I too have back problems. I actually just found out that I have three fractured vertebrae’s from an old injury that never healed. And an uncomfortable seat in a vehicle can be down right painful on long road trips. That being said, out of every vehicle I’ve ever owned, rented, road in or sat in (and there’s been a bunch, including some six digit imports), the most comfortable seats my but’s ever sat in was Volvo. Those Swedes know how to make a comfortable seat. I have furniture that’s made in Sweden too (Ekorness) and man they are nice. Expensive, but very nice and they last for decades.

The second most comfortable car seat for me is my latest truck. Not as comfortable as Volvo, but the extra leg and head room make up for it. I’m not a huge guy, but not average either (been lifting weights for 25 years). Y'all with back problems owe it to yourself to sit in one of the Denali trimmed GMC’s. They have the “ultra soft” leather and quite comfortable with padding in all the right places. I'm loving mine!

Been driving a 1994 Nissan 4X4 since 1994. 200K+ miles. Spent most of it's time in the rust belt. It is the only vehicle I've purchased. My consumerism only extends to audio, travel, and gifts for my lady.

Spiff, I'd have to ask my dad but I'm just about positive that Buick station wagon of yours is the car I learned to drive on. We were stationed in Germany and my dad took me off base and on one of the back roads around the closest village.

Hey, I had a 1990 Dodge Daytona. I miss that car. It was fun to drive. I liked it mostly because there was a spot to rest your left foot during a long drive. I bet Spiff knows what I'm talking about. My son would be jealous if he knew you had a IROC Z.

KC Mike,

A buddy of mine had a 2.2 Turbo Omni GLH (GoesLikeHell). For a car in the 80's, it spanked pretty good.

I seem to be on a 4 year per car rotation...

It all started with:

1980 Chevy Citation (Was actually an awesome car, esp in the winter)
1989 Chevy Berreta GTU (Money pit, but fun to drive)
1997 Chevy Cavilier Z-24 (Killer gas milage and sorta fast, and the opposite of the Berreta, very reliable)
1999 Chrysler 300M (What can I say, it's my baby!)

Toss in a 1985 Chevy Celebrity Wagon that was a 2nd car during the Cavalier days. Got towed from my apt parking lot, never bothered to pick it up.

Wow, now that the ghetto-types are chiming in... I can reveal my tiny little list of cars...

1977 GMC Suburban (350 4BBL) - belonged to one of the drywallers, birds would (honestly!) fly up into it through the gaping holes in the rear wheel wells... lent it to my brother for a few months and he blew the transmission out of it. Paid - $200, sold parts off it, the rest to the wrecker for a total of $350.

1991 Pontiac Tempest (Beretta by any other name) - it's the S.O.'s but I'm on the ownership papers since I bought it for her. Paid - $3600.

1988 Pontiac 6000 - bought this off my dad this summer, was my grandfather's car and had 50,000 original KM (31,000 miles) and I couldn't stand seeing it sit idle in the garage.

How'd I get away with only 3 til now? Just got my license this summer. Been driving and riding without it until now. Since I wanted to insure the 6000 I had to get the license.

Bren R.
