    ^ I've seen a slightly later Benz than that parked at a old folks home I sometimes pass by, if I see it again with my camera I'll take a pic of it. It looks like it just rolled off the factory floor.

    If I ever find a rare Alfa 90 it's mine. A short lived luxury model with digital everything.

    Hmm, could be a automatic fire extinguisher to save the driver. But if the car was rear ended ?

    You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
    You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

    Someday, I'd love to build out one of these into a mini RV:

    I dunno, man, that's like an anti-Sentra or something. Can't quite bring myself to consider a faux-woodie Cherokee "beautiful"...

    I have been hunting for a new vehicle and the needs of the shop warrant a little more load carrying and towing capacity... I was not looking for a woody but have always been quite enamoured with the 4.0 H.O. I6 engine which is one of the best power plants ever made.

    You don't need a van for an arm chair ride.



    For as long as I've been alive we've had a Leyland EA van like this. It use to run but not anymore, there huge inside!
