WHAT'S IN YOUR GARAGE?

Hey guys, for a new quiz I'm going to work on, tell me what car you currently drive, and also if you won the lotto, which dream car would you put in your garage? Thanks

In my garage(s) I have a Saturn Ion, a Jeep Liberty and a 1950 Mercury. If I won the lottery I would by my wife a '48 Chevy Woody and I would have (built) a duplicate of the Milner coupe from American Graffiti.

I drive a Ford Taurus Station Wagon (no heat or air conditioning, but it gets me to work and back, which is all I need.) My hubby drives a Mercury Villager - has heat and air conditioning. Is there something wrong with this picture????

My dream car has always been a Jaguar.

So far I like the fact that we are all owners of American cars.

In my garage, there's an ancient desk, a washer and drier
multiple old computer parts, hardware and software
pieces of scrap wood and about 30 partly-used cans of paint.
An old wrought iron fence, a large dog crate,
an old rug, various gardening implements and chemicals
Old bathtub and broken lawn mower. Plumbing snake....
Moulding and baseboards never put back after painting.
remnants of laminated, tile and marble flooring....

My car sits out in the rain and the snow!!!!

I drive a Chevy Silverado. If I had the proverbial windfall o' cash, I would want my '63 Corvette back with all the toys and tweaks I had done to it.

I drive an '02 Chevy Suburban. Yeah, it's a gas guzzler, but I have seven grandkids that I often transport. Don, I'm also proud that most of us drive American cars. When our US Steel plant closed down, we saw lots of bumper stickers saying, "Hungry? Eat your foreign car!" I know that now lots of "American" cars are primarily made elsewhere, and lots of "foreign" cars are made in the US, but still prefer to drive something with the Ford or Chevy name on it. We drove Fords for years and put hundreds of thousands of miles on them with no problems (except those darn o-rings in the air conditioners for a while!) It also appears that most of us don't drive brand new cars, which also supports what I believe. Unless you have lots of money you don't need, it's foolish to be always trading in cars. Now my dream car--I've always loved Jags, and now that they're a part of Ford. . . .

Currently running:

The mainstay is a 2002 Olds Slihouette van, complete with the faintly familiar aroma of Sonic onion rings following last weekend's pasting of Duke at Walace-Wade.

The sleeper is the orange and white 1963 Chevy Pickup. BTW, it IS possible to hand paint a truck and not have it look gawdawful....plus it cost about $75 to do it.

I have an 02 Honda CRV. My husband has a couple of pickups. They are white. They are big.

No sports car dreams. Its not practical for me. I actually would like to continue with an SUV since we have extreme winter here and 4 studded tires combined with 4 wheel drive keeps me safe, but something a little bigger than the CRV because the kids are quickly outgrowing it. I'm going to say a Cadillac Escalade.

My Husbands Chevy Impala is in the garage, and my Chevy Malibu is out in the cold. If I did win a Lottery I would build a BIGGER GARAGE,and buy myself any new car with heated seats.

Sherilynn...you DON'T want a Jaguar! The two happiest days in my husband's life were: 1) when he bought the Jag; 2) when he sold the damn thing. But, it did have a lovely ride when it felt like working.

I concur with Kaufman's opinion regarding oil companies. We now drive a Honda CRV - love it. We're retired so we don't need two cars. I don't share Donden's sentiments concerning American cars. Japan was making smaller, more reliable, safe cars while American manufacturers were concentrating on status and performance. Most Californians drive foreign cars because of the distances we must drive and our cars must be reliable on the freeways and get better gas mileage. Besides, many foreign cars are made here in the U.S. providing jobs for American workers; Accord, Acura, Honda. If I won the lottery I sure wouldn't buy a car...I'd save it for the hard times that are a'comin'.

I have a little green Honda Civic, hubby has a green Ford Ranger.
He wants a 32 Ford Hot Rod, I want the Dragula, the Koach, a late-40's Hudson Commodore 8, and any Big Daddy Roth Kustom rod.
My 6-year-old daughter wants a purple rod with flames.

I have a LandRover and Ben has a Jeep Wrangler. We also have a Nissan Pathfinder that we drive the most because he works for Nissan and gets a REALLY good lease deal. We put all the mileage on the lease car. I think the LandRover is a 2001 and it only has 15,000 miles on it. I will probably never have another car unless I get too old to drive!!!

I drive a 2005 Golf, my son has a 2006 Golf, my husband has a 1996 Honda Civic, my daughter has a 1998 Mirage, my daughter's boyfriend has a Toyota Celica. The garage is full of junk so they're all in the driveway.

I have a 2004 Honda Accord, which looks just like everyone else's 2004 Honda Accord. I wanted to hold out for the green, but the car guys said they rarely come in green, so I got the gray like everyone else.

No dream car here - just want reliability thank you. Though I do think that the Subaru Outback is a really cute looking car.

Oh yeah - and there are no cars in my garage - only junk. The garage is too far from the house to make it a reasonable place to keep the car. No one wants to walk from the garage in the rain.

Black Nissan X-Terra and an inherited 1981 copper and white Chevy Silverado with honest-to-God 48,000 miles on it - most of which I put on it. Guess my dad mostly went to the barber?

If I won the lottery, I'd sell it all and buy a yacht. But since that's not the question and we're dreaming here, I'd go with a '62 blue and white Vette - the first I ever saw. Love at first sight.

I drive a Yukon with 100,00+ miles on her. So far I love it, as it's been the most reliable form of transportation I've ever owned. However, when I win the lottery I'll just hire a chauffeur as I can't see well at night any more and really don't like to drive long distances. If I were to be completely selfish, I'd buy a long black limousine with a stocked bar, recliner seats and media center. Realistically, it will probably be an updated Yukon...and maybe a houseboat to cruise the Intracoastal.

If you are still collecting responses. I drive a MAZDA Protege and my dream vehicle is an army surplus Humvee or ILTIS.

Mrs Familiaris drives a Honda Accord. I have many pairs of boots.

I think her dream car would be either a reconstructed version of her favourite previous car - late '70's Mercedes 230, shaped like a brick and the size of a whale - or something obscenely fast and Italian. (maybe a 1963 Ferrari 250 GTL...)

Mine would be something like a cross between James Bond's Aston DB5 (from 'Goldfinger'), the Arkansas Chugabug and Homer Simpson's concept car:
Homer: (Narrating) "All my life, I have searched for a car that feels a certain way.
Powerful like a gorilla, yet soft and yielding like a Nerf ball. Now, at last, I have found it..."

Oh! I forgot the dream car. I've always said my dream car is one that is fully paid for and cranks up every time I turn the key in the ignition. The Lincoln meets that criteria. My next dream car would have to be a Prius or some other very reliable, economical, green machine.

I drive a 2001 Ford Excursion (diesel) with 131,000 faithful miles and I guess we'll see who dies first. Not so economical but its a necessary evil for pulling a livestock trailer, not to mention four grandchildren and a Great Dane. My dream car is and has always been a Jaguar XKE Series I 4.2 Roadster. Just waiting for that perfect ticket.
