Driving my old work truck again. 2002 F150 7700 "seven Luger" with about 260,000 on it I think. Other family members end up with anything I buy new-ish but nobody wants this pile unless they have something to move. I've been looking at couple year old Expeditions on and off for a while now but don't like the turbo V6 thing for hauling the Mustang.

@Nailbender my 2018 Expedition will haul any of my 66 Mustangs on a steel dual axle trailer easily. The ten-speed auto does a tremendous job, and the turbo on the 6 gives me V8 torque with mpg of a 6. Ford nailed it !

'06 F-150 XLT SCAB and a mildly tuned '14 Taurus SHO. I want a new truck but just can't justify it, there is nothing major wrong with the '06. It only has about 80K on it.

'08 Jeep Liberty Sport. First vehicle I bought new. Previous Jeep and Durango were leased. Only bought this one cuz they weren't leasing anymore when it was time to turn in the previous Liberty. But it's got lifetime powertrain, so I'll keep it.

Big Blue bought new in 2015 and my 67 C10 I've owned for 23 years. It was my DD during high school and some of college. I really did DD it for about 4 years when I worked at my old job, but new job puts me through a nuts traffic pattern full of morons so I usually only drive it to work a few times a month. I drive my toys so often the "new" truck is almost 5 and only has 38K on it.

My wife's been driving a 2011 Kona Blue Premium Pony Package Mustang since we bought it new in late 2010.

To the OP, that's my favorite year(s) Bronco IN my absolute favorite color combo (if you can't tell by my pics below.... and the wife's car is blue too :LOL: )

I've daily driven several Mustangs, (65 coupe, 66 fastback, 96 GT, 05 GT, 05 supercharged vert) and an honorable mention goes to my trusty 03 G35 Sedan.

These days I'm rollin' a 17 year old Toyota Highlander with 90K miles and I love it. It'll last forever, it's invisible to the fuzz, and I haven't washed it (silver) in 3 years and you can't even tell. Beaters FTW.

Yeah, some people like to hate my truck. But it's what I wanted and I like it a lot.

I don't want a full-size truck. I don't want a Ranger. I don't want a Colorado. I don't want a Tacoma. I wanted a Gladiator. It has Max Towing and a kickin' sound system. It has 4:10 gears, lots of pep and, for a truck it's pretty good on gas. :cool:

I really really wish I could do this. I just can't. My cars and driving are the one thing I really enjoy. I absolutely love my Z71, but she's such a big girl she invites door dings and all sorts of stuff so I have to always park far away, find the corners (or roof) in parking garages. Maybe when I get older I'll stop caring as much.

I did really enjoy the 2 years I had a work truck (even though I hated the job). I parked wherever I wanted, didn't care, ran it through a car wash once a week (work paid for).

It’s really liberating. The thing that did it for me was when I had the supercharged convertible. On pretty days I was forced to choose between that or the 66. Classic always won, so I ditched the fast (and lowered and therefore uncomfortable and needed premium fuel and had expensive tires) car for the beater.

Love these wagons!
I have had it for about 5 years now. It had depreciated about as much as it could when I got it. I paid the equivalent of about $800 for it. It was a 1 owner car with about 115,000 miles and the engine runs like new. It has been pampered all its life and looks really smart. I think the E39 BMW's have aged really well and still look quite modern today. With the rear seats folded down, I can get loads of stuff in the back. In the 5 years I have had it, I have just had to do regular servicing and it needed new anti-roll bar drop links all round which was cheap to buy and I fitted them.
