    1974 BMW 2002 (parents' car)
    1978 Chevy Caprice Estate wagon (parents' car)
    1981 Buick Skylark Limited (parents' car which I inherited through/after college)
    1983 Subaru GL10 (parents' car. non-AWD, no turbo, but a trick all-digital dash)
    1986 Nissan Sentra
    1987 Suzuki GSXR750 (bike)
    1991 Mazda 323se
    1993 Suzuki Katana 600 (bike)
    1997 Subaru Legacy Outback*
    2000 Crownline 210CCR (boat)*
    2002 Subaru Impreza WRX*

    *Currently own

    No thefts/accidents in any case. By far the worst vehicle was the Buick Skylark. By the time I got rid of it, it had a hole in the driver's floorboard, was rusting, wouldn't take any gas without stalling until completely warmed up, had a heater core replaced, serious engine work, and I forget what else, but it turned into a POS. Didn't even have 100k on it when I dumped it.

    1966 Mustang convertible (also rangoon red, 4 speed, 289, tan top)

    1981 Corvette (blue, looked good, slower than sheeot, sold my '88 GT for this car..big mistake!!!)
    1988 VW golf (gold, slow..owned this one at the same time as the vette for commuting to school)
    1990 Mustang LX 5.0 (white, fast..cheap.. )
    1989 Saleen Mustang (until the rex, my favorite car of all time. black with gold pin stripes, 3.55 gears, Pro 5.0 shifter..plenty fast and plenty fun, sold it to buy a house ) I miss my saleen to this day...
    1991 Isuzu Impulse (I owned 3 of these at one time: a blue one, a black one (which was given to me in 1999 as a college graduation present) and a red one we drove to Ohio to get. My first taste of AWD and turbo goodness.

    2001 Yamaha r6 ( bought it to commute on and race a little bit..fun, fast and cheap..sold it during my divorce)
    1988 Mazda RX-7 (bought this when I had to sell the 300 ZX because of my divorce..steenking women!!!)
    1988 Mitsubishi Montero (commuter, ugly, piece..you get the point)
    2003 Nissan Sentra Spec V (when finances started getting better, I bought the best car I could afford..still love that car..kind of miss it)
    1991 Suzuki GS500 (racebike..sold to finance a new R6..due to be here in January..racing rules!!!)
    2003 Subaru WRX- the absolute height of car ownership for me..I owe a crapload on it and had to finance negative equity from the spec-v..I couldn't care less..best car I have owned by far and the most fun..this one will stay in the stable for good!!

    ....everyone is going to think this is weird

    first car- 1993 bmw 318is with upgrades
    Second car- 1996 BMW M3- Imported Euro motor with individual throttle bodies, 11.3-1 compression, hand built motor. 6 speed trans, carbon kevlar clutch, ltw flywheel, intake, exhaust, tv dvd...the works..euro gauge cluster...about 20g's under the hood...imagine if i put that into a wrx instead?
    reason for selling? because i needed a car that people wouldnt beat up at college, i could drive in the winter etc. do i miss my m3? Every day!

    How much hp do you think the M3 was putting down at the wheels?

    im not too sure

    but the viper gts i was racing sure was shocked when i pulled on him ON THE HIGHWAY

    top speed was 204mph
    i've never driven a car like it. the power would come on at 3k rpms...and instead of dying out like the US motor, it gained until you hit a rev limiter. not that i ever did...i doubt there even was a rev limiter...that thing reved over 8200...pretty good for an old 6 cyl.

    here are some older pics...

    if you look under the hood it says it all

    i have better pics with silver ssr's and hids...oh well

    It's a lovely car to be sure, but a Euro-motor E36 M3 pulling on a Viper? I have to admit to a little skepticism...

    yeah it happened...

    when the car was gutted, it was damn fast. was it stock? nope. was i running higher octane gas? yes...it was a race motor.oh well the top speed is theoretical. i could cruise at 90 at about 2500-2700 rpms in sixth...great gas mileage. the car had no AC, no abs, no traction control. it was very bare. thus the reason i had to get rid of it to drive something much more...economical for college. plus the bills for parts and service were...VERY high. in that aspect im glad i got rid of it.
