Exclamation Urgent school assignment

Hi everybody

As an school assignment I just need to know some answers on these questions.
I hope that you all can help me.

- What do you use your car for?
- What is your opinion on tuned cars?
- If you can choose between an old car (f.e. mercedes 200) or a new technological car (f.e. Mercedes e200) what would you chose?
- Which car you think is the best ever made?

I hope that everybody can help me with this assignment

-Driving (commuting)
-Depends on the mods (and the car being modded for that matter).
-Depends on the car
-The Formula 1 cars in the early 90s

1 - I typically use a car for easier access to areas outside of my city; this is often doctor visits, camping trips, or visiting friends in rural WI. I've been a lifelong avid cyclist and I'd rather bike than drive, so my response is likely not typical for a car enthusiast.

2 - Depends entirely on how they were modified. Some are incredible, some are so gaudy they damage my brain cells.

3 - The classic!

4 - That's a tough one, but my top pick is the Mclaren F1.

1-commuting and blasting down country roads
2-Assuming you mean actual tuned cars where every part is carefully chosen for performance they are the greatest thing on this planet. referring to customized cars that are often referred to as tuned, but are generally cars with oversized non-functional wings and loud exhausts they are terrible.
3-

4-Call me a ricer or a fanboy if you must but I'm gonna say R34 GT-R

1. transportation and fun
2. depends on the car and what you mean by tuned.
3. 9/10 times, new. Very few exceptions. Chief among being...
4. Ferrari F40 or McLaren F1.


also enders, why F1 of the early 90s? MP4/4 or F2004 were and always will be the kings.

Not really sure... I just loved seeing Senna and the other drivers of that age go around corners at 200MPH with one hand, though both Senna and Prost did end up racing the MP4/4 and putting up some absolutely bonkers times.

- What do you use your car for? Going to work mostly
- What is your opinion on tuned cars? I love american muscle that is tuned, ricer cars not so much.
- If you can choose between an old car (f.e. mercedes 200) or a new technological car (f.e. Mercedes e200) what would you chose? New tech is better.
- Which car you think is the best ever made? Best ever made....the 1993 Chevy Cavalier Wagon/most in love with 1969 GTO Judge

- What do you use your car for?
Work, running chores, long trips. It is the definition of a daily driver. We're falling way behind on maintenance, though.
- What is your opinion on tuned cars?
That depends, if the owner has equal brains and money, it's not bad. Sometimes a better car than the manufacturer intended. If the owner is just throwing money at it, in the hopes of achieving something, then it could be a rolling turd.
- If you can choose between an old car (f.e. mercedes 200) or a new technological car (f.e. Mercedes e200) what would you chose?
Personally, why not both? But, this is a school assignment and you need a binary answer to your binary question. I would choose the older for the ease of maintenance. Less complex systems leading to a less complex diagnosis/repair.
- Which car you think is the best ever made?
Ferrari F40.

- What do you use your car for? Getting to work, the shops and socialising
- What is your opinion on tuned cars? Don't touch them
- If you can choose between an old car (f.e. mercedes 200) or a new technological car (f.e. Mercedes e200) what would you chose? New, reliability and more economical
- Which car you think is the best ever made? Good question, not sure
