the cars here in israel

in israel you can see anything

you can see lots of compact jap's family cars like lots of corolla's lots of mazda 3's lots of everything !!

lots of american vans , lots of european , lots of improved and tuned up cars , lots of sport cars like miata's mr2 kind and more.

its really like you might see in europe , we got lots of german cars in here like BMW mercedes and volkswagen .

but most of the cars people here use are compact or executives like mazda 6 honda accord toyota avensis volkswaggen passat subaru b-4 etc etc etc

damn we got everything here . in mass amounts . every family here got at least 1 or 2 cars.

in israel you have to be at least 17 years old to go for a driving test after at least 28 driving classes with a driving teacher.

its not like usa where you can learn with your parents , here learning driving its some expensive shit.

to me it cost somthing like 3000 shekels somthing like 666 us dollars.

I'm 17 years old, been driving for 1 and a half year. Drove 10 times with a driving teacher starting February 2nd 2003, got permit to drive with my parents a few weeks later but still drove alone hehe. then got my licens February 2nd 2004 and have been driving since This Colt is amazing, I've made it to 160 km/h on this 1300cc 74,8hp carburrettor engine, the timing belt snapped in two and ran for a few secondsl like that but engine is still running, and I drove into a garden while being stupid and having fun on a narow road in snow, but it still is like nothing has happaned to it!

but now I'm selling it for a BMW, which I'm hopefully trading for a Nissan 200SX S13

Well at least I admit it was stupid of me to do. I was very lucky that it was "just" a garden I crashed into and the only damage to my car was a bent front bumper, blown tire and a little peice on the gearbox got a hole in it. Changed tire, that little thingy on the tranny, refilled the oil and was out driving again Than wheel correction came later...
