    Right now I have a white Hyundai Santa Fe. It will be my favourite until I replace it. I don’t really care about cars.

    The Ford Edsel

     -- no specific color, nor year; I know no interesting facts other than I think the car is considered a failure because few people bought them? I don't know but I don't think they were around for a long period of time --  

    I love the way they look

    Fuel hogs and really awful to drive, apparently. I never owned one but spoke at length with a "classic" car collector who did. Took it out for a couple of club cruises but it handled so badly that he hadn't driven it since.

    But they look great! Ha!


    That's interesting, though, what you shared, thanks, Slartibartfast. I admit my Edsel Admiration is purely visual. :)

    Is fully paid for.
    Runs well.
    Has plenty of trunk space for transporting large quantities of tildes.
    Gets good gas mileage on those long road trips to various Harem chapters.
    Sleeps two in relative comfort when companion of the evening refuses to stick a crowbar in her purse and pay for the No-Tell Motel.
    Can easily pass international inspections for when I need to go back and forth between the US and Canada to fight the divorce proceedings.
    Is completely inconspicuous during Minnesota stalking fact-finding expeditions.
    The Anti-Vegemite Detection Kit fits neatly on the roof.
    The lettering on the plates does not create a grammar conflict.



    As you can see, no particular make or model is named here for purposes of confidentiality and personal safety. Just let it be known that my only preference for color of cars is that of power: black.

    Sounds like a very practical vehicle or large truck, which ever applies.

      I take umbrage, sir, UMBRAGE! I happen to be not only a high-class businessman with holdings in various locales, I have also been named a pillar of the community by more than one civic organization and the chamber of commerce, just prior to the mayor’s office granting me the key to the city and the county supervisors naming me citizen of the quarter.  That vehicle is merely a symbol of the gratitude I’m shown for my dedication to humanity. Grrrrrrr.

    The one I own now. It gets me where I want to go. Nothing fancy at all. Still looks good after 10 years.

    The first one I ever owned. Cheap to run, easy to repair. I'd be driving it still if some character in a ute (pickup) with a bull-bar on the front hadn't ignored a STOP sign and T-boned me. That made the little car very unhappy, fire-fighters had to cut me out of it.

    A few bruises and minor contusions. The torsion bar suspension took the brunt of the impact (doesn't give the smoothest ride, but you can't bend it with a wrecking ball) and saved me from breaking both legs, but I was trapped between the dent and the transmission tunnel - hence the need to get the fire department involved.

    I'm glad you were basically okay, too.
