Just got a Scion tC a few months ago. Really liking the car. Also have a Kawasaki Ninja, but it's only a 250 (great beginner bike; it's my first one) so I didn't think I should go with the sport bike option.

2005 Ford Focus ZX5

Silver
23k miles (bought it last summer)

It's a fast little car. Darts in and out of traffic well because of it's size. Plus it's gas friendly. I usually go anywhere from 28-36 mpg and that's in town running the AC full blast. I went from a huge Ford pickup and filling it up every week at $40 a pop, to this and filling it up twice a month at $22 a pop.

2002 Ford Focus ZX3 56k miles. Like Travmil said, it is gas efficient and it is suprisingly pretty quick.

Wow thatís an interesting crossbred

I drive an 84 Holden VK Commodore.... and I have a Yamaha FZR 250cc Learner's Roadie bike...

I agree with the wee focus we got one at work and it nips around, got no torque but it nips threw traffic once your used to it....

Some new cars, some old cars and some foreign cars..

Interesting... I need too get a new car, I'm thinking about a Lincoln Continental with gas suspension

The UP West line - so I use NW station.

I used to work in the Amoco building - that was a heck of a walk, but now I'm in the West Loop so its real easy.

I don't miss walking downtown in January. B R U T A L.

Ever take the river taxi from NW station to the Wrigley building? That could have saved you 10 minutes or so for $3. But I guess my advice is too little too late now.

I like the NW station. What other commuter station has $2 24-ounce tall-boys of beer? Not many, if any. :)

I'm 16, I paid for half of it. My dad matched me dollar per dollar. We got a really good deal on it tho. It was wrecked tho... but the guys I bought it from fix up cars that have been wrecked. The only damage to the car was on the passenger side door, and bumper with a few scratches. We saw before they worked on it. All they had to do was replace the door, and do some bonding (sp?) on the bumper. The car only had 800 miles on it.. soo my dad and I figured it was worth the chance. We haven't had a problem with it yet.

It's only a v6, and it's a automatic. It doesn't have leather seats or anyother junk like that in it tho.

The guy mainly has all Cavalier, and Mustanges.

They mainly do autoglass, but they fix up cars on the side.
