    Meet Bertha. She's a 2008 Ford F250 SuperDuty. She was born with the V10 option. She loves towing boats and campers, and doesn't mind the occasional trip to Home Depot. She's never met a gas station she didn't want to visit. She'll be prettier once we get the shell off the back, but we need a few more hands on deck for that project.

    "Houdini" is my 2002 Ford Escape. He doesn't get out much - just the occasional trip to the grocery store or dog park. Miles driven since Jan 1, 2014 <300, but he starts and stops on command.

    If you can add a caption (just comment in the comment box under the image) stating the year, make and model, that would be fantastic! In addition to Edmunds' stock photos of various vehicles, it'd be nice to make these "real life" examples searchable.

    This is our 2010 Subaru Forester last September (2013) while on our transcontinental trip. I think this was in Saskatchewan, IIRC. We pulled off the freeway to marvel at a beautiful old concrete bridge (abandoned).

    1974 Ford Pinto Wagon. So, while we were in Oregon visiting (as part of our TC trip in Sept '13), I stopped in to see this old girl. Previously owned by my mother, she gave it to my brother and me in 1998. I worked on it for a week to bring it back to life, but cautioned my brother about any long trips with it until we had put 500-1000 miles on it just in case there was internal engine damage from it sitting for so long. He didn't listen, the car threw a rod about 250 miles from home, and I (silly me) drove halfway across the state to tow it home.

    I parked it where it sits (unheated storage), and that's the last I touched it so far because of my distant location. But, its future engine sits next to it. :)

    brian - first car is a 66 Ford Galaxie. Mine had a 390, which probably gave 10% more performance than a 289 while using 80% more fuel.

    xwesx - yeah, my tastes are pretty consistent. Latest car is a lease, and I tell myself I will look around at lease end - but one can probably guess what I'll wind up with :)

    Are you going to restore the Pinto? Part of me kind of likes the look of Pinto wagons. They might be a little more appreciated in the future. A labor of love, but not the worst car ever made. Was that one bought new by your mother?

    Kirstie...the RX8 pic was scanned into my Mac. The others were taken with an iPhone. Not sure if that matters, though. Probably some obscure glitch.

    LOL, Steve! We made a very conscious effort to not put anything on top this time. The tray results in no fuel economy penalty, but a box on top murders mileage. I think our final economy on that trip was around 28mpg... ? I know from experience that it would have been about 22-23 with something on top. That's a huge cost spread over 12.5K miles.

    "Restore" is a little strong, most likely. I'm planning to put a 302 V8 in it and heavily mod the rest of the drivetrain, so I'll probably do a light "resto-mod" on it, keeping most of the interior intact (unless vermin have gone through it in the sixteen years it has sat in that quonset hut). I'll definitely remove the "woody" look to it and repaint. Honestly, though, I haven't looked closely at it in over a decade (it was nearly pitch black in there when I took that photo, so I didn't really even get to look at it in person). It may be that this "rust-free" car is not so rust free any longer. I hope not, because it is relatively dry in there (and a dry climate in northeastern Oregon), but who knows?

    And, no, my mother bought it in 1988. All-in-all, it was one of the more practical vehicles she ever bought (as a mother with three children). But, even though it is a wagon, it is still a two-door. I can't think of a single car she ever owned while I was growing up that had more than two doors. It was a manual tranny when she bought it, but she had it swapped out to an automatic because her roommate hated manuals. I plan to swap it back. Overall, I want this car to be a true sleeper that I can enjoy taking on Sunday drives.
