To old muscle!
1) It had to get 30+ MPG
2) my six-and-a-half-foot-tall husband had to be able to drive it comfortably (most vehicles now-days have this bulging console in the middle of the car that hurt his knee)
3) I had to be able to carry a tuba in the back (oldest plays the tuba, youngest plays the cello. The cargo requirements are quite demanding)
4)It had to not have a blind-spot you could hide a Hummer in.
There was ONE domestic brand vehicle that fit the bill:
A Pontiac Vibe.
We bought a Chevy Beretta the year before they discontinued that, bought a camero the year before they discontinued that...
I sense a trend.
On my grandfathers farm there are three pickups parked and stripped down to nothing and what's left is shot full of holes. One is a Studebaker, one is an IH, and one is a Jeep.
Word verification is "clarati". Hoping for some . . .
