Nice thread idea!

I started driving when I was 16 and I am 36. I estimate having driven more than 320,000 miles.

The cars I have owned myself are:

 

1995 Dodge Colt GL

2003 Ford Focus ZX5

2004 Chevrolet Cavalier Z-type (wife)

2006 Ford Fusion SEL V6

2007 Mazda5 (wife)

2008 Ford Taurus X Limited (wife)

2009 Ford Fusion SEL V6 (modded)

2009 Ford Flex Limited (wife)

2010 Ford Taurus SHO (more modded!)

 

Worth to mention that my dad owned 2 Cadillac STS (1994 and 1997)... I was driving them almost each weekends, which made it easier to keep the Dodge Colt as a student...

Well due to my age, here you go & I don't count my wife's cars her decision:

1959 chev impala 4dr ht 348

1967 chevelle ss 396 325hp

1968 ply roadrunner 383 330hp

1971 ply duster 340 275hp- fastest of the 3 muscles

1974 mustang II- to think I traded in my 340 Duster on this makes me want to cry every time I think of it

1977 chry lebaron-what a piece of junk

1981 mazda 626-broke my mopar dad's heart

1986 toy cressida-really a nice car

1989 mazda 626 2.0 turboed- a wreck looking to happen w/ torque stear but I handled it

1993 pont gram am gt- great set of pipes sounded best of all, 4pipes out the back

1997 chry Cirrus-had a job had to take customers around

2002 dodge status r/t 3.0 litter tries it hardest to go fast, great gears, still running w/only 68k my backup for my spoiled SHO

2010 SHO-it took me 6 months of looking at it & my Ford-loving brother-in-law's constant pressure to buy it instead of a

Dodge Challenger R/T & Chrysler taking our money then closing the plant in STL & shipping production to Mexico.

Now when I see my brother-in-law I just smile & thank him & take his shit about see I told you that Ford got it

right on this one.

07 Chevy Impala SS (new) - 1st Lease, 5.3L V8 powering the front wheels, can you say torque steer?

 

 

OMG, I know. I had an 09 SS. I know how to drive, but no way I could effectively plant a take off. That thing would lose traction when floored from a rolling 25 MPH with new tires on it. Car was mildly fun, and sounded nice, but horrendous traction and torque steer.

 

Well, here is my list:

 

73 Grandville 455

82 Skylark

87 Chevy Sprint

88 Chevy Nova

90 300 ZX Twin Turbo

92 Cherokee

93 Cutlass Supreme 2 door

94 Lexus ES300

94 LHS

99LHS

99 Tahoe LS

01 Tahoe LT

01 Seville SLS (still have)

06 SRX V8 AWD

07 Escalade

09 Impala SS

10 MKS Eco (still have - obviously)
