How many cars have you owned
 
Like the title says, how many cars have you owned and how old are you?

I'll start, just shy of 22 years old and I've owned 7 cars:

1. '89 gmc Jimmy (k5 blazer)
2. '95 lincoln continental
3. '69 Chevy Chevelle
4. '00 Dakota v6 4x4
5. '00 Dakota R/T 5.9
6. '03 SVTF
7. 09 F-150 supercrew slt 4x4

So on average since I've been legal to drive I've bought a car every year [facepalm]

43 Years old
1) 76 Mercury Marquis - used
2) 92 VW Jetta - used
3) 94 Topaz - bought new
4) 02 VW Passat - bought new (still own it)
5) 07 BMW 328i - bought new (still own it)
6) 09 Ford Focus - bought new(still own it)

The guy who is 22 years and has had 7 cars either has alot of money to burn, gets his mommy and daddy to buy his toys, or blows all his money on cars !!! I suspect I got it right with one of the 3 reasons.

I got my license the day I turned 16 and have only had 6 cars in 27 years of driving. However, here's one you have not heard of. I also own 7 pinball machines of which 3 I bought brand new.

... or how about I have worked my rear off...

the only vehicle given to me was the '89 jimmy when I turned 16, parents bought it when I was born and gave it to me because it wasn't being driven hardly at all. Bought the Chevelle in highschool and restored it learning along the way, sold it when I went to college for a profit then bought it back months ago and just sold it again... once again at a profit. Bought the lincoln for a grand and fixed it up and drove it for a year and about broke even on it. The Dakota R/T I bought wrecked and never finished and sold it. The 2000 Dakota I bought when I graduated high school cash and traded it on the f-150 I just bought. Finally the SVTF I bought on a whim when I was 19 and got a loan by myself since I had 1-tier credit established and they were handing out loans like food at a soup kitchen. Throughout college I worked 25-40 hours a week and 60 a week during the summer. Finally graduated with my bachelor's about three weeks ago and I have a decent job and I've always made very very good money thanks to ingenuity and drive.... and no I don't blow all my money on cars but thanks for judging me when you have no idea [poke]
