i am 20, but the trouble i have is that i have two non fault claims, that adds £500 onto the price of the policy, tried the one i have just got and with the faults taken off the price went down to £800, i dont see how it is fair to be penalised that much for having two accidents that werent my fault, but so be it...

the first crash was a hit and run, so i had to claim for that.. but it was settled, and the second was when someone pulled right out infront of me, and rearranged the front end of the 206.. i have had another crash, but that was settled via the post office, one of their vans tried to overtake two cars at once, got past the guy behind me and got level with the back of my car, then realised that there was someone coming the other way so pulled back in quickly.. taking the rear quarter panel of the car with him..

i hate insurance.. lol.. if i had accidents which were my fault i could understand, but i dont understand that much money for accidents which werent my fault..

Pfft, you shouldnt have gotten that charger, driven the Geo for a year or 2 more to get the chalenger, lol. I'm not a fan of the new chargers. But nonetheless, they are SWEET cars.

Hah, I know that feeling. I'm 18, male and driving a BMW. I'm just a walking target for insurance companies.

Seriously. Dodge totally f-cked up the Charger. It's powerful with the Hemi and all that, but who cares? They screwed up with the classic nature of the vehicle. At least they didn't do the same with the Challenger or I'd have to declare everyone at Dodge mentally handicapped.

They stopped after 2005. Toyota only sold 3,113 of them that year.

I'm not a big fan of the Celica though. I liked the Supra Mk. IV more...the 2JZ-GE engine is pretty beastly. Easily one of the best Japanese engines along with the RB26DETT and the VR38DETT.

My all-time favorite Toyota has to be the AE86 Sprinter Trueno. What a legendary car...
