Ride: V8 EF Futura

Location: Adelaide CBD
SA, Australia

Man i take blwn49 into the city every day of the week. But being a stock motor with the blower, it has extremely good manners. Bit rough on the old fuel bill but at 7:00 in the morning it only takes 10 minutes to drive into Adelaide from the eastern suburbs :)

Ride: BF Typhoon

Location: Melbourne
VIC, Australia

I generally drive mine all the time.
However all it takes is a scratch, chip, issue with the car or something while I was at work and then I wont drive it there for ages worrying about it untill I take the risk again lol.
Also the car remains much cleaner at home, but kind of wasted sitting there; In warmer weather I enjoy it more and in turn drive it more.

The other car is an EBII Fairmont. Good condit but its a pile to drive unless wanting economical run around which is why we have it.
