eaders of this website will remember K-Cargate — which started when someone here compared driving a K-Car to purgatory, continued when the president of the Chrysler K-Car Club of America defended K-cardom in the comments, and wrapped up with an eloquent treatise on the Thin Line Between Hate and Meh by Kaibeezy. This was a long time ago, but I have to say that finally we’ve got a K-car that can redeem the brand and bring that feeling of Mehate to Melove.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again; if you need a minivan, get a limo. You get seats for 8 people and none of the mind numbing styling and van handling that you get with the typical vanilla domestic market minivan. Granted, an 80s Benz 250S is not a Lamborghini, but it is certainly more interesting to drive than a Toyota Sienna. Plus, this one has an 80s vintage cell phone mounted up front and a stereo mounted where the rear passengers can control the tunes. Stereo controls in the back wouldn’t be annoying with little kids at all. Find this 1983 Mercedes-Benz 250S Limousine offered for $12,500 in Petaluma, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
If you are in the market for an interesting greater-than-five-passenger vehicle, the pickins are slim. Sure, you could get any one of a million big ugly modern SUV things or a minivan, but that is not fun at all. What you really need to drive is something unique, something that’ll have the other parents in the soccer practice carpool jealous of your sweet ride. What you need is a limousine. A big, long wheelbase, 8 seat hunk of German iron. Find this 1983 Mercedes-Benz 250L offered for $12,500 in Petaluma, CA via craigslist. Tip from Matt V.
I have a small family. Well…not so small…5 of us in total if you include the wife, which means that we fill any common sedan very quickly — which leaves limited space for friends, pets, grandparents, hitchhikers, clowns, etc. Full sized vans are cool, minivans are uncool…but I’ve always thought that a limo might be […]
If you were a well compensated Japanese executive shopping for a properly boss ride in the late 1980s, you didn’t have many domestic cars to pick from. You could get something imported like a Rolls Royce or a Mercedes S-Class…but many Japanese businessmen preferred to keep it local, perhaps with good reason. Find this 1988 Toyota […]
Limousine ownership is a responsibility not to be taken lightly. Requests to be a wedding chauffeur or designated driver will soon fill your weekends. Unless, that is, you get a limo simply too mangy and scary for everyone but only your best, most deranged friends to ride in. Seating for up to 6 of your […]
I am afraid that DT’s logo guru Kaibeezy has been stricken with some kind of nasty Neptunian virus — which causes among other things, the desire to drive a giant Cadillac land frigate — or perhaps the answer is simpler, and is that you just don’t see Caddys on Neptune, and absence makes the heart […]
The ninth generation of Cadillac’s Fleetwood (1966-1970) was a monster of a sedan/limousine that shared common styling cues with the smaller Series 62 & De Ville, but was an entirely different breed of machine. Everything on the Fleetwood is larger than life and handles like a granite statue of an automobile — but if you […]
The list of vehicles with seating for 18 people that you’d ever want to own is limited. Used buses, trolleys, and airport shuttles jump to the top of this list, but heavy duty vehicles come with heavy duty repair costs and commercial registration complications. The next best thing is to pick up a long wheelbase […]
The DS420 Limousine was an over-sized 8 passenger Limousine hand-built on the Jaguar 420G platform by the Daimler Company Limited in Coventry, West Midlands, UK. It was a bargain priced competitor to the Rolls Royce Phantom VI and was built in limited quantity(less than 5,000 examples) starting in 1968 and ending in 1992. Find this […]
