Nice cars, B&MB. I'd never heard of a Moke before.
I'd love to have a 1940's pick up truck.

I have a Ford Escape (love it!). I don't think I could drive one of those small cars. How would I cart all of my scrap stuff around?

STOP going on about how cheap your gas is We pay over £1 a litre - over £4 a gallon. With $2 to the £ you can see why I complain

We need to alter the moke to make it a 6 passenger, but I'm so short I can move the seats all the way up in rows 1 and 2 and make a 3rd row. Only moke SUV out there! LOL

but your country is tons smaller than ours and if you live near the city you at least have mass transportation. Not us! The train station is 30 minutes from my house, it takes 2 1/2 by train to New York City but also takes 2 1/2 hours by car. Now if there is a car accident or a suicide by train then hours go by before you move again.

What's a train station? LOL I think we have one downtown..but around here.. you either drive or fly... I can't remember the last time I saw a passenger train around my neck of the woods!

amtrak.....not really a cool passenger train or anything. The only reason the train still stops there is because it's on the 95 corridor. The next stop is Providence.

I went to DC on vacation a couple of years ago. I LOVED that I didn't need to rent a car. It was wonderful.

You can't survive here without a car... Then again, where I grew up didn't have decent public transportation either (SE MA - to get to the T you have to drive to Braintree, the closest station, which is 1/2 hour away. But it's the best way to get into a Sox game!)

I know, Mazda! I was going to make that comment when I posted about our gas prices, but didn't. BUT, I drive at least 1000 miles a week just for work appointments, and then another at least 300 to 400 miles a week for other things like rehearsals! Everything is so spread out. We have commuter service all over the Chicago area, but I'm about a half hour from the closest Metra pick-up (soon to be in my area in a few years). We also have some of the worst rush hour traffic which eats gas. I still love the traveling more than anything about my job.

Yeah! YM.. your rush hour.. I'm in the floor board of the car! They scare me to death! I drove through rush hour in St. Louis when I was 20, went to pick up a friend's mom for her wedding (drove to nowhere KS and back to Indiana in 20 hours!) well, I got my first lesson in being a defensive driver and learning to cuss and drive at the same time! Got pretty good at it by the time that rush hour was over and we were thru St. Louis!

LOL!!! That was a training session for Chicagoland....which is where I'm off to in a few minutes for a rehearsal. It's mainly starting and stopping, but once you start up, you better high-tail it at the same rate as the other traffic!

I can't understand about the car dealers not wanting to deal with a woman. What's up with that! I think I read that almost 50% of car purchases are made by women, so why wouldn't you want to deal with them. I walked out of a few dealerships because they were condecending to me. When I actually bought I brought my dad, who used to be a car salesman back in the day, just to make sure I wasn't getting taken on anything but he basically sat back and let me do it all.

What's public transportation?! Not around here! I live in a town so small we don't have a stoplight. People joke they know when they are getting close to my area when they get stuck behind a tractor or a buggy. I love traveling places where I can use public transportation. We had so much fun riding the subway in Manhattan.
