I drive a 2004 Nissan March (Known as Micra in the US and in Europe). It's compact and perfect for navigating through those narrow streets in Japan. For a small car, it is surprisingly roomy and my size 13 shoes don't get stuck like they sometimes do in small cars. Also, it doesn't eat up a lot of gas so it is gentler on my wallet.

That's a very nice car and a comfort one too! It this the same colour like yours? Or do you own a different car colour?

Hello Sushi boy. That is my car. I bought it last summer right after I got my Japanese driver's license.

I like Toyotas. Very durable. My parents owned one and it was reliable for about fifteen years. :3

Toyota

I like some of the cars from this company but I am into sports cars more.


Ford

My favorite cars from Ford are the Mustang and Ford GT.

We have his & hers Imprezas.

They are real peppy on take off, get great gas milage, and go great on ice and snow we get here in Maine. Of all the cars I have driven, I loved the 1968 Dodge charger with a 426 Hemi best. It would cruise at 150 MPH and make you feel like you were flying.

I have seen that car in movies and I hope to drive one. I am also into 1967 Shelby GT 350 and 500(SR). Do you like the muscle car generation?

I was very lucky to have grown up with muscle cars.

My dad was in the automotive business when I was growing up. We used to build and re-build racing engines in our shop. I got to drive a Shelby Cobra with a 428 Hemi as well as the Charger. Also many Corvettes that were high powered. I never had the money to buy my own muscle car, but at least got to test drive many of them after our shop worked them over. The 60's and 70's put out some real gas guzzlers, LOL.

My adoptive father has a '67 Shelby GT 350 so I got to drive it once. Which was so much fun.

When it comes to modern day cars, which do you think preforms the best on the road?

If I were rich...............

I would be practical and pick the 2009 Toyota Land Cruiser loaded with all the off road options. For years people from around the world pick Toyota for toughness and off road, go anywhere capability. It's like a 4 wheel drive tank. With a starting price tag of $65,000 US, I can only dream about it, LOL.

Sounds like a nice car. I would love to see what one looks like. I am too poor to afford one.
