I live in Michigan. My summer ride is a Buick Grand National, and hopefully soon a Dyna-Glide. May daily driver for the past 11 years has been my '95 Eldorado. While this has been by far the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned, and shows no signs of letting me down, it has 216,000 miles on it, and I am not sure how much longer it will last. I replaced my Chevy K15 4x4 about a few yeasrs back with a TrailBlazer because I started a family. But I don't like taking that to work on bad snow days leaving my wife without it. I also don't want a big gas-guzzling truck again.
My requirements are: Easy on gas, tow small trailer on occasion, 4-wheel drive, hard-top for winter heat containment, and American made.
