Manual transmission Subaru Legacy Wagons. The best looking modern Subaru Wagon was only available for 1 year with the turbo engine and manual transmission, but sadly only 1670 were sold in that configuration. I want one, and dread the search to find it, but these cars look great lowered, so it will not be in vain. » 8/18/14 12:39pm 8/18/14 12:39pm

Ford Excursion. If the Suburbian wasn't big enough for you Ford had an answer. 193,000 of these 7000 lb beasts were sold between 1999 and 2005, all built in Kentucky. Ridiculous, no-compromises, and capable of crushing anything that opposed it (both curbs and lesser cars). » 5/26/14 1:10pm 5/26/14 1:10pm

Any cheap, reliable, manual transmission mid-90s small car. I've got a 1996 Corolla with 145k miles, it ain't much, but it's clean, surprisingly fun to drive, and dirt cheap to operate. Same could be said of Civics, Sentras, and Escorts of the same vintage. » 11/27/13 12:13pm 11/27/13 12:13pm

A walk-in/step van. It wouldn't be hard, the keys are often left in the ignition. But what the heck will you do once you steal it? To slow to run, too big to hide, and it'll take too long to use/sell what's inside. » 9/19/13 12:20pm 9/19/13 12:20pm

The B-36 Peacemaker must be close to the top, espescially for something that never dropped a bomb in anger. Wikipedia estimates the per-unit cost around $4.1 million in the 50s, about $1.5 billion for the 384 built. In 2013 dollars around $40 million each, $15 billion for all 384. » 7/05/13 11:49am 7/05/13 11:49am

Hate 'em all you want, but minivans are wonderful for a long road trip. Between my families 3 minivans ('93 Grand Voyager, '01 Grand Caravan, '07 Sienna) I've traveled many thousands of miles to far off places from our home in Minneapolis- Colorado, North Carolina twice, New England, St. Louis, the Badlands,… » 11/24/12 2:05pm 11/24/12 2:05pm

Are there any plans to increase the physical size of the magazine? I've subscribed for a few years, and one of my biggest disappointments is the notable shrinking of the magazine- comparing a 2007 issue to a 2012 the height's been reduced by 1/4 inch, and the width by 5/8ths of an inch. The size of R&T was one of the… » 11/07/12 11:39am 11/07/12 11:39am
