Do you have a daily driver?

Do you have a daily driver vehicle besides your truck? If so, what is it?

Mine is a black 1998 Mercedes-Benz E320 with 82,000 on it.

My daily driver is a white 03 Pontiac Grand Am GT1 coupe with the SC/T package. It's pretty much the same as a regular GT except mine has the ram air hood, raised rear spoiler, steering wheel controls, everything but leather. No pics of her though (work computer). I'll get pics tomorrow since it's suppose to be decent out.

Edit: Sorry it tooks so long but here's the pics.

My daily used to be my truck. Even with TSL's 4.56's and a locker.

Now I have a 1998 Harley Sporster 1200. Gets 43mpg also. A lot better than the 12.5 I get with the truck.

My truck is my DD. I would get something a little more fuel efficient, but at 6' 7" it'd be kind of like Hightower in Police Academy. Luckily, my drive to work is 14 miles of mostly highway, so I can squeeze out almost 20 mpg.

I've been driving the 04 Lexus GS300 around for the last 2 months, truck needs work. It's usually my DD, but with gas prices so high and the fact that it needs work...the Lexus wins for now.

I miss my truck though

After we bought the car, it sat at my parent's house for 2 months, haha. I asked my mom how often he drives it and she said, "at most? once a week".

Truck's having problems, parents don't drive the car... might as well use it. It's gonna go back to them soon, when my truck is done. Can't wait.
