The list is long, in order, the best I can remember.

84 Chevy Chevette
88 VW Golf
93 Ford Probe GT
89 VW GTi 16v
92 VW Jetta GLi
01 Chevy Blazer ZR2
84 VW GTi 16v swap
84 VW GTi 8v (currentaly for sale)
74 Jeep DJ-5
98 Chevy Cavalier (currentaly for sale)
94 VW Corrado SLC
89 VW Corrado G60
95 Jeep Grand Cherokee
03 Nissan Sentra Se-R Spec V

I still have the 2 Jeeps, the 84 GTi 8v, the 98 Cavalier, and the 03 Se-R. Most of the cars were projects that I completed and then sold. I still have never owned less than 3 cars at a time. Thats the problem with having space to keep them. I wish I could get down to only 1 car, but good deals come up too often.

If anyone is interested in the GTi or the Cav, let me know! e-mail me at: jailbird1818@hotmail.com
'06 Scream Yellow ZX3 SES, Factory SAP, H&R Coilovers, Kuhmo SPTs on RS Wheels, EBC Green Pads

First car was a 98 Mercury mystique. Second car was this:

That's just before I traded her in on my SVT. I had 17" chrome cobra R's on it and it looked mean like that. I kinda miss her sometimes....4.6L V8 and rear drive. Had custom dual exhaust with flowmasters turned down at the back...sounded mean as hell, had a nice deep growl to it
