Order of the vehicles I've owned:
(actually have pics of all, nothing uploaded though)
1987 Buick Somerset (2dr Skylark) - owned for a year before someone decided not to stop before driving across a highway...on my birthday, yay.
1987 Olsmobile 98 - owned it for 2 years, brought it to Macco for a cheap paint job, stolen by one of the empolyees, went for a joy ride, took most of the items out of the car, and ditched it. It took 4 weeks to find the car two blocks away from Macco, already bought my next car before they found it. The air ride was a nice touch on this car, very nice interior, and the climate control was AWESOME, could make you sweat at -20F and make you shiver in 100F weather.
1989 Buick Lesaber - same chassis but a downgrade, owned it for 4 years till the line pressure cable broken and ruined the tranny. It wasn't worth the rebuild. Interestingly, this is the first car I learned to drift with, haha.
1988 Ford Ranger - my bro's for 8 years then mine. 50hp, 2wd, power nothing, and a half ton bed. It was slow and bouncy but fun to beat on. It went to the junk yard when I got my first Forester.
2002 Subaru Forester L - Yay, my first Subaru. I didn't do much with this car. I owned it for a year before a deer took care of it on one day to work.
2002 Subaru Forester S - Tada, another Forester, ooow an S model, high ballin' now. The winter weather package with rear lsd and rear disk brakes were benefits though. This one I modded after getting into auto-x and rally-x with it. +4 years later, I still have it, and it's put up with my abuse well.
suppose i'll add mine...
[sold] '91 gmc sonoma 4x2
[sold] 85 honda prelude
[sold] 91 honda prelude SI grenada black/black [stolen, recovered, broken into countless times,sold, still miss it at times]
[sold] '66 vw beetle. silver/red interior My 1st and only car with metal dash and no seat belts stock. easy to work on, fun to drive. i miss it's simplicity (sometimes)
[sold] '85 chevy s10 4x4 4spd, great in the snow, zombie loved driving it without a clutch...
[sold] '91 civic si hatchback poor purchase-->was abused by prior owners
[sold] '99 civic ex, cheapest car to run i ever had
[sold] '85 saab spg. black/tan, loved this car and regret selling it, one of the most fun cars i've driven, also my first car with a turbo. was sold and moved to canada.
[sold] '07 ducati monster 695 dark
'05 volvo S60 R black/atacama
'02 wrx midnight blue pearl
atacamar - that s60 looks awesome! Any more of the interior? Thats the same color as an Audi I owned that claimed to have a porsche interior package.
Yeah, I'll try to dig up a few more pics. The interior actually is really nice leather and the seats are some of the most comfortable around. I find the color amazing, you either love it or hate it I guess. Owners were surprised to find it came from Bridge of Weir http://www.bowleather.co.uk/bow/Home_2010.aspx
finally got around to pulling up some old pics.
I've since replaced the shift knob and still love the gauges, the lcd is really green not how it appears below.
-93 plymouth laser
-92 legacy L
-94 talon tsi
-04 optima ex
-2000 outback sedan limited DD
-94 turbo legacy
atacamar, that interior is sick. I dont know who wouldnt like it, other than someone who isn't a fan of great leather and a warm color like that. I got so many compliments on the interior of that Audi. Looks like the exact same leather that was in mine, probably came from the same company. I have only seen that in two cars to date, yours and the Audi. I think the new F150 King ranch comes with a couple of weird colors but I bet the quality isnt close.

