I was just thinking about all the vehicles I have owned. So I decided to make a thread.

2013 Buick Regal GS 6M
1983 Chevette - college car, spent a month’s summer job pay to upgrade he stereo and speakers.

1990 Mazda MX-6 - this was the boxy sedan design, not the sleek sporty design that would come a few years later.

1994 Ford Probe GT - fantastic sounding Mazda V6 engine. Solid car.

1996 Audi A4 2.8 Quattro (bought used in 1997) - loved the styling and stereo, hated everything else. See the thread on worst car ever owned. Blech!

1999 BMW 328i (bought used in 2002) - friend made me go drive a BMW and I loved it. Liked the driving experience so much that...

2004 BMW 330i w/ Sport Pkg - really great car, and very reliable. Only spent $800 in unscheduled maintenance during the 9 years I owned it.

2013 Buick Regal GS - extremely enjoyable daily driver, was a fantastic ownership experience until the past 11 months as I’ve had 3 high cost repairs, which means I’m looking to replace it soon.

Car colors, in order: Red, Maroon, Black, Silver, Black, Blue, Black. Also, everyone of them had a manual transmission, and unfortunately I think I’m gonna have to get an automatic in my next vehicle.

Wow, a DeLorean owner. That is incredible.
It was interesting to say the least. It was in Rough shape mechanically.. but looked badass and only $7000(in 2000). I was just out of college, a poor military guy with college loans and it was stretch to afford my dream car. I loved it but it was not what I needed at that phase in my life. I should have held onto it...I could probably have doubled, tripled my money(or more). But good ole Lucas electronics in a vehicle assembled in Northern Ireland...what could possibly go wrong? Answer: small electrical fire. After that I was concerned the gull wing doors would not function as needed in an emergency+ I really couldn't afford it nor was it practical as a daily driver.

Yeah, buying a car built by a coke dealer rarely turns out well.

You got to be “older” like me if you had a 59 Bug Eyed Sprite. Back in 1960-61 when I was with the.
Naval Detachment at an American Embassy on the third largest island in the Mediterranean, most of the young guys bought Bug Eyed Sprites but I had a little extra money so I bought a Triumph TR3A. (Those were the days).
Now when I see a TR3, I not only wonder how I got in it, but wonder how I got out of it.
I forgot to mention the 1964 Triumph TR-4 with the true wire wheels that I owned, in addition to the "79 MGB with A/c & O/D . I always wanted an Austin Healy 3000, but could not come up with the cash to buy one, back in the day. I will be looking for one soon!

I love this game!

My first car, a 1992 Honda Accord LX hand me down from Dad



The first car I ever bought myself, a 2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT



next I picked up this 2007 BMW 335i



Then I went retro with a 1986 Mercedes Benz 190E 2.3-16



My first quasi-American car, a 2008 Pontiac G8 GT



Then a company car which eventually became my own (sort of involuntarily lol) a 2018 Nissan Rogue S



and finally, my current pride & joy, a 2013 Audi S4.



Hoping to add a Regal TourX to the end of this list, to replace the Rogue!
