Daily 2006 VW Jetta. I don't fit in most cars so that narrowed the list a good bit when shopping.

For fun 1981 yamaha xj650. Though I don't ride it as much as I used to.

Those 7.3's are bulletproof. We have a 94 f350 dually with the 7.3, and the things it's towed...oh my. Hubs also has a "f250" with the 7.3 that's our yard art/eventually rock crawler....thing's got over 600k miles on that engine (he's had that particular engine in quite a few of his vehicles lol)

My car is a 98 Volvo v70 t5...wagon life for me.
I had a new car back in the mother country lol. Bought a brand new 2012 Mazda 3 - after too many times of my other (98 s70 sedan version of the car I drive now - I'm a sucker for punishment) car leaving me stranded it was nice to not have to worry about would I get home - and the 40mpg was phenomenal.

Hubs also has a couple other Volvos - 94 940 "offroadvo" and a 82 242 (more yard art. Between him blowing up the engine and California smog rules...)

And an international of some variety we're converting into a toterhome.

We may have a problem. And may put some dmv kiddies through college.

I love a good wagon, before the 2005 Sierra purchase in 2009 I was driving mid 90s Caprice and Roadmaster wagons for years, awesome blend of a 1970s chassis with a 1990s engine.  If willing to sit against the steering wheel 4x8 sheet goods fit with the tailgate closed and the LT1 engine made instant torque to keep those big old boats fun to drive.  Last one I got rid of had 299,600miles on it and ran and drove fine, had a couple of tranny swaps but engine was original.

 

Sitting in the garage I have the remains of a 1996 Caprice Sedan that 5 years ago was a 500hp street/strip car.

I drive a 2014 Subaru Legacy, gets great gas mileage, goes good in the snow, looks great and is fun to drive.

My DH drives a 1999 F250 diesel. And then we also have a 1998 Suzuki Sidekick. Awesome little SUV, great gas mileage and goes anywhere in 4x4!

I have an oldddd Honda Accord. It's a 1997. It's served me well but I'm looking forward to leasing something new in about a year.
