1983 Buick Regal (not the T-type). I was convinced it was 100% iron. Someone rear ended me one day and their front bumper dropped off while I didn't even sustain a scratch. Had a 1989 Pontiac Sunbird after that and then I ventured out to the import side. Bought a 1995 maxima and it was the 1st car I really loved to drive. I was so impressed by the reliability of the '95 I bought a 2005 maxima. That was a mistake. Transmission problems right out the gate, timing chain tensioner issues, ABS system problems, you name it. Got a 2011 G37xS after that and was happy again. The G was just as reliable as my '95 maxima but grew bored with it and ended up with the 3IS. In love again

My son still drives an '98 A4 1.8T quattro that i bought new. Despite my son's best attempts to alter its sheet metal, it's still alive and kicking!

I think this car's styling was ahead of its time. Still looks modern IMHO.

First car was the 2005 Scion tC. I thought it was pretty great at the time. Got into a lot of trouble with it as a dumb 18 year old.

First car was a 1967 Pontiac Catalina that was a 6 year old hand-me-down from my Dad followed by my first new car purchase. 1975 Toyota Corolla SR-5 Coupe. The Corolla could have probably fit in the trunk of the Pontiac.

1988 BMW M3 - Diamond Schwartz Metallic paint(in 2000) paid $5000 from a guy outside of Boston. Was beat up, but a teenage boy's dream car, dad helped me out on part of it but I worked for 1/2. Totaled it and got a 1996 Jetta 2.slow salvage a couple years later.. saddest day ever.
