Dream Car

No Mercedes or BMW for me. My dream car is a 1991 Jeep Grand Wagoneer, fully equiped with the wood on the side. That is the year Chrysler quit making these monstrosities. I have wanted one since 1989, when I purchased my first bare bones Jeep. I remember sitting in the showroom eyeing one up thinking it was the coolest vehicle ever. I have bought a few more cars since then, but every time I see one of these old tanks on the road, I think about sitting in the dealership that day drooling over it. I bought myself this ornament a few years back thinking I might as well put one on the tree as there was no chance there would ever be one under the tree. Funny thing is, I now have three of these ornaments as two friends bought me the same one as they knew that I liked them so much. What's your dream car?

Great shot and another great story. I don't think I have a dream car - I think I have a car out of necessity not desire. I did not even have a drivers licence til I was 20.

Great way to commemorate! Love the glitter on the car too. No favorite car for me, although when my current car goes (it's on year 14! now) I may need to look for a way to commemorate it ...

Wonderful story! No real dream car for me, though many that I like the looks of!

@kimshots Thank you! I would prefer to take a train than drive but unfortunately, there are none this far north. Got spoiled living in Chicago where I could read 2 hours a day on the train.

@archaeofrog Thank you! It is weird how we get attached to our cars, too. I felt guilty trading my last one in.

@lynnb Thank you! With the crappy weather here, you just about need something with 4WD.

@amyvanross I was just telling Brad how I now have some material to take pix of, but it will also show just how much junk I have accumulated!

Will your dream Wagoneer be glitterized? My dream car would be a pimped out golf cart that I could drive to the beach. It would have big tires and a roof rack for the chairs and boogie boards/surf boards. :-)

@btorrey That sounds like one sweet ride to the beach! That would also be a great idea for an MTV Show - Pimp my golf cart! Yes, glitter would be a nice touch on my Wagoneer. :-)
