This is always a fun topic to see what people own/have owned. I'll start it off:

Cars owned in the past:
1980 Datsun Pickup - first beater car, learned to heel and toe & double clutch
1987 CRX Si - first 'nice' car
1989 Honda Civic LX - wife's car
1976 Alfa Spider - first Alfa
1991 164L - purchased new, traded the Spider on it

Cars owned presently:
1973 GTV - owned for 11 years now, will never sell it
1996 VW Passat GLX Wagon - the family truckster
2002 Mazda P5 - stop gap until new Alfas return in 2007
2007 157 GTA Sportwagon


'73 GTV - Owned 24 years
