Do you have a dedicated commuter car and a "fun" car?

    Two Ranges? That's a bit of conspicuous consumption.

    My 100+ mile a day work truck is a 2013 Prius Xsp. Our family car and wife's commuter and 5th wheel tow vehicle is my F250 XLT crew cab. My bug catcher is a 92 Fatboy. They're all fun.

    Hey Dave, how do you like the Evoque? They are interesting looking, and I've been meaning to get a close look at one. I'm concerned they are a little small inside, and that the 2.0 may be a little underpowered for a small suv

    Noted, Herr Chris. I donated the Volkswagen to the Disabled American Veterans and bought this Mini today as a daily driver. It's a 2015 BMW Mini Cooper S Paceman All4. It has all-wheel drive and lots of ground clearance for the winter driving conditions where I live. To me it looks like a Mini-Evoque. Seriously, driving the M3 (or the S2000) in snow and ice would amount to a prolonged suicide attempt here.

    That's pretty sharp GV. I can't find anything to not like about it.

    I saw a Lexus CT200h yesterday. Looks like it's probably built on the Prius platform without the Prius stigma.

    I have a couple of classic cars never hit with the original paint and I would like to keep them that way.

    As far as a VW TDI of that vintage those are great cars that have a following.

    Yes, but it didn't start that way.

    The '11 F150 4WD SCAB XLT was going to be a work vehicle. Turned out it was too nice and too comfortable (as well as too darned big). Now it's reserved for hunting, fishing, road trips, and towing the boat.

    The '13 Mustang Premium V6 w/6MT was going to be a daily driver (replaced a Focus). Turned out it was too nice and too much fun to be driving in salt half the year. Now it's reserved for dates with the LF, road trips and nice weather.

    I picked up a slightly used '13 Nissan Frontier S with 4-banger and 5-spd. stick in June. This is my go-anywhere, anytime in any conditions vehicle. As basic as it is, I like it nearly as much as the two Fords; plus its smaller size makes it much more useful for odd-jobs on my property than the (Big & Beautiful) F150. It also makes me feel like a broke college student/2nd Lt. again.
