What is your daily driver

I was driving my 78 928 everyday since I bought it in 1991. Then last year I got the 914 So i really enjoyed sharing the duties between the two. Now have new job at Northrop Grumman ship systems (Pascagoula) and can't handle parking either of my P cars in gravel parking lots. Not to mention overspray from painting ship parts.
Hi my name is Joe and I drive a 88 K car.

Don't feel bad

Don't feel bad Joe, my DD is a '94 Camry with 150K on it.
It just won't die!!! Runs like the day I bought it.

Can't drive the 'teener to work, the traffic is too darn bad around here.

1997 993, silver over black. Damn hot during the summer here, but my clients love to ride in it. They always wonder (out loud) if they are paying me too much!

914 is reserved for Fridays and weekends, Fall and Winter only!

Mine used to be a 66 Beetle, but when I added 220BHP it got a little difficult to drive everyday..

Now the main drivers is my 73/2.0 914, or the 912E....

I proudly own nothing with a radiator!

Hi Joe! I have some fond memories of those gravel parking lots outside the shipyard at Pascagoula MS. U.S.S. Simon Lake AS-33, 1986. It's retired now. At that time my DD was a 73 Mercury Marquis w/429. Great car for cruising I-10 to N'ahlens.

Anywho...
If it's not wet out (even in the winter), I drive either my /4 or my /6. Otherwise my DD is a 93 Jeep Cherokee w/6" lift.

1999.5 Audi A4 2.8QT Love the car, but I need to put some sportier shocks+springs on it. After driving the 914 w/ suspension mods on it the Audi feels like a big fat pig wearing tapshoes Still love the car though.

Well, once I get my 914 done it will be my DD. As for now the bus, girlfriends 97' Maxima or my skateboard work great!!

My DD is a 2000 Chevy ZR2 Blazer. My 914 has not been brought back far enough to drive yet.

Depends on which car is availible and if I am working after work or not.

93 Lightnting 14.5 in quarter with 100K on it: have Alum gt-40 heads and a lowering kit but alas no time. 60-70% DD

90 Buick Reatta: fiance likes it so I keep trowing money into it

2002 Mini Cooper: Actually my moms car, but sometimes it's the only thing that runs.

75 2.0 914: Again sometimes it's the only thing that runs, but 34 sheets of drywall don't fit so good.
