I like this question as I was discussing this with a friend just the other day.
My first favorite car has to be the Volkswagen Beetle. I'm not talking about the "new" Vokswagen "bug" that is supposed to pass as a "peoples'
car". I'm talking about the beetle that you can repair yourself with a screwdrive. If you damage a fender, anybody can take off six screws and pop
another one back on. The windshield washer is powered by the pressurized air from the spare tire. Of course you freeze in the winter because the
so-called heater was, well, useless.
All in all, this was a great, practical car that was efficient to run, easy to maintain and, yes, fun to drive.
My second favorite auto is the Mustang 5.0 -- any year. I especially love the redesigned Mustang introduced in 2006. It was suggestive of the
Mustangs from the Muscle Car era of the late 60s but with the sophistication of the newer Euro cars. Another great car. There is nothing like the
acceleration of the massive five litre engine powering a relatively light Mustang body. In the day and age of high gas prices, this car is decadence
Wait, I spoke too soon, where gas guzzling decadence is concerned, my third choice has got to win......the HumVee. Yeah, we all fell in love with
this car when we saw it racing across our tv screens in the first Iraq War. When "souped-up" versions of the HumVee began racing across the Baja
desert in off-track racing, I was sold. It's a great, tough and wildly impracticle vehicle to own but I love it.
