Mine is only a weekend nice day driver. It is in good shape and I would like to keep it that way so I can hand it down to my kids in 40 years!!

Although I have been looking for a fun daily driver. My 2001 F150 just isn't that much fun after 10 years. Still like new but just not a ton of fun. Will make a nice winter driver.

I drive my 69 442 daily. About 5000 miles a year. Biggest drawback is fuel cost since it gets only 8.5 mpg on premium gas. But you sure meet a lot of folks and it beats tooling around in some nondescript maytag-powered puddle jumper.

I only drive 4100 miles a year to work but it's the lunchtime 20 mile joyrides that cut into my fuel economy but THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT

I switch between the '98 Escort S/W (24/35 MPG) and the '92 Custom Cruiser (19/27 MPG). The sound of the CC is much better w/the Smithy's duals, though. Tinted windows, big rocket 88 on the back tailgate (from a '52). Makes a bit of a statement.

Only when the weather is good. I work only 9 miles from my house so on those nice days I drive it to work. I have 44k original miles on it.

First I ride my motorcycle. If I don't feel like riding it I drive my Cutlass. If it is winter time I drive my truck. So yes, I drive my Cutlass regularly in the warm weather and love every minute of it.

A Habs fan in Alberta?

Ok, back on topic.

I take public transit to work and school, but in the summer, try to drive the Delta as much as possible, that isn't to either of those.
