    This isn't my actual car, but it pretty much looks like that - only 50K on the odometer.

    [​IMG] My 2001 Honda Prelude. Fun daily driver. Obviously I'm just a poor college student so this isn't very impressive compared to a lot of cars on here, but it's mine and I like it [​IMG] This pic was from my road trip from Maryland to the Florida Keys late last year.

    You have good taste - I would love to have one of those with such low miles.

    Thanks, the LR Disco has been the most problematic of the boys. [​IMG]

    Lol...... Blue Streak (the A8) is my favorite stallion. He provides me with the best fuel economy with an average of about 25-28 mpg on the highway which is outstanding for a V8.

    Surprised at the number of people with multiple cars. But it makes sense(lesson I learned just a few years ago). It's very expensive to drive a Aston Martin every day. Much cheaper to drive a honda every day and drive an Aston Martin on the weekends and special occasions.

    ^^^^^ Man after my heart! When people ask my wife (since they never approach me) why we have more than the expected standard 2 cars (also we are a young couple with a 2 yr old son), she tries to explain to them, like I did when she met me as a single guy who must always have 2 cars, that: 1. We never have to worry about missing any appointment/event because a car opts to act up and 2. Like with our clothes, there is the work car, play car or/and special events car. The ability to rotate use amongst 2 or more similar items, lessens the wear and tear on any particular one.

    It's also nice to be able to change things up from day to day. Keeps driving interesting.
