Cars I have owned.

Just a list of cars I have owned in my life.

Please know, It's rare that any of these were less than 10 years
old when I bought them, and very rare that I paid $1000 or more.

I have a hard time remembering all of them, so I thought I'd put together
a list. It's a sickness that I inherited from my father, and he blamed his
father, so fair's fair.

Got here from the cargo bicycle group. Great list; longer than mine, but just as diverse. Had an MGB, Volvo 164, TR6, Mini, Austin 1100, Trooper, VW Bus, Jettas, MK1 Rabbit, BMWs, etc. Best ever was the 164 - put 20K on it running up and down the Eastern seaboard without any repairs. Worst was a MK2 German Capri (had a MK1 Capri, and it was great) Favourite was the TR6, followed by a Series 3 Land Rover 88.

Thanks for sharing.
