With the current high price of gasoline I got curious as to what kind of vehicle people on this forum drive.

Here's a picture of my 2007 Honda Civic Coupe which is my daily driver.


I purchased this car because it not only looks nice but it is also very good on gas as it gets nearly 35 mpg on the highways.

I ride a beautiful Vespa LX50 4V4T all year long except when the roads are iced over. It has a four valve / four-stroke engine that gets about 44 Km per liter and it is relatively cheap to maintain. It is the perfect mode of transport in a (sub)urban environment. And no Wolowitz jokes please!

I'm so jealous! ^_^ I almost purchased a Scion tC because its styling, at least to my eyes, was reminiscent of the G35 coupe. You must pull in some serious cheese to afford a car like that, ddr2nite. May I ask what you do for a living?

I love cheese :w00t:

I'm a sales/systems engineer for the company Cisco. I basically sell hardware that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to companies - however I recently just got a promotion and will be in a different position (still with the same company) and I'll be a marketing engineer. The car is paid off and I have ZERO credit card debt, or school loans - 4 years out of college. This is a lesson for you kids: go to college and get a degree - but more importantly, get a degree in something that makes a lot of money and you like to do + are good at.

I live just outside of Raleigh, NC and Cisco has a very big presence here. In fact, my best friends cousin works there as a Network Architect and I believe he makes pretty big bucks too.

I'm in telecom so I've had exposure to Cisco OC48 equipment in the past although I believe they acquired that from Cerent.

I hear that many are calling for Cisco's CEO to step down as the stock hasn't been performing well lately. That really surprises me given how exciting the Telepresence demo was between California and India.
