A 1991 maroon Chyrsler New Yorker V6 engine

Very fine car and runs fab. I'm guessing around 140,000 miles on it. If it had a cd player installed I'd practically live in it. It's ok on gas, but at this point in time anything that uses gas is a guzzler, because the gas is too damn expensive!

Thanks.

Well, as for me I don't drive either. But my "Honey Pie" does!

His car is a silver FIAT Punto, bought in 2001.

I Love his car!

I have this little, tiny two door Honda Civic (1995). It's purple. It may not go very fast, (actually it has an engine about the size of my old Barbie Jeep- remember those?) and it may not be very flashy, but it's got 117,000 miles on it and runs like new. The car's best feature: it gets 40.5 miles to the gallon. Alas, I've never come up with a name for her, though.

I don't drive, because I'm too dopey. Two weeks after passing my test 1n 1976 I was on my way to work on a TV soundtrack in Manchester - well, more than on my way - when I realised that I was thinking about something other than driving the car so intently that I'd driven right past the city and left it forty miles behind. I figured that if I could do that then I simply wasn't a safe driver, and I've never driven since. As my sight has got progressively worse, I would have disqualified myself by now anyway.

My wife does the honours now. We have a Range Rover, but unlike those strange people who use similar vehicles for runabouts, have one because it makes sense. We live up a lane on the outskirts of a rural village, have four dogs and a five-year-old son (he's six on Saturday - can't believe we managed to keep him alive so long). We also have a 1968 Hillman Imp. It's in working order, but never goes anywhere, in keeping with our green principles. It's more a treasured piece of sculpture than anything else!

I personally don't have a car, but my sister has a 2-door black Honda Civic. I forgot what my mom drives... and in 2 years (!! watch out pedestrians!) I get a 4-door Honda... (I've been planning this for a few years)

I drive a 2001 Ford Taurus... Yeah, it's not a very "cool" car... But it gets me to wherever I'm going. Someday (hopefully within the range of next year) I would like to own a Volkswagon Beetle convertible... Now THAT would be nice.

I'm not old enough to drive yet but I will be in about 2 months time. At the moment I still rely on public transport or my mum to get anywhere.

Please don't laugh... my car is... (oh I'm so embarassed)... a 1972 Dodge Dart that is <font color="green"> this colour green </font>, has vinyl seats and no upholstery on the inside of the doors, so trying to stay warm on a -40 C Canadian winter morning when the interior is made of the same material as the exterior has proven to be quite a challenge. It runs, however, and it doesn't do too badly on the highway. Plus, my friend Tasha says it's the kind of car she could imagine the Beatles making an incognito getaway in... the Beatle-Mobile, she calls it now.

I drive a 2000 two-door Toyota Echo with personalized plates (SHOW2NS). Great little car, terrific gas mileage, hasn't given me a bit of trouble. My dad also has a silver Echo; the main differences are that his is four-door and doesn't have personalized plates. We're always making the mistake of trying to drive each other's cars!

If you'd like to see the car (and me), I have pictures of the plates and the car at Showtunes Car. Please note that I have lost quite a bit of weight since those days.

I drive a 1999 Mercury Mystique. Granted it's a "senior citizen's car" but I love it anyways.
