    1990 S-10 Extend cab, with the 4.3L V6 in it and the 5-speed manual, with about 115,000 miles on it (not bad for a 20 year old rig :D ). I just picked it up about a year ago after my 83' caprice classic caught fire :(.

    Did a full tune-up on it couple weeks back, and it man does it have some power. First manual I have owned,and I'm having to try not to break the tires loosing going from 1st to 2nd :p.

    Only thing its missing is 4 wheel drive. But other than that I love my little pickup :D.

    A silver, 2005 Saab 9-3 Sport Saloon 1.9 TiD 150. Performance and economy, though I'm wildly jealous of the majority of those living in the US who can purchase V8 mustangs for pretty much what my Saab cost!!

    I'd have an absolute field day if I lived in the US/Canada! :D

    Does a VW Passat pass as a car - or would it fall into the 'barge' class my mates put it into :p

    Well as far as what I'm driving, as per the question, I drive a 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix GT, 2 door sports coupe. It's color is is stock cobalt electric blue. Here are some pic's of my car.

    Here is the front...

    I love my car, seeing that my now ex-wife wouldn't let me spend to much money on it during our marriage. One of the first things I did shortly after the ink dried on the divorce papers, was I went out and dumped some coin into the car by upgrading the stereo system, from the stock GM radio to a nice 1000 watt Kenwood pull out deck with a amp, cap and huge trunk mount sub with three 10's mounted into the box.

    I'm the car's only owner, bought it off the show room floor at Roseville Pontiac in 1999. It has about 187, 500 miles on it. Original V-6 Buick Series II engine, original automatic transmission, almost original everything!

    Am I gonna be the first to admit that I drive a minivan? Maybe I'll still get that R35 some day, or a nice M6 or something... but for now it's daddy time!

    I drive an old piece of junk. But what a piece of junk. Wait... that sounded even worse.

    Copy-paste into browser if you get a 'Forbidden!' message (403).

    It's a Volvo 740GL mark 88b (1987), the very best!

    My ride's older than me...


    Broken exhaust system, close-to-no gaskets, one broken fuel pump (2/3 operational), misaligned ignition setting, broken steering servo-liquid tank (e.g. no servo-liquid for the steering), no ceiling (the cat tor it down :D ), no housing for the left rear reverse-light, every wheel is crooked by at least 2 degrees, toe in/out misaligned on 2 wheels, no gas tank inner lid (got stolen - God knows why), clutch is completely ruined, gearbox is misaligned (how?!), fuel metre is broken, velocity metre is broken (I simply estimate the speed based on rpm and current gear), rear right door inner casing is gone, central locking system is ka-putte, antenna is filed down (I actually did that willingly), cooling tank is leaking, windshield 'spraying device' is internally clogged up, rear and front right doors are un-openable from the outside, dashboard is cracked, lighter plug is broken internally, seat-belt recognition has broken, seating heating is malfunctioning, rear-windshield internal heating is broken, accelerometer pedal has to go halfway to the Himalayas before it responds to any kind of pressure, windshield wipers ONLY work on "super slow" and "Turbo" mode, metre back-lighting is dead (can't see it in the dark!), the handbrake doesn't respond, driver's ceiling mirror is missing, horn only squeaks, all the chromed lining has dissipated with time, fuel-to-air ratio is over the roof, the paintwork is literary letting go of the body!, and the exhaust pipe is hanging by a thread. Really, it's held up by 20 gauge copper wire.

    Passes vehicle inspection every time. No... really, it does... probably because the brakes work... still.

    Edit:
    Oh yeah, and the gear knob is missing.

    It's funny to see this old thread still ticking. It was in my subscribed threads, I had to go through 4 years of posts to find out what I had posted here...

    I kept that Fusion for 3 years (the longest I have ever kept any vehicle), but just couldn't keep driving a little car anymore. About a year ago I traded it in for a 2006 Ford F-150 STX Supercab 4x4 and couldn't be happier. :)

    This is my 3rd pickup truck. Every time I buy a different style vehicle, I seem to end up going back to a pickup truck the next time around

    People often comment that with high gas prices, the lower fuel economy of the truck must be killing me, but honestly it doesn't bother me at all. I knew about the MPG before I bought it, so it's not like I was sursprised by it. Besides, even though it is a larger and heavier truck, it still gets better mileage than my smaller Dodge Dakota did.

    TREE HUGGERS, YOU CAN CRY AGAIN! (but at least you can be happy that I drove a fuel efficient car for 3 years before going back to a "gas guzzler" ;)
