But I never had an antique. It looks great!
After buying a car for my then wife, I had nothing left to spend for myself. And thought I might as well take the opportunity to own something different, that I would never get to own again elsewhere. So I picked that up via classified ads from the estate of the original Polish owner (he had meticulous records, and averaged less than 10 miles a week for 25 years. Or as a local friend remarked 'He used it to go to church and back' hehehehe).

It is was an utter joy. Yes it was somewhat old and cranky, 17' long and a bit of a tank to drive, but I loved it. Bought and then later sold again for $2500.

My current ride sits in the barn under wraps for storage until I return and take out for her annual. She's a 23' long '91 Caddy de Elegance fully loaded & full leather with real wires all 'round. At the moment she's only got a wee bit over 16K miles on the clock and needless to say, doesn't have a mark on her.

Considering that SMS was already here when it was still under British rule, I wouldn't be surprised.

:P

It is a Honda Crossroad, the car in this picture is not mine, just the same model and colour. Not a 4 X 4.

That's exactly what comes to mind when you see one of them Honda's. :)

EV, I can't see the picture (seems like we ought to switch from imageshack to tinypic), but are you happy with the Honda Crossroad?
