What kind of car do you drive when you're not on the sportbike?

This question was suggested by Hethj7 (Jason) Thanks for the great suggestion!

I have a 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GS-T. It's a convertible with a turbo in it. Very fun little car if you have to be in a cage.

I have a '99 Acura Integra GS-R. I had a 92 Corrado VR6 which was way better, but it wasn't reliable anymore. I wanted a Type R, but they didn't bring them to the States last year.

Anyway, it gets 33+mpg on the highway and runs like a top w/ 37,000 miles on it. The only problem is super (which the 10:1 compression ratio demands) is $1.63 or higher.

And no, it's not lowered, and doesn't have a muffler the size of a coffee can on it.

My Dad lets me drag the bike around by his Caravan. It's a cool bike transport.

1999 Mercury Cougar
It was my 1st Brand new cage...
My only complaint-Mercury, you've got to get a little more HP out of the V6!

My cage is a Nissan Kingcab pickup(1990).Its just a commuting truck,nothing more.So this makes me appreciate my TLR even more as the bike is off the road from nov.-mar.

98K+ miles, not sure of exact miles because odo/speedo quit working. I solved that problem by installing a bike puter, thanks to this forum. Other goodies include: Borla Exhaust, K&N filter, 31" Tires, 12 disc changer, 10 speakers, 3 amps and a crossover.

I have a 91 Acura integra, 154K Km's, starting to rust out, shocks gone and doesn't idle well. But it goes and is farely cheap on gas. Would of had a new car this year but stuck with a loan from previous relationship :mad:, thus no new car (new Celica I was eyeing!)for a couple of years. My bike is the best mode of transportation now for me but is not usuable yet due to winter! :(

I have a '93 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. It is the two door model and is a great highway cruiser. 120K miles and never a minutes worth of trouble with it.

I am going to drive it until it dies so that I can afford newer and faster bikes! :)

I drive a '94 Chevy S-10 Blazer with 74,000miles and the High Outpu 4.3L engine, and my wife drives a '93 Subaru Impreza with 140,000miles. Both cars are great, just wish the Blazer did better on gas especially since I must use high test in it.

1994 Chrysler LHS (luminescient chargold) - boring. Drove it out of the dealer showroom (1st one in Des Moines) Pushing 100k now. I use it to haul the whole family (still have two 17 year olds and a 12 year old at home, plus my 29(?) year old wife). I hate vans and trucks are too rough. The LHS can also tow the bike trailer or all 5 of us plus the family boat to the lake.

I've got a '95 Corvette LT-1 (black on black), which has only made it out of the garage once in the past month, as I'm having too much fun on my Black '00 Speed Triple to bother to take the cover off the 'Vette. I also have a '94 Chevy Pickup for those rare occasions when it rains here in Phoenix.

<LI>99 Land Rover Discovery Series I, green with the usual offroad junk - brush bar, light guards, soon a winch... Offroading is fun, plenty of places to doit here in Arizona, but unfortunately not enough mud here ;)
<LI>95 Saab 900. Its the car to scoot around town. Likely replaced next year with an Audi S4 or A6.
<LI>67 Land Rover Series IIA. The truck Marlin Perkins drove. Cool truck. Restoring it is yet another one of my hobbies (I've lost count how many hobbies I have...)
