Post up your daily driver

So this forum is about our toys... what we like to cruise around on the weekends in, and show off.

Well, what about your daily driver? What do you put the miles on? Take to work, etc?

Post some pics!


Here is mine:

2007 Dodge Ram 2500 5.9 Cummins

Has quite a large mod list... but includes some go fast goodies, H2 wheels, SRT10 hood, Amsoil in everything, Mickey Thompson ATZ tires, and a bunch more.

2007 awd equinox has 170,000 miles.temp gauge never works. but it has been a great truck . I have owned it since 6,000 miles . 21 mpg average all stock. I will run it till it dies and keep the new car in the garage with low miles.

'08 HHR I bought a few years ago as a total and rebuilt. I had been driving K1500 trucks for 20 years and got tired of feeding the oil companies profit. The HHR gets 28 mpg where my 2000 K1500 gets 14. Took some time to get used to driving a roller skate, but I like it now. The k1500 is my plow truck and trailer car hauler.

This is what I put the most miles on and it's sitting down at the end of my driveway waiting for morning.
I do have a white 2014 Timpte trailer now. The old Black 2012 Wilson is in the picture.

Mine is a 2007 Pontiac Solstice GXP. Rain or shine, snow or no snow. Good thing for the limited slip in the rear. It's taken me through some pretty nasty stuff for a little rear wheel drive car. I stayed home this particular day.



I took this in the upper p in Michigan on my way back from the Woodward Dream Cruise a couple of years ago.

I like those cars a lot, is it a convertible or do some of them have a removable hardtop?

Mine is a convertible. I think the last 2 years they made them (2009-2010) they had a targa coupe version. They only sold a hand full of these. It's been a really fun car especially with the turbo 2.0 and 260 hp.

I'm not looking forward to having to change the battery which I probably should do this year. I have to take the aftermarket rocker panel and front fender off to do that.

A 265" long, 8000+ pound '11 F250 crew cab long bed but now with all F350 suspension. 17/20 plus mpg city -open road with 6.7 diesel power (400Hp/800lb ft). It has critter comforts beyond anything I really need while pulling our 34' 5th wheel camper and except in tight parking garages, drives about as nicely as any vehicle I've owned but my '31 roadster:
