Default Previous cars you have owned.

Ok so I am curious about what types of cars everyone has owned before there current one. I am 30 and have had quite a few cars, where my sister has only had 4 cars total in her life. She actually still owns her 2nd car.


My list

1986 1/2 Nissan Hardbody
1992 Isuzu Amigo
2000 VW Jetta VR6
1998 Chevy Camaro
1974 Chevy Camaro (same time as the 9
1998 Ford Ranger
1992 Jeep Wrangler
2000 VW Jetta VR6 (current)
and hopefully soon a new xB or maybe xP if they make it.

Never hear of an Integra Rhombus....

Amazing what lack of punctuation can do, eh?

Sorry Yanges! Actually the xB does really well in comparison... of course you have more of a tuner feel in the integra, but the xB has such a low center of gravity for the type of vehicle that it is that I'm loving it. I love the extra room too... although my integra was fully loaded and that was nice... leather seats and a sunroof would have been nice things to have in my xB... I sometimes miss my integra because it was such a low profile car... there are quite a few out there and it just sneaks through traffic so nicely... but I never miss it as an alternative to my new xB! Only in addition... if I could afford both, I'd have both
