At the moment, one beater Corolla of which I don't have pics, and my two work trucks. I happen to have a certain number of pics handy for each of them, here's a quick selection.

For the Ford, in order,

1) at a customer's in Bécancour industrial park
2) around Amarillo TX (with a bit of snow)
3) under snow in my Sherbrooke driveway
4) at a random I-80 rest area outside Omaha NE
5) at a customer's on Mtl south shore

For the Chevy, in order,

1) towing a 8x8 cooling tower at a customer's in QC
2) in my driveway (and proving to freeweed it has a bumper Rebel flag)
3) on my street in Sherbrooke
4) somewhere in NC, towing back cooling tower parts to QC


Those are the vehicles I happen to own at the moment... because I figure that's what the thread is about. I used to be a big car guy (I'm still one, but I was a bigger one then) and have owned a few more interesting cars over the years, but at the moment it's not the case.

(FWIW -- I have no fresh pics of that system, but the Chevy has been running on WVO for over a year now.)

P.S. I forecast that not many skyscraper geeks will have plenty of car pics ready to be posted... that's if they even own a car

(Still, interesting thread idea IMO)

Thanks.

-----------

By the way, it's allowed to find a similar picture of your car on internet. Or you might just tell us what you drive aswell.

Blah... maybe, but they're not all living in a condo tower in downtown Toronto ... we'll see.

I don't have a car but I am learning to drive in a 2010 Hyundai Sonata.

I just have to put my foot near the pedal and we're in a ditch, it's awesome!

This is my current personal transport:





When I do get a vehicle it'll probably be a pickup truck. Cheap insurance and I always seem to have a lot of junk I need to get rid of.

You're adorable, Franks. Great pictures as well - I love the panorama, although that parkade doesn't look very safe.

Here are a few of my car - the second-cheapest Honda I could get, ha! I bought it in Winnipeg in 2010.

Here it is boarding the truck to come to Newfoundland:



A picture my parents took and sent to me as a joke once it arrived:



While I was living with my parents when I first moved home:



Later on, the storm got worse:



Gower Street:



My default parking space:



Finally got rid of those Manitoba plates, and replaced it with my single Newfoundland one:





And on top of my namesake, Signal Hill:

I'm more wondering why you have a Confederacy Battle Flag on your one truck.

Both - I sometimes park at the bottom or the top. The trail forms a loop.

Dying laughing here.

FYI, it's probably going to be WAY cheaper (in total ownership costs) to get a car and a little trailer... that should be more than enough for your junk-hauling needs unless you actually want to do serious towing (which I suppose you don't).

Sure, but "normal" people usually don't happen to have a selection of pics of their car on their computer... I think

Back 6-7 years ago, I used to drive my dad's 1991 Buick Regal Custom when I first got my license. The brakes were horrible the steering was not extremely responsive, and the ride was floaty, but I really liked it. The interior was blue and it had very comfortable seats. This is the car I remember riding in as a kid. My friends used to think that my dad had the coolest car. It had character, unlike a lot of the cars today.


(my photo - 2007 - I took this photo soon before he sold it for scrap )

After that I mostly drove his 2001 Chevrolet Malibu. I don't have any pictures of it, but he still owns it so I might snap one at some point.

I never owned a car, as I hardly ever drive. I spend most of my time downtown, and take public transit to get there. If I were to buy a car, I would want something that had character. I would definitely buy used, as a depreciating asset like a car isn't really a great investment.

Aside the fact that I love my car and love driving, this is sadly true...
