If you stayed in the US, what would you drive? Bear in mind the price of fuel and the fact that you can buy a V8 Mustang for UK Focus money....

That V8 rumble would be great. A V8 Mustang for me please [:D]. Would probably go for a Jap rocket when I got bored of it as the tuning parts and fuel prices are so low.

Hired a few cars in the States. The best 2 I've had were a V8 Ford Expedition SUV (winter) and a V6 Chrysler Sebring convertible (summer). I would like to hire a V8 car next time round!

If I was living there I would definitly have something European as an everyday car!!

Pends where you live, ie climate, but I would hanker a great big "dually", the massive pick ups with twin rear wheels and a 6+ liter turbo D chuggin away!!! Long cab and still room for 4 dirtbikes in the back!! Luvvly!

On my last business trip to cally, i rented a Mustang to start with, which i gave back after 6 hrs as it sounded nice, but drove like a pig..Then i went for a litle s2000 which was quite nice, however whilst stopped at a dunkin doughnut joint, some imigrant in a delivery van decided to take the rear quarter panel out when he parked next to the car....So i then took charge of a Boxster s convertible, which was quite fun.....But when you're cruising the strip on a fri/sat night you need something litle and nippy, with looks aswell...[:D][:D][:D]

Think im going to try Viper in April....[:D][:D][:D] Cant wait....

I had a Chrysler PT Cruiser when I went to Florida last year it was quite good fun to drive, I do like a automatic when I am over there though. I know its lazy but it is good fun

It would definitely have to be an SUV like a GMC or Grand Cherokee, but if expense wasn't an issue, then a Chrysler Escalade.
