Car / Boat Match

Hello All,
I'm curious. We read and write and talk a lot about the best boat for this and that, why we think it is better than another boat, why it will or won't work for the intended use. We get opinions about what is slow, what is fast, what has tankage, what leaks, what comes about.....

I would like to know if those of us with HunterBeneLinas or other clorox bottles have land vehicles that are similar. I would also like to know if those that sail boats that are intended to be circumnavigators and are more "stick built" are driving similar or dis-similar vehicles.

So here is the request/question:
Post your boat make model and year
Post your current (or most recent if you are out and about) land vehicle.

Nothing more needed from me, I just wonder if we have more matches in philosophy and style or mis-matches as it where.

Thanks Much!

Here is my current situation:

2007 Beneteau 49
2008 Chevrolet Silverado MAX (6.0 litre V8),
no i did not win the lotto, just work to much and sail too little right now, but I'm lovin' it!

Greg

5 m Bolger-designed runabout (built 2001).
Hyundai Elantra wagon (2000).
Both are relatively inexpensive, very versatile, cheap on gas, and the green one can pull the red & blue one....

I like strong and classic transportation that can take me anywhere safely.

Diesel power so that I can leave it for long periods and it will start right up.

At an age before black boxes and solid state magic ruled the world.
