Fubar Posted February 19, 2013 Share Posted February 19, 2013 One of Beemerboy's posts and an episode of "Top Gear" (the good one, not the U.S. version) got me thinking: What kind of four wheeled vehicles have these motorcycle fans been lucky/cursed to drive on non-bike days? You didn't have to own it, but you did have to drive it somewhat regularly so test drives and borrowing your neighbor's Ferrari once DON'T count! And what is on their fanboy/girl, put-a-poster-on-the-wall list? I'll start but the tears will probably short out the keyboard. 1970 Dodge pick up - 3 on the tree. Learned to drive on this, my mom's truck, when I was 10 in 1972 1975 Dodge pick up (mom's) My 1st car(1978): 1973 Buick LeSabre -took all the abuse I could dish out and was easy to repair 1973 Buick Skylark - P.O.S. w/3 dead cylinders in a V-8 (family car) 1965 Chevy Bel-Air - 3 on the tree (family car) 1976 Chevy Vega wagon - 4 speed, baby shit green.

Too much of Detroit's crappiest offerings from the 70's. Well, that would include ALL of Detroit's offerings from the 70's.
