We may disagree on sports teams and dairy products, but at least we both knew IOM was the only choice for paint.

PS: post a picture of your dovetail spoiler i see in your sig. i've been eyeing one for awhile. which did you go with?



Back on topic, I'm 100% behind the Hummer H1 idea.

We have an 06 H2 and I love it! is it practical? Hell no! Is it cool? Yeah! My mom tried to trade it in a couple of years ago to get her Escalade and I cried all the way to the dealership...LOL! In the end we didn't trade it she just bought the Escalade. Alls well that ends well!

If you can find a used Toyota 4 Runner with low mileage you would be a happy camper. I have driven mine for 9 years with no problems. I hear that the 4 ltr engine is good for 300 thousand miles. Lot of room and I average about 19 MPG.

Used 2008+ M3 Sedan. The new 328i sedan is also a very nice car with the turbo 4.

Watch for a low mileage Cadillac SRX crossover. I recently purchased a 2012 loaded with under 1000 miles for real close to 30k Owned several cadillacs. Just can't beat the quality for the price. Could meet your needs and you will love driving it. Good luck

Okay, I have had kids and a Dog I tote around from time to time. My vehicle as a Daily Driver is a 2010 V-6 Malibu. 252hp / 251tq. Enough room, great traveling car, enough pep, good winter driving and get 29-30mpg highway / 21- 23 city. I believe 2010 was the last year they put v6's in these things. Find a good low mileage used one for about 14-16k.

Had mine for a couple of years and love it... The Camaro I ordered will be my toy.

Actually that's not a bad idea. The R/T was available in an AWD if I'm not mistaken.

A 2009 Saturn Vue is a pretty good bargain right now or it's twin a used Chevy Captiva. Both very good vehicles.
I have a 2008 Vue with 54,000 miles on it I gave 17K for last year. It has everything on it from Auto Climate Control to leather seats.

I came from a 2008 Infiniti G35. Awesome car, 306 HP, very fast for its category and handles like its on rails. I looked at the CTS, Acura TL, Lexus IS350 and the G35 was better priced for what you got and I preferred the performance over the others. In my opinion, it was a better value. I had it for 4 years and loved every minute I had it. Ok, why did I get rid of it? It was just time for something faster and I’ve always loved the gen 5 Camaros, so I pulled the trigger. I do miss it sometimes, the 2 extra doors and bigger back seat were handy, but I still like the Camaro better.

I think the Buick Regal turbo looks pretty nice. It has 270 hp, plus you can get it with a 6 speed manual.
