I was a RWD snob for years until my first sub-five second 0-60 sprint in six inches of snow. I'm pretty much hooked on having a center differential. While I was still up north, the weather literally couldn't turn to shit fast enough for me. Of course, now I live somewhere that never gets below 50. Oops.

The new Ford EcoBoost engines started pretty lame but there are American-spec V6s now pushing 420 ft.lbs. I would love to see Ford return to the RS2000 days where they were cramming serious turbos into small chassis. Preferably without neutering their big N/A V8s, but those days are sadly numbered.

Iv driven afew subarus, I just don't like the loose feel of them, they're obviously awesome and none of the issues the rwd has with traction, but yea just didn't like them, I guess it could be made more stiff to handle? Not really sure.

I'm guessing you don't live above the snow belt.

Up here, RWD is tons of fun until you spend your winters spinning your tires in slush.

Besides, I can hit 60 in five and a half seconds while other guys are still spinning their tires, regardless of the weather.

It's fun to own people with a station wagon.

I am proud to say I inherited one these monsters out of my grandpa's collection of "custom farm vehicles." He bought her a from a friend of his about 2 years ago and was using it as basically his go to truck for that time. Sadly though he passed away 6 month back from a heart attack and he left this too me and he left the rest of his collection and the 25 acres he lived on to my father. I miss him alot but honestly though I will always have this truck to remember him by.

Well he never cared much for money anyway, the man practically bartered or traded for everything he owned. I mean hell he traded his old power wagon and 2000 dollars for the deuce.

On the note of the land it has been passed down through the generations, he used to have about 50 acres total but as the decades passed they sold it little by little to stay afloat or pay for the kids college tuition. Heck my grandpa sold a lot of his land to buy my dad and his brother the houses and the land they sit on.

The deuce though, she turns heads when she drives by. Big and imposing and well... always thirsty aswell. But honestly she usually sits in the barn at my dads place since well I have no use for her being a college student and all. It's saved my dads tractor countless times and its even pulled my car out of a ditch or too. But I will admit on the weekends I do get the pleasure of driving the monster around!

Would be stupid not to get some extremely expensive car, but I think that takes the soul out of the thread

For me it would be in two wheels, some very mint condition (discontinued 2007) Yamaha Virago XV 1100

Something along these lines



I have zero passion for cars, just a way to get from A to B

It's tempting to buy an AMG SLS or an Aventador, neither of those cars could possibly work for any situation I could encounter in my life. So given that last condition, the fact that the chosen vehicle can be the only one I operate for the rest of my life, it can't be anything other than a Range Rover Sport.
