    1986 Toyota Camry (1993-1997): Parents got worried about me driving an old car back and forth to college and traded it to me straight up for...
    1995 Geo Prizm (1997-2005): Head gasket blew while vacationing in Georgia for Thanksgiving last year, needed new engine, had myriad other problems (A/C, brakes, suspension, broken windshield), too expensive to fix, sold for $100 for scrap metal to some guy down there
    1989 Chrysler LeBaron (2001-2002): wife's car when we got married. Totaled in wreck. Sold for parts to a pull-a-part yard.
    1986 Toyota Camry (2005-now): The same as my first car. Still running strong at 232,000+ miles. Bought again off my parents for a dollar since it was just sitting in their garage.

    1987 Ford Fiesta 21st Birthday Present - I couldn't drive back then & was too interested in drinking to learn- sold it to my cousin who won several stock car races with it.
    1996 Nissan MicraMy wife got bored with it so we used it as a trade in for...
    2001 Renault ClioI loved that car, its really easy to drive. We'd still have it too, if we didnt have loads of kids and have to get a new one, which is
    2001 Kia Carens AutomaticI hate this car (if you could call it that - its a bloody big gold bus). Its a pig to drive, nothing ever works properly on it, you can't see anything behind you and the parking sensor thinks you are going to hit things a half a mile away!! I only have it cause it has seven seats. I want my Clio back!!:cry

    1985 Diahatsu Charade (2003 - now) - When my brother got married they only had room at their apartment for one car, so his wife passed her car on to me as I was just about to start driving. I've still got it now. Over 350 000 Kms done (although I do believe it's on it's 2nd engine). Pretty reliable, but I have done a fair bit of work on it over the last few years (like brakes, radiator, etc). I'm just afraid that one day it'll die suddenly.

    92 Dodge phantom 2.0 litters turbo mottor-posibly the fastest Car I have ever owned totaled in a crash and didnt work well after it was fixed, sold to a mechanic he fix it and sold it-(96-2000(It was gonna be my hand me down-:(  )

    LTD :dunno what was of it just scrapped it after the phantom sold to the same mechanic, didnt like the thing It smeelled bad(96-2000)

    Sunfire 99 while I wish to get rid of the rev limiter and quite a few of the bad features of this car I cant complain as its beeen the car I learned to drive in standar-and the one Im doing my G2 license anyhow-2000 to current

    looking into

    Toyota Celica: well I recently found out the 86-92 have similar engines to the ones the phantom I loved had, as well as having the initialDish feeel-celica 86-89 looks like an 8/6 trueno-I just need to get a few grands more-either model from 86 to I think 96 are from 2500 to 6000 this days.

    1993 Topaz: It had the V6 and was standard, so it wasn't too bad. Sold it to a friend and the rad blew a month later.

    1988 Mustang GT: My dad and I completly rebuilt the engine. Added some stuff for power etc... i had the car for almost 10 years, never drove it in the winter and didn't have a spot of rust. I sold it last month to my cousin for what i payed for it 10 years ago.

    1985 Crown Victoria: it was my winter car for a few years... until i get something new it's my daily driver. I payed $600 for it 4 years ago and only last week did i have a problem. The timing chain jumped... i'll fix it this week-end and she'll last another 4 years :)

    K-reg Renault Espace (2002-2004) First car after passing test. Needed something big to fit everyone in. Too many things wrong to list - suffice to say it was cheaper to get another car come MOT time

    L-reg Ford Escort (2004-2005) nice car - would have kept it longer, but was unsuitable for carting everyone around.

    M-reg Rover 314 (2005) a stop-gap car while Ford was being serviced - a pile of crap - hated it!

    M-reg Renault Savanna (2005-2006) Upgraded so as to be able to get everyone in again.

    N-reg Ford Mondeo (2006) My current car. After wife split, I gave her Renault (which she scrapped) and got myself a Ford, as memories of Escort made me want a decent car. Just need to get myself and boys around now, so no need for a biggie...

    1982 Dodge Aries - Sold it to an acquaintence. Heard he went bajaing in the woods and got it stuck in a log. He left it there to collect rust.

    1986 Pontiac Grand AM - Traded the car for a 1993 Suberu Loyale in 1998. Last I heard someone bought it and abandoned the car after it broke down.

    1993 Suberu Loyale - Got it repossessed. My ex-roomate bought it and thought he could flaunt it at me and all kind of emotional abuse ensues from that point. Last I heard, he wrecked it after I made my hasty disappearence.

    1990? Plymouth Caravelle - Great car, no A/C. Traded that car for a 2000 Honda Civic EX coupe I am currently paying off.

    1991 Mercury Topaz - A hand-me-down from my grandmother, I totaled it in November 2004.

    2004 Volkswagen Jetta - Two days after totalling my topaz I bought this beauty. I had been saving up for a new car since I turned 16 in 2002.

    92 Vauxhall Nova 1.2- Car I learned in, it usually managed to scare me in some way every trip!
    It got stolen and burnt out.

    98 Fiat Bravo 1.4- Parents bought me this after my Nova was stolen, since I needed a car for work and uni and couldn't afford one at the time. Not a bad looking car, was nippy and handled alright as well. The only main problem is that it was a Fiat, and as such the build quality isn't the best. Having gone through 2 brake lines and with various squeaks and rattles going on I stopped feeling so safe in the car. So I sold it and borowed some cash off my dad to buy.....

    00 Lexus IS200 sport - God I love this car. Every time I take her out I come home with a smile on my face. It even makes my mum jealous becuase her BMW doesn't have AC (or traction control that works). For a 6-year-old car there are practicly no creaks or rattles from the interior and the mechanicals are bulletproof considering it's a posh Toyota after all. Haven't succumbed to tuning it, but in the future I may go down to Toyota and have the supercharger option and the full TTE kit fitted :D

    1982 Dodge Ram Van: After years of faithful service, it got into a mode where it would stall if I drove it up hills. Of course living in a mountain town for college at the time didn't help.
    1991 Jeep Cherokee: Drove like a top, ran it into the ground until it was needing too much repair
    1999 Volkswagen beetle: Tons of horrible electrical problems... my first new car. Warranty covered nothing, the dealership was a bunch of stuck-up douchebags and parts cost a ton and took weeks to arrive. After getting a ticket for a broken turn signal (3rd time in 4 weeks it died and was replaced) I traded it in.
    2001 Jeep Libery: New car... love it. Good gas mileage, Chrysler is nice service and good parts. Thinking of buying a diesel version when more biodiesel pumps come near to my area.
