Hello all! This is my first post here, so please forgive me if I posted this in the wrong place. I figured this would be the best forum to use to pick everyones brain in terms of which is the best vehicle for my road trip from LA to Miami in early November. My itinerary is as follows: Los Angeles-Las Vegas-Albuquerque-Dallas-Austin-New Orleans-Tampa-Miami
It will be me and a few buddies convoying it the whole way and picking up a friend or two along the way. I am planning to return around the middle of December back to Los Angeles and my question is this, what car would be best for that length of road trip? We are planing on taking about 7 days to get to Miami and will be staying with primarily friends and family along the way with the occasional hotel/motel thrown in for good measure. I am looking at buying either a 1997 Toyota Land Cruiser or a 1992 Cadillac Brougham. I know the LC will cost twice as much in fuel as the Caddy but I can haul a bit more stuff in it and its a tank. The Caddy though is a pretty sweet ride and like driving your living room couch which is awesome for a road trip and fuel wise is 1/2 the cost of the LC.
Give the choice, which would you choose and why?
Thanks again RoadTrip America readers! I will keep you all posted on my purchase and right a trip report when the day comes to leave.
