2000 Rover 75 Daily Driver

Not my car, but exactly like it. Got a picture of mine somewhere. If needed I'll upload it.

You can also check out my bike in the gallery

P.S.
I'm loving your 85 Civic! Retro!

KORED, I love your wagon! I had one just like it a few years ago. With studded tires, it would go anywhere. Actually I am looking for another. Here's my daily driver and my work truck:



The Aspire is a great car. The old Ford is good too but has a 360 and burns a quart of oil every 50 miles or so

EDIT: Thanks Solidus for posting the pics.

I'm a Chevy guy, but that is a darn nice truck. I would pull that engine and freshen it up. a quart in 50 miles is really bad. You've got to have a few broken rings in that thing.

Thanks! Actually it was just overhauled about 2K miles ago because it used so much oil to begin with. It's always used oil! I dunno', i'd like to drop in a 460

I mad maxed my Z28. Couldn't tell you the gas mileage it gets, but it passes everything but a gas station which is why I don't drive it much anymore.

I have two other cars but no pics yet.

My daily driver and fun vehicle is a 1992 Suzuki Vitara, 1.6 and a 5 speed manual, I love the small size of it and the light weight, with the low range box, I can often get into place similarly out fitted lager trucks can't go.
Has now been fitted with a 2 inch lift, 31 inch all terrain tires, and a 33 gallon fuel tank. Planning some bar work, snorkel, winch and a roof rack.
A short vid from the day after I got it:

My daily driver is my 1991 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. Ga$ mileage sucks but I only commute 15 miles round trip daily.

Big solid 4wheel drive with all the comforts.

Sorry for the "big" pic. I'll re-size and post it again.

Everyone,

Will you please re-upload your pictures in a small size? The pictures are breaking the border frames.

Thank you.

Here's mine,
1988 Toyota 4runner in petrol. I got in in petrol because the engine is cheaper to repair, you can still get new OEM 4Y petrol engines for around a grand. Even with the stronger petrol motor, it couldn't pull the skin off a decent rice custard.

The best part is the FRP top can come off, making it a pretty good spotlight rig.



And our other car, a 1989 Ford Laser. Get great mileage, makes a great run about and still capable of handling longer trips. Ford Australia made these locally from Mazda bits, and being a very popular make you can still get parts.

The old pig truck, a 1991 F250 7.3L Diesel, this guy generally lives at the house unless being used for hauling. Bought it for $800 from an old guy who had it sitting out in a field, after a bit of work it runs and drives just fine. The clearcoat was peeling terribly as tends to happen to some models in this age range, so I sanded it down and rattle canned the olive drab on myself. An old work truck isn't supposed to look too pretty, and it protects it well from the elements.
