Folllowing the spirit of Liteonguy's thread "how many computers do you own", and this thread:

How many cars have you owned?

Me, 6, all your average normal cars. No exotics, owned most cars for over 3-4 years.

I love cars, but I don't understand how some ppl can collect so many gorgeous and expensive cars so quickly!!

Ever since I was born, my parents have owned 6 cars, with 3 of them still around.

As for myself, I'm driving around my dad's old car since I can't afford the car I want yet. I'm just waiting for graduation to finally get me something nice.

What car might be the one you desire, out of curiosity?

My list of achievable collectibles IF I was to win a small jackpot:

1) Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo (if only I could find one in good shape, low miles).

2) Toyota Supra (last few years model would be good)

3) Mazda RX-7 (again a late model)

4) Lexus SC300 (manual tranny all the way!)

5) Dodge Stealth R/T (I just love the styling).

My list of unattainable collectibles:

1) Lamborghini Countach
2) Diablo
3) Murcielago (this is my dream car!)
4) Ferrari Modena
5) anything by Ferrari since the Testarosa
6) Pretty much any other racer for $200k or higher

Of course all cars MUST be manual transmission.

The only other extravagance I would allow is a Bentley, just for driving the wife and kids around, after I won that $100 million lottery :wink:

The car I want right now is the Nissan 350Z Track Model. But over the next 2 years, that decision can be easily changed if something better comes out.

I really like how you have the Supra and RX-7 on your list as they are very nice and can be extremely fast if tuned correctly. You should look into the Nissan Skyline GT-R, as its even better than the 300ZX.

Very nice list of collectibles you have there. Ferrari and Lambo are tops in the world of Super Cars. But I would never buy a Lambo unless I was a mega millionaire. Ferrari is my true love.

If I ever won the lottery, I'm going straight to the car dealership. :D

Hmmm. Rather boring for me. Just two Nissan Sunnys (I know they're not the most interesting car in the world but they're just so reliable ;)). Mind you I've driven a Sunny GTi-R, what a little stormer that car is, 0-60 in 5.1 seconds, woo-hoo!!!! :D

Other car is a crappy 1992 Vauxhall (GM) Cavalier 1.6GL. Ooh look, manual sunroof :roll:

Good Question

1973 4-Door Chevy Chevelle
My dad brought it cheap from the company he worked for - it was painted bright yellow and my freinds called it "the taxi". If you ever want to make freinds in high school drive a 4-door. Ugly but it had a nice back seat! :lol:

1981 4-Door Pontiac Grand LeMans
Another cheap ride for college, good gas milage.

1985 Olds Cutlass
A great car - strong 305 V-8, had it for 8 years and put almost 2 million miles driving 60 miles to/from work everyday. I wish I still had it. I sold it to a woman who went out and got wrecked it about 3 months later! 2 years ago I saw it on blocks in someones driveway. Pissed me off that someone could treat a car that way.

1991 Mercury Cougar
3.8 V-6, decent power, great gas mileage but the person I sold it to blew a rod a couple months later. Glad I sold the thing!

1995 Mercury Cougar
3.8 V-6, its now my mother's work car. I wanted a V-8 and power accessories. Painted bright cherry red and a real head turner.

1995 Ford Thunderbird
4.6 V-8, awesome highway car, but Im thinking about getting a Ford Explorer or Jeep Grand Cherokee

I have never owned a car; I still can't afford insurance. :(

My parents have owned 4 vehicles since I was born. Two of them are still around.
