Picture Of Your Vehicle

Sun Jul 31, 2011 10:59 pm

What kind of car/vehicle do you drive? If you have a picture, that would even be better.

Cheers,

That color seems about right. I was surprised at that myself, it was in pretty good shape, even the roof material was in good shape. Obviously garaged.

Gone but not forgotten-

1988 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser*


The only times I don't miss it are when I buy gas and when I do a tune-up. The back four spark plugs and the distributor were a bear to access on that car, resulting in many a skinned knuckle and numerous shouted expletives.

*Not a pic of my actual car, but same year, model, and color. The only pic I have of my car is blurry and over-exposed.

Hey Superfly,

Well, I'm in the process of trying to produce a baby with the lady, so I'd want something a little more practical to drive the toddler around in. I want an SUV while transporting a child (safer and easier to load more $H!T in). I also like the way tahoe's look and my family has had them every year for the last 15 years or so.

P.S. I will keep the Dodge as a toy long after I move to an SUV for daily driving.
