    What do you drive?

    I drive a 2017 Honda Accord (my 4th Honda, not including my wife's CRV, daughters Civic, and sons Accord. LOL)

    For 3 years prior to this purchase, I drove this Camaro (all shined up in my driveway). Fun car, but I had 75,000 miles on it and it was starting to act up.

    Post pics of your car or even your dream car. I'm a Vette guy (sold my 74 Stingray about 5 years ago) and dream of buying another one day.

    Current ride 2012 Civic, all stock. Trying to save up to rice rocket it a little.

    I wish I had the means to own a large garage filled with imports and luxury cars.

    I bought it new and have always been really close to things. Lived a block from campus at SDSU before I graduated and now I live 2-3 blocks from work in San Diego so I don't have to drive a lot. I only have 59,000 miles on it.

    2010 Lexus IS250. First car I bought after a few years working at my job. I now have 118k miles on it already, I drive a lot.

    I have a reservation for the Tesla Model 3. Can't wait for that thing (and to save on gas).

    I roll with public transportation in a foreign land, and occasionally a mountain bike. Strangely I'm ok with it too.

    Bump.

    I recently had a 2017 Mercedes E43 AMG. Power, luxury, perfection....

    Until last week when I bought a 2021 Tesla. Very comparable to my AMG, but I'm saving $600 a month in gas. 0 to 60 in 3 seconds and quiet as a mouse. Driving it is so much fun. I never use my gas pedal. I doubt I ever own a different brand.

    I recently bought a 2021 Mazda Mazda CX-30. It's a turbo, which I originally did not want but decided to get because it drives like a dream on the windy mountain roads. Love all the bells and whistles in this car.

    Our other car is an older 2004 Toyota Rav 4, which we are going to dump after we move and replace it with an electric vehicle. Hopefully by the time we buy, it will be a bit more competitive in the electrical vehicle field.

    Rav 4 hold their value like a champ.
