2009 Lancer.  In the background is my wife's 2009 Galant.  At the time her cousin was the finance manager at a Mitsubishi dealership so we got a deal on buying both cars.

Also in the background is my father-in-law's GMC Sierra and my mother-in-law's beater Sentra.  :D  And South Mountain.  8)

I have never taken a picture of my car before.  It's never even occured to me.  But I drive an 06 Honda Civic, black.

Yes that part does really suck.  But I live on gravel roads, that are poorly maintained in the snow, rain etc... So they are so rough, that I need something that can travel through them.  I had a Windstar minivan before, and it never got stuck, but I hit some terrible holes and ripped the bumper off...  So I got a 4wd pick up, loved it, but it didn't hold enough kids (only my 2 and hubby, no room for extras) this was next.  I am glad I only work 3 miles from home  8)

That makes sense 2kidsami,
There was a time I lived in the mountains, so up over there, having a good car was quite essential if you wanted to move smooth and safe.
I found there plenty of tourists sleeping in the ditch for to have slipped on the track  ;)
Plus you have plenty of room at your back, I even brought wood to burn and warm home the cold winter days.




Nice car!

Well dear AL-B, it seems Japan lost the guns' war but won the cars' war  :)
By here Japanese cars is always one of the best choices.
I notice you Americans tend to smaller cars, what nowadays it makes quite sense.
Congratulations for your election  ;)

Well Henk, I hesitated between Mazda, Toyota ( as our friend AL-B advised me)  and Renault.
In the end I fell over the French one, and I'm glad on the choice, after two years of following all kind of tracks it never got me stuck.

No matter if the winter is harder.

No use blanking the plate number since this truck was junked. Her name was Tallulah and she was driven into the ground by 3 owners: a cattle rancher, my dad, and me. I don't own a car now, but loved Tallulah, had to junk her b/c her engine was almost dead and she had close to half a million miles on her body and frame.

Having said that, wished I owned a '71 Firebird or an early 70s Mustang at some point on my life.

When you had the '71 Firebird, was it a convertible? (Looks like you are standing inside the car)

My winter vehicle, and my newest vehicle.  1996 Jeep Cherokee, 4.0, 4x4, 5 speed stick.  It was the last year they made them simple to work on.  I also use this in the summer when I need to tow my trailer.  The chipped sidemarker and grille is from when I hit a deer a couple months ago.  Thankfully that's all it did.  The door is a little crooked because hinge failure is common on these so I welded it before it broke, but never got around to shimming the door perfectly straight.  But hey it gets me around nicely in the worst storms.

In about 1-2 months I should be able to take my pretty wagon out.  It's hibernating in the barn, I'm not letting it get driven until the snow is gone and the salt is washed off the roads.  But it's a real treat and a super exciting feeling when I do get to take it out.

I just took this pic.  We have lost a lot of snow but there's a lot more left, and besides winter is far from over.

Thanks. Yes those tires looked really good on it but I had to replace them by now (those are the pictures the dealer posted 3.5 years ago). I've no idea how the previous owner did that but even though they had plenty of tread left they were actually older than the car. :o


Do you know if the 36.2 mpg is different from Germany to USA?

We don't use miles per gallon over here (as we use the metric system which neither knows miles nor gallons). In Germany we measure fuel consumption in liters/100km. So my car consumes 6.5l / 100km and that can be converted to 36.2 mpg for the users of the imperial system.
