Preppy Rides


What is the definition of a preppy vehicle?
To me it is a car or truck that IS classic, elegant, well made.
NOT showy, flashy, or ostentatious.


What is the illustration of a preppy vehicle?
Well, my old rides will do!
The last sweet Saab we owned, 1993


Our first Saab was a white 1988 900.
We. Loved. This. Car.

What do you nominate as a preppy ride?

You can't forget the beach wagon! They're always the ones on TV (haha!) that people leave at their summer houses and just remind me of martha's vineyard!

Classic: Volvo, BMW or Jeep Wagon (the kind with the fake wood paneling). Newer Classic: Volvo and maybe a Range Rover

The Saab is still my dream car to get. A dark green with a tan soft top. Oh I can dream. Otherwise, I would go with a VOLVO.

BMW... hands down!
When we were engaged Phil surprised me with a brand new Red 325... he had a Corvette (which I DO NOT LIKE)... times have certainly changed... A Saturn and Honda!

I covet an old Jeep Wagoneer with wood on the sides...seven passenger dream machine. There are a couple of kids at the high school who drive really, really old Toyota Landcruisers and all the kids love those. We have a ten year old LC and had no idea when we bought it we were entering into a 30 year relationship with a car! I have a BMW, the girls have VW's and J3 has a jeep.

I keep lusting after a neighbor's Mercedes wagon. So many choices, so little money....
