off the wall question...
For those that have seen 50 First Dates, what type of car is that Drew Barrymore is driving? I have a friend that wants one and I, for the life of me, cannot remember what it was! It looks like an old army jeep or something, possibly a VW.

can you possibly give me a time frame for its release, or a model?

To have played and laughed with enthusiasm
and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.

ok the old fart will kick in...yes it was called THE THING it was marketed as a vehicle you got dis-assemble and reassemble however you wanted to personalize it, kind of a hippy thing. You used to see them driving around with no doors or other body parts on them. They didn't last too long. grin

lol, I remember my dad talking about those one day.
Also, isnt GM developing a new platform that is sorta like the thing? I believe I heard that it will let you greatly personalise the look of each car (swap in/out the quarter panels, body kits, etc) for a non outragious price.

Wow what a great idea for GM to do. The first thing I would ditch is that FUGLY Avalanche looking front end they put on every vehicle except the vette. I used to be pure GM until I a) got screwed on a warranty issue, & b) they started getting their styling cues from a big ugly POS. (imo).

I think the vette and the Escalade are the only GM vehicles I really like. The vette is so powerfull, plus its not a bad looking car.
