Mine gets on the road every day.  Among other things, I load my geriatric three-legged dog in the back every day at dusk and we go catch the sunset together at some nice location.

Generally speaking, I I use it for everything that my Miata's not suitable for.

I only own two cars, an 83 sx4 and an 85 wagon. So yes I daily drive them  ;D
I Don't know why. But everybody's always talking about their STI or That guys EVO, I think I'll stick with my old, but reliable AmC. Did I ever tell you I was Full blooded Eagle?

Except for the usual wear and tear of 182k miles and 32 years our Eagle is still a reliable daily driver. My wife and I got into ours a couple of weeks ago, and before the day was done it carried us over 200 miles.

Best wishes, gz, for a successful build of your daily driver. :eagle:
