We have post your car, but that's evolved politely for the most part into a "Post your Alltrac" thread.

So lets see what you guys DD (assuming it's not an Alltrac!)

Here are some of my DDs. I alternate between them. Nothing spectacular, just plain ol' reliable, daily drivers. Boring, but they do the job and keep me out of trouble. Too slow for speeding tickets. :P

This one just got sold, thought I'd mention it. It's a 1996 Toyota Camry DX. It's been a very reliable car, a great beater. I somewhat regret selling it. I sold it to a young college student in need of a car. 5speed, 330k miles. Everything worked, and no leaking fluids. A/C was colder than my 2002 Camry LE. Considered boosting it, but too many turbo projects. It served its purpose. Will be replaced with something else sooner than later. It will be missed. :smokes:

Image

Here's my other DD. I use it more now, since I just sold the 96 Camry DX. Will be doing some minor mods soon (re-tint, suspension, 17" wheels and try to source leather seats or get a Katzkin kit. Tired of cloth seats). Serves its purpose. Better in traffic than the 96 Camry. Comfy enough and good on gas. This one's a keeper. Pic was taken in GA a few months ago.

Image

And the SUV. A 2001 Toyota Highlander V6 4WD. More of a weekend errand machine (shopping, take kids to the park/outtings etc). I don't have a better pic. Sorry. I took this pic at night, about two years ago. Not the best, but Highlanders are nothing special. They're dime a dozen. Sold the wheels, back to stock now. Will be getting another set similar to it. Tire Rack has had good deals lately. Odd that I don't take pics of my cars as much as I do other cars. Will update when I get new wheels.

Hah.... funny how the daily drivers are not your GT4s.
I guess that says something about how reliable they are at this age :(

... my daily IS my GT4 though :D

1990 Ford Laser; 1.6L carby 5sp 300,000km odo, fwd goodness. Can stretch its tank to 700kms on pulp. Has seen lots of dirt road action and collected some air time. Can almost outdrag a plumbers van. Put a passenger in it and its slows right down :) Cheap, easy to maintain and has Mazda mechanicals that are alot more reliable than ford's. Police caught me at 128kph in it - downhill! lol.

The Wagon, this is what I drive most of the time (I love wagons).

Image

Image

This is the other car, the wife drives it more than me but it is my daily sometimes, mostly when the wife needs the wagon.

Image

I don't have pictures of it but I also have a Toyota Tacoma that serves DD duty at times, typically when German un-reliability rears it's ugly head. There is also an Oldsmobile Achieva that serves snow duty.
