    Again the question: what was ever "nice" about that car before the speed tape improvements?

    The "nice cars people have destroyed" thread has become the "shitty cars people made shittier" thread.

    Sad.

    I think on this one the tape might be considered an improvement, not destruction

    So I gotta ask what you drive?

    I drive a WRX and the vast majority of Mustang owners would likely consider them "Shitty cars." And vice-versa.

    I managed a convenience store back in the late 80s and had a regular customer with a lifted Chevy flatbed. He would climb up the LR tire tread, swing his legs up onto the flatbed, walk along the bed, and swing himself into the cab--in business casual dress. I never saw him on rainy days, though.

    As much as I like George Harrison's music I have my reservations about his taste in car customising.

    They made a RAM-based Ramcharger for the Mexican market, but it was only 2WD and was never sold in the US. Chrysler never made a full-sized 4 door SUV.

    I loved the original Ramchargers and full-size 2-door SUV's in general.

    Yeah. It wasn't terribly popular. But they're still out there.

    I forgot about the Aspen. I suspect most other people did as well.

    I guess the Jeep Commander might also fit the bill.

    I think most people didn't even know it existed. :lol3

    Yeah. I think the Commander could be classed as a full size. Barely.

    No, but I do ride a V-Strom. :evil

    Just making the point that Yuppy Puppies are not everyone's cup of tea.

    Years ago I was driving out of Boston in the rain when I came up upon a broken-down Honda Civic. It was slammed, giant fart can exhaust, and the driver's "lambo door" was stuck in the up position.

    This was every kind of cliche' rolled into one Honda! I stopped to take a picture. Then I saw the owner - who was distraught. It was clear he'd done a lot of the work himself and loved his car. I learned something from this.

    How about a Subaru Outback 2.5 - with completely stock drive train (ie no low range or locking diffs)?

    But it might was well be a plain vanilla station wagon or a minivan. Which was the OP's point.

    Dunno, I'm seeing a lift and all terrain tires.
    Except for the stickers, I'd drive it on every forestry road I could find.
