    yes, I have added nitrous, lots of suspension mods, better brakes, and several engine mods
    - What was the main reason for purchasing the car that you have?
    Practicality and looks

    1 car, I will get another after I graduate for a daily driver
    - What is the most important thing for you about a car? (looks, functionality, quickness, interior space, etc…)
    pleasure of driving, then looks
    - Is safety important when buying a car?
    Not generally
    - What are your feeling about older (60’s and 70’s) car designs and the car designs of today? Would you rather one or the other?
    Older cars are great, but not for daily driving. New cars will always have the upper hand in reliablity and practicality, but will never have the nostalga or heritage of a classic.

    No

    4000, parents

    Very important. without a car, I would not be able to go to the school I do, or get to work in a reasonable time/fashion.
    - Have you always had a car when you needed one? If not how did this affect you and how did you get around?
    No, I had to ride my bicycle and bum rides.
    - Do you prefer American made care or foreign made cars and why?
    Each has a place. Foreign cars in general require less maitence, and are excellent driving appliances. American cars often times look better are more fun to drive and give heritage in some models.

    1993 Ford Mustang

    I call it Baby most of the time
    - Do you talk to your car?
    Oh for sure
    - Do you have any special feelings towards your car, positive or negative?
    Mostly positive, sometimes negative when it breaks down, I guess we car people have more "special feelings" towards our cars than most other people

    Either my car with a turbo and all the work done to it that I want to do eventually, or a newer Mustang, either a Mach 1 or a Cobra

    I needed a car and I liked how it looked, it's all gone downhill from there ;)

    It's my first car, I hope to never sell it
    - How many cars have you had and why did you switch cars? If you have only had one, do you plan on switching and why?
    Only this one, I hope to always drive a Mustang, I might have something else as a DD but I would keep a Stang to work on
    - What is the most important thing for you about a car? (looks, functionality, quickness, interior space, etc…)
    I guess the entire package, it just has to appeal to me all around
    - Is safety important when buying a car?
    Of course! I wouldn't buy a car knowing it wouldn't protect me reasonably in an accident
    - What are your feeling about older (60’s and 70’s) car designs and the car designs of today? Would you rather one or the other?
    I love how old muscle cars look so beefy and mean, but I don't think I prefer one or the other

    lol Of course I prefer Ford, but I'm not really biased, I would drive lots of other cars

    $4700 Canadian plus like a million dollars worth of repairs, my dad took out a loan for me and I pay it back every month

    It gets me around, it keeps me busy keeping it running, something to spend money on, my main hobby/interest
    - How important is your car to your way of life?
    Extremely, it's a huge part of my daily life

    - Do you prefer American made care or foreign made cars and why?
    I don't really have a preference, I love my domestic car but i don't have a problem with imports

    Blue, not dark, not light. Kinda... like the color of those Dasani water bottles :p

    Sports, cuz its just so much more fun and a 2 seater is great for an 18 year old college student

    I didn't but the previous owner named it Ceasar, so I guess thats the name.

    - Do you talk to your car?
    Um... no?

    - Do you have any special feelings towards your car, positive or negative?
    I luff it.

    - Did you get the car that you wanted?
    Yes

    - Do you have a dream car? If so, what is it?
    2005 mustang... oh, those look so pretty. Or this one, just a little faster.

    - Do you do any work to your car to change the appearance or performance? If so what have you done or would like to do?
    I haven't yet, only because I just got it and it's currently across the country. But in a week I'll actually HAVE it, so yay!

    - What was the main reason for purchasing the car that you have?
    mobility and its a great car

    - Is this your first car? If so do you feel more of an attachment to it because it’s your first car? If not do you still have an attachment to your first car?
    My veeeery first car, and how am I supposed to know if I feel more attachment because its the first? What can I compare it to?

    - How many cars have you had and why did you switch cars? If you have only had one, do you plan on switching and why?
    Only this one

    - What is the most important thing for you about a car? (looks, functionality, quickness, interior space, etc…)
    Everything, but I really love the way it looks... even though that shouldn't be important, eh? :p

    - Is safety important when buying a car?
    Very

    - What are your feeling about older (60’s and 70’s) car designs and the car designs of today? Would you rather one or the other?
    I love the older designs, which is why I love the new mustang. I would rather an older design.

    - Do you prefer a specific make of cars over another and why?
    Ford, because of the Mustang and Mustang because it's my first car, and I'm bias. But other than that I'm not a big fan of American cars :-\

    - How much did your car cost you and how did you get the money to pay for it?
    I don't know how much it cost origionally but I paid 8,000 and my dad paid the other 2,500

    - What does having a car mean for you?
    Mobility... :p

    - How important is your car to your way of life?
    I used to live in Chicago and there I could pretty much get around without a car (the El, busses, walking, etc) but now I live in Norfolk, va where its impossible to leave the campus of my college without one, so its VERY important to my way of life.


    - Have you always had a car when you needed one? If not how did this affect you and how did you get around?
    NO, I don't HAVE it right now and I definately need it. I can't do a lot of things that I would like to do and I have to bum rides off my friends all the time which really gets on my nerves because I love driving and I miss it like crazy.

    - Do you prefer American made care or foreign made cars and why?
    Foreign, because through expierence ive noticed that they are more reliable than american cars - but the mustang is definately an exception! :flag:

    - Is your car a he,she, or an it?
    Um.. I guess since the pervious owner named it Ceasar its a he... but I really have no prefrence.

    - Is the sound of your car important, if so, what should it sound like?
    Well, its not that important but if it went "vroooooom!" that would be nice
