I bought a car! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif

It's not the biggest, fastest or flashiest set of wheels on the road, but it's the first car I've ever bought outright (hooray for liberation from financing)!!! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/music1.gif

Aww... thanks, Bosley. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif

If my car really was as bad as that little rust-bucket, I'd be knocking them dead with the exhaust fumes! ;)

This is my REAL new (old) car:

Not bad Jiao. At least she will get you to where you need to be. And besides, the Bosley's have our fancy wheels safely hidden away. But I know how we can sneak in and take them for a spin around the town. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/mischievous.gif :D

Dear Santa <ahem> Bosley,

I've been a good Angel all year (except for that little incident with the cattle-prod http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif )... so I was wondering if you could please provide the following:

1) a Bugatti Veyron:

http://www.car-data.com/photos.previews/p.bugatti.veyron.25.jpg

2) a military standard Humvee:

http://www.cars-online.com/images/used_hummer.gif

I know it's a lot to ask, but I have absolute faith in your scouting abilities! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif

Your affectionate Angel,

Jiao xxx

Just curious, but what does "sprog" mean? Clearly slang from your country of residence, but in Australia??? You would not want the Australian version of sprog anywhere near your car. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yuck.gif

http://www.prioritydesigns.com/sven/images/mag2.jpgHi LC8290! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif I used to drive a Cooper (four Minis in a row, in fact http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/clown.gif ). They are absolutely sterling little cars! Although I'd be loathe to drive one over here (Stateside), cos American autos grow to immense proportions and I'd be concerned about my Cooper getting squished. :eek:

laracroft8290
08-12-03, 13:45
They aren't as small as the original, those were tiny. They are more like a Honda Civic just more….cute.

Speaking of getting crushed, the Mini Cooper S goes 0-60MPH in 6.9 seconds. I live in a metropolitan city and here the average speed on the highway is 80MPH, while the stated limit is 55-65MPH. That's one of the first things I will test is its ability to get up to speed on the entrance ramps :D
