Is that spongeworthy...er...banworthy?


LOL! That's true. (but I don't think there's a rule against that here)


You shouldn't think of yourself that way Grace. You're a saint. How many people would order a Mercedes without a leather interior?


Uh yeah right. Actually I'm interested in Toyota's FJ Cruiser (not to be confused with the Chrysler PJ Cruiser yuk)

Wow, Grace, I didn't realize you had such great taste in vehicles. I suppose you are talking about the new one they are coming out with, and not the old one they used to make. Either way, it should be an excellent choice.

HEY! We have something in common. Wanna get married? :wink: Yes, the new one; they're unveiling it this month at a local dealership and I'm on the top of their list to call and have a look see - I love what I've seen (and read) online so far.

What's the gas mileage like on that mad beast?

If I were to get a <i>new</i> car, it'd be the Dodge Challenger concept. It's almost <i>too</i> retro, but still too cool to pass up.

I think we need a car thread. :P

If it weren't a Chrysler product....yes. Give me the new Mustang any day... :wink:

Saw one last night that had the exterior package I wanted, yellow with black racing stripes kinda like my old '73 had. The problem is I would have to trade in my wife's Miata to ensure garage space but she thinks my motorcycles would be the better choice .... women have no concept of true priorities in life. Bikes are economical and cool, while a Miata is a "chick car". A Mustang is cool and can still be a "chick car" too.

Heh, yeah the miata is a chick car but it can be made into something other and be a real blast to drive. All you need to do is slap a turbo on it, upgrade an already more than capable suspension and then look for a road full of curves.

And maybe it's your priorities that are messed up Wayne. Here's both my cars. Notice that they're in the garage while the wife's suv is parked outside :lol:

Miata's aren't necessarily a chick car. Our gay friends got one too. :twisted: Oh and our drunken Finnish friend bought one here and had it shipped to Finland back in the late 80's or early 90's (but I think his wife drives that car)...

No, her SUV and my truck are parked outside too. The convertible gets the garage partly because of the top and partly because it is smaller and allows room to walk around it, which gives enough room for the bikes to be parked side by side. The Miata has a decent amount of thrust to weight ratio ... I popped over 110 mph when I hit high gear it on the test drive, but that was with the top down. My head hits the stupid top when it is up and the blind spots are horrible. I do take it out once or twice a year to "blow the carbon out" for her but it is still not a car I would drive myself.

You should have seen us a couple of years ago, when we had the 2 door SUV in the mountains. I was driving down the alternate to a truck route, which was barely two lanes, taking in the view (always think I'll move back to the mountains on these trips) looking at properties when this 5 series BMW game up on my rear bumper. The car is only part of the ability to drive in the mountains so when we passed into the wooded area I poked the Ford in the butt and started away from the BMW. A few turns later it was starting to disappear from sight in the turn. In a sharp right hand turn I met a State Trooper going the other way. Of course, he was a might disturbed at the way I took the turn, but I did stay in my lane :wink: and apparently was going to do a 180 and come after me when the BMW came into view. I could see from the other side of the nest switch back and the trooper had the BMW pulled onto a wide spot on the shoulder. That area has a lot of "partial year" residents that have never driven enough in the mountains to be proficient so that BMW should probably have had a ticket. I would not have complained if I had gotten one, but it was sooo much more fun to have not gotten one.

I think we'll stick with our Mercedes. It's more capable than the Humvee. Note the beer can someone left on the bumper. Hours of rough trails, and the beer is still there!
