Okay, auto roll-call. What's everybody own/drive?

2000 Dodge " take no prisonors" Caravan

I was just wondering this too -- madaracs spoke of a somewhat expensive massively depreciating asset purchase by his wife and I always wonder how people do that without making several hundred thousand a year... but it is used so deals can be had!

My Liquid Yellow, 2004 Mini Cooper S is the most expensive car to date.
1996 Jeep Cherokee Sport (runs great!)

Man, this forum is messed up. I kept trying to post, and it would get in this endless "you don't have permission to read this forum" messages.

Let's TRY THIS AGAIN..

Yeah, that's why I posted the question back at

My thoughts exactly, Rhino. ;)

El Jeffe, while trying to troubleshoot a template problem, I was changing the permissions. You may have attempted to post in the 15 seconds where nobody had permissions to read or post or anything.

Anyhoo,

I drive a 2006 Diesel Jeep Liberty.

That's an awfully stylish site for cars. I will never understand how you guys do sites like that.

What a journey.

And you were telling me about Chicago.
In Phoenix I have the car. In Chicago I have the famous elevated train.

My Miata is a ‘93 C package (leather seats, electric windows, viscous LSD, etc.) bought used in ’98. I traded in my ‘96 Honda Civic. I hated that car - big, wallowy and slow. It should have had Chevy Caprice badges on it.

Ha! You should see how big the civic is now. And the Accord could probably wear a Caprice badge these days.

Yes. Perfectly logical. Especially in this thread about CARS.
You must understand, I have never 'done' public transportation. I MUST DRIVE. I have a hard time being a passenger in or on anything.

So, my lack of public transportation knowledge is perfectly understandable, and does not detract from my now 16 year old knowledge of Chicago. :)

What a journey.
