Please tell us!

Give us interior/exterior pics, specs, etc., and reasons why you consider this vehicle to be your favorite.

I'd appreciate if we don't go into a war critisizing other people for liking different things.  Smile

For me:

Chevrolet Astro/GMC Safari Van

Exterior


















Interior









Specs

Engine: Vortec 4.3 Liter V6
Horsepower: 200
Torque: 250 ft. lbs.
Fuel Capacity: 27 Gallons
Governed Top Speed (computer chip): 106 MPH
0-60MPH: 9.1 seconds according to MotorTrend Magazine
Brakes: Antilock brake system (ABS), 4-wheel
Towing Capacity: 5500 lbs


This is my favorite vehicle because it has proven to be so reliable, useful, and nice to drive in our family. It is meant for active familys (like mine) who need a tougher more versatile vehicle than a minivan. I know it may e weird for a person this age to like a van, but it's me. It's great for long drives that I take, and it's got plenty more power than I need. It drives smoothly and easily on the highway, and it's just a great vehicle.

Ok, thanks for reading this far, so what is your all time favorite vehicle?

I like either the Saturn with the trick door or the Subaru WRX. I also like the Mercedes with the Gull-wing doors.

1957 Thunderbird. With the supercharged 312cid Y-block and 3-speed manual plus overdrive. This was the last year for the two-seat 'bird, and a powerhouse for its day. And don't forget the novelty, a supercharged factory car in 1957! There still aren't many models available today. (Grand Prix, Bonneville, Century? all GM I'm afraid and of course, the now defunct T-bird Super Coupe of 89-95. Throw in the Mercedes Kompressor models, and that's about it.) I'd love to have one, but they're quite rare and expensive.

Its a very very difficult question for someone as passionate for cars as me......different cars have different places in my heart.....but if you ask me what is the most beautiful car in the world then i would say.....just like Aerorobnz said......
the Ferrari 360 Modena....believe me no picture does justice to this car. When you stand infront of this mesmerising car and look at its rocket like, yet subtle lines, then you will realise how beautiful it is.
If someone can teach me how to paste pictures in here i can show you some really nice pictures of the car.
