Okay:
Car: 2001 Subaru Liberty/Legacy RX Sedan

Engine: 2.5 litre 16v boxer four
Transmission: 5 speed manual driving all four wheels (and proper AWD, none of this part time crap!)
Brakes: Standard Subaru ABS equipped 4 wheel discs

Mods: couple of scratches, dirt, chips in the windscreen, 5 cent pieces lost down side of front seats

What I Like About My Ride: very high levels of grip afforded by excellent chassis and AWD, light yet communicative steering (in fact overall light physical effort of driving), flawless build quality, that characteristic sound of the boxer four, good engine, 16 inch wheel design, colour, ease of use of cruise control

What I Dont: front seats (need to be firmer), no trip computer, boot needs pull down strap, not sold on front bumper styling, woodgrain on dash, another 20hp would be nice, could do with a sixth gear on highway

What I Want For My Car: wouldn't mind a modchip (but can't - warranty), might change low beams to xeon globes, decent front seats, rear fog lights, not much else

Car: 1988 Mazda 323 SE Hatchback

Engine: 1.6l I.4, 82 hp or so...
Transmition: 4 Speed automatic with overdrive
Brakes: Discs up front, drums in back.

Mods: 323LX rims, seats, noise dampening, other LX stuff.

What I like about it: Cheap to operate, as reliable as the sun going up, always starts, runs mint, looks mint(minus slightly faded paint, warn SE stickers(OE stuff, I don't put stickers on it), and other minor stuff), goes in any weather, steers like a gocart, very responsive, and fun to drive.

What I don't like: Needs more power, 5 speed would help, wish it was a GTX...

What I want for my car: 626GT wheels, new tires(the current Bridgestone Taranzas have been on it for 6 years atleast, they aren't too good), factory Mazda Equilizer, place for the equilizer(duh! you'd think that they woulda had a place for it but no), dash cluster with tach, that's about it.
