For many years we used to have two cars, although only one of us drives. The reason for this is that when my grandma died, my dad inherited her car. He then got rid of her car, but because my grandpa's sight was going, he could no longer drive, and gave his car to Dad too.
When our car of almost twenty-five years finally gave up, we go rid of that, and now we just have one.
We're a two car family. My wife does shoping & taking our daughters here n' there.I like to keep my car clean inside & out so I don't give rides to my grand kids. The make of the car does't matter but I like to drive rather that taking a train or a bus I don't mind sitting in a traffic jam but I'm all alone in my car & I like that environment rather than sitting among other people in a 'public Transport'. Sometimes watching people with their dreadful habits,their lack of personal hygine & other habits gets mu BP high & I'd rather avoiod that.I just like my privacy in my car.
We have one car per person in our household. My husband has a car for work; we have a family car for the family, which I use most while Hubby is at work; and Granddad has his own car too because he needs a special contraption on his steering wheel to help him drive.
My partner has two cars - one a sports luxury and the other a ute. I have my faithful hatch which I find is useful for me as it allows me to transport my dogs to the vet, carry lots of shopping as well as 3 or 4 passengers.
We have three. My hatchback is called the shopping trolley and handy transporting my dogs to vets etc, the ute is called the half-car but is handy for picking up and moving loads and the Monaro is the 'flashy' car and used for special occasions like Weddings and Funerals and hardly leaves the garage.
