In order since I got my license in 1992:

1982 Dodge Omni (first car, had for 3 years and sold)
1981 Chevy Citation (hand me down from parents, was donated to charity)
1987 Chevy Caprice Classic wagon (still have)
1968 Ford Mustang coupe (still have, car in sig)
1997 Toyota Camry (still have, current everyday driver)
1968 Ford Mustang coupe (parts car, hull scraped)
1983 Oldsmobile 98 Regency (parts car, hull scraped)

That's really only 4 vehicles in 16 years of having a license since the 2 parts cars don't count as "drivers", plus the 68 in my sig wasn't ever meant for an everyday driver either. I keep my everyday cars for as long as possible, I don't trade or switch cars often like others. My current driver, Camry, I plan on running into the ground before getting a replacement.

After this I pretty much drove my wife's cast off's when we traded the Tbird for a 95 Windstar which was a 89 Jeep Cheroke, then the Windstar after it was a POS.

Now I'm driving a 03 Subie Legacy wagon.

I've been driving for 2.5 years now. Got my license in 2006.

88 Subaru DL wagon
91 Ford Explorer (Two toner after my sister wrecked the front end, pull and save came to the rescue)
79 F-350 (Overheated and seized, they blame me)
79 F-250 (Jumped time after a very needed tune-up and I couldn't figure it out, they blamed me)
92 F-150 (I totaled it, they blame me for this one, too)
'69 VW bug (got it running and then the bad gas clogged something up, sold it)
'73 VW super bug (Sold it, was running poorly, didn't really want it to begin with.)
'78 Bronco (We only owned it a week)
'66 Mustang (ran it into a school bus full of children. Again, they blame me)
'66 Mustang (Mistake. Just trying to cut my losses get rid of it now.)
'91 F-250 (I picked it out. Nothing bad has (I haven't) happened to it... yet)
'93 Dodge Caravan (Good little dependable van. I lived in it for a month)
'03 Taurus (Good little dependable car)

That's quite a few cars for 2.5 years of driving, eh?

Wow, considering I've been a licensed driver for over 40 years, I haven't owned too many cars (LOL).

Actually these were mine or cars that I drove daily. There were other "family" vehicles that my wife was the primary driver but the list below were mine. I've owned at least one Mustang every year since 1970. I owned one for 22 years and the shortest I ever owned a Mustang was 4 years.

The 1971 Buick Riviera fluke. I always liked the boat tail look of the 71's and the GS 455 Stage I engine sealed the deal. Bought it used for a good price and it split time with one of my Mustangs for about three years in the late 70's.



1962 Plymouth Fury 318-2V (first car in high school in 1968)
1970 Grabber Mustang 302-2V (first new car in 1970)
1970 Convertible Mustang 428 SCJ
1971 Buick Riviera 455GS Stage I
1990 LX 5.0 (new)
1995 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC
1989 LX 5.0
2003 Mustang Mach 1 (new)
