With all this talk of gas prices, it made me start wondering about other people and their cars. What kind of cars do you own and/or drive? What do you think of them? Pros and cons? What kind of cars have you owned in the past? What did you think of them? Why do you not have them anymore? What kind of realistic car would you like to have and what kind of dream car would you like to have? We currently own a 2002 Pontiac Grand Am (what I drive), a 1986 Crown Victoria (what hubby drives), and a 1991 Mercury Cougar (my 16th birthday present) I love my Grand Am. It's red, and other than it seeming like this is what every body else has, it's a great car, good mileage, runs good, not very many problems. The fact that it's fairly new doesn't hurt anything. The Crown Victoria is old and shows it's age. It's white and rusting, and it looks like crap. But it runs excellent! It has over 120 thousand miles on it and it still runs very smooth and doesn't give us very many problems. My husband hates it though, because it's so huge, a gas guzzler, and it looks trashy! The Mercury Cougar was my 16th birthday present, and it was pretty good, but gave me a few problems over the years. Before I got the Grand Am, it was dying on me about once a week or more, in the middle of intersections or on busy streets, and sometimes it wouldn't start back up. I've had to have some expensive repairs done on it, the same repairs my mom had to do on HER cougar when she had it. It's a nice car, and the mileage was ok, but I wouldn't reccomend it on account of all the repairs I had to deal with. My mom has a Pontiac Grand Prix. It's older than my Grand Am, but it runs just about as good. So far we are having good luck with Pontiacs. My husband used to drive a 1986 Pontiac, forgot the model, but it was a really good running car too, although had a few problems. We sold it when we inherited the Crown Vic, because the Crown Vic was in better running condition. My realistic want car: I'm pretty happy with my Grand Am. I do wish we had something like another Grand Am or something similiar for my hubby though. My dream car: A Navigator, Escalade, VW Beetle (old or new!), or a Mini Cooper.
