The Ten Most Miami Cars on the Road

In Miami, "transportation" means cars -- yours, a friend's, your parents', whomever's. We have no functional public transit system to speak of, and getting into a cab basically means paying an eccentric stranger a ridiculous amount of money to drive you three miles and nearly kill you 14 or 15 times along the way. And because everyone here is driving himself, with about 2.5 million people in Miami-Dade County, there are a lot of cars roaming around.

But they're not all special, unique snowflakes. There are ten types of car in Miami that you see more than anywhere else. Chances are you have the keys to one right now.

Here are the ten most Miami cars on the road.

10. Jeep Wrangler Sport
If people were allowed to drive on the sands of Miami Beach, the number of Wranglers in Miami would make a bit more sense. In spite of their outrageous fuel consumption and the tremendous redundancy of having a four-by-four vehicle that's basically gone unchanged since its use in World War II, these forerunners of the modern Hummer have been the everyman's means of feeling like he's on safari on Biscayne Boulevard.

9. Early to mid-'90s Cadillac Eldorado
These are the street-faring steel boats that simply refuse to die. They fit into the era that rests between Cadillac's past glory days and its slick, contemporary reinvention, a period that only the owners of these apparently eternal cars are convinced will someday be considered classic. But as easy as it is to slander them, you have to give credit where it's due. These Caddies were built to last, with the one pictured above pushing over 200,000 miles and still running strong, screaming belts and all. Plus, how can you deny the wonderfully sleazy charm of that candy-apple-red paint job under a creamy vinyl roof?

DOCTOR MALAIKA IS REAL!!! EVERY OTHER TESTIMONY OR STORY YOU READ HERE IS FAKE.
CONTACT odogwumalaika@gmail.com he is the sure solution to your problems.
I NEVER BELIEVED IN LOVE SPELLS UNTIL I MET THIS WORLD'S TOP SPELL CASTER.
HE IS REALLY POWERFUL AND CAN HELP CAST SPELLS TO BRING BACK ONE'S GONE,LOST,
MISBEHAVING LOVER AND RESTORE ONE'S WOMB OR SPELL FOR A GOOD JOB.
I'M NOW HAPPY & A LIVING TESTIMONY COS THE MAN I WANTED TO MARRY LEFT ME BECAUSE I LOST MY WOMB
AND MY LIFE WAS UPSIDE DOWN COS OUR RELATIONSHIP HAS BEEN ON FOR 2YEARS...
I REALLY LOVED HIM, BUT HIS MOTHER WAS AGAINST US AND HE HAD NO GOOD PAYING JOB.
SO WHEN I MET THIS SPELL CASTER WHICH A FRIEND REFFERED ME TO, I TOLD HIM WHAT HAPPENED AND EXPLAINED THE SITUATION OF THINGS TO HIM.
AT FIRST I WAS SKEPTICAL AND DOUBTFUL BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN SCAMMED, BUT I GAVE IT A LAST TRY.
AND IN 3 DAYS MY HUBBY CALLED ME APOLOGIZING THAT EVERYTHING HAD BEEN SETTLED WITH HIS MOM AND FAMILY.
I WAS VERY HAPPY BUT I LATER ASKED DR MALAIKA ABOUT MY WOMB AND HE TOLD ME NOT TO WORRY NO MORE.
HE GOT A NEW JOB SO WE SHOULD GET MARRIED. HERE I AM NOW WITH MY WOMB INTACT. I SAID I WONT TESTIFY UNTIL I GIVE BIRTH.
WELL WE ARE HAPPILY MARRIED NOW AND WE ARE EXPECTING OUR SECOND BABY. IN CASE ANYONE NEEDS THE SPELL CASTER FOR SOME HELP,
HIS EMAIL ADDRESS IS; odogwumalaika@gmail.com
