1992 Ford Thunderbird

1993 Dodge Intrepid

Both are running fine. I'll probably be looking next year as I originally bought the T-Bird with the intention of keeping it 10 years. I'm scoping the new Cadillac CTS and others.

The Dodge was my brother's car but unfortunately he passed away and left it to me. I let my parents use it during the summer. I guess I'll keep it as long as it's road worthy.

1995 Mazda Miata M-Edition - My transport

1996 Chrysler T&C - Family Transport

1977 Honda Goldwing GL1000 - Currently undergoing surgery

1998 Honda VFR800i - 2-wheel vehicle of choice

And proud to say, I put more miles on motorcycles last year than I did in my Miata... About 10k for the Miata and about 12k for the bikes.

2001 Aztek "Citrus Green Metallic"

I don't care if you think it is ugly.=P (Have heard that way too often)

It handles well in the snow, roomy inside, and I like the way it rides. I can also tow just about anything, and hve enough cargo space for just about anything.

It is also very fun to drive

I currently drive a 2001 BMW X5 and my wife a 1998 Mercedes E320. I almost traded the X5 for an 2001 //M5 the other day but what the heck, the X5 is a blast to drive! I am also looking to pick up a 1969 Shelby GT500 for something to kick around in :)

Interesting topic...

2001 Black Chevy Blazer Z-71 - 2 Door w/ Off Road Package and wide wheel wells...20,000 miles

1992 Dodge Stealth RT/Twin Turbo.. 65,000 miles

Looking at selling the Stealth this year and purchase a BMW Z3 Convertible for the summer...

Dish Network XM Sirius? Talk about a no-win situation.

Me: 2002 Infiniti Q45, 340HP ... the only thing I don't like
about this one: it doesn't play MP3 outta box.

Wife: 2002 (or was it 2001) BMW 328 (such a girly car !)

Both of them soon will be 1YO ... if I knew that two planes
would fly into WTC (where I used to work), and another
one would hits 5-gon I would've probably gotten different cars :(

Mits 55805 + DTC100, both are 2+YO :)

My wife drives our 3-series Bimmer as well, although I wouldn't classify it as a "girly" car...especially with the 17" rims.

Toyo Rav-4, Celicas, Geo anything

those are chick mobiles.

Me: 1997 Land Rover Defender Limited Edition D90. Only 300 of these were imported to the U.S.A. (mine is serial #233). Added ARB bumper and Warn M10000 winch.

Only a few thousand D90's were ever brought into the country. Imports stopped with the 1997 model year, since they don't have airbags, which are required in the U.S.A. for 1998 and after.

http://coyotecreekranch.com/DTVplots...stDefender.jpg

I've had grown men ask me adopt them when they see this car. ;)

For around the ranch, 1996 Polaris Magnum 6X6 ATV.

For heavy hauling, 1995 F-250HD 4X4 Supercab, 460 cu. in. V8, 4.10 rear end.

Wife drives 1997 Land Rover Discovery.

With 106 replies this thread has become unreadable and should end. I unfortunatlely chose the e-mail notification option when I posted and now get daily useless e-mails. Why do we care if someone with HDTV also drives an SUV when the whole world drives them? Anyone no if you can reverse the e-mail notification option?

You can unsubscribe to the thread through your user control panel. It's available at the top of this page, on the left, right next to the register button. Look for "user cp".

If you don't care then perhaps you should not have chosen to reply or track the thread.

The simplest way would have been to uncheck the option when you wrote the above reply. But as already mentioned you can also choose to edit your user options (above the thread) where all of the threads you are tracking are listed.

Good luck.

This is the "thread that wouldn't die" begun on Dec. 24, 2001. If I ever cared I've now lost interest and cannot turn off the e-mails. The user options menu seems to only affect new posts.

I guess you should be very glad you didn't subscribe to the "Denver HDTV Tower" threads, which must be pushing 5000 replies all told by now... ;)
