    What do you drive?

    Are PRS players snobs? I know I tend to look at someone a little different when he/she pulls a PRS from their guitar case on open jam nights. I usually figure this guy has a big house and fancy car too. :-)

    I still truck around in my 2000 Benz thats about to roll over to 200,000 miles. I used to get looks at the car wash when I pulled up...now it's just too old to turn heads. Much like it's driver. What do you drive?

    1996 Ford F250 with the Powerstroke diesel engine. It sounds like a train and pulls like one too. It will still out tow most newer trucks and has 300k miles. Plus it nails down 20 mpg and its paid for!

    I don't think that PRS players are snobs. We just know what plays the best and we're not willing to settle for anything less.

    Got a new Ford Explorer for my wife in November and I drive a Jeep Grand Cherokee...I've had my fun cars before...these days I care a lot more about the size of vehicle I am driving...and the ability to have ground clearance and handling in the crappy weather we sometimes get during the winter in NY...I also cannot say enough good things about Audi's...of which I have had several and credit one for saving my life and my son's last October...when the car met it's untimely demise upon encountering a Chevy van traveling at a high rate of speed and ended the experience by becoming intimately familiar with an expedition...end result was not pretty but we walked away....all I can say I am very grateful and that the car did its job!

    A 16 year old import. Darned thing is black and I can't drive it thru car washes which mean my Saturday mornings are all busy. But she's worth it.

    Hey 11Top, can you get your SnakeMobile in the car wash?

    2008 MB C300 4Matic. About 55k miles so far. I drove my last car for 10 years before I really had a want for a new one. I am hoping that will be the case with my C300 as well.

    Yep, and if I leave the top down, I don't have to have the inside detailed.

    My current motor is a SEAT Exeo ST (Old Audi A4) 170bhp Diesel, leather, Climate control, Cruse Control, iPod dock, Satnav, blah, blah, blah.

    Its a company car and I must say I love it, I cane the living daylights out of it every day and it has never missed a beat, its low on tax too compared to an equivalent BMW or Audi due to its lower value (in the UK we pay more income tax if you have a company car based upon emissions and retail value of the car), and Diesel is about 1.40. per litre or 6.30 per UK Gallon over here currently.

    I have done 60,000 miles in it since new (18 months) and have another 60 before she goes back.




    However what I would really like is

    PRS SE Custom 24 in Royal Blue
    Fender Mustang III V2
    Fender Squier Telecaster in Butterscotch Blond
    Stagg Electro Acoustic

    An Alfa Romeo GT 1.9 JTD. Reasonably quick, handles great, good for 45mpg+ on a long journey and - if I put my PRS in a gig-bag - I can get my full rig in the boot!

    Just cost me about $1700 to service, though! Guess that's what you get for buying a cheap Alfa that hasn't been serviced for 30k miles but it should be set now.
