    Live and work in Nassau county. Leave to work at the 2nd rush hour traffic (8:30-9) and rush hour home (5:30-6:30). Oh and don't forget the 1000's of stop signs and traffic lights. Drivers get worse here on the Island; not me of course :D

    Weekend track toy only. :headbang:

    Actually can not imagine it as a DD. When I was younger (knew everything and was immortal), I drove sports cars like this for DD. Very low and stiff. Had to drive around speed bumps. I love my new DD, which is a 15 CTSV coupe. Crazy fast, but oh so comfy. :D

    Haha it's crossed my mind. But it's paid off and it holds a sentimental spot for me and someday passing it on to my kid would mean a lot to me. One other reason for not making any kind of move atm is we're looking at buying a house and using our current one (which is a renovated cabin on the edge of the Daniel Boone National Forest) as a weekend/vacation rental. So I would really like to do that first.

    100% agree!

    Don't mind this guy ^^^^^ Norm, he drives a geo lol

    Exactly what I try to tell ole dwalker up there all the time. His only response is "blah blah blah ROCK CHIPS blah blah putting miles on a Mustang is BAD blah blah blah."
    I don't get it, but to each their own.



    PS; Sorry Buddy (DWalker) ;) lol

    Be careful Norm... there are some that don't or hardly do that and you may hurt their feelings. You know... garage ornaments. ;)

    I fully agree with you though... some of you guys may recall the first vid (at the reception) of the GT350 Track Attack school where Henry Ford III also suggested to drive it, hard.... drive it like you stole it! :D

    From my primary residence directly to my office is 132 miles. It's 120 miles from home to my place up near work. Work is 35 miles from my second home. then 120 miles home so in one week I put on about 700-750 miles a week when I go into the office. I'll admit this is probably my last week of bringing my GT350 to work until April of next year as I live at 2100' so we will start getting snow soon. I use our Escape during the winter.

    I have a second home too and my situation is similar to you. I average about 400 miles a week. Fortunately, I'll start working at home next year with occasional trips to office so my miles will be greatly cut down.

    Track car and occasional driver. Maybe 3 times a week and at least 4 planned track events a year. So far only one track day and missed my 3rd and 4th due to the engine failure. : (

    Not my commuter but I drive it almost daily. As soon as I get home from work, I take it out for a cruise. It's my stress reliever. Even just slow, calm cruising through the backroads for an hour.

    Good to see these cars being used as dailys and not as some trophy in the garage.
