1st- 1992 Honda Accord. It was my mom's answer was really beat up, but it was a 5-speed and I loved it.

2nd- New 2001 Toyota Celica GT 5-speed. Lowered, intake, exhaust, strut tower braces, rims, adjustable shocks, carbon fiber hood. That car was through things you couldn't even imagine. I traded it in after 16 months, 57000 miles, 3 engines, and one time caught street racing. It was loved and it is missed.

3rd- New 2001 Isuzu Vehicross. It's got a 3" lift, and 32's. Treated just like the Celica except in the woods. With only 1800 miles on it I stalled out in a huge mud puddle and it filled with water up to the seats. Lol that basically sums up its life. It's spend a lot of time in the woods and is by far my favorite vehicle. I don't drive it really at all, but still own it.

4th- 1996 Chevy Lumina. Commuter car. What can you say about a Lumina?

5th- 2010 Toyota Highlander. It does everything I need it to. It's nice, but not my style. I'm not really a fan of crossovers, but like I said it does everything I need it to well.

6th- 2008 Saturn Aura. At $6800 with 22000 miles on it in perfect shape how could I not buy it? It's a good car. My driving time is spent between this and the Highlander with the occasional day in the Vehicross.

6/17 were GM products. You gravitate towards them I suppose! ;)

I won't buy another GM product unless its a 90's or older. The new ones suck IMO. Even drove my diehard GM parents to Ford and that's saying something lol

Currently driving a 2011 Nissan Maxima SV (Sports + Premium). Very nice car.

I find the power steering to be a tad overly assistive at speed. I find the CVT transmission to be a tad noticeable when driving slowly down hill.

Fast and powerful 3.5 liter V6. Very peppy. Excellent self-leveling bi-xeon headlights make night driving better.

I love the interior. Super nice leather. Very comfortable heated and air conditioned seats. Nice Bose stereo system with iPod connection in the arm rest. XM. Reverse camera. Keyless entry and start. Nicest steering wheel I've ever had.

Like it better than the BMW I traded for it (though that car was the best driving car I have ever had) .

97 Saturn SL1 - A hand-me-down from my mom. 2.0l I4, maybe 100hp, fwd, automatic. An OK car but I didn't know how to treat cars yet so I destroyed it. Overheated every now and then, transmission would take about a decade to shift into reverse, suspension was all messed up. I drove it like a race car and took it powersliding through the dirt with my friends and stuff. Ended up totaling it (just cause the airbags went off) at like 4 AM going about 5 mph in a jack in the box parking lot. Jack in the box has since fixed their parking lot because so many people wrecked in the same place, so the way I wrecked is now impossible. I've hated jack in the box parking lots ever since.
Owned from about 110k to about 200k on the odometer (my sister was driving it, too, and my mom and dad every now and then, too).

92 Jeep Cherokee - 4.0 l, 220hp 260 lbft I6 rwd, automatic with an unlimited slip differential! Basically amounts to a one-wheel-drive jeep in slick conditions. Found on craigslist for a great price. Loved this car, but it leaked oil like a sieve. Had tons of power so I could take my drifting to (wet) pavement now, instead of dirt! My younger sister ended up merging it gently into another car on the highway so the whole right side was borked. Sold it back to someone on craigslist for just a little less than I paid for it once it wouldn't hold oil longer than a month. Probably the most dangerous-to-drive car I've ever owned.
Don't remember this one's odometer...

96ish Chevy S-10 - 2.0l I4 rwd with another unlimited slip and automatic. 1.5 cab and extended bed and BOLD YELLOW PAINT made this pickup stick out like a sore thumb. Everyone I knew called it the Banana, the Bananarama, or just the 'nana. ("How are we going to get to the gun range?" "Let's just take the 'nana"). Found it on craigslist being sold from an exterminator for a great price, it was their work truck, which is why it was bright yellow. Had 220k+ miles on it but still got good mileage. Motor started failing after I put about 25-30k miles on it. Gradually one cylinder stopped firing, then another started having problems and I had to get rid of it. Sold it back to someone on craigslist for only a little less than I paid for it.
Owned from 220k to about 260k on the odometer.

2001 Isuzu Hombre - 2.0l I4 rwd unlimited slip and my first manual transmission! Fell immediately in love with this car because of the stick-shift, but it sure had it's fair share of problems. Found on craigslist for a great price, it used to be a farm truck and the farm was bought out so they were selling off everything. Master cylinder had already failed once in this truck before I bought it, and it failed again after I put about 15k miles on it. Fixed that and the ECM fried. Fixed that and one of the pistons came loose and was about to throw its rod. My good friend drove it sideways off the road, with me in the passenger seat, on black ice in the desert in New Mexico and whacked a sign post with it, crunching in the outer part of the truck bed pretty bad and popping some tires, but the rest of the car was OK. Put another 30k on it and decided to sell once the sound of the piston rod changed a little. Back to craigslist for only a little less than I paid for it.
Owned from 65k to about 110k on the odometer.

98 Ford Explorer - 4.0l V6 225 hp 240 ftlb automatic with FOUR WHEEL DRIVE! Best car I've ever owned by a longshot. Bought it from my granddad when he wanted a new car. Leather seats (could use a needle and some thread), power windows (most of which work), and a good sound system. And fairly spacious. Great for yearly road trips up to ski in Colorado. Imagine my glee when driving around on ice in a car with more than ONE powered wheel. Great for towing my boat. In snowy parking lots on the side of a mountain, it can drift like a beast. This Ford compared to all of the other Chevys I've owned make me want to never drive another Chevy in my life. Still driving it today.
Owned from 140k to 175k and counting!

AND MY BOAT (not a car duh, but totally counts):
1976 Chrysler Sport Fury - Inboard/Outdrive 2.0l I4 100 hp Volvo B130. 16 ft fiberglass cathedral hull. Take it out to Lake Travis and Lake Austin every chance I get (I live in Austin, TX). Got it as a "graduation gift" from an aunt and uncle out in California. Basically it ran into some concrete barriers while it was being towed and tore a hole in the side of the fiberglass hull. I patched the fiberglass and fixed up the rest of the boat with some better equipment (new stereo, etc). Can pull skiers out of the water with three passengers in the boat no problem. Max speed about 40 mph. Can hold 6 passengers but 4 is 100x more comfortable. This boat makes my whole life better.
No clue about how many hours it's been run in its lifetime...! Probably a lot!

First car was a 1971 Chevy Vega. I bought it from the the Navy recruiter that got me to enlist in the Navy. Yep, a sucker like me doesn't come along every day. . .

Dodge Polaris? Hell I thought i was the only guy left that knew what that was...lol 400 big block. That bastich would light the tires in a major way. The green one I had was ugly green but in mint condition. Like 10 MPG. And 129 was top speed before handling was an issue. Comfy ride for its time too. Turns out that make and model dodge was used in many many movies for stunts and chases in the 70s due to its price and build quality. Anyway I had to through that out there to you! Lol peace!

:cool:
