The Sky is our third car, but it has become a daily driver. My car is also a two seater so the SUV is used for only hauling or shopping.

I intend to share time between my Kawasaki Concours motorcycle and my R/L when it comes in. Not sure yet which one I'll be able to pack more stuff into.

But I think I'll be able to put more on my bike.

But I have other vehicles around the house for trips to the store etc...

the kids can have the other saturn, i however am driving the sky

just bought my sky today! joy, joy, happy dance ensues! not selling the other car, which is a saturn ion (and the hubby has a sky also). the son just turned 16 and seems to always have the car, so i am left without anything (cause it ain't like the hubby is going to let his sky out from under his grubby little hands for anyone, even if i did get it for him). now that one of the two teenagers can drive, i no longer have to drive a soccer-mobile everywhere! i can now drive around a sexy little hot mama car. kinda reminds me of the song "jessies mom has got it going on!" now it will be "andrew's mom has got a sexy car!" needless to say i am still giddy over getting the car today.

I realize my mistake on jumping the gun, so to speak, after seeing and reading your thread about picking it up Monday. And as to being a Southern boy I moved to Huntsville, Alabama when I was 14 years old. Of course I tant left it unless you count Uncle Sam and the draft back during the 60's. Kinda hard to argue when your draft number is 18 out of the first 30 numbers....Skip...

I have a 66 T-Bird, but my Sky is my only driver car. I'll rent a car if I need anything larger.

My Sky is on its way to me. I can hardly wait. It will be my only car, although my husband has an SUV if we need it for transporting purposes.

Knowing that my Sky wouldn't be here for a couple of weeks, I put my car up for sale. I figured it would take a few weeks to sell. It sold in under 1 hour! It was a '97 SL2. I had it for 10 years, so it was sad to see it drive away. So, hubby and I are sharing a vehicle until my Sky arrives.

When do I get to play with my Redline?

Well, only on the sunny days and lately that is only on the weekends.

My rain/snow car is my 2001 Turbo Beetle. I also have a 2002 Eurovan which is my soccer/party van for group events or hauling stuff to the dump.

Which car do I like to drive the most? I am not telling the wife or the insurance man.
