they are hella supertone's, pretty much aftermarket horns which 99.9% people install for the look rather than their intended purpose.
I installed aftermarket horns but I used them for their intended purpose... lol. Admittedly they weren't Hella Supertone but they did the job quite well and made my Evo's pathetic standard horn into something a bit more effective.

Sooooo, I sold my GTIR for this:



Plans:

- Decent set of rims and lows (believe the kiddies call it slammed and rimmed, don't google that though);
- Put on some cosmetic gibblets; and,
- Decent stereo and all...
- Done...

Speed and driving experience isn't really the point of that build though.
This guy knows...

Got my eye on a broken Yamaha SR250 that I reckon I can get... Motorcycles are not overly difficult to work on (especially the ones that run on carbys)... That's going to be for the fun and glory of if, depending on whether it is available within the new year some time... :biggrin:

Sort of over the whole overly modified engines and all... The more you mod an engine, the more things go wrong and it just becomes a money pit... :(

I recently sold my 1999 Mazda mx5, because I am a country bumpkin now

MAKE: Ford
MODEL: BA Falcon Ute
YEAR: 2005
LIKES: Load capacity, long walks on the beach, the music of david bowie
DISLIKES: Fuel consumption, kangaroos
FUN FACT/OTHER/MODLIST: Has a roo bar, bloody roos
PLANS FOR FUTURE: Suicide
PHOTOS: No

It's a lot more suitable for long country driving than mx5, for every reason. I'd never ever own a large six cylinder if I lived in the city, but the fuel thirst, blind spots, and turning circle, aren't really a problem in the country. For the money you get a lot of luxury features in a ute. On the first page of this thread in 2011 I posted about my 1994 hilux, the falcon is like a Rolls Royce compared to the hilux, so fancy.

Function over form for me
Agreed with you. Every car I've ever owned slowly becomes my next racecar. For me driving experience is everything but I sort of understand the other side as well. What annoys me is when people take a fantastic sports car and stance it and attach huge wings because that to me is fake. It's the pretention of speed and performance without any actual cred to back it up.

With you there, I'm a little over engine mods. I'm a little over finicky turbo motors if anything. I just want enough power to have fun on the street and if I want a track monster with a million horsepower I'll build one for that purpose.

I may have a new motorcycle purchase coming up...

Looking at some motorcycles over my Christmas break from work... found two that I am very, very interested in...

One has an engine that has carked it... doesn't look incredibly hard to fix though (I've already downloaded a service manual)
