If you want to worship an orange pile of garbage with a reckless disregard for everything, get on down to Arbys & try our loaded curly fries.

my dad bought a camaro in 1973, and held on to it when we went overseas.  we have restored it (it was a cool father/son project). and it looks a lot like this, without the front spoiler and the ridiculous chrome on the sides.

A Model T Ford, circa 1924 or something.

I like to deal with things understandable to myself, and a Model T Ford, circa 1924, is a machine I can understand.

It wouldn't be so hot, trying to drive it on an expressway in or around Baltimore or Boston or Pittsburgh, but out here in the Sandhills, it would be great.  If something went wrong, even I could figure it out, and deal with it.

No, that one's a month old, ancient.

It's perfectly fine with me, unless the authorities overrrule me, that this be a new thread, unrelated to the older one.

If fuel prices weren't a problem, I would like an Audi R8, especially the V12 diesel concept model.  My budget is more like a '70's Monte Carlo or Chevy Nova with a monster diesel crammed between the wheels.

Believe it or not, but the guy who drives that car said he gets about 30mpg in it.  :-)

The Mazda 6 is my current mode of transportation.


I want one of these in the future:



Mazda CX-7.  It's actually based on the 6, so it's no surprise why I like it. :p

Honda Pilot is my current ride.

I think I'd love to have an old Mustang one day. I just have always liked those things.

I think it's a pretty cool looking car.  I haven't driven one though.  Looks fun.
