    As a daily driver I have had a few GM products, but when it comes to muscle cars it is Mopar or no car!

    Well buddy. I'll have to disagree with you there. Buy American, the country
    you save maybe your own!

    Anyway; I like them all. Mopars more! I grew up in a GM family. They couldn't
    understand me converting to Mopar.
    My son in law(crustyz11) helped with getting around for the auction with
    Keith. He is a Chevy guy through and through. But he also likes them all.
    So what I'm getting to is relax and enjoy them all. As Rodney King once
    said; Can't we all just get along!

    Well Brian , it would definitely be a used Honda. we tried buying "American" once, a brand new Pontiac G6 , biggest piece of shit ive ever owned. its now right about at 45,000 miles, both headlight harnesses have melted , the steering column shaft has came apart , the exhaust manifold is cracked and its using oil. we are definitely keeping our american Team Chevrolet shop busy with that POS .my 40 year old duster is more reliable

    Let me just say first that i am a car guy first and foremost.
    I like 'em all, but i stick with Mopars because that is what i know more about and that's what i have parts for.
    My bucket list of cars include a '57 Chevy 2 door, a '69 Hemi Coronet, a '71 Demon, and my '74 Dart Sport.
    2 down and 2 to go.
    I like all cars old and new, they all have their good points and their bad points, what i don't like is people who think they are better than anyone else because of what they drive, and the pure ignorance that goes along with it.

    I have to admit that I am guilty of loving non Mopars....like my F-150, its a one of a kind...260xxx miles and had it over 6ft off the ground on occasion and no alignment issues...lol ...I did build the custom suspension myself.... I also like working on a few oldies that me and a few friends own, like a 67 mercury comet, a 72 lemans sport (GTO clone) and the wifes 2000 Cadillac Escalade...

    I've owned quite a few "Muscle Cars", "Pony cars", and "Muscle trucks". I was also fortunate enough to buy a number of them new, or nearly new. Let me tell you, all the domestic manufacturers were making some pretty stout rides.

    A few of the cars I purchased new: 1968 Hemi Roadrunner, 1970 Chevelle 454SS, 1978 440 Warlock, Mustang 351 Coupe, 67 Mustang 289 coupe. There were a couple of others, too.

    ...and, especially in stock form, no one was running away from anyone else.

    My sig, says it all. "I like all cars, I prefer MoPar".

    Why? More of a Toyota is built and assembled here than much of the Big 3. So just how American is the big 3 anymore?
    And Toyota will run circles around many so called "American Iron"
    How many Gm or Ford or Mopar products do you see hittin 200,000 miles without a heart transplant? And that just breakin it in
    And there is no Mopar it all built by Fiat and Mercedes been like that for long time with Mercedes

    You guys are too funny!

    I totally understand Mopar or No Car, because I'm married to one. BUT I (as does my husband) appreciate anybody's ride on which they've taken time, money and love to make it special or their own.

    We recently attended a local car show that had mostly lowered trucks and rice burners BUT they are as passionate about their rides as are Mopar owners are about theirs AND I totally respect that.

    I respect all pre72 cars even if they are something I would not ever want to own. If everyone wanted nothing but a Mopar the supply would be really short and most of us couldn't afford one, thank God for the other brands. If a nice 1969 Yenko Camaro or a 1969 Mustang Mach I came my way I would certianly want to own it.

    i actually had a 68 El Camino for a very short time that i got in a trade ....and i traded it off for a mopar .....although very cool and i maybe should have kept it .....i find its better for most ppl to specialize in one type of car if your going to do a lot with it.

    thats why i zeroed in on A-body ...especially darts

    i started with E-body (my first car) then moved to B-body and now i am the Dart Lady through and through..i have a lot of darts now and thats what i do

    My favorite car ever was my 65 Dart, the car I'm most proud of(because My Son and I built it from the ground up) is the car pictured below.I plan on my 64 Dart taking it's place here in the next couple years.My Wife just shakes her head at my obsession with cars.I appreciate any brand that is nice but prefer Mopar's.

    a friend of mine has a Nova, last I heard it was running 6.XX at 170- something, I believe.
    Still can't outrun it's own ugliness.

    well the bottom line and to answer the OP question .......no im not very mature at all ....in fact i am a supercharged little kid trapped in a grown up body........which is a huge advantage bcoz now im a little kid with a car LOL

    so no, dont expect a large degree of maturity from me....in fact i still sit upside down on the living room chair and play with Hotwheels on the kitchen floor and put cheetos in the back of the hotwheels trucks......whewww now thats out of the way .......


    now where were we: Oh yea talking about bad ass GM products BWAHAHAHHAHAHA :evil2:

    I had a 71 Chevelle for a number of years. I came back to Mopar because that's what I owned in high school. It was like returning to my roots. The Chevelle was fun, but full frame cars are much more difficult and expensive to restore. I'm getting too old to be yanking bodies off frames.
