I recently got a 1999 Chevy K1500 Suburban LS http://www.automobile-catalog.com/auta_details1.php and my insurance only went up about $30 (USD) per month from the 1988 Volvo I used to own (same insurance company).
Regarding Wiggo's comment below, I used to (years ago, in the 1980s) have a (US version) 1963 Falcon Futura wagon; that was the 1st time I ever changed out a clutch plate, pressure plate & throwout bearing. It was given to my ex and I by my brother-in-law after he got it from his stepdad; while his stepdad (my father-in-law) had it, it was in almost pristine condition for its age; by the time we got it, it looked its age: rusty, paint faded, headliner falling apart, etc.
This vehicle (my current one) is in MUCH better condition; it's got some minor issues, but fortunately nothing major that I have to deal with. I did recently change out the Idle Air Control, which had been 'throwing codes', but I guess I forgot to disconnect the battery while doing so, because it's (the engine & transmission) running a bit high on the idle on startup (starts to 2K RPM, then slowly drops down to about 800 RPM).

An atheist scientist came to God and said, "We've figured out how to make a man without you."

God said, "OK, let me see you do it."

So the atheist bent down to the ground and scooped up a handful.

But God stopped him and said, "Oh, no you don't. Get your own dirt!"

A husband and wife who work for the circus go to an adoption agency. Social workers there raise doubts about their suitability.

The couple produces photos of their 50-foot motor home, which is clean and well maintained and equipped with a beautiful nursery.

The social workers raise concerns about the education a child would receive while in the couple's care.

"We've arranged for a full-time tutor who will teach the child all the usual subjects along with French, Mandarin, and computer skills."

Then the social workers express concern about a child being raised in a circus environment.

"Our nanny is a certified expert in pediatric care, welfare, and diet."

The social workers are finally satisfied.

They ask, "What age child are you hoping to adopt?"

"It doesn't really matter, as long as the kid fits in the cannon."

There once was a religious young woman who went to Confession.

Upon entering the confessional, she said, 'Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.’

The priest said, 'Confess your sins and be forgiven.’

The young woman said, 'Last night my boyfriend made mad passionate love to me seven times.’

The priest thought long and hard and then said, 'Squeeze seven lemons into a glass and then drink the juice.’

The young woman asked, 'Will this cleanse me of my sins?’

The priest said, 'No, but it will wipe that smile off of your face.’

I have a midget friend.

He's epileptic and makes pizzas for a living.

I call him "Little Siezures".

From a very old and dear friend of mine (Brigitte from Hong Kong) comes the following...

An Irish gal of advanced age visited her physician to ask his advice on revivin’ her husband's libido.

"What about trying Viagra?" asked the doctor?

"Not a chance" she replied. "He won't even take an aspirin."

"Not a problem," said the doctor. "Give him an Irish Viagra.”

"What on Earth is Irish Viagra?" she asked.

"It's Viagra dissolved in his morning cup of coffee. He won't even taste it.

Let me know how it goes," he said.

She called the doctor the very next afternoon. "How did it go?" he asked.

"Oh doctor, it was terrible. Just horrid, I tell ya! I'm beside meself!"

"Oh, no! What in the world happened?"

"Well, I did the deed, Doctor, just as you advised. I put the Viagra in his morning coffee, and he drank it.

Well, you know, it took effect almost immediately, and he jumped straight up out of his chair with a smile on his face, a twinkle in his eye and his pants a-bulgin’. Then, with one fierce swoop of his arm, he sent the cups, saucers, and everything else that was on the table flyin’ across the room, ripped me clothes to tatters and passionately took me then and there, right on top of the table.

T’was a nightmare, I tell ya, an absolute nightmare!"

“Why so terrible?" asked the doctor. "Wasn't the sex good?"

It was the best sex I've had in me last 25 years, but sure as I'm sittin’ here, doctor, I'll never be able to show me face in Starbucks again!”
