1.  1981 Toyota - Pick-up
     It was my Dad's household utility pick-up and let me drive it until I could afford my own car

2.  1981 Pontiac - Trans-Am
     Got a L82 from a destroyed 1980 Corvette.
     Rebuilt the engine my sophomore year in HS autoshop and made it a 383 cid
     BorgWarner Super T-10 4sp trans.
     I had lots of fun in HS with this car :D

3.  1957 Ford - Fairlane 2 door coupe (shortest model with B pilars)
     312 cid thunderbird special and three on the tree for the transmission.
     I bought this from a farmer in NE for $150 the last plates on it were 1972.
     I restored it my senior year of HS to original condition.
     I still own this car and have it stored away in a quonset in Nebraska.
     My Dad drives it every once in while for me.

4.  1963 Oldsmobile - Cutlass convertable
     330 cid Olds Rocket engine with a rochester 4 bbl carb and dual exhaust
     It has electric windows, locks, and top.
     I bought it from a farmer in WY back in HS for $200 and still needs restored,
     so its sitting in the quonset.

5.  1946 Dodge - Power Wagon
     Bought it from the same farmer as the Olds Cutlass, but it cost me $500.
     Around 1975 or so the farmer pulled out the old flat head I-6 and
     installed a Chrysler 392 Hemi Fireball :D
     He also took the bed off and put a flat bed on it :'(
     then turned the bed into a trailer :'(
     This is sitting in the quonset also needing to be restored and will prolly
     be the next one I restore.

6.  1981 Saab - 900 Turbo
     My first euro car and I really liked it way better than my Trans-Am.
     Minus the cost for parts.
7.  1985 Toyota - Corrola GTS
     I modded the hell out of this car.  Spent about $15k on the engine + mods.
     Destroyed the engine the 3rd time I ran it at Bandimere.  Turbo + Light
     weight flywheel + MSD soft rev limit ignition + NOS button on the wheel +
     missing second gear = 13,000 rpm explosion and engine pieces flying :'(
8.  1984 Toyota - Celica GTS Notch-back
     I liked this car and was the first car I took out to SCCA autocross events.
     I did a few suspension mods and rebuilt the engine and thats about it.
     I gave this to my little brother for his 16th birthday and he rolled it two
     days later...

9.  1992 Saab - 900 Turbo
     The 16V engine with Bosch electronic FI made it a much better car than my
     first one.  Had to many problems with it though. Plus I hated the understeer.
10. 1991 Acura - Interga GS-R
     Found a Turbo kit for it and did a few other engine mods and decided it would
     be the first and last honda I would own. Besides my lawnmower :D
     I made my brother buy this one from me for $1000, so he would have some respect
     for it, and he never recked it, but then he sold it to one of his friends and
     they totaled it a week after buying it. I didn't cry.

11. 2000 Jeep - Cherokee Sport
     My first SUV and the first day I showed up to work with my friend said nice
     soccor mom car, so after I got a 4" lift was some 31" BFG A/T's I took up him
     for a nice and scarey 4 wheel trail and he decided to retract his comment.
12. 2001 Audi - S4
     The only dream car I could afford ;)  Some day I will get my own Porsche GT2.
     This is one of the best sleeper cars you can buy on the road. I can't wait to do
     more mods to it.
13  2004 VW - Jetta TDI (wifes car)
     I really liked the Jetta, but it was just to small for us with out new addition
     to the family.
14. 2005 VW - Passat Wagon TDI (wifes car)
     Sweet car and I like it a lot more than the Jetta. I am going to do some visual
     mods to it.

1987 BMW 528e
That was the only car I've owned besides my current A4.  I still miss it.
