    Re: How many cars have you owned (and what were they)?

    My list is quite short:

    1966 Ford Fairlane 500
    1975 Fiat X 1/9
    1973 Fiat 128SL Coupe
    1974 Fiat X 1/9
    1974 Chevy G-20 Van
    1988 Ford Econoline E-350 Club Wagon XL Extended Van
    1988 Ford Taurus L
    1986 Honda Civic CRX Si
    1991 Honda Civic CRX Si
    2007 Volkswagen GTI

    I kept the '74 Fiat for 12 years, and the '91 Honda for 9. The VW was the only one I ever purchased new; the Fairlane was purchased new by my dad, but it wasn't new by the time it made its way down to me.

    It never ceases to amaze me that eople can not only remember all the cars/bikes they have owned but can even remember the year of manufacture. I've even know some who can rattle off all the registration numbers. :

    I can only remember owning;

    Renault Dauphine.
    850 Mini X 2. (Modified.)
    998 Mini Cooper. (Modified.)
    Wolsely Hornet. (Modified.)
    Austin 1300. (Modified.)
    Opel Manta Berlinetta. (One of my favourite cars.)
    Ford Capri 1.6ltr. (Modified.)
    Triumph 2000. (Eeuucchhh! hated it traded it same day.)
    Fiat 1100D.
    Daimler Sovereign 4.2ltr
    Opel Rekord.
    Vauxhall Cavalier SRi Auto.
    VW Scirocco Scala Auto. (Another great favourite.)
    Toyota Carina SE Auto. (My current car.)

    There may have been others, jeez, it's taken me half an hour to remember this lot.
