I've always been blissfully satisfied with the experiences I imagine come with owning an unconventional daily driver.
I have a deep appreciation for the series of articles Doug Demuro wrote about his CTS-V wagon. They were always well written and continuously kept everyone well informed about what was going on.
But the CTS-V wagon is a practical vehicle.
I want something insane, something impractical and unconventional. I want a car that when I announce "Hey, Jalopnik, this is the car that I'm going to be driving for the next 6 months," the response is "you're crazy".
What I want to know is this: what unconventional daily driver do you want me to purchase and write about for the next six months?
Here are a few I've already considered:
- 1st-gen Dodge Viper
- Lotus Esprit
- Unimog/M35A2/Hummer H1
- Factory Five/Superformance Shelby Cobra
- Ferrari F355
Here are my guidelines:
1. It must be something you would be interested in reading about.
2. Bonus points if it's a Lotus
3. Must not be a hearse
4. It must be something you would be interested in reading about.
