    So, being new, I thought I'd answer this post... Daily driver is a 1997 Toyota Camry (solid daily driver)
    For hauling and towing our 5th wheel camper we have a 1997 F150 that I got cheap, and restored.
    Race cars that I team up with others are:
    2013 Chevy SS NASCAR late model
    1999 Chevy asphalt Sportsman Class car
    2001 Chevy based metric dirt Sportsman Class car
    (2) Asphalt oval track racing go karts -- fast and fun to drive :) (not to mention cheap, lol)

    We are blessed to have several local dirt tracks, and a 5/8 mile NASCAR sanctioned asphalt track near by.

    Once I got to work on the late model team, I was hooked on racing.

    My daily driver is an '08 BMW 335xi with intercooler, chip, downpipe, exhaust, intake and methanol. Putting down a touch under 400hp. I wanted to do more but I already made the weekend toy unacceptable to the girlfriend!
    My weekend toy is an '05 Mini Cooper S that's been fully track prepped. It's bored and stroked to 1.8L, runs a custom supercharger setup and dynoed at 390hp.

    actually I sold my 2013 audi quatro TTs that was chipped and exhaust modified. It was ok on the road, but it was not good on the track, was kind of acting like a clown on the track, and never gave me a warning before loosing it, it simply looses it and there is nothing you can do about it when it is happening. I did a lot of training and racing with corvettes, so I traded my audi for the latest corvette, and I have never been happier. The big v8 keeps on giving and it handles road like crazy. I also own a 1976 corvette and also a 1984 corvette, and I have to say that I simply love my new vette. it has to be the cheapest and only super car that you can drive daily. Though mine has track exhaust so it is loud. but it brings a smile on my face every time I use it. also corvettes are simple, they do not have gadgets, I will never buy another gadget car. Also the water pump and paddle shifter and ignition coils are of real bad quality in all audi and break like crazy as soon as you push the car a little on the track, and the price to fix it is simply dumm. I don't think I will ever buy another german car, too many gadgets that controls how you drive instead of letting you drive.

    @cthiggin - Nice!
    I've had quite the collection over time.
    An 850R Wagon (Ex UK police pursuit car) when in the UK,
    Then moved to AU I had a 1972 Volvo 144 for a short time.
    Then a 1998 Volvo V40, and now my 2007 C70.
    They all share the bullet proof B52 engine, so you can't go wrong :)
    My V40 (that I am now selling since got the C70) has 325,000 kms on the clock and runs just fine.

    I am a real big fan of the S80's - especially the range topping T6.
    The S90 that is due looks stunning.
