So I know most of us like cars or else we wouldn't be here. Just wondering what people have for a background image on their computer. Here is mine:

Here is a link (http://home.ripway.com/2004-3/84054/GT40/Ford-GT40wow.jpg) to the larger image if anyone wants it

Would both of you scale down your pics...it's quite annoying...and I've only been telling this to everyone for the past few days now...

Maybe they can understand your edit and delete finger. :banghead: Do we all have to be annoyed?

I'll give them a chance to do it themselves first...then I hit the button.

Voda was the smart one...he provided a link if the wallpaper was interesting enough to someone. Thanks for putting some thought in, Voda!

what is up with people and scooby's? :screwy:

i have an app that plays my screensaver as my desktop. right now i have flying toasters gracefully flying across my desktop.

posted by  enron fever

I'm sorry, what is a scooby??

posted by  Voda48

subaru. one characteristic of subaru cars is the prominent hood scoop. therefore, the moniker "Scooby" was born. :thumbs:

*edit*
almost forgot. there is a friendly rivalry amongst the more serious saab and subaru owners, so it's kind of expected that a saab afficionado such as myself would refer to subaru's by their nickname scooby.

hope that explains everything.

posted by  enron fever

I know "obsessed" :PP

posted by  agent_b

I got you. I guess I have just never heard that term used before. Saab lovers use it then mainly huh??

posted by  Voda48

I guess. I'm not really a Saab lover, however my mom has a Saab and I've found myself liking every minute of being in it. Except for the massive blind spots (it's a 2001 Saab 93 Turbo Vert)

posted by  Satty101

noooo.. ;)

Scooby comes from Scooby Doo, which sounds similar to Subaru. It's been a pet name/nickname for Subarus since the days of the early Subaru Brat in the '70s, which had no hood scoops.

When we are on wallpapers... my school took away the ability to change one's desktop, so I programmed a excecutable on Visual Basic that overrides it... good stuff...

whatever. let's see your little toy- i mean scooby last 277k miles without having a thermal breakdown and then we'll talk :thumbs:

You know it could and still kick the a*s of anything in your garage!

posted by  StiMan

Subarus are very reliable and long lasting, given normal check ups and maintenance. What car do you have?

Well, i changed my sig again cuz my wallpaper changed, but i still love subarus.

posted by  importluva

i personally have a saab, which is the 18 year old 277k miles one. most expensive thing we've had to do to it is replace the rotors and calipers awhile back. and if you think your special because a turbo'd plastic car can out-run it, you should realize that a minivan is faster than it. but then again, i highly doubt your little wrx will last even close to 18 years.

posted by  enron fever

Wow where did this hostility come from??

posted by  Voda48

Damn. :screwy:

posted by  Satty101

uhhh...i'm not sure how you guys are reading that as hostility. i answered his question. you guys take things waaaay to seriously if you think i meant that in a hostile way :screwy:

posted by  enron fever

Well in that case I have a 1930 dodge. That is 74 years old and all original!!! ....how bout them apples :mrgreen: (just playing, but here is a picture of it taken a few years ago with my sis driving)

posted by  Voda48

Voda..that picture is absolutelly massive, is there any way you can down size it so it's abit quicker to load up? :ohcrap:

posted by  Cliffy

lol...saab...subaru...gm. They are all linked so im afraid you are basically dissing a car that shares some of its components with saabs. The new wrxs are using interiors from saab, and probably other things i am not aware of, just so you know.
As a matter-of-fact, i do think wrxs are special as they've been the best-selling subaru and top 10 buys ever since it came to the US. Also, the wrx is one of the few cars that can be modded into an insanely fast car, yet it can still serve as a daily driver and even as a family car.
Now, i could care less if any car lasted 18 years. These days, most people get newer cars so frequently that 10+ years from a car is not necessary. So, you can gloat about your car's longevity but no one cares.
As for a minivan being faster, sure, anything can be made fast, even shit like a minivan, but you cant deny that the minivan is still shit.

I dont see any hostility here, im just replying to your reply :thumbs:

i'll work on it. it is 1.67mb. I am trying to study for finals :doh:

About the GM and Subaru thing...
I will admit that GM owns some of Subaru, but not enough to make an huge difference.... the companies that are intertwined within GM do share some things, but as you can tell GM has yet to destroy Subaru, and so obviously has done very little involving it....

posted by  StiMan

You know it will, some of the oldest road-going cars I have seen are Subarus... they are reliable and can easily last 18 years if you care for them...

posted by  StiMan

im hopin it'll stay that way. But you gotta admit, the saab's interior is a huge upgrade over what subaru used to put in the wrxs. I just hope GM wont distribute subaru's AWD and engines or put their engines into subarus, that will just ruin the whole uniqueness and flavor of subaru cars.

posted by  importluva

Regardless of who owns Subaru, They would have upgraded the interior because the old one was out dated :2cents:

posted by  Cliffy

i totally agree :thumbs:

Be careful about using the word rims. THere has been much dispute over the correct title and most people here feel that that is "wheel" not "rim".

Never really understood that one. Same thing with NOS and Nitrous Oxide. I mean if you ask for a kleenex somone hands you a tissue. Irregaurdless to the fact that a kleenex is a brand of tissue. Yes I know that the rim is'nt technically the whole wheel, but you get what that person means. No need to get super technical... right?

NOS is a company that makes Nitrous Oxide, there is a differnece there. There are many more companies out there that make Nitrous for car :thumbs:

posted by  Inygknok

If I'm understanding you correctly, Yes...just like you posted the pic in your sig.

EDIT: OH...No...apparently the url it assigns to the uploaded pic is not a proper "image" url other than to "attach" it.

Bav,
In my opinion, you have WAY to many icons on your desktop. I however like the pic :thumbs:

My desktop used to have half of the screen covered with icons, but then I discovered the joyous system known as "Unused Desktop Icons" what a joyous thing... :thumbs:

Crap shows up on desktop all the time. If you don't want it, right click on the icon you don't want and click delete.

True, but the crap I want, but dont want on my desktop just goes into the unused thing... I delete stuff all the time, its the stuff that is somewhat useful that I use Unused Icons for...

I like the car and think Chevy (GM) would be smart if they make this a production car.

posted by  car_crazy89

Seems kinda cartoony in its ballon shape doesnt it?

posted by  NISSANSPDR

Ya, i didnt really notice it until you mentioned it but it kinda does. I dont think it would look exactly like that even if they do put it into production, they tend to make great looking concepts but take those great styling cues away when making it a production car.

This is supposedly the concept Yenko Camaro.

posted by  car_crazy89

I hate that Chevy grill...why they got use it in EVERYTHING!

posted by  NISSANSPDR

Because it's a Chevy maybe?

posted by  Satty101

Haha well what better way to save money then re-using parts from other cars. Not the best idea but whatever works i guess. I still feel it would give the Mustang a run for its money (depending on price range).
