Volvo XC90 4wd. VERY dirty at the moment. Went to clean it yesterday and noticed that a fitting on the high pressure washer is broken after winter storage. So it'll have to stay dirty for another day or two while I get the fitting replaced :)

Depends on what i'm doing. I've got a 2009 CX9 for carting the dogs, as a people mover, or for trips to the grocery store. A 2004 RX8 for fun - just drive it for pleasure. And a 2004 Mazda pickup for hauling dirty stuff for the garden, and for my son to use because it's a tough little bugger.

I thought long & hard about getting one of these, I think they're cool, but the limited visibility was a deal-breaker for me; it feels a little like driving a cave...

Depends on what I'm doing, where I'm going, and the weather.

For everything but snow, going to work I drive a Prius. I was surprised at how much I like the car, and at 50 mpg, the daily 56 mile commute is not so bad. Throw in a little XM radio and I'm good.

For snow, and Missouri back roads, a Jeep Liberty Renegade. Enough to get you through, and not too spartan for the wife.

PT Cruiser, with flames, for whatever (son mostly drives it now).

For nice weekends and as a personal toy, the car I wanted when I was 16. It only took 42 years, but a Vette roadster now lives in my garage. Are they as cool as they were when I was 16? No. But, a young man's dreams have a way of persisting even past the point where one should know better. It's noisy, rattles, loud, rough, over powered and crude. Yeah, just like I had hoped.

Nice...

Not on the road as too expensive to run a third car in the UK for me at the moment, but this is my toy:

It was hard to get used to for about a week... I don't even notice it anymore.

I am still working on it, but one of these days I truly hope I will have the pleasure of driving one of These around. It doesn't quite look like this one at present, but hopefully it will soon.

For those interested as to what type of vehicle this is, it is a 1948 Alvis TA-14, and yes I do have all the parts for it.

Just a question of time and money I guess.

I didn't even notice when I sat in one but I haven't driven one yet. From what angles are you talking about R? Hood looks long, is that the problem? Or is it the view when looking out through the side windows, for changing lanes, let's say? It took me a while to get used to looking out the side windows when changing lanes with my current SUV, had two very close calls.

One of the main issues with visibility is the rear view. The spare tire takes up about 1/2 of the rear window. I am a mirror user and this doesn't effect me too much because the side mirrors are very large. The interior does seem dark but I think that is due to the flatness of the windshield. I agree with my wife though(of course), strange at first but once you drive it for awhile you don't even notice those issues. I didn't like the FJ initially but I have to admit it...I'm a fan now(plus no recalls!!)

Mercedes Benz ML350 CDI Bluetec Diesel - love this truck, amazing performance, incredible mileage and very "green". My second ML, the first one was a gas guzzler, this one is 8.1 L/100 on the highway, which is half of the gas version. I would recommend it and would buy it again. Also have an Mercedes Benz E300.
