Cars older than 30 years doesn't cost anything except the insurance. My newer cars cost about 1500-2500 SEK each year in tax. But I don't have the 245 'in trafic' right now so it doesn't cost anything either.

So tomorrow my Chrysler goes on a second attempt for TÜV (technical inspection). I am a bit angry 'bout the Yaris. The hand brake sometimes gets stuck and you cant loosen it anymore.

But i have a story from today i want to share with you. I didnt want to put a new topic for it because i was not sure how to name that. I moved from Berlin to a small city in Rhineland-Palatinate in September 2015. Maybe you have already read that somewhere else. I always thought moving from Germanys Captial to a small city makes driving more comfortable. But no it isnt, drivers are stupid too.

Almost everytime i drive through this roundabout i get cut off by some stupid driver. Those idiots think because they are entering the roundabout from the main road, they have the law on their side. But in Germany the rule applies that cars inside the roundabout have the right of way. Today some VW Polo driver made me rage instantly. Normally i am very calm at the wheel, which is weird considering that i can get really grumpy normally. But at the wheel i stay cool and honk the horn rarely.

So when this Polo cut me off, i honked at him and followed him normally. Then i flashed my head lights at him only twice just to harrass him a little bit. I was not really tailgating him at this point, because i was three car lenghts away from him. But this idiot didnt get the message and slowed down to 40 km/h (where 50 was allowed). But yet i was still not tailgating. Just at the next chance for overtaking i hammered down the gas pedal to overtake him but this fucking moron accelerated to 48 km/h (still 2 under the limit), so i had to break up the overtaking. I honked for the second time that evening, because in Germany you are not allowed to accelerate if someone overtakes you.

After that we reached a no-overtaking-zone and this idiot slowed down to 38 km/h (still 50 allowed!). The road made only a smooth left turn which even a truck can take with 50. At this point i was already getting tailgated by the guy behind me because the Polo driver slowed me down so hardly. I swerved slightly to the right, so my follower could see who the real idiot on the road is.

The Polo started to accelerate more but i caught him again at the next red traffic light. I stopped next to him, rolled down my window and flipped him off. He signed at his Tachometer as if he tried to say "I was just going by the speed limit" and i was like "wtf?" :halalala: . I made a sign that he needs to roll down the window so i can explain him that he is either blind on both eyes or blatantly stupid if he cant read a 50 sign. But this coward didnt roll down the window.

Long story yeah, but i am so angry!!! :bombe:

There is about 3 sure things in life :smile:

1 : Earth spins around the Sun

2 : Death will catch all of us someday

3 : No matter where you are, sooner or later a stupid driver will show up


We can do nothing against those 3 things except avoid ( or at least try to ) the 3rd one when it comes our way.... :halalala:

I haven't yet posted on this thread it seems, but the fact that I have a Peugeot 208 is well known by most of IMCDb members I suppose:

Previously a company-car new from January 2014 (pic 1), I bought it back from the company for a good price in July 2015 after bankruptcy (pic 2, different plate as I had to register it under my name)

I don't like original "full size" hubcaps. On pic 1 it has the 16" winter tyres, on which the hubcaps don't fit anyway.

Now on both 15" summer and 16" winter tyres I use small center caps from a Peugeot 106 Rallye S2:

That's the only non-factory item of the car.

With the Rallye hubcaps shouldn't the wheels be painted white? :grin:

I'm not feeling the wheels to be honest. How about:

My father has these wheels on his 208 GTI, both him & I prefer the black wheels with small centre hubcaps rather than these alloy wheels that easily get damaged and are more difficult to change :grin:
For winter tyres he uses black wheels with first-gen 106 rallye hubcaps.

With the Rallye hubcaps shouldn't the wheels be painted white? :grin:


Sure, but it is more discreet in black. And there were originally black anyway :grin:

After seeing A PV544, Fiat 850, Reliant, etc. in here... If anyone wants to see his car in a comic, there'll be a few places for backgroundcars in the coming stories. You can apply in this thread (but please follow the rules there): http://imcdb.opencommunity.be/forum_topic-8197-65133-Your_IMCDB_car.html#p65133

I've come to realize the black 1982 Pontiac Firebird from Knight Rider, my favorite show as a kid in the '80s, has influenced my liking the black Saab. It's not KITT but it's closer than most modern cars.

Incidentally, a tip for Americans, to gain influence in the Middle East you just need to spread American pop culture, no military intervention necessary. Set up a satellite channel and show "Friends". East Germans watching West German tv made the wall come down as well...

My cute little 1984 Honda Accord sedan. She needs a lot of work but I plan on keeping her forever, she hasn't failed me yet. I bought this from a guy a few blocks away a month ago, after not having a car for a few months last year due to financial difficulties. Best part about this car - the bank can never take it away from me! Never buying a new car ever again! :grin:

Is there an oldtimer system in the US? Here 25y+ cars (soon 30+) are cheap to insure and tax but can't be used for the commute to work or school. Besides that they're starting to ban old cars from city centers.

Most states have their own version for classic cars, usually ID'd with special license plates. In some cases, the car can be 15 years or older.
