Right now, I've got a '99 Chevy S-10 extended cab.  It's 2 wheel drive, but has pretty much taken me anywhere I needed to go.  I've been thinking of trading it and getting a Chevy Colorado though! :mrgreen:  This one will also be extended cab also, but I'm about half tempted to get 4 WD with this one.  I'm planning on keeping it for quite a while, and there's no telling where I may end up during that time.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Here's my ride. It's served me well over the years. It's only got 240k miles. But they're all highway miles. Most of them driving to church on Sundays :wink:

I thought since your "enlightenment" from PETA, you were going to have to paint that old beater? ???

Now there's a question I've been tempted to ask.Somehow I figured BC for a Bowtie man.I can't go there.They don't like me.I drive them and things go wrong that shouldn't happen but once in the lifetime of the vehicle,get me out of it and someone else can drive it for 2 yrs and never turn a wrench.Got so bad my step-dad wouldn't even let me wash his.Shame,cuz I really like some of them and they seem to be the most available.
Don't have a hunting rig right now since my old dodge gave up the ghost(MOPAR=Mostly Old Parts And Rust)The wife and I are sharing her escort for now,but I'm eyeing up a 94 explorer 4wd.If that happens,the evil hoards will learn there's a new sheriff in town and he ain't interested in names,just headshots and body counts.

I have a big truck, a Toyota Tundra extended cab 4X4, 4 door, V8 with all the bells and whistles. It eats snow and mud.  I love my truck. My last truck was a Toyota T-100, V6, 4WD. I traded it when it reached 60,000 miles on it because I wanted MORE POWER!  For folks buying a truck, go ahead and get the 4WD, you will get your $ back on trade with another 4WD, when you trade. So, you pretty much only pay for 4WD on your first purchase and then trade 4WD for 4WD on your new one.
