Wanted to bring this question back into the fray as Emma and I have just taken ownership of a nice brand spanky new RX8.

We also have a Laguna.

I expect all you Vancouverites have huge 4X4's to help with the school run

I'm a city person who doesn't use or need a car.. but I did have a VW Jetta TDI (diesel) a few years ago. I love vw's.

I have been thinking of an Audi S8.. nice and roomy. But I'm dreaming, I would only use it for cigarette runs to Poland.

I have an '82 Dodge pick-up. It doesn't get driven much. I also have an '80 GMC 3/4 ton Crew Cab. It doesn't get driven at all because the motor is gone.

Mrs. Rev has a 1990 ('91, '92? something like that) Oldsmobile.

We have a 2000 Kia Rio RXV and a 2005 Saturn Ion. Surprisingly, the Saturn gets WAY better mileage than our Kia. And cost us about $2000 less. Bizarre!! But hey, it's a good family car for that family we're starting in January....

My friend has one of those, excellent car. Why a 250 pound 6-1 guy chose a pink one is a bit of a mystery, but apart from the colour it's okay.

I like the Hyundai Tiburon. All they need to do is make it into a convertible and then I'll wait ten years and buy a used one.

My husbands first car was a 1996 hyundai accent hatchback. He's 6'2" and about 240lbs. His car was that metallic teal green. Not as bad as pink, but still pretty darn girly. But it was a great little car. We sold it to his brother when we bought the Kia, and his brother loves it too!

We actually looked at getting another one (instead of the Saturn) but they were actually more money than the Saturn (and more than the Nissan, which surprised us), so we ended up with the Saturn.

OH, and hubby also has a 1986 Saab 900 sitting in the driveway. Needs a new transmission, so it might sit there for a while, but that's a FUN car!

A 2002 Toyota Corrola, and a 92 Miata. Both have a pile of miles on them but still running perfectly. Knock wood and all that.

Before my Hyndai (which is a lovely silver colour) I drove a Mazda mx6. With the turbo feature. Great for passing cars. but caused some to think I wanted to race. and it was a bitch to keep on the road at high speed.

We got a truck and suv...the dodge durango was a good buy though....its great on long trips...much space and comfortable..got the power to pass too.......but not great on gas....

....I'm looking for a new vehicle in the next year or so.....and I really like loncoln....and have my eye on the new town car....looks pretty darn sharp......probably will only use it on Sunday's and in the summer...... park it otherwise.....

I have a friend who did that with his (mid 90s) Monte Carlo SS.... it's black and he kept the thing soo darn sharp, there's only like 20 000 clicks on it too.....that's where I got the idea for a new lincoln town car....

I've got a '79 Chevy factory Camper Special 3/4 T... I wouldn't quite call it Cherry, but it's in very nice shape. 26 years old, and I am the second owner! Retired guy at the Coast bought it new and only drove it in summer, to haul his Camper around. After a few years of working (after I got it) I retired, too - so, same thing.

Had the motor done 6 or 7 years ago; special cam, H/D timing chain, H/D oil pump*, big exhaust, a few other things.

My wife got a new Olds Alero in 2002. 2-Dr, with everything but leather - V-6, 4 wheel discs w/ABS, sport suspension, power everything, 180 watt 8 speaker CD, sun-roof, even a thingy that adjusts the stereo volume up and down, according to your speed (to compensate for raod noise,etc.)
I'm pretty sure there's a button somewhere that will scratch your privates for you, but I haven't found it yet.
Needless to say, she likes it - a lot.



*It's funny, as soon as I touch the accelerator off idle, the oil pressure gauge is PEGGED! LOL!

I don't believe in cars. They harm the environment and are a scourge to society. Instead, I constructed a sled made out of celery that can be pulled by old people. With any luck I'll get a patent, become a millionaire and save the environment all at the same time.

Tell your wife to support an American car company instead of foreign nonsense.

I'd like to purchase a 1967 Chevrolet El Camino if anyone's got one in good shape. There are lots of the thinner 1970's models out there, but the 1967 version is real nice.

I tried to tell her, but that's the truck she liked. There are many nice non-diesel smaller trucks out there. She could have had the Ford F-150, Dodge Dakota, Chevrolet Silverado ...etc). However, she hasn't had too many problems with the truck. Drives comfortably.

Gotta forest green '97 Toyota Tercel. A real gas sipper. A sweet ride, and the ladies love it. I wish it was a standard, though. Its 3-speed automatic. On the 401 doing 125 it screams like its going to blow up.

My wife drives the 'nice' car (of course) - a '99 Olds Intrigue. It's all right, but has a lot of the problems typical of the big 3.

No such thing anymore, they're all built all over the place. I have a 1993 Toyota Camry I bought in 1995, best car I've ever had, 170,000 km on it and no expenses but routine maintenance. Before that I had assorted Chrysler and GM products and they all started to nickle and dime me to death after about 100,000 km. Failed fuel pumps, door handles falling off, door and ignition locks wearing out, stupid stuff like that. A few years ago I bought a 2002 Toyota Echo as a second car, and it's a fabulous little machine, 100% reliable like the Camry, great fuel economy, and surprisingly big inside. After my experience with cars from Toyota, Honda, Chrysler, GM, and Ford over the last 40 years, Toyota's got them beat all to pieces. And most of them are built in this country. My priority is reliability, get me there and get me home, and the Toyotas are the only vehicles I've owned that have never stranded me.

I won't buy anything else. I watch the markets and I check the consumer reports, but I've yet to see anything that would suggest I should look seriously at anything but a Toyota.

Ocean ... I'm drooling here! Post us a pic, will ya?

I used to have a '62 Austin Healy Sprite ... looked a lot like an MG with big round front fenders. Felt like Mata Hari driving around in it.

I also had a '69 Chevelle convertible. Nice car.

And I had a Harley.

But, *sigh*, these days I drive a '92 Ford F150. A gift from my Daddy-O when we moved out here. Thing is a damn tank. We're going to get rid of it and hope to get a little Mazda that will actually FIT on the streets of Victoria!

I drive my father crazy that what I drive.

I don't have a liscience. Blind in one eye so no liscence for me.

If I could drive I'd probably drive something praticial and with good gas milage.

Edit: did my best to correct my atrious spelling.
