I'll have to say a Porshe. Probably would sell it after a week (or the funeral!), other than that I'm perfectly satisfied with all I've got.

if i'd have coughed up $3800 in the early 60's, i could still be driving the thing. :)
<lotsa parts like door panels, even the bumpers were identical.

I understand Toyota is coming out with a hybrid Highlander. That's what I want. The salesman said it seats 6 Americans, or 7 Japanese. I would prefer it over a mini-van for taking kids places.

toolman    Posted 10-07-2004 at 10:37:25       [Reply]  [No Email]
you know those japanese trucks and even cars are made pretty good , i got a fellow down the road that got a truck and he hauled a horse trailer load of furnture out from the east coast, now hes been using it here for farming and a everyday driver it sure is holding up good,not a hybrid, but still good on gas, course it ain,t a chebby and when ya want a real truck and needs to get real work done we all know ya needs a chebby, i got three of them sittin in my yard and they all earn their keep,course ya gotta feed them lol.

hahaha    Posted 10-07-2004 at 09:09:19       [Reply]  [No Email]
wonder how many fat old rednecks it will hold?
dont plan on towing anything with it. dont own it long enough to buy replacement batteries for it either. whew.

With gas prices the way they are and all the driving I do, I would almost have to go for one of those little hybrid jobbies. Only problem is they can't haul anything - - No trailer behind them. I guess I would have to vote for one big bad Silverado with all the bells and whistles.

Without a doubt...a new Dodge 3500 one ton crew cab dually 4x4 with Cummins diesel and manual transmission.Jet black with chrome.SUH-WEEET!!!!

EngineerJoyce    Posted 10-07-2004 at 07:44:48       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yep! I want one, too!

Hubby wouldn't have it. Too big, cost too much in gas and insurance. harumph! Gimme Gimme!

And a nice aluminum 32 ft. gooseneck cattle trailer to match. Not that I have enough cattle to justify it, I just like the look of a truck and tailer! ...maybe i'm in the wrong business...

Well I think this would be what Jesse would call dis-in-franchised. Their are some of us that only have antique and muscle cars.

Chas in Me    Posted 10-07-2004 at 06:26:29       [Reply]  [No Email]
I like my x-cab GMC with the 8 foot bed a lot. I would replace it, since it's pushing 190,000 miles.
I know there are lots of miles left, so replacement isn't on the agenda yet.

Paula    Posted 10-07-2004 at 06:08:39       [Reply]  [Send Email]
I'd get a Suburban or a Yukon.

Cliff and I agree on this one: Cadillac, the biggest and highest-priced you can get... pearl white.

But we're happy with our Mercury Grand Marquis.

One thing for sure, it would have to be a diesel, thinkin maybe an F350, or maybe one of those new IHC goat heads or chibbys, please......this puppy would have to earn it's keep...not be tied up with tranny of gearend problems,not to mention "other" stuff... as for a personal carrier, Lincoln would be the choice....good gas mmileiage on the long haul, and comfort all the way....have a gooder, R.E.L.

amen brother    Posted 10-07-2004 at 09:02:16       [Reply]  [No Email]

"this puppy would have to earn it's keep"

we would get the same truck we got now.
crewcab 1 ton diesel 4x4 ford with a manual tranny. we work a truck both const. and farm. we tow, we haul, and we get the groceries with the 'family truck'. no 1/2 ton suburban would ever keep up, nor have the capacity. we tried that once.
