Y'all:

Apologies in advance if this a re-post. I searched but didn't find anything obvious.

Scott
-------
In chronological order by model year:

1958 Chevrolet Bel Air (given to me by a woman where I worked)
1962 Austin Healey 3000 BT7 (rare triple carb model)
1962 VW bug (my first car, my Mom's old car)
1963 Austin Healey 3000 BJ7 (bought from original owner, eventually sold to Tim Allen!)
1963 Chevrolet Nova (2 door!, a rock solid unibody chassis, I loved this thing, wish I still had it)
1969 Triumph TR6 (crashed and totaled, fortunate to survive)
1971 Triumph TR6 (a highly modified street legal race car, proposed to my future wife in this car!)
1973 Jaguar V12 E-type (4 speed, every man should own a V12, the sounds, the smoothness)
1982 Buick Regal (odd fire V6, the pinnacle of American car junk, eventually gave it away to neighbor's gardener)
^1982 Volvo DL (our first new car, 4-speed w/ overdrive, kid hauling unit, reliable as time, one of the best ever)
^1986 Toyota truck (a tin can death trap, errand runner, chronic head gasket problems)
1988 Pontiac Fiero GT (strong 2.8L motor, twitchy handling Lotus designed suspension, cramped interior)
^1989 Chevrolet Beretta GT (strong 2.8L motor, our commuter)
1991 Ford Taurus SHO (an amazing Q-Ship sleeper, Yamaha DOHC V6 had fantastic valve train sounds!)
^1993 Mazda MPV (kid hauling unit, repeated bad lifters, hopelessly bad transmission, total JUNK, Mazda couldn't fix)
^1995 Nissan Quest XLE (nice kid hauling unit, nice driver, very reliable)
1999 Buick Regal GS (supercharged, strong pulling 3.8L motor, got it after Dad’s passing)
^2000 Dodge Durango SLT Plus 5.9L AWD (snow car, very capable, had a freakishly strong unicorn motor, vehicle was a "stud")
^2000 Ford F-150 XLT 5.4L (a nice highway cruiser, weakest motor I've ever owned)
^2001 Subaru Outback (total JUNK, one major problem after another, Subaru uncooperative)
^*2003 BMW E46 330Ci (balanced and quick, 100% trouble free, one of the best ever, will keep forever)
2005 Chrysler Pacifica Touring (functional, served its purpose, wife wanted it but I hung my head in shame when driving)
^2006 Mercedes Benz C230 Sport (b-day present for wife, far too many mechanical issues, total JUNK, MB uncooperative)
2008 Saab 9-7x 4.2L (surprisingly strong motor, too many repeated little issues)
^*2010 Honda Element SC (our everyday local driver, one of our best cars ever)
^*2011 BMW E90 328i (M-Sport package, a very enjoyable, very capable German machine)
^2015 Ford Focus Titanium (a 3K miles per month commuter, nice car but DCT was JUNK)
^*2016 VW Passat SEL Premium VR6 (our 3K per month commuter, roomiest back seat ever, surprising power)

^ = bought new
* = still own


03 BMW E46 330Ci ZSP (BMW TPT 5W-30)
10 Honda Element SC (Kendall GT1 Max 5W-30)
11 BMW E90 328i M-Sport (BMW TPT 5W-30)
16 VW Passat VR6 3.6L SEL Premium (Euro Castrol 0W-40)

Pete, back in the '80s.... Nice! Certain cars define your life and its trajectory, and in some ways who you are as a person.

Here's my 2003 BMW E46 330Ci. This is my favorite car of them all, and I honestly believe I'll keep it for the rest of my life. Other then the smog test, alignment, and airbag recall guys; no other hands have touched it.

A late 60’s Chevrolet Belair. Bought it knowing it needed work but the work was more than anticipated and the time wasn’t there. Sold it shortly thereafter.

1979 International Scout. 304 V8 with automatic. A real gas guzzler at 10mpg. Put just over 110,000 on it the traded it for the pickup.

1985 Ford Ranger. 2.8V6 4 speed. This was a horrid vehicle. Never ran right when cold. Countless electrical issues. Was in the shop 2-3 times a year for problems. Finally got rid of it after the 4th ECU fried.

1992 Mitsubishi Expo LRV. A practical microvan. The first perfect car I ever owned. The 1.8 four cylinder was a sewing machine. Ended up with just under 300,000 before the transmission went out.

1996 Toyota Tacoma 4wd. 2.7 4 cylinder with automatic. A real workhorse. I would regularly haul 1600 pounds in the back.

2000 Mitsubishi Montero Sport. 3.0 V6 with auto. A real highway cruiser. We went all over the west in this vehicle. Never burned oil.

2017 Mazda CX-5. Our current vehicle. Probably the most comfortable one I’ve owned. Very nice driver. The AWD is seamless. Probably my last vehicle.

I know the feeling. I've often thought of throwing together a list with the recent updates, but it would involve quite a bit of time.

If you say the CX-5 might be your last vehicle, I assuming you're an older gentlemen (I'm 66). I admire your automotive thriftiness.

Yes I am in my senior years now. I have always bought new and run them long. A couple of times circumstances dictated otherwise.

Thanks for a interesting thread.

LOL Good and bad for the spirit. I'm thinking somewhere in the area of 20 or so. I keep them a very long time. I still have one which is over 30 years old. LOL Putting them in chronological order [as I owned them] is what would take the most time. Rattling them off with the help of my wife would be fairly easy. For now I'm going out for a walk.

Happy Easter!
