Let's see your daily. I don't care how bad or cheap, just what you go to the autoparts store in to fetch parts for your Merkur. Not your wifes ride, not your friends ride your daily. :withstupid

Hi all,

I can't post photos here as I have no cloud storage accounts, deliberately, but it is a Screaming Yellow SVT Focus...

Sorry, just a plain, ol' F150 with rack and tool chest, but the Scorpio for short trips around town, unless I really need a good AC. The 5.0XR is up on stands, awaiting the time when I finish these honey-do projects.

I have to go over OH potholes, OH salt slush, OH salt water highway bath, OH 87 oct cheap gas in a daily. And park it places. Can't have anything too nice. I like to find 5 speed cars like this with over 100k with lots of life left. Cheap on parts and gas to.

Nothing special: '06 Silverado 1500HD 4x4 crew cab. Dark blue w/gray leather, just turned 125k. Paint is falling off in a few spots but mechanically this thing has been near perfect. Hell the original brakes lasted 115k mi.
