How many cars, and which ones, have you had?

I saw a car[s]/drive thread from last fall, but I wanted to duscuss the past, a bit...So...

How many cars have you had, which ones, and did you like them? I will post my list in a bit, after a few replies...(I have had around 18 -including my 2 present ones, I think, so give me a sec).

Suggested format, using my first car:

Year Make Model Description Like/Dislike Year[s]

1978 Lancia Beta 1800 Saloon Smooth and quick Loved it

Re: How many cars, and which ones, have you had?

Currently I have 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Fully Loaded. I absolutely love everything besides it is all time 4 wheel drive and I can't take it to two wheel drive. It has a quadradrive system on it. Other wise it is awesome, not the best on mileage...but when i get done with school i won't be driving near as much.

Granted i did just turn 21, i have only had one other car and it was a 1997 Chevy Monte Carlo. I really liked the car. The gas mileage wasn't too bad either. It held up pretty well for the torturing i gave it! I learned to drive in it and got my speed demon attitude out of me in it too. So it held up fairly well considering the circumstances.

I learned to drive on the Lancia, and that pretty-much killed it...The ball joint in the shift-linkage was an easy fix; but when the clutch went, and the motor needed to be pulled to replace it, my dad said "Later Larry Lancia!"

Re: How many cars, and which ones, have you had?

1985 Monte Carlo SS my first car, had it from 1999 until this past January. loved that thing but Chevy dropped the ball, it should have came with a 350 and 5 speed. and it rusted too much.

currently a 2007 Tacoma 2wd/4cyl access cab. I really like it but it has no balls to speak of. Though I wasn't looking for speed so its not an issue.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

1992 Honda Civic Si Hatchbach. It was a fun car to drive and it cost very little to run it.
2006 Chevrolet Cobalt SS. This thing is my baby. I love it. No complaints with this car at all.

I like those...Sort of looks like a baby (new)GTO...Very Holden-esque...Now, if they had a supercharged GNX V-6...

I assume you're talking about the Taco. no idea where you got those displacements. it only comes in a 2.7 4cyl which is what I have and a 4.0 V6. and yes 4 speed auto in mine. Really nice tranny, for an auto it actually hasn't really pissed me off yet by being in the wrong gear. I still kind of want a manual but I drive a 10 speed all day so its nice not to have to shift anymore on the way home.

No, I was joking about the monte because you wanted the 350 and a manual...It had what, a 305?

In the mid 80s, there was a selection of v-6s available, the most popular being the ones I mentioned...
