What do you drive as your daily driver when you're not working on PCs

2013 Subaru BRZ. Fun little car, like to take it into the mountain roads near me. Lets see if I can find a picture of it.

I loved mine, best car I'd ever owned. anything with corners it was on rails until you gave it a little too much and the back end would gently loosen off. Nothing drives like it. 

I just want to know what do people hear within the Tech community drive as their daily vehicle or just fun vehicle on the weekend or so when they're not working on computers or gaming or using their computers as workspace or working? 

 

Me: 1976 Dodge Charger SE 

You can't go wrong with a Chrysler 400 cubic inch V8 engine and three speed automatic transmission and luxury appointments to go along with it and with torsion bar suspension. With AM/FM stereo and heating and air conditioning. Two-door hardtop with a half vinyl landau roof. And the cheapest generation Dodge Charger you can buy. And with many Tech options to go with this car that it had at the time. Fit up to six people in this car.

then it was a Fiat 124 Spyder which also did the car show/festival rounds

1997 Audi Cabriolet 2.0 (b4)
280.000km on the clock and had basically no issues.

The top squeeks a bit, the struts need replacing and the antenna broke off because an eagle decided to fly into it at 130kph.

Edit:
I'm thinking about buying a BMW E34 Touring with the 2.5l inline 6-cylinder for hauling stuff and as an Autobahn cruiser.

Not sure tho... :s

I have to let the side down with a 2003 Vauxhall Astra, but won’t post a pic so hopefully people will skip over this comment and keep looking at the actually good cars

You have such a beautiful car!

 

I’m a Brit so don’t get to see cars like this often, but it looks gorgeous.

Nothing fancy. Still driving my first car... a 2002 Ford FIesta mk4 in its latest iteration:

Spoiler

Not my photo, mine doesn't have the doors at the back. For the rest, it's pretty spot on. 200.000+km and 'she' doesn't seem to care.
Still going with everything stock (besides normal maintenance) except for the radiator and front bumper that have been replaced because of a crash (not my fault).
I was planning to buy something more powerful shortly, but honestly, I don't want to be the one that stops her.
It's nothing special, but this was my parents' car and a lot of memories came with it.

Didn't work lol

We had the 2004-2011 series in the family. Very reliable.

 

@BenTreece1987 nice ride! I'm a sucker for American and Japanese cars, and that looks good!

It was slow, soft suspension and a great cruising/roadtrip car. Super comfortable, and only quick between 40-100km/h after that it was very difficult to deal with the lack of power. 

 

For the brz, according to a witness the guy swapped lanes like 3 times before running a stale red straight into me without slowing down at all. Spun the brz 180deg and slid it into the center lane, completely shattered his front end and hit hard enough to split my subframe. Everyone was fine except the cars. Very lucky for all the airbags, the whole side and front of the interior was covered.
