dude I've heard iraq vets say that the roads in the desert are better than the roads in Omaha. I always drive my truck if I'm not sure of the road conditions.

The E30 is what all actual driving enthusiasts are after. It's an unpretentious machine, quietly capable of spectacular feats of handling. It's light, simple design is rugged enough to run against $400k rally cars, but on the street it' communicative chassis delights even the most disinterested driver. It really is one of the world's ultimate driving machines

NOT a Wrongler... get an XJ its a box (yes ugly but durable) and if you think they drive bad stock remove the sway bars and lift it 4 or 5 inchest
and it will make up for it the first time you drive through 2 feet of snow

HUUUUUGGEEEEEEE outcry in NZ about that. hes been fired and cant work on TV again. i dont know why they didnt stop airing but they kept it rolling. you can see the other two presenters (also well know NZ newsreaders) are like wtf is he on crack. he did a lot of racist **** and got away with it, but that was the final straw
