OT What is your cage?

Just wondering what you guy's (and girls) are driving? Every once in a while I see a picture with someones car in the background. It seems like most are BMW, VW or Audi.

My daily driver (in the winter) is an 05 TDI beetle that I bought new. It now has 112,000 miles with no issues. Still gets 48-50 mpg on my 140 mile a day commute. Here is a picture of it up at the family farm.



The wife drives a Audi a6 avant. The AWD is great when we are up to our eyeballs in snow.

post em up boy's and tell me what you like or dislike about your 4 wheel ride.

Cool Jeep Bill!

My dad had a CJ5 with a V8 in it when I was in high school. That thing would beat just about anything off the line in a stop light to stop light race. Just put in 4wd, rev it to 3500rpm and side step the clutch.

Thanks Bill.

Mykol,
Of course its clean, I just got it..

I had an 83 CJ7.. 4"lift w/33's








but made the mistake of pricing it to a guy, who asked about buying it... Won't be letting this one get away.

Nice Jeep Bill!

Here is my lineup.

2007 Toyota Tundra
2000 Ford Explorer (wife's car, she needs an upgrade)
1989 Honda Prelude (daughter's car)
1976 Ford Bronco (currently undergoing EFI conversion)
1991 Ford Thunderbird (EFI Organ donor)

I have been to Germany twice in the last 6 months, and will be for a few days again next week. These trips always make me want to ditch the pickup for an Audi A4 or VW Passat. However a week back in AZ makes me realize that neither of those would be a very practical vehicle for the desert SW. so I will stick with my big Pickup for now.

I have two Mustangs a '87 Hatch and a '93 coupe. Neither run presently though and don't expect to be anytime soon as the bikes are just to much fun.

1967 Jeep - Jeepster Commando softy
1972 VW Kombi Camper pop top
2003 Jeep Wrangler softy
2002 Subaru Liberty B4 (hoochi mama)

seems we could start a Jeep club

The Jeep is too small for what I need but I am stuck with it fo rnow.

The Liberty is lovely, fast, safe, a boxer - say no more

The Jeepster needs a clutch

The VW Kombi camper is being neglected as we cant carry the boy in it - I think it's going to be on the market

I'd like:

A SUpercharged Range Rover
a lotus Elise for the track
Maybe an M3 or a Rolls Royce Phantom

..is that asking too much
