I've owned far too many cars to remember but have owned some memorable cars.

My current cars are a Ford F-250, Subaru Outback, and an Audi R8 Coupe 5.2 FSI. The Audi is rarely driven and I usually get in trouble when I do drive it. I once had it up to 160 on 75 in Northern Michigan. It will go faster. The F-250 is my everyday car and I usually don't get a lot of use out of the bed. I'm thinking of replacing it with something more practical since I no longer have a boat to lug around. I thought about some sort of a Lexus hybrid but they're a bit mild mannered and boring. I like some of the Teslas. They are a lot more fun and have good range for all-electric vehicles.

Some of the best vehicles I've owned, in addition to the R8, is a Porsche 911 Turbo, BMW 2002, BMW Bavaria, Porshe 928 (horrible fuel economy but fun to drive), Mazda Miata, Honda S2000, a Ford Mustang 5.0 (not a GT) that was my first "muscle car" and was an absolute blast to drive. I bought it used as a graduation gift to myself. A Jeep CJ 5 that was fun but had to be parked on either a downhill or somewhere that I could push it out of. It rarely started with a key and I always had to be able to get it to coast to pop the clutch. And, one of my absolute favorites, a Volkswagen Westfalia camper that I wish I still owned. A lot of great and wild times in that - great memories going to Phish and Grateful Dead concerts as well as good times camping out west, Michigan, Red River Gorge, etc.

Some of the worst cars I've owned are a couple of VW Beetles that were my first cars. They had rusted out floors that would allow the passengers to get soaked when going through puddles. Additionally, the heat was negligible. An Oldsmobile Cutlass that would randomly quit running, a Honda Ridgeline that I owned before the F-250. A Ford Escort that caught on fire in my driveway.

I've owned a few Honda Civics and an Accord. Very reliable, albeit boring, cars.

If I don't get another Hyundai, a Honda will be my next car. I'm not sure I'll ever really be big into "flashy" cars, not that there's anything wrong with it.

Drove my dad's old Pontiac Grand Prix as a teenager briefly while it was on it's last leg. When that died I had a Ford Escort. Didn't enjoy that after getting a taste of the Grand Prix. Bought a used 08 Kia Optima around 2010 and that has been tremendously reliable since. I've had the itch for a new car for awhile, but I've been able to brush off that feeling which is definitely the smart move long-term. Been tempted by the Tesla Model S, Chrysler 300c and Lincoln MKZ/Lincoln Continental.

I'm growing more confident every day that if the Optima makes it through 2017, I'll have multiple vehicles with the full-autonomous capability when I began my next search.

You expect to have multiple choices of fully autonomous vehicles in 8 months?

I spared the Taurus, but you shouldn't have parked the others in front of me at the Sundance.

I think there were a lot of kids conceived hearing "Ghostbusters!"

If it's only Tesla, I guess that'll make my decision easier.

Lol, have not been in some time but an outdoor drive-in theater is nostalgic Midwestern.

Be a great new thread. Sundance. There is another in Liberty Center? One shut down off of 20 between Woodville and Fremont? I pass one on the turnpike near Lorain. Where else?

I'd like to own an older Jeep Wagoneer. There's a guy somewhere up in the NE that buys up old ones and totally redoes the engine and updates the interior to make it modern. But those are insanely expensive and would be 100% waste of money.

I have owned 18 cars and pickups in my life 7 new and 11 used, of the new, four were financed and three I paid cash. Two of the used were financed and the rest were cash. I have never leased a vehicle. I was going to buy a new pickup this year but my wife and I cannot agree on the purchase. Have the money saved in car savings to pay cash, still working to bring this about. Right now I own two cars a 2003 and a 2012. No pickup. Don't you think a pickup would be a nice addition?

Jeep is coming out with a truck once again.

I like the old "Woody" Cherokee's (that were Suburban big).

Sounds like you need to rework the ROI to convince the boss.

I'm not referring to cars that are only autonomous, when I say "fully autonomous" I mean they can enter driverless mode at all times if desired. For cars that can do both, the states aren't going to stop the sale of cars with the necessary hardware. In fact, I think Musk has stated every car Tesla is selling already has the necessary hardware to go driverless (think computer, sensors, etc) but the software piece is not enabled in a lot of those vehicles.

I don't think it'll be legal to enter "autonomous" mode in a lot of places, but I don't think they are going to be able to stop it.
People download illegal software and break laws on the road every second of every day.
This won't be any different.

If you buy a car with a manual transmission and install an automatic transmission, is that jailbreaking it?

Manual transmissions are legal. Are you planning to jailbreak a Tesla to run it illegally as fully autonomous?

Unless you're drag racing it, that means you have a vagina.

Car lovers want to drive cars, not be driven by them. Give me a bare boned, cozy winged, window cranked, stick shifting vehicle any day. I am the best onboard computer a car can have.

Although a 63 Austen-Healy is my dream hobby car, I would love to have a 1964 I-H Scout as a daily driver. I have always been kind of an iconoclast when it has come to cars and I always will be. No sleek, jellybean, self driving monstrosity for me.

Amen to that! New cars have zero personality. And whoever did away with cozy wings needs beaten. Severely.

Paint still looks new and everything works as it should with just normal maintenance. Probably the people you talked to were just idiots or embarrassed about driving girl trucks.

If I didn't hate you so much I just might like you. Those first 7-8 cars are badazz. That 68' GTO is one of my dream cars.
