    my fav fishing vehicle probably would be flydreamins 2002 eclipse thats all fixed up.. thought the wrong kind of fixed up for fishing. rolled in a 74 landcrusier for a while, and that did wonders, or any smaller toyota pickup ( T100 or tacoma, or standard pickup) so whatever. i drive a POS black saturn when im fishing alone, im still waiting to get it stuck for good.. excuse for something with 4x4

    and ive is right, if your cat converter is f***ed, your milage goes to hell. i can attest to that

    better not get too comfortable there Jim....they stole my 88 subaru a few weeks back....and it was not nearly as purty as yours ;)

    That van, in my opinion, is nasty ugly!!! I would have to say subaru's all the way :thumb

    Those dodges I believe are made by Freightliner.

    I think they are pretty cool, especially once they get the Westfalia conversion going. They have been in Europe for years as ambulances and FedEx,UPS cars.

    I know mine for sure, Its my 84 jeep grand wagoneer.

    tough, nearly unstoppable, comfortable, tons of room and at least in my case totally reliable. :thumb:

    yeah the gas mileage is a bummer, but hey.......

    I'll take a maximog please.


    Read the specifications page if you have a 1/2 hour. Some serious engineering went into that vehicle.

    chris - you win! the only thing is that must get gas yardage rather than milage!

    Nope, working from home, and the GS needs tranny work. Popping that front up too much over the last couple years did it in. Toying with the idea of getting the new GS1200 Adventure, but it's a lot of scratch.

    Now I know this is a little unorthodox, but for solo warm weather trips up to vermont (where noones gonna mess with your sh*t), nothin' beats it. Carry a day pack or throw some bungees on the rack, and you've got everything you need for a few days. And the 50 mpg aint too bad either. Oh yeah, and this thing goes anywhere...
