1973 Opel GT. Not much of a real performer, but that car had loads of character. I also had an '89 Toyota MR2. Pretty much the opposite of the Opel. Good performer, no character.

I've had a bunch, but the '76 Triumph TR-7 stands out... I owned it at age 20 while living in Montana. I was like a friggin rock star!! Had a Van Halen sticker in the back window. It was red with tan interior (some things never change). Most people thought it was a $75k car. Women were weak in the knees.

I had a 1993 BMW 318i, but thats not a sports car...

I just sold my 2002 VW GTI 337...now that was a hoot to drive. Fast as hell and the 6-speed gearbox was the best I've ever driven.
