When I raced I commented by bicycle from Santa Cruz to Gilroy to work, 35 miles up and over the Santa Cruz mountains. Much later, after my uneventful racing career, I commuted by this, much shorter distance.
Almost bought one back in the day. Also looked at the Porches 914 (6 cylinder) but stayed with our 142E. Cool car you have there.
@radd .. That’s an Amazing bike!! I hope to own a newer bike soon or upgrade group set to 105. My shifters are shot..
Im lucky to ride the hills Palos Verdes...beautiful area. Considering my first century.
I drive a 2007 Ford work van 6 days a week but on Sunday I take out the garage Queen....
I'll use a stock photo because it's too dark to get a picture of mine right now, but it looks identical...a Kia Soul in as close to Gretsch orange as I could get. It's surprisingly large on the inside with the rear seats folded down. I can get an upright bass, electric, amp, stands, and a PA loaded into it and still have room for a passenger.
I'd say this was my daily driver, but I don't have anywhere to drive to these days, so it's my daily parker. I used to play in a band called The Whitey O'Kane Band (named after the lead singer). So of course, I had to nickname this Whitey O'Van. It's a 2012 E-350 Extended passenger van, and 19.7 feet long. I took out the back 2 rows of seats to accommodate my guitar rig and the full band PA. Plus 8 people if need be. Everything's on dollies or rolling racks (except the people), and I roll them in and out on telescoping ramps. I bought eye-bolts the same size as the seat base bolts and strap everything down with ratchet straps. After a couple of dark load-outs, I put a bunch of LED strip lights in, which addressed the issue quite handily.
But when I did have a job, if I didn't drive this, this was my daily driver shown here without the panniers that carry my work clothes when I'm riding:
But this is my favorite mode of transport (aside from the van):
My daily ride is just a common Japanese jelly bean with wheels. My preferred daily ride is a little more fun.
It is summer so till it is cold this is the daily
With a lil 2 wheel throwin in
I also have a 2013 sonic but only drive it when I have to.

Pardon me would you have any Grey Poupon ?
The dually if I have to haul something. The Vette if I don't.
And a small history of the little changes I've made since the 90s.
My Challenger is an SXT with a V6... so while it's not as cool as a Hemi R/T or SRT, it's a practical daily driver. I love the retro styling, and it's given me a little over 50,000 miles of smiles in the 8 years I've owned it.
Great looking ride, and any Challenger is "cool" in my book.
I always say that they are a "smile every mile."
