Not sure if Ive posted here b4 but if I did, things have changed.

My SS is my "drive whenever I want" car. I drive a '08 Charger R/T Hemi as my dd. Its nice being able to preserve my Camaro for a fun car and always show ready. She has 4k miles so far. Def makes me appreciate the beast she is. Charger is nice but its a p*ssycat compared to my SS.

I bought a garage queen...1,100 mi on a 2010??

Now I put 24mi per day, nothing outrageous, but Im going to probably get a hooptie for winter so this will be a nov-feb garage queen..but for good reason. Cant see salt eat it up.

With gas over here at over $2 a litre, mine is definitely not a daily driver. Drive a 2012 Volvo V60 diesel that drinks less than 1/3rd as much as a DD.

I didn't imagine I'd need to drive 56 miles round trip each day when I bought it but that is how it turned out. I am a programmer and I work with team members in NY, Minnesota and Texas. For years working from home has been an option I used because I did not work with anyone in my office. About a year ago that changed. I am expected in the office (in NC) so I can get on the phone and work with team members in NY, Minnesota and Texas.

I did my time with the daily commute, 10 years in NYC, when my days ran from 5:30AM to getting home at 7:00PM. I know most jobs don't get a choice but in my current job it really does not matter where you are located. When I drive in I completely waste 1 hour a day.

I renewed my satellite radio and at least I am in a car I enjoy.

DD, but that's not every Mon-Fri as I work a lot from home.
How can we fairly starve the world from the regular opportunity to loosen their Jaws :-O :-)
