I own and drive a Mercedes. German engineering to the max. When I noticed that all of the electrical wiring is run through conduit, that's QC to the max.
I own a pickum truck, America makes the best trucks from 1/2 ton pick-ups to big rigs. Been driving F-150's and F-250's for the past forty years. No complaints.
But my BMW X-5 is the ultimate. My second BMW I ever owned and nothing handles and performs like a BMW. Some times when out on the highway it feels like I'm flying a jet fighter. All right, I never flew a jet fighter but at night it almost feels like I'm flying a Cenna.
But in my lifetime my favorites was my first car, a 56 Chevy (paid $300) , my 64 VW bus and my 66 Pontiac GTO. Feel sorry for young people who will never know what a muscle car was all about.
Always wanted a Studebaker Avanti. It never happened.
