I'd love to see this thread be placed on the home page as an article so that we can see what kind of cars visiters of this site are driving now?

Please reply to this thread with the year, make and model of the car you are driving right now?

Also will the Volt replace your current car or be in addition to?

What other cars are in your household?

To start this thread off:

I own a 1996 Ponitac Firebird Formula - This will be replaced by the Volt, yes I love my current car but I really look forward to *almost* never going to the gas station again.

In my household we also have a 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid, fully loaded. We all really love this car as it is great on gas, great performance, and fun to drive especially in small neighborhoods.

The Volt or something like it will be one of our two cars...or one of three if it takes more than 5 years to be available (kids driving...yikes!)

This list should make me stand alone. I'm sure nobody else will have this mix:

1959 Chevrolet Bel Air:
I've owned it since 1991 and I love it, but after 51 years it's about time for a car to retire. Will be replaced by the Volt. ;)

1973 Corvette 454 Roadster:
I'll probably keep it. I bought it new. I've owned it for 35 years. I drive it about 800 miles a year. So gas cost isn't a big issue, even at 14 MPG. :)

2004 Chevy Colorado crew cab:
Well, it's still not paid for. It's our daily driver and we use the truck function a lot. I'll most likely keep it because I need a truck sometimes, but the Volt will become the daily driver. :rolleyes:

1999 Rexhall Motor Home (Ford V-10):
I'd sell this today except my better half won't hear of it. So it currently keeps my driveway from floating off into space. It hasn't been moved since February. Maybe I'll rent out the bed to a homeless family. :eek:

Pennor1:

Good list. I'm not too far away.

Daily driver is a 2003 Grand Am GT 30th Anniv. ~32mpg with some careful accereration and speed control. 120K trouble free miles so far.

Wife drives a 1998 Olds Aurora. Awesome car. Our family of 4 fits perfectly with all the stuff and it gets 29mpg on the highway loaded down with the AC running. Can't complain.

Also have a 1996 Blazer for camping purposes.

I have a 1971 Corvette I have owned for 25 years. Doesn't see the road much though. But I wax it a lot.

Also have a 1968 Jeep Gladiator pickup. Ugly as sin and 10 mpg on a good day. But I would never give it up.

I used to drive a 1990 Beretta GT yellow indy version. Put 259,000 miles on that car before I gave it away. It only let me sit once (freeze plugs rusted out). A great car.

Pennor1,

its great you have the Vette from new. Not too many can say that with that vintage. The 454 was a monster. Mine is the 300hp 350. Nothing too exciting, but I wish it was a stick. The Vette was my daily driver from 1983-1988. It was a blast in the snow! :)

No intention to ever sell the Vette either. It's hard to sell one of those once you've had it a while.

Courted my wife with it, :), now I have to keep it until the kids are away so we can drive around together in it again.

Actually, I'm hoping to get a chance to escort my daughter in it in the high school parades. Too many Mustangs around here, we need some Vettes in the show. :)

I will add the Volt as the 4th vehicle and use it daily around town.

'94 Altima (hand me down from dad) and '00 Forester. Both cars get about 22 city 28 highway. Probably looking to get a Jetta TDI next year to replace the Altima and a Volt when the 2nd generation comes out...

I have ;
1. 2001 Yukon xl. (Best vehicle I've ever owned) 16 MPG
2. 2008 Hyundai Sonata 4 cyl. 5 sp. 31 MPG
3. 2004 Cavalier sedan 30 MPG
4. 1987 K-5 Blazer 4wd (toy) 12 MPG
5. next - 2011 Volt
Much rather have all domestic however 37% made in Alabama and a $13,766 price tag influenced me to go Korean, along with the MPG. I will drive a Volt!

1998 Honda Accord for my wife
2007 Pontiac Vibe for me

Volt would replace the Accord for sure and will probably replace the Vibe with a Provoq if GM comes to their senses and produces and EREV version in 2011.

Daily driver: 2006 Pontiac Solstice
Wife's car: 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser
Our toy hauler/work truck: 1996 Ford E-250 Van
Special Interest cars: 1955 Ford Town Sedan, 1947 Crosely CC Sedan

Not sure if the Volt will replace or be in addition to the Solstice. I want the Volt for all the cool reasons most people here do, but giving up driving a roadster might be impossible.:D

Nice Camaro! The second generation is my favorite of the Camaros. However, the new 2010 model is really growing on me fast and I might change my mind!?
