Roadster/Small RWD Market/Other Vehicle General DiscussionDiscussion about owning, loving, lusting, or coveting roadsters and other small RWD'rs and "other" general vehicle discussion. Competitive vehicles, other "cool drives" and other discussion related to the ownership experience.
A few weeks after I bought the car, the wife and I went to the store together. We were going through and filling up the cart...got about halfway through the store when I looked at the items in the cart....looked at the wife....and then it dawned on me...."Oh crap"!
Well, did you get all the crap in the car?? Or did you leave her behind and take the brews & chow home??

On that topic, I don't see how anyone can say they are not a good daily driver. I bought mine 2 1/2 years ago and it is my only car. She had a little under 8000 miles on her when I got her, now almost 36,000. I can see how people up north though could not do it. I live in Nashville, don't get too much snow, none really last year, but the year before we got a couple of good snows. Let me tell ya, Stinger does not enjoy the snow, lol I was born and raised in Michigan and for most the winters I drove a 71 firebird, so I know my way around snow with a rear wheel drive. Stinger slipped and slid everywhere, with good tires. Driving to work was fun to say the least. Luckily I go in at 5am so no traffic to deal with and 2 days at a time was all I had to deal with. Other than that, I love driving my car daily, been to Michigan and Florida, no problem fitting what I needed in the trunk.

Would love to drive but work too much....
Never bought it as a daily driver.
Just wanted it.
Still love looking at it....
I'm on vacation and driving a rented Chrysler 200 convertible. It has a little more trunk space than the SKY, but not much, and the back seat is just for looks. Top operation is pretty neat though. Push a button and the deck lids comes up, top cover extends, top goes into the trunk, and lid closes. Reverse operation for top up.

My trading mine for a 2008 Corvette Convertible had nothing to do with trunk space. The Corvette has a large trunk but I don't need it. I must admit getting a power top was a strong point in the decision. But not trunk space.
