Got first car in 1988, as soon as I got my license. Was a gift from my grandfather because he had it sitting around not doing anything and gave it to me. Got laughed at in school a bit, but hey, it was free and amazingly reliable.

1980 Fairmont wagon (6 cylinder, 4 speed.. this thing was a beast and wouldn't die)
1983 Escort
1985 Mitsubishi Starion (warped vanes in turbo not letting it cool down, RIP)
1986 Suburban
1992 Tempo
1993 Taurus
2005 Focus (first car I ever bought brand new, still going strong).

And my baby...which I had to sell 2 years ago because I didn't have a garage for it, and needed $$ for down payment on a home. Plus the gallons per mile was pretty painful at the pump.

1969 Plymouth GTX (440, 727 w/ manual valve body, 3" exhausts, headers, cam, Dana 60 rear end).

Still full of regret and sadness about that sale, but it was to my uncle, so I know it's in good hands.

cars I've owned

I won't tell you my age... women just don't talk about that.
Cars owned:

1972 Mercury Comet 6cyl automatic 2 door... purchased in 1988 $100, traded in 1989 for $300.
1979 Toyota Corolla 2T 4cyl probably stick shift, can't remember $750 1989
1974 Dodge Dart who cares what it was or how much. I hated it... automatic 4door
I drove it one month and got rid of it in 1991.
1981 Honda Civic CvCC 4cyl Stick shift two door silver forget how much ... in 1991.
1981 Ford Courier Long Bed 2.3l 4cyl, 5spd LOVED IT! $400. I drove this for 12 years!
Same engine, and one replaced clutch, starter and alternator. 1992 - 2004 ... I gave it to an aspiring teenager who wanted to learn how to work on vehicles. Great donation, and easy to work on... She gladly accepted.
1989 Ford F150 6cyl, with granny gears maybe a 5spd? - Gifted... from my step dad in 1999. Gave it away in 2001.
1989 Honda Civic 4cyl automatic 4door $1000 bought that in 2000. Sold in 2002 for $500
2001 Honda Rebel 250cc black. Bought it new, and I still own it.
1985 Nissan 300xz Turbo $2500 2002. I still own it.
1989 Dodge Colt 4cyl stick two door maybe $900 in 2005. Sold it for $750 in 2006
198-ish Subaru AWD Legacy Automatic 6cyl boxer engine 2006 $1000 Gave it to the junk yard in 2006.
1991 Ford Ranger Extended Cab 2WD 2.3l 5spd $800 in 2006. I still own it.
2006 Kawasaki 500 Vulcan 2cyl 6spd two seater. $2000 Purchased in 2008. I still own it.
2005 ST Focus ZX4 purchased in 2008 with 32k miles for $10,000 we know the rest of the story. "I still own it"
so, two bikes and two cars, and a truck... all stick shifts... Seeing a trend here?
4 Fords (well, an ole mercury) 3 out of the 4? --- 2.3litres... I must have a hankering for them ;-)
Yes, on the rare occasion, I give trucks away... I wonder who will get my Ranger!?
