RE: What's your wheels?
I got a 2005 Honda Accord just recently - 75K miles on it, lots of cupholders, leather seats, sunroof - yay Big Grin

(1) A relatively cheap Cannondale hybrid. This is my everyday commuting bike. I can ride it in just about any kind of weather and not worry too much about what it's doing to the bike.

(2) A really nice, really expensive Serotta Ottrott. This is for fun rides on weekends in good weather. It's much more pleasurable to ride than the Cannondale, but it's much too valuable for commuting and bad weather.

I have a driver's license, and will occasionally rent a car when I need to, but I haven't owned a car since 1991. That car was a 5-liter Ford Mustang GT. Nice car, but I don't do cars anymore.


I envy the idea of being able to forgo a car. It's not really an option in rural Michigan - especially in the winter.

I do have a single wheel trailer I built for my mt. bike - and it's great to go grocery shopping on it in nice weather (6 miles (one way) to nearest grocery store).

Yeah, winters are tough. I live in the city, so the roads get cleaned up pretty well and pretty quickly after snowstorms, and when it's really bad, work and every other place I need to go is close enough that I can walk -- it just takes an hour or two.

I have one of those trailers for grocery shopping. A friend gave it to me a few years back, and now I wonder how I ever managed without it. I used to have to put everything in my backpack, and make several trips if I needed a lot of stuff.

So - what do you drive?

Girly don't drive. I got people for that. Tongue

RE: What's your wheels?
2011 HHR - no bells or whistles, was a rental before I bought it. 80K miles. Decent on gas and short wheel base so it maneuvers really well - much better than you would think.

Seats in the back lay down so there's room for hauling things when necessary.

I seldom have a passenger - it's MY ride.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

2001 ford escape that my wife refuses to give up
2011 honda accord coupe V6-EXL

Both paid for.

Retiring in a year, switching careers, buying a home, THEN I will get myself a "you made it gift"..either a Mercedes C63 AMG coupe or Audi RS5, I go back and forth Consider
