Red face what OTHER cars have you owned?

They haven't all been 914s y'know.
Talking to a friend about past women and past cars, I developd several, or rather, the following list:
Cars of my past.....
Lost Virginity in a 69 bug with sunroof (yeah!)- I didn;t own that one
Also used my Dad's Honda CVCC after he sold his Austin America.
First in title was a 72 Mercury Capri - a V6 4 speed
Traded the capri for 86 Honda Civic ( my only new car ever)
Sold Civic for more than I paid for it and moved to Germany, where I bought an 85 BMW 320/6 (German spec 2 liter straight 6)
BMW T- boned by 18 wheeler, bought 72 Karmen Ghia after recovery. Sold KG when my brother decided DC property taxes were too much for a car he rarely drove and he sold me his 73 914 2.0 he had owned since 76 or 77. I still own the 914, and have acquired and dismissed since I got it, an 86 SAAB 900S 16 valve, a Volvo 240 wegom, A couple of trucks, and several minivans.

opinions:
The SAAB- solid as Fort Knox, but somewhat faster.
The KG- tiny and low type I VW was just goofy!
Capri- Englands own Mustang!
The BMW- crashworhty ( DON'T ask me how I know...)

So what else do ya drive?

The vehicles that I have owned:

Vehicles that require alot of time in the shop, several tows, and more cash than I have to spend on them. (Hence my signature).

1971 Buick Skylark
1989 Hyundai Excel (say Hyundai why trying to make a vomit sound....thats how i feel about my expierence with that car)
Introducing the two biggest money pits in the world:
1969 VW Baja Bug
1969 VW Beetle

1971 Karmman Ghia
1986 Toyota 4x4 truck (the only one that I have dared to take more than 20 miles out of town. It been the better one so far.....after some TLC and a grand or so when I first got it)

Options:
Something brand new with an extended warrenty so someone else can pay for it to get fixed. Of course we all know what will happen as soon as the warrenty expires......

everybody has had something I want- ,I got a warm feeling for 69 beetles, I liked volvo p1800 as a teenager, cruisin' in the Cad sounds fun, all those VWs, an RX-3, a simca, Datsun Roadster and Sonnett; what a wierd past we have had! No wonder we spend all our time on 914s. There hasn't been quite the universal "VW" from everyone, just most..

78 Toyota Celica
86 Subaru RX Turbo AWD
88 Subaru GL Turbo Wagon (AWD)
74 914 1.8

The ones I have actually owned have been fairly few... In order of acquisition:

81 Honda Accord
74 914 1.8
90 CRX Si
74 914 2.0
90 CRX Si

I still have the last two.

I've had "long-term care and feeding" arrangements with a few other cars, but those were the ones that had my name on the title.
