Ooh, this is a fun one. Some of you have had some very cool cars through the years.
  1. 2002 Dodge Intrepid ES - My first car, bought in 2005 with money from working starting at 14, now Snakeskin Green! This car will never leave my ownership.
  2. 1990 Chevy Cavalier Coupe - my first girlfriend's father gave it to me after it had sat at their house for years. I fixed it up a bit, cleaned it up a lot, and got it running well, but it had some rust issues that kept me from doing anything more to it or ever driving it on a public road. Sold it for $80 to a couple of hillbillies.
  3. 1997 Ford Taurus GL - this belonged to my father, but he started driving his truck all the time and gave it to me to drive in the winter and in college. I drove it for part of college, put SHO leather seats in it, then my father briefly needed it back right around when my grandfather gave me his Oldsmobile. Eventually it was sold for scrap because it was so rusty from sitting all the time.
  4. 1974 Dodge Dart Swinger - I bought this with my dad, father/son project for a while. Sold in 2017.
  5. 2001 Dodge Intrepid SE - I paid $300 for it, the owner thought it needed a new engine, it didn't. I drove it as a daily summer beater, then my wife drove it daily when we first moved in together. Sold it to a Club Member's daughter when I bought the first Special and my wife started driving the Concorde.
  6. 1969 Dodge Coronet Coupe - I bought this in college because it was cheap and my dream muscle-era car. I still own it and want to restore it someday, but it needs a lot of work.
  7. 1999 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight LS - my grandfather gave this to me after he bought a Cadillac. I drove this for the rest of college after the Taurus. I loved this car. Totaled when somebody drove into my wife when she was borrowing it. I was very sad when it was hauled away.
  8. 2001 Chrysler Concorde LXi - my grandfather bought this for me with the proceeds from the totaled Eighty Eight (yes, I was a lucky kid, my grandfather was good to me). I loved this car, I drove it until I bought my first Special, then I gave it to my wife. We sold it to her sister when it started to rust and I found the Pro Am - her sister totaled it after 3 months.
  9. 2004 Chrysler 300M Special - I bought this from a Club Member, did a ton of maintenance to it, then sold it to a Club Member in 2020 after I'd put 66k miles on it.
  10. 2002 Chrysler 300M Pro Am - I bought this for my wife, it had had the engine harness hacked up, but I fixed that. She drove it for years, we eventually sold it to a Club Member who later bought my first Special.
  11. 1969 Plymouth Satellite Station Wagon - bought it for myself as a gift for graduating from law school. Currently disassembled and in the process of swapping a G3 Hemi from a 2013 Ram into it.
  12. 2009 Dodge Ram SLT - my father left me his Ram when he passed away. Still my workhorse.
  13. 2017 Ford Fusion Energi - my wife's DD, bought for the MPGs. Great car so far.
  14. 2004 Chrysler 300M Special - my current DD, bought from a Club Member because it was so rust free. My eye wanders a lot thinking of a new DD, but there is very little I like as much as I like the LH cars, plus I know how to fix them and have the support of this Club to do so.

Ok. I'll play :)
Considering my age I haven't owned that many vehicles. I've always bought nice, privately owned cars. I've always paid cash and never owed a dime on any vehicle. I've done 90% of repairs and upkeep myself but now I just do the routine maintenance myself as I'm old and lazy :)

1967 Ford LTD bought used. My first car. I didn't buy my first car until I could pay cash for it hence I was 18 before my first car.
1969 Chevelle 2 door hardtop bought used. 350 auto with buckets. Nice car. Sold it at a profit 3 years later.
1970 Ford LTD Brougham bought used. Had the police interceptor package (429 high compression big block, H.D. suspension with huge front and rear sway bars, HD cooling, 410 posi). Found this sitting in the back of a Ford dealer lot. Nobody wanted to buy it as it had high mileage and didn't have AC. I contacted the owner (a border customs broker who drove it on the hwy every day to Toronto airport) and bought it from him. Fastest car I ever owned except for my hot rod truck. . Stored during winters. Owned for about 10 years.
1968 Dodge Monaco bought used. Winter driver for 2 years
1975 Pontiac Gran Prix . 455 Big Block fully loaded. I bought this 6 months old. It was my summer daily driver, stored for winters. Nice car. I owned it for 30 years. Sold it for more than I paid for it.
1975 Mercury Grand Marquis bought used from a local wrecking yard. Had high mileage. Fully loaded with 460 engine and leather. Nice car but a pig on gas and got rusty fast. Winter driver for 5 years and towed my trailer with snowmobliles during winter.
1975 Chev Caprice bought used from a friend. Fully loaded.My wife's summer driver, our winter driver. Rusty when I bought it but drove it for 7years.
1977 Chev Monte Carlo. Fully loaded. Bought off of a friend. Wife's daily driver. Nice car. Scrapped after rust out.
1977 Chev Smoothside Shortbox Pickup. I bought it 6 months old from a divorcing couple who needed the cash as they owed most of the money still on the truck. Drove it for 6 months and then did a complete body off resto. 4 inch chop top, lowered suspension, shaved doors, smooth tailgate, custom interior, etc. 350 LT1 turbo 400 with 3500 stall converter, 3.73 Dana posi rear end. First painted in tuxedo black then 5 years later changed to candy-brandywine with flames. Won every car show I ever entered in. Kept for over 30 years. Sold it for what I had into it. Sometimes I still miss it. There are pictures of it somewhere in the forums here.
1980 Olds Regency 98. Bought used. Rare 2 door hardtop. Fully loaded with leather and sunroof. Wife's daily driver and our winter car. Drove it for 10 years.
1985 Olds Delta 88 Brougham. Bought used. Fully loaded 4 door. Wife's daily driver and our winter car. Drove it 8 years
2002 300M
2010 Ford Ranger 4x4
I also owned a 750 Honda and a KZ900 Kawasaki motorcycles each bought new in 1974 and 1976 respectively.
