Hey Chris,

You need another category:
"My L USED to be my daily driver, until I blew an F'in rod and had to get something else"

Count me in for that one - otherwise, I think I'll have to abstain.

My L is NOT a daily driver. It sits in the garage with a truck cover during winter and the beginning of spring since I live down a 300 yard dirt road it stays muddy for a while during the thaw.

Once the ground dries up I drive it every weekend and a few times to work when I feel like pissing off my buddy that has $90,000 plus worth of vehicles (goofy looking $50,000 Chevy truck thing, and some $40,000 Honda) that have both been smoked by my stock L… :D

Well, I am out to sea for 8+ months a year (wich I try to plan around winter) so my L does a lot of sitting. But when I'm home, I drive the pee out of it! I've managed to rack up over 50,000miles in the little time that I'm home. She's been from Toronto to Key west, hauled 55gal drums of gear oil, new in box 200hp outboard engines, a complete mustang drive line, and towed various boats including my 20 ft center console. And raced at damn near every track on the east coast!

Yes I use it as a driver but not daily. Just drove a bunch of hockey bags to Cali for a tournement, Forgive me I used my truck as a ....TRUCK. I was weak there for a moment.
So I say Yes it is.

Chris we did need another cat
Daily driver "SOMETIMES" hehehehehe

I use to drive mine 24/7 365, but now I have a Mitsi-something for winter and work.

I do try and drive the L everyday when it's nice and or dry, (if not to work then everynight)

My L is a garage queen except on sunny days. My daily driver is a 2003 330i ZHP.

Mine is definetly a daily driver. 89K miles in 3 years proves it. But it looks like I will be trading it in for a new daily driver. I agreed to trade it in on a fully loaded AWD Montego for my finacee and in return I can get another l or a cobra, but i think i might wait for the new cobra or the adrenaline, so i will get some thing cheap to tide me over till then

DD for 3 seasons. A Lightning in Minnesota winter would be futile, plus it would rot out from the salt they put on the streets. I couldn't subject my truck to that.
