I drove an 04 Dodge SX.0. Lowered, cold air, exhaust, tinted windows, spoiler, low profiles. Very quick and nice little car, but couldnt go fishin in it. So I traded it for the 03 Jeep.

First car: 1980-something Ford Granada Wagon 'given' to me by my parents. I bought it from my dad for the amount the dealer gave me on trade for my next car, a 1988 Honda CRX:


Then, I had a '93 Honda Del Sol Si:


& an '02 Chevy Silverado:


Not counting my wife's car ('04 Honda CRV) or the POS Ford, my Jeep is the first vehicle I've owned that actually has a back seat

1984 Plymouth Colt Vista (replaced transmission, then totaled it 7 months later)
1968 3/4 ton Chevy truck (miss it, timing chain came off and totaled engine, was traded in for the Cavalier
1985 Chevy Cavalier (donated to Charity after I joined the Navy
1987 Chevy S-10 (sold to one of my recruiters)
1992 Buick Park Ave Ultra (supercharger committed suicide in Richmond, Indiana)
1987 Lincoln Town Car (POS got me from Indiana to Twin Falls ID before quitting on me)
2002 Chevy Impala (traded in for the Jeep)
1986 Suzuki Intruder (good learner bike, learned how all sorts of things can break and how much it costs to fix. Then the engine blew out and I quit fixing it)
2007 Yamaha Vstar 1300T (Love this bike, rode across the country with it, and from CA to WA with it, and still have it in HI)

Thanks, Sinister, now I feel kind of depressed at the level of automotive carnage I've left behind in less than 16 years.

Zipcar.com. I'm not kidding. Been using the service in tandem with my cafe'd out Harley Sportster for about 6 months. It's actually not a bad deal but you do have to change your lifestyle a bit and plan your trips for maximum efficiency. I also intermittently drove my '67 fairlane, but it's more often torn apart in the driveway than drivable. Actually thinking about selling it now that I have the Jeep. Not sure I can afford two money-pits =^D

technically first car I owned is my 65 mercury comet.....still have that.....now I also have the jeep!

Of course there were a number of other vehicles that I drove as a daily driver/paid for but were in my dads name instead of mine....

started with the 86 ford escort....then moved up to a 97 S-10 and then a 2002 pt cruiser with all of the options....before trading it in for the jeep with a few options but nowhere near as many....and I couldn't be happier!
