Volkswagen Polo, it's about 4 years old. It's a small car, but good enough for me. I don't care for cars much, and I don't want to spend too much money on a car.

Wagon-R
Its high so I fit in comfortably. Also compact. With the traffic around here, I am glad.

I am seriously contemplating switching to a hot air balloon instead of the car.

I have a Bajaj Pulsar bike.
Its more than 2 years old, and since i don't have a GF, no female has been my pillion. My bike feels insulted, i think.

I should have bought a Luna.

Seat Leon Dynamic Style.
Glad it runs on diesel fuel, because I rack up quite a few kilometers driving to work every day.
It's less than a year old and it's already seen over 55.000 kilometers.

Mercury Sable. I'm saving my money though, looking to get a Toyota Yaris for better gas mileage.

My bike is from Rocky Mountain Bicycles. The motor is me and as such doesn't have a brand name.

Great marketing! Covers up the fact that it's old and decrepit and doesn't work well in the rain.

For me: Lincoln LS V8. Wife has a VW Passat. Kid had a VW Jetta, then moved to NYC, and cars make zero sense there.

Prior cars: Lincoln Mark 8 LSC, Mustang GT Convertible, Triumph TR7, 1962 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible.
Assorted prior trucks: F150 pickup, E150 van, Chevy Suburban.

If you have to ask, you can't afford one. Google is your friend here, should be easy to find the MSRP. I'm sure there are five figures in the dollar price.

Its a very old joke. Related the the Bugatti story, someone wrote the factory and complained that his Bugatti was hard to start in the winter. The response was that if you could afford a Bugatti, you could afford a heated garage.

In more recent times, the high end BMW and Mercedes-Benz are known for very expensive repairs and service. Again the answer is that if you can afford to drive a top end BMW or MB, you have no room to complain about how expensive upkeep is.

A very nice bike for the money!

And after three more payments, it'll be all mine!

Do you mean it doesn't leak oil all the time? or shake parts off? I mean, how can you tell you are on a cruiser?

Amazing trivia fact: Most Harley dealers make more profit off of the clothing than they do off of bike sales.

LOL! I've owned three Harleys. That's why I now own a Yamaha.

Harley long ago became more of a boutique than a bike manufacturer. I mean, Harley cologne? Gimmee a break!

The only amazing part is that that's true even at the enormously inflated prices charged for the bikes.

My bicycle:

Actually it is my father bicycle. It doesn't has absorber, so you have to use in plain surfaces.
It's excellent for descent and also excellent for ascension if you wanna have strong legs, because it's really heavy.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
