1.) 1984 Pontiac Fiero. $800. Got it out of a field and gave it a tune up. Good first car.
2.) 87 Toyota single cab 2wd. Drove the heck out of it and that 22r/4 speed came back for more over and over.
3.) 86 VW GTI. Corrado supercharged motor swap. Drove it into the ground. Tranny couldn't handle the motor. Sold it for 500 less than what I paid with a busted trans.
4.) 97 Mustang. Should've waited and got the GT. Treated it like a damn queen and the V6 that is notorious for blowing head gaskets did at 106K. I was mad.
5.) 87 Toyota 4x4 extended cab. Back to basics. What was reliable in the past will be in the future. I took care of this truck and didn't wheel it hard at all. It runs great to this day.
6.) 88 Jeep Cherokee. Lifted it, bigger tires, ran great through a ND winter. Just wanted something newer for once in my life.
7.) 2005 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport. What was reliable in the past will be in the future. Toyota earned my respect with my first truck, made me fall in love with my second and has me head over heels for this one.

Did someone say motorcycles? I'll just name off the street bikes.

1.) 2003 SV650S. Stripped down cafe racer style. Lots of mods. Loved it dearly. Great first street bike. Never wrecked it. Sold it because I wanted an excess of power.
2.) 2005 Z1000. An excess of power. Lots of mods. In showroom condition I purchased for half the blue book value. The countless stories on this bike start from the day I bought it. Been to hell and back with her. I rode this bike across the country (west to east) and back in 28 days straight. It was over 9,000 miles total. On day 8 of 28 it was stolen along with all my possessions. I was lucky enough to get it back with the help of Daniel Cordova of the NM state police. I pressed on and had the time of my life with bare minimums. You can read the whole story, with pictures, here - http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=675917

Here she is with my helmet that bares the mark of a small dragon that sparked this adventure.

I have had a few cars over the years, the ones that come to mind are 68 Cougar xr7 my first car. A 1980 AMC Spirit was one of my favorites even though it had no air. After that about five Chevy work trucks, then got smart and bought 2009 trd sport. My current vehicle is 2012 trd off road 4x4 short bed crew.

96 Honda Accord coupe - Stolen from driveway
2002 Ford Sport Trac Pioneer Edition - Had the truck for a month and some guy offered to buy it off of me for 2 grand more than I had paid for it. Good thing too, I hated driving that truck.
2004 Toyota Tacoma extended cab 4 cyl 2 wheel drive - this truck had some issues and I only kept it for about 6 months. It kept turning off out of nowhere while I was driving it. It put me in some very dangerous situations.
2006 Honda Civic Si - loved driving this car!
2013 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 TRD OR - Current Vehicle

Traded in the first one (hatchback) because I'd found out a week after I put down the deposit on my order that my wife was pregnant with our first kid. Traded it in on a Clubman (the one that's a little longer with the extra half door on the passenger side) as car seats fit better and it's easier to get the kid in and out. Took delivery of the Clubman two days before daughter was born.

Traded in the Clubman for a couple of reasons...

First, I missed having a truck to haul stuff (I'd gotten rid of the Ranger when I got the first MINI) - you get used to being able to make large purchases, haul stuff to the dump, etc. and having to rent or borrow when you want to do so sucks. With a roof rack I was able to haul small amounts of dimensional lumber on the Clubman, but things like plywood, kiddie swimming pools and other oddly shaped items, furniture, TVs and so on are out of the question.

Second, they're coming out with the next generation MINIs in March, so it was a good time to trade it in before resale value took that hit. I don't like what I've seen so far of the next gen ones, and should be able to pick up another hatchback from the current generation (now) cheaper down the road if I choose to do so.

Both were great cars, loads of fun and pretty much problem free (had the thermostat on the Clubman replaced under warranty).

Plus I'm hoping to have the Miata back together soon (it's in pieces in the garage for paint and a new interior), so I've still got the "fun car / go-kart" segment covered.
