What else do you drive?

I know some guys out there use their Jeeps for daily drivers like me. But I'm sure that many people also cruise other vehicles or bikes.

What else do you cruise besides your Jeep?

My 94 Wrangler is my daily driver. I only live 8 miles from my job so it doesn't see a lot of miles. That's OK with me because I take good care of my vehicles and I know that it will last forever.

My weekend cruiser is my restored 68 Firebird. It has a 400, with an 068 cam, a Muncie M-21 4 speed and a 10 bolt rear with an Eaton posi unit and 3:55 gears. I've owned it since my junior year in high school and I'm 44 today. It's been restored twice. The first time was a kids restoration that didn't come out so well. The second time I restored it, I did it right. It went into the body shop and all the metal work was redone. New quarters, floors, fenders, ect... the motor was bored .030 over with a set of lightly ported 6X heads. I'm also running the Pontiac 068 cam which is a nice street cam for torque. Add in the 4 speed Muncie and the 3:55 gears and this car moves!

It's a blast to drive and gets a lot of attention at car shows and cruise nights because it's not just another Camaro, Chevelle, or Mustang.

Check it out...

I have a '12 Hyundai Sonata Turbo that is my every day/longer distance driver. However the Jeep is usually parked behind it in the driveway and I am usually to lazy to swap cars around.

Saving up for a Z06 vette to add to the stable as well.

On another note I am looking for property to buy to build a metal building to use as vehicle storage/workshop space.

My Wrangler is my DD and we use it for errands, etc. Otherwise it's a 2001 Tahoe Z71. What is funny is the Jeep gets better fuel economy.

When I want to go fast or corner like there's no tomorrow, I take my 6th gen Honda VFR. Not that many farkles -- heated grips and a custom rack over the pillion for a Givi box -- but it once took me all the way to southwestern Colorado.

Since we only have two vehicles, it's either the TJ (mine), or the SJ (hers). Either way it's a Jeep.

My DD is the COD Rubi. Our other vehicle is my wife's 2011 Grand Cherokee.

I'd really like to restore an old VW bus or Type II transport if I ever get a house with a garage ever again.

Can't believe I have to quote myself, since the window of opportunity for edits has closed.

Anyway, here's a couple of pics, first the bike,
then me on the Dragon, US 129 in TN/NC

It's always cool to see what other vehicles people have and what their hobbies are.

My wife and I live pretty simply and prefer to own the least amount of "stuff" as possible. Therefore, only one car per person, my JKU and her Hyundai Santa Fe.

But for other vehicles I use a couple of pairs of boots, running shoes, and turf shoes for softball.

The other vehicle is the wifes 12 Journey R/T. It is a great grocery getter and an even better long distance driver. Just got back on a 2600mi round trip and it was super comfortable and got good gas mileage at just over 24mpg. That was mostly 78-82 on the interstate and in town driving.

Not my pic but close enough. Only difference between that one and mine is that mine has a roof rack.
