    I rented an icebox white Country Sedan in '84 to move my girlfriend down from Reno to Las Vegas. It was cheaper as a round-trip rental, so I got it in Vegas, drove 450 miles to Reno, loaded up her stuff and drove 450 miles back. I expected to hate it. It was surprisingly okay. But then, a month before, I'd made the same trip with all my stuff in a Ryder rental truck with only an AM radio. So I may have been judging on a curve.

    "If you think you hate it now, wait until you drive it". I used to abhor station wagons, til I bought a 1991 Caprice wagon off my parent's last year, I think I am hooked. There is a Country Squire lingering on the Houston Craigslist for about $2k, hmm.
