Just posted this in another thread - but thought I would share here as well:

IMHO everyone should have a beater in the stable (ours as I've shared before is an early 2000's Mazda protege) / I love mine in fact mine just hung out at the U-Haul parking lot for the last three days without concern because we needed a van to pick up some stuff from Home Depot / my son and I returned the van and went to our beater and saw a large scratch on the bumper (I think someone backed into it) I said to my son "I don't think that was there before" he said "nope it wasn't" and we both said "oh well" got in and drove away

This while our BMWs sat safely in the garage - thank you beater for taking one for the team

Somebody hit my Eurovan the other day and didn't leave a note, and while I didn't really about the Eurovan I was pissed because of the possibility that it could've been the M3.

Garage List
We have two. A 1978 Jeep Cherokee sport, and a 1999 Plymouth voyager with no rear seats, no dashboard, no headliner. My husband uses it like a pickup truck. We don’t have annual inspection where we live, so no problem.

The Jeep is my husbands daily driver. Repaired AC twice and gave up. Windows don’t work, so no ac and no windows, it is such a joy (NOT). I’ve always hated that car because it feels like I’m an egg in a beater.

He also uses it to drive on the beach. Next time we go, I’ll meet him there in my X5.

-edit, sorry, 1998 Jeep, not 1978.
