Default What Kind of Cars Have You Owned

I'm one of those guys who is always swapping one car for another. At least, I used to be. As of late I have stopped doing so and decided to keep my car as long as possible. Ironically my current car, 90 LS400, is by far my favorite. But here's what I've owned:

1977 Buick Century 231 c.i.d. V6 What a piece of crap
1969 Pontiac Firebird 455 c.i.d. TH400 Auto
1990 Camaro RS 305 c.i.d. 5 Speed Manual
1996 Camaro SS 350 c.i.d. 6 Speed Manual
1990 Jeep Cherokee 4.0 Straight Six (this car was fun to thrash on)
1995 Camaro Z28 converted to a SS Clone 350 c.i.d. 6 Speed Manual
1996 Honda Shadow VLX 600 cc, fun but too small
2004 Honda Shadow ACE 750 cc, also fun, but I needed a car
1990 Lexus LS400

It's strange that my car was built 2 years before I started high school- and I GRADUATED 15 years ago!! It's a testament to the quality of this car. I have driven vehicles less than 5 years old that run rougher and have more road noise than mine.

1997 Lexus LS400 (current)
1999 Honda Accord EX-L V6 (still have...for now)

I want to built a collection of Japanese 80s - 90s cars...but what I want next changes every day. Regardless, I've always wanted an '04-'07 Subaru Impreza WRX STi. Or an '03-'05 Infiniti M45.

Car I have owned:
1982 Honda Civic HondaMatic (first car, 2001-2002)
1987 Honda Civic Shuttle 4wd (2002-2004)
1987 Nissan Bluebird (2004-2008)

Current car:
1994 Lexus LS400 (2008- )

Hopefully the LS400 will last a long time, it is by far the best car I have ever own (ok my old cars was quite crappy but you get the point ) and one of the best cars I have ever driven. Do love it.
