2002 Kawasaki ZR-7S. I haven't owned a car for about 11 years, just rent one when needed. I have been checking out old Ford trucks, though, because it is just fun to drive a pick-em-up!

I drive a Mazda RX8 because it drives Perfectly. It's the perfect budget sports car for me and my family.

I also drive a Subaru Legacy GT because when the roads get snowy, blizzaks on all four corners make the car nearly unstoppable. Plus, beating cars that 'seem' faster (Domestic V8s, etc) is awesome. Love that feeling. Car has about 375hp now, after a few mods.

I also drive a F150SCrew 4x4 on 33" tires (truck is leveled, not lifted) because it's small enough to fit in parking garages, makes a serviceable transport when snow gets too deep for the subaru, and hauls me and my family's stuff for road trips. When the zombies attack, we'll take the truck.

1989 GMC 2500 4X4 Extended Cab 454 Gas Burner with 512k on the odometer...is my BABY. I would drive this truck to Alaska tomorrow, and KNOW she'd get me home.

2011 GMC 2500 Heavy Duty Crew Cab Duramax 4X4....this is the one my wife MADE me buy last year claiming my old truck was too damned old to trust.

I drive a 1969 3/4 ton Chevy. Why? because its paid for, can haul anything I need, I only work 3 miles from home so the MPG isnt to be of a concern. I can also fix everything with basic tools, and for it being 15 years older then me it runs great.

All my vehicles belong to our company so I keep them simple right now in in an 06 GMC Sierra regular cab short bed I may buy a new one next year or just keep it until I really need to replace it.

AMG C63, Renntech tuned, once in a while now. Trying to preserve it.
Lots of power, for me, anyway. Would like the new 15 and final 6.3 version the 507 hp coupe. Soon a memory.
My old reliable, Sadie, 05 F150 5.4. Only things done to it are coil packs and plugs. 189,000 miles. I'm going to keep her and refresh her.
I like dependable and faithful. her and my dog can always be counted on.
