    My avatar. Daily driver. 2014 Corvette C7 Z51. 460 HP. track ready. 55k miles. Drive it every day unless it snows. Hits 140 on the track back straight and is completely comfortable in traffic.

    Not worth much for a trip to Home Depot.

    What’s not to like?

    turn of the century cummins and a turn of the century Wrangler.
    I like driving way too much to not enjoy what I am driving (camry, "econobox," etc).
    I just don't get people that view cars as a means to an end. I mean I guess I do. but it is fun for me. I gripe about money constantly, but I could get by with 1 vehicle and put 10k in the bank from the sale of either.
    but each serves it's roll.

    and my beloved MKIV Jetta TDIs... one day I'll have another. they're cheap. but I cannot justify paying insurance on 3 cars, unless I was to just come into 4-5k and get a really clean one off the bat.

    Daddy gave me his 94 Silverado when I got my DL and bought himself a new one. I still drive it.

    The vast majority of my driving is in a 2013 Freightliner Cascadia daycab with a DD13 and 10 on the floor

    When they finally get tired of paying me I drive a 2015 Chevy Cruze, I put gas in it once every nine days or so and it’s fun to drive so it’s a double win

    That's what happens when you solicit me for your illicit dungeon escapades.

    AWD Toyota Sienna van. I like the comfort and room.

    ButI prefer my garden truck. It’s a 2006 4door Ranger Sport RWD. Vinyl floors and crank windows. Bought used two years ago with 62k miles by its one owner. It comes in handy a lot. Home Depot and compost dump here I come.

    Complete with a maintenance log and a Bible in the glovebox.

    And it makes me think of 1982 when I desperately wanted to buy one of the brand new Rangers. But as a young man paying for his first house buying one Was impossible. The payment would have been the enormous figure of $85.00 a month!!

    So now as an old man I have my Ranger....
