KORED, I love your wagon! I had one just like it a few years ago. With studded tires, it would go anywhere. Actually I am looking for another. Here's my daily driver and my work truck:



The Aspire is a great car. The old Ford is good too but has a 360 and burns a quart of oil every 50 miles or so :)

EDIT: Thanks Solidus for posting the pics.

I'm a Chevy guy, but that is a darn nice truck. I would pull that engine and freshen it up. a quart in 50 miles is really bad. You've got to have a few broken rings in that thing.

Thanks! Actually it was just overhauled about 2K miles ago because it used so much oil to begin with. It's always used oil! I dunno', i'd like to drop in a 460:)

I mad maxed my Z28. Couldn't tell you the gas mileage it gets, but it passes everything but a gas station which is why I don't drive it much anymore.

I have two other cars but no pics yet.

My daily driver and fun vehicle is a 1992 Suzuki Vitara, 1.6 and a 5 speed manual, I love the small size of it and the light weight, with the low range box, I can often get into place similarly out fitted lager trucks can't go.
Has now been fitted with a 2 inch lift, 31 inch all terrain tires, and a 33 gallon fuel tank. Planning some bar work, snorkel, winch and a roof rack.
A short vid from the day after I got it:

Here's mine,
1988 Toyota 4runner in petrol. I got in in petrol because the engine is cheaper to repair, you can still get new OEM 4Y petrol engines for around a grand. Even with the stronger petrol motor, it couldn't pull the skin off a decent rice custard.

The best part is the FRP top can come off, making it a pretty good spotlight rig.



And our other car, a 1989 Ford Laser. Get great mileage, makes a great run about and still capable of handling longer trips. Ford Australia made these locally from Mazda bits, and being a very popular make you can still get parts.

The fleet

The family rig, 2002 Trailblazer, this stays at the house for the wife to drive when she needs, or if we take the whole family out together:

The old pig truck, a 1991 F250 7.3L Diesel, this guy generally lives at the house unless being used for hauling. Bought it for $800 from an old guy who had it sitting out in a field, after a bit of work it runs and drives just fine. The clearcoat was peeling terribly as tends to happen to some models in this age range, so I sanded it down and rattle canned the olive drab on myself. An old work truck isn't supposed to look too pretty, and it protects it well from the elements.

Daily commuter, I don't have any pics of my actual one so here is a stock image, 2007 Kawasaki KLX250S:
