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.
'78 Ford F150 4x4 long bed, 2" body lift, 32" tires, 351M engine, although it had auto trans.  Bench seats, no ac (in South FL!).  Loved that truck.   '78 Jeep CJ7, rebuilt I6, 4spd manual, I was rebuilding from frame up.  Also owned a '66 Chrysler 300 that I was 'rebuilding' but ended up selling that without getting much done.  Now I own a 2008 Ford Fusion, which is a manly car as it is the one I use to tote the kids around in to baseball, dance, football games, etc.  So in essence it is not the car that makes the man, it is the man that makes the car.

Currently '99 Wrangler 2" body lift 2.5" suspension lift, I6, 5spd manual, 31" tires (want to go back to the 33s).  It's a work in progress.

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.
