    You're going to do a 2,000 mile roadtrip and you're only allowed to pick a car from the year that you were born...
    Which will it be?

    2,000 miles in the bush, has to be something practical and this fellow will take a trailer and would be great for those lovely sunny Aussie days.

    The trailer will be filled with spare Kidney belts, hemorrhoid creme, liniment and foul weather gear. WHAT FUN :)

    I wouldn't have to dream up a car to take, I still have my '62 Chevy Nova400 in the garage.

    I used to jump in it and take road trips all the time, logging many miles on it just for the hell of it. Great little car.

    I still miss mine. My first car was a 61 Corvair and the 62 Nova was my second and most favorite car. However, I must admit to one thing about the Corvair. It could turn on a dime and return 9 and 1/2 cents worth of change.

    For the road trip, 1950 Cadillac Fleetwood. Lots of steel and chrome built like a tank.

    I've always wanted to get a '69 Corvair Monza Spider...factory IRS, turbo and close-ratio trans gears...and a damn good looking body...the best of the best.

    As for my Nova, it has a high-performance L-6, which will get me 0 to 60 in 4.3 seconds yet cruise me 850 miles on less than 24 gallons of gas...

    But since we have to pick a car from our birth year, I was lazy and picked what I already had in the garage :lol:
