    So I was talking with Aly0124 this evening and we were talking about some of the cars I've had in passing throughout the years.

    That being said, I thought I would name the cars I've had in over the years and wanted to see what others have had.

    1. 1977 Fiat X1/9
    2. 1992 Dodge Dynasty
    3. 1993 Ford Mustang
    4. 1984 Porsche 911
    5. 1991 Isuzu Rodeo
    6. 1988 Mazda RX7
    7. 1999 Nissan Altima
    8. 2002 Nissan Xterra
    9. 1980 MGB (Still have)
    10. 2001 BMW 740iL
    11. 2010 Volkswagen Jetta (Still have)
    12. 1984 Trabant 601S (Still have)
    13. 1972 Trabant 601S
    14. 1991 Mazda RX7
    15. 199X Honda Prelude Factory Race Car
    16. 1977 Triumph TR7
    17. 1969 Datsun 2000
    18. 1939 Plymouth P-9 Roadking
    19. 1970 Lotus Europa
    20. 1966 Ford Galaxie 500

    There may be a couple I'm forgetting, but I think that is it.

    Since I helped inspire this post I thought I would list my own cars. However, they are not nearly as interesting as Justin's.

    1. 198X GMC Jimmy. This was only for a brief moment in time, thank goodness that's over.
    2. 1997 Mazda MX-6. I say this is my true "first" car.
    3. 2007 Nissan Sentra. Boring but it was a decent car.
    4.2010 Nissan Altima Coupe. Loved it, miss it.
    5. 2001 BMW 325i. It was nice, except for the fact it would not go in reverse.
    6. 2004 BMW 328ci. Had this for a brief time as well, BMW's are just too expensive to maintain.
    7. 2007 Volkswagen EOS. This is my current car, I LOVE it.
    8. 1985 Nissan 300zx. This was a car we bought to "flip" boy did that turn out bad!

    That is my car list. Maybe I can add something more unique that one day!

    A partial list of cars that I belonged to:

    #1- '68 SAAB 96, 3 cylinder, 2-cycle. A great car.
    #2- '64 VW Beetle. Fun, but I should have stuck with the SAAB.
    #3- '66 Austin Healy Sprite. Fun, but I should have stuck with the Beetle!
    #4- '70 AMC Hornet. Ick.
    $5- '69- Austin America. Transmission work, anyone?
    #6- '72 Ford Pinto Wagon. Got it in trade for fixing a Camero because it had a "bad motor" which I fixed. Decent car.
    #7- '71 Super Beetle.... uh, not really super. Had to put a rear window defogger on the WINDSHIELD
    #8- '75 Triumph Spitfire. My first "nice" car. ehh.
    #9- '67 Chevy Corvair. Great fun, but smoky heater!
    #10- '85 Suzuki SJ410. The predecessor of the Samurai, it was my first New Car. With 997cc, it was slower than a Trabi at 65mph tops.
    #11- '82 Ford Escort. Ehh. an OK car.
    #12- '84 Renault 5 "Le Car". a fun little car!
    #13- '87 Jeep Commanche. Bought almost new, it was OK.
    #14- '84 VW Rabbit. Drove this thing to 285,000 miles. It took a lot of repairs!
    #15- '85 Toyota Corolla. Drove to 283,000 miles, needing few repairs.
    #16- '92 Toyota Tercel. Drove to 283,000 miles, needing few repairs.
    #17- '92 Toyota Tercel automatic (yuk) Drove to 285,000 miles, needing few repairs
    #18- '96 Toyota Tercel, automatic (yuk). Still driving this one, it's a Fine Car. Oh, wait, I HATE Fine Cars...


    #19- '68 Sachsenring Trabant 601 Standard!
    Re-constructed in '87 and overhauled in 2012, Comrade Trabi is a curious mix of the old and the new. -ish.
    It seems that I'm back where I started, with a 2-cycle '68...

    All but 5 or 6 of "my" cars were manual transmission.

    Alongside and between #13 and #14 was a '59 MGA that I bought in pieces from a friend that needed the money. After re-building, it was fun.
    There was a Volvo 242 in there somewhere, good car.

    Ok This list is longer then I thought...

    #1 - 2004 Holden Commodore (Auto)
    #2 - 1998 Mitsubishi Magna (Auto)
    #3 - 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer (Auto) -> Horrible little car, completely gutless and not even that good at economy driving.
    #4 - 1991 Ford Festiva (Manual)
    #5 - 2002 Honda CR-V (Auto) -> I wrote that one off, not much damage externally, but I completely destroyed the transmission and a bunch of other linkages when the other car hit the front left wheel straight on.
    #6 - 2003 Honda CR-V Sports (Auto)
    #7 - 2003 Saab 9-5 ARC (Auto)
    #8 - 2001 Nissan Sunny Ex Saloon (Manual) Most boring car in the world, but nothing went wrong with it.
    #9 - 1977 Trabant 601 (Manual) Current*
    #10 - 1992 Toyota Celica (Manual) Current*

    Well, I'm only 16 (turning 17 this sunday) so i have only owned 2 cars:
    1: 1976 BMW 2002 with a street/track setup
    2: The 1983 Trabant that I'm currently working on

    BUUUT I have helped restore well over 30 Porsches, Some of the highlights of that:
    -Gulf Porsche 917k
    -Jaegermeister Porsche 962
    -A couple Porsche RSR's
    -Dr. Ferdinand Porsche's personal car, a Carrera prototype (It is a 356 base and was only one ever built)
    -A 1969 Porsche 911S with vintage race history from france (this was my dad's racecar for a wile)
    -a prototype Porsche 914-6
    -a factory Porsche 914-6 GT (there are only a couple)
    -The Porsche that Jeff Zwart set a record with at Pike's Peak
    And I know that I am missing a lot...

    Haha actually its just a primered car. But if you like Porsches, you would be in heaven if you saw Kundensport (my father's shop)!

    Well if you ever come across a naturally aspirated mid-late 70's-late 80's (Ideal would be 83-87) 911 Targa for just a ridiculous good deal, even if it needs a lot of work, let me know.
  14. Logan Palmer

    Honestly, give me a few hours and I can find you a car.

    Justin my dad actually has a 73 911 Targa E for sale. Its really only a shell, but its $4,000. My dad said he would look for a cheap Targa too.

    Justin Founder Moderator

    My dad used to have an 84, Black on Black Targa, stage 3 racing clutch and it was in pristine condition. I used to love driving it. That's why I really like those mid-80's models. The other car I want is a DeLorean

    I think I have (had) some interesting cars:

    My second car is a Delta Mini Cruiser, year 1982:



    This a the small web site that I have dedicated to my Mini Cruiser: https://sites.google.com/site/deltaminicruiser/

    My wife drives a Lada Niva.

    I had a Uaz 469B, year 1988:


    But my favourite car is my Peugeot 205 GTI, a little rocket ;-)


    I also have a dirt bike, Honda XR 600r which, as far as I know, is quite popular in the States:
