Ih Scout Ll Monster — Takes me anywhere from the beach to the rocks with its independent suspension. I love sharing it s abilities and pulling out people who get stuck. I can crawl then out in most cases without even going into4 wheel drive.

Pros: It's in awesome condition for a 79

Cons: Of course there is a Neverending list of things I want to do to it

Favorite Daily Driver I Ever Owned. Built Solid — I only had about $1500 in it and drove it more often than my new Cadillac. My favorite car I ever own by far.

Pros: Would wheel like crazy

Cons: I sold it
