We all know the boat you own, what's your daily driver?

Being a gearhead for the last 30 years or so.... now I tend to drive our Chevy HHR panel the most (good mileage), with my 76 GMC 1 ton (468 big block, bad mileage) filling in as needed . I also rotate bikes in there occasionally.

I have a station wagon as I LOVE having room to haul crap around. I've had a pick up in the past but I like the passenger room and comfort of the wagon, plus the car like handling. It gets shitty gas mileage though because it is a 5 liter V8 with 300 hp.

Since the Nordic Tug is the slow diesel, we needed a fast diesel - a BMW 335d. Nothing like 425 pound-feet of torque at 1750 rpm, while still getting 40 mpg on the highway. We also have a Harley Night Train. And can't forget Carolena I, our Pearson 303 sailboat (also diesel), and, of course, the dinghy.

2004 Ranger pickup.

Some doofus t-boned and rolled my 1994 Ranger. With only 230k miles on the clock I figured she had another 10 years in her otherwise.

The wife's is a 2008 Accord. A red light runner destroyed her 1998 Civic or it would still be running.

I tend to drive 'em till they drop. At 10 years I consider them just broken in.

A couple of days ago I went and checked out the Focus ST, 250 HP turbo 4 cylinder. I really like it, almost tempted to buy one...my wife brought me to my senses by reminding me I have 10 or more cars too many bikes and a plethora of other "stuff"

I've got two of my Admiral's cars. A 2005 Hummer (12.7 MPG) and a new Wrangler "Artic". She picked both of them. I'm the 30 year old Mercedes Diesel Coupe type, or maybe a Landrover Defender, but I've had dozens of cars (sometimes a dozen at once) and it's better that I let her have her fling at it.
