Reply to "Car = Personality??"

My first, and only, car was a 1972 Toyota Corona. I called it the Road Warrior, because it was a bit of a worry on the roads Big Grin but having said that, I took a perverse pride in driving a car that was as old as me. I had that car for over ten years, and it finally gave up the ghost a few months before I moved to America.

I now share custody of a 1998 Jeep Wrangler, which I defend as "not really an SUV" because it's compact, and besides, if you saw our front driveway (which becomes almost impassable after snow) you'd understand our need for a car like this, out here in the Connecticut backwoods.

That said, if I could have any car, I'd probably make it a Nissan Sylvia (a sporty sedan, not available in the USA, and in fact only a limited import in Australia - Japan exports them after they're a few years old, my dad has one and as well as being a lot cheaper than a new car, they are sexy as hell. I drove that car for two weeks while my folks were overseas, and the whistles I got when stepping out of the vehicle... VERY NICE!) Or maybe, to be patrotically Aussie, I'd get a Holden Monaro... soon to be sold in a slightly modified format (left hand drive, etc)under one of the sportier GM labels here in the USA. I think tooling along Interstate 95 in one of those babies would totally ROCK... Big Grin
