What is the coolest vehicle(s) that you have personally owned?

 

What are its pros and cons?  What advice would you give to any other prospective owner?  Pictures never hurt.

That is an awesome pic, thanks for sharing.

Hahaha Epic. Mic Drop.

I don't know the make of the  car. I doubt others were made like this particular beast. It was meat coloured on the inside and blew white smoke from the exhaust. It was manly.

The best I can say is my first and present car, a 1999 white Ford Taurus. I've seen much manlier vehicles before, but none I've owned.

Pros: 

The white color makes it easy to see.

It has good gas mileage.

It was inexpensive to buy.

It has a spacious backseat.

It's small and easy to maneuver.

Cons:

It's white, hence dirt shows up way too easy.

It only has a cassette player/holder

It runs like an old lady's car.

Battery's dieing.

Transmission's dieing.

Steering's dieing.

Radio's dieing.

Car's dieing.

 

When you get to my age you'll look back and love/miss that car. Take lots of photos, that's my regret I don't have many photos of my first cars.
I swear that thing looks like a Volvo.  Volvo.  Boxy, but good.
+1!  I also agree with you Carl.  My first car was a 1966 Ford Fairlaine.  The only pictures I got of it were after I rolled it end over end 3x at 120 mph.  Have not idea where those old photos are.
I had a 95 Fire Engine Red GMC Jimmy when I was in High School. I loved that truck!
My wife had a 71 Dart Swinger, same color. It had no heat, a doorbell affixed to the steering wheel for a horn, a highly inaccurate speedometer (heh heh) and the door would sometimes fly open on sharp turn.
In short, pure driving adventure. Loved driving that car.
1966 Ford Ranchero with the 289. It was by far my favorite car I've owned thus far. With some upgrades under the hood, it could lay rubber without a problem. It had that classic muscle car look and sound, and the truck bed was an awesome convenience.  Basically it was the love child between a Falcon and a F-100, serving simultaneously as my "hot rod" and my work truck. How can that not be manly? 

I got an awesome deal on this beauty. 2000 BMW Z3 that I just picked up earlier this year. My first two cars were standard transmissions but I have been driving an automatic since 2004 and this car is fun to drive.
