Bad-ass — Fun to look at, fun to drive, loud, smelly and just plain cool. Everybody should have a junk beater vehicle to do stupid stuff in. It rattles on every bump darts from side to side when holding the steering wheel still and occ. the brakes stick. So...I don't drive it to work only for splashing through mud and snow and running down to the store for beer or cigarettes.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Indestructable

Cons: Gas guzzler.

1986 Chevrolet Suburban — i love my suburban, what ever you want it to do, it will do it. no problems, it is very hard on gas but it is fun to drive. it has decent pulling power, it came equpied with the 5.7L turbo hydromatic V8. it isint that rusty yet, i havent stuck ANY parts into it!!! it accelerates pretty fast if you kick it down. very durable, handels crappy roads well. i would recomend this tank to anyone who dosent want to be in the repair shop all the time.

Pros: tank, power, heavy, long life engine

Cons: nothing

Chevy Suburban, The Beast — The Beast! It went everywhere (except the time we plowed it into a sand dune island and had to dig it out with our hands) and fit just about everybody and their grandmother. Plus, a girl always looks good driving a lifted Chevy with a thumping base, right?

Pros: Huge, tough, lifted, my baby.

Cons: gas mileage.

Takes A Lickin' And Keeps On Tickin'. This Thing Has Been Totalled 5 Times!!! — This is my first and only car. The "Land Beast" as its known is a gas guzzlin people hauler. I've had 12 people in it at one time all comfortably seated. The previous owners totaled it 4 times collectively. After I got rear-ended in '07 I tacked another one to the list. This truck is stinkin amazing!

Pros: All American Chevy V8, 4 barrel Carb, Nice Paint, Good Stereo, Plenty of Room to Haul  Whatever I Please.

Cons: Gas Prices
