zone. Roth also claimed he could hear Freitag's 2006 Lincoln Navigator speeding.

"As it approached I could hear the vehicle on the roadway which based on my training and experience it is consistent with a vehicle that was in excess of the posted speed limit," Roth testified.

A trial court judge on November 16, 2007 accepted this testimony and found Freitag guilty. Freitag challenged this decision before the Ohio Court of Appeals on the grounds that the radar evidence was not admissible. The trial court claimed it had taken judicial notice of the "Genesis Radar" that Roth used, but the state failed to specify which particular radar model was used. Freitag won on the point that the radar evidence was improperly admitted, but he lost as the court sent the case back to the trial judge to rule whether the officer's estimate of Freitag's speed based on the Navigator's sound was credible. The trial court once again supported the officer and ruled that Freitag was guilty.

Freitag, however, did not give up. He appealed a second time, insisting that the officer's testimony that he could estimate a vehicle's speed by its sound or by watching a car's headlights through the patrol car's rear-view mirror was absurd. This time, the appeals court agreed.

"In weighing the evidence and all reasonable inferences and considering the credibility of the witnesses, we conclude that this presents the exceptional case, where the evidence weighs heavily in favor of Freitag," Judge Donna J. Carr wrote for the court. "The weight of the evidence does not support the conclusion that Freitag was exceeding the posted speed limit, specifically because Patrolman Roth's testimony that he audibly and visibly determined that Freitag was speeding is not credible... It is simply incredible, in the absence of reliable scientific, technical, or other specialized information, to believe that one could hear an unidentified vehicle 'speeding' without being able to determine the actual speed of the vehicle."

Calling the trial judge's ruling a "manifest miscarriage of justice," the court reversed Freitag's conviction.

A copy of the final appeals court decision is available in a 50k PDF file at the source link below.

...and this is a prime example of how cops lie. :|

All we know is: he's called "The Stig."

Postby VeilSide » Mon Jan 18, 2010 10:23 am

The Stig has been spotted on Google StreetView! :D
some say he stands in his office all day, because chairs are afraid of him.

EDIT: The Stig has also been found at Loch Ness!
some say the Loch Ness Monster is actually one of his unsuited and unhelmeted grand children.
some say that Hadrian's Wall was actually built by the Scottish to keep him out

Look down, back up, where are you? You're scrolling through comments, writing the comment your comment could look like. What did you post? Back at mine, it's a reply saying something you want to hear. Look again the reply is now diamonds. Anything is possible when you think before you post, I'm sexy."
