Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Given the choice I'd drive an old (read 'really cheap) minivan, but my wife won't allow anything old and rusted in the driveway. A $2500 car would be fine with me, gets from point A to point B just as well as lawman's 500hp shelby :).
Next purchase though: A volvo suv. Wife wants 'safe' as a priority when the kids start to drive, and I need something big enough to tow the toys.
Now when I think about replacing my Prius, everything else is a gas guzzler and I can't bring myself to buying something else :-) The longer I keep it the more money I save, well that's what I'm telling myself.
I also like to "tinker" with cars

i did rent a shelby from hertz in the usa for 3 weeks with my brother last year, it was almost brand new, less than 1000 miles on the clock when we got it, we drove around the South West and clocked up more than 5,000 miles it was great fun.
Swanny, sounds like you need a Tesla so you can stop guzzling all that gas.
My car is a Honda Insight, gas/electric hybrid. I love it, but I work at home so it often gets driven only once or twice a week.
My husband drives a Ford half-ton with 4WD that's five or six years old. It's our vehicle of choice in snowy conditions, but when the roads are clear I prefer my car, because the gas mileage is so much better.
I drive a 92 Buick Regal because it was only $2800 with 32,000 miles. It was in accident but it was fixed and they had pictures, all minor stuff. Ran excellent for 3 years and smooth as glass at 120 on the highway. :)
Considering I had my last Buick until it had 200K I should be good for another decade. Last one was just beat up, still ran great.
I have to admit, i'm missing the performance vehicles for everyday use. I guess it'll just have to be on the track from now on.
Let me know when you're on this side of the pond again. You can spend a few days at my house. A dragstrip is about 13 miles away. I'll make sure you get your performance fix. :)
