Braided saying hi

Hey guys,

I'm braided (and) from the Netherlands.

My girl & I run three cars:
- A Ssangyong Korando (Also known as Daewoo Korando) 2.3D, which we use to tow a horsetrailer. It uses more diesel than they can burn in hell, it's dead slow, but it's stronger than a tank and weighs like one too, so therefore fits in with the idea of moving horses. It runs about 20 mpg and I don't think I'll be doing anything to change that.
- Then there's the Geo Metro Convertible 1.0 Automatic: It used to be a Californian car but it was imported in 1994, I got it about a week ago just for fun and driving to work while it rains. Don't know anything about mileage yet.
- Our daily driver is a CitroŽn AX 1.5 Diesel. This should be thť ecomodders car: It does 57 mpg dead stock, but still will give you a 0-60 of 13 seconds and a top speed of 105 mph (it will sit happily at it's top speed all day long while drinking away 37 mpg). Apart from that, it's really comfy and not even that noisy.

I will be doing some small modifications to the last two cars, but the main reason for coming here is just fun.

It is. But it weighs only 1852 pounds with a full tank of diesel, and has a 1527cc Peugeot n/a diesel engine.

The low weight makes it quick, Peugeot/CitroŽn underpinnings make it comfy, and well.. it's a diesel

Hey, braided! Welcome to the site! Depending upon your sense of humor, about the most fun you can have is over at MPaulHolmes threads. My favorite is this one: http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...sion-2373.html

The guy is hilarious, and not afraid of anything... It'll take a couple of days to go through the thread, but it's worth it!

Thanks for the tip! I might be dumping the AX Diesel so if anybody is interested... I'm not afraid of shipping it somewhere!

Anything that you're thinking of selling, put in the Want Ads here on the site. There are a few members over in that part of the world, and one of them might be interested!
