Use mine to go to school (am old enough to drive :lol: ;) ) and for carp fishing. Looked at lots of possibilities, but came back to a Caddy (again) as its perfect for my needs and I love 'em!

Mine gets me to work if that counts. The most my van is ever going to take is perhaps 2 or 3 bikes and me and a mate.

Wouldn't change it though. So glad I bought one, so much fun to drive.

Mines for work. 14000 miles in five months often loaded with about 600kg
Runs on 18" bbs lms, coilovers and flipped axle but still get it on site. You just have to bea bit cautious
Only thing its just too slow!!!

My daily motor

Always potching with something. Such a versatile motor. Handy for carrying stuff, camping etc

Was thinking of my next motor... A newer caddy!!

mines used as a daily driver and play vehicle for camping and weekends away.... up until this year always had a car and a t4 but decided to chop them both in and buy the caddy to do the jobs of both................ and pulls it off really well...

Only motor (except two motorcycles) used for most everything - bought as a business runabout though.
No need to load it to the gunnels, but always have the option to chuck a pallet of gear in the back.
When I'm mooching about it looks pretty cool and is way more personal than a car.
It's a lightly modded, gently dropped Ed30, so looks pretty unique and gets plenty of stares - especially from those in the know.
