2001 MX-5 LS 6spd
I can fit my acoustic guitar case in the trunk. What else do I need?
Great story re the Monte!
Pugs are legendary in Australia, ever since a race around Australia (on completely disgusting harsh bush tracks) back in the 50s was won by a 203. Google "Redex trials"
When I was a teenager my father's friend had a 504 and I thought it was the smoothest, best riding car I'd ever been in, I still want one!
Peugeots are very common and popular down here
2019 WRX 6MT. Fun car. Quick, decent mileage, very practical, and great performance in both Summer and Winter with nothing more than a tire swap. Replaced a similar 2016 WRX.
I am very fortunate to have a choice of these two.
It's a lightly hail-pocked 2016 Mazda 6 for me. No point in taking a pic of something so mundane.
My '87 VW Scirocco chides me gently from farther back in the driveway every time I leave for work.
the everyday (when I go somewhere); and the notso everyday
2010 Hyundai Elantra, 92,000 miles. Its predecessor was a 2003 Elantra that went 215,000 miles. All I want a car to do is get me there and back with no trouble or surprises, and both of them have done that consistently. Brakes, tires, oil changes, the occasional wheel bearing, the occasional tuneup.
Man, you guys are old...
2003 Toyota Corolla LE. Bought brand new, 180,000 miles on it. Excellent car, room for three guitars (in cases), a Vibrolux, my gig box, plus assorted stands in the trunk. Definitely the best car I've ever owned, even though it's as boring as hell...
One for me, one for my wife. Both black, mine black wheels, her’s silver. Mine petrol, her’s diesel. Great cars.
That is what I was thinking. Guitar players with boring cars? ... blasphemy.
At least there is a Chevy HHR, a Spyder and a Fiat. Just sayin'
Good old volvo v50. Proper grandad car
Ah, OK... Honestly, I wouldn't have suspected that the "Pugs" (nickname for Peugeot, I guess) were well-known in Australia !
Well, since the question included the word “everyday,” I don’t know whether it’s the train I just got off, or the bicycle I’m about to get on...
p.s. this is actually from last night. Somehow it seems I didn’t send it after unlocking my bike.
That is awesome. Is bike theft an issue in Japan?
Guitar: Red sparkle telecaster with a birdseye maple neck.
Car: Faded 20 year old Toyota/Honda/ Mazda with 200k on the odometer.
The Pilot that replaced the VW I liked so much. It's objectively good, can fit two baby seats at the same time, and I suppose comfortable. Not a lot of fun when it's just me, though.
The dealer photo of my hooptie before I took delivery:
I love this car, floats down the road. I commute a lot as a journeyman carpenter (union), and this thing was too perfect for the long hauls. 07 Grand Marquis. Mine has a lot more miles than this one, but same color.
