I was saying it's realistic. If I could only afford $10k for a one car that does everything, i could still pick up a car like my current Range Rover. And it does more than a station wagon, too.



I'd say thats practical AND realistic.

If I had to own only a single car it would have to be large enough to put the entire family in, rugged enough to get me where I want to go which sometimes requires me to travel old logging roads or back roads and could handle these wonderful chicago winters etc. It would also need to be extremely reliable and affordable. Only One truck comes to mind that fits that bill. 2011 4-Runner Trail Edition.

Of course !!! A $35 StealthRabbit that gets 50 mpg on free fryer grease (Gotta keep up my image)

I have built several homes using it as my 'work' truck (with roof rack and my SnowBear Trailer ). Granted I do use my Cummins Dodge 4x4 when the snow gets TOO DEEP and my Class 8 Mack, when the cargo requirements dictate.

But for 90% of the time it's the StealthRabbit (I can make a LOT of Rabbit trips for the cost of firing up. licensing, and insuring the big boys.

It can even be my home!! I've slept in it many times, (tho I have a 50 mpg Rabbit Pickup too, in case I need to sleep or haul a more than the HatchBack can digest) http://www.city-data.com/forum/membe...0-caddy-rf.jpg
