Damn, never figured I owned that many vehicles, till I made the list. I have owned more than that, I just can't remember the years/ stats.

I really want to shoot myself for letting some of them go. :bash: :bnghd:

My Dad had that exact car! White. I drove it many times. Those things just never die! I remember the pushbutton transmission. Unique and classic. Thanks for the memory.

First Car: 1969 VW Bug, yellow with sunroof and seats that were not attached well to the floor due to the rust on the bottom of car
I burnt out the engine because the electrical didnt work well and the "need oil" light never came on. Being 17 and naive - I never thought to even check the oil
Burnt out engine and killed car on way to my first day of work at The Gap

Second car: Honda Accord (got used). Drove it until I got....

Third: Honda Civic (got new as a gift) Drove it until I traded it in for

Fourth: (new ) Jeep Wrangler Softtop

.....and at same time after Wrangler paid off.....

Fifth: VW GTI

My next vehicle....Hmmmmm....
I love the Toyota FJ (although im not a fan of Toyota) and Porche Carerra GT or BMW Z4....but I think the FJ is probably more in my budget

Maybe a Truck will be the next one...Im a shorty and like to ride high

My first car which I got when I was 13 or 14 I believe was a

1968 Ford Galaxy 500 2 door Fastback (my all time favorite galaxy model a great looking car) 390 3 speed C6 trans 3.90 gears.
Edelbrock 420hp power pack. The most comfortable cruiser I've been in, had such a nice riding suspension, too much body roll for real handling but soaked up bad California roads like none other. The car was in my family since it had been special ordered. This car was surprisingly quick, it even took down a few SS 396 Chevelles which surprised the hell out of them and earned me a spot in a more than a few cruises and club shows. Sadly my dad used it to commute on Vasco road between Brentwood and Livermore and ended up being rear ended by a guy who was more concerned with reading the newspaper than paying attention. It was totaled but we got it from the insurance company, I had plans to do a resto-mod tub it with mickey's and build up a 428CJ for it but my dad ended up getting rid of it for me since the Neighborhood association was bi$%%ing about it being parked in our driveway. I hated to see her go and did one last big smoky burnout in her before I watched her ride off into the sunset.

When I got my license my parents gave me there old 99 Nissan Quest van, that thing was a great vehicle the only problem it ever had was going through motor mounts which was from my driving habits anyway. The 3.3 was a great motor and made the van pretty quick considering. Me being who I am I cut the muffler and resonator (the thing sounded great after that) and made a custom cold air intake, and put on some Enkei 5 spokes, I also installed a pretty crazy sound system in it. The golden bullet did me great for many years until I let my brother use it for driving to school, he being the horrible driver he is hit a tree in it too (after totaling my GN)

Me being crazy as usual.

Using the money I was going to use on the Galaxy resto-mod I bought a-

1984 Buick Regal Grand National that had a fresh low mile 87 motor and drive-train swap (so it was no longer a "hot air" car. After some help from my buddies at Kenne Bell I got that car to run like a bat out of hell and installed a 10 point cage in it to show you how extreme I was planning on going with it. Best time for the car was a flat 11 on street tires and pump gas. I swear I went through more back tires on this car than most people would in a lifetime the ratio was something like 10:1 to the front tires, I had lots of friends at tire shops that would save me the proper size 15s for me that had decent tread left so I could afford my burnout habit. After trailering the car out to Arkansas my brother "borrowed it" without asking while I was asleep and totaled it, which ruined the car for me and I lost interest and let him have it.

On my 17th birthday I bought myself a 1977 Chevy K10 "heavy " 1/2ton (with 3/4ton suspension) 4wd stepside with a 6" suspension lift on 37"x12.5 Super Swamper Irok radials. Low miles built 350 balanced, blueprinted, ported and polished heads, Edelbrock aluminum intake, Holly truck Avenger 650 (hated it, never had so many problems with a carb, replaced it with a Edelbrock Thunder AVS 650 and never looked back), Isky torque cam, Full Accel ignition, Hooker long tubes, Flow Master Super 40s turned down and out at the end of the cab. It had the bombproof Muncie SM 465 "granny 1st gear" with Centerforce clutch, don't remember what transfer case it had but it was bombproof too, 4.10 gearing, lockers front and rear. 4 point Roll cage, and Double/Double tube Roll bar/light tube with 4 front facing and 2 rear facing KC's. This truck was made to do one thing and do it very good I never did anything cosmetically because I knew I was going to be at the very least drag the body along rough brush. This truck went to Carneghie MotorSports Park, many a time, I used to save every receipt from entrance and stick them to the headliner (or lack there of) and had to make new room many times. Also pulled out many friends.

"Mighty Whitey" doing what she does best.

I had a lifted 87 (I think can't really remember for sure though) fullsize Bronco with a 302 but it was a turd so I sold it for a little bit of profit after getting it running a little better.

