when you dont have your Evo...

So my clutch went out, just had one ordered tonight and I have to wait until tuesday for the new one to get delivered. Then gotta wait for it to be installed. Until then, im driving my uncles damn Yukon, waay different from driving an evo. Feels like im driving a damn boat on the street.

How do you guys deal with not having your car?

I know what you mean. I have a G35 as my other car but I don't even like driving that. Nothing gives you the feeling the evo gives.

Having a daily driver is essential to owning an evo. My car has been in the shop for a month. I'm glad I have my 1995 Civic Ex!!!!

Agreed. I think a daily driver is essential if you have any car that you are going to modify. I went through the one car thing in the past (my Talon), and am glad I don't have to worry about getting the car fixed up on a certain day in order to get somewhere.

That being said, I still don't like when I can't drive the Evo. The G8 GT is a nice car, but it's definitely not as fun as the Evo.

I am driving my wife's Lexus SUV and it sucks not being behind the wheel of my Evo. Double sucks during the rare sighting of another Evo...
