What did you drive before your SVT?

I still do drive my 944, but not very much anymore.

Before that I had the following:
1993 Ford Festiva (Black, 5-spd) (bought it as a joke for $300)
1991 VW Golf (Red, Auto)
1990 BMW 325i 4 door (White, 5-spd with M3 rear-end)
1987 BMW 325e 2 door
1986 BMW 325e 4 door
1988 Ranger XLT X-Cab (Silver, 2.9L Auto 2WD)

1997 Dodge Neon SOHC with the shorter-geared 5 speed manual. Power nothing and no A/C, but passed to my brother with no outstanding mechanical issues and the original clutch at 145k miles. Flog it for a week and you'll still get 30mpg, drive it nice and I got a steady 35mpg all summer long.

Too bad its a complete piece otherwise.

We've gone through this more than a few times in the general car chat...
But, seeing as you're only asking for SVT owners' input for this one...

I drove a 85 Bronco (8mpg on a good day) for at least 12 years and over 200,000 miles.
Ya shoulda seen the looks on some peoples' faces when I pulled up in the SVTF.
^^^Cracked me up. LOL!!

A Bronco I? Cool! We use to have a lifted '79 and that thing was REDICULOUS... 35" swampers, 411 gears with posi, 351M w/o exhuast (unintentional mod- belly pans were in the works!), lifted about 6", various plates of armor to ram through trees/brush, etc.

I always wanted to put a 6.8 trition in it but we had to get rid of it. I have some pictures of it somewhere...

Pretty much name it and I have had it!
Camaro, Firebird, Mustang, (4) Talon TSi, (4) Beretta GTZ, Cherokee, Corolla, Eagle Summit.... I could go on and on. My SVT is my 36th car. I am only 28. Sort of a sick/stupid fetish I have. Talon TSi AWD was the fastest (11.7@114 in full stock appearance) but my SVT ranks up high as far as enjoyment/handling.

^^^Last 2 posters...
I'm pretty sure Anaxagoras1986 just meant the preceding ride, not every one you've ever owned.
Is that right Adam??
