03' Ford Mustang (Because it was only $9,000) ---> 02' Mitsubishi Galant (Because I wrecked the Mustang) ---> 07' Pontiac GT (Because I hated the Galant) ---> 12' Mercedes C250 Coupe (Because I hate American cars now) ----> 08' BMW 328i Coupe (Because the Merc had A/C problems and I made MBUSA take their car back) ---> 13' Audi A5 Quattro (Because I got a banging new gig and gave my GF the bimmer)

My first car was a 1995 Green Mazda Protege. It was crap and I spent more money on trying to keep it alive than I actually spent on buying it.
I now drive a 2003 Nissan Maxima. It's a fun car to drive. Not the best gas mileage though, so I'm looking into getting something else later on.

My first car was a 99/98 dodge intrepid. It was my mom's until she totaled it and my dad repaired it (by repaired i mean I had a golf club to prop the hood or beat it with, jumper cables, and gallon of water at all times). It was a clunker . . However I was pretty darn popular because I was one of the few teenagers with a car, it was comfy and seated a lot friends. We called it the Land Barrage.

Then when I graduated high school in 2005 got 05' Dodge Ram 1500 single cab. I kept this until 2011 I had to get rid of it because I would be driving down the road at low speeds or yielding it would just shut off and of course took it to the stealer-ship and they said nothings wrong with it, we replaced the fuel pump and didn't help so I sold it.

I Now Drive
07' VW GTI (2011)
12' Yamaha R1 (2012)

My first car was a 1992 Toyota Corolla 1.3. Two years later it had so much rust that it was not approved anymore. So I ended up with a 1996 Ford Mondeo 2.5 V6. The car is much faster than the Toyota, but it is not completely healthy so it spits out the hoses in the engine compartment. I'm able to run it anyway, but it is terrible to reverse because the engine dies after a few seconds. YAY!

My first car was a 1997 Pontiac Sunfire, it only had 120 000KM and was over 10 years old (only one owner). The car got totalled because of a hit and run incident caused by an idiot driving illegally.
Still haven't recovered from the loss a few years back.

My current car is a Chevrolet Sonic 2013, manual transmission... Oh yeah baby!

Pic I found online, but that's what my baby looked like:

I don't have a pic of my first car, but it was a 1962 Vw Ragtop.
Then I had a 1990 Ford Bronco II
then its transmission blew up and I didn't have a car and was just using my dad's truck

Then I moved back to AZ and got this


1978 Datsun 280z (in the middle of wetsanding the paint because of all the oxidation)
Had to give it up because I needed a car with more than 2 seats.

Traded it to my GF's uncle for his 90 something buick regal. It blew up its engine, so I junked it and...

Now I have this



1990 Acura Integra (DB1)

So far in the past 1 1/2 years I have...
Blown up the engine
Burned out the clutch (that was trash when I bought the car)
Replaced the blown up engine for a good one.
Blew up the transmission that was in the car when I bought it
Blew up the transmission that I replaced
Replaced said blown up transmission (transmission #3 now)
Swapped the head for a built head I bought because mine had bad valve seals
Blew up the engine that I bought that was rebuilt (with 25k on it at time of engine failure) Engine blew because it over reved and spun its bearings

Now its sitting, with a dead engine under the hood, and a good engine where the passanger seat should be. I'm currently taking it apart, and replacing the piston and rods with forged pieces, installing a GSR engine girdle, and arp main studs.

Should be in the car by next month.

sorta copy paste from another post:

October 2010 -December 2012
-my first car was a 2003 automatic Chevy Impala with no cruise control [boo for no cruise on a auto & fuck the gas mileage on that car, but i loved it anyways ] .I paid cash for it, from a place that repos peoples cars if they can't pay back a loan etc..it had high mileage for the year and it was slowly declining in it's car "health" so i started looking for another car more sporty and better gas mileage and ended up with my #2 and sold it off a bit later.
i felt like a gangster in it,, dark tinting and nobody really ever cut me off...not even cops lol ]

July 2012-may 2013???My second was/is a 1993 Manual 5 speed Honda Del sol almost perfect stock except for the wheels & audio stuff. Fantastic little car very easy to drive even though there's no power steering,turns in to a convertible.[ lots of people cut me off ..i started to develop some sort of road rage ] Maintenance on this car is really easy, I bought it cash from a honda mechanic who bought it from a little old lady who kept up with the maintenance since it came off the dealership lot in 1993. so you get the picture that is been well kept and I kept it that way. [i actually wanted a fairlady Z but this was the one for me :} ]
here's a pic of them both before i sold the impala:


AND SO PISSED right now since on 5/29/13 [about two days ago] A fucking asshole driver hit me swerving fast through other cars and now it's totaled since my car took down a light pole went over the median and into opposing traffic and up another curb with the pole still on top and tapped a brick wall and AND THE OTHER DRIVER DID NOT STOP to stick around either, but at least I'm okay. pedestrians and other witnesses stopped and helped me till the police/paramedics came and gave their statements.
but I would totally still buy another honda del sol. saved my life, my poor car took pretty much the whole beating.now i'm going to go cry in a corner[sob....it was perfect :{ .]
so now it looks like this [after they removed the pole off the car :

I don't necessarily own a car, but there are ones owned by my parents that I use frequently.

My favourite (and the one I use the most) is a 1998 Honda Civic LX. It has a 5-speed manual, and was the vehicle I learned to drive stick-shift on. It is also the vehicle my parking pass for school sits on, as when we had 3 cars, I drove that one daily.



Standard insurance costs me $75 a month.

The other car I'm insured under is my mom's 2011 Dodge Durango. This was just as the re-design went through, and is a nice truck to drive. It has a Pentastar V6 (hemi would've set my mom back sooooooo much in gas), and has the usual assortment of leather, keyless start/entry, etc. I occasionally get to drive it to school when mom is off work.

Insured, but mom won't tell me how much insurance is a month...classified as on the border between a full-size SUV and a Luxury SUV, I can guess it's not pretty.

For when I actually purchase my own car, I want to get a AWD/FWD hatchback or wagon. It would be interesting to own a VW, aka the German Rubix Cube, or a Subaru Legacy/Impreza.
