From the Big 3?

Recommended Posts

If you could have one vehicle from each of the "Big 3" ... GM, Ford, Chrysler ... what would it be?

Me:

1975 Caprice Classic convertible (spring/summer/fall "fun" car)

1996 Thunderbird (summer daily driver)

2010 Ram regular cab (winter daily driver)

If I limit it to late model (last decade), here is what I would go with:

Chrysler: 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T (weekend fun)

Ford: 2011 Ford Mustang GT convertible (weekend fun, sunny weather)

GM: 2010 Cadillac CTS (commuter car)

too many choices if I include older cars.

If I expand it to what I would fill a large garage/barn with, I'd add these:

Chrysler: '06-07 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, '11 Grand Cherokee Overland

Ford: '03-10 Crown Vic PI, '03-04 Mercury Marauder, '03-08 Lincoln Town Car, '08 Mustang 'Bullitt', '06 Ford GT

GM: '09 Pontiac G8 GXP, '10 Camaro SS, '11 Caddy CTS-v coupe

All would make good daily drivers and some definitely weekend fun vehicles.

plus some oldies.

Actually, most LS6 cars were manuals. But an LS6 El Camino is hyper-rare no matter the transmission. The Caminos and the convertibles were the rarest of the LS6 pack.

Someone did, me.

No one knows exactly how many LS6 Caminos were built. The estimates range from about 12 to a few hundred.

But some were built as manuals. :AH-HA:

And that's what I want.

:facepalm:

I got it now...oops

1970 Olds 88 Royale w/ police equiptment

1966 Ford Thunderbird

1956 Imperial

Thats better.

LOL!

No worries ... I like those choices.....

BTW ... changing my 3rd choice from the 2010 Ram to a Grand Cherokee! And, for the record, my 3 choices [all of which have NO connection to FWD] ... are assuming I have NO other cars. That's right ... *gasp* ... I would not have a Monte Carlo.

But I'm not sure I could limit myself to just 3 cars...lol.
