So what kind of car have you ever owned? not only that but tell about your experience and what you would rate it.. =)

86' toyota celica...2 door stick-shift..my very first car..thought it was the best didn't care if it was old but i was thinking i was slick since i had a car in high school haha..not that much room in the back but i like it ..o yah the car color was like light blue...i lost the car becasue my dad sold it when i went to jail..-_-

2000 Toyota Camry...Burgandy red..4 door...automatic..i thought this was a great commute car..6 cylinder engine...the only thing i had in this car was a touch screen stero the ghost pionneer i think it was...crashed this car into a power pole...total loss on the car...

91' Civic hatchback...Light green..this car was super super slow...but it did have an exhuast system on it which screamed loud but went nowhere...went to jail and let my buddy watch my car and he messed it up....got out drove on the freeway taking my gf somewhere and the car engine blew up ....all up in smoke and everything haha

93' Toyota Mr2...I absolutely loved this car soooo much...i invest a lot of money into it..i enjoyed the rwd plus i thought it was cool how the engine was in the middle of the car..the only down side was it was very hard to fix the engine or add anything in...most of the mods for this car was in audio and for interior...i also did change the back lights to black and rounded lights instead...fell asleep on the wheel total loss on the car..sigh 7 grand down the drain haha

97' HOnda Del Sol....black..stick shift...b18b1 engine in it because the car was stolen and they stole the original dohc engine...just wanna say this new engine is crappy and slow which lead me to buy another car...

1988 Jeep Cherokee ~ My first vehicle. 2 Door, Stick shift. It was a hand-me-down from my middle brother. I loved it, the only problem I had with it was that transmission parts were not available because it used a goofy Peugot tranny. I got rid of it when I got the Jeep Wrangler.

1983 Hurst Olds ~ Auto Tranny, 2 door. I loved this car, but it sucked gas and was gut-less (**** 307 V8, with 4 barrel carb). But, I still loved the car. It's currently back in my dad's possession with the rest of his collector cars.

1994 Jeep Wrangler ~ 2 Door, stick shift. I still have it (it's the family work horse). Easy to work on, decent power and four-wheel-drive. Never got stuck with it, pulled many people out. It isn't a great commuter vehicle (no sound dampening inside, bumpy ride).

1988 Toyota Supra ~ 2 door, Stick shift (not the turbo, sadly). The car wasn't bad, my dad picked it up for me before I left college and moved back closer to home. The car had issues, and I found it hard to work on. I had to remove most of the intake manifold just to change spark plugs. Overall, I'd buy this era Supra again, but newer (1990-1991) with the turbo. I traded this car in when I got the Lancer.

1990 Honda Prelude ~ 2 door, stick shift. I really liked this car because it ran like a champ with 220,000 miles on it. I had to fix the previous owner's attempt to rice it out. I sold this car to buy an engagement ring.

2005 Mitsubishi Lancer ~ 4 door, stick shift. This has been my commuter car for the past 3 years. I bought it brand new from the local dealer. It was cheaper to buy brand new, than get a 3 year old Honda Civic with 50,000 miles (equipped similarily). I've have nothing but good things to say about the car. I've had to do nothing but general maintenance (knock on wood). I probably won't be buying another Mitsubishi again, just because most parts are not available, and because the customer service from Mitsubishi in general isn't the greatest.

1998 VW Bug ~ 2 door, stick shift. I just got this car for the wife as a second commuter car. The car isn't bad, it's just not the most manly car. The car came with a lot of issues, so I can't really comment on how I enjoy until after i've fixed everything. Right now I can say it's got some electrical issues, but what do you expect for one of the first model year cars.

1990

The only other car I owned was a 2002 VW Jetta (VR6)
It was a pretty quick car, but it was a piece of ***. I had it in the shop every 2 weeks for something new.
I had to get rid of it because it wouldn't start, and the tranny got ***** so badly the mechanics couldn't even figure out what was wrong with it. Since day one it was a piece of crap.

Had a 1988 Honda accord LXi- 2 door five speed.I basically drove this car into the ground. Ran it at the track 16.5, I loved this car Quite possibly the best first car anyone could have. I got tboned by a deer, and rust pretty much were the end of it. Sold for 800 at auction with 276,xxx on the clock. I got it with 212,xxx on it. This thing was a tank.

Then I bought the '92 3000GT. Bought it for 4100 at auction, put about 1200 into it and then racked up a tab at Midas... The second week I had it I was STOPPED at a stop sign and had a deer run right into me... twice. and then jump over my hood. Dent in the fender and broken mirror, Got the glass fixed it but it had a broken motor tab so the glass would move around. Finnally got a new fender about four months ago and just got all new mirrors tonight.
Then the oil pump blew on me in june.

Between June 07 and and august I drove

a 2004 Nissan Frontier, Freaking sweet truck even if it is underpowered. Crew cab extended bed 4wd this thing does farely well off road, better than that **** f250

A 2006 Honda Accord V6 6speed... fully loaded leather everything. Really nice car.

Then I bought a 2007 Scion TC. Its nice but its cheap, the interior is cheap, but the thing is nicest in its price range.
