Board: /o/

"/o/ - Auto" is 4chan's imageboard for discussing cars and motorcycles.

Personality test 2
A few weeks ago I posted what I felt was an interesting and compelling situation to get folks talking and debating. The tread turned out better than I had hoped so I've been thinking of another choice to present. I'm not sure this one will have as much engagement as there is no designed contention; only pure choice. Here it is:

Brute power vs balanced agility. It's two schools of thought that tends to become a passionate debate. Today you're given a choice between a 1st generation NSX Type R or a Challenger Hellcat. But here's the rub, you can only enjoy the NSX on Daytona's road course configuration and the Challenger on Suzuka. Tracks that I felt contrast each cars strengths. What are your tastes? Do you take the Honda on a wide open track with long stretches for big power? Or are you up to the challenge of trying to tame the Hellcat through the technical corners of Suzuka?

smog fail
I just bought this 87 Toyota Corolla after it had been sitting for about two years. I changed the oil, air filter and spark plugs when I got it. There was about a quarter tank of old gasoline in the tank when I bought it, but I was unable to suck it out with a pump so I just put some seafoam in there and then filled the rest up with new gas to dilute it.

It's currently on non-op so I haven't had a chance to actually drive it hard on the freeway or anything, other than just going around the block.

What do the mechanics of /o/ suggest I do from here? I'm trying to save money but I also just want to get this car registered and on the road.

Holding on to beloved shitboxes
Should I sell my 2000 Subaru Impreza? it's got 168k miles and a 5-speed manual. It is a fun to drive and reliable car but it's my second car, should I sell it /o/ or will I massively regret it in the future? Some zoomer is offering me $5k for it and I picked it up for $1200 2 years ago so it's tempting.

Man I really thought the 720S was faster than this, then again it makes sense as it's not as planted or as aerodynamic as most of the sub 7 second cars . Itll destroy the SVJ , GT2 RS Huracan Performante in a straight line, but when it comes to handling and aerodynamics it just cant compete, well I guess we'll just have to wait for the Senna to give it a go or for the 760LT to come out and give it a try.

I'm stranded 100s of miles from home. My car can reverse. When I try to go forward its super fucking rocky, the best way I can describe is like theres a rock caught between the wheels or something (I checked, there isn't). The engine doesn't really knock I don't think its just the power barely getting to the wheels. It just randomly started happening when I pulled off the highway. Any ideas? Again, car can turn on, reverse, no signs of anything wrong, then when I try to accelerate in drive its like the wheels jammed up but it will go forward.

Another thing is I found a fried rat under the hood caught between some wires, possible he shorted something?

Can a Vegasbro help me out? Long story short, I bought a non running car that's been out of registration for at least 5 years, got it running again but now I need to obviously driving around and then get it smogged. of course I could just go to the DMV and get a movement permit which is easy enough, but For some reason all the DMV's in the city are absolutely swamped right now and the soonest appointment is like three and a half weeks away and I really don't want to wait that long. I tried just popping in after work but I couldn't even find parking, the same like 10 cars including me were roving around the parking lot for 20 minutes before I gave up and left.
My question is if I slap on plates from my other car and drive around, obviously if I don't drive a like a dick I should be fine, but if I go to get smogged will the tech check my plates or say anything? obviously I've gotten smogs done before, but I've always been inside paying for it while he's in the middle of it and he's done by the time I get out so I don't hundred percent know what else he does besides plug in the computer and press some buttons.

Hey, /o/, this past Saturday I purchased a used '17 GT350 and when I was looking at the car on the lot I was going though all the stuff on the gauge cluster. I noticed on the pressure sensors that one tire was way low so I took a picture of the screen showing the low tire pressure. I also took a picture of the tire but it didn't look flat. Anyways, I told them as I was purchasing the vehicle to look at the tires to make sure they didn't have any nails in them and to air them up for the test drive. They aired them up and assured me the tire did not have any punctures and that it was just low from the car sitting. So now yesterday I noticed that the same tire was low again and turns out there's a big fucking nail in the tire like I presumed. If I contact the dealership where I bought it do you think they will help me out on getting some tires? They practically lied straight to my face and said they looked at the tire and didn't see anything. What are some key phrases I should say if I call them to get a higher chance of them agreeing to help me out?

