Good God where to start?

First car i had was a 1950 plymouth special deluxe that i was going to hot rod but never got around to it
Second was a 1984 jeep cherokee i got for 200 dollars(which can also be seen in this photo)

Then i had a 1989 Accord(I freaking LOVED that car, drove like it was on rails then someone trashed it)

next was a 1989 Chevrolet astro

after that was a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee that was rear ended by a semi truck

then i got a 1985 chevrolet citation(couldn't find a bigger pic, srry)

Then there was the 1995 Mazda 626 ES(I supercharged it :D )

One day driving down the road the mazda blew a wrist pin, I drove it to my house,pulled the supercharger and the megasquirt,Put all the original parts back on it and drove it to a dealer as a trade in(they were giving out the max value on any car you traded in no matter how bad it was beaten up), So i did just that and traded in for a:
2004 VW GTI which i got raped on when i bought it, but loved it just the same

I had that car to within 6 payments of being mine and i lost my job, car was repoed and they tacked 4 grand in fees on it.....so i took em to court and got rid of the debt.

I then found myself driving my parents 1992 honda accord(In Technicolor!), which may as well be mine as i pay for everything on it

Then lo and behold, the euro bug got me again and i bought a dilapidated 1983 scirocco wolfsburg edition for a measly 200 dollars.
Which now runs and drives :D

I just got my hire date for the factory i was working at as a temp through an agency and plan on buying a nice e39 M5(failing that a 540I sport with the 6 speed manual) :D, already got 3 grand set aside for it.

Civic was very sexy!

And so Im not breaking the rules:

1st car, 19?? CRX, was a project me and my dad/buddies started on when I was 14.

It was never a looker but I was reliable and would scoot.

68 Galaxie.  Was mostly my dads but It was my school car.  Currently lives in Oakland CA, where I was born.

This one is of my 78 Bronco with a swapped 327/Holley everything.  Had an 87 Eddie B edition after this one, but sadly have no pics of it on my new phone.

Had nothing but gas guzzlers at the time, so I opted for a 250 as my first bike.

This was what my old Datsun pickup looked like just before I gave it to my mom.

300zx gs.  Fast. Sexy. Loved it. Flooded.

Also still have this 240 with an ls1 work in progress.  Not much to look at for the moment and has been sitting at the local shop for some time.

My beloved EG 4dr.  B-series madness right hurr

Had an 09 Mitsu GT Spyder. (not my pic obviously)  See "Post Your Wrecks" for this one's ending.

Not pictured are 5-10 assorted CRX's and Civics used for parts and play.  Will post a massive junk Honda thread one day lol.

First car was a 91 escort.  Got rid of it after I blew 3rd gear out of the side of the trans case.  This pic is from right after an 85 year old man in an Astro van backed into me and shattered the bumper/grill:




Next was a 90 Mustang notch.  306, ported stock heads, Trickflow cam, bolt ons, gear, exhaust, etc.  It was badass for a 16 year old kid:




Then I got a 99 Camaro Z/28.  6-speed with nothing more than a lid.  Black leather, CD, t-tops, 6-speed, big pimpin for a 17 year old:




Then I bought this CRX as a daily driver.  5-speed, Sony xplod subs, fart can, etc.  Originally yellow and rattle canned flat black:






Owned this before the CRX, but I'm too lazy to scroll up and add this in above the CRX's pics.  76 Dodge M880 with bone stock suspension and 40x17" tires on 16.5" rims.  Gangster.




Traded the 99 Camaro for an 89 Mustang hatch.  306, hogged out Windsor Sr. heads, NX plate kit, C4, built 8.8, yadda yadda.  High 10 second car.  Had this my senior year of High School:






Sold the Mustang, bought an 01 Firebird Formula.  Did headers, y-pipe, cutout, Magic Stick 3 cam, lid, th400 trans with reverse-manual, etc.  Very fun car.  Again, black leather, t-tops, CD player, and it sounded sick;






(Had a Hurst QuarterStick shifter with the th400 trans swap)


Sold the Firebird, bought a 96 Cobra.  Twin turbo, built 4 valve motor, c4 trans, etc.  Most fun car to date...Drove almost like stock until the turbos spooled up.  The car could roast the tires at ANY speed on the street:






Then this past Spring, I got rid of that cobra for this one.  10-point cage, chute, full suspension, big-block Chevy, etc.  It hasn't run yet, but it should be disgusting:








I've had a few other vehicles in between, but this is the jiist of it.

