I've got a Ford F250 Super Duty crew cab diesel, a Cadillac SRX (which my wife drives) and when my daughter moved out of state she left the Cobalt I bought her (go figure?). I kept the Cobalt for when my youngest son gets his license and I often drive it around town. My C6 is strictly a track car now. It's not a glamour shot but here's a photo of the truck (and C6):

My DD is a 2012 Ford F150 Ecoboost XLT ... absolutely love driving this truck!

Who would have thought a V6 could pull 11000 lbs!

My boat is way lighter than that but I have towed a 26' Striper with it and it was no problem!

Keeping my foot off the gas gets me about 19-20 mpg ..normal driving 16-17

Our other car is a 2013 Fusion Titanium ..very nice car with some great looks to boot!

The Corvette is just to make summer commutes tolerable. My real automotive hobby is a lot slower.

My fleet as of a couple years ago. The 1975 FJ-40 on the right was a resto-mod project and that's the one I sold to make room for the 'Vette. The 2006 Unlimited Rubicon in the middle is for scenic/moderate trails and the 1970 FJ-40 furthest away is for the tough stuff.



The little guy out on the trail:




The big one under construction. None on the trail yet, but it's getting really close now! All tube frame, 16" coilovers all around, bored and stroked Ford 351w putting out about 400hp and 500 ft-lbs, 40" stickies on beadlocks, dovetailed rear, full hydro steering.



Sans grille and radiator:




I tow the toys with a mildly tweaked 2008 Duramax, which serves double duty as winter commuter.

No pic's, but a 2004 GMC HD, 2009 Z06, 2012 CTS V-sedan, 2012 Camaro 2SS, and a 2012 GMC Yukon. The Corvette has been sitting since late October. The Camaro is my daily driver. The wife splits duties between the Yukon and the V.
