1982 Plymouth Sapporro my first car, my parents gave me $500, I saved up $2k. Fun little car with a 5 speed. It died because a new flywheel was more than half the cost of my next car.
1988 Pulsar I was in college and this car was fun. Another 5 speed which was fine on the flat roads in NC, but driving up hills was a challenge for the 1.6L. Blew a headgasket going up Afton Mountain.
1996 Civic EX another 5 spd which felt like a rocket compared to the Pulsar
1998 Ram 1500 - decided to ditch my office job and started a landscaping company (Civics dont haul mulch very well). This was the first automatic I ever owned. Was pretty stripped down and cost around 16k. Had a 318 CI and she was thirsty. Traded it in on a 2003 Chevy 2500HD when I decided to go big time and start hauling a 24' enclosed trailer. Loved that Chevy, all the power anyone would ever need in a truck from the 6.0L gasser. Averaged 9mpg hauling that big azz trailer in city traffic. Sold the lawn business and went back to work for the man so i took my wifes 2000 Explorer and bought her a 2001 Town and Country. The Explorer was great, had the upgraded 4.0 SOHC and looked really good in forest green. Got a sweet sales job and decided I needed to drive a sweet car so I bought a 2007 Mustang GT 5 speed. Decided to open another business so I traded in the Mustang on a 2004 F150...that hurt because I loved that Mustang. New business didnt go so well, went back to a sales job with tons of driving so I got the ultimate sales person car...a 2004 Saturn Ion😂, which was also a 5 speed. When the clutch gave up I needed something quick and found the 2009 Saturn Vue (still own it, but it is my daughters DD now). Got a sweet deal on my uncles old 1996 F150 5speed (still own it but barely drive it anymore). Had and office job near my home so the 15mpg from the 5.0 didnt bother me. The FBI decided that my former boss committed bank fraud, wire fraud, and other crimes so I got a new job that requires 60 miles of highway travel everyday. Im old now so I need an automatic, but I still want to enjoy driving. Found the 2007 Mustang GT in my sig on Facebook marketplace. She needed a lot of little things done but the price was way under anything else that was fun to drive and it gave me tons of weekend projects.
During all of this time my wife has owned a 1988 Prelude 5 speed, the Explorer mentioned above, the 2001 Town and Country mentioned above, and the 2009 Flex that is in my signature. Starting to consider a replacement for the Flex but everything my wife likes costs over 30k and we are both too cheap to pull the trigger. Plus i enjoy working on cars and the Flex is giving me plenty to work on lately😂

1986 Dodge D150- this was a fully loaded truck for its day. I bought it in 96
1988 Ford Taurus
1995 Dodge Caravan
2002 Chrysler Voyager- 3 of my 4 kids learned to drive in this, even the one that came home from the hospital after he was born in the same van. I thought that was cool. Most people think it odd of me to care.

2013 Nissan Altima
2016 Nissan Rogue
2014 Chrysler Town and Country- wife’s current DD
2009 Toyota Camry- Daughters current DD

Another 1986 D100
1995 Jeep YJ I currently own and am having to talk myself out of selling due to a needed engine rebuild I’m not sure I want to do.

Cars for the kids that went with them:
1998 Altima- sold and bought next car
2000 Toyota Camry- son still owns and drives. It just took major hail damage in a storm in Omaha
2002 VW Beetle- just sold and put my daughter in my Camry

I also have had a slew of company vehicles. Mostly pickups, but I had a 2012 Camry for work that made me a huge fan of those cars.

This is a fun post!

Thanks for the fun trip down the memory lane. Here we go.
- 2001 Honda Civic LX coupe. Auto tranny blew soon after I sold it. ooops.
- 2005 Nissan Altima 2.5S. Eh.
- 2001 Honda Civic LX coupe. T-boned in passenger side and whiplashed into another vehicle with the driver side. New owner fixed all damage, just to have the auto tranny bite the dust soon after. Double ooops.
- 2008 Mazda 6i, 2.3L manual. Comfiest driver seat I ever sat in. A huge bonus on long drives, 31MPG with 500+ mile range was nice too.
- 2003 Pontiac Vibe. Most reliable vehicle I ever had. Sold at 285k miles.
- 2001 Lexus IS300. Should've kept it.

- 2009 Scion xB2. Awesome spacious daily driver. Couple deer at 5AM killed it.
- 1995 Chevrolet Tahoe. Love the 5.7L V8. Love the 4x4. Hate the 12MPG.
- 2000 Honda CRV. B20z2/5MT/AWD. Tons of fun off the pavement with All Terrain tires. On pavement super slow, yet still super fun. Burned oil like there is no tomorrow. (1qt per every fuel fill, roughly every ~275 miles.)
- 2006 Toyota Camry 3.0L V6. It's a Camry, 'nuff said. Currently on spare car duty, when daily drivers go down.
- 2010 Volvo XC70 3.2L AWD. Amazing family hauler station wagon. Got up to 30MPG hwy. Sold at over 270k miles.
- 2010 Toyota Avalon. Took over the family hauler status after selling the Volvo. Japanese Buick, but better.
- 1990 GMC Sierra 1500. Current DD, when weather doesn't allow me to ride the scooter. (I ride down to 30F, as long as its dry.)

BONUS two-wheel fleet:
- 2020 Honda Ruckus. 49CC/40MPH/110MPG. Sold.

Oh, btw... This may be a shock for some, but out of all these cars the most reliable ones had Salvaged/Rebuilt titles. All the ones that sucked my wallet dry were Clean title cars. Take it as you will.
