2000 VW Jetta VR6
1998 Chevy Camaro
1974 Chevy Camaro (same time as the 98)
1998 Ford Ranger
1992 Jeep Wrangler

'73 Ford LTD with 400ci Cleveland Engine (really would go 115mph :naughty:)
'80 Cutlass Supreme with factory pin striping
'94 Subaru Legacy (the toughest car I've ever owned)
'95 Honda Accord Coupe
'01 Nissan Maxima (always surprised people with how fast it could accelerate :eek:)
'06 Toyota Seqouia (you can drive it a such an angle the side airbags will deploy unless you shut them off)
'08 Scion xB ( the most fun and stylish car I've ever owned :yes: )
that 400ci, was well known as the "400 small block", a coveted motor by mechanics as it was easy to make into a race engine and was cheap to build. You could always note a 400; on the front of the engine the cam has a round outer body except for a flat cut out on it.
1988 Oldsmobile Delta 88 - killed two motors in this one.

1968 Camero RS *Not actually mine, my Dad was the original owner. I got to drive it for a summer. It was in rough shape, but I loved that car.

1991 Honda Accord EX -great car, traded in for the 93 because I thought it would be more reliable and last me longer since it had half the miles.

1993 Honda Accord EX - killed two transmissions in this one. Money pit. Sold it for scrap metal, then saw it back on the road.

2005 Ford Ranger Edge - Still have it. Drove it as primary vehicle until I found the need for a second childs seat. It has been good to me.

1999 Camry - Briefly to tide me over between the Accord and xB.

2011 Scion xB - first new car.

Wow, the paint on that car looks great. 8)
first car: 1984 Buick Regal Limited - so baller.
traded it for a 1993 pontiac firebird - 3.5L... non v8 for me :(
traded that for a 2001 Oldmobile Alero - college car good on gas. commuter FTW! such a lame car though haha.
Traded that for a 2005 Mercedes C 320 4 Matic - back to baller status.
Warranty on that ran out so traded that for a 2009 Scion xB - black
Electrical issues with the fuse box so I traded that for a 2010 Scion xB - my current one.
Made that one too low for winter so I bought a 2005 dodge Magnum - currently known as the Swagnum.
And wanted something fast so I traded in the wifes 2003 honda Civic for a 2008 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE coupe, for the wife but fun as **** to drive!
