OK - I'll bite - at the risk of some good natured ribbing, currently have a fleet of three that represents the traditional US manufacturers - Chrysler, Ford and GM:
1994 Chrysler LeBaron Convert - my summer car - topless when desired.

2002 Ford Windstar [Canadian/American] - normal daily driver, hauler, tow vehicle and people hauler - suffers through the salt and slush of MN winters.

2004 Chev Malibu - wife's daily driver and long trip vehicle.

Both the Windstar and the Malibu have "power adjustable pedals" - a feature that has disappeared from most "reasonably" priced vehicles in recent years - so may have these for quite some time. Wife needs pedals extended and steering forward!!

Lot of other vehicles over the years but would like to bring back my 1969 Buick Skylark GS 400 Convert in restored condition - it was special!!

Now I will duck and run for cover!! swing

Don't worry. I don't think anyone posting has been judgmental.
Aren't you glad we live in free countries where we can pretty much do, say, and buy anything we want?
Try that in N. Korea, China, etc.

I have a 2008 Chev Impala...why? Because I work at a GM Dealership and my boss gave me a great deal...also, I have leg room and it is a great cruiser on the highway.

I think that it is self evident why I have this car -- my daily cage ride is a restored & customized 1974 VW Type 181 (The Thing). I bought it in 1998 as a woefully neglected orange hulk. After about 3 years and 2500 hours of my labor later, it looked like this: http://www.thetrinitytrike.com/diy/thingamabob/ThingaMaBob.html

Mmmm! I like them.
I rode past a place in France that restores them, 2CVs, Renault 4s and so on - there was a line of 20 or more parked in front of the unit.
Bliss!

Chrysler PT Cruiser convertible...gets driven year-round, but best right about now because I can drop the top...we like to get in it and run to the coast with the top down. My wife likes it because she doesn't ride with me on the bike, but likes the wind and view.

She drives an '07 Toyota RAV. This is an excellent vehicle with all options except all wheel drive...we really don't need AWD and didn't feel the need to pay for it and then have to maintain it. We've taken the RAV on several long distance jaunts to Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho and the PNW. On one occasion, we had a Yakima roof pod on the car when we took my daughter to college in Colorado. We ran I-80 for most of that and with three of us, the car piled full of junk, the pod full and speeds of 75-80 most of the way, the RAV averaged about 29 mpg with the V6. It actually gets equal or better mileage around town than the PT. Great car and we'll be keeping it for a long time.

I have a 2005 Ford Ranger Edge V6 (small one) that I occasionally use.
I only put 2k miles on it last year. Nice when its raining.
Most of my miles are on 2 wheels. S'wing and VTX1300.

This year I may put more miles on the truck since back and knee are acting up.

Off to get new battery for S'wing. Yuasa this time. Last one (not Yuassa) only lasted one year. What a waste of money. It's still under 1 year warranty, will see wwhat they say.
Then off for a lunch run and FUN.

The wife drives a 2010 Grand Caravan. It's quite useful for family things, hauling around the kids and their playmates, her Daisy troop, and such. Me? The Silverwing is my main ride nearly all the time. We also have my SYM HD200 which my wife has just taken an interest in riding herself, but really prefers riding two up with me (my vote too he he). The dog either rides in the Caravan or with me on my third bike - a 1977 BMW R100/7 with Hannigan faring and custom windshield using a Velorex sidecar. I just bought that last summer when I was home for my two week mid-tour leave from Aghanistan and am only now teaching myself how to ride it. Sidecars are a whole different animal.

Gotta love sidecars -- left turns like a go cart; right turns like an 18-wheeler. But great fun regardless.
