I love my cars a lot. They're my own personal space. Just like a home...mine.

Interesting~~

Here where I winter, I drive a 2015 red Ford Titanium Escape. Where I summer, I have a 2003 beige Ford Windstar van.

The van is the only vehicle I've ever named. I call it the Queen Mary since it's so long it's like trying to park an ocean liner~~ LOLOL

Ooooh! Red huh? From what I know of you here, a red vehicle seems to match your personality.

I don't have a car, I never learned to drive So it's taxi or bus for me.

I like that little blue car though.

We have had a 2005 Toyota Highlander for years, and we absolutely love it. It was perfect for long trips because he could hold everything we needed, plus anything we acquired along the way. It had low mileage when we got it, and we have put on a lot of miles, but with regular maintenance and fixing things before they become major problems, it still is a great vehicle. I hope we never have to trade it off, and if we do, it will be for a similar one.
When Joe had his broken leg in 2019, we knew the Highlander was going to be a problem for him to get in and out, even with the slide board because he couldn't bear all his weight on one leg. I looked for a shorter vehicle and found a PT Cruiser in that lovely shade of blue that you have. Yellowduck's friend Linda had a PT Cruiser and they liked it, Joe could get in and out of it easily, so we bought it. Yellowduck was always telling us that we needed two vehicles anyway, since we are way out in the sticks.
My only problem with the two of them is choosing which one to drive because we don't go out often, and I want each of them to have some use and not just sit there.


Be a prism, spreading God's light and love, not a mirror reflecting the world's hate.

I drive a Chevrolet Cobalt. Everything I need is so close I haven't put more than 4000 miles on the car in a year for a decade now. I've taken care of it and since I don't need it a lot I really don't have any interest in replacing it. I live in the suburbs and its actually amazing that just about I could possible want or need seems like its at my fingertips. I do walk a lot, about 40 to 50 miles a week so it's not unusual for me to walk to Walmart for something I might need only 2 miles away. A tank of gas lasts me a month.

For many years I drove a 1987 Toyota Celica convertible and also had a ‘91 Toyota Cressida sedan that had been my husband’s. I sold it to a friend who was returning to the states from living in Europe and wanted a car to drive back home to the West Coast.

When I retired I bought a 2014 Subaru Forester, which I still have. It has been a joy to own. I’ve driven it to Florida a few times as well as on a month-long solo cross-country trip. More recently the drives have been to Vermont.

I started out looking for a Subaru. They are highly rated for safety and performance!!

The Subaru dealership had the Ford Titanium Escape on their lot which they had taken as a trade in. It is perfect for me.

I hate cars with a passion, but I prefer pick up trucks to carry my motorcycles!

I love trucks too. I'm a Dodge Ram girl. I've had a couple of those. Both of my boys and their Dad drive Dodge Ram dually's.

MY PEUGEOT 107 IS GOING ON 16 YEARS OF AGE AND IS STILL GOING STRONG. IT IS GREAT FOR CITY DRIVING AND DOES WELL ON HIGHWAYS AND AUTOROUTES TOO. WHEN I BOUGHT IT I KNEW IT WOULD BE THE LAST AND WILL BE SO SORRY WHEN THE TIME COMES FOR ME TO STOP DRIVING.
