2004 325i sedan*
2006 330ci
1997 318i sedan
1999 Lexus GS400

*in 2008, right after I bought this my son's mom totalled her car so I bought her a 41k mi 2000 323i sedan. When we split, I didn't want it as it was meant to be hers. Her new bf viewed me buying it as a way of us still being connected (he must've missed the part where we had a kid together 😂) so he made her pay me for the car. I bought a set of Bilstein coilovers for the Mustang & gave her back the rest when they broke up. She's since totalled the BMW & 3 other cars

I'm no Atikovi but about 110. Many were for a few days or weeks. Before Cash for Clunkers flipping cars was fun and profitable.

Side question for you guys who run your few cars into the dirt, how much money do you put into keeping it running and how do you decide it's truly dead?

If only I had been like that... but I had fun.(y)

Side question for you guys who run your few cars into the dirt, how much money do you put into keeping it running and how do you decide it's truly dead?

We ran our Expedition until it was "unsafe" according to my mechanic buddy, the floor was getting punky on the passenger side. But, guy I sold it to seems to be still driving it so... 🤷‍♂️ We never really decided it was "dead", in fact, I've never had a car die (sent to the wreckers). We've always sold them, even if they were cars we drove for many years, like the Expedition. We sold it with 338,000Km on it (210,000 miles).

That said, I spent far more money than I should have on it in the last few years we had it. Dealer lost the key, had to get a new one programmed by a locksmith using the code (was the only key). Put all new brakes, including callipers on it (Motorcraft). Think I had a ball joint done? Can't remember on that one. Front U-joints replaced, had put new Michelin LTX M/S2's on it, but sold those to my dad and sold it with his nearly bald ones on it.

It wasn't an expensive vehicle to own though, other than gas and it needed very few repairs over the time we owned it. My M5 was far more "needy" in comparison.

I'd have to look at my records, but for the 260k+ Accord

Excluding multiple sets of tires, brake pads, rotors, bulbs, wipers, oil changes etc.

New Trans at 110k - Honda paid half of it (~$1500)
Front LCA's have been replaced (Moog) ($100)
Shocks Replaced (Koni) ($400)
2 - Timing Belt Jobs - 1 Done at the Honda Dealer, I did the other one which included a valve adjustment ($1100/$400)
PS Pump O-Ring ($2)
Reman Starter ($100)
2 - Sets of motor mounts (Cheap Ebay mounts, about $50-60 a set)
1 - Window regulator (Drivers rear of all things) ($50)
Drivers Side CV Axle (GSP) ($60)

That's all I can come up with off the top of my head.

The car looks rough, but the vast majority of it is all original.

2012 Dodge Caliber SXT
2016 Chrysler 300S
2018 Dodge Grand Caravan GT

Took us awhile, but we finally found the 2 vehicles that fit our life really well. Out of those, the Toyota overheated once and destroyed the engine, the Durango was a bit of a money pit… the rest were great just didn’t fit our lives.

I’ve only owned 2 cars and I’m 33 years old. I must be weird.

2001 Saturn SL (bought used)
2011 Mazda6 (bought new)
2018 Buick Encore (wife’s car)

Edit: I guess I should include my wife’s Buick she bought before we were married. So technically I’ve owned 3 cars.
