A Nissan Primera Sport, 6-speed gearbox and the best toy ever: Reversing cameras! I drove that thing around backwards without looking at the windows/mirrors. very weird.

Several days ago: Wiesmann Roadster through German twisties in the rain. Nothing else will satisfy me now.

I drove a Renault Symbol, on my favourite mountain road. It was a girl's car, which means tire pressure was all wrong, it wasn´t remotely fast, plus the accelerator was sticking. Not a very nice experience...

A lawn tractor. After I finished cutting my grandpas lawn with it I tested it out full throttle down the road. Full Throttle = A little less then 20kmh

I just drove a good Korean car. Yes, miracles do happen. My Father's/Dad's Hyundai Lantra Sportswagon (1997 model, I think)

Lucky git.

Honestly, the more I like at the Wiesmann, the more I'm liking it.

I just drove a Kia Rio off the dealer lots for fun. Those cars are POS!!
My friends and I was driving an automatic and I was romping on the to see how fast the car can punch and everyone was having fun, maybe not the salesman, but his opinion doesn't count when test driving cars. Anyways the car stalls on us. The stupid thing only had 10+ miles on it and it was struggling to run ALREADY! I learned something that saturday, I will never buy a Kia or any company that is strongly affliated with Kia in my life!

The "I just drove a..." Thread.

Ok, every once in a while I come across rare and random opportunities to drive expensive and/or fun cars. Didn't have a place to post it, and I figured I'm probably not the only one with these privileges, so I thought I'd start this thread.

What did you drive? How'd you come about doing so? Would you ever buy one?

So, to begin. Today I was golfing with the Honda/Hyundai team. My boss's wife showed up from Vancouver, and she had brought her boss's Lexus SC430 down with her. I politely asked for the keys, after which I proceded to drop the top and fly out of the parking lot and straight onto the backroads. What a neat experience! The only downside about the thing is that it doesn't come with a 6speed manual, and only an auto. Drives nicely, but imo a car of this class is solely a status symbol. Unlike a 911, it can't really be had a lot of fun in. Manual makes all the difference. I'd buy one...for my grandpa or wife.

Nice to see this thread. And a coincidence too. Got a ride in our neighbours new second-handed Renault Avantime 2.0 16v yesterday. I didn't drive it myself, but the car feels huge. Everything is based on creating space but still the car gives a classy feeling. It was a 'pretty' nice car.
