    MLAHAHAHAHA!

    That should been my whole list, save the last two cars.

    I have never liked imports, and have been a bit of a bigot about it, but now I love love love this little car.

    I'm sold - I didn't know what I was talking about.

    Now that's what I'm looking for! a fellow GL owner. See guys, Subaru DID actually sell a few cars before the Impreza WRX!

    I just hope the WRX treats me as well as my GL's did, I'll be happy with half of the reliability of those cars.

    A good list. I'd take any of your fun cars. Interesting that you categorized the 325i in the pod/crap section.

    Yeah, I left those off my list. My cars (previous page), all sports cars or sedans. My wife's cars: a dreary succession of barges and that's how she likes 'em. Our automotive tastes diverge wildly and no amount of coaxing on my part ever puts something exciting in her 1/2 of the garage. Here's her list: AMC Hornet, Dodge Van (1979 monstrosity - thick rugs, refrigerator, 8-track, etc.), Mercury Topaz, Ford Aerostar, Honda Civic (the only time I swayed her), Kia Sportage, Honda CRV and just got her a '99 Chrysler Town and Country. Wheh.

    Hey Steve,

    Yeah the 325 was a commuting pod...and not for long. It was not a very reliable car at all. I traded it in on the Geo ( salesman though I was completely nuts ) because at the time I was commuting 120+ miles a day and needed the best fuel ecnonmy I could find. It was really bizarre going from driving the Geo for commuting and then jumping in the TTZ after work...from model T performance to Space shuttle thrust.

    My wife has always been a sports car fiend..thats how we met! She parked next to my 928 one day in her '93 MR2 Turbo and it was love at first sight ( for the car..wife took a little longer ). She drive the max now. We had to sell her MR2 when she got pregnant and couldnt fit in the car anymore, that was a sad day. Plus having two 2seat sports cars doesnt work for a family. She has "forced" me to upgrade the max..its a work in progress and she is clamoring for a supercharger on it...we are like two peas in a pod when it comes to cars! ..Now If I could only get her to love fishing...
