1997 Chevy Cav 2-door coupe (loved that car) It was my first stick shift!
2001 Dodge Stratus
1999 Dodge Neon
1998 Mustang (Ellie) I love my car. It's not new but it's my Mustang. I always wanted one. I want to get her painted and done up over time. I will never get rid of it lol I will keep her since she is my first one. It is also a stick shift which was a must when I went looking.

Still on my first
2000 Lancer CE Coupe...talk about gutless wonder hehe. I'm waiting for the FT86 (Scion FRS for the US market) to be released. If it turns out to be a letdown then next car is going to be a WRX, or Nissan Cube if the wife gets her way.

My first car ever was a Mazda 323 little hatchback, Then after the clutch was worn out, i proceeded to get a 96 Saturn SL1 Had that car for 4 yrs. After that poor poor cars front end fell apart and i mean fell apart, i got a 02 Saturn SC1, which i presently own. I then got a 96 Nissan Pickup, only 2 wheel drive, though i should have gotten the 4, but all about the learning. And now I am a very proud owner of a 87 Chevrolet Camaro Iroc-Z... GIGGIDY Ohh and by the way if anyone has an alternator for a 91 Caprice i would love it.
I presently own the Saturn SC1, the 96 Nissan Pickup, and the 87 Camaro

'70 Cutlass "S": 350 CI with 400 heads, 4 speed and it was balls to the wall fast!
'74 Pinto Station Wagon: I call it my winter car (That's how long it lasted...lol)
'77 Monte Carlo: A nice cruiser, but I wrapped it around a tree and somehow survived unscathed.
'79 Capri with a 5.0: I loved that lil speed demon, but it caught fire.
'87 Firebird 350 w/T-Top: Another car that I loved, but I got pulled over a lot.

At this point, I moved to trucks and 4X4's

'86 Chevy Shortbed: with a three on the tree....what a nuisance!
'84 Jeep CJ-7: Loved that Jeep, but it was to costly to ship to Germany with insurance and all.
'86 Chevy S-10 Blazer 4X4: I liked it, but its 2.8 just wasn't gutsy enough to deal with Seattle traffic.
'90 Dodge Dakota: Nice truck, but it was a sled in the winter. Definitely had to watch your speed.
'94 Ford Ranger: 2 wheel drive, reliable and it got me around.
'00 Ford Ranger: 4X4! I absolutely loved this truck and just got rid of it last week. There was a tear in my eye, but I needed the money to fix....
'99 Jeep Cherokee 4X4; Rust free and still a work in progress, but this vehicle has always pulled me through tough situations, much like the Ranger, but cheaper repair wise.

I'm clearly not the rich man the OP is
you can tell by my little list

1985 Pontiac 6000LE with a dented fender and a horrible oil leak ( first car ) .. but had a sun roof!
1986 Chevy Celebrity
1992 Cutlass Cierra
2001 Ford Mustang ( current car, and first car I bought brand new )

My brother bought the 6000LE for $50 and sold it to me for $500 .. what a loving brother
.. the celebrity was a good car but had a fuel leak and I eventually sold it and got the Cierra which was in great condition aside from some clear coat abrasions which let me get an excellent price on it.. by 2001 I was 24 and had a good paying job so I got my first ( and so far last ) new car .. it's been a great vehicle.. and it's famous now, it was shown a few weeks back on Fox's "Indestructibles" tv special ..
.. I was interviewed for one of those episodes and they had footage of me driving along the highway for it.

Anyway .. not sure what my next car will be, but I'm on the hunt.

So far my first car is a 2010 scion xb. my car's name is SexB...I added the letters S and E in front of the "xB" logo. I got 16" black and silver wheels. i would went higher but i wouldn't have been able to afford new tires so i just stayed with the default 16 inch rims. I got two 12 inch Kicker subs in the trunk, a laser/radar detector which works like a charm, and yeah....Still a work in progress. I call this car my Hotbox too sometimes. Oh and also I got 2 blue LED lights that are installed over two back wheels with a switch installed in my car. you know i like to flex on em lolol

I can't stand the Nissan Cube. Dude go for the Scion xB Release series that's coming out soon. That xB's gotta phat sunroof and preinstalled body kit. the car comes with an alpine sound system i'm pretty sure cuz my normal xB did. Now I got subs too

iSwag my wife bought the first year xB, still has it. she loves that car. from the first week she owned it she surpassed manufacturer claims for MPG. for what appears to be a tiny vehicle it is quite surprising how much you can load in those vehicles.

early on Scion offered a limited edition xB called the California Special. it was an awesome bright Orange with black leather interior and Two moon roofs! awesome vehicle, i still want one. my wife wouldn't go for it because she's an animal lover and the leather seats were teh no-no.

the Scion is remarkable. it's the little things, like pressing on the windshield washer spray button and the fluid actually hits the windshield and not the car behind you. plenty of leg and head room too. amazing engineering in those little vehicles.

1. 1979 VW Rabbit Deisel
2. 1972 VW Beetle
3. 1978 Ford LTD
4. 1982 AMC Eagle
5. 1974 VW Transporter
6. 1970 Cadillac Fleetwood Limo.........my favorite ride ever 472 is the best motor gm ever made.
7. 1992 Dodge Shadow
8. 1994 Nissan Hard Body Pickup
9. 1973 Dodge Swinger
10. 1992 Lincoln Towncar
11. 2004 Honda Civic Hybrid
12. 1971 Ford Torino

fun idea for a thread. think this is the first time I've actually compiled my list of rides.
I would give every vehicle I ever owned to have my evil caddy back. 5700 pounds and 23 feet of absolute darkness. But it was taken out of this world by a preacher in a chevy s-10 pickup on July 2, 2000. He ran a stopsign, I was only doing 40 mph and spun his truck 4 times, I saw him run it, and did everything not to t-bone him. It would have killed him and his wife both. I still hate them for taking that car from me.

My little Rino doesn't have the power of my 472 caddy, but I still love her.
