What do people drive as a daily
« on: 16, May, 2013 - 20:35:28 »
Just thought this could be an interesting discussion, what do you guys drive daily?

Currently I drive the C5  8), mum has a Corsa and dad has an Aygo.

Its not my daily, as I dont have one of those, prefer to save money for the toys and walk/bus places, but it still gets used fairly often.



Its a 1991 205 GTi 1.9 :)

A boring estate.
The fuel economy of a smaller car, but space for loads of windsurfing kit and sleeping.  Tinted windows for privacy and it's a stealth camper.
I'm off to Anglesey tomorrow morning for a weekend of windsurfing.  :D

Thanks :) Its had quite alot of time, money and effort lavished on it! But its worth it, it seems to be an appreciating classic at the moment. (not that I have any plans to ever sell it!)

Some before/afters since I bought it then finished restoring it. Fortunately my new C5 doesnt need as much work! :D

I am quite literally mad on Citroens, we have 8 of them in our household, two of them are mine.

My current daily is a Xantia HDi Exclusive Estate.


It does make for ideal Sinclair C5 transport.

My toy is another Xantia, 2.0 Turbo petrol Activa. Which has something called 'Anti-roll Control' basically it dramatically limits body roll and as a result drives unlike anything else. With the turbo boost increased, it's a bit of a woof in sheeps clothing.


I happen to write the Xantia column for the Citroen Car Club magazine  ::)

Until a few months ago I used to keep my Xantias for nice days and had a sucession of Citroen C5s for my daily driver, which would have been quite fitting now ...

Here's my daily drive ride  8)



I do just over 20km to the office and back every day on it.  It's a one-off as I had it custom made locally, colour matched to my old (now long gone) sports car with 8 speed hub gears and disk brakes.  Also got a few trailers for it depending on if I'm heading to garden/shops or taking the kids out and about.

(we also have a Ford Focus, but I only use it once a week or so for large shopping trips or day trips out of the region)

I drive a Citroen DS4 and the wife has a Citroen C1, both nice cars for different reasons, we have had 12 Citroens over the years and I think I have had over 50 cars altogether.

Retro Andy.

Currently my main daily driver is an 89 Saab 900i 3 door Auto. 





The weekend car being an 87 Skoda Estelle 120LX.  The last one in the country apparently.





My other half has a 09 plate Pug 107 Verve which I have owned from new as well for when we need to be sensible...or it's hot enough that we deem air con necessary!



Car I really miss is my Suzuki Cappuccino.  Now that was fun.  Closely followed by my Lada Niva and Austin MiniMetro HLE, any of those three I would buy back in a heartbeat.

My daily driver is a Focus Diesel Estate(which carries a C5 with ease). My toys are a Renault Sport 172 Cup (for Autosolos), a Vindicator Vulcan V8(for sprints & hillclimbs) and a Porsche 924S owned from new (competed in quite often too)and currently undergoing a more powerful engine transplant.
