    Commuter is my F250 work truck.

    Fun is the Focus ST with some go-fast parts and a nice tune.

    Got a 1995 Ford Escort Wagon,
    1986 Toyota pickup,
    and a 2011 Chevy HHR.

    I don't especially enjoy driving, so the cars are for just getting from point A to point B.

    The truck is for hauling what won't fit in the cars.

    For commuting, I put the juke in eco mode. For fun, sport mode. Yeah I don't have more than one car.

    My SLK32 and my G55 are both my fun cars. Considering a Ducati 848 for a commuter. My cars drink fuel like it's free.

    2010 BWM 335i msport with some extra fun mods is the daily driver/fun car. The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon in the avatar is the pure toy. Life is too short to drive boring cars.

    Nearly all of my driving is in rental cars, right now it's a 2014 Camaro. Before the Camaro it was a Dodge Charger and before that a Buick Enclave. I have 2012 Chevy Impala and a 2008 GMC Sierra and wife has a 2012 Camaro. To answer the question not I don't have a dedicated commuter car nor a fun car. At one time I had a Camaro bracket car and a IROC Z28 for fun cars.

    My daily driver is a pretty fun car. It's a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. [​IMG]

    I've always liked the idea of having a dedicated daily driver and a toy, but I've never really been able to figure out how to balance it financially. If I drive a cheap beater daily and have a pricey toy that gets little use, it seems like a waste of money. If I drive a fairly decent, somewhat enjoyable daily driver and have a reasonably priced toy, the toy won't be that much fun. I suppose the only solution is to make more money.
