If I ever win Mass Cash, I would purchase a 2004-2005 Subaru Forester 2.5XT with automatic transmission, leather seats and the panormaic sunroof. I could get one in really good condition for about $13,000-$15,000. That is my dream car.

Genome, I wish a few of my wives woulda been more like you when it came to buying vehicles.

        In March,1969, I re-enlisted in the USAF. My friend says to me,"Bob, I want to show you the car, you need, I didn't have one, just came from Nam, in December. Drove down to the Oldsmobile dealer, sitting in the showroom was a red with white pin stripes, 69 Olds 442H/O. Never seen anything so pretty, including my first wife. I bought it, then and there. Never have own a car that caused me so much trouble. It was the only one in Great Falls, Montana. Within 3 months, every cop in Great Falls knew me. The judges knew me, by name. The last time in court, the judge told me, " if I ever see you in my court room again, you will be walking, not driving". Sold that car as fast as I could, but I never forgot it. Didn't know but one speed, wide open!!!

        i think the name of that color is "arrest me red" LOL

          No matter where in the planet i´ll be: Jeep Liberty....if they change in the future i just fix the old one and use it...there is no car like it, is perfect...

          i preffer a jeep liberty over a lamborgini or corvette...i think is the best car ever produced....

          another car that it too to me is the best car ever produced to me, is the chevrolet corsica...is my favorite car of all times...

          i rather have 1 chevrolet corsica or jeep liberty than 8 brand new corvettes...

          The Forex trades: 1.6 Trillion dollars EVERY day, that´s more than the GDP of the Carribbean Central America, COMBINED. Enough to feed every crook out there for centuries...To all Geniuses & Powers Countries of the World the Planet needs breakthroughs in all Medicine, Veterinary, Biology related fields, Psychology, Population Psychology/Sociology..They need to genetically ingeneer new plants species/types to give more variety of plants and thus have more resources for combating diseases¨

              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.

              you're right about nader being an idiot,but i think he is given to much credit,the storey as i understand it is that the general already had ordered a stop to new development work and just keep up w/safety req. for the last 4 years the car was made.

                Aw man,  you're bringing back memories. Never had a H/O, but my sister and I only drove Cutlass's, 69-72 until we were out of college. My dad purchased not one, but two 70 442's, both with the W-30 option. My sister and I still think he did it to keep the boys in the driveway and away from us girls. In 81 Dad talked my sister into her first car purchase, a 69 442. Great car. He caught her drag racing one of the boys with his 75 Camaro, and only took her DL away for a week because she won. This is the same Dad who bought the two of us a 69 Camaro convertible to learn to drive on when we were 13 & 14, and left us at the curb waiting for the school bus while he drove to work with the top down. He then sold the Camaro to buy a Corolla so we would learn to drive stick shift. Mind you, this was all before either of us were even eligible for drivers ed. Between my sister and I, we pretty much taught our classmates to drive stick in the simulators. 

                I used to be able to (maybe still can) ID any US made car from about 1955 to 1975. After that, they turned into cookie cutter fugly boxes. 

                So, let's add a 1970 Olds 442 W-30 (convertible if I can find one) to my dream car list. Hippy

                            Sounds like my dad. He taught me to drive a Jeep and a tractor when I was 7 years old. One day he came home from work and asked me why there was no gas in the tractor. Because I spent the afternoon making designs in the sand (we had a big sand driveway) with the tractor tires. LOL
