I guess my thoughts on this (what I had in mind when I asked the question
about driving a classic daily) are as follows:

o Something 'different' from the norm for most people
o Something that would make people ask 'You drive THAT everyday??'
o Something simple enough to do most mechanical work myself (I'm
   one that doesn't want to mess with the computers in my car) and
   for which I would not need to have several spare parts cars lying
   around... I.e., parts were available thru the usual suspects
o Something that I would not worry about driving in rain and snow (well,
  not too much..)
o Something reliable enough to take on trips of up to 3 or 4 
  hours from home
o Automatic transmissions need not apply!
o Something that would leak in my driveway!
