Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
He was amazed (to the point he thought I was bordering on mad) that I'm looking to get an Ultima GTR. I understand it's not particularly practical, but it's not like I have to commute in it, and (thank god) no kids to shift around. Also my current car is a VX220 so that's not exactly the epitomy of practicality itself.
Anyway I was just thinking, what does everyone here drive and why?
I would love to buy a Porsche as, contradictory to what someone wrote, they are practical if there is only two agile people to get in it. They are amazing to drive and excellent value for money when compared to other top-end sports cars.
Unfortunately for me at least they are too expensive here in Thailand. Even the 325i costs silly money when compared to many countries in Europe etc.
The BM's are nice but a porsche would be heaven on wheels. I have never not had fun driving one.
Added in: You guys in Europe and the US have it easy when it comes to the prices of luxury and top-end sports cars. I am very jealous.

Fair sized inbetween the big suvs and the crossovers. Gets fair gas mileage and with it v8 it has plenty of room between the bottom of the pedal the floor board when needed. We looked at the beamer X's, and the Lexus boxes, but I wanted to remain mentioned in the family will ;-) so I bought american. Point for point, I found the Lincoln a great car. More than anything, with little eleanor in the back seat, it feels safer than anything I've ever driven.
For my day to day and hauling the lad's bass about these days, the primary is an old 89 burban. Well, the hull's an 89, everything else is post 95. Acquired this ride from a chap who was rebuilding for his mum until he discovered she had zero interest in the beast. Her lack of interest happened right about the same time I was needing another vehicle. Between the scouting stuff, orchestra stuff, and occasional other child haulking adventures, it's been a right fair decision.
Why? I'm a fanatic for unique 2 seat sportscars. This is actually a Mercedes with a Chrysler body on it. ;)
Recently Test Driven? 2007 Lotus Exige
I've got that new car itch. Happens once every 30-36 months.
Actually I'm thinking to revitalise my youth and buy a motorcycle, but guess it's down the priority list as a selfish proposition.
Not a big fan of showing off either - which is why i don't drive the Mercedes. Nice car though - I guess i could get used to it :)
Lawman - Manual - I need all the exercise i can get after seeing this: [webmasterworld.com...]

i had a vx220 till november when i put it into 2 hedges and wrecked it good and proper.
The ultima would probably just as practical as that apart from the ground clearance.
link to broken car :-(
I am now driving an audi a3 - how boring!
because I am a miser, and it was free?
228,000 miles and going strong. I'll take it to 350K if I can.
If not, I'll start my midlife crisis and buy a convertible Porsche to keep in my garage all winter.... and find another 4WD bomber.
Why: A new customer needed software to bundle with their hardware and I needed a new car. He offered the S430 after I had admired it on the drive to lunch. I was driving a 1993 MBZ SEL 380 that I had bought in 1994.
I'm looking for a used hybrid with the California HOV stickers on it to use the car-pool lanes. When the state stopped issuing the stickers seems like the price on used ones with the stickers are more then a new.
