Pffft.

A real multi-tool addict would just ride his Charge to work everyday.

Or at the very least, buy some old POS vehicle so that he would have plenty of photo ops while doing repairs with his multitools.   ;)

Don't worry, I still have the old car.  I haven't found a sucker willing to buy it yet...hey that gives me an idea...

That's actually what I was planning to do...

...I have the perfect car for you then!  ...my old one.  :grin:

I'll give you $20 shipped...

What kind of car was it?

I'm actually in the market for a real vehicle, one that can be worked on with a multitool and is reliable as the day is long.  I'd love to find an old International Scout or an old CJ, but I'd even settle for square headlights.

What about one of the older Ford Broncos? They were pretty much bullet proof.

And I notice NutSAK doesn't his in his avatar any more....

It probably broke down and he's too ashamed to admit it! :P

Seriously I would happily take an old Bronco.  Heck, I'd even take an Explorer... those aren't too bad, and the resale on them is so low even I could afford one! :D

I just like the multitool- like appearance of the older Jeeps.  Plus they look good with rock rash, which is exactly what I am planning to do with it!

My old car is a 15+ year old Jeep Cherokee.  I love that car and it served me well for many years.

Well if it's dead it's not the Jeep's fault!  Shame on you!

The new car is a Toyota RAV4 V6 4X4 Limited.  The V6 was the top rated small SUV in Consumer Reports and the 4 cylinder has the second spot in the ranking.

Isn't a RAV 4 a cheap Asian knockoff of a Jeep?  :pok:

Heh!  My family has been a Jeep-only family for many years!

The husband of a friend trains Toyota technicians at a local technical college.  I had a bear with him a few nights ago and he told me I could have free work done on my car (just pay for parts) at the school--wish I had known that before I bought the $0 deductable 120K mi warranty!

You must be making a lot of money on advertisements and paid memberships if you think the RAV4 is cheap!  :P
