VW rabbit-based pickup truck was unusual and kind of fun. I wanted a Brat big time back in High School.

You beat me to it -- I was gonna say the same thing about the VW Pickup -- a lot of the Diesel ones are still going...

I have always liked the looks of the classis Mini, but was under the impression they only got around 30 mpg. Did any of the classic Mini’s get better then 30 mpg?

Definitely. I don't think my buddy and I could fit in a Rabbit pickup, but the Rabbit itself is very nice imo. Decent side to side room, and more importantly, a nice angle for my knees. Most imports don't have enough space between the floor and seat imo.

VetteOwner- We were all saving it for you to say.

Funny you mention the VW Rabbit Truck. I've been watching one on eBay for a few days and it ends in a few hours. I'd be all over it sight unseen, but it's in CA. There is a gasoline version on eBay in PR (Puerto Rico) that apparently only has 6,000 original miles.

Rabbit diesels are cool too.

The old little Celicas.

British cars I tend to stay away from, though I love the styling of that Mini.

The LeCar rocks! My friend had one (out of 2 registered in SK) in real nice shape and sold it for a mere $1,500.

Is that a Geo Storm in the background of the Opel picture?

I noticed that too. I say yes (it even has the same wheels!) :

Attachment 352

I always liked the Storm "wagonette" :

Attachment 353

Which was kin to the 2nd gen Isuzu Impulse :

Attachment 354

I liked the nose of the Impulse more than the Storm, though.
