Smile What do you drive?
Like the title says. What kind of vehicle(s) do you own or use on a regular basis?

I've got my 1998 Mitsubishi Carisma 1.8 GDi
I love this car, even with all the engine idle problems she gives me. She starts every. single. day without fail! (Unlike the POS Ford I owned prior to the mitsu)

I also have a Jinlun 150-5 (Marauder edition) Motorcycle. Unfortunately I do not have a license to drive it (Yet).
When I bought it it was dark green, and I completely hated that color, so I stripped the paint and painted it black.
This is an older picture, so excuse the lack of front mudguard.
I had to fix the rear left turn signal, since the previous owner tried to fix it, but ended up destroying it. I also had to buy a side cover, since the previous owner also lost it during his last trip on it before I bought it.
I got someone from the MC club to help me, since it had problems where it would just suddenly stall and die when it was idling, turns out it was the spark plug cap that was busted.
What is left before I can take it to the MOT, is to get a new speedometer cable and mirrors, and then it's ready for take-off.

What about you? What are your wheels?

Ha, the '96 Corolla. Was what I drove last. Always thought it had an amazing turning radius. If you know the car well, and unless it wasn't just with my '96, switching down to the L-gear (what I called the Lightning-gear) at around the 40KM mark gives you a nice boost until about 65KM, as well as shifting down to the 2-gear at around 80KM.

Right now I'm driving a black, fully-loaded, 2003 Honda Accord EX-L, which I pretty much robbed my parents of. They sold it to me for $6,000.

My wife has a 2000 Toyota Corolla and I have a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited.

After I get a law job we will sell the jeep and buy a minivan so we can transport little rod around.... Either the Toyota Sienna or Honda Odyssey.

The jeep has piss poor gas mileage and stuff just keeps breaking even though we hardly drive it. Functionally the minivan can do everything the Jeep can do and more except tow.

Edit: I also ride around town on either my 2009 Canondale CAAD9-5 road bike or my 1989 Trek 1400 (rain bike). We bought a Burely Cub to transport little rod around when he is a bit older. We live in a very bike friendly town.

Pretty much this, a 2005 Ford Falcon BA XR6 MKII...

This isnt my actual car but its the closest pic there is on the net. Its the same colour, has the same dual black stripe but its essentially the same.
Here we go folks... The rarest creature in nature... The Duketard. I will now approach him very quitely and... Jam my thumb in his butt hole. That should REALLY piss him off!.
