I liked it fine, but the engine died. 1973 Triumph GT6 Loved: Handling, handing, and did I mention handling? Hated: British cars tend to break. The last straw was when it caught fire. I still own it, though. It sits in my garage waiting for me to restore it or sell it to someone who will. 1984 Chrysler Laser This was the car I drove in the winter because Triumphs don't do well in snow. It wasn't a turbo, but it was still fun to drive for some reason. Great aftermarket sound system. Hated the fact that it did not swerve well enough to avoid that deer. 1993 Chrysler LeBaron Convertible Loved: It was red, I kept it up nicely, and it got a lot of http://www.greatachievements.org/?id=3880 compliments. It was hopelessly underpowered, but it was my first convertible and the beginning of my long love affair with drop top cars. Hated: When it got stolen. 1989 IROC Camaro Black. T-tops. Came with a complimentary mullet. It was silly, but I loved it because it was fast. Torque for days. Hated that it broke down a lot. Transmissions are expensive, ya know? Traded it in when I got married. 1995 Dodge Avenger This was the time I bought a (for me) sensible family car. Loved: Um...it had a lot of trunk space? Hated: Just about everything. It was the merger of cheap from Dodge and Mitsubishi together. Traded it in the day I got divorced and bought... 1998 Mustang Convertible Yay! Back to the wind in my hair! Slowly! It was a V6 so while it was "sporty" it was anything but fast. I worked hard to keep it nice, though, and when I sold it with 100k miles it looked almost new.
2002 Audi TT Convertible Loved: Corners. Going around them fast. The car was so buttoned up in the corners it made up for the fact that a minivan was faster off the line. Whenever I had to drive a loaner it made me miss my little car. Hated: That I had to drive a loaner a lot, because that http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/automobile little car was a money pit. Finally got rid of it when the clutch, gearbox, and flywheel all went at once. Even the service department at the dealer suggested I buy another car rather than fix it. Which gets us to the present... 2014 Mustang V6 Convertible Love: The fact that it is a manual, which are kinda hard to find among V6 'Stangs. 300hp is plenty for me, and the manual makes it fun when needed. It is also very black. No stripes or badges on the side. Just black. With a black top. Tinted windows. So much black. Hate: Depreciation. This was my first ever new car. Didn't want to buy someone else's problems, and was willing to pay extra. I had enough for a big down payment, got the friends and family discount at the dealer, and even got money from my busted Audi. Still, if I traded it in today I'd be upside down. But I'm not gonna do that. Like my last Mustang, I'm going to hang on to this one for years, and keep it looking new as long as possible. 1981 Golf mk1. 1.1 litres of fun. My first car, but she was battered. Dents, a different coloured door and 13 previous owners says it all. Bought because it was expected that I would crash it, but I didn't. It broke. 1986 Vauxhall Astra mk2. 1.4 litres of raw power! A heap o'crap because I couldn't afford anything more. Characterless, soulless, but would do 90 on the motorway, which was novel at the time. 1992 Vauxhall Astra mk3 GSi. 1.8 ooh wow! Why oh why did I buy this after the last one? It always stalled and the engine was way underpowered. 1992 VW Corrado. 1.8. Much, much better. A great car, enough zip around town and on B roads it was legendary. Sadly destroyed when some bastard ran into it and then drove off. 1994 VW Corrado VR6. 2.9. The natural progression. I sank a fuckton of money into this car, changed just about everything, supercharged it, melted a piston, then turbo'd it. It was a total animal. I miss driving it, I don't miss owning it. 2007 BMW 335i. 3.0tt. The current whip. Its nice to drive something modern after all that old stuff. Fast and smooth. 1995 Honda Civic - Got it uber used when I turned 16. Great car. Gave to my brother when he got his license. 2002 Mazda Protege ES 5MT - replaced the Honda with this. Replaced with a new Mazda3 as I wanted some amenities like leather, better ride, etc. 2011 Mazda 3s GT-Tech 6MT - Had it for 2 years as a commuter. Great car but ended up moving
further south while getting a job further north from my old place so commute was 18 miles (45-60 mins in stop&go traffic). Replaced with Volt for HOV Stickers. 2014 Chevy Volt - Amazing car! Never knew an electric car could be this nice or fun to drive. Having left leg withdrawls but more than makes up for HOV access and cutting 30 minutes drive time out of my day every day. 1995 240SX SE 5MT (S14): Bought it as my first car, drove it until it broke down on me one too many times while driving to work. Learned how to drive stick in it, crashed into my first guardrail in it... lots of memories with that thing. Also, it was purple. Which was glorious. Too bad it only ran properly every other Wednesday afternoon. Every other month. During certain seasons. Tl;dr it was a pain in the ass to own, but I loved it anyway. 2012 Honda CR-Z 6MT: Purchased this new after selling the S14, was driving nearly 1,000 miles a month on work travel alone. Zero power, but the electric motor's torque was fun on city streets. 44 MPG was also kinda great. Ended up being t-boned a month or three into ownership, and the car was a total loss; I was in traction for a bit, and essentially had to re-learn how to walk. On the plus side, I survived! Wouldn't be here if I had been in the S14, that thing was a deathtrap... 2010 Infiniti G37XS 7AT: Picked this up as my commuter car a few months after moving to the East Coast. My first automatic, but Beltway traffic is abysmal, and living through my first DC winter (as a SoCal native) was helped a great deal by the AWD. Loving the car- leather seats and satnav are entirely new concepts to me -but looking forward to going back to manual eventually.
