I also think it would be fun to get a cheap Smart car.

You'd get more use out of a nice golf cart.

I'd use them for about the same purpose, probably.  :lol:

However, I've always wondered it it would partner well with tailgating.  You could pull it all the way into a spot right beside a regular truck, and then have all this room for tailgating behind the smart car.

That's what you put into the truck that you are tailgating next to.  See, the Smart car is merely to hold the spot next to the truck.  I suppose a Motor Cycle might work for this too, but sometimes they don't let motor cycles take up a whole spot and force them into a special area.

This thread inspired me to look into how obtainable those old Honda Elements are.

Two different 90's convertibles for me. Because I'm not a savage like the rest of you people I'm including pictures. In high school I saw a Chrysler LeBaron convertible, and I fell in love.


will you be changing your name from Kitty to Karen?

I really want a Miata, but I do not think they are ugly.   :don'tcare:

Is there a car from the early to mid 90's that isn't ugly?

I love the 90s cars aesthetic compared to the monstrosities of today.

Suzuki x90 looks like it was pulled out of a cartoon, from the 90s, and ugly as eff. Also kind of want one.

I once blew clove smoke in a guy's face that cut in front of me in the line to KJ's.

Both the 90's Lincoln Continental and Town Car are tremendous.

Circa 2000, every 3rd car on the road in Salina was a mid-90s Pontiac Grand Prix or Grand Am. I don’t know if this was true everywhere or some used car dealer in Salina got truckloads of them and dumped them at a discount.
I got a guy on the other line about some white walls

have been seriously looking for late 70s Ford Crew Cab truck to turn into a daily driver. It is absolutely insane to me what dentside trucks and even some square body chevy trucks are bringing right now.

just pure sex.. I would get a single cab but see the kids thread.

That's awesome.

Just remembered that the Grand Am and Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais came with the "Quad 4" motor that we all lusted after. :driving:
