Mine seems to say "please buy a 4x4. You're killing me."
Good lord man. It definitely wasn't your time.
I can't even tell what that was.
Mine all say i can go to my grave sure i never contributed to the pollution of our biosphere, never drove anything my entire life that i was not the engine of
Mine says: diversified interests on a budget...dents.
My truck says, " I'm glad hunting season is over...I got a bath".
2005 Dodge Powerwagon with antique Bethany Pickupper camper
Mine say, "I like things that work hard and last".
Never really thought about that. They (bikes) started out as speed & adrenaline for me, but now I'm getting older it's probably more about freedom.
What year model is the older green one with buckshots? Thought it was a jeep at first. I've always like the older early 70's model Ford Broncos and International scouts too.
It's a 1975 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ 40. It was my high school graduation, going to college present. It started life as a rag top. I've also added fuel injection.
I second that.
5-speed 6 cylinder? I'm sure you've had many offers people wanting to buy it.
It's a 4 speed, straight 6 cyl. Gets terrible gas milage, but I really only use it to run to the river to fly fish or to go camping in the Ozark National Forest. I have had some very good offers to buy it, but my youngest son has laid claim to it, so I'll never sell.
I love my car, it’s a 2017 Ford Focus hatchback. Amazing gas mileage and I have already decked out the trunk with my car kit. I am about to get a roof rack and a Thule box for it as well, gotta love road trips.
Same here with a Focus hatchback. You're right about the gas milage...it's great!! It was a difficult transition from driving pickups for 30yrs to a car, but when it was time for a new vehicle I couldn't afford a new truck and I just couldn't find a used that met my criteria in the short time I had to look...absolutely no regrets!!
So, what does this vehicle say about me??? I ain't walkin'!!
Looking good man! I also used to drive a truck for about 10 years (Ford Ranger). I loved it, but I wanted something more family friendly after my Ranger died on me. I went with the Focus and I haven't regretted it at all. MPG is great and it handles well. No, I'm not blazing any trails or off-roading but oh well lol. I'll post another picture once I get the the Thule box on it.
A Ranger for me too...17yrs over 200,000. And my first was a Toyota...12yrs over 300,000.
I was looking for a used Ranger in good condition with low miles. No such luck!! Seems like most of the pickups down here in Cracker country get used pretty hard. Ford's bringing the Ranger back sometime in 2018. No way I'll be able to afford a new one. I've got 60,000 on the Focus. Still runs and looks like new(pics were taken this morning). I'll probably be driving it for at least 5 more years.
Ninja 650 (2013)
Currently my only transportation. I would have probably gotten a cruiser, but I have wanted a Sportbike since my teen years. It was this or a dual sport and I figured I might as well get what has always appealed the most. I grew up watching Moto GP and visiting bike shops on the weekends.
This thing is fast enough and can really straighten out a corner. It makes me forget my troubles while I'm in the saddle and I literally go everywhere on it.
I took the rear pegs off so girls would quit asking for a ride. I know that sounds backwards but I'd rather not ride someone with no gear, at which point they should get their own bike or be my GF.
My next bike will probably be a dual sport, but it will be a while.
I need an early 2000's Tacoma for my second ride.
My car says I like bathing about as much as cats like bathing.
Our newest says a lot about us. We are old, fat, disabled folk. My son is not old and fat, but he is a Disabled Vet. So, we bought the van in this pic. It took a bit over a year from order to delivery of the finished rig. It is 4x4, diesel and has a wheelchair lift on the other side. Wonderful rig. The truck on the far side of it is our previous 'main' rig. The pic is the day we took delivery on the raw van, before conversion for the wheelchair. It has plenty of room to carry anything we might need on the road. It really needs a gun mount on the roof though. Grin...
Mine says, "You used to be cool and have beat-up old jeeps and trucks with scratched body panels, and lockers, and lifts. You used to go out and do cool off-road things. Now you're getting older and lazier and you need some of that sweet style and comfort, but you aren't quite willing to let go of some utility."
"Also you're a lazy ass who didn't want to change his own oil anymore so you bought a new Toyota with the free maintenance plan..." "sucker"
Mine says I'm having a late midlife.
Just kidding; it's one of my son's exotics. That's his thing. My truck is approaching 20-years and headed towards 350,000 miles.
My vehicle at the moment is a pair of beat up shoes. Steel toe work boots for offroading! Both say! Strong legs and not rich! LOL
My mid-90's toyota tercel says that I'm cheap, and see cars only as a means to get around
Not the best vehicle on dirt roads, I must say...I go there anyway, just very slowly.
This is not my truck but I appreciate this person's worldview.
"This truck is a testament to the poverty I endure for a job I enjoy."
Hope you don't mind walking the rest of the way.
My car says I like reliabilty, the ability to go almost anywhere, and enjoy a touch of luxury (2016 Subaru Crosstrek Limited with leather). Also says that snow means play time
Mine says "do you understand how contraceptives work?"
2010 Honda Odyssey
My 2000 Ranger extended cab went through a hail storm 2 summers ago and a kamikaze deer strike to the front driver's side fender last winter. It currently wears a hazy shadow of limestone dust from a wet packed crushed gravel road from a hunting trip in November. It has bark and wood chips in the bed from hauling several rick of wood over the past few weeks. What is says about me...? It says I don't have a car payment. It says I'm not out to impress anyone. It says I don't mind so much if you bump it with your shopping cart in your careless haste. It says my truck is a tool, not a status symbol.
Mine says, "Enjoying Life!"
While this one says, "Pondering life in my neighbor's V10 Lambo Gallardo Spyder."
And this one says, "Reality dude, you'll never own an Aventador." (Aka; Neighbor's broker's.)
Mine says I am a Johnny badass, macho he-man, stud muffin!
Ok...I am lying.
My truck actually says I like the outdoors and I am practical. It is a 2017 white Tacoma 4x4 SR5. Nothing special, but I really like this truck!
My son has been eyeing an Aventador and a Huracan (I think those are the models). He's getting a dose of reality though, having just shipped his Gallardo 400-miles to have it serviced (and he's fearless with a wrench). I think the wow-factor is cool, but I'm not that intrigued with these esoteric vehicles. Amazing technology for sure. You have some fine neighbors. A nice 3/4-ton 4x4 appeals to me more. His "family car" is a Ghibli and that's quasi-normal. I wouldn't cry if he gave that one to me.
My aging minivan says I’m a soccer mom from the wrong side of the tracks .
Great food for thought.
I have a 2001 heavy chevy hd... 496cu in with allison gearbox. Also a '32 franny b 2stroke with right hand jocky shift...
Never thought about what that says about me.
Plain white urban camo... dirty and always cluttered inside and out. Very capable. Goes anywhere I can get a winch point. Holds a few four ton. Tows anything. Only so many made... but looks common enough.
Full of tools and golfballs.
The scoot probably say I'm ridiculous and impractical. .. witha touch of... oobsolete.
Edit to add:
Running down the road at 8 miles a gallon...
06 Yamaha V Star classic .
1967 3/4 ton cheve.
Mine says I'm so sexy it hurts!
Mine says build it yourself...
Or break into my vehicle and search for goodies.
Mines says...”your legs will hurt from climbing in and out all weekend”....I am serious.
I had a Versys650 with a Leo Vince and a good tune on it. Man, I miss that bike. Love the 650 parallel twin. Handles great, light, and I was able to ride it within 90% of its limit. Was also a great commuter and tourer. Mine was even blue/black like yours.
I also have a Tacoma ahahaha.
My latest vehicle for racking up miles is a two seater. Every time I turn the key I think of mullets and Macgruber.
My wife can assure you, I could care less what others think, it's true. Every time I drive my car or ride my bike down a curvy back road I'm grinning from ear to hear. Who needs horsepower if you never use the brakes?
Mine says it get me from point A to point B and back cheaply.
My 1998 Toyota Tacoma with 85,000 miles says I'm old and don't drive much.
I take the path less traveled and I can't leave anything stock
Edit: and I like to see where I am going.
2012 Tundra and a 2010 Rav4, both paid for, no stickers. This should tell people that I value reliability over luxury.
Let me guess . You work at a salt mine . Maybe you haul salt for the county plow trucks .
Possibly your a commercial fisherman and you actually back your truck into the ocean to unload fish ?
I bought it from a guy who quite literally dragged it out of the scrap yard and fixed some major issues.
The brake lines we're cut so i had to drive it home with no brakes
the leaf spring bracket it back blew off and send the spring through the bed of the truck so i had someone weld it back on for me.
It had no oil at all when i got it and it took me a an hour to get it started.
The alignment was so bad the front tires we're totally bald on the inside and the tires we're tilted outwards..
the engine fan is held on with a bungee cord
Belt was squeaky as hell..
Tail lights, back up lights didn't work
no air conditioning and i couldn't roll down the passenger window..
Brake drums had huge chunks missing out of them and the brake pads we're non exist ant.
Don't worry it just needs some love that's all
I am a Power Ranger!
