-91 Corolla 5spd. Only had like 80 horses but it was manual so it was still a fun little beater.
-95 Taurus V6 (even though it felt like a 4banger...) I hated that stupid heavy car...most boring cars ever built...

That reminds me of that that 67 Volkswagen camper .... with the way the seating was, the first thing to arrive at an accident was YOU!

1981 Chevy Luv (pickup). I-4, glass packs. Very fun untill I broke the oil pan. R.I.P. 12 hours.
1987 Subaru GL. By far the toughest car I have ever owned. Ever go jumping? (It is still running, 8 years after I sold it)
1992 Mazda 323. A kick-a$$ car untill I got it.
1994 Probe GT. Awesome car for the time. Chipped (bwaggggghhh).
2002 SVTF. I don't get beat by Nissan Mini-Vans anymore.

Now a reply from the other side of the world (the poor side):

1978 Volkswagen Beetle (we call it "Fusca")
1980 Chevrolet Chevette (a.k.a. 2nd. generation Opel Kadett)
1986 Chevrolet Chevette
1991 Ford Escort (european model)
1996 Ford Escort Sedan (a.k.a. Orion)
2001 Ford Focus Sedan

The Escorts had Volkswagen engines and transmissions (1.8 liter notchback and 2.0 liter sedan) because of the ill-fated Latin American joint-venture between Ford and VW that existed at the time.
