Nice car.... For a Generic Motors:) But I'll stick to my Ranger for the beater duty.

Thanks, It has been my daily driver since I bought it new in '95. Say what you will about GM, but this has been one of the most dependable vehicles I've owned.

p.s. It's great that I can post a pic of a GM on this site and not get bashed (knock on wood). It shows the class and caliber :smile: of those registered to this site.

My Bullitt is my beater. That is, while I park it somewhat carefully, I don't worry about it like I did my C5 (never got dinged or scratched). Just drive it and enjoy it.

We met a guy at IHOP on Christmas. He parked his beater out front, on the street, unlocked. He even let us open it up and look inside. His beater was also a Ford. An Aston Martin DB-7 Vantage convertible (420HP/400ft-lb V12, 0-60 in 5.2, 13.7 1/4 mile (heavy car)). Get one at your local Aston Martin dealer for around $150,000 and up.

It's all relative... :smile:

Here's my '94 Cougar V8 beater...



Well, that's how it looked 2 years ago. Add some rust spots, stolen center caps, an accident with a UPS truck, a few bumper kisses, a dumpster-bumper scrape, and 20K miles and you get the point...

Since I got #2294 six months ago (it's in storage now--WITHDRAWAL), the beater has only gained 1900 miles. Not bad for Chicago and considering i drive it to work every day (don't wanna street-park the Bullitt)...

BUL2294,

How's your Cougar in the Snow? I just put my Bullitt away and picked up a '97 Cougar V8. I like the car, but I got a feeling it not much better than the Mustang in the snow. Let me know. In the mean time I might have to buy some bags of sand for a little security.

In all honesty, it's not too bad in the snow, and I don't have the traction control option that was available. Once you figure the car out, it's actually quite fun in the snow. My previous car was a '91 Escort and it performed worse in the snow than the Cougar. You definitely need sand bags in the trunk. But given the fact that there hasn't been any real snow in Chicagoland yet, there's no rush to get them...

FYI--Just yesterday I picked up two 70-lb bags of tube sand at Menards for $2.60/bag (my brother stole the sand bags I had last year). Adding 140 lbs. of weight to my Cougar V8 has no noticeable effect on my gas mileage.
