There is no way I'm going to get them all but here are the good ones:

1971 Chevelle (LS7 - 4 Speed)
1971 Trans Am (455 - 4 Speed)
1971 Dart (340 - 4 Speed)
1974 El Camino (454)
1974 Chevy 1/2 Ton (396 Balanced & Blueprinted)
1981 Z28
1986 Mustang GT
2003 Nissan Maxima SE (With Chip)

I have had a few more but those are the ones that got me into the most trouble! It should be noted that I now drive a mini van. How times have changed..................

OK here we go

1979 Honda Prelude (ahh the memories)

1986 YUGO, yah that's right YUGO. This was the best car ever. I bought it with 6000 miles on it for $500. It was therapy on wheels. My friends and I all drove junkers for our first cars (some of us still do) and it became almost a contest who could have the most ridiculous. Let me tell you friends I was top of the list with this 4 on the floor badboy. It had a broken exhaust so it sounded like a completely hyped out Porsche. We would be buckled over in laughter every time we got in this car. I would drive the thing like Mario Andretti all around town and people would always look thinking they were going to see some $50K sports car and then they would see the cheapest car ever, rolling by with a bunch of kids all bent over laughing themselves to death. It was awesome.

1985 Honda CRX SI

1988 Chevy S-10 4.3L (this thing was so light and peppy that it would do a mini burn out just when you would drop it into gear)

1988 Honda CRX SI

1986 Chevy Astro Conversion Van. (used to make the move from freezing Massachussetts to sunny California .. . .ahhhh)

1987 Mazda 626

1986-7 Chevy El-Camino. Come on girls you know you love these ones. (Every girl I have ever known says these were the biggest chick anti-magnets ever built). Still loved the car though. . I mean come on. Its a car and a pickup truck. SWEET. I actually ended up turning this car around for a nice little profit. I have never received so many calls on a Saturday morning as the day I put that badboy in the paper.

1988 Volkswagon GTI and a 1986 Yamaha Virago 700. El Camino allowed me to split and buy both. Had a ton of issues with the VW and vowed never to buy a VW again.

1986 Volkswagon Sirroco. It was a great deal ok! Had a ton of issues and vowed NEVER to buy a VW again.

1993 Ford Escort LX Car I owned the longest which I can't believe. Stopped buying and selling cars every 8 months because this one ran so good or I got tired of haggling with people.

1992 Honda Civic DX. The escort died or nearly and I inherited the wifes car that she would not drive anymore due to it being such a beater. (Can't kill these damn Hondas)

Where are you Axiom owners?

Ooooh, I forgot:
I owned a GTI for two hours..... my two hours of impracticality among a lifetime of ho-humobiles.

The dealer assured me that the oil light was on because of a faulty sending unit. I bought it on my lunch hour at work, and left work early that day. About eight miles from work and one mile from home, the engine seized. I walked home and called the bank to put stop payment on the check and called the dealer and told them where on the median they would find their car.

They offered to put a new engine in it but I didn't trust the mechanics at the dealership after that. I bought a new LeMans instead which got me where I needed to go for quite a few years.

But man...I had a few hours of owning something fun to drive....

I'll be murmuring that over and over again in the nursing home...

Wow. Now that's a question that can certainly make you feel dated.

Let's see:

1972 Chevy Pickup
1984 Toyota Carolla Hatchback
1969 VW Karmann Ghia
1987 Isuzu Trooper II
2000 Beetle
1994 VW Jetta
2001 Hyundai Santa Fe
2002 Ford Explorer
2004 Ford Excursion Diesel

Man, I didn't think I owned but a couple.
Axiom stuff, Denon stuff, & Sony stuff

My list is short, so I'll do colors too. The first two were my parents cars that I was the main driver on for at least some period of time. The rest I bought and paid for myself.

1984 White Honda CRX
1991 Black Acura Integra
1992 Red/Maroon Saturn (SL maybe...whatever their basic sedan was called back then)
1996 Green Acura Integra GS-R Hatchback (this car was lots of fun, and could transport things around too with the hatch!)

Current: Black 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX

Future? I like the Lotus Elise, not that I could see spending 40k+ on a car. I'm interested in the return of the Nissan Skyline GT-R in a couple of years as well. It is supposed to be back as part of the Infiniti line. We'll see what else. I figure I have about two years left before I am ready for a new vehicle.

On my wife's side, she has a Blue 2000 Audi A4 Quattro, which just got paid off this month!

man, all you guys are junkies!! i've only had two vehicles, here's the short list...

1982 Ford F-100 pickup
1998 Mazda 626

i friggin' loved that truck like it was my kid. Ford's inline 6, 400 cc. it was my first ride, my Dad's old hunting truck, low miles but tons of character! but one day.... my wife was driving it...and she killed it. *sniff* i dont know what the hell she did (she swears up and down nothing) but that sucker was dead, i couldn't figure out what the hell was wrong. but since at that point i was driving about 90 miles roundtrip to work we got the Mazda short notice. i friggin hate this car, mostly 'cause it's not my truck. i'm looking at the Toyota Prius now, does anyone have one or any experience with them?

In reply to:

Hey Ash, was that by any chance a 300 c.i. as opposed to a 400cc engine? My '85 F-150 had the inline 300 c.i., built like a tank engine. A 400 cc engine is what you'll see in a typical 4 stroke dirt bike.

Like you, I really loved that old truck!

>>Just curious... how many of us currently have a small car+a shooting brake (aka wagon)?

Does a Jeep and a Magnum with slide out gun drawers count ? I always wanted a shooting brake, now I finally have one. Only problem is that I end up taking the Jeep on most of the hunting trips because there are usually 20-30 miles of hydro trails between the road and the hunt camp...
