new road trip vehicle?

Recommended Posts

Or you could buy a Japanese right-hand-drive Diesel 4x4 Delica StarWagon

 

What the F$%K is up with these things? Seemed like half the dirtbags in Tofino this summer were rolling in one. Is it like the ultimate badge of the Canadian Trustafarian?

4x4, diesel, VW van sized, good clearance, under $10G

what's not to like?

 

They are distinctly smaller than a Vanagon, I can see it working as a Fern camper but two of me might find it a wee bit cramped.

 

Under 10 grand though? There's a lot to like about that.

Except if you get one of the ones like Fern got where the engine explodes in flames while you are driving on the i-5 :grlaf:

 

is that feature optional or is it included in the base model? i do like explosions.

Saw one of these little gizmos drivin' around Snohomish today. It's actually smaller that my Chrysler T&C minivan that I have kitted out with a bed. Sure, more bells & whistles, but pretty tiny lookin'.

 

Cheers.

Horrendous blind spots

 

recently banned in quebec other provinces to follow suit shortly

 

ICBC just did a study and found that RHD vehicles get into more accidents than LHD...basically you cant see fark all when you pull out of the curb labe parking spot..

 

Insurance is about to go up for RHD vehicles and then an outright ban

 

Just get an old solid front axle truck throw boler on the rear,quickly notch out the wheel wells in the boler to except an old jeep axle and tire and roll down the street in your style!!

Tru Canadian Style!!

 

best thing is you can open the curtains up in the rear window and still use your rear view...plus its skinny enough you dont need extra side views...kitchen and the whole works..

Financially, Owners Raped by Detroit

 

Interesting, my Ford Escort served me well for 10+ years. Never had any problems outside of normal wear and tear (brake pads, car battery, tires, timing chain, etc).

 

You, and all the other libtards bashing on Ford, should love them and GM, Dru. They are UNION shops after all. You know, the workers came together there and fought for their benefits and retirement packages, conditions of work, work week, etc. And they produce the best quality product they can - much better than if they were not unionized. Right?

 

Or maybe supporting unions and bitching about capitalism is just a smokescreen for the chronically hypocritical (a.k.a. libtards).

Carhartts are union made, spendy and great.

Fords and GMs are union made, not so spendy, and suck.

A Ford beats a lesbaru any day of the week.

yeah...well, my one and only ford, was an AWD aerostar, bought new.

 

We put 4, FOUR, transfer cases in by the time we hit 50K miles. Of course the warranty was gone at 35, and ford *graciously* decided to pick up the parts and we picked up the labor. So, i asked the ford dealer, "Uhmmm is this unusual? I think this must be grossly underdesigned as i'm not pulling anything and just doing freeway miles mainly"

 

His response: "Never seen nuthin' like this" BULLFUCKINGSHIT!!! Turns out there was a class action lawsuit going on over this very issue...

 

I WILL NEVER BUY A FORD AGAIN!!! fuck those lying sacks of shit...

 

 

oh, and KKK, how's this for the word of the day? "PINTO"

 

its their management that's fucked...got nothing to do with their autoworker...

 

been quite happy with the wife's lesbaru...no issues at all...

Dude, WTF. A Ford lasts a couple years and less than 100,000 miles and is basically spare parts if you are lucky. A Subaru goes 200,000 miles no prob. and drives right past all the Fords that are broken down, slid in the ditch etc.

 

Japanese cars are made by the engineers, seems like N Am cars are made by a committee in the marketing dept. You want to see the same concept done right vs. fucked up compare the Aztek to the Element.
