    My first car was this. '65 2+2. I bought it my senior year in highschool.

    1965mustang.jpg

    Then these...

    '76 Toyota Corolla Liftback SR5
    '70 Bronco Sport
    '93 Mustang Cobra
    '75 F-250 Hi-Boy
    '98 Escort ZX3
    2011 Fiesta
    2018 Cherokee Trailhawk

    My daily driver is the Fiesta and the wife drives the Cherokee. I still drive the F-250 every once in a while. The rest are sold. Not many cars for 39 years.

    1935 Morgan Super Sports three-wheeler with stock 998cc Matchless v-twin. A bit like a Sopwith Camel without the wings -- didn't have a machine gun but if you opened up the throttle (hand lever on the steering wheel) it sounded like one. I had several Morgans (three and four wheels) during the mid/late '60s but this one was by far my favourite.

    Other machines that came and went include an MGA, MGB, Lotus Elan+2, Alfa Romeo Spyder, Alfa Romeo 166 (love Alfas almost as much as Morgans) and loads of mundane stuff in between.

    My first car I owned was a 1974 Plymouth Duster I bought for $500 in 1990. The only other car I’ve owned that stands out a little was a 1987 Mustang LX 5.0. Everything else has been just new pickup trucks every few years.

    Living in the rust belt you don't want to look back on the cars you've loved and watched rust away.
    Too depressing. :)

    Never fall in love with anything that can't love you back!

    My first car was an old Humber Sceptre, mostly made of filler and bits of oil can. When I drove it 300+ miles to Cornwall I got someone to take a photo of me by the Lands End sign as I knew no one would believe it got there.

    Then several Ford Anglias, some with the obligatory wide wheels, Austin 1300 and a big old Vauxhall estate.

    After that a poo brown Minivan, S Type Jag and a string of GTIs - Golf, Peugeot, MGs, Astra Sri, etc.

    Probably quite a few would be collectible now.

    I've never really been very practical about cars and currently have a Vauxhall softop.

    I can’t count all the cars I’ve owned in the past 50 years. My first was a brand new ‘72 Dodge Dart. It was a POS, made at the low point of American car manufacturing, the so called “assembly line blues” era.
    Some of the notables:
    Oldsmobile Cutlass with leather landau top and corduroy velour seats (the epitome of cheesy but all the rage back then).
    Toyota Celica
    280zx
    Numerous Honda’s
    Volvo GL (the poor man’s Mercedes)
    Numerous Nissans
    Several Acura’s
    Only one Ford (a Tbird) and no Chevys, Buicks or Pontiacs.
    I have zero pictures of my cars, past or present.
    Now I have a Honda CRV. My next (last) vehicle will be another SUV.

    I've been through a lot of cars. My favorites were an 83 BMW 320i I had whole living in Germany and the Infiniti Q50 we currently have.

    I’m car addicted. I just love anything with 4 wheels. If I was to post pics of every car I’ve ever had, they’d have to build a new internet. My addiction got worse, when I worked selling cars. We would get a new dealer demo to drive, every 5k miles. Variety is the spice of life!
    Here’s just a few pics I have handy:

    I'm a lot younger than some of you but might have a few beat with my first car! I turned 15 and started driving in 2004 and this was my ride...

    2017-07-01-1968-Other-1-3173-1200.jpg

    Picture I found online, not my actual car. It was a 1968 Oldsmobile Delmont 88! With a hard top of course. It was in my family from 1968 to 2009 when I traded it for a 1975 Rickenbacker 4001. Best trade I've ever made.


    My second car: 2000 Lincoln LS

    9908_MTRP_01_I_LINC-C.jpg


    My current car: 2014 Ford Fusion

    25187256333.jpg

    I've always been thankful I'm not a car guy. I like a nice ride to get from A to B but as far as collecting cars or fixing them up, no not for me. I'll stick with guitars! They take up less space and cost a bit less.

    I’m guessing you have put your $100 down to order a new Ford Bronco.

    Every red car I've ever owned blew its engine:

    '74 Fiat X 1/9 - timing belt tensioner failed, tossing the timing belt - bent seven out of eight valves
    '86 Honda Civic CRX Si - blew head gasket
    '91 Honda Civic CRX Si - threw a rod
    '10 VW GTI - a camshaft bearing failed, sh*tting shards of metal all over the inside of the engine at about 8100 miles. Engine and turbo replaced under warranty, car was flawless after that little bit of teething pain.

    So no more red cars.
