Astra coupe 1.8 Bertone edition which is my current car, being 20 and from the UK insurance is killing me....

Currently looking for a new set of alloys and undecided on whether to stick to silver or go black on them.

Well, we have a 2013 Mustang now, the better model but I still miss my hemi 2010 Challenger. It was a beauty....white with black hash marks/stripes and the words Hemi spelled down the center of the hood. I always prefer somethin MOPAR. Hubby decided on the Mustang after grandson wrecked the hemi twice driving it down for us from Wyoming to Louisiana...it was never the same after that. The Mustang seems like it has a hemi type engine tho...has 32 valve/heads...is fast. I had hubby put a black cobra decal on the hood and black hash marks and cobra chrome emblems on all 4 sides and it looks better...is shiny, gray metallic....wish it was candy apple red. Fast and nice but still miss the hemi.

Almost to many to list here without getting punted for spam.

Some of the notables (Good and Bad)

1965 Pontiac Parisienne Custom Sport - 327
1969 Pontiac Beaumont Coupe - 355
1968 Buick Skylark Coupe - 350
1977 Camaro Z/28 - 383 stroker

Got tired of hot rods

1988 BMW 535i - This was a great handling car. very very connected to the road. Good feel.
1992 BMW 325i - JDM import - Underpowered and sucked fuel like it was going out of style.
1994 Nissan Skyline - JDM import - sweet all around sweet and nasty, powertrain noise was to die for.

1986 Ford F-250 Lariat - My first diesel pickup, put a first gen Banks system on it. Good truck.

2003 Mercedes Benz c230 Compressor Coupe - Home of the $250 oil change.

2004 Dodge SRT-4 - I put 20k into the car, it would spin the wheels at 100 MPH.

2009 Ford Focus SES Coupe. - Junk, was in shop more than on road.

2011 F-350 6.7 Diesel - Pulls my 32 foot 5r like its not there, passes sports cars in the BC mountains.

2012 Nissan SE-R - Best small car I have ever owned, the best drive logic of anything Ive ever driven.

Young boys if you are reading this now, please be advised. Cars are like girls, sooner or later they will cause you nothing but trouble.

Ha HA, I doubt god is on the forum, so your record is probably safe.

Wow, that's a lot of cars to have own. I would say you are a car snob. I don't mean that in a bad way at all. You just are. I'm on my 10th car. Jeep Grand Cherokee 4 x 4 2013. Love it. Yes, I'm a car snob. But will not be so snobbish to own a foreign snob car like a Range Rover.

I am a car dummy.

I have wasted so much $ on cars and car related junk in my time, I am almost embarrassed about it now.

My Dad would just shake his head when I drove up his entrance way. My Mom was scared of the sounds the cars made and would never ride with me. My girlfriends probably made out the best in this whole deal, as they got to drive them, and wreck them lol.

Young lads, save yourself the grief, get a bus pass.

Sage advice. I feel the same way you do. I've thrown away more money than I can count. At my age, I should have probably not purchased more than 4 or 5 cars. I guess buying a new car is stupid too. But I do like to know that I have a solid reliable vehicle.
