Thanks, I think? I have an addiction to buying cars. Usually they are to cheap to pass up on, so I buy them, drive them awhile and then sell them on when the next deal comes up...

LOL! That's exactly how I bought cars for years. In fact, in my entire life, I have only bought one new car, and I was sorry I bought it. All other vehicles I bought were used, and the majority of them (dare I say it?) were Chevys. And then one day, I met a Foci. And it was love at first sight <g>.

My first car was a 94' Ford Escort LX.. Hatch, 5-speed, BMW silver

00' Chevy Camaro 3.8L
02' Ford Taurus SEL
87' Porsche 944 Turbo- 20k Original Miles!!
04' Nissan 350z
04' Saturn ION

And now I have my 04' SVT!! Its silver and it feels like a much better version of my first car- maybe that's why I like it so much! I have the Z too!

First: 1991 Ford Taurus - White, rusty, and free from my grandparents!

1994 Pontiac Grand Am 2 door - Not a bad car, wrecked in a spin and collision in winter.

1996 Pontiac Grand Am 4 door - $500 POS that lasted 6 months, til the end of high school.

1999 Ford Ranger 4x4 3.0L Sport - Favorite vehicle after the SVT. Looked like this:


Then it decided to play rollover on the freeway (damn glare ice):



2002 Saturn SL1 - Great college runabout car. 40 mpg, low cost of ownership, did exactly what it needed to do and nothing else.


SVT when I bought it:


SVT now:


Let's do the wife's cars too, since our cars are "our" cars

First: 199x Plymouth Sundance - Sold due to being "too rusty". I believe it is now a local restaurant delivery car, with tacky paint and graphics.

1997 Ford Escort SE - Sold at auction after head gasket failure and a crappy "fix" by local mechanic. She was driving this one when I met her at 16.

2000 Saturn SC2 - Bought with 56k miles in '09 sold with 119k in '12. 17.5k miles/year. We loved this car, put in a lot of miles and memories in it, and a very trouble-free ownership. It's what made me get my Saturn. Still miss it, but wife wanted a truck.


1999 Ford F150 4x4 4.6L - Bought this September with 69k miles.
