Thats a nice ride you got there. Is it exclusively for Mrs. DB? Like, do you have your own ride?

Nice, but what kind of car is it. I'm not familiar with cars these days. Only bicycles! LOL

That's a Ford Edge right? One of them "crossovers" or something like that. I wouldn't mind gettin' a Ford Fusion (but my pockets and bank account won't let me). It's been a while since I warmed up to a Ford. I've always been a GM type of guy, but Ford is kickin' out some nice machines! One of these days I'll be able to get something else and part ways with my 2003 Buick Century.

My ride is now a 2004 Chevy Malibu (was her car)

I traded my old car (2000 Mercury Sable) in to the dealer for this 2010 Ford Edge.

That is a nice ride too Robert.  Almost bought one of those too.  We narrowed our search down to a Chevy Equniox, Ford Excape, Ford Edge, and Dodge Grand Caravan.... Thank goodness she wanted an Edge.... I hate Mini-Vans!

Nice car, DB. Bet it gets good mileage.

What kind of truck, reb? I drive a Dodge Ram Quad Cab with the hemi; gets terrible mileage but I love it!

If I had a choice, I'd have either a Dodge Dakota Crew Cab or a Chevy Colorado Crew cab.  I want a bed for hauling, but passanger space for the family... For now, I must live with this... Somewhat verstile, great for hauling gear to gigs...
