The ultimate family transport vehicles!

I’m going American with no supercar status on this one. Just production vehicles that can be picked up at any of the Jeep, Ford or Cadillac dealerships almost any day of the week.

Many men have to sacrifice their vehicles for something practical and safe once they have a child. I do understand the logic and fully support it. It would not be easy to load a stroller into the back of my mustang, much less a baby seat in the almost non-existent back seat. I, however, do not want to be castrated and made to drive a gutless minivan that takes 10 seconds to get to 60 miles per hour. There are plenty of alternatives that will get the job done while maintaining the fun of driving.

My three options are all American. The first one is a fire breathing monster that has been tamed for family life.

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

 

My second choice is for those of us who would like some luxury and do not want to drive a freaking SUV.

2011 Cadillac CTS-V

 

And last but definitely not least is for those of us that need to haul stuff now and then and could use the space a pickup truck provides.

Bushnell Backtrack GPS

Bushnell advertises this device with three easy steps: Mark it – Go anywhere – Get back. I have to say that it really is as easy to use as it sounds. It comes in handy both in urban environments such as parking lots, malls and parks, and outdoors. Sure, you can take a regular GPS with you, mark the position and go about your business, but this device makes it a lot easier, plus it’s smaller, the battery lasts longer and at only $60 for the original how can you go wrong?!?!

Your wife/girlfriend will never lose her car again!

The Safe House in Poland by KWK PROMES

The Safe House by KWK PROMES is located in a small village on the outskirts of Warsaw, Poland. Surrounding the area, many of the buildings are “Polish cubes” from the 60s and old wooden barns. The house was designed so that the homeowners never feel unsafe or exposed. The result is something of a modern fortress with lots of movable parts and secret openings, complete with a working drawbridge.
