    Default What is your Daily Driver

    I am interested in seeing what everyone is driving other than their Z's. I currently have a 4runner and a Jeep Unlimited. Thanks for the input...

    My DD is an old, rusty '89 Toyota 4x4. It has 255,000 miles and still runs great. It's getting pretty ugly, but I just can't give it up until it dies. My wife has a Toyota 4Runner.

    I'm going to assume you mean when I'm not driving the 240Z. Because I do drive it regularly, generally commute to work in it at least once a week, if not more.

    When I'm not driving the Z, I use one of the following:
    • '96 BMW 328i - 5 speed, Sport Package, euro-ellipsoid headlights and AC Schnitzer wheels.
    • '91 VW Jetta GLI 16v - Purchased new in '91, mostly driven by my son these days. Euro-H4s, TechTonics exhaust, Neuspeed suspension, Momo wheels.
    • '92 BMW K75RT - also purchased new, in '93.

    Wow, a slick top '96 has to be pretty rare, no?

    The slick top is one of about 76 that were built in 1996.

    We only have two cars right now - the 1972 Z that I bought new ... and our daily driver which is a 1988 Toyota Camry that I also bought new for my wife. 225,000 miles on the Camry and it doesn't burn any oil at all. The Camry has been around and back in 1993/94 was in all of the lower 48 states within a 12-month period. I keep waiting for the Camry to expire so I can get another car but it just keeps running and is really a pretty good car. For us, it's the ideal size - not too big, not too small - even with 225k still gets over 30 mpg on the highway, and with the back seats folded down I can get 8ft 2x4's home from Lowe's! Indeed, if I could get a "new" 1988 Camry, with anti-lock brakes, a 5-speed automatic, and about 25 more horsepower ... I'd be a happy camper !

    My official daily driver is my 2002 GMC Duramax, 4x4, crew cab, with 3" exhaust and Edge Juice w/Attitude - http://www.edgeproducts.com/product.php?pk=49&pvk=131
    Once in awhile I'll take my '68 chevy C10 out for a ride to get stuff for home projects or out exploring the wilds. My 2/71 240Z was driven daily, but I recently changed to collector insurance - which I got the option for 2 days a week of driving it to work legally (an extra $50.00 a year).

    '99 Lexus GS300, just turned 150,000 miles. Runs like a top. Sometimes I drive my wife's '06 GS 300 when she lets me.

    I drive a 1985 Audi 4000 Quattro with 312,000 miles on it.....just had to replace the original clutch at 307k. The 4KQ was the best car Audi ever made....but sadly parts are getting hard to find.....I've had it 10 years so I've gotten good use out of it, but want to get something newer later this year if I can afford it. Eventually I'll get my 1969 Volvo 1800S restored and drive that too, (not mine in the pic tho mine is that color and looks just like that with 39 year old faded paint) of course when I do, then the 240Z will go under the knife to get restored. Meanwhile though I do drive the Z at least twice a week.

    Very cool!!! My dad (Diseazd) and I recently re-built the motor. 97 528 M52 engine with variable valve timing, new rings, new bearings, M3 cams, ARP head studs, OBDI intake manifold and a 93 525 VVT DME.

    Vogtland springs, Koni shocks, ACS type III wheels. Euro head and tail lights but I did the Acura TSX projector retro-fit with Philips D2S HID's.

    I just keep thinking with all the $ spent on this car, I could have an M5

    Tomwas.... Love the volvo Bertone coupe. Very cool!!! I miss my Volvo 850R wagon

    Lovin soundmasterg's old school volvo as well!!!

    My daily driver is either a stock 2002 BMW 525i w/26mpg, or a 1999 4Runner Highlander Edition. The 4runner has a 2" OME suspension lift, custom 1" body lift, front TJM winch bumper, custom rear Sonoran Steel high clearance bumper, custom air intake, Cobra CB with custom in-dash mounting, bumper mounted Firestick CB antenna, some stereo upgrades and a Commando alarm system. All items were installed or customized by yours truly.

    It alternates between my 1992 Miata, my 2001 Maxima SE, my 73 Z and my 1987 Maxima SE. The '01 Max is primary because of the cup holders and the Bose, but the Miata is great for this time of year (and it gets 30 Mpg!)

    Tom, you are correct, it's a V-12. About the same gas mileage as my Escalade, about 12mpg.

    Since my round trip drive to work in G'ville is 45 miles and I do it 6 days a week this is how I let my cars share the joy and get their exercise.
    72Z-1 day
    82ZXT-2 days
    03 GMC Envoy- 3 days
    That will change if it raining or to damn hot then the Envoy gets the exercise.

    Ttiger. Is your 87 maxima SE nice? My dad had one new in 87 and I had one in 95. I know that was one of his favorite cars ever.

    87 Maxima....brings back bad memories. I had one in 1995-96 and all it did was give me trouble. It ran allright but electrical gremlins led me to getting rid of it. Like the digital instrument cluster that would go blank whenever it felt like it and just as mysteriously return or the shifter that occasionally wouldn't come out of park.

    I just keep thinking with all the $ spent on this car, I could have an M5

    Tomwas.... Love the volvo Bertone coupe. Very cool!!! I miss my Volvo 850R wagon

    Lovin soundmasterg's old school volvo as well!!!
    By the way five&dime, thanks for the Bertone comp, i always liked them and wanted one, now i've been driving it about a month after working on it for a couple of months... Had my fun and now it's time to sell it... I work for a living but have been buying and selling 2,7 and 940 series Volvos as a side hobby for over 20 years now, usually 5 or 6 a year... That is one sweet dime you've got there, couple of guys in my Ct. Z car club have them also... Our Club advisor and fellow member is Bob Sharp, talk about being in the presence of glory.. What a great down to earth guy though, he even signed my ZX shock tower and a Z poster i've got........ Once I got divorced I started buying Z cars and other rides I always wanted, had a couple preludes, 3 BMW's, one Beemer was an 80's grey market 740i turbo car,had that one about a month and a half and sold it, life's too short, gotta have fun..............

    I have always like the bertone body style. At one time I was considering getting one and doing a wild engine swap. But then I realized I was an idiot with no money and the last thing I needed was a $ pit. They do look nice as coupe's. And they are RWD correct?

    Thanks for the compliments on my car!! I got the opportunity to take the 510 out on the track at summit point recently with the East Coast 510 meet. It was a blast. We camped out just off the track. There were 19 street cars and 6 track cars. I took tons of photos. My car was amazing on the track. We did parade laps behind Bryan Redman in a classic 911. Then a few of us discovered that the new drift track was left unattended The last photo is of Bryan Redman being followed by my friend David driving Pete Brock's old 510!!

    My daily driver is a 1999 Hyundai Accent. Decent gas mileage and it helps me improve my customizing techniques before I start using them on the Z.

    I used to use my Z as a daily until it got stolen in 2001. It's still quite capable of being a daily driver. I've just made other arrangemants since then. I have used a 89 Toyota Celica for about a year, a 91 Nissan NX1600 for about a year, and the 810 since 2003.

    Hey five&dime,

    My '87 Max is almost showroom. Original paint and no rips in the cloth seats. It's in a garage at home and in a parking garage at work so it doesn't get much sun-time. It just turned 200K and starts, runs and drives just fine. I got 100K miles on the last set of Michelins I put on it. I like it better than my '01 MAx. It's more of a true sports car!
    The boys have theirs, I got one too. 71 & 73 240Z, 1985 300ZXT
