I use to drive my 2005 F250 King Ranch 6.0 every day. Now my daily driver is my 97 D90.

Either driving the 90 or carpooling with the wife in the 325.

I would drive a 2000 Accord when it was cold to work, but i just blew the tranny after a trip to snoeshoe wv. it only had 200K on it!

I either walk, or take the local rolling ghetto (city bus).

Beater A4 -- parking garage designers can't seem to understand the 6'1" just doesn't cut it.

The 90. Mostly because I leave it on the street and it's NOT parked in by the wife. If i'm motivated i'll take the 911 or 1 of the bikes. I'm hoping this problem will be solved with the new house and garages. My goal is to have an everyday car/bike (ie a diff car or bike for each day of the week )

I would love a G500 one of the most comfortable trucks I have ever sat in. Someday one will be mine and the 110 will move on down the road.

My two feet since I work from home...

Weekends, usually the D90 or my C63. Not a bad choice to have to make!

I drive my 83 110 every day it's running and don't have to go too far. If a breakdown could potentially ruin the workday I rely on my Titan to pull through. I did actually call up the Rover for service when the Titan wouldn't start and I had to drive an hour each way for a couple of days. It performed flawlessly, even though I got passed by a couple of semis back up the hill.

Drove the 90 daily for 10 years.. Then a Turbo Beetle, then a Trail Teams FJ Cruiser, now 2012 Mini Cooper S.. Love the handling and the gas consumption.. Still use the Defender on weekends.. so mild down here I havent put the top on in 2 years..
