I come from a McLaren MP4-12C. Although it was a real chick magnet and a lot of fun to drive, it was expensive to maintain and way too thirsty for my budget.

Ok, not really. I was just dreaming again.

Actually, I traded in an 05 Nissan Frontier crew cab 4x4. As blah as the interior was, it was an awesome truck that got me from point A to B in even the worst snow and ice without a problem. Being an avid do-it-yourselfer (MacGyver's got nothing on me), I used the truck for various home improvement and other miscellaneous projects.

The truck averaged 16 MPG with that V6 though and that made it too expensive as a DD; $70 a week to fill up. Now I just rent or borrow a truck when I need one and enjoy 32+ MPG while filling up once a week for $35.
