1980 Chevy Monza with the 4 cylinder engine. It was actually a good little car until some drunk ran a red light and totaled it.

68 VW Squareback that I paid $500 for. Had I known what I had then I would still have it today. I loved that car because it was fun to drive and easy to work on(even though it seemed We were always working on it), but I beat the piss out of it. We "dropped" it using blocks of wood under the leaf springs, lol. It would scrape on speed bumps, pretty much every time. Good times...

2000 Volvo S40. Bought it from a shady dealer. Airbag light was on when I test drove, told dealer to fix it or I would not buy the car. Came back the next day and it was off. Paid $5,750 for the car. Next week the airbag light comes back on. Off to the dealer. Airbag was shorted out. wTF. Paid $1,000 for a new airbag.

Spent almost $2,000 on repairs over the next two years of ownership. She never left me stranded though. Sold it to a kid for his first car for $5,250. Still know where it lives. I drive by sometimes.

First car .... 1962 Pontiac Grand Prix, purchased in 1969. Good, but not great. It was that or a 1960 Ford Thunderbird. Regretted not getting the T-Bird almost immediately.

Black 97 Nissan Sentra... went on a 3k mile cross country drive to FL with it. Had black Rota wheels on it and a custom grill. Traded it in for my previous SAAB (before i had my 06 Focus) and I still see it near my place of work.

First car....

1992 Subaru SVX



Second car....

1992 Subaru SVX



Third car..........

1995 Subaru SVX



Current car is my Focus. I loved those Subarus... miss them a lot. I didnt own all three at once, but I did have the two green ones together. Ended up selling all of them. So expensive to fix. Regretting it all the time, especially the last one, it was soooo clean.
