    Gone But Wish I Could've Kept It Forever — I JUST TRADED THIS CAR IN AND DON'T OWN IT ANYMORE, but I wish I could have kept this car forever. I got it in high school, took it to college with me, drove it to my first job, drove to the hospital to have my baby in it. This car was a part of the family! However, nothing lasts forever and after 200,000 miles plus it was time for the old girl to go. We may have a funeral.

    Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

    Pros: great looking car!

    Cons: Just old and worn out