1988 Buick LeSabre- Black with a red door (my very first car) Sold the car to my parents friends who blew up a brand new transmission within a year of having it.
1989 Buick LeSabre- Old lady died down the road and we bought it from her estate in 2000 it only had ~60k on it (currently my winter beater)

1995 Dodge Avenger- Parents bought it from my now sister in law, mother drove it for a few weeks decided she wanted the buick so i traded her. First decent car i ever had. 2.5L v6 that i thought was quick. Put a drop in k&n and a flowmaster muffler in it and i thought i gained 20 hp  :o It wasnt the best car ever but it was one of the best conditioned avengers i have ever seen.

1992 Dodge Stealth R/T TT- Sadly it got too expensive to maintain. Bought it for 4300 with 92k on the clock and sold it 3 years later for 6k with 135k even after the expensive mods where taken out and sold :) I miss this car

2000 Chevy Camaro Z28- Picked it up with 36k and have put less than 20k miles on it in the 3 years i have owned it. Still pretty slow, hopefully should dyno at ~380-400 rwhp through a 3600 rpm stall

Oh my...
Listed in order of purchase, many overlapped.

1st car was a VW Golf '75, bright yellow. Flared fenders, kamai spoiler etc. Don't think any single thing was stock except parts of the floor. It was actually pretty cool :lol: Don't have pics, sold it when I was 15, 15 years ago almost.

2nd was a 1987 320i, diamond black.

3rd was a 1988 320ik, diamond black and shadowline. Broke many land speed records :mrgreen:

5th was a 1984 320i with a 323i engine, perfect solid black paint. At the time I hated the crome bumpers and a pre 88 look though so I sold it.


6th was 1987 CitroŽn BX 16RS, a pretty shitty beater I had for a while when in college

7th was a 1990 BMW 318is, loved that thing. Had it for three years, think that is my personal best.


8th was a 1990 BMW 318is, guy who bought it built a race car out of it and won the BMW Cup.


9th was a 1988 Audi 100 Avant 2.3 Sport, first wagon. Must have been 7-8 years ago.


10th was 1988 SAAB 900 Aero, had a lot of goodies but never quite ran right.

13th was a 1999 BMW 320iAT


14th was a 1998(?) Ford Mondeo 2.0 Wagon


15th was 1984 Audi 100
see above

16th was 1987 BMW 325iM, still beats myself for selling it.



17th was 1996 Chrysler Grand Voyager 3.3


18th was 1992 BMW 320i sedan, was a trade in for the M3.


19th was a 1996 Chrysler Grand Voyager 3.3

20th was a 1990 BMW M3, purdiest car I've had I think.


21st was a 1987 Audi 1,8S (red), with injection engine and converted for E85. Still sits outside, pic further below.

Fuck I'm lost in the numbering...

22nd was a 1987 Audi 1,8S (white) parts car.

23rd was a BMW M3, the one I still have.


24th was a 1988 BMW 325i Touring


25th was a 2001 Chrysler Grand Voyager 3.3, still have but trying to sell it.


26th was a Łber cool 1968 BMW 1600-2, that never had an engine

28th was a 2006 Volvo V70 D5 M6 Ocean Race that I still have.

I've only had three cars. My first ride was a 1989 Toyota Tercel I got for free from a family friend.



I was going to BOCES at the time, and did the bodywork, and repainted it. Aside from it being balls slow, it was great on gas, and MINT on the inside. Also, this was a Canadididididuh car, the speedo and odometer was in KMs. Eventually threw a rod, and sold it to a guy for $350, back in 2006. He turned it into an enduro car, kept my paint job, and the car STILL sees races to this day. :yup:

Next car was my 1995 Dodge Intrepid. Had the smaller (more reliable) 3.3L OHV V6. Car was a trooper, great on gas, huge inside, and was very reliable in my ownership.




I only put an intake on the car:


Then some douchenozzle hit me on the highway. :(





The guy clipped my left rear quarter panel, sent me into a fishtail, I couldn't recover and slammed into the rightside guardrail at +70mph, bounched back into traffic, 360*d, and smacked the guardrail once more. That day sucked. :(

Then of course, I bought my 2003 Pontiac Grand Am GT:

Walking down memory lane...  :'(  In order of the latest car owned.

