I like the way they look too. Never been to keen on steel wheels either. I was just wondering if I was right.

Started with a 1976 Mercury Cougar. Paid about $2500 for it ($2500 too much) It looked good when I bought it...later discovered it was a complete rust bucket. Back then, it got 5 MPG on a good day. This car taught me how to carry a major toolbox and fix cars on the side of the road. Made it last for about 5 years.

I moved to GM, and followed the Cougar with a 1979 Pontiac Sunbird (needed better gas mileage). Then a 1985 Pontiac Grand Am LE fully loaded (first year model). The first "Sunday and cruise only" car followed with a 1989 Pontiac Trans Am.

Switch to Buicks and got a 1984 Buick Riviera T-Type. Now hooked on Turbo Buicks I added a 1982 Turbocharged Grand National, a 1987 Grand National, a 1986 Grand National, another 1987 Grand National, and another turbocharged 1982 Grand National.

Back to Pontiacs and a 2000 SSEi Bonneville, and a 1972 Stutz Blackhawk (it'* Pontiac related as it'* driven by a 1972 Pontiac Grand Prix drivetrain with a 455 4 bbl) and this rounds me back to where I started.....a car that gets 5 MPG on a good day.

I had an '87 Ford Crown Victoria LTD. Maroon exterior, red interior, 5.slow V8. Mint condition, had 8x,xxx miles, and driven by an old lady. Ended up selling it for something smaller, but now I miss such a big car.

For me it was a 1993 Nissan Maxima GXE. Cobalt-Blue metalic with 60k. Bought for 7,200.00 and traded it in 3 years later for 7,000.00. Though it didn't have the raw power of the 3.8 Series II, the Nissan V6 has got to be one of the most balanced engines ever made.
