    I go through cars like underwear. Recently traded my 2006 Dodge Charger R/T on a loaded 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 4-door so I'd have 4WD and a truck bed. Regret the sale of the Charger now, better gas milage and more comfortable ride relative to the amount of driving that I do.

    Right now I'm driving a 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 gasser, had the diesel version before this one and I miss it terribly. My family has always owned Dodge trucks and I'll keep buying them as long as I'm around.

    Still rockin' my 1994 F-150 that I bought 16 years ago Sunday. It's in the background of this picture. Paid off for 12 years, 281,000 miles with only one major repair. It's a gift horse.

    This is Tabitha, my 2005 Ford Focus ZX3. Why did I buy it? I'm a student and need a small fuel efficient car and Tabitha does the trick. MPG could be better, but I have high standards when it comes to MPG

    I don't have one yet, but I'm seriously considering making the Chevrolet Spark my next vehicle.

    My daily driver is a 1977 Chevy 1/2 ton. It's fairly plain Jane, straight six, 2WD, 4 speed. It's got 82,500 original miles. Grandparents bought it new and Grandma always had it. Told her a few times that when she was ready to sell it I'd be interested. She called me a little over 10 years ago and asked if I was still interested.
    Hoping to do some work to it next year. It's hard to believe but after just 36 years the gaskets are starting to leak and of course the body needs to have some cancer removed. Plan on keeping it basic, might splurge and put in power windows and locks. Somewhere down the line might have another family member interested in it and want to keep it in the family.

    FIREMECH1, that's a nice ride. You must show restraint when driving because 550 gallons of VP wouldn't last me that long. You should come out to Cruise Nite next year, they had 580 entries this year. Some newer stuff but lots of nice older ones. The Classic Car Collection is also worth checking out.
