I have never been a fan of Chevy's. I still have a spot in my heart for another Wrangler which is Chrysler. If I bought another pickup, after my last one. Prius or not I would choose a Toyota. Getting rid of it was bittersweet, that truck was bullet proof.
I am still a Ford man though when it comes to cars, another Focus down the road is an option since they are a much improved car.
If I had the cash and if it were my choice, my Focus would be my commuter car. And my dream car,the Mustang Shelby GT 500 would be in my driveway for some weekend fun!
As I cruise into the 50 club, I have gotten to a point with cars where they are just a means of transportation. As I said before I don't want to deal with big car loans. So if I needed a set of wheels, as long as the reliabilty and the maintenance was kept up.It would not matter the model, I would buy the car.
After all, my very first car was a 1970 mustard yellow Ford Maverick for $750.00 with 77,000 miles on the clock. :-D
