2010 Ford Raptor: Goodbye and Hello!

August 31, 2011


I'm sad to see our Raptor go. I miss having an SUV in the fleet. But at the same time it creates excitement as to what we'll get next. I've always been a fan of the Defender, but it doesn't look like a possibility.

I look at the site almost every day. It's basically car porn. It's filled with the bizarre and cool. I find reading the site is similar to being stuck in a multi-hour Wikipedia knowledge quest. By the time you're done, you have 30 tabs open and can't remember where you started. But recently I did see something that grabbed my attention...


A 1979 Jeep Cherokee Golden Eagle. I love the graphics, especially the eagle on the hood. It's currently listed on eBay, auction closing September 2nd. I've always dug the looks of these vehicles, but I've heard they're like bug zappers. Beautiful to look at, but if you get too close they'll burn you. Still, it is tempting to have a project 4x4. Maybe we should look at a classic K5 or similar vehicle?

If you could pull the purse strings, what beast would you summon?
