A 1997 Ford Ranger, the small 4 cylinder,5 speed, no cruise.. Two busted out tail lights, a ton of dents including on the tailgate where a ghettofab homey decided it needed some new dents, A/C and windshield whipers quit working about 50k miles ago, the paint is peeling off of the hood and roof...

But does it leak oil?

1999 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4 that I paid way too much for because my credit is so whacked from trying to make a living in a failing economy as a tradesman. It replaced a 1994 Ford 150 with 250k miles and a transmission so shot it would no longer climb the mountains I live in without burning far more fuel than I could afford, and couldn't replace. Oh and our 'back up vehicle' is a 1985 Chevy S 10 four banger that runs when it wants too ... our vehicle insurance just went up, I guess they need their pound of flesh before we die ...

The wife drives a Camry. I am inbetween cars right now due to a cracked engine block on my grand prix. After the holidays it looks like there is a Fusion in my future.

On the weekends I am helping my father restore a '72 Chevelle Malibu which will one day be mine.

We just got a 1999 Prerunner and love it. In need of a tuneup, and full of quirks and aftermarket bells & whistles, but loving it so far.

(Everything but the ridiculous faux bullet-holes decals on the back. Gotta steam those off soon. It doesn't look "tough"; I don't have enemies; and if I do, they better hope their caliber is higher and grouping is tighter than that!)

The regular ride is a '99 Saturn wagon--plenty of cargo room and doesn't hurt the wallet for gas.

I recently bought a 1996 4x4 Chevy Suburban with only 68,000 miles on it. I stole it for a song. They don't make 'em like this anymore... her name is "Dee Dee" and she's outfitted with chrome bumpers and a killer Alpine. She's a guzzler, but also quite large and quite safe for myself and my family. (I have a four month old baby daughter.) It is not a daily driver, but more for trips and such. This baby can swaller some gear, let me tell ya!! My wife drives a Subaru Outback that is great on gas and handles snow like a champ.

My daily ride is a 2000 Chevy Prism which is a Toyota Corolla in disguise. I've had it for about 5 years, got it for a bargain cause it had been wrecked & repaired. It's got about 149K on it and still gets 30-32 mpg, AC quit 2 yrs ago, now the heater only works on high, the check engine lights been on for a year. In the winter I have four studded snow tires that will take me anywhere a 4x4 will go, unless the snow is too deep (which we haven't had to worry about for a few years now (global warming etc...)). We still get icy roads & she pulls on through. I have a 1999 Ford F150 with a V6 for the farm and when I need to haul stuff. The wife drives a 2000 Toyota RAV4.
I guess if we didnt spend so much on pipes & baccy we could all buy new cars eah?

Ha! A fellow Jag-ster. I have a 1998 XJR, a 390 hp gentlemenís' lounge that smells suspiciously like latakia--by far the best car I have owned, but it is dangerous in any sort of weather. It has never leaked a spot of oil, and even holds coolant...when it feels like it. I think it, like most predators, it feels the need to mark it's territory from time to time.

A 1998 Honda Civic for me. 5 speed, heat hardly works, no winter tires, no power locks or windows. It's a great vehicle!

Does a really old Yellow Diamond Back Bicycle with squeaky pedals, and a creaky frame count?

My parents owned one XJ6, as I recall, in the mid eighties.
Total POS
The traded it in on a Peugeot.

Traded the Peugeot on a Candyapple red thunder chicken which turned out to be a fairly reliable car.

We did a Cash for Clunkers with my '91 Ford F250 4x4 on a 2009 Rav4 v6 4x4. Got rid of the 2001 Impala to a niece in Indiana. Still have a 2005 Impala and bought a used 2000 Chevy Z71 4x4 shortbed with 170,000 miles to tow the trailer with and do other duties. Have an '85 Honda 700 Sabre in the shed I need to get running and sell.

I drive this one a lot. Very Happy

My family and I are very much into the "car culture". Part of this is because as car dealers we've had the chance to make some very good deals for some great cars. We have a 15 car garage in the backyard which is filled with a 76 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow right hand drive w/ 50K original miles, a 2005 anniversary edition T-Bird roadster w/ 40K, my mom's 79 caddy hearse show car with 22' rims, 15" subs, neon, flames, tinted windows and an Ed hardy mural on the loading door, her mildly customized 04 PT Cruiser as well as a bunch of cars in various states of resoration including a 59 sunliner retractable, a 69 Dan Gurney Cougar with a factory big block, scoop and hood pins, a 62 T-Bird Monaco (VERY RARE car. One of 2,000) , an 80 Fiat Spyder, a 69 Mercury Monterey convertible and more that I can't recall right now.

My everyday car is anything on the lot that I like which is driven on a dealer plate. Today that means a 99 Ford Expidition with aftermarket mags, grille, custom paintwork and a kickin' sound system. When it snows I drive an 05 Dodge Ram PU plow truck.

I've decided recently to build a ratrod to bring to shows next Summer. I'm on e-bay everyday now looking for the right one to do up:D

A Bugatti Veyron. But the ash tray is gettin' full, so I'm starting to think about trading it in for one in a brighter color and with the Spanish leather instead of the Corsican.
