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.

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.

This guy drives around my town everyday (old festiva hatchback), never going over 25 and holding up traffic. I think it is hilarious.
