If I had my pick, I'd take an original Shelby Cobra with the 427 in it. Coming in close seconds are the brand new Lamborghini Murcielago or possibly an Acura NSX. Unfortunately, I currently drive a 1980 Toyota Corona (yes, Corona not Corolla). It does get me around though, and quite affordably, which is really the important part anyway.

The car that I own right now is a '97 Dodge Stratus. It's purple and has 4 doors. The car that I would love to own would be a Dodge Viper T-top in a paintjob that changes colors. That would be an awesome car to have in my opinion.

My significant other just purchased a 1967 chevy Firebird. Bright yellow. It currently has 360 horsepower, but when he is done with it in a couple days, it will have 500 horsepower. Then maybe he'll finish the interior after he screws with the engine.

Now THAT is a sexy car. Mmmmhmmm.

Anyone else notice that the only people replying in this thread are Americans? I only saw two replies from Canadians. Other than that, we're all Yanks.

What do you think this says about the importance of car-culture in America vs. the rest of the world? And why do you think Americans are so in love with cars while the rest of the world is not?

and yes, i do love my little Corolla. Even if it only has 117 horsepower. Who cares, I hardly ever take it on the freeway anyway. at least I get awesome gas mileage.

The car he was driving previously was a little Mazda of some sort. I'd take it, but I don't drive stick, as I don't know how yet. It got 36 miles to the gallon. He hated driving it because it wasn't domestic.

It takes him $20 bucks a day almost in his Firebird to get to and from work. In good traffic, that is only a 20 minute drive.

Over the last 30 years, I have owned a 1959 Morris Minor, a 1969 Fiat 850 Spider, a 1972 Toyota Celica, a 1976 Honda Accord, a 1984 Hyundai Pony, a 1988 Chrysler LeBaron, and I currently drive a 1996 Ford Windstar.

The most enjoyable car was the Spider, a 2 seater sports car convertable. It went like a bat and hugged the road like glue. But it also would short out in high humidity and was very prone to rust.

The best car I have owned was the Chrysler LeBaron. I drove it for 11 years without a major problem. So far, my 6 year old Windstar has also been without major problems.

From my highschool text:

quote:
The [US] national road network has the longest mileage of any in the world ... the majority of households own at least one vehicle ...More than any other country in the world, the United States depends on the automobile - and is suffering for it in terms of congestion, pollution and cost...

It also said how much of the US economy depends on the movement of passengers and freight across great distances - which would be a contributing factor too.

Maryha, someone else who likes Volvos!

I'm not old enough to drive, and with British Road Tax being as it is I'll probably end up not driving until I'm about 25, when I might just be able to afford it (If I save up until I'm 25 and then I dont go driving in it because Petrol prices are insane), but my dream car is a Volvo V70 T5.

My family recently decided to get a new car so when I came home and found an S70 sitting on the drive I was over the moon, but I still want a V70 T5

You know I didn't even notice the question that Gumdrop posed earlier in here because I've never poked my head in. I've never poked my head in because I've never cared about cars.

I'm happy with my $25/month mtro pass. Tell me again what the monthly cost of owning a car is...?

Cars are evil. SUVs are eviler. As Zanney pointed out, the U.S. is paying the price for its love-affair with cars, and in fact, much of the rest of the world is paying the price, too. It would make sense for Canadians to have lots of cars - seeing as the country is so very large, and the population so very spread out. But, we're not as big on the things as you all seem to be, and with George The Oil Man in the White House, I don't see that changing anytime soon. Pity, that.

I just got my hands on my license(yeah), but still must tote around my bus card. No money=no car. But on the flip side, my best friends' family has an old honda accord, which they're considering giving to me. I'm so excited, but the urge me to stay away from the freeway. Apparently it's not the safest car. But hey, whatever gets me to school and back.
