Other cars you own, or drive?

Recommended Posts

Hey all!

Just curious, what other cars are you all driving or own? Daily driver, etc. I have found that car enthusiasts rarely drive "boring, or non-inspiring" cars, so I would like to know what else you all drive.

I drive a 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 w/ Cummins turbo diesel. (I know, kinda boring, but I need it for work and to pull our travel trailer). My wifes daily driver is a 2005 Subaru Legacy GT Ltd. wagon. Now that, my friends is one helluva car! I do not want to start anything with all of the Datsun purists out there, but I have been LOVING the Subie since we got it in May!!!

So whattya think, this might be a fun thread! Oh yeah, pics are always good, too!!!

Regards,

Astrohog

My daily driver is a 2000 Civic SiR (Same as Si US model. Except the Canadian model has ABS). It is almost as much fun to drive a my 280 was. I have the usual collection of boring family vehicles. What I really like to drive is my 1980 Glastron Carlson CVX 20 jet boat.

Well, you can see what else I drive by my signature but I'll give a little description of each anyways.

'02 Ford Focus ZX3 - This is an awsome little car, I havent had it too long yet but it rides good, its quiet and its fairly sporty handling wise although its far from being quick. And best of all it consistently gets 34-36 mpg. Good Daily Driver Car

'80 Honda CB750 Custom - This is my second Honda motorcycle and I definetly impressed with it. It has an air cooled I-4 motor with almost 30K miles and I've had no major problems with yet (knock on wood LOL), I bought it 15K on it. I wouldn't say that I beat on it but does see alot of revs when I go backroad riding.

'97 Arctic Cat 580EXT - This is by far the fastest and most dangerous vehicle I own. 110hp in a 550lb vehicle that you ride through the woods on 10-20 ft wide trails.........ummm yeah. They are alot of fun though. On lakes, 50mph fishtails, donuts and just general gettin' sideways is a cinch and if you have enough room to open it up it'll do 100mph.

Good thread Astrohog, I've always wondered what kind of other vehicles the members here drive too.

And yes, I wheel it from time to time. The last pic is from atop Bald Mountain near Pinecrest, CA and that is Pinecrest Lake in the background.

BTW - the Subie you have is SWEEET! Reminds me of my Maxima (same color too!) Unfortunately, I had to sell that about 4 years ago :(

Just a quick Subaru story for you, a couple weekends ago I was sitting a red light behind a pretty loud 5.0 Mustang and Legacy wagon like astodog's. They started throwing revs at each other (the subie had a BOV and I think that was it) and when they raced they both got a good launch but that Mustang got absolutely embarassed LOL. I laughed all the way home about this.

I ride a 2005 Sportster 1200 Custom as a daily driver and my wife drives our 2004 Mazda 6 Sport Wagon. I don't have any pictures yet. But then I also have my 72 Z which will start getting completly taken apart for the bodywork to get rid of the rust on it.

In addition to the Z, I also drive a '66 MGB and a '01 Audi A4 (Turbo) Quattro. The challenge is in deciding which car to drive on any given day :-)

I also have a 1998 Ford Explorer. My wife's car is a 2002 BMW X5.

Which is an awesome care by the way. Everyone should have one.

My first car I bought was the 280z (two years ago at the beginning of the summer). Then I realized there's just no way I'm driving that through the winters here! So I bought my other car off my brother when he went into basic training in the Air Force. It's a junker 1990 Grand Marquis that had 45k miles on it when we bought it 5 years ago. Odo broke at 64k and I suspect it's got roughly 85k miles on it. But man, those winters are brutal on it and it looks like a 185k mile junker car.

Looking to buy a different beater car, one with better gas milage. :devious:

Cheers!

James

Vehicles are listed below....I drive the Titan...not to boring for a truck..good performance if you can handle $65.00 fill ups, wife drives the Maxima, we drive the Miata sparingly on weekends when carrying space is not an issue.

The Z when it is finished will be driven on occasions...but on those occasions "Oh Lord"...I scare myself thinkin' about it. :nervous:
