what cars do geeks drive?
I have a Mazda6. I love it more than anyone ever should love an inanimate object.
That Toyota Prius thing that's hybrid gas/electric?
1999 Hyundai Tiburon
Stimulate that Simulator
2003 VW Passat
1990 BMW 525, very good condition.
87 Toyota 4X4
2001 Subaru RS2.5
Audi TT FWD 180
1997 Toyota Tercel
i drive a p.o.s. '97 saturn SC2 with 150,000 miles, a busted A/C, no stereo, and a sunroof that won't shut all the way...
1987 Toyota Corolla. 220,000 miles.
1998 Chevy Venture mini-van. Yes, this geek has reproduced.
that's me in the corner
Montana M2K Metallic Pea Family Truckster...
"Mitsubishi (TURBO) Eclipse GS 1999 (Silver cutie)"
01 Mercury Cougar...not stock.
"01 Mercury Cougar...not stock."
1998 Honda Accord Coupe. I wanted a vehicle that said nothing whatsoever about my personality. I think I got what I was looking for...
Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, Lotus Elise (on order), MV Agusta F4S, and I race formula cars and supermoto
...but I'm not a geek.
Formerly someone else
2000 BMW 528i for the last 3 months. Buy the car you want, not the car you should get. You will never regret it (unless you want a crappy car).
'99 Suzuki 650SVs
Anything that's more than 6 years old. Currently, we have:
1991 Mazda Miata. I want one of the new Lotus Elises.
Currently a 2001 Honda Civic. The object of my vehicular desire at the moment is the new Chrysler 300 M. Damn that thing is sick.
2002 Chevy Malibu, nothing fancy it just works
1998 Dodge Neon with 208,000+ km. It runs great, and given that I put 95km or so a day on it I just haven't been able to rationalize buying a new car. Our child transport is a 2003 Honda Odyssey - you wouldn't believe the gas that thing goes through just doing small jaunts around town.
A 1976 Mercedes-Benz 300D with a second tank in the trunk.
2003 Mini Cooper, but it's going to be a babied '87-90 e40 5-Series, eventually.
1996 Corolla wagon. I don't care about cars; they're boring.
Lexus SC 300.
1986 Porsche 911 Carrera
I posted an illustrated automotive history a while back on my blog:

99 Ford Focus Wagon. (Yes, there are 99s)
Trek mountain bike
2001 BMW 330i in the spring, summer, and fall
1997 Nissan Maxima
Christopher, I'll second you on the Subaru. My wife has an Outback that I love to drive. My Trooper will go through more sheer snow, but the Subaru handles better on ice, slush etc, and I can go faster around the curves on dry pavement. The Trooper is nice though I got the last model year they offered the 10 year 120k warranty. We will most likely drive these into the ground and then buy new again.
Formerly someone else
1995 Lada Samara. I'm just special.
2003 Chevy Silverado Z-71 extended cab
bicycle and feet
None, taking the tube.
Oh, in case anyone's interested (I don't expect you are), I used to drive a 1976 Volvo 245, bought with the express intention of beating the crap out of it. Ran into the back of a van about a month and a half ago.
Buick LeSabre 1990. When you're very tall, only a big fat american car will do the trick.

Until April of this year it was a 1996 Ford Escort LX. I got a really good deal (about 25-30% off what they are going for in the classifieds) on a 2002 Volvo S60. Quite a step up and I intend to drive this one into the ground. The Escort has 213,000 km on it (/1.6 to get miles) and still runs great. If anyone wants it and is in the Toronto area, speak up. :)
2004 Subaru STi.
Brad Wilson (dotnetguy.techieswithcats.com)
BMW 328i Coupe.
An 03 Hyundai Coupe (called Tiburon in the states).
1965 MG B GT
Gary van der Merwe
I'm not really a geek, but at the moment I still drive my Lexus GS300SE.
> Noble M14
M14... One of the options is a Living Will and a Plot.
Mazda RX8* (since February). Had an MX5 (Miata) for 5 years previous to that.
"Geeks" sounds cliche to me.
1989 Porsche 944 Turbo/1996 Dodge RAM 2500 Club Cab, Long bed turbo diesel
