21 years old.

2001 Volvo S60 2.4T (Cosmos Blue Metallic). Totalled when I hit a RAV4 in June 2007, I still miss this car dearly.

1999 Volvo V70 GLT (Barents Blue). This car was responsible destroying my wallet. Sold in August 2008 for about 3 grand or so after I got sick of fixing everything that went wrong.

2001 Saturn SW2 (Red): Got for free from my uncle, drove until October 2010 when the transmission died. Currently carless, but might be getting a Focus in a month or two.

21 years old.

1991 Ford F150
1987 Saab 9000 Turbo
1998 Subaru legacy
1986 Buick Rivera
2000 Ford focus SE wagon

The Ford F150 I traded for the Saab, then the Saab trans went a yr and a half later, then I picked the Subaru up for a little while, got tired of it and gave it to mother( who is still driving it at almost 300k, and after the Subaru I needed a car, and found the Buick for a steal, ($500), and the Buick is having all sorts of electrical problems, and my GF got the zx3, so I took her mothers old car she wasn't driving anymore and rebuilt the motor. <( the focus wagon)

It's a little bit of a shame about the Buick, It only has about 107k on the motor, but it's only worth maybe $500 at blue book value, so it will probly end up at the junk yard, unless someone comes along and wants it?
2000 SE wagon 2.0l Zetec.

My cars...

I seem more biased towards Ford than I actually am here. I do love Ford, but it seems like I am a purist:

64 Galaxie - Still own. Yet to be restored

76' Gran Torino - Still in the family - somewhere

93 Escort GT - R.I.P.

86 Chevy Nova - R.I.P.

84 Datsun 200SX - sold

96 Escort LX - Still moving - barely

12' Focus - Delivered this Friday!

Some nice rides in the prior posts for sure.

I'm 48 and have had the following cars, which are listed in the order I bought them.

72 Ford Maverick Grabber (250 CID 6 cyl)
70 Ford Mach 1 (351C 2v)
70 Ford Mach 1 (351C 4v)
79 Ford Mustang (2.3 turbo)
82 Ford Mustang GT (5.0)
90 Ford Taurus SHO (3.0)
01 Ford Mustang Cobra convertible (4.6) still have this one
00 Ford Mustang Cobra R (5.4) still have this one
86 Ford Mustang SVO (2.3 turbo)
03 Ford Focus SVT (2.0) still have this one

The SVTF gets driven the most, and is what I'm likely to replace next. The 2 Cobras sit in the garage and don't get driven that much, but are great fun when I do drive them.
2003 SVTF 3 door Infra-Red
Mods:K&N drop in, Predator Tom's Tune, Cabin Air filter
