So I guess I'll still be around here long after most of you have left.

I'm only 25 (and still a student), so keep in mind that I'll own many more :)

1. (2001-2002) 1990 Ford Escort GT



2. (2003-2004) 1990 Toyota Corolla SR5



3. (2004-Present) 2002 VW GTI 1.8T



4. (2011-??) 2011 Jetta v. 2012 Focus --?

**none of the pictured cars are actually my photos...**

Had 3 accidents with the Escort GT within 18 months... (1) Deer, (2) Old guy pulled out in front of me (3) swerved to avoid a groundhog and hit an embankment...giving my first and only Ford an untimely death).

Favorite car all-around was the Escort GT, but I love my GTI. Haven't been impressed with all the little crap on it breaking, but unlike my Corolla, it's never left me on the side of the road (just knocked-on-wood).

I really like the look of the new focus and will be pitting it against the Jetta for what car I drive next.

Trying to decide what car to get, and not getting much help over on the Vortex.

Wow, what a question....

Too many to list would be the first response...

1967 TR4A IRS
1953 Willys Wagon - traded the Triumph for it...
1976 FIAT 128 3P Coupe - first new car - lots of memories...
1981 Plymouth Champ twin stick - fun with Addco sway bars
1982 FIAT X1/9 Fun!
1975? FIAT 128 Rally Sedan (2dr) (for Wife)
1985 Alfa Romeo GTV6 - FAST GT car - loads of fun..
1985 Plymouth Tourismo 2.2 - Rally car project never completed - fun w/factory rally susp.
1985 Ford F150 Stepside, 6 cyl. 5spd - good for work, but only 10,000 per clutch with lightweight economy setup (1' smaller clutch) EPA economy trans.
Colt Turbo - lots of fun
Couple 4WD Eagles
Short term buy/fix/sell
VW Sirrocco
Citroen
Saab 900S
VW Rabbit convertible

1986? FIAT X1/9 - (again!)
1995 Chevy S-10 - great long term work ride, haven't got around to fixing/selling yet due to fuel leak at pump - project list now but was great for years..
1991 Toyota 4WD P/U - dropped in my drive by acquaintance, ended up fixing & driving for a couple years.
2004 Focus ZTS - current DD and fun car, SVT whls. on now - Tach. cluster upgrade - SVT suspension coming...

at least a couple short termers not listed, along with some BST cars - think the list is long enough....

Oddballs along the way would be the Renault LeCar and a VW van, can't forget those...
