I have a 93 Chevy Cavalier 4 door. The best little car I can imagine. Its paid for, clean as a whistle and is reliable. I say, have a SWEET bike and a practical car for whatever your needs are. If I had the $$ ( which I dont) Id like a chevy full size truck.

My cage? A red '97 GMC Sonoma extended cab pickup, 4.3/automatic, ZQ8 sport suspension - those fat tires just love freeway ramps! Since it sits nice and low it's just the ticket for loading a bike with no hassles. Besides, you can tow 6000lbs of stuff (more bikes!) and it won't break a sweat!

A beater '89 S10 with the 2.5 engine. A totally bare bones truck, but it starts everytime and it will haul my bike when I need it too.

cages cages, hmm....
i'm only 21 (therefore driving for 5 scary years) and have owned 4 cars, in which 3 were pieces o' crap cars.
1989 Hyundai Excel. slower than grandma takin a crap without her ex-lax. but, it was free! til i crashed it.
1986 Chevette (sh*tvette). again, it was free, and needed a car.
1989 Ford Escort PONY. yes, that's right, i got the pony version. the $400 pony version! this car looked so sad. one headlight was the plastic bucket with a piece of plexiglass duct-taped on it, and the turn signal was a bulb hanging from wires. kept me from getting pulled over!!
and finally:
1988 Ford Taurus GL. oohhh yaahh. compared to what i've been driving, this is luxury. keyless entry, power ev'rything, and a 3.8L engine. i spank the crap outta this car. 133K miles on it. gonna run it til it drops.
Boyfriend has a 1988 Chevy Astro converted van with a 5 speed tranny. oddball. and a 1970 something Datsun Z280 with a V8 dropped in it and a corvette drive train. that thing will FLY, especially around cloverleaf ramps. not that i would know.
looking to get a 1963 corvette convertible. don't like the new ones much. older ones have more character!! ;o)
p.s. look out for the elderly drivers, taxi cabbers, and women in suv's with a cell phone up to their ear, a coffee in one hand, and putting on their mascara with the other!! they're dangerous!

Got rid of '84 Corvette in '89...BIG MISTAKE!

My wife and I currently own a '91 Nissan 4x4 and a '95 Jeep Wrangler.

Currently looking at Land Rover Discovery, Nissan Xterra, New Wrangler. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

Could get another Corvette if I would give up the RC 51... It ain't gonna happen!

Ride Hard!

Hee hee hee, I agree Pete! And the reason you cant kill the Ford Pulser is because you cant kill something that was dead to begin with!

92 Ford Escort LX Wagon - 128k, recently blew head gasket, there went down payment on a sportbike..... (Sadly, the finest of three different states would look dimly upon my piling four children onto a Sprint RS and doing 20k miles yearly with 'em, so I had to fix the car.)

Next car - Nissan Maxima SE
