I just discovered this site and it's really blown me away. Great work to everyone who's contributed to this place! I'm just starting to browse and get a feel for it.
Now, I bet this has already been answered, but I'm posting anyway. Here's the deal, I currently go to college in Evanston, IL and I'm planning on a road-trip for next year from here to Berkeley, CA. It's kind of a calling for me as a college kid to do something of this nature with a few friends.
At any rate, what I need now is a car for this adventure. We're planning on getting one for the year for general use, but I also want to know what car would be good for general every day driving as well as long term cross-country driving. Keep in mind, that we're looking on getting a used car(college tuition being what it is, a new car just isn't in the works) possibly an old Volvo or Saab.
Any thoughts? Thanks much in advance!
