    Hmmm,

    1976 Lincoln Town Car, I was 14, dad bought brand new for my mom but she couldn't drive the monster, dad threw me the keys. Sun roof, 8 track quadraphonic stereo, oh man. I needed a pillow and a phone book,

    Fiat X19, brother gave me this when he bought a new Corvette, this car handled amazing, if it would could start, what a POS!

    1978 Tran Am, my 16th Birthday present, traded in the Fiat, sold the Lincoln.

    1979 Trans am at some point, trying to relive glory days, not the same, goodbye

    1974 VW Thing, brightest yellow possible, I loved that thing

    1969 Cadillac Fleetwood coupe Calais, 472 cid 375 hp American awesomeness.

    1976 Jeep Cherokee, never once got stuck.

    199x Dodge shadow es, not a bad car, first car I bought new and paid for myself. Insurance companies me show them the motor, all their computers said it was a turbo, but it wasn't. It was in mint condition when I handed my ex wife the keys, a year latter it was trashed.

    19xx Toyota Tercel ez, I owned this while I tried living in California for a while, I was was glad to be rid of both.

    1985 corvette, fun, fast and uncomfortable.

    A geo metro, I rebuilt the 3 cyl motor and sold, my tin can days are over.

    1995 Ford f150 extended cab 4x4, bought new and owned for 14 years, one month the radio, brakes and AC all went out, time to say goodbye

    M35a2 with whistler turbo, just for fun, and crossing the flooded creek.

    2010 Ford f350 extended cab srw, long bed 4x4, diesel, twin turbo monster. Bought new, Had for one year, super rough ride on my long private dirt road with 5 creek crossings, goodbye

    2012 Ford f150 extended cab stx 4x4,bought new, Cadillac ride, but not tough enough for my road. Hmm. Goodbye

    2013 Ford f250 single cab John Wayne 4x4...Bought new, just right. Paid off, I'm done.

    Moved off the dirt road...

    1999 Ford escort zx2, bought as a first learner car for my wife, she's 38 and has never driven, I will drive as a commuter car to save miles on the ford f250 and save some $.

    A few motorcycles,
    1976 Honda xl70, 13th birthday present
    198x Suzuki Gn 400, single cylinder vibration machine! Full fairing, No electric start
    201x Yamaha xt 225 bought new
    200x Honda vlx 600 deluxe with chrome package, bought new.

    Done.

    To make a long story short, my '94 Tracer is my first car, at age 31. I learned to drive on my wife's 2009 Prius, which got totaled by a semi on Interstate 88 outside of Chicago on my way to work. That got replaced by a 2012 Lexus CT200h, which is my wife's car.

    1973 Olds 98- I learned to drive this car at age 8. My grandmother would let me drive, and she'd sit in the middle. Pedals and all, in Chicago.

    1976 Pacer: Used to be my mom's car, I used to drive it to Junior High (without her knowing when she was on vacation). Until my brother saw me and made me bribe him with an Atari cartridge for his silence... Once I was old enough to drive it became my first car.

    1982 Suzuki GN 125. I still have it. I think I have 38k on it. 125cc, full 12v electric start, full dress with a stereo windshield and luggage. Think of it as a 1/3 scale Gold Wing....:)

    1986 Isuzu Pup (Pickup). Work truck, very dependable. Had it 10 years.

    1986 Yugo. Despite what people say it was a decent car for us. Not really any issues. My first stick car. I was never shown how to drive a stick, I just got in it and taught myself.

    1986 Cavalier

    1992 Cavalier, decent car, but it had a problem of the ignition shutting off like you took the key out- while driving. Dealer couldn't find the problem. New owner never had the problem.

    1972 Mercedes: I really miss this car. Thought it was cool. At school we used to call them "Mafia Staff Cars".

    1995 Ford Escort (#1) I bought it for my wife in 1996 with 12k on it. I just got rid of it last year.

    1995 Ford Escort (#2) I bought it off of E Bay for $1300 with 84k original. It's a daily driver. I planning on this being my "last car". It's an exact copy of #1, it even came off the line 8 days after the first one. The ONLY difference between the 2 cars is the cassette player vs AM/FM.

    MANY tractor trailers, I have 1.7 million miles in an 18 wheeler.

    I found a pic of my old Mercedes.

    Since this was a daily driver- and my only car, I had to keep it mobile. That looks safe, right? I drove it like that for 2 years.

    I'm curious about the possibility that you've owned more cars than I've owned pairs of socks. None of my socks have had remote start though.........

    Yes I was online when she freaked out. She did not like the pot bong post and are post pic's of your EX girlfriend.

    I told her pot was legalized in most states and will be legal in Canada in a few weeks.

    But I think he or she was only looking for a reason to make drama and leave.

    I've probably owned more cars myself than socks!

    Just bought an 05 focus S, sangria red, automatic, 104k miles. I call her stinky, cos the previous owner smoked in it and it reeks!

    Bought a car for the second time. 97 wagon. I bought it from a little old lady, sold it back to her, and bought it back from her again.

    Somewhere in here I had my dad's 91 lebaron for a while. It sat in storage for 3 years because he was waiting to register it as a classic. It was moldy inside and one of the brake calipers was stuck so it smoked when I was driving it home.

    Also bought an 09 focus SES coupe that was wrecked in the front and fixed it up and sold it

    Then I bought an 08 focus SES sedan that had a bunch of stuff wrong with it (including blown airbags) and I fixed it up so it's road legal now.
