    I don't use either 1 of my Trans Ams as my daily driver. I have a 1994 Saturn for that! That is why my 02 has only 18,000, and my 97 has 53,000. Oh I live in Minnesota also that has even more to do with NOT using them as my daily driver.

    '00 TransAm WS/6

    Daily Driver

    I've had the opportunity to use other cars as my daily driver.

    I had a '98 T/A and my '00 WS/6. The '98 sat in the driveway most days, because the '00 was more fun to drive.

    My wife has a Honda CR/V. When I have to move stuff, I take her car, and realize how much it hurts with the lack of power. It's hard to get used to pulling onto a busy road in the WS/6, where I just find a gap and go. In hers, I find a gap, hit the gas, realize it didn't launch into traffic, and hit the brakes (since I only moved about 6 inches) until a much much longer gaps shows up.

    Our blind spot sucks. I lose cars in it a lot, so I'm in the habit of bumping the gas to clear it just before I change lanes. In the Honda, I can bump the gas, but it doesn't make a difference. Sometimes I get trapped in the wrong lane, just because I can't speed or up or slow down enough to get over. The T/A's not only go fast, but stop fast too.

    I was just given a basket case MG Midget, which may end up being my daily driver with the current gas prices. Of course, the MG is designed for about 35 mpg, and 300 miles between break downs, so I may end up driving the WS/6 more than I can afford.
