Mine is a weekend toy. It sure is nice coming home and opening the garage door and see it sitting there waiting to go out for a drive :buhbye:

I flip back and forth during the late spring/summer/early fall between the vette and my motorcycle. When its raining I take the beater, so I guess its kind of a daily driver.

Actually about half and half. I'll drive it to work a couple of days a week. Some weeks every day, Some weeks not at all. Depends on morning attitude.

Mine is a toy, Once in a while I will use it for work, I drive alot of miles for work so I try not to make a habbit out of it. Its more fun if you dont drive it everyday, gives you something to look forward to.

I bought it to drive everyday, but since then I have decided that it is much too nice a car to subject to Kansas weather 365 days a year. I have a Durango, but the wife claims it is her's (Funny, I make the payment on it :rolleyes: ) So that left me with a predicament. I was searching for a "beater" to basically drive on crappy days and to go fishing with. I ended up with the deal of a lifetime (I think anyways)

Here is a picture of my "beater" that I paid only $2500 for. And yes, it is as perfect as it looks. It's a 1995 "Country" edition Cherokee

Daily driver here.

My wife allowed me to trade her daily driver in on my vert which meant she took my daily driver. That means my vert is my daily driver.........until fall. Then I have to buy her a new daily so I can have mine back while the vert goes into hibernation.

I used to have a 84 vette for daily driving, but the weather in The netherlands is often too bad. So I use my 86 vette for hollyday car and a little bit as weekend toy. On the other site, its very crouwdy here, too much traffic. When I drive my vette in the hollydays, i have some free space out here :D

Both of my Vettes are more summertime toys. I seldom get them out during the winter because by wife and I both have other cars. Also I have two 4WD trucks that I drive more in the winter (and leave parked in the summer). It's really tough to decide between two corvettes, a cadillac, and a GMC Sierra SLE.;)
