QOTD: Unexpected Daily Driver?

qotd unexpected daily driver

Society loves an oddball. In our increasingly polarized existence, as the push for ever narrower avenues of accepted thought by our blue checkmark overlords continues apace, the non-conforming outsider remains a valued character.

Hollywood films would be lost without this person. Sometimes, the first indicator that this individual marches to the beat of a very different drum is the vehicle they’ve chosen as their daily steed.

Chris may have run into one of these types last weekend when, during a routine trip to the store, he encountered a four-door Avanti sandwiched amongst so much rolling mediocrity. An unexpected but nonetheless unimpressive sight.

Ooof. How would Sherwood Egbert react to this?

If your lifestyle and repair budget allows it, to say nothing of your courage, you too could be an oddball. Perhaps you already know of such a character, though. A friend, relative, coworker, or neighbor who makes a statement on a daily basis via their vehicle.

What’s the ride?

      My brother, really well off, own company, net worth well into 7 digits, drives a 2008 Ridgeline with nearly 250k miles...bought used off me. He wanted a new daily driver after his old Outback died. He loves it.

    If there is an outlaw EV1 still alive somewhere, I would totally rock it.

  • I'd buy the right A body wagon.

    Money no object, practicality be durned: McLaren F1. I'd go for it strictly because of the weird seating position; I've always been fascinated by how it would work in practice.
