After that, I had a couple of Chevelles.




Now I'm working on a '70 Chevy Short bed.

Hello folks,

Here's my list:

1978 Buick Skylark with 3.8.

1983 Ford LTD (not the Crown Vic) with 3.8

1980 Toyota Corolla (nick named, The Death Trap by my boss at the time) with 1.8, Dual Mikuni carbs, cam (don't know the degrees), gears, flowmaster, 5 spd short shifter, '85 GTS Twin cam rear end, 4 wheel disc.

1980 Toyota Corolla with 1.8 (stock), 4 speed.

1979 Toyota Corolla with 1.6. This car is unforgettable in my family. I lost control while driving a bit fast & drove under an 18 wheeler. Yes, like in the movies. NOT having a seat belt on saved my life because I was able to duck. Even still I got cut by the roof pillar as it tore off & I had to get 8 stitches on my head. The paramedic took pics (he was shocked that I was still walking) but my moms house was destroyed by Hurricane Andrew a month later & they were lost. Just picture a '79 Corolla hatchback minus everything from the doors up.

1981 Pontiac Grand Prix with a 350 Diesel. Yes, GM dabbled in that for a while in the early 80's. The owner died in it so his wife sold it to me for $400 just to get rid of it. My friends '69 Olds Cutlass was crushed by Andrew from the doors back so he sold me his recently redone engine for $600. 350CI/350 tranny out of a '69 Olds Cutlass was now powering my GP. I also had Corvette Rally Wheels installed. That car was a beast. Still remember the tire sizes R:265/50r15 / F:195/65r15









Met my wife & when we decided to get married we needed money. I sold my GP & bought a 1983 Crown Vic. After about 4 years I removed the EFI & had a Holley 4 barrel installed & MSD (or Mallory) ignition system. It was strong & reliable.

Then, I bought a 1989 Mercury Colony Park Station Wagon. I LOVED it My wife HATED it. She hated ALL of my old cars. She always wanted me to buy a new car for myself. She's good like that! I drove to New York & to the Smokey Mountains more than once & the engine finally lost all compression on 2 cylinders. Still drove it for 3 weeks (try that with a new car!) & gave it to a friend of mine.


2007 Saturn Vue (bought in October '06) with the 3.5 Honda V6 & 5 Speed Auto Tranny. Crashed it on May 2011. Reached down to get my coffee while on a curve off of I-95 & there was a parked, yes parked car there. I couldn't react in time.






Drove my grandmothers 1991 Toyota Corolla for 7 months since she was not using it. She bought it New in 1991. It has 51,000 original miles. Now my mother drives it.





I bought my current vehicle (2008 DCSB Prerunner 4.0 auto) on January 2 2012: The day I bought her:





CURRENT SET-UP:

Ooooh, you got my attention with the '56 Bel Air! I love most any of the '55/6/7 Chevy ... actually 58/9 and 60/1/2s also. Then anything from the '64 GTO up thru '70 Chevelle/GTO/Mustang/Challenger/Cuda/Road Runner - any muscle car.

Was it a fun car to own? I'd trade my STi for an old muscle car if I had the space in a heartbeat. It's fun being able to turn fast, but the swagger of an old car cannot be beat.

My list isn't as cool as some others in this thread, but its pretty long for a 25 year old....

1991 Toyota Corolla (2004 - 2005)
  • This was the most reliable/dependable car ever. Had 200k on the odometer with nothing more than oil changes and routine maintenance. Made it through a hurricane and after being flooded in 4 ft of water it lost reverse...then fixed itself, I shit you not...
1999 Toyota Camry LE (2005 - 2008)
  • Great car, but being in college and stupid I drove through a puddle that killed it...
2005 Toyota Camry LE (2008 - 2011)
  • Great car that got me through college and all over the country. I retired that thing with 120K and it would have lasted another 100K...
2011 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road (2011 - 2012)
  • Loved the truck and never should have traded it...
2012 Toyota Camry SE V6 (had for like 2 months)
  • Only had this one for 2 months...All I can say is that I am no longer a car type of person...I loved the car and got it on a whim, but I just couldn't live without a truck...
2013 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport (2012 - Present)
  • Got this to replace the 2012 Camry and "get my Tacoma back". From here on out, truck for me...
2013 Dodge Dart Rallye 2.0 (2013 - Present)
  • Gas saver/future wife's car
  • Was torn between this and the Corolla. I wanted the dependability and resale value of the Corolla, but knowing the owner of a dodge dealership allowed me to get this car for cost. Dealer also threw in maintenance for 65k and 6yr/76k bumper to bumper warranty that extended the power train warranty to 6yr/100k. Honestly, it cant be beat. All this fully loaded for less than the base, base corolla would have cost me.

Just curious.
Actually, IMHO, the Honda Ridgeline is one of the BEST small trucks on the market for daily driving on pavement. They are not good at all for off-roading (why we now have a Tacoma). Acceptable on dirt/gravel roads. Totally amazing on packed snow & ice--the AWD system is spectacular when things get slippery. Smooth ride, great handling with independent suspension at all four wheels. 4-wheel disc brakes that work great. Lots of interior space and storage cubbies. The trunk in the bed is the thing I miss the most.

As far as negatives: The road/wind noise at highway speeds is totally unacceptable--drove me crazy! Honda installs almost zero sound-deadening material at the factory & Dynamat isn't much help. The gas mileage sucks. On a 3000 mile freeway trip, we averaged no better than 17.5 mpg, about the same as around town. Lastly, the engine won't impress you with excess power, as there isn't any. Power is OK under most conditions, but sorely missed when you really need it, like for passing on a 2-lane.
