Whats everyone driving now?

It's been a while! What is everyone driving now? Doesn't have to be a sports/performance car. Let's see them!

Good thread IMO!  O0

I find that the older I get, the less I lust after toys like cars and bikes unlike my younger years where I would get a new car and/or bike every other year or have multiple cars and bikes in my stable at once. It's probably the "been there, done that" factor...

Currently, I'm still rocking my 2005 Taco 4x4 6-Speed manual. Not looking to sell it or trade it in for a different car any time soon because I may not be able to find another 4x4 with a 6-Speed stick shift again since there's only a handful of 2nd Gen Taco 4WD with a 6-Speed manual tranny in the country the last time I checked.

Still got driving my 2008 corvette.  I has 42k miles and my daily driver.  I also have a 2001 lexus gs300 that I need to register.  I got offers to sell it but I won't.

I have sold most of my toys. Maybe it's getting old that has changed me. Maintaining a car isn't as fun as it used to be. I bought a A90 Supra about 3 yrs ago and its sitting in my garage collecting dust. I still have my S2000 from the old Pebhmong days when it was hoppin in these automotive threads, and EVERYTHING on the road seemed to be getting beat by that CRX guy in here.  ;D  Driving a 24 Toyota GH and a 06 RX400h.

Hoping to get into a Porsche or Lotus down the road here sometime. My interest has shifted from racing to road trips. I enjoy traveling in a sports car. I have driven the Supra from MN to AR and back. It was an amazing experience. Much better than my usual Maplewood to Duluth or MN to WI. I hope to map the states soon.  O0

FYI, the hmong corvette club is coming to NC during father's day and meet up at the NC HNY.  I think they're going to tail of dragon as well.

I think so in my case. I remember at a point in my life, I had 3 autos and 2 motos at once during my single status younger days.

I've never enjoy maintaining my autos and motos but I do it to save money, time and most importantly, I know it's done right so for peace of mind.

I enjoyed accessorizing my toys though.

I'm not sure how active he is now but I'm sure Killboy will be there to capture some Hmong driving a Corvette:




I took this photo when I was at Deals Gap:

He's active.  He took pictures of my corvette years ago on Blue Ridge along with a group other hmong car enthusiasts.

I saw some videos on facebook. Seems like the Hmong Corvette Club had an amazing turnout. Those guys roll deep.
