Let's see your 'other' vehicle

Most of us don't daily drive our mustangs, so what do you drive when you're not driving your mustang?

I bought this last fall as more or less a winter beater but I really kinda like it. Big, comfy, reliable, 30 mpg, other than being a gm vehicle, what's not to like?

2003 Toyota Highlander. Cheap, comfy, decent MPG, it'll run forever, great for camping and completely invisible to Johnny Law. Its kind of the perfect daily IMO.


The anvil of reality.

How in the WORLD does that big monster get 30 mpg @New2me? Downhill? Tailwind?

I daily drive a little tiny light weight '98 Saturn SL with 'economy gearset' 5 sp manual transmission, picked it up last year with only 55k miles so 'nearly new' and runs well, but according to my iphone's calculator, I struggle to get 30 mpg....

Other daily is a '02 GMC Sierra 2500 HD Duramax/Allison lifted on 35's, that one DEFF doesn't get half of 30 mpg!

His Buick's mileage doesn't surprise me.
Back in the day when I was working for GM corporate I had a company car (1997 Olds Cutless SL)
that regularly hit 32 mpg. Also had the coldest AC I can recall for an early 134a vehicle. On a separate
gauge, I had the interior down around 34 degrees in the middle of the desert one summer.

5.0L - Coyote all the way, same as I had in my 2012. I also have the ROUSH Exhaust and cold air intake. Sounds great but wife says a bit too loud :-)

It hasn't looked this good in a while. Quite a while. I have since swapped to some nicer BBS style wheels though. Beat upon heavily. Has touched upon 61 mpg (turbodiesel).


Bought with a dead 5.0. I pulled the 5.0 out of my '67, re-EFI'd it, and shoved it in. Yuck. Yanked it out in favor of a 5.8. Much better. One tire fires got to be an annoyance so I put in a 3.55 Trac-Loc. Better. Headers and full dual exhausts , even better. Spends it's time equally dividepgd between idling down the road or being terribly abused, overloaded, puling stuff or some such.


Two years ago I gave a whole $200 for generic little white '97 Caravan with no reverse. Bought a "core" transmission for $20, combined the two and made one good one. Intended to roll it over for a small profit or something. But it's just too handy. Everybody drives it. I tell them "Don't worry if it blows up, I can crush it and still turn a profit!" But everything works on it and it just keeps going. After seeing it survive the first year I actually started taking care of it. Some. No pictures, everybody knows what they look like.
