    Mine is a daily driver, but it is still not driven that much. Maybe 7500 miles a year. It is great to work from home. :D

    Mine is for when I feel the need for speed, and whenever I know I can park somewhere without getting a dent. One year next month and I’m still dent free. :banana:

    I drive mine about 90% of the time. It stays in the garage a few days a month, so I can drive my 96 GT.

    Yep, if I could afford a beater right now, I'd get one, but I love driving my Cobra so its not that bad.

    I just got mine in June, the 24th, and I ahve maybe put 300 miles on it, and now that schools back in, Its gonna be in storage. I imagine I might put 2000 miles on it in a year, and thats only in the summer and around christmas.

    10K miles/year daily driver for me. If I wanted a show/weekend car I'd build one.

    The car belongs on the road, not in the museum.

    Oh I just don't want some moron at college to mess with mine, and my budget is tight, so gas is less in my beater.

    My cobra is my daily driver. I love driving this car everyday and would never drive anything but a V8 mustang for daily driving. I also like how the car gets a ton of looks. I can be sitting at a stop light or in a parking lot and people stare as they drive by or even say how much they love my car.
