Black one is a 1992 Jeep YJ minor modifications(recently sold), Green one is a 1998 Jeep TJ with 4.5" suspension lift, Adjustable suspension links, Slip yoke eliminator kit with double cardan drive shaft, 33"tires and it's my daily driver. Orange one is a 2012 Jeep JK unlimited, all stock but soon to get a supercharger, we use it to pull our 19' trailer and it's my wife's daily driver.




All very sweet!

Sweet ... How much is original?  My cousins had a 1940 Packard as transportation from their wedding to the reception.

I drive a pretty boring car compared to what i see some of you drive. Its a toyota corolla, fully loaded yes, so i enjoy it, but if only i could afford it, i would have the corolla for day to day driving, and an older convertible muscle car of some sort, preferably a early mustang, or a 71 'cuda for when i go someplace i want to be noticed.
Bald by chioce, never going back

Gave up all the expensive toys in America. Now, looking at buying another car.

What do you guys think?

CitroŽn C1/Toyota Ayego (open top), or Kia Picanto?

I had an amazing Infiniti QX4, 1998 model.  My father bought it right before he died, and I got to drive it to school once or twice.  It had maybe 10,000 miles on it when I finally inherited it as an adult.

My husband was driving to the drug store, stopped at a new stoplight, and got rear-ended by a guy who was texting and didn't realize the new light had been installed.  He was going 50 mph.  My husband thankfully was okay after a concussion, but the car was scrap.

Now I have a Volvo V90.  It's a nice ride, and it's nice having the third row since we're planning on kids, but the 4WD is a disaster.  Our driveway is on a slight slope so that to exit you have to go uphill (VERY minor!) and my husband tried to get up with normal acceleration, then failed.  Then he gunned it to get up once, slid back, and rear ended our damn house.  Generally Volvo is a good manufacturer but this one I think is a bit iffy.  We lost a brake light and have a little dark blue blemish on our siding (there was a ton of snow and hedges between them, thankfully).  We've taken it to four mechanics to fix and no dice.
