i had a 1986 acura integra... the firs year they were ever built... great little car.. paid 100 bucks for it, and beat the crap out of it every day... shoulda kept it..

a 1993 ford explorer xlt... biggerst piece of crap.. though i never had many problems with it, except for brakes, leaky sunroof, cracked leather front drivers seat, holes in the rear panels, suspension that would never stay aligned, horrible braking system9even after replacng rotors and calipers, HORRIBLE gas mileage.. about 10 to the gallon... a fuel gauge that never worked from day one.... bad oxygen sensors all the dam time.. went out more than i changed my shorts...

and then the focus...

only gripes are the lack of power from the 2.0 zetec... but more money should take care of that problem down the road

First: 1977 red Volkswagen Scirocco, I STILL miss that car, it had brown leather bucket seats and had a distinctive peachy smell from past air fresheners.

The Red One...

Also, I'll be keeping an eye out in 2008 for the new Scirocco!!

Second: 1991 Dodge Dakota
Third: Some year Volkswagen Beetle (my friend would always turn on the hazard lights
while I attempted to go up hill, it was a battle)

Forth: 1982 Honda Accord Hatchback
Fifth: 1991 Chevrolet Caprice (the only ATX of the group)
Sixth: 2006 Ford Focus ZX3 S (mmmmm, Focus!)

My SVTF was just added to the pack. At the time of purchase, I had a '99 Lightning, '99 Wrangler, '01 Explorer. The Jeep and Explorer are the daily drivers.

Just prior to my '03 Focus ZTW, I drove a 2000 Audi A6 Avant. Great car to drive, but since it has 68K when I bought it a year and a half earlier, it needed fairly frequent repairs. And those repairs were ALWAYS over $1,000. --- each time.
