    Default What are you driving?

    Post your vehicle! I had a rant around and didn't see any kind of thread like this, but if there is, then you can all take turns beating me with a garden hose.

    The payment is high, but the driving pleasure reflects on it.

    I know there is a thread about this somewheres in the Off Duty Forums. Can I be the first to smack yah????


    Anyways our current car is an 06 Focus ZX4 SE. Small as all hell now that we have the young fella around so hopefullyyy soon we'll be getting something like a Tucson or Santa Fe. I'll try and get a picture of the current heap, I mean car.

    Default Hey Gonz.....

    How do you like your Edge. Bought my wife an SEL+ also (After she rolled her Tahoe). She's amazed how many people stop her at the store to look at it.

    Day I bought it.... after I got it home, I took off the mud flaps, put a tool box in the bed, put a red line license plate on the front, and put 31x10.50 Mastercraft Courser A/T tires all around. She also has a mobile radio in her too, but that came last summer.
    Put THAT in your pump and flow it.

    We love it. It has everything but the DVD and nav system. Good fit and finish, plenty of power, good handling, and the heated leather seats are very nice on a cold New England morning!

    The only thing I wish it had was the ability to shift the gears like a manual transmission, like Volvo's autostick or Porsche's TipTronic. I wish the Mustang had this, too...

    AZFF25.. sweet 'Vette! The Deputy Chief I share my office with has a 1967 Corvette convertible for a toy. Of course, I put the pic of my 'Stang as the wallpaper on the office computer, and have Mustang stuff on the walls on my side of the office!

    That is a GREAT looking car. Although there are 'Vette owners that put the red brake calipers on their non Z's to make it look like a Z.

    No self-respecting Corvette owner would want their car looking like some cheap rice burner.

    Well, since I totaled my Jeep Grand Cherokee Monday in an accident (not my fault), I'm currently in a white 2008 Dodge Ram 4 door rental for the next three weeks.

    I have two cars. I am cheap though,

    I still drive the 1990 Geo Prizm GSI I bought in 1991. It gets 35mpg still.

    Last summer I spent $3500 cash and bought a 2001 Dodge Intrepid.

    I haven't had a car payment in over 12 years. I spend $300 a year for liability only insurance.

    I have more than my annual salary in savings. I could buy a much nicer car, if I wanted to.

    But I am cheap
