What Do You Drive?

Postby Knight26 » Wed Feb 11, 2015 5:45 pm

Being a bit of a car enthusiast, I'm interested to see some of the beasts you all drive on the daily and the weekends.

I only have one car the moment. It's my total pride and joy. I'd like to garage her only for the weekends but I'm yet to find another daily.

This is my 1976, Ford Escort Mark II. I've done quite a bit to this car. I try to keep it as original as possible but I'm slowly "gangstering" it up. I'm running a 711m small block with side draft dual pump carburettors and rally cam. Hauls ass an looks good while doing it.

Can't go wrong with a Ford Escort, my first one was a Ford Fiesta.

Stock photo, Harley Iron! About to get some ape hangers fitted.

Whatever fits me, the wife, and our four kids easiest. In a grand stroke of adventure, we're considering our growing our car count to two, the second possibly being a Honda Odessey(sp?)
A small, shell-grey-eyed male begins to flicker and flash, turning to a red color as such happens. Without warning, a slim, silver-hilted lightsaber hilt ignites with a ruby-hued length. "Incorrect. I am programmed for queries, not pleasure."

A silver Kia Forte. It is the girliest looking car and I am totally okay with that. The tires are going to kill me in all this snow though.

The Golden Galleon:

2001 Pontiac Grand Am, for the grandma on the go.

Though it is surprisingly agile for a 4 cylinder.

And, for the snarfagle of it, my first car, the Blue Blur:

Image

1995 Buick Regal

This thing was a snarfagling BEAST for a luxury sedan. Got into 3 wrecks in it (all caused by other people, though I regularly drove 90mph everywhere I went), totaled the other cars while only receiving scratches myself.

Hated it when I got it, grew to love it, hated it when I had to sell it. Rust started eating at the frame. Had to replace the leaf spring, then, after that didn't fix it, wound up selling it for the Pontiac.

A few shots of my current daily, The General:

The Valiant Charger is the Australian-made version of the Dodge Charger, ie the Dukes of Hazzard car for those who know the shape! It runs a straight 6 Hemi 265 with triple SU side-draught carburetors. She's a '75 and is about to go back to original Green Go!

Also, bonus Redback Victory Custom:

Not so impractical, really, as long as you're happy.

A piece of shit Saturn. I hate driving, and almost never drive anywhere, so have no inclination to buy something nicer. I spend the money I save on car payments to have an Uber take me where I need to go. :P

2007 Subaru impreza wrx hatchback. It gives me grief only because I work for Toyota Canada. Other than that, it's by far the most fun, safe and economical vehicle I've ever had the pleasure to drive. And that includes my 2005 is300.. Is it sad I forgot how to embed pictures into forum posts?? :oops:

First car: 1969 Pontiac Catalina, 2 door hardtop. 455 cubic inches of pure, gas-guzzling, oil-burning horror.

Now: Work car is a 98 Dodge Dakota with the rear fenders rusted out, as all Dakota's are.

Wife's car: Mazda 3. Grey. We love it.
