Your'e an idiot.

There are off road parks, they are the only legal places to go. Even I offroad my Jeep, I would probably clean it afterwards, then go to get groceries. I drive one car, one, that's it. How "economical" is it to own about 5 different cars? My Jeep for offroad, a commuter car to drive back and forth to work, a truck for hauling. Please

Like I said pure and simple idiot. If I ever see you or anyone near my Jeep with eggs I'll call the cops. Nevermind kicking your ass, I'd rather see you spend a night in jail and have to call your mommy to get you out.

And to the guy who said they contribute to global warming. All cars do genius. Gas mileage has little to do with it. Emissions has everything to do with it. How much CO your car is putting out, how many hydro-carbons. And if they don't pass emissions tests (some states in the US require them) then they make you take it off the road.

All the SUV's I have owned have passed with flying colors.
I'm older than most of you. Shut the hell up and get off my lawn.

I'm gettin a BMW X5 soon, does this make me a dumbass?
Yes i am going to use it as an offroad vehicle


I'd say they're pretty efficient on the carbon levels, it is a BMW. But I just couldn't see one being used for offroad, haha. We have an '85 Bronco right now.. woo. V6 carb powered. Woo. It puts out it's fair share of "gasses" >.>

Let me tell you why you hate me...

'72 Ford LTD (2-door). I just loved these things when they were new.
'72 Ford Galaxie (2-door). See above.
'89 Ford Bronco (Full Size). -Civic Smivic, puts any Honda in town (local pop about 300K) DEEP in the rear view Mirror.
'89 Ford E-150 conversion Van. my people hauler.
'92 Ford F-150 Truck. Will go anywhere.
'96 GEO Tracker (4-door). Will go anywhere F-150 can, ran ALOT of Pizza w/ this car
'00 Ford Mustang. It's all about the Mustang.

Note the lack of mini-vans. You want to hate a car.....

I live in the Midwestern US & see about every kind of weather here, so there are times I just need the 4X4 of
My Bronco, Truck & Tracker.

Emissions, Greenhouse Gasses? Burn Ethanol blend fuel. Bug your elected officials to push for Propane, CNG & other
clean fuels.

Eggs? C'mon, play nice so Grampa doesn't need to use his outdoor voice.

I'm guessing Skyline's is what they called the Bronco II in the US. A little smaller & easier on gas than my 4500 lb (about
2200 Kilo) hellbeast. The Bronco IIs here had either a 2.3 OHC I-four or a 2.8 V6, The big ones a 300 I-6 (4.9 L) or a V-8
from 302 (5.0) to a 460 (7.6). First generation ('67 - '77) ranged between a 200 (3.3) I-6 to a 351 (5.8) V-8.

Trade for an X-5? How good's the stereo?

Yeah, it's a bronco II with the V6. I think it'd be better with a 5 speed (too much work for me though.) and a less restrictive airflow. Didn't they have that HUGE thing back in the early 80s on Emissions? or was that 70s?

Most SUVs nowadays aren't SUVs but all wheel drive cars ... Toyota Rav4s are a great example of "cute utes" . Front Drive and All wheel drive, 4 wheel independent suspension, car engine and unibody construction, no solid frame at all.

Truck based SUVs are good for highway use - perfect example is a Ford Excursion. They don't get the greatest mileage, but you don't need to make 10 trips to the supermarket to buy groceries becuause you can fit eveything in them. And a diesel Excursion will last 300,000 miles easily. They are built tougher and last longer.

Full point for Righty.

Best part of the diesel is better MPG, why diesels caught on in the US. When properly maintained some of the Diesel SUVs
& trucks get around 20 MPG.

Just don't call it cute!

Anyone hear what's happening w/ Chrysler now that Daimler Benz is selling out their interest? Caught something about that
last week, but no details on the cars.

I don't call them cute utes, auto magazines call them cute utes because they are so small.

Yes, Daimler is selling chrysler off to a liquidator. Most likely, Chrysler is going to split up - so Jeep might be sold to another company (hypothetically)

Yeah, I read in a few places a Canadian Finance group was the buyer, but has anyone heard what they plan for what cars they are gonna' build? Are they still bringing back the Challenger or just build crapwagon minivans. If they don't bring
back the Challenger, they just as well merge w/ Skoda!

Obviously, minivan would be a better choice


If you think I'm serious you're a fucking idiot

Really though, not all of them are bad. Unless you use a damn Ford Expedition for a DD, or anything huge like that you don't use for work.

I would use a ford expedition for a daily driver. It would outlast small cars atleast threefold and if I got in any sort of wreck, I'd come out on top.
