all the pictures I have are different sizes so I need to resize them, but my cars past present and future are as follows
1999 Chevy Cavalier coupe auto (black)
2002 Chevy Cavalier sedan auto (silver)
1996 Jeep Cherokee Sport 5spd(blue)
1998 Mercury Grand Marquis auto (blue)
2007 Chevy Cobalt LS coupe 5spd (black)
2012 Mustang v6 Performance package 6spd (grabber blue)
future car-some sort of Pagani or a '68 Hurst olds 442(all original numbers matching)
I also have a 1996 nissan 240sx project car, and ive rebuilt a 1969 AMC javelin, and a 1988 firebird.
1986 Dodge 600: Seeing the picture of this car brings back many memories of my senior year of high school. The Dodge 600 coupe I had was a hard top though. My sister gave it to me when she flew away to college.
1987 Toyota pickup: This was what I drove when my Dodge was broken. Great little truck. If I could find one like this now but a 4x4 I would buy it. So I could beat around my property hauling dirt and gravel. Easy to fix. So reliable. This was towards the end of my senior year in high school.
1992 Ford Escort GT: I really liked this car. I gave it to my mom when I bought this bad boy-- my all time favorite car to this day, wait for it...
1992 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX: Turbo AWD black on black leather. I LOVE THIS CAR. But I was a 19 year old at the time who abused the car and raced it waaay too much. But its cool though, I'll never find another like it. Its time has passed. I miss it a lot. Even though it was just a car it was the first one I had ever financed and I took care of it so well other than running it hard all the time. I kep it clean and changed the fluids. I took apart the engine and fixed things my self. I learned a lot about this car and that is probably why I got so attached to it. But anyway... moving on... (by the way this is a picture of somebody elses. But it looks almost exactly like the one I had, my rims were nicer though. And mine was a little lower. But I had no sunroof).
2006 Nissan Altima 2.5 S: This is what I have now. It is my daily driver and it used to be the family car. Great MPG. Manual transmission. And very boring. But hey, I am almost 30 now with 2 kids and one due in November. I have to wait until my mid life crisis to get another toy.
2004 GMC Envoy: My wife drives this. Family hauler, grocery getter and solidifies my life into boring-ness.
And that concludes my life span of cars. Someday I'll get a toy, someday...
In the future

I will not bore you with a list of the autos that my four children went though.
My two youngest daughters.. on the same day.. on the same road even.. totaled their cars to give you some idea of how that has gone lol.
My autos of the future.. wife would likely do another Grand Am or something similar
I'll do another pickup... but no extended cab next time.
I love how this thread seems to bring a sense of; I don't know. Down to earth-ness? Its like you can feel the brutal honesty of it. I know taht sounds silly, but I can't explain it. Hehe, oh well. Maybe its just me
I am enjoyin this. Now back to League of Legends... hehe.
How did you like that Infiniti? We have a 20GT, and I hate all the power stuff on it.
Only good thing - it handles fairly well, and it's a stick.
Current vehicle: 96 4x4 Tacoma SX. Love that truck.
Only other car I'd want - 1962-64 Triumph TR4. I had a Spitfire.

I liked my car a lot but of course its not without it's issues. The biggest problem for me was the gas mileage. If I did only city, which was most of the time since I didn't go out of Bloomington, the gas mileage would be below 15 MPG. A mixture of highway and city would be about 20-22MPG, which was basically the normal amount. I did also have some weird problem where my windows would occassionally go down overnight. It happened like 3-4 times before I took it to the dealership. The positives I guess were that I got a lot of compliments on the car... even by a policeman who pulled me over a long time ago. lol The interior is really nice and I love the navigation system. My brother is going to take my car and have it repainted in a dark red since he doesnt like white (my fav color). Since I'm going to be in Manhattan for a long time, it would've been a big waste to just let it sit at home and make my parents keep paying insurance and whatever else on it.
My first car was a 1971 Olds Cutlass, I don't have any good pics of it. Here's one I stole off the web.
My current two cars are my red sled, and my Mountaineer. I drive the Mountaineer more than the other since it gets better gas mileage. I took the pic of the Mountaineer the day I drove it off the lot. Isn't that always the best part of buying the car?
First - 1995 Ford Ranger. It was purple & I named it "The Grape." I LOVED that truck.
Current - 2007 Ford Focus.

All images borrowed, but in correct trim and colors. Also my classics that either stayed in project form or are in the midst don't get pics since they aren't done.
First car - 1996 Mercury Sable GS. Bought in 1998 every option but CD. Piece of shit, broke constantly. 2 computers and one rewire, 3 transmissions, gauge cluster/headlights just to name a few. So glad my grandmother stipulated that the money I inherited for a car had to have a warranty purchased as well.
1970 Dodge Challenger R/T - Bought as non running restification project and sold a week later for stupid profit.
1965 Pontiac 2+2 - 421 with a 4-bbl. I loved that thing, but it was too nice and rare to do what I wanted to do with it. Also I bleed Pentastar when it comes to classics.
2002 Chrysler Concorde LXi - Great car, could carry 5 people and 4-5 bodies in the trunk and get great mileage whilst looking pretty damn good for a modern car.
1968 Dodge Charger - My dream car, the only year with circular taillights. Originally only had 3 options; 383, hood mounted turn signals, and console. Just want I wanted, a big block without a lot of options so I'd have no guilt while I am tearing it apart for a 440 and modifying the chassis. The only car I am certain I will have when I die.
Current Daily driver, 2007 MAZDASPPED3 GT - 0-60 in under 6 seconds and I average nearly 27mpg enjoying the hell out of it.
