Ponte der Teufel
You are no better than that Democrap John Murtha, a cheese-eating surrender monkey. At least Murtha was a marine, you are a nobody nobody likes.

My best car was an Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon 1975, green with tan interior and sunroof. I didn't like the tint and had it repainted at a Jaguar shop in true British racing green. I paid $5,500 for it and sold it 15 years later for $2,000 with 185K miles on the odometer, to a GM mechanic. The 260 V8 never gave any problem, the transmission clutches were replaced twice. For all I know, it's still on a road somewhere.
Will Ponte find the Gideon?
My best car was a 1972 Olds. I drove it for 10 years and had 120,000 on it and sold it to a friend. He drove it for another 10 years and he said it had 250,000, when he sold it to a farmer to drive through the fields as the body was about gone. When I moved to FL it was still going.
I'm on my 3rd and hopefully last Accord EX. Love the car. It's a 98 and I just hit the 50K mile mark a couple of weeks ago.
I wouldn't buy anything else but a Honda. I sure like the looks of AOK's little one - it's very nice - and would make a great 2nd car.
Happy motoring and Happy Thanksgiving to all the buds.
I think my GTO ("The Goat") was a '67. It had 400 hp.
That was the great power car of my dreams.
Fay wants a Corvette. She loves speed and power, and she loves to drive. I told her about the GTO.
You were a lucky man.
The body style is what first attracted me -- 21st century look but with a memory of 60's round tail light styling. Mine also has the spoiler - purely for looks, but I like it.
But the guts is what sold me. Same story as your brother's Lexus -- never been in the shop. In 100,000 miles, only 2 sets of tires, 1 set of brakes - zippo on anything else beyond normal scheduled maintenance (oil, transmission flush, etc.) Only now, 6 years later, will I even be changing spark plugs.
Style is personal, I admit, but solid mechical performance is for everyone.
well they are not cheap anymore--
It was like $3,700, new, and I beat hell in the mountains, fearles. What an effin blast.
I would still advise a Japanese auto. Honda and Toyota have some hot cars. Run forever.
