      I plan to keep the same car that I drive until it gives me trouble. Not to be frugal, just to keep a low profile. I will be upgrading some of the members of my familys' cars to what ever they want.

        I'd look into getting a nice mercedes benz unimog just to squash hummers with

        then probably look for a nice mid 60s sideloader hearse

            I plan to keep the car I have for now.  It's only 4 years old, doesn't have alot of miles on it, and hasn't given me any trouble other than needing a new battery and new tires.  As long as it's running OK, I'll keep it.  I may upgrade to a nicer car once this one starts giving me trouble, but not something too flashy.

                             car                 

                I LOVE that little car!  Can you buy those in the US and what are they called?

                To answer the question, I'd continue driving my 1991 truck cuz I like it.  I saw where someone had a strategy that if they needed to go on a trip and didn't feel their car was reliable, they'd just rent a car for the trip and it ended up costing much less than buying their own, paying insurance, etc.  I think that's a great idea and may do that myself until the 1991 gives up the ghost.  Then I'd probably buy a Range Rover which isn't on the poll.  Or maybe a Dodge Nitro which also isn't listed on the poll.  Or maybe a Jeep.  I must be odd, cuz none of my top choices are on the poll.  Crazy

                  I'd have to say a 1977 black Corvette. Always loved them since I saw one in the Car's video, "Touch and Go" when I was a teenager. lol

                          I have no idea, but I know I wouldn't spend more than $30,000 for a car. My answer for now is "keep my Camry" and possibly buy a small SUV if I lived in the mountains or an area that gets snow.  However, it's possible that I might trade my car for a new Acura TSX.
