Any one of those is more than $100,000.

I'm sure one could buy a Miata and have it race-ready, rip roaring rotar running for wayyyy less than that.

Stick that in your 289 :lol:

That would be interesting. I'll start. 2002 Ford F-150 Supercrew. Bought new and has 83,000 miles on it now. It has been a very good truck.

First car was a 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner and a 71 Fury III sport suburban, ugliest green ever. Then a 66 GTO , 86 Shelby GLHS, had another 69 RR while I was in the Corps, 98 Dodge Ram 2500 lifted 8 inches with 35's, 03' Ram 2500

and now a 77 Dodge Ramcharger .. if it's not a MoPar, chances are, you're wrong .. ;)

Actually I guess this could be a duplicate of the "What do you drive ?" thread.

yeah .. didn't mean to start anything ..

well .. I've built most of mine and have threads here. I'm more a sports car guy .. I don't even look at muscle cars as I consider them cheap cars with huge straight line engines .. of no interest to me. They DO sound good, though eheh.

I've had five Porsches and a couple Infiniti's of the G coupe variety .. standards with all the goodies. A triumph TR4. A pile of VW's. Right now I have a BMW X1 cause I need 4WD to get up my drive in winter. Guess I'm more a small tuned engine with good suspension person. And have no interest in what anyone thinks about what I drive ,, cause I drive it.

Was just being a wisebutt with that comment .. and meant no offense to anyone . . we all have different tastes, i.e. we get a LOT of choices in cars.. praise the Lord.

No worries. I was being a bit smart myself. :D

I guess the whole thing boils down to individual taste and opinions, and just like belly buttons, everybody has one! And not necessarily the taste part. :lol:

Do you think a Ford Excursion is a girls car? That's my wifes daily driver. 4x4 v-10. She won't trade it for anything!

I have a '91 5.0 Coupe. It's tiny next to her truck!

Here's my "girlie" ride. 240 ponies for a fuel injected 4 banger isn't too bad. That translates to 480 horses for Mike's V-8. :) Steve

My wife drives a Jeep Wrangler through the week and a 2014 ZL1 Camaro on the weekend. I guess they are kinda girlie. To me a girlie car is a VW Beetle convertible or a Miata.

Good friend of mine who did 2 combat tours in Vietnam with the "Big Red 1" Army First Infantry Division drives a first-gen Miata he bought new in '86. He has several vehicles including a Ducati and a Dodge pickup, but the Miata is his favorite 4-wheeler.

The kind of guy whose masculinity isn't defined by what he drives.

Is that working girls as in "working girls ;) " ??

Around here, it's mostly fake-tanned, bleached-blonde balloon-bloobed real-estate agents in those. <_<

Haha, good one!

Same here about the fake tans and bleached blonde is a must. Maybe a sticker on the bumper about some Golf Club too.

Sheesh, relax Scott. Just a typo. You know what I meant, I was correct in who I said he was.

It's okay. Just thought I'd pass on more info to those who didn't know. It was not meant to be a personal slam on you.

So does that make it a girls car?

And she drives this....

More than I do.

Of course I drive this a lot.....

And it usually gets called the "grocery getter" or the "soccer mom mobile". It wheels well though (running 35's and locked front and rear). I also have a 87 Suzuki TinTop that I daily drive (its built up as well)

Moreso to get up and over things most vehicles can't while getting away from civilization, breakage just sometimes happens in doing so.

The Aztec is hands down the single ugliest American vehicle of the last century. It looks like it was designed by Salvador Dali on acid! :lol: I can't believe that design ever made it through all the corporate levels and into actual production. What were they thinking??? :blink:

But 50 years from now, they will be cherished buy a certain cadre of collectors as the Edsel and AMC pacer and Gremlin are today.
