Tow/daily driver: 4X4 Excursion PSD
Her's: BMW 7 series

'Cause we better at buying cars than selling 'em:
Old Tow/daily driver: 4X4 Suburban (and it becomes her's in the bad weather)
Old Her's: MBz 300e
So that's two of us, four cars, all licensed and insured and running.... HELP!!! How do we stop this madness?!!!

BTW, because her BMW broke a fan belt and left her stranded, it is no longer dependable. Therefore, we're soon to have a "NEW" hers. Damn frigin expensive fan belt!

Waterfowl, you did not ask for comments, but here goes: The domestic vechiles we've owned required significant mods to make them acceptable/safe; things the manufacturer should have done in the design, but elected not to. All of our German cars, and most of the Japanise cars/trucks, were great from the start. I personally think the big three owes us customers a better product. They have the ability to do it; wish they would.
