I drive an old 65 chevy pickup. Looks like crap after it got sideswiped in front of my house but guys still want to buy it and tell me how nice it is!!! Has never let me down though. Thanks to current trends I get to call it a rat rod instead of a rusty wreck.

Well I guess I'm a lucky SOB with an extremely forgiving wife.I have an Audi A4 3.0L 6 spd. Quattro for the 8 months of Canadian winter and for the 4 months of searing heat I get to chose between my 75TS -street occasional track and my beast the 86 GTV6 for track and street.

I don't really have a daily driver per se as I try to keep the whole fleet exercised. My "primary" ride is the 2001 Cobra and it gets the most use in the Summer once it gets too hot & sticky here for open vehicles to be comfortable. The A4 is my wife's but I get to drive it when we go out together or on a road trip.



The Bronco is my chore vehicle for hauling stuff. I've been using it for foul weather but it's getting in such bad shape it's becoming a chore to drive. I need to rebuild the extra engine I have to go in it. Since I put Summer tires on the Cobra recently I'll need to drive it more this Winter.

To each their own but the new Bugs go against my sense of what's "right" in the universe. A real Bug has the engine in the back

To each their own indeed... but from where I come from "Cobras" don't come in mustang bods... they are reminisant of the AC Bristol.

At least there's a little of Shelby's DNA in all Cobras.

Yes, to each his own. My GTV6 is my daily driver and I have a Ford Taurus as my backup. Well every Alfa owner needs a backup don't they!! What I can't figure is how someone who enjoys all the joys an Alfa can bring to a drive can also drive a truck unless you need it for work or a tow vehicle for the Alfa. But like they said, to each his own.

Jimcheney, post more pics of that 635, and tell us more. It's one of my favourites and the sound that motor makes gives Alfa a run for it's money. Please tell me it's a 5 speed.

If you have never driven a Mustang Cobra, or even a Mustang GT 5 speed, do yourself a favour and test pilot one. I don't care able the back axle. It's only under really hard driving that you may notice it.

And I won't pollute this thread with a pic of my Taurus. It's better than a *** car, and not bad as a daily car, but I cannot drag myself away from the Alfa.

My 5 cents worth.

And on the 7th day, he made Alfas....

There are only 10 types of people.... those who understand binary, and those who don't.

a truck is not a vehicle you enjoy driving per se, but it is great for hauling stuff, and BTW, my slide in truck camper does not fit in the trunk of the Duetto
