How much does this sled cost?

I like all the storage, especially all the hidden areas.  He mentions "perfect for hoarders!"

Not a great vehicle if you're right handed - you sit on the wrong side to begin with and have to shift with your left hand.  You'd think this would be marketed with an automatic.  Then, when he sets off down the road, I thought, "Whoa, he's driving down the wrong side of the street."

Well, to me it is a good looking, chunky little useful conveyance.  Love the diesel with stick.  Europeans still love stick shifts.  If you want something more whimsical, choose its sister vehicle, the Citroen Berlingo...

Plus, ya gotta know how to switch hands, otherwise certain things get very boring!  😉

Those funky Eurovans do have their charm.

The snow stopped for a while...a lot of wind blown snow in my driveway...shoveled a path from the garage to my sister's STS and around it, brushed off the snow on it.  Must be 8-10 inches or more drifted behind it down the driveway to the street...ugh.   And now it's snowing again..

All rain here, lots of it. Tried shoveling it, didn't go so well. Will try again later.

Much more sensational in its day than the "unnamed EV concept" Cadillac of now.  Sad to see such a tremendous loss of relevance in what was once the absolute pinnacle of aspirational automotive greatness.

LOL it's entirely different.  Why would you laugh (reaction to olds' post reiterating a known fact about repeated, even days later, fire flare-ups with EVs) at that post?  Really.

Really you have to ask why I find his post funny pointed at you who likes to live in the past.

:P Comical, that is for sure. Yet we still love ya too! 🤗

Something funny about having the AWD SUV and FWD CUV in the garage, with the RWD sedan outside..

My one buddy has a bunch of varied cars; one is a '67 Catalina. He keeps it because he was born in '67. I really don't get that- there's no correlation. Every vintage vehicle I own is older than me- I've bought what turned me on. Olds- go get yourself a '70 442; you're allowed! ;)

Yep. Im allowed. Thanx for the encouragement.  

I just need to put the kids through school and get myself a good little nest egg for the wife and I and then I will probably get one. Im working hard on accomplishing those things. Im almost there!

Perfect car for ocnblu right here: it's green, has utility/cargo space for his Birkenstocks, frisbee & portable cookstove, not to mention the 6.2L Escalade LS engine. It even has a clutch pedal (tho it appears to be wired up under the dash- can't have it all) ~

Obviously it gained weight over the original aluminum 4, but as a point of reference- a stock '71 Vega wagon was just over 2200 lbs.

I know, right...as compared to the modern dismal strip mall store of today.
