I drive a Ford Van, Dodge Status and love to drive my old 64 Ford Pick Up. I have often wondered what kind of vehicles our famous friends drive. I have seen pictures of Gregg gasing up his Tahoe, I have seen Derek jump in and out of a Volvo Station wagon. I wonder what Warren, Jaimoe, Butch, Marc, and Oteil drive???? What do you drive? Just curious........

I love, love love my Chrysler town & country minivan....I covet my nephews chrysler m300 though and I like the Sebring. There is something about the chrysler design that makes them attractive (to me anyway) - I've had my share of japanese/european cars but I love the comfort and luxury(not a sin!) and space that US cars afford me. Huge country, huge miles, huge comfort!

To be totally un PC and non-enviro concerned, I love my great American big gas guzzlers! I know that japanese cars are made in the US but I like to support American owned companies. I know, I'm an old school dinosaur.

Always wanted a GTO!

I switched to Toyota back in 2002 and I'll never buy anything else. I give their prouct, quality and service an A++.

However, if someone wants to throw a cherry red convertable corvette my way, I certainly wouldn't throw it back.....

2005 Jeep Cherokee (after totalling a 99 Durango year ago). I love it - rides very smoothly for an SUV and had some nice interior features (I purchased slightly used) like heated seats (nice when it's been sitting in -10 degree parking all day), 10CD changer (great for road trips), sunroof (can't help it - love the wind in my hair), good set of luggage racks (for extended camping trips it's nice to have extra space to pack gear). Living in the Midwest with heavy snow in the winters I like having 4 wheel drive. I spend time camping and backroad driving so the vehicle suits this part of my life, also.

Tami - beautiful car! Lucky your grandma kept that baby in such good condition!

My car has a fairly impressive film and television resume (better than mine!) - "she" (I named her Helen, after my grandma) has been in the following films:

The Aviator
Black Dahlia
Flags of Our Father

Helen can currently be seen on AMC's "Mad Men" - she has a recurring role!

There is a straight 8 engine - Dynaflow transmission and yes, Rainy, she weighs about 5500 pounds!

My wife drives a Toyota Prius and I drive a Honda Element. These vehicles are EXACTLY tailored to our needs: my wife's commute is long and right through downtown Atlanta. I travel with Bonobos Convergence and play many festivals - and having my Element be my transportation, my locker, and my lodging all in one is very useful.

As for the "buy American" argument - I'll counter this way. Both Honda and Toyota employ more Americans than any of the "big 3" automakers. Also, of the Americans employed by automakers, Ford, GM, and Chrysler have the lowest percentage of skilled labor / manufacturing, while having the highest percentage of managers / executives. So, if what you mean by "buy American" is "support American auto workers", you're doing more good buying a Toyota or Honda. If, however, you support relocating manufacturing jobs to Central America, furthering the economic divide, and supporting the status-quo in terms of the politics and implementation of labor unions, then by all means, buy American.

I just noticed the picture of the car. That is so cool the background being Black and White and the car in color.....

Not a Corvair, but a good guess, I actually forgot about this other rear engined machine, Unsafe at Any Speed!

Over the years, I have had around 35-36 different vehicles (not including motorcycles.) Out of those 35-36, only five have not been Chevrolets. Product loyalty, it's that way with most of my stuff....

Chevrolet cars and trucks
Harley-Davidson motorcycles
Fender bass guitars
