I barely drive a cage anymore except my work van. My personal vehicles: a 1979 Chevy Blazer K-5 w/350 V8 bored .060 over, 33" off-road tires, 2500rpm stall converter, 4.10 gears, no mufflers....a beacon of gas hog....but yet I haven't driven it in 4 years....it needs a transmission rebuild which isn't high on my list of priorities; and a 1960 Chevy Impala. Stock 283 V8, 110k original miles, 2 spd powerglide, and power nothing else...sits about 4 inches off the ground. Sitting on a set of Coker wide white bias-ply tires. I drove it everyday (winter included) but it's sat for the past year and a half. Needs interior overhauled and some cosmetic on the paint....but mechanically good.
I'm selling them both..and going to get a pick-em-up truck.
Live-in girlfriend drives the baby transporter....a Nissan Maxima...year unknown to me.

well i don't have a garage so i hope i can play here.
it's two subaru's for this house hold.
mine is a '99 Outback Lagacy and the ole lady drives a '05 Outback Impreza.
best car in the world for where we live. they're like little tanks and go just about anywhere with the right tires
i had a '96 F-150 gas hog truck w/wooden back bed and everything but the suby gas mileage won out

The vehicles my Sportsters share a garage with during winter downtime are a 56 Bel Air 2 dr hardtop (with the original 265), 56 Chevy panel truck (supercharged 427 big block) all original 69 AMC Hurst SC/Rambler (might have to Google that one) 2009 America Cup winner and a 29 Pontiac sedan rat rod (not quite finished)...but during the riding season my bikes share the attached garage with a 71 CB 750, a VL800 and a Scion tC lol. It's a turbo though!

While my Sporty has her own room (the garage); however, she does have to share the driveway with the cage... an 06 Pontiac G6. Used to be an 03 Eddie Bauer Explorer out there too, but the EX took that with her so that I could have more driveway room for my Sporty!
