What are you driving? Include photo


I have a 2017 Subaru BRZ w/ performance pack (almost a ts). Unless you have driven this in the city or on a track, you have no idea how much fun this rig is. Handles like on rails. Holds the road like gorilla tape. Is it fast? If it was any faster, I would probably have wrapped myself around a telephone pole by now. One more thing, this buggy goes in and out of traffic like a go cart on steroids such that after 6 months of ownership, I have not even put on the radio yet. Too distracting. If I may quote my 14 year old grandson, “With a car like this, who needs an amusement park.”

My fun ride--Aprilia Scarabeo 500. Shown here before the 2017 Gentlemen's Ride (raise funds for prostate cancer research). It's far better than my Mazda3 for photo wanderings where roadside opportunities abound but parking is dicey.

2003 Mini-Cooper, the family says I should get a new car but I still like it. The Polaroid camera has a viewfinder problem:

Feb. 28, 2011. Picked up my new Volvo S60 T6 AWD in Gothenburg, Sweden at the factory. We spent 13 great days driving around Denmark and Sweden, before dropping it off for shipment to Seattle.

My winter DD is a 1995 Geo/Suzuki Tracker.

It's ugly... especially since drop painting it brown.

4x4 works great as well as the heater and lights.

Installed a lowrange 2" lift around Christmas and it has a really nice tow bar for our RV although we plan to sell both this summer.

My summer ride is a very clean 1990 Dodge D150 that gets a lot of looks! It's the cleanest body I've seen around Michigan and I try not to drive it on our salty roads.

On the weekends you'll catch us in our 1983 Chevy G30 Class C Camper. It's been a labor of love for me. More time spent on my back in the gravel on the side of the road than I will ever admit to! I do love driving it and hearing the dually whirl at speed (55mph). I will be sad handing over the keys but we are downsizing to a teardrop and beginning to build our dream "Tiny House".

Google images or a peek out at the neighbors driveway will pretty much cover photos! Nothing exotic in our corral!

'06 Ford Explorer that I bought in '09 with less than 22,000 miles on it. I've had it for 8 1/2 years now, and it's still under 113,000 on the odometer. But when I want to get around, it will take me just about anywhere. Except where the Jeeps go (they tend to tear up the fire roads).

You should file your record to Ford.
I read somewhere that an old man driving a Mercedes G500 557,000 miles for 26 years and recognized by Mercedes-Benz. Link here

Quote:
Before 'Otto' gets his definitive space in the Mercedes-Benz Museum, he's going to be sent out on the road again for two years from the end of February 2015 - travelling around the Mercedes-Benz Centres and company-owned sales and service outlets in Germany and Europe. 'Otto' will accompany a touring exhibition developed specially for the vehicle, recounting his interesting stopovers and most impressive experiences. The tour is likely to kick off in Munich in February 2015 – details of other dates can be found at www.mercedes-benz.com.

I like vehicles, so it's fun to see the variety in this thread... Happy highways, guys!

2017 Porsche Cayman S in the driveway; in the garage is a 2016 Mercedes C450 AMG that my wife drives and a 2012 Smart ForTwo that is my everyday around-town rig.

This is my toy, not my daily driver, but so much fun when I go for a drive. It's a limited edition Sport Elise (only 50 made) with some track focused mods from the factory (better suspension mainly). The original owner spent some bucks on modifying the engine. Supercharger and intercooler, bigger injectors, race head forged pistons, custom exhaust, etc.... at one time this under 2000 lb car was pushing 319 HP to the rear wheels...now dialed back a bit, but it's still a rocket.

My daily is an Audi A3 TDI that I'm about to sell back due to the diesel scandal. Not postitve what I will replace it with, but strongly considering a Mini Cooper S (Manual trans). They look like so much fun.

I also have a Honda Element that I will never get rid of. I love that car, as dorky as it is.

Thanks. That little car has been with me for over twenty years, including almost a decade of competition driving (it's heavily modified). Just waiting for the weather to warm up a bit to get it out of the garage.

Lots of fun in this thread.


280,000+ miles on this one



1965. Summer Car once the salt is off the roads



1974 850 Commando. 2018 is the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the Norton Commando, as it happens.


1982 Moto Guzzi V50 III 2600 miles


The Land Cruiser, the 356, and the Norton I pretty much restored myself. The Guzzi, I lucked into.

Mechanical things, designed and built to a purpose, not a price point, by engineers with focused souls, not focus groups..
Probably why I like older film cameras more than newer appliance feeling cameras. Personally.

Well, lessee:

There's my car:

2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK280

My motorcycle:

2017 Moto Guzzi V7III Racer

My fat ebike:

2017 iZip Sumo E3

And my new fat bike:

2017 Specialized Fatboy Comp Carbon

One might say that I have a vehicle plenitude... And an obsession with two-wheelers in general.
These days, I ride the bicycles most of the time for daily forays into the world.

2000 3.0L Diesel Hilux Dual Cab 4x4 in green. My daughter named her "Green Rose", or "Greeny" for short. Nothing fancy, and no danger of a speeding ticket, just a dependable workhorse. Over 350,000 kms and still going strong.

Here she is on Moreton Island, lapping up the sand.

The 4Runner is my working vehicle and the other is the fun one...
Plus there's a 1994 Mustang GT in the mix...I drive it around town instead of the 4Runner...
