I am going to embark on a 11+ hour (one way) trip to Oklahoma to pickup my dream car. What kind of dream car is it? I'm glad you asked, I am going to purchase a 1984 4 door Buick LeSabre limited, this is the 3rd one I will own. The other two were sold years ago. I am getting a great deal on this car $1900.00 and it only has 46k miles on it. It's from a dealership in Wagoner OK. Anyways, I hate driving, especially on a long road trip, but for this car I will make the Voyage.

How far have you driven to get something you wanted. Obviously this will be over the weekend so I can get back to work Monday.

My family and I drove up about 450 miles to Minneapolis and back on a last-minute trip to get a certain apartment for me. Ended up getting the place over a bunch of other people because I had the wisdom to put down a deposit before I left.

Interestingly enough, as I was signing all the paperwork, I learned that Matt Kalil had leased an apartment on the same floor I did about a week earlier. Maybe I'll get to meet the guy when I move up in August.

Grandkids LOL you have to have kids first. I just love the early 80's big body buicks. The 85 LeSabre was the last year for the RWD Lesabres. The 85's and 84's are almost exactly the same, but the 84's are much cheaper. They are getting ridiculous to try and find though. Not a sought after car, but it is a car that many people junked, so they are hard to find. This is the first nice one I have found in a year or so.

I rode a Greyhound bus for 12 hours down to Ft. Worth, from Wichita, to buy my car and drive it back. My wife and I, as my 2nd anniversary present, drove to St. Louis (again from Wichita), to pick up my motorcycle. Fun part was that it was in February and though it was supposed to be unseasonably warm, it had snowed 5 inches the day I got there. I rode the motorcycle all the way back home.

Well to address your first point, I have a 79 Cutlass with a 455 motor, that needs some easy work for sale. I'd make you a great deal if you want to get back into the Old Car Game!!

Secondly, I am a big man, currently I am about 330lbs, and I am 6'6. So the old big body cars are what I fit in the best and most comfortably. The first car I ever had was a 84 4 door LeSabre with a salvage title, I loved that car. At that time I wasn't close to the weight I am now, but my height was close, and I fit in that thing perfectly. The 84-85 LeSabres ride like lazy boys because they have that crushed velour interior, but they have a V8 that can scoot also. I will keep this car mostly original. I have no plans on putting rims or hydraulics or any of that non-sense. I will change the radio though.

Well, I live in a condo with a one car garage that barely holds my '06 Impala, so a '79 Cutlass isn't really an option for me. :D

And I get you on the second point. I have a friend who's about 6'3" 400, and he has a hell of a time finding a car to comfortably fit him. The old tanks certainly fit the bill. Although he picked up a new Volkswagen Passat last week that he fits in pretty well.

Yeah I don't know if this counts but I drove from Tulsa to Indianapolis to watch the Chiefs not get a first down until the 3rd quarter in a playoff game against the Colts. We drove out Friday night and headed back as soon as the game was over. Didn't get into Indy until about 3 am. Slept in a fleabag motel, woke up for the game, watched us get our fudge packed, and then headed on back.

I had hope too when Ty Law intercepted a Manning pass and ran it all the way back to the 1 yard line. Then we went 3 and out and Tynes donked the field goal. :huh:

Oh well. It was a pretty good time. Indy was an ok town. The opposing fans were really nice. The bars and shit downtown were LOADED with Chiefs fans. The part of the stadium we sat in was LOADED with Chiefs fans. This fat poor Indy fan was surrounded by us. We all were calling it Arrowhead East.

Years ago we bought an 86 Delta 88 Royale - loaded. It was one of the most comfortable cars I ever had and also had a great interior. We really liked it but had to get rid of it cause it kept having transmission problems. But still awesome car.

Many years ago my sister had a 71 Buick Riveria with the bubble back window which sort of reminded me of the old Corvettes. It was a huge boat but really a cool looking car......

There's a burger place somewhere in Connecticut I want to check out someday - saw it on Man v. Food. They steam the burgers and the cheese - looked awesome.

Of course, I'm not driving a thousand miles for a friggin cheeseburger, but the next time I'm in the area I'll definitely try to make time for a visit.

We're certainly not driving a thousand miles until we get our AMC Pacer fixed up, eh, pal? So many memories in that car...

I flew to Florida from KC to pick up a car and drive it back home. Used up the 1,500 mile warranty on the way home.

Longest I've ever driven for an object was about 45 minutes to pick up an SNES copy of Mario bros All Stars.

I rode a Greyhound bus for 12 hours down to Ft. Worth, from Wichita, to buy my car and drive it back. My wife and I, as my 2nd anniversary present, drove to St. Louis (again from Wichita), to pick up my motorcycle. Fun part was that it was in February and though it was supposed to be unseasonably warm, it had snowed 5 inches the day I got there. I rode the motorcycle all the way back home.

/I win.

How the hell did it take 12 hours to get from Ft Worth to Wichita? That's like a 5.5 hour drive.
