Your daily drive?

Recommended Posts

It changes month to month, as I work in the car rental business.

Currently a Golf GT TDi or Peugeot 207 (I get 2 cars)

So impressed with the Golf, but I get bored quickly so may be a new Civic next.

'01 Merc CL55AMG. I bought 'Eva' in May and love her to bits, and had got halfway through August without using Lottie. So I decided to let her rest another couple of weeks before renewing her road tax (ran out end July). Went for a hoon in Lottie on Friday and remembered why I love her so much. The Benz is a fine, powerful and very sophisticated car (just what you want for a wife) but Lottie is a hell-raising, extroverted performer (just what you want in a mistress)!

Long as they don't talk to each other on the driveway...

Coo! This thread has been dragged out of the vault...... Moley has mainly been driving a Volvo V40 diesel estate...need the carrying capacity, and it does 65 or so mpg at 80 mph! Electrically heated seats are good for this time of year, too....

As i'm not in Canada any more, the Jeep is no longer used by me cry.gif but is still used by MarkTC back 'home' though :)

My daily is now a (dare i say it) citroen C1 !

well, 60mpg, £20 road tax and cheap insurance was the only reasons due to the high price of motoring 40 miles a day.

still looking at trading it in for a s2 Elise 111s though smile.png

Stock BMW 520i petrol with 150 000 miles on it. Never misses a beat, and is frequently used for hauling trailers with Lotus, Marcos and Honda MC parts or heavy tools/machinery :-)

The 944 and the Xj6 are the two current daily drivers, but another collector car that sees occasional use besides the Esprits is my 1977 Lancia Scorpion (a.k.a. Montecarlo):

For me it's the missus Audi S8... a little big for some of the streets around my area just the same, but it's nice to have the power at your toes!

If we are discussing Winter time, a new Honda Civic EX Coupe with four Nokian RSI's. Summer duty is shared between my Esprit S1 (when it runs!) and an Infiniti G 35 six speed coupe.

Tony, is that the new to you 944?
