    Never a huge fan on stingrays, some are just wicked though. The 1965 body style is my fav.

    Looks absolutely fabulous.
    Not in the same league I know but one of the nicest 4WD I've driven was the New model Ford Explorer 2006 and 7.
    It was "right" in every respect even my diminutive Annie at 5ft 2 loved driving them. We had them on consecutive years both being company cars.

    Hey Baz I still have my 2000 Explorer. 265 000 kms on her and all I have had to do, other than regular maintenance (including brakes and tires), was replace her alternator and have the rad steam cleaned. I buried her in some pretty bad muskeg once and well she needed a deep cleaning. Man was it a fun ride though. She got out and kept running but had a nasty case of the muskeg cold LOL. I still prefer driving her in many ways over my 2016 Subaru. I can sure see out of her well and hey, especially here in Canadian winters and obv 4x4'ing, I can go almost anywhere with her.