My current obsession is my 99 Mustang Cobra with the 4.6l DOHC 32valve all aluminum motor. It has 145,000 miles but still runs great, I'm sure I will rebuild it pretty soon here.
Here's the mods listed for the Modifications to your car thread.

JLT Ram Air Induction, it's pretty nice I just pop out the passenger side headlight assembly, simple as pulling the retainer bars and disconnecting the headlight connector (all tool-less) and it gets a straight shot ram air effect for the track.

Steeda underdrive pulleys with SFI approved dampened harmonic balancer.


Custom Diablo Sport tune.

BBK short tube headers (ordering a set of long tubes and selling my friend the short tubes for his 4v motor swap).

Full exhaust with flow master 40 series, no cats.

Maximum Motorsports Aluminum clutch quadrant, firewall adjuster, with stock cable (stock cable is one of the most durable and reliable cables you can go with.

MGW short throw shifter, I love that shifter it's a night and day difference between the stock slosh stick and this shifter, it practically jumps into third and has the perfect throw and a very nice positive engagement.

TR3650 trans swap.

I have a full Derlin IRS bushing kit that I'm waiting until spring to install as it is a pretty big job but they make a massive difference in the handling of the car and get rid of the annoying "Cobra Clunk" from the Ford NVH team going over SVT's head and replacing the bushings with much softer ones to help with noise vibration and harshness. The Derlin bushings are well work a little extra noise though.

Also have H&R race springs ready to be installed when spring roles around too, will be ordering Caster/Camber plates soon too.

SPEC Stage 2 Clutch Kevlar friction material Street/Strip rated at 530ft/lbs of torque and still very mild on the street.

Soon to be ordering Steeda bump-steer kits front and back.

I also have a Maximum Motorsports full length subframe connector set.

Steeda button head IRS subframe bolt kit to allow the use of 315/35R-17 meats in the rear, can't wait to throw a set of these on the back and help remedy my severe traction problem.

Saving up the money for a Kenne Bell Big Bore 2.1L supercharger.

My work truck is a 07 Ford F350 King Ranch Edition 4wd 6.0 Turbo Diesel, that I am in love with. I have a straight through 4" exhaust and a custom DJ's Diesel Performance "loony tune" and a cold air intake, it it amazing how much power this truck has and it looks great doing it.

first car
1980 toyota celica supra aka mk1 supra manual. 50k orig miles.
before supra was its own thing. it was basicailly a celica with a longer and wider wheelbase a bigger motor and "luxurious" interior. i saved up all through 11th grade and bought it in the summer before my senior year.
i loved that car but it was not good for a beginner driver. it was lightweight had more than enough power was a manual and had a locker lsd rear end with 4.10 gears. luckily the motor blew up before i had the opportunity to wrap it around a telephone pole.

2nd car
1996 volkswagen gti. porcelean blue manual 2.0. it was beautiful. i was young and dumb and didnt take care of it. i think i ended up selling it for 500 bucks with a blown transmission and blown main oil seal. i regret it to this day

3rd car
1993 honda del sol 5 speed d16 vtec. fun car but too small and made no torque. also a cop magnet if your a teenager. lost my license and sold the car and never looked back.

4th car
1995 volkswagen vr6 gti drivers edition manual. lightweight handled great and was plenty fast with the vr6. made the power of a v8 but got the gas mileage like a 4 cylinder and it made tons of torque. most reliable car i owned. i put over 100k miles on it and traded it to my friend for my next car.

5th car
1991 bmw 325is e30. southern car in pristine condition. it was a really fun car. decently reliable and in good shape but i was afraid to drive it in the winter so i traded it straight up for my next car after driving it for 8 months.
the inline 6 made plenty of power for the light car and it also had a 4.10 lsd rear end thats why it wasn't a good idea for winter. it was also an automatic witch made it dull at times.

6th car
1995 volkswagen vr6 gti manual. not as reliable as the 1st one but was good. got bored with it quick after already owning one and decided to get something newer and more commuter friendly.

7th car
2001 hyundai accent 5 speed base. awesome commuter car. hybrid-esque gas mileage and parts were dirt cheap. front brake pads were 9 dollars. but the car was dangerously underpowerd and just plain boring so i sold it.

8th car (current)
2000 saab 9-5 aero 2.3 turbo
favorite car so far. first turbo car also my first sedan. 235hp 255tq makes plenty of power. 40-70 in 2nd gear is faster than a porsce 911 turbo. i love the nice features. heated and air cooled seats are my favorite features. plenty of trunk room great gas mileage and so far its been really reliable. i enjoy all of the extra room and comfyness since its a sedan i dont think i can ever daily drive another small car.

I want to make it diesel with a little merc engine and straight axle it since I have to keep it might as well make it nice. Needs prerunner fenders and 33x10's too. All in do time. Any one know where I can get a sun visor for it?
