I promised last week to start this thread as a place where we could post pics of our cars here. If you've got a car that's dear to your heart, share it here with your fellow forum members. If you can, post a pic of you with your ride. Thanks.

Here are a few of my new set of wheels that I got last week, a 2006 Dodge Charger:

Nice car, but I'm worried. They seem to have put the steering wheel on the wrong side

They did that on purpose. Since we North Americans persist in driving on the wrong side of the road, they thought that putting the wheel on the wrong side would help. It's worked fine, so far. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Actually, I spent all of my renown just getting the Charger. If I had brought home the Hemi V-8, I would have incurred negative renown, something along the lines of sinking a hospital ship. As it was, this was as much as I dared for. The 3.5 litre engine is still pretty good; fast enough for my driving style. It has the ponies when I have to pass someone and is not as fuel thirsty as the Hemi. The Hemi is not all that bad on the highway for fuel efficiency, but really takes a hit in city driving. I would have liked the Hemi, but really, it would only be for ego's sake. I'm mostly a stick to the speed limit kind of guy, with a perfect driving record to prove it. If I had that Hemi, I'm sure I would soon find a way to get into trouble with it.

Top photo, passenger side. It's the black thing snaking along the front panel, then up alongside the windscreen with the round thingy (Donaldson pre cleaner) on top. Bottom 2 photos are earlier than the top one (its the latest). Most snorkels have an air ram on top which is damm usless 'cos all it does then is ram dirty air into your air cleaner element. If it ain't got a Donalson on top, its a w***ker show off thing/toy. Better off not having one basically.

Hmmm, women, are http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif delightful, but a distraction. It is a common misconception that women as decoration and vehicles go together.

Women in car photos are used to sell cars, to buyers, real or imagined or used as trophys. Sexist too.

Driving well, no exceptionally well, in a vehicle perfectly suited to its task is a singular experience. As a professional driver, I can assure you there is a time and place for all things but sadly, often not together.

Nice looking ride, Blue 76. I considered getting a Pontiac Vibe a few years ago, but we ended up with a Pontiac Grand Am instead. Looking back over the whole thing, I would have been better off with the Vibe [or its twin, the Toyota Matrix.] The decision to go with the Grand Am was purely for space purposes only, being the need for a bit more room in the backseat for a third passenger. What I regret was that I didn't actually sit in that middle rear seat before I got the car. The middle seat is very stiff, almost as if they put a plank in the middle and just covered it with an inch of cheap foam padding. This time round, I made sure to sit in the middle rear seat of the Charger. Not that I intend to ever use it, but at least I won't hear complaints that it is too stiff on those rare occasions when I have five people in my car.

Baldrick's Mate, now I see your schnorkel after you pointed it out. Clever that. How watertight is the passenger compartment when you go deep fording like that? I remember back in 1980 when I was training for my military driver's license, going fording in the big "deuce & a halfs" the Canadian army was using. They had been in service for something like twenty years, very ancient by that point. We had a big pipe in the crew compartment for air intake when deep fording, not quite as elegant as your setup. After twenty or so years of service, those old trucks weren't very watertight, either.

------------------------------------------------

Unprepared fording depth is 500mm-ish (20") and is so for most 4x4's. Preparations needed for deeper crossings are:

1) Lengthen diff breather pipes. Diffs alternately create slight pressures (good) and vacuums (bad), negative pressure can suck water into your diffs. This happens when a hot diff is suddenly cooled by entering water. One must wait for the diffs to cool after driving, before entering water. My breathers are extended so they terminate inside the upper area of the snorkel.

2) Fitting of accessories...sloppy grommeting, drilled holes, wires just poked through without sealent, this is not good. I have fitted this vehicle out and paid particular attention to this. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

3) Maintain OE door seals etc

4) Diesel engine, snorkel equipped, preferably...petrols have lots of electrics to get wet and stall the vehicle.

5) When driving through use a "blind" like a small tarp or piece of plastic card across the front of the vehicle, don't change gears (wet clutch!), and maintain a steady pace (bow wave) to prevent the engine bay filling up with water.

6) Don't cross if you don't have to! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/disagree.gif

7) Stay on the crossing track! Doh!

5) Enjoy detailing your vehicle! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I have since had it to about a metre deep + in an emergency situation...
