'87 GMC Sierra, because nothing has killed it, including 5 years of my sister driving it. The Odometer's on it's third rotation and with a 454 and a 3L80 Nothing's gonna stop me(cue Rob Zombie)

And a '09 honda Rebel 250 because 8.38 mpg isn't a practical commute vehicle.

Just bought my 04 Ford F-150 XLT 4x4 last week, still loving it btw. I like ford because they didnt take bailout money. Mainly bought it for the interior room. I get almost daily use out of a truck and id rather drive a truck because they hold thier value better than cars.

I drive a 2011 ram 4x4 quad cab, its nicer than my husbands 2009 caddy, plus did real good in the snow last winter, and living out in the boondocks, in an old farm house i am fixing up, seems like i am always hauling something. Plus for christmas last year i got a bird launcher that slides in the reciever hitch, and plugs into the trailer light port, so you can load it up, and just push a button. I also have a 2008 mustang gt for the nice summer days, AND we also have a 1978 ford 4x4 truck that came with the property when we bought it, dont know if its ever had tags on it, but it runs good, we just use it to haul trash.

08 Chevy Impala. Black,Heated Leather, Sunroof, Loaded. Bought it new out of the showroom cause I get my F-I-L's employee discount and they were running an 0 interest loan promotion. Yeah, it's a fleet vehicle, but its a little sporty, a little classy, and I average almost 30 mpg. Wife likes the four doors. Back seats fold down and my Golden loves to ride back there. I traded in a Chevy Colorado. Too damn small and the gas milage sucked.

Got rid of the vette (1969 T-Top, customized with front spoiler rear spoiler glassed in rear, flares all the way around, side pipes hooked up to a 9000rpm shifting built 350) It was fun, but every week I was wrenching on something.
Got rid of the Suburban. 454 with the heavy duty towing package. 9 miles per gallon empty or towing a house, it didn't seem to matter. I found out real quick why it had a 42 gallon tank.
Down to a Focus and an old Crown Vicky. The Focus Handles great, decent mileage, comfortable. Easy to park, great in town. I was really unimpressed with it until I got rid of the cheap Parelli tires it came with. I put 4 Sumitomo tires on it and I thought I had a different car. What a difference, it was really amazing I did not think tires could make that much of a difference.
The Crown Vicky is the most comfortable highway car I've ever had. I'd match its ride against anything. Good mileage on the highway but sucks in town.

I think one of my co workers has about that same car, they are really classy and sporty,(sexy) but i have a thing for black cars. My truck is black, hubbys cts is black, and my mustang is black with silver stripes, 330 horse V8, 5spd, and bald rear tires LOL.......

My wife has an 03 Jeff Gordon edition Monte Carlo with 40k on it. Great car except for the all of the Jeff Gordon crap on it.

'87 Ford Ranger XLT 4X4. Because it's what I have. Wife drives a '94 Caddy. I inherited the Ranger, and gave $800 for the Caddy. The little truck is great, walked it through axle deep mud with street tires on it.

Just today, I traded in my 03 BMW 330 convertible on a 2011 VW Jetta Sportwagen TDI. I kind of feel like I had to put my dog down. That was a great car, but it had too many miles on it. It was staying in the garage too much, and I was paying Hertz too much on my weekly trips to Chicago.

The VW isn't a covertible, but it has the biggest dang sunroof I've ever seen. And that TDI engine is pretty impressive. I was averaging 40mpg on my trip back here from Iowa City this afternoon. You can't beat that with a stick.
