Fran......no matter how you slice the pie, that is one gorgeous car. I'd rather own that than a G70 and and Audya combined. Thank goodness for the "car shows" that keep these vehicles alive!

My pride and joy was an Ariel 500 cc single cylinder customized bike. Mine was gold metal-flake with leather seats.


Made in the UK like so many good things guitar

Small SUV fan myself. At some point I'll be looking around to replacle 'Ol' Reliable', my 1997 Jimmy. You know what's entered my considerations now? Tailgate floor height.

Probably my 06 Scion XB is the ultimate gig rig. Plenty of head room, seats fold flat to hold all gear, 34 mpg, totally reliable.
However, I now use a Ford Exhibition, or I did before lightening hit it in early December. I'm supposed to get it back possibly tomorrow. Meantime I haul my gear in the back of my "fishing truck", a 97 Silverado with tonneau cover. I don't drive it much because it is in nearly showroom condition, with lots of custom stuff. I have a sound system in it that will rattle windows for blocks around, with Johnny Cash music of course.
Trivia--they didn't make the XB in 07, then changed it a lot for 08. Bigger Camry motor, less room, less gas mileage, less box-like. Too bad!

... can't ride along the beach on a beautiful summer day with the top down in an SUV ... my CTS4 provides room for 5 with a very big trunk, and my GMC pick up has all the room I need for gigs ...

The best all around vehicle to me...a mini van (extended )It can haul all your gear, tools, people etc..

The worst for me..an SUV..gas hog, misleading space (actually small)..expensive repairs..Loading up, terrible ..too high..The minivan is economic, lower to load, twice the room, and it will go on any snow covered road too..

hahaha I've had many mini vans.....aside from looking like a freakin' soccer mom riding around and too low in snow,.......it's alot of wasted space to use once in a while to haul stuff..they make a few AWD vans if needed.....but for me 4x4/AWD/SUV all the way....that is all. cool2
