If you are a purist with a bucket full of cash. A BDA Mk1 Escort.

Xr4Ti, it is rwd and was made in Germany.

You should probably build a Justy or ranger.

Why does my brain instantly picture that spray panted on a panel van parked next to a school yard?


Yeah so the question is which van is appropriate...

While I like this one:

Too much glass on those ones(although duct tape and aluminum foil could fix that!)


This one's a correct panel van and a nice canvas I think:

Do you love junkyards and trucker hats? Volvo
Do you love eBay and Starbucks? BMW
Do you love long walks on the beach and swing sets? Subaru
Do you love money and your Xbox? None

ha!!! that is awesome.

i like junkyards, but hate trucker hats. every beardo weirdo in pdx wears trucker hats. they're unsexy fishnets for your head.

i won't even step in starbucks and don't use ebay since i got ripped off for an original pressing first magma record.

the beach is for surfing, not walking. and swings are still fun to jump off.

money is the bane of everything and microsoft can suck it.

i think i'm going volvo. a few local guys have offered up help and the dang things are everywhere. but no freaking trucker hats. i already have a beard, then i'd just be cliche.

You live in Portland. Yeah, Volvo for sure!
Patrick Darrow's car looks to be getting close. That's a pretty nicely done Volvo from pics I can see.

I wish Volvos were nearly as plentiful out here as they seem to be out there; might have ended up a Volvo perv instead of a wankel perv. Oh well!

It actually took me a bit to realize that I was watching a GT5 reply. Man technology is getting good.

Actually this is the best choice, probably. It has mid engine and long travel suspension at all corners and it has built in lifting hooks everywhere for easy servicing.
