Let's See Your Daily Drivers

I wonder what everyone drives on a daily basis, so post em up. Mine is a 1999 Ford Crown Victoria LX. I just turned 275,000 miles two days ago, and I've owned it since it was brand new. It still gets 22mpg on my 86 mile round trip commute each day, and doesn't use a drop of oil. I'm only on my third set of brakes, which is not bad with all the Brain Donor drivers here in Jersey. :lol: It even has the original cats, O2 sensors, water pump, etc.. I rebuilt the 8.8 rear myself, added a traction lock, and changed gears from 3.27's to 3.73's, and currently down to 2.73's. Believe it or not, there's no difference from 3.73's to 2.73's, except on a grade, the 3.73's never shifted out of OD. The gas mileage was the same. I may put them back in, since I'll be towing the Fairlane to the track more often. I don't think I'll be driving it to Raceway Park in Englishtown, NJ any longer, with the 521 in there. :lol: The only thing that doesn't work is the ABS, which I plan on finally fixing when the NGS Scan Tool comes that I just bought. Here's a couple shots......





A little fun at St. Thomas Dragway in Ontario, after taking a tour of the ST. Thomas Plant where my Vic was made. :lol:




New project coming... 1932 Ford 5 Window Coupe 521/C6

This is my driver, it aint much for beauty but it runs a mid-10 sec 1/8 on motor @ just under 5600#. Haven't run it with the NOS for time but it picked up almost 15 mph in the 1/8 with a 150 hp shot. I use this truck for everything from dump runs to hunting to just goin to the grocery store. I sure get a lot of looks, especially after I blow somebody's doors off. When I took it to the track last summer, the announcer said: And here comes Doug Roope in what looks to be his granddaddy's farm truck. :lol: :lol:

My daily driver- 1997 Nissan Maxima. This is the 3rd one I've owned, as I got a little crazy in my teenage years and totaled the other 2 :roll:

Just turned over 160,000 miles, all stock down to the origional clutch except for Brembo zinc plated/slotted brakes all the way around/stainless steel brake lines and SS clutch line and stereo system and still going strong. It's pretty quick too(for a 3.0V6 w/ 190hp/210tq @3010lbs & 5spd), but gets 30mpg on the highway, which is the real reason I drive it- lots better than the Bronco w/466, but not NEAR as much fun :twisted:

I'll bite.

93 Cavalier, that I turned into a Z24 clone. Was a 4 cyl VL (Value Leader :P ) but I slowly turned it into what you see before you now with a mild 3.1.. (say 135 at the wheels). Cheap car, cheap insurance, 24 average MPG, reliable, and FWD.

Had it 4 years so far.. Yes, it's that Green Go Dodge color. Yes, it's a Chevy.. flame away.

I know, but its transportation. At least it isn't a factory color. It would have some 17's or 18's on it if I could find any to fit it cheaply. Goddam 5x4.25" bolt pattern :evil:
