#48 of 57 why didn't I think of this before...

Any ex-cop car.

Great choice, the Chevy Nova. My dad bought it new in December of 1987 and it's still running with only 67k miles on it.

Yeah, that's a good choice, any ex-cop car. You'd have to go for the last-generation Chevy Caprices (1991-96). I've heard they're more reliable than the equivalent Crown Vics of that era. And besides, Caprices can be easily restored and parts are cheap and easy to find.
#51 of 57 Cop cars are too BIG to drive and park in NYC.....

unless you're a cop they can park anywhere.
#52 of 57 Well get a little cop car then

My personal recommendation would be a 1989 Gran Fury. Hey, I know where ya can get one...

My friend had one and the steering was awful. It took some serious muscle to turn the wheel when parking. I couldn't believe a car that small could have such a heavy feel. It felt like a Fleetwood with the power steering belt cut.
#54 of 57 It takes a little muscle to park one but

it develops your biceps! You'd be amazed at the spaces you can squeeze one into.

How about an armor-plated Isetta with full roll cage?
#56 of 57 LOL, perfect !

#57 of 57 yeah, avalanche...

...one of the many VWs I had didn't have power steering. It was fine most of the time, but took a bit of muscle while parking. I still think a GTI or Golf is an excellent city car anyway. I still miss my '89 Golf GL 5-speed, it was a fun little car (til it blew a head gasket).
