Hey, I only purchase cars that interest me. Luxurious, fast, high mileage... Always unique in some way.

I'm currently mulling some very bad decisions... Two British, one Italian. Which will I pick?

I think I saw this before, so:
- 1983 Zastava 101 (my first car). 1,100ccm FIAT derived engine. Predecessor of YUGO and much better built than YUGO. When I sold it, it broke in half in two weeks (honestly did not know it will do it).
-1988 BMW 318i with M10 engine (never, never had single issue except rpm needle would stop working out of nowhere. Slam with fist on the dash would fix it, every time).
- 1988 OPEL Ascona 2.0 8V Irmscher. (Tuned up version of brilliant 2.0 engine. However, rest of the car suffered from GM approach in bushiness that was: let's make product as cheap as possible. Good thing was that as it was aging it was going faster. Bad thing: it was because it was lighter due to rust).
- 1991 BMW 520i (never had issues. Sold it in 2004 and guy told me he had some issues around 450k km with electronics).
- 1996 OPEL Vectra B 2.0 16V (continuation of Cosworth derived 2.0 16V from Vectra A. Excellent engine, not so excellent gearing. Rest of the car was like other OPEL products from that period, mediocre at best).
- 1999 Lancia Lybra 2.4 JTD (absolute "killer" on hwy. 5cyl common rail diesel. At that time except BMW diesels, no diesel could keep up with it. Bad thing was that engine was transverse and heavy, so dynamic in curves was not the best. No issues ever. Father lend it one day as he really loved to drive that car, and went to weekend house. There was landslide in front of him and hit huge rock with right side of a vehicle. Shock absorber was cut in half like razor cut it. Wheel with axle and all suspension parts was found 50m away. Car actually stayed on straight line without wearing off to another lane or cliff on his side. I contribute that too to excellent winter tires it had, GY Ultra grip 6).
- 1999 Mazda Millenia 2.5 V6 (got it when I moved to US. Purchased car in 2006 with 116k. Drove it until it had 250k. Had issue with ignition, and one tensioner needed to be replaced after timing belt replacement. Other than that, OK vehicle. Not more, not less).
- 2004 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado 3.0 D-4D (in Bosnia) (Got it to access some mountain parts in Bosnia that are really challenging to access. In winter those parts are accessed by military with helicopters to deliver food or provide healthcare. Great off road vehicle. Horrible brakes, suspension, dynamic capabilities and engine is always iffy. Still own it, but not driven a lot.).
- 2005 VW Passat B5.5 (except wheel bearing issue at 40k, never had issue. Traded in with I think with 126k).
- 2007 Skoda Octavia 1.9tdi (car to drive at my home in Bosnia). (Bought brand new. Since I have business there piled up miles very fast by numerous people. Traded in in 2011 with 330k km. Had failed turbo due to bad diesel at Slovenian fuel station).
- 2009 BMW 525d E61 (in Bosnia) (driven by me or my brother there. Racked up 375k km before bad grounding burned car. Car was bought new. BMW dealer in Italy put in computer that grounding was changed per BMW recall. It never was as investigation determined after car burned. Other than that, no issues).
- 2010 VW CC 2.0T DSG (nice car, great MPG, pretty fast, traded in for BMW X5 with 116k. Never had issue except bad wire connection in trunk so trunk could not be opened with button inside. VW fixed it for free).
- 2011 Skoda Octavia 1.9tdi (brand new in Bosnia). (Same, for business. Traded in with 450k km. Had two flywheels replaced. But except me and my brother, 11 other people drove that car, so God knows how it was abused).
- 2011 VW Tiguan 2.0T (Here in US). (Wife's car, makes 5k in a year. No issues. Great in snow. Probably will stay in our ownership for next 5+ years).
- 2012 Peugeot 508 2.2 hdi GT (In Bosnia) (Also for business, but driven by me or my brother. OK car, great engine, super economical. However, huge torque steer due to ridiculous torque on FWD car).
- 2013 BMW X5 3.5d (here in US) (probably one of my favorite vehicles I owned. Great driving capabilities for 5,200lbs SUV. However, emission system was iffy (as is on all first gen SCR vehicles. BMW super helpful. I made some 100k in that car and total cost for me was $1,420 when it comes to emissions. Other than that only regular maintenance. If CO would allow SCR delete I would definiately keep that car).
- 2015 Toyota Sienna (here in US) (great vehicle for family needs. Horrible built quality, brake quality, and generally flimsiness of vehicle. Second and most definiately last Toyota in my garage).

For business purposes in Bosnia had numerous VW, Peugeot, Renault, Ford, Fiat and Opel small delivery vehicles. They were always very robust. Also had several Mercedes delivery vans such as Sprinter. OK, but not as reliable as smaller delivery vehicles. Switched to VW transporter vans. They proved great.

Hey, I only purchase cars that interest me. Luxurious, fast, high mileage... Always unique in some way.

I'm currently mulling some very bad decisions... Two British, one Italian. Which will I pick?

British or Italian. That depends. Either may break your heart or anger you.

I got quite the chuckle when you commented that I was thrifty. I always heard others say “what, another new car?”

But after viewing that monstrous list above I guess it’s all relative.

Crikey atokovi, looks like you had a different car every week.

wtd: At an early stage of my life I wanted an SS454 Monte Carlo (same generation as in your picture). I actually remember looking at a new car brochure every night in my bedroom when I was still in high school.

edyvw: Not surprised by your choices (except for the Sienna). I always though the Mazda Millenia was a good looking car. They still look good when I see one.

antikovi: You are older than I thought. WTH is with your list?! Is there a 1:1 correspondence with girlfriends? :-) Careful in the Smart car. You could die in that thing if you get hit by a bicyclist!

Naw, I got a license. And that Smart is as safe as most other small cars with its Tridon safety cell.

blkstanger, that looks awesome! Judging from the cars in the background that looks like the early '70s....?

Anyway, your homework assignment is incomplete. You have 42 more to go. Pictures might get you extra credit.

I would love to own a first generation SS454 Monte Carlo but they are out of my price range these days. I didn't even know they made one back in 87 when I bought mine and it wasn't until I got the internet in about 1999 did I discover they made them.

Yes, and my second and current "bumper boobs" TR6 is ~200 commissions numbers from my first ever car which my Father and I did a minor rehab on.

Probably made within 3 or 4 of days of each other. My '71 was the last of the high compression motors. I did put a '72+ intake manifold on it, which breathed much better than the earlier ones.
