It started out overcast when the sun first came up and around 50 degrees. Now it's sunny but there are supposed to be major down pours before sunset. Temps in the 60s.

TOTD. There is another thread today about the weird vehicles drive. What do you drive?

I have a 2007 Ram 1500 SLT for daily operations and a 2000 Porsche Boxster for cruising around in. I bought the truck because I need to haul stuff around. I got the Porsche because I've wanted a Porsche since I was around 10 years old and saw the movie 24 Hours of Lemans with Steve McQueen. The 917 Gulfstream he drove was just a beautiful car (in my eyes) and I believe that it never lost a race it was in.

I don't think my car is weird; it's a BMW 325xi. The weird part may be that I paid cash for it, which isn't what most Americans do. As Dave Ramsey says, they think you HAVE to have a car payment.

cloudy, rainy day in Cajun country.

TOTD: I drive a 2008 Nissan 350Z. This is my second one which was a 2003 model. I love sports cars starting with a TR3, Sunbeam Alpine, Chevy Monza, (3) Nissan 200SX.. wrecked 2 of them, Nissan 300Z, (2) MR2's and (2) 350z's. I have spent a bunch on new cars. Might even be more than Shannon has on shoes.:D

It's dark, cold, and snowing.

TOTD: I drive a Jeep Liberty. Cars are just transportation to me. The only things I want out of a vehicle are four wheel drive and some amount of cargo capacity. :)

Sunny, mid to upper 20s, better than yesterday.

I drive a 2005 Ford Focus. It's almost paid for. I was going to replace it right away, but I need to get bridge work and also pay off some bills. I'll be getting a 2011 Focus next year.

What's it like to ALWAYS have a car payment? :(

It just seems monotonous. Sisyphean.
