Thought it might be fun to get an off topic discussion going to have SM members post pics of their 'dailys' or other cars that they own.

So here's my daily I recently picked up

2011 Lancer Evolution GSR SSS+Aero

I also own a 1965 Mercury Comet Caliente, but that doesn't get driven as often as it deserves.

Nice, my wife has a 2013 Ford Escape and I recently sold a 1012 F150. I am very much a fan of what ford has been putting out lately. You have a very full garage........

I also didnt mention one of my other summer daily rotations is a Harley Sportster Forty Eight.

Nice, I am somewhat new to mitsubishi but have helped a few friends work on DSM's over the years. They have put out some great powerplants over the years.

2004 Volvo V70R. 6 speed manual, AWD, 300hp stock. Currently lowered, Fast wheels and summer tires, intercooler, full turbo back exhaust, Hilton stage 2 tune, and some other bits.

Fun, reliable(ish) and super comfortable. Incredibly tempting to go nuts modding it, but the Supra is still the priority.

2011 Jaguar XK. Bought in late '16 to replace my wife's 2015 VW Jetta turbo diesel after the "clean" diesel scandal came to light.

1999 Land Cruiser. Love that vehicle like crazy. Bought it to be utilitarian, but it's stolen some of my automotive enthusiasm away from the Supra. Factory rear locker, slider steps, armor rear bumper with swingouts, stereo, 33" ATs, sound deadened throughout. It's very quiet and very comfortable and probably is only mid-life at 268k miles. It is slow, though. Very slow. Makes the relatively stock '91 Supra feel like a rocket-ship in comparison.

Land Cruisers are awesome, I can see why its getting some attention

My other ride is a '91 MR2 turbo, 88K miles. It's my weekend driver.

And my MK3 Supra is currently my DD because I recently sold my SUV of 14 years, a 2003 Tahoe Z71. I'm currently looking into a similar, full-sized replacement and a Toyota Sequoia (2012+ models) is at the top of the list. Anyone have one? The thing that gets me is that I was expecting a newer SUV would have better gas mileage by now, but a lot of them are exactly the same at around 13 mpg. GM has improved a little, but I don't want another GM product.

Cant speak for the sequoia but my wife currently has a explorer 17 ecoboost and gets about 18 mixed (mostly city) driving. I think its pulls 22ish straight hwy on trips at the right speed.

Most recently working on an old BMW. It's a California car with a completely sealed emission system, the fuel pump permanently mounted in the stainless steel gas tank. It's an $8000 repair at the dealership to replace the fuel pump. It is warrantied for 15 years or 150,000 miles. My car with 186,000 miles, came off the auction block at $200 with this problem. $2000 later, a slightly newer tank installed, and another $2000 on maintenance, and I've got a decent daily driver, as long as the fuel pump holds out :)

I looked into the Ford Expedition and Explorer. I actually like the latest gen Explorer's looks, but it's not for me for other reasons. And the Expedition just isn't too appealing. Last night I started looking into the Lexus GX 460, which might be an option if I decide I can live with the smaller cargo volume it has... and that swing-out door in the rear -- not too into that.

I love the exporer, wish it was a tad bigger with kids now but love everything else, especially the ecoboost engine.

My every day car Mark II JZX90.
Now thats a proper daily!

So for my replacement SUV/DD, a few weeks ago I went with a Lexus: 2014 GX 460 Premium, black on black. Even though it has 94K miles on it, it runs and drives like new. Very solid, very comfortable SUV. As to the spindle grille on the GX platform, I don't love it, but I also don't hate it. On the GX they added it starting with the 2014 model year, and I decided I wanted to get at least that year due to various other upgrades. Quite satisfied with my decision so far. Only thing I've "had" to do is upgrade the nav maps.

My $200 BMW. It just turned 190,000 miles yesterday. This is the one with the stainless steel gas tank with a sealed fuel pump. Pump replacement is an $8000. dealer repair. It was warrantied for 10 years or 150,000 miles. The tank was replace by a shade-tree mechanic after the $2oo purchase. It's not a $200 car... it just cost that to buy :)

Hello,

So, my other car obsessions are a 1988 Merkur Xr4ti and my daily drivers an Audi A3 (Revo Stage II tune with cold air and exhaust).

I have owned the Merkur for 29 years. It started out life as my daily driver. I am the second owner and she has 171,000 miles. I think over the years I have been into most every part of the car. Sometimes just to keep it running, other times to make it “better”. Like an intercooler, new boost controller, head with oversized stainless valves, roller cam, 3” down pipe, hi flow cat to dual 3” tail pipes (no mufflers). This is the original T3 turbo, but it is still good for 18 to 20 psi.

At one time we owned two Merkurs.

My son followed the Merkur that was on the US based TopGear TV show and ended up buying it. It became my sons first car while he was in High School.
I attached some links to articles about the car and some that he wrote. (Proud dad)
