My VW Sportwagon, diesel, gets the Lion's share of the driving though. 18 years ago I was about to buy a Mitsubishi 3000 GT for my wife, but decided on a Volvo 850 GT. five months later a guy drove a Buick into her trunk when she was stopped for a light. The Buick was totaled, the Volvo lost its' bumper and got two flat rear tires. Money well spent.
If you drive like an idiot, you must be prepared to face the consequences.

Sadly and shockingly,i think alcohol is responsible for around 30% - 40% of all car accidents,but (somehow) thats a socially acceptable consequence resulting from a socially acceptable drug...

I was driving a very powerfully built 1978 impala,four doors,solid one piece frame,with thick metal bumpers (that air bags have taken the place of) and i was hit head on by like a 1990 toyota or another type of car thats very similar (driven by a drunk woman) and we each were traveling around 35mph and her car was smashed and totaled and towed away and she stumbled out of her destroyed car and collapsed on the sidewalk and i was totally uninjured,but my front bumper was bent inwards like 2 inches,thats it and i drove home,unscrewed the bumper, layed it on the ground,covered it with a thick blanket,hammered it straight and screwed it back on...

Like around 20 years ago,that same 1978 impala of mine,similar to the one below,but with 4 doors,had well over 350,000 miles on it,with the same rear end and same transmission,until the night it was stolen and crashed and abandoned by some punk a$$ bitches...

1978 Chevy Impala and notice the real metal bumpers >

This was my very first car. (Not this one. Mine looked exactly like this one, except it was metallic emerald green with the white racing stripes). It was jacked up in back with 30/60 mags.

1972 Pontiac Firebird.

This was my first car a 1977 Monte Carlo that i bought in the winter of 1984 for about $1,200 from a dealers lot when it only had around 50,000 miles on it...

This car ran for several years with no trouble at all and it was built very strong and safe and it had front and back bench seats and could easily hold four adults very comfortably...

I recall often cruising around with two girls and three girls and even four girls (cuz no guys were gonna climb in and c#ck block me) several times with the interior filled with drifting mahri ah wanah smoke (*=*)

I've always liked the Mitsubishi 3000 GT's,which were made between 1990 - 2001...

Especially the earlier models like this one from 1994 >

Notice how all the cars i posted that i really like seem to be lunging forward...

They appear to be propelling themselves along with motion even though they're not moving...

Like this awesome 1969 Camaro >
