Daily is BMW 550xi. Who needs a Porsche when your daily is just as fast

Then a GMC diesel truck, '64 230SL Benz, '70 280SL, and a '71 Volvo 142E. It's kinda an odd collection, but fun none the less.

Slowboat 37, I want that 3.0 CS. One of those is next on my list. Always loved them.

And Skidgear, I used to have a '63 E-Type. Another real classic.

That 550 is one of the best 4 door sedans on the road today, IMO. My wife drives a 335i hardtop vert, a splendid car. Just bought mother in law a 2013 535i, I pushed hard for her to get the 550, to no avail.

If you don't already, you need to check out bringatrailer.com. I've seen several nice ones pass through there recently.

All true gear heads should have that website bookmarked.

Twisted, I plan on putting it on E-bay in a month or so, when time allows for detailing, pictures, etc. PM me if you are serious and have questions.

I love it. It's a rare combination of a really nice, comfortable sedan, and a rocket ship sports car. Hitting the gas puts a big grin on my face every time. 0-60 in 4.6 seconds is hard to beat without getting into serious exotics. Even the top of the line Porsche is only a 1/10 or two faster.

Oldie Mercedes for us. A 2001 E320 & a 2000 S500.

The E class is at almost 200K & is showing wear so I'm hoping to find a station wagon version soon.

I love mine!! I had a 2004 e320 wagon I sold when we didn't need a second car, then later we needed one again and I got a 2005 e500. The 320 had the power tailgate. Didn't realize how great that was til I got the 500 and it doesn't have one. I highly recommend that option! Good luck in your search.

I drive a 1999 VW Eurovan. It is difficult to believe what can fit into one of these things! I've hauled more stuff that I was sure that I'd have to rent a truck for. We also use it for camping.

I drive a 2012 Citroen C5 3 litre twin turbo as a daily driver. It's got the hydropneumatic suspension so the ride is as close to a boat on wheels as you can get.

The weekend cars are a 1974 Citroen DS23 auto/carby with a/c and a 1972 Citroen DS21 EFI/5 speed manual without a/c. One has exceptionally long legs and is a great highway cruiser. The other makes for very relaxed tootling around town.

You could say I like my Citroens!
