The Ford Durango - The Mysterious Truck/Car That Barely Was

Durango.  The word brings to mind a large SUV packed with a family of 12, camping gear for six years and 25 hunting dogs that never fail to track your prey and retrieve your fresh kill - the ultimate tool for conquering all you survey.  These are the remnants of the guts and glory left behind by RAM when it split off to become its own brand.  In fact, it is the only vehicle left standing that represents the quintessential utilitarian side of Dodge.  So it may come as a surprise that the name Durango is not exclusively synonymous with Dodge.  In fact, before Durango was a Dodge, it was a Ford.

The Big Blue Boat!

It’s been a long time since the last post.  Things have just seemed really busy the last couple of months and I just haven’t been able to get around to writing.  I have been involved in some car stuff though... I just haven’t been able to write about it.

Unusual and Desirable for Cheap

So you're in the market for a car.  But not your daily driver; you want something fun.  Fun and inexpensive. There are lots of obvious choices out there: Mustangs, Miatas, Corvettes, M3's, etc., etc., etc.  But what about the cars that may not be on your radar?  Today, we are going to try to expand our horizons as we review a few of the cars less purchased.
