Default How many cars have you owned?

The ultimate car thread got me to thinking about all the cars I've owned over the years. (I still haven't gotten my beloved Austin Healey 3000)

I decided to make a list to see if I could remember them all. I don't think I left any out.

(in order of when they were acquired)

1969 VW Bug
1964 Chevy Impala SS
1974 Chevy Vega
1964 Chevy Impala SS
1976 VW Rabbit
1972 Triumph Spitfire
1970 Chevy Truck
1973 Ford Courier
1971 VW Super Beetle
1972 Pontiac GTO
1973 Ford Capri 2600
1969 Pontiac Catalina Station Wagon
1970 VW Bus
1978 Pontiac Catalina 4-door Sedan
1973 Ford Capri 2600
1989 Ford Festiva
1976 Triumph Spitfire 1500
1974 MG Midget
1991 Mazda Miata
1968 Triumph Spitfire
1994 Mazda Miata
1987 Suzuki Samurai
2000 Mazda Miata

23 cars total from 1979 to present.

1996 - 2003 Orange and white (and rust) colored Ford Bronco II
2004 - Present Nissan Quest

Yep, a huge list.

In comparison, my ex- FIL had owned 26 cars by the time I knew him. And probably spent $1000 total to buy them. Classy guy, he was.

While I seemed to have pretty much landed on and stuck to Jeep and Harley, my father-in-law is a dealer in North Florida and owns/owned several junkyards in the area. He seems to live for unique cars. He had one of the first SMART cars here in the states even before they where "legal" - had to keep Canadian plates and registration on it for over a year. Right now he is real big into different "minis" from the UK. I don't even know what most of them are - one of them is this tiny truck with a flatbed. He also has an Indy car that has been modified to be street legal. It is pretty damn cool but uncomfortable as hell to drive - it is a tight fit.

In 40 years, only five plus two motorcycles. I drive them until they fail. Still pi$$ed I had to donate my '89 Civic wagon. Only had 204,000 miles on it, but California couldn't find a copy of the title & Oregon won't let an individual re-title a car.

I'll probably have my Sprinter van the day I die. They routinely go a half million miles.
