for me at least, the reason why I want to drive is just the freedom to go where I want, when I want. I'm so fed up with public transport where I live (over £2 to go under 2 miles by bus). Also to the nearest city (cardiff) it takes less than 40 minutes driving, but over an hour by train (or 2 hours by bus).

Wow. That's really not so much 'pimp my ride' as 'blimp my ride'.

I like cars because they get me about in warmth, comfort and relatively quickly. I guess I spend so much money trying to get one that goes and looks as fast and as pretty as possible because of the hobby aspect, but also because it's something I use and enjoy so regularly, and costs so much anyway, that I might as well get one that I'm gonna enjoy every time I sit in it

I drive because I can. It gives me the freedom to go places in half the time compared to public transport. Plus, I can decide to go anywhere on a whim, rather than think "Okay, it's the 9:50 train, and then the 14:35 back..." Really there's not much else I enjoy about cars - yes, ''when I'm older'' I'll probably sit around thinking about which car to get next, but I couldn't care less right now because I'm just using mine to get from A to B really.

Eventually, I'll be selling mine on to get a bit more cash for the first year of uni, but until then I have to cope with it being a vehicle that costs a king's ransom to drive, insure, and get MOT'd every year. Thankfully, it all ends in September. Huzzah! And then I don't have to think about cars until 2012 at least.

lol jog on

havent heard that in a while. if i remember i was in liverpool with an absolute dumb ****

i like people being angry at me through ignorance, its like im winning twice
But winning an internet argument is like winning the special olympics.
Sure you may have won, but you're still a ******.

Honestly, don't babble on about your life story, or the fact you think you're better than everyone else, just move on.

you dont relise how much you need a car till you actually get one. just like you wouldnt know how much you needed a computer if youd never had one.

Totally agree, I never saw the big deal in cars but now I have one, I just love driving and hate public transport which generally tends to be full of OAP's, weirdos and chavs half the time. Take my trip to work yesterday for example, its a 40 minute trip in the car, or a 2 hour (if I time it right) trip on public transport, my cars boned at the minute so I had to get the bus, the man sat directly in front of me, for the entire journey, kept full on licking and nibbling his glasses case . I miss my car.

honestly the best part about my car? the fact that instead of payin £3 for a bus ticket to work per day i pay £10 per week of petrol and im away. plus it lasts longer than jus the bus journey too and from work. my insurance is £700 a yr and my tax is £115. therefore i pay £780 to get the bus JUST to and from work. without the fact that i have a 1yr old i may have stuck to public transport a bit longer.

I'm not a big fan of cars but I do drive. Like others have said, it gives you more freedom to go to places and I work late at night when there is no public transport. Well I do only live down the road from my work but considering I would have to walk through an isolated industrial estate with dangerous paths and I have been attacked twice before; I take the car.

Purely for the fun of it.
I'll often take the car out just for kicks.

I went out for a drive with my local MG owners club the other day. Did 200 miles in various weather conditions and it was great fun.
