    What car would you drive if you had to pick one from the year you were born?

    I was born in 1977, which was a bad year for cars. Oil crises and new safety regulations were strangling auto makers' designs. However, there were some gems. A lot of guys might pick a Porsche 911 or a Corvette, but 2 seaters have never been my speed. Not to mention, my 6'6" frame doesn't fit most of these short-people-only designs.

    I would go with the 1977 Toyota Land Cruiser.

    Man, I ALWAYS wanted a '57 Chevy, but for this thread...I was born in '66 so I'd probably go with a Camero.



    Though I'm enjoying my current ride.

    Dude, you were born in 1977 and you didn't go with the Trans Am?



    Because that would be my choice.

    I have one that looks almost exactly like that! Except mine's the Pentastar. Loving the hell out of it.