Am I an idiot for wanting to buy a CPO German car from a dealer? I feel like I'm in a good enough financial situation that I can take out a 3-year low interest loan on something like an E-class (pic related) or 5-series. I know I'd probably get raped on insurance and maintenance is kind of expensive but I feel like it isn't too bad. I want a car that I can keep for 10+ years. Should I just buy something cheaper and boring or is my idea somewhat realistic?

jacking engine by harmonic balancer?
oil pan removal
Need to remove oil pan on a 72 Nova. As pictured, in step 11 of the procedure in my vehicle's "Owner's Workshop Manual," it says to jack up the engine by the harmonic balancer. I'm very hesitant to do so. Is this an out-dated practice?

A buddy had previously said to jack it up by the oil pan itself. Would this be a better alternative?

Advice Thread: Wheels and Tires
volk nrs
I'm planning on getting new wheels for my old 323f(bg) currently on 13' steelies with 175/70 and looking to change into some 15' Volk nrs's with r888's (205/50 i think, 3000km used)

Now my question is i cant really seem to find any data on how much the steelies weigh and what how much heavier/lighter it is than the Volks

Sidenote: I think i'm getting a decent deal at 600 euro for the set, but i cant find any reliable pricing for the volk's. is it decent?

also any other advice to a poor student getting into the car scene?

What Is The Best Luxury Car For Poorfags?
Why do I have to be a poorfag? I've spent two years saving up $20,000 for a nice car, but I have my sights set on a Maserati Quattroporte and those might as well cost just as much to own as a weekend car because there's no way I'll be able to own that car (not to mention insurance) with $2,200/month after bills and expenses. I'm really just looking for a car with an orgasming exhaust note like the Quattroporte, but there's nothing like that that can be affordable to own and American V8's don't sound that great.
Does anyone have any ideas in what to look for? Preferably a performance car with a nice, clean exhaust note that isn't rotory, American V8, or lawn mower that's also relatively easy on the wallet?

Classic Car Parts
tl;dr I need a good source on a Gas Door/Licence Plate mount for a 1965 Pontiac GTO, either used parts or a restoration-quality one.

Greetings /o/, I have a stick up my ass about OEM car parts. When I backed up and took the mirror off my 93' T-100 a year or two back, I got the last passenger-side mirror out of a warehouse in Portland apparently but was happy to have gotten it because some small part of me wanted the keep the car "whole" with its original parts. Same thing when I lost the oil cap for my Corolla, because I couldn't get my fingers around the aftermarket one I purchased in order to loosen it. It's just satisfying for some reason getting a hold of pristine OEM parts that you know are gonna work properly, match well, and aren't cheap knockoffs. Anyway, out of habit I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions for a source on classic car parts, specifically for the Gas Door on a 1965 Pontiac GTO. The old one rusted to death and I would prefer either a reliable source on used OEM parts or a good restoration-quality set of parts. Do you anons have any good recommendations for part sources?

Expensive Number Plates
$208000 Plate
Why do people pay six-figure sums for numerical licence plates?
I subscribe to Shannons auction emails, the licence plates sell for absolutely obscene sums, much more than most of the cars.
What is the appeal to collecting these? Is this as common overseas as it is in Australia? Are these being bought exclusively by nouveau riche, Chinese millionaires and investors hoping to sell to Chinese millionaires? Are there really enough people with that much money who care so much about these plates to justify the prices?
I'm at a complete loss to explain this. The prices in the link are not unusually high, this is a normal sample of any Shannons auction.

FUCKING NEVER EVER. MONTHS. It took months for me to stumble across this deal and condition Volvo. I think this is the universe trying to tell me something /o/. I think I'm just going to give in and buy a fucking crossover.
