The passat, not the neon, neon is my brothers, man i miss that car. Perfect leather seats, had lots of MOMO goodies in it, and the best engine ever made 12V VR6.

But, it was a never ending money pit of repairs and headaches.

As you can see, I come from a largely Ford/Mazda family. Out of all though, the Pontiac was the best car in terms of reliability, oddly enough.

'03 Ford Focus (Just bought it a month ago so the jury is still out.

And believe me, I am not an Escort-head! That is just what fell into my lap when car shopping.

1974 VW-Porsche 914 1.7. I added all new Koni shocks and bored the engine to 1.9 L.

1995 Honda del Sol Si. Perfect condition. It was kept in Arizona and garaged in winter in Canada until last year. Sadly it was stolen in March 2005, just a month before I could have used the top again.
