2003 Nissan 350Z silverstone color with 6 speed manual transmission and black leather interior.
I decided to do it instead of getting an SUV, telling myself it was a good decision because its reliable and costs less than an SUV. I really did it because it is capable of Warp Factor 7 and looks great.
It really jacked up my neighbor down the street (in the nice part of the area) who has a silver Porsche Carrera 4. He pulled next to me at the light and did a doube take. We let each other drive our cars around the block, and I gotta say that the Porsche is incredible....but I'm just not sure it's $70k more incredible than my Z.

1999 Jeep Cherokee Special Edition for personal use. Rear bench folds down for additional cargo space. Tan leather interior, three speed automatic and a full size spare.
My work vehicle varies depending on my assignment but is either a 35, 40 or 45 foot Van Hool motorcoach. They have 5-6 speed Allison automatics, cruise control, three position Jake or six position transmission brakes, air ride, three to five monitor video systems and carry anywhere from 32 to 57 passengers, dependant on the size and configuration of the coach. Excellent visability as I sit up as high as a tractor trailer cab and have good stopping capability for air brake equipped vehicles of their weight (34,000-49,450 lbs.). By the way, don't tailgate motorcoaches: if they can't see you behind them and have to stop very quickly, their deceleration rate can be high enough that you'll rear end them. Transmission brakes can slow a coach very quickly, especially if used in combination with the service (air) brakes. Used alone, neither the Jake or transmission brake will illuminate the brake lamps.

2000 Honda Civic VP Sedan (Value Package - basically a DX with some factory features)
All stock (not riced). Great car to get me to and from school and for some occasional around-town trips. It's been very reliable and is really fuel efficient. Only things I'd ask for in it are cruise control (standard only in LX and EX) and a little more power although the 1.6L doesn't do a bad job of moving such a small car, can get kinda tough merging into a busy highway.
