I'd say a nice Cadillac Escalade.

I've got one, it's big, but not too absurdly big. Plus it has style.

the cost of gas could be a problem... but if you want to make a "statement" on the road, you can't beat it. they're great towing vehicles to boot.

of course, a Denali or Escalade would have a nicer interior. less plastic. more leather.

Well, considering the ridiculously low gas price in the USA, I can understand you want one. Still, I hope the US government finally gets some sense and starts caring about the environment and raises the price for gas.

Here's an interesting figure (from http://www.trouw.nl/rubriek/1123070046158.html all the rest is in Dutch, but the figure is in English):
Price in EUR per liter

Country City aug-05

Turkey Istanbul € 1,598
Netherlands Amsterdam € 1,409
Norway Oslo € 1,350
United Kingdom London € 1,314
France Paris € 1,250
Belgium Brussels € 1,242
Germany Frankfurt € 1,189
Denmark Copenhagen € 1,186
Portugal Lisbon € 1,184
Lebanon Beirut € 1,177
Japan Tokyo € 1,108
Spain Madrid € 1,045
Finland Helsinki € 1,029
Ireland Dublin € 1,029
Czech Republic Prague € 1,001
Romania Bucharest € 1,001
Switzerland Geneva € 0,965
Bulgaria Sofia € 0,855
Greece Athens € 0,829
Serbia Belgrade € 0,793
Cuba Havana € 0,788
Brazil Brasilia € 0,772
Canada Toronto € 0,645
Taiwan Taipei € 0,644
United States Los Angeles, CA € 0,622
Nicaragua Managua € 0,589
South Africa Johannesburg € 0,522
Russia Moscow € 0,505
Panama Panama City € 0,493
Puerto Rico San Juan € 0,422
China Beijing € 0,401
Syria Damascus € 0,378
Nigeria Lagos € 0,297
Kuwait Kuwait City € 0,185
Egypt Cairo € 0,179
Venezuela Caracas € 0,037

Although a doubling of the price would be maybe too much, I think that a 50% increase in price might be reasonable. If they do it by raising the tax on gas, then Bush immediately has a source to pay off the huge deficit. And spend money on environmental protection.

C ya!

Marty

P.S. I'm also looking at you, Canada.

Actually - the reason I posted this in FYM is because I thought it would spark the whole "gas guzzling machine born from war" type of reaction.

I'm seriously thinking about it. I would not buy it as my everyday car - only drive it occassionally. More of a hobby.

Are you looking to get the original Hummer or H2? I wouldn't drive an H2 because every rich snot nose soccer mom out there is driving one. Get the original that says "I'm a bad man and will run you off the road." Plus, you could get the optional gun turret at the top of it and shoot small animals.

Right - the original is about 100k, which is a little steep for me. But I hear ya!

I'm definitely thinking H2. I'm a big man and need a big machine. Lol.

i imagine the H3 will soon usurp this distinction from its 'mid' sized brother as it starts around $30 000 USD.

a friend of mine grabbed an early one here in canada. he likes it.
