The RR is the best looking out of all of them but you got the wrong wheels TC.

looks like there's a new RR out, definitely doesn't have the appeal of the BMW-developed one:

It's the front end. Sort of generic now.

Interior is nice and minimalist-ish, but the exterior leaves much to be desired.

The vents in the bumper are stupid, the wraparound lights are stupid, this looks more like a rejected prototype than a real production vehicle. The 2002 RR and the original series 1 RR were so much better in design.

It copies a bit much from the Ford Explorer.

The Grand National is trashy, but awesome. However, you could also get a souped up Buick Regal from same era and trash it and not even worry about it. But still, Grand National prob a good car for a daily driver if you don't mind cloth seats and RWD works for your conditions. Should maintain some semblance of value with a strong following / group of collectors.

Hell yea, man icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Trashy? Perhaps. Undeniably awesome? Definitely. They're really cool cars, especially when you put them in the context of their roots. This little turbo v6 rolling up to the drag strip and hanging with the 500+ cube big blocks. Total game changer, iconic piece of automotive history.

My immediate future automotive plans are to sell bronco, acquire typhoon. Buy a bike (not sure what yet, will make that decision when the time is right). Buy a Grand National. Will look good next to the z06, which isn't going anywhere any time soon! Can't wait nod[1].gif

I've done vintage while living in Chicago many times. My old Rolls-Royce was always parked on the street in Wrigleyville and was fine (aside from getting egged by some kids one Halloween), as was my collection of 80s Porsches (911, 944, and 928S). It takes some finagling, but it's do-able. Now that I've got off-street parking it would be a piece of cake - ironically, I've run modern metal since I got my cars off the street. smile.gif

My "dream garage" changes a lot, but I tend to orbit around the same concept: two cars, a sporty daily and a convertible of some sort. It started when I had my E46 3-series and Z4 roadster, and I was planning to go up to an E46 M3 and Z4 M Roadster until I was lured by the M Coupe. Now I vacillate between a 914 and 2002, E30 325iC and 944S2 (not a fan of the 944 cab), or E36 M3 and 986S.