2008 Infiniti M45, still the best all around car I have owned.  Traded in for the M5.  M5 beats it in performance but as far as reliability and comfort the Infiniti has BMW beat.


2002 Porsche Boxster S- traded in for a Jeep Wrangler 4 door. No regrets, the Jeep is tons of fun.


2008 Ninja 250- bought it to practice and ride around as a starter bike.  Stayed up on it once, dropped it more than 5.  I just got tired of learning LOL



2010 Daytona 675 Triple SE.  Bought this as a bday gift for my bf (now fiance).  Ended up not wanting to ride much.  I should know better than to buy a person who had a near death experience on a sportbike a fast bike. LOL


1997 Mustang Cobra - got to a point where we never drove it anymore and before we bought a bigger garage, we didn't have room to park any more cars it was sitting in storage most of the time.  I still have fond memories of the car.  Also, I can see how I have always had this weird thing with matching colors and having some sort of theme (could it be my OCD kicks in when deciding on a car lol)


White Mustang theme... LOL 1969 Mustang, went to the dear ex-husband



1970 Charger 440/6 - also went to the dear ex



We also briefly had a 65 mustang that we bought from a deployed soldier.  Ended up being such a POS we ended up selling it back to him when he got back.  Did not make the neighbors very happy... LOL

1987 Cadillac Sedan DeVille, 4.1 litre of DOOM
Bought it for $500, drove it until my parents decided to retire the mini van, and I sold it for $1,200.


1991 Pontiac Trans Sport, 3.1 V6
It was in better shape and more reliable than that piece of shit caddy. Made more practical sense... but holy balls was it so NOT cool to drive a mini van in high school.


1995 Chevrolet Monte Carlo LS, 3.1 V6
My parents both leased new vehicles and decided to give me the Monte as a high school graduation gift, since I had done so much work on it (suspension, brakes, starter, alternator, etc). Needless to say, I was delighted. I loved this car. Sold the Trans Sport for $800.


1996 Chevrolet Beretta, 3.1 V6
When I bought my Cutlass, I sold the Monte to help fund that... so I bought this Beretta for $500 as my winter beater. Aside from its looks, it was actually a decent car!


1977 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Brougham, SBC 350 V8
I came home from work one day and my dad told me about this "cool Cutlass" for sale down the road. We went and looked at it, and I fell in love. I'd always wanted an old school rear wheel drive car with a V8. The real Muscle Cars were too far out of reach price wise, and I don't ever remember seeing one of these at a car show, so the gears started turning... and I ended up selling the Monte Carlo and buying this. I LOVED this car. It was slow, but so much fun to drive and it got a LOT of looks and thumbs ups in traffic.


1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, 3.1 V6
A friend's parents decided to sell everything they owned and move back to Singapore, so I figured now was a good time to upgrade my winter beater, and bought this for $1,500. Even though it was in pretty good condition, it gave me more shit than any other car I've ever owned. I just wasn't cared for by previous owners. Even so, I hydrolocked the damned thing and after draining out the water, it gave me two more years of service before I sold it.


1999 Oldsmobile Aurora, 4.0 V8
I bought this to replace my 96 Cutlass, but it ended up being a complete lemon so we nullified the deal. I owned it for 24 hours.


2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport, 4.0 I6
I've always really liked these, even before I knew anything about them. We've had several come and go at the dealership, but this one was just too nice to pass up. Obviously it's changed a lot since I bought it... And yes, I actually sold both of my Cutlasses to buy this.


1985 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale, 5.7 Diesel V8
I paid $200 for this to turn it into a demo derby car, but it never happened thanks to the fact that the motor I bought for it was frozen up - the seller lied to me. The diesel was blown up so there was no chance of using that.


1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, 3.1 V6
Another trade in at the dealership. We flipped this one upside down out front as a promotional gimmick for a sale we were doing, i bought it afterward for $200 in hopes to run it in the Trailer Races at the local race track. Turns out the engine was too fucked to save so i scrapped it and got my money back.


1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, 3.1 V6
Yet another trade in, gave the owner $200 and they sold it to me for $100 - same purpose, to run it in the trailer races. I couldn't even get anyone to help me out with a trailer or anything, so I ended up scrapping this one as well, this time I made an extra $100.


1995 Chevrolet Silverado 1500W/T, 4.3 V6
FINALLY, another trade in and this time they just signed the title over to me with no money changing hands AND gave me permission to work on it at the dealership. After all those previous attempts, it finally happened. Awesome.
