    Hey Ridge, what you gonna get?

    I really like the old Shoebox Fords, 49 to 51.

    The old bulletnose Studebakers.

    Dodge 4x4 Power Wagons from the 50's.

    Old Studebaker trucks.

    65 Chevy Impala Super Sport

    57 Cadillac

    Corvairs

    53 Mercury

    I could go on and on but basically I like most everything from about 49 to about 66 and the muscle cars for a few years after that.

    You know, what strikes me is that I could identify what make, model and year any car was in those days and I don't think I could do it nowadays if I was growing up now. It just seems like everything looks the same now.

              LOL , Yes ,I must Confess, went from cool to practical overnight, yikes ! Is that what getting old is all about ?

              Now all you have to do is to find a car that is BOTH cool and practical.

              Being practical does not mean you can't be cool!

              Do stay away from that Windstar though. :-)

                  No, I don't know the fanbelt trick, I never owned one, just liked em. Liked em even more after that idiot Ralph Nader got em to stop making them. 

                  And you're better than me if you can ID by the steering wheel, lol.

                    It'd be nice but at my age (39 or so, lol) I'd probably just get a decked out Suburban or Escalade for traveling and a new 4x4 pickup for hauling stuff around.

                        A new vehicle would rate at or near the top of most winners' first purchases after winning a big Jackpot.

                        What would your first car or truck be?

                        If there would be more than one, list them.

                        I could actually get one now, but be in debt forever.  Nothing would be more satisfying than to have the Lottery pay for it, instead.

                            I could actually get one now, but be in debt forever.  Nothing would be more satisfying than to have the Lottery pay for it, instead.

                            Yeah, cool car, and having it paid for with lottery winnings would make it even cooler.

                              I would purchase a couple Jeep's, lift em' up and deck them out for going through almost anything.

                              Yeah, I like the Jeeps too.

                              I always wanted to get one and trick it out for a little rock crawlin.
