I still do drive my 944, but not very much anymore.

Before that I had the following:
1993 Ford Festiva (Black, 5-spd) (bought it as a joke for $300)
1991 VW Golf (Red, Auto)
1990 BMW 325i 4 door (White, 5-spd with M3 rear-end)
1987 BMW 325e 2 door
1986 BMW 325e 4 door
1988 Ranger XLT X-Cab (Silver, 2.9L Auto 2WD)

1997 Dodge Neon SOHC with the shorter-geared 5 speed manual. Power nothing and no A/C, but passed to my brother with no outstanding mechanical issues and the original clutch at 145k miles. Flog it for a week and you'll still get 30mpg, drive it nice and I got a steady 35mpg all summer long.

Too bad its a complete piece otherwise.

We've gone through this more than a few times in the general car chat...
But, seeing as you're only asking for SVT owners' input for this one...[;)]

I drove a 85 Bronco (8mpg on a good day) for at least 12 years and over 200,000 miles.
Ya shoulda seen the looks on some peoples' faces when I pulled up in the SVTF. [eek]
^^^Cracked me up. LOL!!

A Bronco I? Cool! We use to have a lifted '79 and that thing was REDICULOUS... 35" swampers, 411 gears with posi, 351M w/o exhuast (unintentional mod- belly pans were in the works!), lifted about 6", various plates of armor to ram through trees/brush, etc.

I always wanted to put a 6.8 trition in it but we had to get rid of it. I have some pictures of it somewhere...

Pretty much name it and I have had it!
Camaro, Firebird, Mustang, (4) Talon TSi, (4) Beretta GTZ, Cherokee, Corolla, Eagle Summit.... I could go on and on. My SVT is my 36th car. I am only 28. Sort of a sick/stupid fetish I have. Talon TSi AWD was the fastest ([email protected] in full stock appearance) but my SVT ranks up high as far as enjoyment/handling.

I'm pretty sure Anaxagoras1986 just meant the preceding ride, not every one you've ever owned. [;)]

1994 Geo Prizm 5 spd...it was free! Luckily one of the salesmen I work with had a "spare car" that he used for the winter months (His Firebird wasn't exactly good in the snow) so he offered me the Priz. Still runnin strong almost 3 years later and I just hit 177,777 today!

1989 Chevy Cavalier (first ride the family ever owned, parents got rid of it soon after i bought my focus and my sister got her car)

1998 Dodge Durango (moved on up after my sister got her license so i got to borrow Daddy's car while she handled the beastly cavalier)

2002 SVTF (First car that i can really call my own...)

along side the Durango there's a 2003 Honda Accord and a 2004 Mazda 3 (Mothers and Sister's respectively) that i will occasionally "borrow" if i don't feel like taking mine or if theirs is in the way.