missing a few more ..
Well....heres some of mine....
I had my rice moments but hey it's okay! LOL
These are the only ones I could find pics of....i've had a bunch more too but this should be good enough =)
pretty big list. mostly pos??? there are a few on there i'd gladly drive,,,
Thanks for the kind words.. I wanted to get an 05 S60R(got the A4 instead), but the fear of not being able to maintain it kept me from getting it. Nice car you got.
smart move, the s60r isn't light on the pocket book when it comes to repairs. just lost my slave cyl (internal to bell housing FTL) before that a radiator earlier this summer(crappy plastic ends/mount design) radiator went at 70, slave at 75k. It does help doing repairs yourself though.
though any euro cars won't be cheap on repairs hopefully the audi is treating you well.
I thank my wrx for allowing me to pull one car out of service for work now that it's done.
'99 Dodge Intrepid
'03 Mitsubish Eclipse GTS
'04 Subaru WRX
'05 Subaru STi
>>though any euro cars won't be cheap on repairs hopefully the audi is treating you well.
Traded the audi a while ago for a Mazda. I did the maintenance on the Audi myself. When it was traded in, it was in far less than stellar condition!

Well, donated #10 and bought #11 off my folks.
#2) found this old picture and took a pic of it with my cell phone lol
#11) same spot, 12 years later
I think I'm going to have more fun modding this than I did with the Subarus!
Bump. Updates anyone?
As you already know...added one to my repetoir!
67 short box 4wd Chevy pick up. 72 front end. Disc brake conversion. Built SBC 350. This was my first ride, and I miss it. But don't miss 9 MPG runnin premium lol!
Details on the 350? Currently swapping a built 383.
Bored .030 over. Hyperutectic pistons. Edelbrock 600 cfm (i think) Carb. Crane cam w/ .456 gross valve lift, 270 duration. Mallory unilite distributer. Stock intake manifold with spacer. Shaved heads (1.96 intake valves if I remember right). Dual flowmaster exhaust. It was a fun truck!
Still have the Subarus but added a 2011 silverado as my new daily driver. *I think I've talked myself into selling the STi this spring/summer.
Found the last pic of the ranger after trading it in on the forester.
I'm sure it could get outta hand for some if they include bikes and whatnot but I've only had two so here.
Former-02 Suzuki sv650
Current-07 gsx-r600 *may be for sale
Nice! Tell me more about the silverado. Been thinking about dumping the 4runner for a proper tow rig since the project cars seem to be multiplying like mogwais
It's big and red........lol. We were looking for a full size crew cab truck so we can haul a few people and do basic homeowner stuff and not having to plan switching cars for the day (using the forester to tow the boat) We looked at all the major players and it really came down to finding a good deal on it. sticker was just over 40k and we paid 30 during an end of the year blah blah special. Some other trucks made more hp/tq, probably haul more etc but the 5.3 motor has been around for a bit and the chevy rides nice and does everything we need which really isn't much more than the basics. Sadly it's such a pleasure driving it that it's helped with the desicion to possibly sell the STi which is fun but kinda a chore(loud,stiff,mt)
Here's my list in the order I owned them.
79" Olds Cutlass
87' Pontiac Firebird with a 350 put in it.
88' Pontiac Sunbird GT turbo
77' Dodge shaggin wagon-piece of crap
80' Cadillac Coupe DeVille
93' Mazda MX-6
96' Ford Probe GT
9? Ford Exploder
98' Chevy S-10 Blazer
02' Subaru WRX sedan
97' Subaru Impreza Wagon
03' Subaru Legacy Wagon
11' Subaru WRX hatch
70's Kawasaki 100 dirtbike
87' Yamaha FJ600
03' Kawasaki Z1000
10' Victory Vegas Low
Nice! Got any pics of the 350 swap or the snoop deville?
Ben, which trim is it?
It's an LT. w/ Z71, "convenience pkg" (remote start,defogp,ark assist...) "allstar edition which includes things like trailering pkg,hd cooling, fog lamps ...etc" we also got bucket seats, 18" wheels and the best option as we have very little wiggle room in the garage is the back up camera

My Celica, bought this over 2 years ago. By far the most I've ever spent on a car ($1850), and by far the most I've ever driven one car (going on 50k miles). Slow, but handles great, and get's pretty decent mileage.
And I got this '84 Subaru Brat from Dynapar last spring. Working on an EJ18 swap and 4.444 dual-range transmission for it:
