    Best car I've ever owned is a 2004 Mercedes E320 Wagon Sport with A/C, Heated, active dynamic seats with the Massage Option. 27 to 29 on the road, versatile, quick enough, and comfortable.

    1999 Mercedes E Class with the V-8

    Still solid and tight as new after 155,000 miles. I have to look at the tach to see if it running.

    My '60' Vette. I could pop the clutch and the front end would lift off the ground. Sorry I ever let that one go. Bulge.

    94' Landcruiser. Brute of a 4WD with factory installed lockers. Lots and lots of nasty off road miles and it still drives good on real roads. Not my prettiest vehicle but one of those that I can't imagine parting with.

    All around, 1990 Ford Escort GT. It was a perfect car for me. Very few problems, got great milage, performed very well, ran the crap out of it after 10 years and sold it for a good price.

    1966 Chevelle Super Sport. Black with black. 2 door hardtop. 396 cu. inches. 375 H.P (very consevatively estimated). 4-speed, 4:10 posi-traction 12-bolt rear end. The front tires were OK, but for some reason the rear ones would only last about three weeks.

    2003 BMW Z4, great gas mileage, fantastic handling , good looks and very well built. I'm 64 and have owned way to many cars to remember them all, but this one is the best of the best.

    A 1983 Ford Club Wagon with a 300 CID inline 6 and a 4 speed manual transmission. It logged 331,000 miles and went everywhere and pulled a 3000 pound bass boat. It finally rusted away but the drive train was still solid.

    86 Mazda 323 could not beat it with a stick, by far the cheapest most dependable car I have ever owned and I have owned a bunch.

    1992 Taurus SHO. I've owned a Lotus Europa, a Jag sedan, a Mercedes and two BMW's But the SHO was the one I loved to drive and at that time it met my mission profile. Now, I am completely happy with an '05 Expedition because of its comfort and all the room for my kids and their kids or all my trap shooting gear. Plus, over its 70,000 miles it has averaged almost 19 mpg.

    That's a hard choice either a 1955 Olds or a 1991 s10 blazer, probably should have kept them both. Ross

    In days gone by, it was a '64 Corvette Coupe with a 327cid/375hp factory FI, 4 speed and a 4:11 rear end. Had the big brakes on it too! Top speed was only 140 mph, but what a car to drive!!!!! And stop!!!

    Currently, I have an '09 Chevy Suburban with the Z71 package, 4X4, and most of the bells and whistles. Just got 19.3 mpg going NE and 18.8 mpg coming home to the SW driving the speed limit on I10. Temp was over 100 in the Houston area and the AC was on high all the time. It's too bad that PBO (that's pronounced "Pee-Bow") has effectively neutered GM. They make great cars.

    Just goes to show you what can happen when we get lax in our attention to political details.

    Oh well, they're going to fix health care, right?

    95 toyota T 100, sold it at 272,000 and it is still going. Cost me less than $2000.00 in repairs for the 250,000 miles I drove it. 19-21 mpg and never failed me once.
