Well my 81 corolla is my daily driver as its the most practicle car ive got, having 4 doors and a boot, the 1300 engine is good on fuel, it falls into the UKs cheap tax bracket (under 1500cc) and cheap classic car insurance!!
Its also my Showy car and its the one that gets polished 8) I never have a "normal" car, even as a daily!!!
(its has more done to it since this photo :D )

Image


The main reason I got the corolla (other than it was cool) was to save me driving this as my daily which drank fuel and chewed tyres..............

Image

Unfortunately the Silvia got writen off last November and I am currently reshelling all the parts to make a full drift/track car!! 8) I wouldnt have been able to do this if I didnt have another cheap daily driver!!
(Yes I now have 2 nissans :lol:)

Image


Oh and I cant forget my summer fun car can I............ This needs no explaining!!!! ..................or maybe it does!! :lol:

Previous daily driver, F-I-N-A-L-L-Y put it up for sale [buying a house soon, plus planning on getting a HSV VE Clubsort next - G8 with an LS3 to you yanks ;)]

S15 Nissan 200SX/Silvia Spec S GT. FMIC, 14psi, full exhaust - made 180rwkw. Awesome fun to drive, but can be tiring in the wet when you just want to get home and it just wants to play

Image

Image

Currently daily - 78 Isuzu Gemini with a G200 EFI DOHC under the bonnet. 75kw/100hp @ wheels untuned, should make more once the Haltech is played with.

Image

Image

Winter is coming. Wet road, light, rwd, gonna be fun :D

I think I win for oldest constant daily driver. Both of my cars are '69s, one from Japan, the other from Italy.

The original daily driver:
Image

and the nice daily driver. Its got nice things like a top that doesn't leak (even though its a newer top) , a stereo, a heater, a nice interior, and best of all nice paint.

My 1969 Alfa Romeo 105.51 GTV. One of 640 US spec cars built, only about 70 or so survive that I know of.
Image

I do use the roadster for a daily driver even though its 95% race car now, but it tends to attract police like a doughnut shop. I've only been stopped once, but they like to follow closely behind waiting for me to do something stupid. It gets really hot in the summer, damp in the winter, and I can't see where I'm going if I get in the car wet when it rains. That and a locking rear diff makes for fun stuff in the rain. I learned how to drive in it set up this way so everything else feels weird to drive in the rain.

Not three months after selling my last AW11 daily driver, I find myself back behind the wheel of yet another one!

the specs start off identical to my previous MR2: '87 J-spec facelift, G-Limited, t-top manual... but that's where the similarities end, because here's the best part - this one's a super charger model with LSD gearbox and pulley upgrade :D

Here's a photo of it at a recent trackday, where it ran quite competitively until the S/C belt started slipping. Then the flexi on the exhaust blew out, and now it sounds like a tractor, hah!

Been driving this old crock again since winter, not an Australian-built Sigma (though we did get those here as Lonsdales - long story) but a Japanese-built Galant:
Image

Before it went back on the road, it had a new clutch, new back box and the grotty rear strut tops welded up. Also a few cosmetics - bits of paint etc. Rear arches look lovely now and the doorframes are blacked out. Have done a few thousand miles since and it hasn't complained, has an oil leak but I just top it back up every week or so. I could get it seen to, but I'm replacing the 1.6 Saturn and 4-speed with a 2.0 Astron and 5-speed hopefully later this year, so I don't want to spend too much on this engine if I can avoid it. Then again with the amount I'm spending on oil it might work out cheaper!

How on earth could you trade a Silvia for a Commonwhore? :P

This made me giggle. This thought crosses my mind with the Bluebird at least twice a week... :mrgreen:

My daily driver is a HDPIC Galloper II 2,5 TCI Wagon Exceed from 2000 :tu: .

Image

Image

It is a lightly modified Mitsubishi Pajero/Montero/Shogun/Dodge Raider (1982 - 1991), produced under license by a division of the big Hyundai company. They bought the production lines from Mitsubishi after the production of the Pajero L040 was stopped and produced it under license. In 1998, the Galloper I got a major facelift and was produced as Galloper II until 2002. I like it a lot, very comfortable car. Quite economical too, it needs ~ 11 litres Diesel on 100km.

Easy. Me and the Shitvia have a very love-hate relationship, which is currently firmly in the hate zone. Actually, come to think of it, its abit like my ex gf....

Besides, LS3 > SR20DET. Edit and exhaust should net me a low 12 day-in-day-out, plus its about time i grew up and got something with abit of practicality....

...that said. Refer to comments about playing in the wet - LS3 and RWD should be real fun haha

my daily for the last 4 years or so is my 98 nissan frontier. it had low miles when i got it, and i really have done nothing to do it except change the oil. i was always so busy with other cars, and it was so reliable i never did a thing to it. well it caught up, been having small problems for the last 3 months or so, and with my scheldule it has been sitting, while i drive the b210 daily. is it a good thing or bad when you have so many cars, that when you need a new alternator it takes you 2 months to fix it.
