    Unless it's very cold, wet, or I need more cargo space I ride one of these:




    2002 1500cc Kawasaki Vulcan Mean Streak
    1972 Honda CB 350 (350cc of course)


    The big one is my weekly commute ride while the small one is for weekends and special occasions like shows, cruise in's etc.

    1999 Ford Explorer 4x4. 181,000 miles on the clock, cracked windshield, flashing overdrive light indicates that the torque converter is not locking up, needs a tranny rebuild. Used to get 17mpg city, now 13.8 mpg probably due to slipping tranny. If I can't get a killer deal on an '08 Pilot when the '09's hit the showroom next month, I'll rebuild the tranny on this one and drive it until it disintegrates. Its the Powernoodle way.



    Wifey's '08 Honda CR-V. Sweet ride:



    Restored 1969 CST-10 truck with 56K miles. I put about 200 miles a year on it:

    My car and one of my working bikes. It's an old pic but the bike's so good (Intense Tracer) I haven't bought a new XC one since.

    Volvo V70 R
    Manual transmission, big dual-piston Brembo brakes, 300 hp but only on a cold day with good gas and a warm engine and high humidity with the A/C and traction control turned off etc etc.
    I do like the car, though. I hope to drive it 'til it's unfixable.
    I've tinted the windows since the photo.



    Wish I could ride my bike into Boston/Cambridge but there's no good safe way from the South direction and a reactivated train line killed all hopes for a rail-to-trail. Man that train spews a lot of gunk. Hard to imagine it's really lowering pollution. Sorry. Back to topic...

    I drive a 1956 Ford F-350. I used to have an '02 F-350 diesel (in the background), but the '56 is just much more fun, though slightly less capable. Fuel mileage is somewhere down around the single digits (I don't even keep track), but it does most of what I need to do- hauling firewood, pulling the trailer with the tractor, etc...It needs some work, but I wouldn't know what to do with a truck that was in brand- new shape. Heck, this is the first vehicle I've ever owned with fewer than 100,000 miles on it.

    Commuter:
    1992 Geo Metro 5spd, 3cyl 1.0L motor, 325,000 miles on the original engine, transmission and exhaust. 48MPG on the freeway cruising at 75MPH, I think 40MPG in the city though I rarely drive except on the freeway. Zippy to drive, not a slug at all.

    Totally reliable - just won't die.

    Family Mobile:
    2001 PT Cruiser, 2.4L 5spd stick, first one in the neighborhood. Waited 3 months to get it. Bad gas mileage (25 freeway, 16 city), pitiful power except on the freeway.

    Truck:
    1993 Ford Ranger, 3.0L V6, 5 spd stick, 165,000 miles- it's a dog. ANYTHING will run circles around it even on the freeway.

    Hobby/Fun
    1991 Nissan Sentra SE-R 'classic', 2.0L 5 spd stick, 168,000 miles. Sleeper car.

    1991 Nissan 240sx, 2.4L 5 spd stick. Fun RWD car ~ 55,000 miles, not as quick as the Sentra and more squirrely.

    Exercise:
    Bianchi Giro, shimano 105 triple components, forget which Shimano aero wheels I have. (8,000 miles I think)

    Dream (what I wanted growing up):
    Lotus Turbo Esprit - though I think I'm finally outgrowing the hard angular shape.

    My one and only car is my 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX. I just hit 30k miles today. Lol. If I granny it, through an entire tank, city MPG would be around 20 and highway 27mpg. But normally I average a shade over 20mpg overall.

    Up until April 10th of this year, a silver 1998 Ford Escort sedan. Bought it in 2000. She never let me down. Extremely reliable. She was totalled after some guy in a van decided to jump into my lane, despite no cars being in front of him. At least he was honest.... Got the check from his insurance company in the mail today.

    Currently driving a 2008 Nissan Sentra. (But it has to go back to the rental car company on Monday). Ironically, the Sentra isn't very well put together.

    How many MPG are you getting with your Yaris? This would be my top pick right now. Should hold it`s value very well.

    Average 7.63L/100KM in the last year (30.83 miles/gallon). I drive mostly long distances on highway as my employer pays me the bus. During the winter it did around 9L/100KM (26.13 miles/gallon). During last summer, the average was around 6.5L/100KM (36.19 miles/gallon).

    My #1 is a 2001 Kia Rio 5 speed. Fresh off a valve job & rear brakes after 118,700 miles. Before the valve job it got 32-37 MPG now we'll see. It was a replacement for a similar automatic Rio that was smashed by a red light runner

    #2 is a beater Ford 95 Windstar I got while the Kia was ill. It can get 20 MPG if I feed it 20-30% ethanol/gas and don't do much city driving. self blending fuel is a pain but it adds 2-3 Miles to the beast. It has 240,000 miles on it too. Took 2 steam cleanings and 5 cans of Febreeze to clear the previous owners cigarette stench

    #3 are my vintage road bikes, Trek and Diamondback.

    Hey ttran97, I recognize that pic from MBWorld forum. PM me your name over there!

    I'm driving my first ever expensive, exotic car. It's a 2006 VW Touareg V10 TDI. For those not familiar with VW that's a TEN cylinder Diesel engine! It's got every gizmo imaginable. However, I miss my sporty car so I'm selling this and looking for a used C6 series Corvette and an older Lexus LS430 (to fill the gap the 2 seat Vette creates).

    Displacing night on a daily basis.
