I drive mine all the time rain or shine, with the exception of in the snow. Haul the kids around too. Too much fun just to drive occasionally.

I bought my first Mustang ever a bit over a week ago. I bought her to be my daily driver. I only work 3 miles from home so I keep finding different routes in order to spend a bit more time driving her. What a rush! I can't imagine leaving her locked up most of the time. What fun is that?

My 73 vert is my main transportation. Being a telecommuter, I don't know if it counts as a daily driver, but I do drive somewhere almost every day. Before this I had a 69 Grande that was my daily driver for a decade - before telecommuting. Now I'm thinking I want a 65 to 70 coupe to make into my daily driver and make the 73 showable. I had a 96 GT with a 5 speed for about 2 weeks until I gave it to my girlfriend ... new cars just don't float my boat (although it is a very nice well balanced vehicle).

I drive mine as often as possible..but not in the rain. I work at home so the commute is very short.. but I drive it just about everywhere else.. I even took it to Home Depot once to pick up some 2 x 4s. They guys there could not believe it when I put the top down and started loading up the convertible with 8 2 x 4s...

My 1967 coupe is my daily driver come rain or shine. It makes it challenging to get all the projects and upgrades I want to get done timed so I cna have it ready to drive to work on Monday morning.

I built it exactly the way I wanted it for a daily driver, and it's been my primary transportation ever since. I drive it rain or shine (and Ilive in the Seattle area!). I draw the line at snow though. That torquey, low first gear combined with uneven braking from 4 drums scares me in the snow!

I have a 69 Grande Coupe that is driven every day. It even gets more of a work out when my college aged daughter is home. I also have an 00 GT that the SWMBO drives every day.

I have failing heat, no ac, and rain snow whatever my 68 goes to/from work. Heat went out recently (got a new core, haven't had a chance to pop that puppy in yet.) and it snowed...freezing sleet on the windshield as it drove along. What a pain.
in the summer, ac is 55-65 mph ;) and I don't own another car. Makes working on it hard as whatever I do I need to have it /done/ before work next. I got all the parts for new heater core, cowl vent repair... I'll get to it soon I promise.
Driven it for 10 years, and I worry now about some rust problems I am seeing. I may have to park it for a few years till I get the carreer to really pour money into it. I just got my tax money back and am considering another daily driver. But the budget is tight.

I bought my first car, a 65 coupe when I was sixteen. I'm almost nineteen now, and am just beginning to use it everyday. In High School, I would count on friends to drive me when it was raining or snowing. Now that I'm away at college, when I get home, all I want to do is drive my baby. And that's exactly what I do. Rain or Shine, that thing is at the mall, work, etc... Except snow and ice, I refuse to put my hard work at risk just to go to the grocery store for milk, Sorry Mom.

Mine is but I commute to work in NYC via train so that cuts out quite a bit. It's used for everything else though and it sees rain, snow, the works. It's parked outside but I do use a car cover. It's my only car.

It has to stay running so when I need to make a repair I usually buy a spare part to use while working. Eg. I bought a spare carb to rebuild. Nothat the spare is on my car and working properly I can rebuild the original and swap back later.
