Our newest addition hasn't been photoed yet. We're too busy driving it! It'* a 2004 Honda Civic LX. Bought in June, 06 with 20K, now has 45K. We LOVE that car. I hate to say it, but the days of us buying another domestic car are pretty slim to none. We'll probably be sticking to Hondas. You just can't beat the fuel economy, fit and finish of interior, and overall durability and longevity.

Here'* what else we have, however...

1997 C1500:

It sits 99% of the time. It'* been sitting in the frozen tundra for about a month now...but runs like a top!

Needs to be completely restored. It looks good from a distance. For the time being she'* in permenant storage until I'm ready to restore it.

Mom'* '03 Expedition FX4 that i am designated to drive after most family outings







Dad'* '95 F-150, I tend to drive whenever the Bonneville can't; the only picture i have of it on my computer:



And Dad'* '67 Mercury Cougar...which i have driven 6 times!




Aside from the ugly yellow plug wires, Its a real good looking 289..or 302 (we're not sure, the engine came with a parts car, and we haven't checked)




Yeah, Those are purple neons!!!, Loook under the breather too!!
(The car will eventually be Pearl White and Purple Pinstripes/Accents)

2000 Maxima is my daily driver, 107,000 miles.

They're both black.

They almost look like the wheels from the third-generation Trans Am GTA, but they look a bit too narrow and have a different mesh style.



Pretty damn cool.

With the trim package he has, it could only be the 4.0. IMO, that engine is leaps and bounds over the 5.0.
I'm curious about your reasoning behind that. I honestly don't know much about the 4.0s except that there was a pushrod and OHC version. Which would John'* car have?

If by leaps and bounds you mean it'* more technologically advanced...of course. The Ford Windsor V8 came out in 1964, lol.

He has the 4.0 pushrod. To my knowledge, the only 4.0 put in the Rangers, Explorers and Aerostars was the 4.0 pushrod.

There was a V8 offered in 95+, but not on my base XL trim. But the 4.0L is peppy with the manual tranny (More rare in explorers)

lol, sorry, didn't see that. yeah, the 4.0 went to some other configuration in like 1998, er so making 205hp along with the 5-speed auto.
