Not mine I hasten to add.
With that ground clearance,
it wouldn’t manage our unmade village tracks here, lol.
Nice to dream though, eh 🙂

I prefer proper two door Porsches. But they wouldn’t function well here with their low ground clearance. Range Rovers and Toyota Land Cruiser Prados are the aspirational cars here.
Here we have c. 1980’s Turkish built Renaults, with decent ground clearance, and built like small tanks 🙂
Had many big 4×4’s in the old life, but these cars handle more than anything I ever did in those!
I bet you’d like to try out that clearance!
As long as I don’t have to cough up for the result, yes 🙂
Lol – I do understand you.
I must confess that when I went shopping a couple of days ago….I arrived to the parkinglot in my old SAAB. I parked my car, sitting staring out the windscreen to gather the force to take the wallet and so on and on……when I looked at my right side -. and what did I see………..A beautiful black Ford Mustang….(that is my cardream).
I took a picture of it and was actually planning to put it on my blog . like you did. :-)- but it was too dark to make a really good picture.
One day I’m going to buy a Ford Mustang ( the only problem I see, except for paying it – is that my boys….are very much aware of that a Ford Mustang from the 60_s isn’t the most environment friendly vehicle in the world. The suggest me to by an hybrid. I’m still practising on the speech I will have when I’m standing beside my Ford Mustand – explain why I bought it.
Turning 50 this year…I understand why so many older men ( often men) drivesa really nice car ( they are not trying too play young or impress on ypunger women)……the still feel young inside, and just want to fulfill their own dream . but haven’t had money until now. So kudos to them for not letting their dream go!
Oh yes, a Mustang has always been a dream for me too. My cousin’s first husband in the states had a 1985 black Mustang – not a bad ride 🙂
Definite mid-life crisis toys indeed – and spot on, we just wanna have the toys we could never afford when we were younger. My problem is I’m far poorer now now than I was back then, lol
🙂 That is no problem. Just keep on making marmelade and save some of the money in a box. You still got time, and by the time your box is full of money – maybe the roads to your farm can handle a nice car 🙂
Nah why have a Porsche when you can have a Anadol!
I did – it died. I now have a Flash 🙂
