Is your GT your Daily Driver?

As means of collecting some statistics, would appreciate y'all answering the following questions..

1. How many of y'all GTs are your daily drivers?

2. Auto or Manual?

Thanks in advance!

1. Nope, not a daily driver. I drive a work truck that they provide for me to go to work. My Mustang only gets driven about 4 times a week..

2. It's my first manual transmission

1.) As of now my daily but about to buy an Xterra for my DD cuz it's pointless to drive 46 miles round trip to work in stop and go traffic

2.) Manual cuz that's the only way to play unless you can get the Porsche PDK

Daily driver for the mean time. Lookin to buy a truck though because I'm a cyclist both mountain bike and road and I refuse to put a hitch or bike rack on my mustang.

Manual transmission for me.

2013 GT premium, manual: My wife's daily driver.

His & hers, because neither one of us were willing to share.
38 miles a day for each of us. Can't get the smile off our faces as we leave for work.

1- 98 GT is my daily when its nice out. Other than that its a 2003 Mazda 6 that I DD or my Expy if its really ****ty out.

2- Currently 5 spd, going to convert it to a stalled automatic though. Will make car go faster in a straight line and harder launches.

My 2013 5.0 automatic with 3.15 gears is a daily driver. I even drove it last winter in the snow and ice. I have owned it for little over a year and I have put almost twenty two thousand miles on it already.

I installed a Borla ATAK Catback, JLT cai, and Brenspeed 91 octane tune on it when it had around 3,000 miles on it. That means that I have had absolutely zero modification related issues with my car for almost nineteen thousand miles.

I did have to get two warranty related issues fixed. At 5,000 miles, my battery died. Recently, my driver side fog light decided to quit working. Both of those issues were rectified at my local Ford dealer for free, even though I did not even buy this vehicle in this state.

2100 GT/CS - Manual. Daily driven unless I need to move stuff or the weather sucks, that's what the Toyota FJC is for. People around here cannot drive in the rain to save their lives.

got my '11 GT, 6MT, used in March with 8800 miles. 6 months later now at 17,500. Its just too damn much fun not to drive everyday! I will taper off through the winter and drive my '87 BMW that has 280K on the clock. Way better gas mileage but not nearly as fun anymore.
