This grew out of a conversation my wife and I had. Set up as a quiz/meme in case other people want to gank it.


1. What car do you currently drive?

A '97 Saturn SL2 Sedan.

2. Why?

Economical and durable. It also has a decent crash rating for its class. The Saturn's been a pretty good car for the money, actually, having had only a few troubles in over 100K miles.

3. What's your vehicle of choice, if money were no option?

The Plymouth Prowler, metallic purple, 2000 edition.

4. Why?

C'mon, look at it! :) I love the retro hot rod form combined with modern styling. It gives it a great flair.

5. What contemporary car would you absolutely NOT want to own?

Either the Honda Element or the Hummer. I think they're about equally ugly since I'm really not into the boxy shape. In the end, the Hummer wins out for my least desirable due to it's poor gas mileage.

Carz...

1. What car do you currently drive?

Infiniti G20t

2. Why?

High Ranking in Consumer reports for reliablity... I've never had a problem. Manual transmission and good gas milage. Cheap insurance.

3. What's your vehicle of choice, if money were no option?

Toss up... I like the Lancer Evo 8 MR... and it's not even *that* expensive at 33k, tied for first choice would also be a BMW M5 CSL... track-ready performance baby.

4. Why?

Fast... 4 doors, great track performance. Fun to drive factor!!

5. What contemporary car would you absolutely NOT want to own?

Would have to agree with Adam on this one... Scion xB, Element, Hummer, and the all time winner! Pontiac ASS-tek... that thing is a roach on wheels.

[b]1. What car do you currently drive?[/b]

2004 Subaru Forester 2.5XT

[b]2. Why?[/b]

Car and Driver's Top MiniSUV. 0 - 60 in 5.25 seconds. 1/4 Mile in 13.8 seconds. Same engine as the Subaru WRX STi with a smaller turbo. Good gas mileage for the speed. Comfy for 4 people and 2 dogs. 5 star crash ratings. All in a package that cops easily ignore because it looks like a tall station wagon.

[b]3. What's your vehicle of choice, if money were no option?[/b]

1995 - 1999 Toyota Landcruiser (FJZ100).

[b]4. Why?[/b]

For some reason, I have a hard time coming up with a dream vehicle. The TLC was one of the best made most capable 4x4's ever released in this country with front and rear lockers, 99% resale value, and a ride as quiet as a Lexus at the time. I didn't like the fact that they were all Automatics though. Maybe a 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 with the Turbo Cummings Deisel should have ben my choice... lots of balls, descent economy, nice interior. My dad's Audi RS6 would be nice, but it is too fast for me. I'd end up with a ticket for doing 155 in a 65 for sure.


5. What contemporary car would you absolutely NOT want to own?

VW New Beetle- No room, too much money.
Pontiac Aztec- Nifty idea, but yuck.
Anything lower to the ground than my Forester that has less room, 2wd, and is lower.

If money were no option, I'd probably be stuck hitchhiking...

1. What car do you currently drive?

A 1988 Audi 80 Quattro with a very non-stock engine.

2. Why?

It's fast, fun, german, comfy, and a unique.

3. What's your vehicle of choice, if money were no option?

1994 Audi RS2

4. Why?

It's basically my car, but in station wagon form, 6spd tranny, and tuned by Porsche to be simply amazing. Check out the link for specs and pics. Too bad they're only available in Europe.

5. What contemporary car would you absolutely NOT want to own?

Chevy El Camino. I really can't stand those things. Butt ugly IMO. Don't care how powerful or practical they are.
