    i don't think many will have a porsche.

    I don't really prefer a make more individual cars. theres no point in listing my car make because you won't have heard of it (it's French), they don't export to the USA.

    63 Ford Falcon (1st car, cost me $200) lol

    Also drove my dad's 67 Plymouth Satellite for a while.

    Yes!!!! But very un-american (it's tiny). But french cars are popular with young people because although the build quality is merely good they are cheap to fix and insure and have good a chassis (good fun to drive and fairly comfortable).

    Actually the GTI's are conisdered classics like this 86-94 205 GTI:

    http://www.sportsvogn.no/images/2002...02/205-gti.jpg

    It's a standard 205 hatch with a 1.9 litre (fast in those days remember) some body kit and alloys and suspension mods. This is actually a modern classic and good ones fetch 2500+ still. It only wiehgs about 850kg remember also.

    The replacement is a bit dull though: (206 GTI 98-present)

    http://www.icetronix.com/images/johns2062large.jpg


    Still i would buy one if i could insure it (they have 180BHP now).


    Anyway i got the smaller (and it can only really carry people under 4ft tall in the back for any distance) 106 a bit like this but without some of the side body kit.

    You should have the Mods edit this so you can vote for more then 1. I realize you can only drive 1 car at a time but some people drive more then 1 like I will be doing.

    I will be driving a BMW X5 for the most part and if my dad is fealing nice he will let me drive his Benz S500.

    Bimmer's car is infinitely cooler than mine, according to him. My will just get me from place to place.


    *Edit* This is what my "crappy" car looks like.

    I drive a '92 BMW 325i. Here's a pic of it after a nice little snow. That explains why it's dirty as hell. Plus I'm lazy and don't feel like washing it during the winter.

    Mods, I have permission to use this photo off that site.

    I drive an '03 Saturn Ion3. I seem to remember this a repeat, but couldn't find anything recently...

    I started on an '85 Ford Escort, '91 Pontiac Transport mini-van, '96 Saturn SL1, drive once a '97 Saturn SL2, and currently my '03 Saturn Ion.

    Whoa....... its weird that I edited my post about my dads old mustang almost exactly the same time Leeloo posted about having a Mustang 1 year apart. What color was it? And was it a convertable?

    BTW, I finally found a car that made my jaw drop. http://nationalvehicles.com/viewlist...sting_id=21005

    I think it is $900,000.

    Reminds me of the Pagoni Zonda, except much more faster. That is one hell of a car though.

    I drive a Black 97 Ford Taurus. It's basically CoasterPhil's with a different looking back end. It's sorta crappy, I have an exhaust leak and my dad has yet to fix it, and it has over 100,000 on it, but it gets me places and still runs pretty well.

    My car two years ago: http://www.pbase.com/image/9990128

    Bone stock (besides K&N filter) '95 Ford Contour. 2.5L V6 180hp. Nothing spectacular, but it runs, and gets me where I need to go, and it's the first car I've owned myself.

    I'm quite dissapointed that Toyota didn't make it onto your list.

    Anyways, my first car was an '88 Olds Cutlass Supreme. I drove that til it died, bless it's heart. I then got my new "er" car. I'm now driving a '95 Toyota Avalon and it'd be hard to go back to anything less. My car's got 210,000 and going strong. I hoping to buy something newer towards the end of summer.

    Although I don't drive yet, I would want to get any kind of hybrid Japanese car, like a Toyota Prius. I have a friend who has one, she says she hasn't had any maintenance problems with it, they run great, plus, of course, it gets excellent fuel economy. It is Toyota that makes the Prius, right?

    yup, the 2004 is even more efficient than the 2002 hybrid they had out. not only that but its quicker too. i recently read an article on it. i'm very impressed with the technology put into the car, but they seem like so much extra work.
