Just curious as to how many of you with all your "mod hell" perks actually drive it daily?

I'll start....I do:alchi:

I use mine as a second car. I drive it for short errands sometimes on weekdays but I take it out for drives at least once on the weekend. I do use it to drive to San Diego on occasion when I go there for business and I have taken it to Laughlin once.
My car is black/black with the polished upgrade rims and rear spoiler. My only mods are LPE cold air kit, Corsa and a Stealth tune.

Every day unless rain is imminent.

Car's never seen snow or rain......collectable car IMHO......

Drive a little four-door Ranger as the D/D.....Funny though, the "V" gets better gas mileage as compared to the little 4.0 liter V-6.

I take the '91 Toyota Camry DX the 2 miles to work where it sits under the Southern California sun all day, then drive the CTS-V the 40 mile round trip each night picking the kids up from swim team (the freeways open up nicely for the 8:30 pm brisk drive home).

Daily...rain or shine. 2,050 miles on it and it's only just over a month old. :(

Once I get the Lex back, it will take more of a break.

2004 black on black, limo tinted windows, 20 Iforge rims, NX dry 100 shot, bottle heater, all the accessories for the nitrous, Volant intake. Had the car about a year, bought used with 11K and know have 17K. Not a daily driver, it sits in Houston in a garage and covered up, and I currently work in Milwaukee Wi. So it gets driven for about 4-5 days every 2 or so months.

Dyno was 343rwhp with tune on motor
With 100shot it was 468rwhp.

Heck I have only used the gas 3-4 times. Then on the dyno also, so maybe 5 times total.

I have a daily driver 93 mercury topaz LOL, and my other toy is a 2006 Raven R6. Which I have been turning my mod money to

Mine is a daily driver, although not heavily modded. I sometimes wish I had more money, so I could buy another car to us as a daily driver, and give this beauty a rest. Well. Actually, I always wish I had more money.

Daily. Stock except for iCAGS & UUC. 6000 mi since November. I'm gonna start riding my FXRT soon though. 50mi/gal is attractive nowadays.

My daily driver since February '04. Four years in North Dakota teaches you not to be affraid of snow or ice especially if you had a '67 vette at the time. Besides, I just get to wash and wax the "V" more often!!!! :highfive:

Mine's a daily driver. Rain, snow, you name it. 4/12 months old, 8500 miles. No mods except Hankook Ice Bear tires. No issues in the 4 times I drive it in the snow. Four times out on the auto-x course and kicked all but very skilled drives in C5 Z06's with sticky tires on them - even with the Ice Bears. It's time to break out the F1's and see what she can really do!

06, daily driven all 600 miles of it. I'll probably end up doing a small cam and headers or a supercharger. Shit, who knows, maybe both!

DD, any wxr up to an inch or two of snow....no snow shoes here and serious elevation changes. Absolutely a mess in the snow without the right rubber. I'm waiting to here from some Canadians I've heard running serious snow tires.

My '04 V is a hardcore daily driver, rain, snow whatever. This time of year it is my fishing vehicle. 41k miles, no mods except Hawk pads (no dust).

It is either the V or the '68 GTO. The V draws the tough duty. Even with its weak points (diff whine, rough shifter) the car is a blast. I've been fortunate to have some fun cars, the V wins for the most enjoyable.

Looking forward to an LS-7.
