What do you drive and why?

    When I was a JW, I had two cars: a 1958 MGA coupe, and later a 1965 Corvair Monza Convertible that was unsafer with me driving it than most people at any speed. God a hundred thousand miles out of that Corvair, the last 25,000 with it pumping oil up the dipstick and onto the engine. (I was a student. Whaddya want? a real car?) Now it's a Ford F-150 extended cab truck, 'cause I can get into and out of it easily with a broken back.

    I drive what my teenagers affectionately call "an old man car". A 2001 Chrysler Concorde. It would be a good car for field service because it has 4 doors. It has an exceptionally large trunk area. A real "babe magnet" car.

    I have a Jeep Cherokee Sport4x4 of course......cause this is Texas and you just have to have a truck of some kind.

    I also drive my boyfriend.......crazy.(hee hee)

    I drive a Honda Civic EX for it's reliability and simple good looks. It's a 2 door so I supposed I am rebelling too. Boy I don't miss service and especially the rural teritories. One time at Borg Camp during my pioneering days. I had a an old junker, I was out with some elderly sisters we went to a home and the ladies dog accidentally got out it was pouring rain and she was very upset so the sisters who had gone to the door started to follow it. I tried to help and we wound up at a dead end street (oops I had forgotten my reverse was out). The other sisters couldn't drive so they had to push me so that I could turn back around. We got the dog but they were soaked. Not a pretty sight but a hilarious memory.

    Fantastic englishmun,

    LOL .. watchout those things can cause a midlife crisis. (falling tree branches keep me from going topless :(

    (good thing it doesn't rain much around your way ;) .. actually cloudy skies are best for touring lidless. One of the best cars I owned was a 1980 Ford Cortina Ghia with a windback sun roof .. beautiful machine and very fast, especially through winding mountain roads with its 4.1 litre engine and power steering.

    Well, I really loved my '93 Toyota Camry. It's comfy and rides so smooth. But it is, alas! such a SERVICE CAR! It is now in semi-retirement waiting for my daughter to turn 16. Last April I finally gave in to my lifelong love of roadsters and took the plunge for a 2001 BMW Z3 3.0i. Let's just say it's black, it's fast, and it's mine!

    Dins--take one for a spin, I think you'll like it. Even the 2.5 should be more powerful than the Miata.

    Why do I drive it? It has 2 doors and 2 seats, need I say more?

    Uncle Bruce,

    The pic is a Pilgrim Bulldog, a kit car built by my kid bro. He's built several since, including a 4wd jobbie made, would you believe, out of exterior MDF.


    Nostalgia isn't what it used to be....

    "sigh" a '99 Toyota Sienna...minivan, at least it has leather! I have two kids and it's rated the safest. The prince was sad to sell the Land Cruiser but it had to be done.

    97 Saturn SL2 with every option available. Why that? It was a good price and I've known other people who've had Saturns and what they've said is true, those cars just don't break down. I don't know much about cars and I don't really like messing with them very much so it works out well.
    I'd love a DeLorean but don't have the money for it..... :(

    I don't need to fight
    To prove I'm right
    I don't need to be forgiven.

    I had a black chevy malibu with sun roof and leather seats, you know the works. After my accident I drive a 1994 dodge Dakota truck. I have a back injury and need to sit up high. 4wd truck is so practical in snow country.
