I ordered my 2001 Dodge 2500 4x4 quad cab Diesel with a 6 speed from the factory. Still have it, love that truck! Pulls everything I have put behind it. Only thing I have done to it, is put a gooseneck hitch in the bed and an exhaust brake. Oh and had the inside of the bed sprayed with bed liner. 170,000 on the clock.

Ha ha, want another '81 'Vette? I have one in my yard that I'm going to restore (one of these days....) :)
I have one in my garage for 20 years barely drive it a 100/miles a year...too lazy to sell it and probably worth less than the $8,000 I paid for it...on the plus side the classic insurances is only like a $160/year

This is the console from 2013 Dodge . . . easy bolt in (two holes to drill)
As you know, these 2nd Gens don't have a decent cup holder.
This console has usp port, 12v port, and has a compartment under the seat cushion for a stacker/ radio. Comes with wiring harness.
Apologies for the slight thread de-rail . . . .

I’m really jealous of some of the amazing cars people here have owned. For me none have been too historically significant or impressive - just useful, but in descending order:

1. TJ
2. 1998 Nissan Pathfinder
3. 2007 Honda Ridgeline (ugly, but just enough form and function)
4. 1969 Jeepster Commando

Bet most don't know what a '72 GMC Sprint even is without looking it up. Great list, by the way. I could easily live with any one of those!
heh heh yeah.

Buddyhad one. The weight distribution was sooo good and the brakes perfectly balanced too. He rear ended a car. We did back alley repair by putting on a clip from a Laguna S3.... it looked great !! Now to see who knows what a Laguna S3 was.

heres my Mom, on the honeymoon in a brand new one. ... might be a '47.
might be a Ford too

The honeymoon was Vancouver, LA, Miami, Washington, Ocean Falls. Those were the days.

Cool pic! Yep, it's a Ford, and it's actually a '46. That top trim piece just above the three stainless grill bars is cosmetically divided into sections (debossed valleys), which is a '46 thing. The '47 and '48 were smooth. However, if this is a Canadian Ford, then it could've been different. I'm not entirely sure. Awesome pic, nonetheless!

Don't ya love the way they dressed back then ?

Might have been a track width thing.

First car- 82 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme
Power everything, suade/velvet seats, diesel fuel only! What a pain it was in in 93 to find diesel fuel.

First TJ- 98 with 4” lift. Beat it to death with a full loan on it. All 12,000 dollars of it.

It was my 2015 BMW K1600GTL motorcycle.... which I sold to pay for a chunk of my Jeep...
Have owned several Harley Touring Bikes and wife and I test ready a 2015 GTL. OMG!!! Scary fast and luxurious. Would have bought one, but a rear tire with every oil change was undoable.
