I haven't been around much the last couple of weeks as I've been a bit consumed researching buying a new van. Yes. I've been seeing other forums on the side.

I've decided on an Odyssey, and am psyched because it'll have a power moonroof, leather, heated seats, yadda, yadda, yadda. It'll be the nicest vehicle I've ever owned, and only the second new purchase. (I was looking for an '06 or '07, but the pricing offered on an '08 is phenomenal...$7k off sticker which for a Honda is amazing!).

Anyway, the reason for the Man Card turn-in? I was out photographing my current van this afternoon and couldn't help feeling bad that I was turning it in like an old unneeded Composite RCA cable. It was my first new car 12 years ago, never even gave one iota of trouble, and always just felt "right" in terms of layout and design. I'm gonna miss her....

Seriously. Where do I turn in the card?

Her last photo (sniff-sniff):

I just realized after that sentimental post that it might be considered funny that I did the photography at the edge of a cemetery!

I was able to barely hold onto my card when we bought our Odyssey eight years ago, simply because I drove up in my Acura and said the van was for the wife. \:\)
But seriously the Odyssey is probably the best and most reliable vehicle of the three we have now, or of any car we have ever owned. My wife plans on keeping it until the wheels fall off, and I don't see that happening for a very long time.

Define best....

Luckly I havent had to turn in my man card, And in the handbook I was given it is defined as the following.

Power
Sound
Looks
Intimidation factor
Gas mileage (lower the number = better... = power ;\) )
Offroadability
Sound of the horn

And to be even considered in this category it needs to be RWD, and have 8 or more cyl. \:\)

So far as I can tell the Odyssey... well..... Uh yeaaahhhh..... Its got none of that. :p

Whew! Thanks Rick! \:\)

Michael, I wasn't worried about losing my Man Card because I was buying a minivan. I've been driving one for 12 years... it's the only vehicle that's practical for the business.

I was worried that I'd lose it because I realized I have feelings for my current vehicle!!

Feelings are manly too, Mark. It'll find a good new home and make someone else happy.

You make it sound like the only good cars in my mind are american. Everybody knows that american cars are rubbish and can only go fast in a straight line and if you take turns with them your going to have a crash ;\)
