Let's keep this to privately owned 4 wheeled passenger vehicles for personal use - cars, trucks, SUVs. Starting in 1987 I've owned 34 vehicles, almost all jointly with my wife and we've always had at least 2 in the driveway. 8 were brand new. 12 cars, 12 trucks, and 10 SUVs. 23 domestic and 11 foreign, foreign = built off shore. Oldest '68 VW Fastback, newest '16 Silverado. Longest owned current '86 Samurai for 15 years. Smallest motor 1.0L 3cyl Geo Metro, biggest 6.6L Duramax diesel. Interesting stuff when you put it on paper.


86 Samurai 1.3 leftovers
14 RAV4 2.5 5W-20 PP
16 Silverado 1500 4.3, DI, AFM 5W-30 PP

I think about 20 since I started driving in 1959, but that doesn't take into account the many years that I had a dealers license and didn't have a personal car, just drove what was on the lot.

Since 1962, seems like to the best of my recollection, 26 cars and trucks and maybe a similar number of motorcycles ... That is personally owned, not in conjunction with anyone else laugh

I either get attached to them and they stay for long periods, or they go relatively quickly ... Longest owned was my Dad's 1962 F-100 that I got from him and rebuilt after it was wrecked under him (not his fault) - had that for over 30 years. Shortest was prolly the 1967 Beetle 1 year and 1974 Beetle - 2 years.

The ones I have owned the longest (or run the hardest) either ran many 100,000's miles; or had engine swaps and build-ups do to racing. So the weak points were discovered and well known, or they got totalled and were hauled off.

Smallest 1,600 cc, largest 464 ci laugh

For motorcycles, smallest was 90 cc, biggest is 1,200 cc laugh

Formerly in marine engineering. In an earlier life I owned my own petroleum tank truck, and hauled for the majors and independent's.

Assuming that leasing means ownership... 15 since 1996.

5 have been new (3 of these leased)

6 FWD, 5 RWD, 2 4WD, 2 AWD

11 auto trans, 4 manual trans

Smallest engine: 1.6L. Largest engine: 5.7L

Oldest: 1981. Newest: 2018.

1 assembled in Europe, 1 assembled in Japan, 2 assembled in Mexico, 3 assembled in Canada, 8 assembled in USA

Number of time an oil change wasn't done by me: 1 (one of the leased cars had a recall and I had a free oil change for it)
